Martin Grassberger - REGENERATIVE

The dawn of a new ecological age

We live in an age where we find ourselves confronted with seemingly insoluble problems, many of them stemming from humanity’s increasing alienation from nature and from ourselves. We cannot hold back this development with sustainability, factual knowledge and technological innovation alone. We are on the verge of a paradigm shift: regenerability. It is nature’s own processes and principles – from the tiniest cells to the biggest ecosystems – that serve as a model here. They are a testament to billions of years of evolution towards self-organised, resilient systems. Human beings, too, are a part of this process. Grassberger shows how a fundamental shift in values can regenerate human health, society and economics, allowing them to thrive long-term.

Martin Grassberger - THE INVISIBLE WEB OF LIFE

How microbiomes, ecological diversity and nutrition maintain our health

How can we maintain our physical and mental health in these times of new pandemics, chronic illnesses, increasing urbanisation and constant media bombardment? Based on extensive ecological observations and taking into account the latest scientific insights in microbiome research, Grassberger draws conclusions on the fundamental reciprocal processes between us and our environment – and demonstrates how we can lead a good and healthy life, despite disconcerting developments. In “The Invisible Web Of Life”, Grassberger focuses on the human experience and explains how each individual can protect themselves, their children and the environment.

Martin Grassberger - Quiet Death

Why we need an agricultural revolution if we want a healthy future

While the world population is rapidly heading for 8 billion, and more and more people want to enjoy a slice of prosperity, chronic illnesses are gradually spreading across all age groups and social classes. Warnings about imminent threats such as environmental pollution, soil depletion and loss of biodiversity largely go unheard. Human biologist and doctor Martin Grassberger demonstrates a direct link between the ruthless destruction of nature and the creeping epidemic of chronic illnesses. The insights are sobering, but Grassberger also indicates possible ways to remedy the current global health and environmental crisis. A highly relevant book!
