Whenever she is confronted with first graders, Birgit von der G., primary school teacher, notices the tremendous differences between the pupils: "some are vocally enthusiastic at the prospect of finally being in school, while others sit motionless and look at me anxiously. Some are unable to sit still and listen, while others pay absolutely no attention to what I’m trying to teach them and instead focus intensely on their neighbours..." Retain children’s inner openness Birgit von der G. has ...

The memory of water

By Dr Béatrice Milbert, General Practitioner. The first person to speak about the memory of water was Jacques Benveniste, - but his theory concerning the memory of water essentially caused the end of his career. Having brought an extraordinary light to the mysterious aspects of homeopathy and opened the way to new uses for our classical pharmacopeia, Jacques Benveniste found himself deprived of his position as Director of Research at INSERM (French National Institute of Health and Medical ...

What’s new on the amazing life of plants?

By Claire Laurant, ethnobotanist These days we hear a lot about the intelligence, memory and sensitivity of plants. Recent scientific research reveals the astonishing properties of certain species. Let’s not forget that the fundamental characteristics of plants are already quite extraordinary… Using the intermediary of the sun’s energy, they are able to transform CO2 into absorbable substances which are necessary to their vitality (sugars). Certain species do the same with gaseou...

The power of the touch therapy to help patients in distress

By Dominique Neuilly, General Practitioner.  In my work as a physician in a psychiatric hospital, I am regularly confronted with patients' psychic difficulties (somatisation) and with their physical problems. This is often due to secondary effects of psychotropic medications (obesity, diabetes) or addictive behaviour (alcohol, drugs). Many of these patients become trapped in a repeating cycle, with regular relapses and re-hospitalisations. I began to realise there was a ‘missing link’ ...

Stress – the underlying sickness of our civilisation

By Dr Sophie Scheffer, Centre Epidaure, Belgium. Acute, adaptive stress is necessary for our survival. But often, and particularly in our Western life style, stress becomes repetitive and a daily, debilitating occurrence. Stress is a response adapted by the organism in order to deal with danger or a demanding situation. The body switches to a state of extreme vigilance so as to evaluate very quickly what it needs to do. It also activates, the autonomic nervous system, which handles the me...

Are all plants medicinal?

By Claire Laurant, Ethnobotanist, France. About 350,000 different species of plants have been recorded across the planet. Most of our chemical medicines copy molecules of herbal drugs, but are unable to reproduce the complex therapeutic action of a medicinal plant. Plants have the same cellular composition as humans and animals, and have similar enzymatic reactions. Lichens, mosses, and horsetails appeared in the Primary era and their decomposition fertilized the soil to produce humus. Without p...

Air pollution on the rise

It is the silent killer. As societies become more industrialised we put more pressure on the planet. But the completion of that 'vicious circle' is when this pressure comes back on us, as an additional health burden. Outdoor air pollution is a classic example - it has risen 8% in the last 5 years and according to WHO, the impact on health is also rising. WHO collected data from 3,000 cities around the world and while the health impacts of rising pollution are worst in fast-growing countr...
