The very basis of our understanding of health and disease is being transformed by an explosion of groundbreaking medical research. Extraordinary new discoveries about beneficial bacteria, viruses and fungi living deep within and throughout the human body, have huge ramifications for practitioners in conventional and complementary medicine alike. Disruptions in this community of microscopic life, known as the human microbiome, are now implicated in a multitude of conditions – from digestive disorders such as IBS and Crohn’s to autism and chronic lung conditions, from inflammatory and autoimmune diseases such as rheumatoid arthritis and ME/CFS, to cancers and even mental health. Yet just as its huge significance is dawning on us, we are realising the microbiome is becoming dangerously degraded due to poor understanding, standard medical practices, diet and lifestyle choices. What does all this mean for our complementary healthcare practice and our models of health and healing? With microbes outnumbering our human cells, it’s time to expand our perceptual fields and relate to the human individual as part of a vast, invisible ecological system – continuous with soil, sea and air.
