Symbiotic relationships with other organisms within our healthcare:

Leeches have been used throughout recorded time from ancient Egypt and Rometo upto the 19th century Europe as a cure-all solution to suck bad-blood from the sick. The Leech is making a comeback in contemporary medicine as a source of anticoagulant to stop blood clotting and to encourage blood circulaion in microsurgery.

Maggots are effective healthcare workers in cleaning wounds from dead cells and produce antibiotics which kill hostile bacteria like MRSA.

Spiders, scorpions and cone shell snails produce venom which form treatments for Parkinson's disease, schizophrenia, depression, stroke, epilepsy and severe pain.
