Conference Papers Year : 2015



Man-made chemicals accumulate in Earth soils and waters: local systematic use of drugs creates systemic problems for our species survival. Our " Take-Make-Waste " society is not sustainable. Systemic solutions must arise at local and global levels. HOW chronobiology, for a better healthcare, and lithotherapy, for a better welfare, could be useful systemic solutions for prevention of such systemic problems? The temporal organisation of living systems is evidenced as an innate and inheritable specific network of clocks that cannot be changed. But knowing these endogenous clocks functioning allows to understand WHEN and WHY therapeutic strategies are efficient or not. Sleep agenda recording and individual vigil chronotypes determination and their respect is the best way to avoid scholars' failure. Performance changes are depending on chronotypes and societal time changes. Results of students' competency tests (reports, talks, experimentations) are significantly increased (from 20% to 50%) when done AT THE RIGHT TIME. Man is an Earth clock shaped species. The minimal and maximal durations of all sleep cycles of a night obey a relationship that results from interactions between endogenous clocks and exogenous ones. All Earth living systems share a common ecoexotope of survival that is temporally structured by solar, lunar and terrestrial rhythms. These rhythms are synchronisers for our endophysiotope clocks. But some people are more sensitive to them than others and someones are resistant. Man night sleep changes depend on lunar cycles entrainment. Our Earth-hosted organism is physiologically structured with Earth as a fixed point and the analysis of sleep records points to circa-annual solar rhythms that can be considered as controls for the evidence of circa-monthly lunar rhythms. WHAT methodology to evidence temporal organisations of living systems and their physiological responses? Only individual longitudinal measurements must be used. Into controlled network of clocks, different frequencies are running depending on responses to endogenous or exogenous changes. Not only " on " stimuli but also " off " ones have effects. For 1 clock, its latency phase duration is always equal to at least 1 period of the rhythm. HOW long is the latency of a network of clocks? WHAT methodology to evidence lithotherapeutic effects? Stimuli responses must be tested according to a double-blind placebo-controlled survey. WHAT mineral to use FOR WHAT to do? It is a a priori complex study! WHAT scaling to use?, FOR WHAT treatment?, WHAT mineral to chose and WHY?, HOW and WHEN to treat? The characterisation of jade or jasper varieties, for example, is a challenge. The first difficulty is to identify commercial affordable sources of jade, nephrite and serpentinite, for testing for treatment of night urination difficulties. Each control, placebo or treatment record is lasting at least 120 days. Compared with control, jadeite or nephrite enhances night quality with a decrease of at least 15 fold of awakenings and urinations. Depending on the jade variety, and its trace elements, properties change. Nephrite suits better with a 20 fold enhancement. The highest of all placebo effects was below a 4 fold increase. The mineral crystal structure is evidenced to have an action. The area of contact of a stone with the skin is the limiting factor of an energy transfer. The day phase of our life is structured in cycles as the night phase is. Placebo effects are greater during the conscious day phase than during the unconscious night one, but red jasper treatment enhances significantly the number and the intensity of diurnal physical working.
