Our childhood summers were normally spent in Troon, on the west coast of Scotland where we visited our Grandparents. Nearly every day was spent on the beach where we would watch the local flounders glide along the sea bed.
One day, we jumped into the water as normal and both started feeling stinging sensations all over our body. We were told that we had been stung by a Jellyfish and that the best way to get rid of the sting was to bathe the sore parts in Sea water.
Seawater contains 100s of millions of Microbes in one teaspoon of water.
So why on earth is seawater so successful in healing wounds when it is obviously absolutely teaming with millions of “unpleasant” organisms? Surely you would be introducing microbes onto already damaged skin, with the potential for dangerous infections?
Seawater is not just safe but in fact beneficial for damaged skin, and so this curious paradox arises:
On the one hand the medical profession had been at the vanguard of convincing us that minimising exposure with any microbes was beneficial, while the evidence of seawater appeared to totally contradict this?
Could it be that our over over-sanitized modern culture was actually now creating more health problems than it was solving? Had the so-called experts’ obsession with disinfecting our surroundings and destroying all species of bacteria and viruses meant that they had completely overlooked how complex natural systems, including the human body, worked?
