Why are we so fearful of infections? When we get a cold and a cough it is always some else who has given it to us somehow its never us giving it to others? Dont touch this — dont touch that — dont share food ect are common statement you may hear around.
I was wondering if a doctor or a therapist fears infections every single day of their life who will treat and who will heal the sick?
Did Mother Teresa die of Leprosy especially since she mostly served and loved leprosy patients?
Immune system is a shared field of heart space. Being heart conscious allows an incredible boost to our immune system. Sharing the fluid field adds to the boosting of the immune system within a family and creates a common microbiome and common gut eco system. Our indian traditional rituals are so beautiful in how they preserve and encourage these eco system within family along with building bonding. If you ask me what is another term for immunity I will call it social bonding.
Do you know why during a Indian wedding ceremony bride and groom are made to eat from single piece of food or sweet and drink water or milk from a single glass? Do you know why they are encouraged to eat from the same plate? In fact this is practiced in many other cultures extended to even communities — for example in Arab communities, Bohra Muslim community, Jain community and many other communities they share a meal from a single extra large plate called the Thaal. The entire family and the extended Family eats from the same plate.
Do you know in most cultures when a baby begins solids at the middle of the first year of life the mother often softens food in her mouth before she feeds her baby. This is common practice in most traditional cultures.
Sharing spaces with an open heart space without fear and judgement is the single most game changer in boosting your immune system. The more we isolate ourselves the more the NEED to further Isolate in times of crisis like epidemic or a pandemic.
Does it mean we discard basic Hygiene ? — the answer is NO that is not the intent of this sharing. It is subtleness that need to be understood here and what we may have moved away from and why so many communicable diseases have topped the charts despite so many inventions of vaccines and antibiotics ect.
Is the sense of loving ‘community’ dying? and what is the meaning of community in real sense. When Science todays tells us we are 99.9 % community of microbes and less than 1% of human cells? Who are we then running away from?
School Whatsapp stirred a wonderful conversation about pros and cons of use of technology based on the newspaper article.
I will share my experiences as a clinician who works with young children and adolescent children and many adults as well who come for Craniosacral treatment. The narrative needs to be widened from just pros and cons of the use of technology to what does the human body experience. ‘Learning’ is not a brain activity alone (it will still give an output bcos brain is like a computer processing unit that will always result in an output so if we have ‘1+2’ it will give you some result ‘3’. It is a linear algorithm processing. what it does not know to do is make an algorithm which is why our scientific quest for AI (Aritificial Intelligence). ‘Human’ Intelligence is not linear at all and the only way it can be developed is by letting your ‘body’ learn with human interaction and contact. There are billions of neurons and microchip memory storage in each cell of human body and every learning experience must store away in billions of these cell and when we draw from the experience it is rich and algorithmic in nature which allows us to process life in non linear fashion. If its is linear our nervous system goes through what is called chronic stress that leads to as you know 100s of diseases and leads to anxiety and depression which is what we see prevalent in current generation. A child can be termed brilliant bcos he learned a piano from youtube but the child’s nervous system is not designed to absorb and process this direct information without human interaction and leaves them with neuro pathways that dont have completed circuitry. But bcos it is data fed into the brain it will throw 1+2=3 as a result and yes a child will learn and produce an output. We see that in ‘brain’ training programs designed to target babies and young child and some even in pregnancy!
