Microbial Balancing If Everywhere In Nature

In every ecosystem on Earth, vital elements (eg, minerals) necessary for life are successively integrated into living compounds of biology for enrichment as organic compounds such as enzymes and amino acids. After completing their biological tasks, such compounds and other by-products are released as waste or decayed material. This continual transforming of elements is a renewal process that is indispensable to the maintenance of life in micro-organisms, plants, animals and humans, just as is the cyclic breathing in of oxygen by animals and humans to replenish the body’s blood and cells, and the harnessing of the sun’s energy for vitality and other essential processes like photosynthesis in plants.

A critical function in nature’s renewal process is microbial balancing. Microbial balancing is a process found in every natural unpolluted ecosystem that displays balanced microbial ecology where disease is controlled through competitive exclusion to ensure that pathogenic microbes (germs) do not dominate their beneficial counterparts.

To function normally, natural microbial communities that interact with, reside on the surface of, or are an internal part of the biology of living organisms, are populated with three types of microbes:

beneficial microbes (often referred to as “good bacteria”)that support an organism’s normal growth and development and fight disease; in animals and humans these microbes also help balance intestinal flora and provide vital support to the immune system;

pathogenic microbes (often referred to as “bad bacteria” and “anaerobic pathogens” that flourish in the absence of oxygen); pathogens play a natural role in facilitating the decay part of regeneration but also propagate disease and can produce harmful substances that, for example, may irritate the lining of intestines and create other serious conditions; anaerobic pathogens can take many forms including certain types of viruses, bacteria, parasites, fungi, yeast, mould and protozoa;

neutral microbes that collaborate with both beneficial and pathogenic microbes and on their own can have a positive or negative effect on wellbeing and decay.

In plants, soil, animals and humans, these three types of microbes are essentially competing with each other for space and nutrients. When a complex living organism (like a human being) is in a generally healthy state, a dynamic microbial condition approximating balance is achieved where there are just enough life-supporting beneficial microbes and neutrals to counter the life-degenerating effects of the pathogens and to perform essential functions that support healthy growth, regeneration, and prevent early decay and disease through competitive exclusion of unwanted pathogens and removal, where possible of external pollutants and toxins.

Achieving the condition of microbial balance is the way in which nature works in natural unpolluted thriving communities of living organisms. In a healthy intestinal tract in animals and humans, a balance is found, for example, where the pathogenic bacteria are held in check and there are enough beneficial bacteria present to perform digestive and regenerative functions. Research suggests that a healthy balance of intestinal flora can be expected to comprise around 80% or more good and neutral bacteria and 20% or less pathogenic bacteria.

As already noted, pathogenic microbes play an essential role in the biology and cell regeneration processes of all living organisms by assisting in the decay of old cells to make way for new growth. However, an abundance and diversity of beneficial microbes is essential for organisms to reach their potential throughout the major part of their life cycle. The ascendency of pathogens during an organism’s early growth and maturity can accelerate decay and disease, shorten its life cycle, and even lead to the breakdown in natural defences across communities of such organisms and the ecosystem itself.

Life on Earth is continuously subjected to factors that change microbial balance, such as air pollution, improper waste disposal, and poor ecological management that degrades soil and water systems. Food contamination and poor diets can also promote the growth of undesirable pathogens. However, it is possible to take deliberate action to restore the integrity of soil, plant, water, air, and the digestive tract (gut) in humans and animals through the addition of beneficial microbes, nutrients and minerals (eg, in the form of a natural live fermenting nutrient-rich microbial balancing probiotic).

Microbial balancing technologies involve the addition of natural beneficial microbes to an environment that is out of balance and where pathogenic microbes are in the ascendency. Such technologies aim to replicate processes that nature uses to foster balanced biological processes that are essential for general wellbeing. In this regard, microbial balancing is a radically different and fundamentally more nature-coherent approach to other methods that focus, for example, on germ elimination. Microbial balancing works to maintain naturally balanced microbial species as “collaborative communities” in virtually the same manner as occurs in natural unpolluted ecosystems of balanced microbial ecology.

Within the concept of microbial balancing, there is a critical relationship between coherence and energy transfer. This relationship occurs all throughout nature, and its importance to the efficiency of energy harnessing and generation is perhaps one of the least known yet vitally important principles in modern scientific and technological understanding and development. By way of example, there must be coherence in the function of a soil, eg, through proper mineral diversity, content and overall health to support the biochemical sequence needed for healthy plant growth, without which optimal photosynthesis can never occur in plants.  Coherence in soil is an indicator of soil health. Soil coherence is significantly enhanced with microbial balancing through the application of photo-synthetic bacteria. Coherence in a plant affects the probability of energy or nutrient transport and affects a plant’s chemical dynamics, the quantum effects of which are clearly present in light-harvesting photon-sensitive antenna proteins of plant cells. 

At SoiLife Australia, microbial balancing products are designed to assist in restoring microbial balance to: the soil, where there is the greatest diversity and abundance of microbes on the Earth; and plants, which have microbes on their surface and rely on the diversity and abundance of microbes in the soil for nutrient cycling.
