From what homeopathic remedies are not made! For me, as a mother of a little nature lover, the preparations of the animal kingdom were and are of special interest. You can also study the Material of Medicine, watch an informative video, and read a fairy tale for the night about our younger brothers and, based on all this, create your own idea of the drug.
"Animal medicines" in turn are produced from the whole animal, from milk, from blood, or from a part of the body. In my worldview, there were drugs made of excreta separately.
It always seemed to me that the blood, milk, feathers and wool is much more noble than ... And in order to prescribe poop, I'm sorry, you must very much disrespect your patient. This is what I thought until recently. And I did not prescribe it.
But there was a pruving of bear excrement... And I, as well as other members of the group, discovered such layers and depths of this drug, which took my breath away! And recently, walking around the zoo with my son, I caught myself thinking that I really want to collect excrements right from all animals and birds to learn their deepest essence. If I saw at least one caretaker near the cages, I would definitely ask for something))).
And in my head, right during the walk, all the information about the stomach, which I knew and practiced once, appeared.
"Stomach" has one root with the word "life" not for nothing. In almost all ancient healing systems, the work with the stomach stands on one of the important places.
For example, in Eastern practices, the stomach was compared with the source of life, the sea from which everything is born. Ancient Taoists believed that internal organs are the connecting link between the human body - "Microcosmos" and the Universe - "Macrocosmos" from which we get the energy of life. All emotions, thoughts and feelings are closely linked to the internal organs.
And modern science confirms the presence of the abdominal brain, working in close collaboration with the brain. When this interaction is disturbed, physical and mental problems arise. An important role in ensuring the connection between these two structures plays - attention! - intestinal bacteria. They affect the production of hormones, as well as send signals to the brain through the vagus nerve. And they affect the body deeply.
Numerous studies have been conducted on mice, which revealed a connection between disturbance of intestinal microflora and disorders of the immune, metabolic and mental spectrum! In laboratories, gnotobiotic mice are bred. Their intestines are either not inhabited by any microflora, or only those microorganisms that scientists have placed in it live in it. And what did it turn out to be?
First, "sterile" poor people suffer from all types of immunity.
The number of lymphocytes producing immunoglobulins A (local antibodies) decreases significantly. The structure of important immune organs - intestinal lymphatic follicles - is disturbed, where lymphocytes and macrophages become sensitized, i.e. they become sensitive to strangers. Without the influence of bacteria, the production of gamma-interferon that suppresses the spread of viruses is disturbed. In addition, healthy normal microflora, firmly occupying its position, does not allow the reproduction of the pathogenic flora.
Secondly, a connection between microorganisms inhabiting the intestines and systemic diseases has been found.
I will list some: obesity, diabetes mellitus, atherosclerosis, bronchial asthma. The list, I think, can be continued.
Thirdly, there are close correlations between the state of the intestinal microflora and the psycho-emotional state of the "host" organism.
Bacteria produce neurotransmitters-serotonin, acetylcholine, gamma-aminobutyric acid, dopamine. These are substances responsible for stability or instability of mood, level of stress resistance, concentration and other mental functions. The above-mentioned "sterile" mice behave differently than their counterparts with normal microflora. They are more disintegrated and aimless. The connection between intestinal flora disturbance and autism spectrum disorders has been proved. Again, in mice.
Fourth and fifth, probably, you can write a lot of interesting things too. But now let's stop and think about the microorganisms that live their amazing life inside us, interact with each other and with us, being not so simple creatures.
Yes, and I invite you to study the excrements and intestinal noses and comprehend through them the deep processes in Micro and Macrocosmos!!
