Medica Ecologica (Interna/Externa)
Ecological Medicine & Medical Systemics
Medica Ecologica takes a systemic, ecological, environmental, and evolutionary-based approach to medicine. Through this holistic frame that medical systemics provides, we begin to understand the integral internal and external relations that are supportive of health within the individual, the species and the co-evolutionary web of existence as a whole, the truth of which is embodied in the Hermetic phrase, “As above, so below, as within, so without, as the universe, so the soul”.
This Praxis will include an examination of the integrated systems of the body, with a focus being placed on the importance of sustaining a diverse and flourishing ecology with our micro-biota. Similarly, we will scale up, and broaden our understanding of our own position within the diverse ecological, evolutionary, and socio-cultural webs that supports us in the fullness of our wellbeing. Food as medicine, and the need for the integration of holistic design, and permaculture principles in our lived environments will be explored through this pathway.
“Let food be thy medicine and medicine be thy food.”
