The Native Network = Balance Of Nature

Native Network

By Linda Wiggen Kraft

A garden is not only plants, it is a network of life forms and forces. It is the community, communication and communing of plants, insects, birds, soil, sun, rain and all parts of the ecosystem called garden. Each part is in relationship. The strongest relationships are those that give life and support to each other and the whole community.

The network of native plants, insects, birds and other parts of the garden form the strongest community because they have evolved over eons to support each other and live together. Native trees, shrubs and plants evolved to be the life support of native insects and birds. The insects pollinate the plants and are protein necessary for bird survival. The birds keep the insects in check protecting food and forest crops. They also find shelter and food in the plants. It’s a cycle, a life cycle. When non-native plants are part of the garden, the community is weakened. Most often non-native plants are not food for insects, therefore they don’t provide food for birds. Native butterflies and moths that dance in our gardens have evolved to survive on specific plants. If these insects do not have those plants they will perish. A case in point is our beloved Monarch butterfly that only survives on asclepias (milkweed) plants. No more asclepias, no more Monarchs. And this is exactly what is happening with the decline of the asclepias plants along the route Monarchs take to winter in Mexico. The steep decline in Monarchs corresponds to the steep decline in asclepias.

We can grow native trees, shrubs and plants in our gardens to strengthen the native network and life of the garden. There are online resources that share information about the community of specific plants to specific insects and bird life. The National Wildlife Federation has a website showing what native insects are kept alive by specific native plants – (www.nwf.org/ NativePlantFinder/). And Audubon Society has a website linking native plants to birds – (www.audubon.org/native-plants)

When you have pain in your back, hips, shoulders and knees you cannot get a good nights sleep, and can miss out on so many things that life has to offer, like playing with your grandkids, taking a walk on the beach or enjoying your favorite activity.

Using Stem Cell therapies, it is possible to encourage the body to regenerate lost and damaged tissue, one cell at a time. We can do even more to end the suffering of people with chronic conditions.

Chronic pain and often debilitating inflammation is known as the silent killer. It does not discriminate on age, race or religion. It strikes all over the United States. Men, women, even hundreds of thousands of children suffer from it. Many of these cases are lumped into a broad category labeled arthritis. This is where we come in, to stop the chronic and recurring suffering.

Our specialists believe in treating the source of the problem, not the ripple effects it causes. Stop the cause and the symptoms go away all on their own.
