I'm wondering about the impact genetics therapy has on soul dynamics. Specifically when a soul is born with what is now known as having "mutated genes" where one or more gene in a chromosome doesn't function properly (see http://mthfr.net/
), which leads to numerous health challenges.
For instance, functional medicine doctors can run a test, MTHFR, to determine where one or more chromosomes don't function properly because the gene is ineffective and thus doesn't express. Usually the discovery is made after the soul is well into mid-life. Though now this kind of testing can be done at a very young age to see if the child's genes are geared towards alcoholism or addiction, depression, cancer, auto-immune disease--all linked to gene deficiency such as MTHFR.
This is presenting for me now because I have recently been diagnosed with one of the missing gene scenarios AND I've been asked to assist a doctor in his functional medicine practice working with addicts, where gene testing and IV nutritional therapy will be part of the rehabilitation.
Speaking for myself, if I had known forty-years ago that I had a mutated gene all the intense health challenges and possibly the addictions I've dealt with wouldn't have usurped my life in the magnitude they have. At the same time, those challenges opened me to higher (and lower) experiences, which pushed me to reach toward mind-body healing and spiritual-soul answers. I may still have reached in that direction, but with less extremes which may have facilitated greater service to the whole, if my health was more stable.
I'm just wondering from an EA perspective, would this advance in medicine be considered progress and support out of patriarchal conditioning? or...
...and testing an infant/child for markers that indicate alcoholism and then supplementing so the child is not genetically geared in that direction...how does that impact the soul. Feels Uranian to me, like a soul is born with a chart that indicates addiction, then say during a transit genetic testing is done and that challenge is "curbed" via intervention.
Genetics is Scorpio/Pluto yes?
Thank you in advance for any and all input.
