Immunity is as old as life – Biestmilch is one of its pillars

or why the species difference doesn’ t matter as much as we think.

Before you read my musings about the importance of immunity you may want know the frame of reference my thoughts are rooted in. Beware, all the underneath said is located at the fringes of textbook knowledge.

Proposition 1
We assume that the organism doesn’t follow the law of cause and effect.
Proposition 2
We assume that their is not a single one cause – one effect only relation in the organism
Proposition 3
We assume that the bacteria and viruses are essential for our survival and well-being
Proposition 4
We assume that our concept of hygiene makes us sick
Proposition 5
We assume that the microbiome we coexist with is the precondition for life.
Proposition 6
The concept of sterile conditions in the body slowly scrambles. It only holds for the skeleton until today
Proposition 7
If you never get ill, you will never enjoy sustainable well-being

No immunity no life – no immunity no performance

Immunity is essential for all beings populating our earth and it is the foundation for all sorts of performances. If you are ill all available energy is first of all dedicated to healing and re-balancing the organism. This does not only apply to humans but to all earthly beings.

Whether you look at plants, insects, birds or mammals they all express the property of immunity. Natural science with its experimental results can underline the assumption made as researchers identified the same receptors of innate immunity all the way through from plants and invertebrates to humans.
These molecules have been conserved genetically over thousands and thousands of years and recognize the huge space of distinct forms of essential molecular patterns we live with in our inside and outside world.
This knowledge may entitle me to conclude that there is no life without immunity.


Didn’t all life start with the emergence of a border, a device that displayed the property to segregate a something from the environment?
By that an entity could emerge that is able to work by following its very own texture of rules and in the same time to communicate with its environment, this communication being vital for its very existence.


The structure that owns this ability of autoclosure on the one hand and openness on the other is the form of the membrane. Once the membrane was in the world life could evolve.
The premise of the membrane that until today guarantees the integrity of life is a condition we coined with the term immunity indicating that the immune system is in charge. This may be to short-sighted as all processes within the borders of an organism serve to sustain the integrity of what we call life.

Nevertheless this reduction is inevitable, if we want to do the research on this topic. So let’s the whole melt down to the term immunity.

How then does the universal principle of immunity evolve in species?

Today we know that the internal and external maternal transmission of essential molecules such as immunoglobulins or LPS of bacteria and viruses induce the immunity. We know that this transmission is a universal phenomenon in all species characterized and patterned by the coevolution with bacteria and viruses. All life be it in the fruit fly, the water bug, the trout, the ant, the quail, or in all the mammals the mother passes on the immunity to the offspring and thus determines the health status of youngsters.

Mothers transfer the microbiome and as an emergent phenomenon the immunity to the offspring. Sources of transfer are the womb, the placenta, amniotic fluid, the vagina, the skin, for the invertebrates the egg and for the vertebrate the breast milk including Biestmilch. The microbiome is the scaffolding for the immune system of the baby to thrive and is foundation for the off-spring to lead a healthy life.


The series of posts that is going to follow during the next weeks wants to touch your heart. And it wants to underline our notion that we have no good reason to assume that we are the crowning work of Creation.



Susann is the biest prototype and head of the team. She is Austrian, has studied medicine, meaning she is a medical doctor and the Biesters' alpha wolf. Susann continuously produces new ideas, is strong in making concepts and is practically always ON FIRE. Without her BIESTMILCH wouldn't be where and what it is today, and anyway - not possible.
