Ireland is Balancing its Snake Medicine.

Sorry St Paddy, Snakes are making a comeback in the emerald Isles

Sorry St Paddy, Snakes are making a comeback in the emerald Isles

I read an interesting piece of news in the popular science blog the other day and it started me thinking about how Karma loves to be balanced and how animals teach us when we let them.

 

Scientists in Ireland are working on a medicine to treat cancer that is based on the targeting skills of snake venom.  They are doing some gene manipulation of rattle snake venom to make it target unbalanced cancer cells and leave balanced and properly formed cells alone.

 

Does anyone think that the place that Sainted Patrick for driving out the snakes is now importing snakes back in for healing purposes is incredibly ironic?  It is a great example of Nature balancing itself out though.

 

If there were snakes on the island I hardly think one man in the middle ages could have tipped the balance of a whole eco system to eliminate one predator and not affect something else.  Perhaps it contributed to a rodent population upsurge that helped spread the black death?  Remember Karma always has the last word.

 

I am glad to hear that cancer treatments are continuing to get closer to humane cures and even more glad to hear that ireland is facing its snake fear.  Only good can come from this and it is a strong sign that people are learning to live in balance and see the good in all creatures.  Even if you have to look for it under a microscope.

 

It is interesting too that snakes are so often associated with healing in many different cultures.  The Jews first associated them with healing as far back as the incident with Moses when the people were instructed to show a staff with two snakes upon it as a healing for a plague they experienced in the desert between Egypt and the promised land.

 

The Caduceus of course is two snakes wound around a staff.

 

The greeks had an extensive use of healing animals in Alcepius Temples.

 

It is nice to see snakes living up to their shamanic duty.  I with the Irish researchers much inspiration.
