How Bio-terrain Affects Disease Conditions
Do you wonder why one family member is prone to a devastating disease like Morgellons or simply catching the Flu and other family members are not? Why are some people more susceptible to illness than others?
There are many external factors which contribute to the degradation of our internal health. Just as our external environment is important in determining our state of being, there is an internal environment, our “Bio- Terrain” that is equally important.
There is a correlation between our environment, both the inner and outer, and disease. Bio-terrain refers to the environment that surrounds the cells of our bodies. It contains the fluids, the nutrients, the minerals and trace elements, adjacent cells of all types, and a host of microorganisms both good and bad.
An interesting fact about our bodies - we are made of approximately 7 trillion human cells and 12 trillion non-human cells; virus, bacteria, parasite, fungus. We are host to more cells that are non-human than are human. This fact becomes very important to recognize when it comes to maintaining the balance of the biological terrain because the loss of internal balance gives these microbes and even greater upper hand for opportunistic diseases.
When our bio-terrain is overloaded with toxins and pathogens (fungii, molds, viruses, bacterium, etc.); lacks essential minerals and nutrients; is either too acidic or too alkaline; then our cell’s vitality is compromised and our immune system is overworked.
When the bio-terrain is out of balance, our bodies become susceptible to illnesses, fatigue, and a host of other maladies. A healthy, vibrant bio-terrain is fundamental to true health, because disease can be easily resisted and cannot establish the conditions that would result in illness.
Factors that affect biological terrain:
Pollution is Number 1!
Our external environment has become filled with thousands of pollutants that can have devastating impacts on the air, the water, and the soil. Enormous loads of horrifying lethal chemicals and atomic waste have been dumped into our waters where they lie, waiting like time bombs to detonate and destroy.
Testing by the CDC
The Center for Disease Control conducted a test involving 2,400 adults and children, documenting more than two hundred synthetic chemical toxins found in the subjects' bodies, with hundreds more chemicals suspected to be present.
“Living on Planet Earth is Toxic to Our Health” – CDC, 1997
Toxins in our food and water.
The peer-review journal Environmental Science & Technology published a paper detailing the chemical analysis of thirty-two food products. Ice cream, eggs, milk, butter, cheese, chicken, and turkey had high levels of PBDE, a common fire retardant chemical. Recent water testing revealed that more than 60% of the rivers and streams in the state of California contained high levels of Prozac, Ritalin, and different forms of antibiotics. Once these chemicals get in the human body they can persist in tissues for years, stored in fatty tissues and organs alike, and their effects can perhaps last for a lifetime.
What does this mean for human health?
The result of this - Mother Earth is not a healthy planet. Nor are the inhabitants of the planet. In the past 100 years, cancer mortality rate has gone from 3% of all deaths to 20%. The incidence of diabetes went from 0.1% of the population to 20%! Heart disease went from being almost nonexistent to killing more than 700,000 people a year in the US.
We are discovering a stronger correlation between our external environmental health, including those aspects we internalize through the food we eat and liquids we drink, and our state of physical health. It is apparent that our inner environment is a reflection of our toxic outer environment. The health of our internal environment, our bio-terrain, is what many microbiologists and scientists are finding determines our state of wellness.
