The Natural Healing of Dolphins


Fossil evidence shows us that these magical creatures have been around for some 25 million years, and there is no denying the special bond that exists between dolphins and humans.

In Ancient Greece, to kill a dolphin was a crime punishable by death. They were sacred to Poseidon, the god of the sea, and the first recorded study of dolphins was undertaken by the ancient Greek philosopher, Aristotle. Both Greek and Roman accounts describe dolphins befriending humans, saving sailors from drowning and helping fishermen to catch fish.

Today, similar stories are told, and include the amazing stories of the healing of autism, psychosomatic diseases and even in some rare cases, cancer, through interaction with these very special creatures.

Most of us are aware of the accounts of people who have had the unforgettable experience of swimming with dolphins, or even the uplifting feeling of seeing a dolphin swimming gracefully through the water.  But, how do dolphins actually heal?

Scientific studies have produced evidence that dolphins trigger the healing process in humans by boosting the production of T-cells and endorphins, through their sonar. They have concluded after patient and dolphin interaction, that there is a far greater harmony between the left and right sides of the brain.

Therapists believe that a dolphin's sonar causes a cavitation (shock wave) inside the soft body tissues of the human body. It causes a ripping apart of molecules, which actually changes the bio molecular structure. Many hospitals already use a machine similar to a dolphin's sonar, to break up kidney and gall stones.

Dolphins are among the most intelligent animals, friendly and playful. They offer unconditional love, and I believe our affinity with them in many ways is because we see by their example, how we are meant to be.
