This is interesting, the presence of a particular type of mite causing a dramatic increase in the presence of a particular type of virus… hmm..
I noticed this in the comments:
Research shows that the varroa mite might only be the external
feature of an imbalance in the life of a bee hive. The good news today is that
European and now North American, Californian- and Canadian beekeepers are experiencing surprising and encouraging results by using a holistic approach aimed at reintroducing a healthy ecological equilibrium in hives, so bees once again can find the conditions that are appropriate for them.
From a macrobiotic viewpoint, this sort of thinking is absolutely correct. The presence of any sort of invading entity is largely symptomatic of some level of imbalance within the organism. Humans (or any other creature) do not fall ill unless the conditions within their body(ies) contribute toward illness.
Think about it… the “world” within us functions the same as the world outside of us - what happens to an organism if you destroy it’s habitat? It dies… and what happens to organisms living in a beneficial habitat? They thrive.
So then, why are the incidences of all sorts of bacteria and viruses on the rise around the world hmm?
