Ira Pastor, CEO at Bioquark Inc., in Phila- delphia, a life sciences company developing biologic products to regenerate and repair human organs and tissues. “We live with other organisms which from a health and wellness perspective are much further advanced than humans. No other spe- cies tries to cure with any single solution. Nature employs multiple options. We’re not appropriately imitating nature yet. We need to do more.” Cindy Engel, Ph.D., of Suffolk, En-


gland, author ofWild Health: Lessons in Natural Wellness from the Animal Kingdom, says, “Animals rely on plants to provide them with the essentials of life, making their health intimately dependent on plant chemistry to provide everything they need to grow, repair damage and reproduce.” She continues, “Wild animals carry


diseases that affect livestock and humans. It’s sensible to explore why they’re success- ful in fending off the worst effects in order to find ways to improve our own health, in- stead of just trying to eradicate the disease. We can learn from behavioral self-help strategies animals employ.” Accomplishing this is more difficult than ever, she believes, because today’s severely shrinking habitat makes it hard to find truly wild animals and plants. “Over the last 100 years, we’ve done a


horrible disservice to all life by destroying habitat and exploring only a small per- centage of what nature has to offer,” agrees Pastor. “As patents expire, pharma has to change. It’s important to develop botani- cals. We’re advised to vary our diet and ex- ercise, yet take the same dose of the same pill daily. We’ve studied dead organisms under microscopes, but living organisms, even as small as microbes, can communi- cate helpful positive reactions.” Western medicine has strayed from


what nature offers to keep us healthy. Now is the time to take care of both the planet and all living beings on it. “We’ve discard- ed thousands of years of evidence,” says Pastor. “We cannot destroy the bounty of possibilities.”
