In the 1980s, a group of French researchers, inspired Georges Lakhovsky’s work on body-environment interactions (especially on cellular oscillation) and that of Barbara McClintock (Nobel Prize in Medicine, 1983) on spontaneous genetic mutations, began to observe and evaluate the impact of the environment (natural, relational, and cultural) on the vitality and self-regulation of the body. Thus, they started to conduct their first studies at the Faculté d’Orsay (Paris) on the emerging properties presented by trace metals when combined according to specific protocols, and their impact on the circulation of vital currents.

An approach based on the assumption that the body is covered by a network of currents that ensure both real-time body-psyche communication and the body-environment relationship. This is a hyper-complex network that develops very early-on in embryonic development (before the hormonal and nervous system) to circulate the (electromagnetic) pulses necessary to ensure the cooperation, cellular coordination, and coherence of the body-psyche system.

Numerous disciplines have contributed, along with Asian traditions, to the development of Nutripuncture (PNEI, quantum medicine, neuroscience, psychology, microbiology, etc.).

A long road has been traveled, starting with the thousand-year-old principles of Asian medicine, to integrate them into the psycho-physical dynamic of modern humans, immersed in an environment saturated with information and many stimuli, much different from the one that, several thousands of years ago, enabled the understanding of relationships between environment and background, certainly simpler, and less contaminated.

Today humans are faced with a highly articulate, hyper-stimulating environment; they must process a large volume of information in real time, interact with a hyper-complex global society, and manage the relationships and conflicts that stem from it by calling upon their internal resources, often sorely tested by stress.

In Nutripuncture, the individual is always observed in his or her context, from which he or she is inseparable, as it is the source of essential information on the development of his or her faculties. Thus, the environment plays a definitive role in the creation of cognitive, sensory, and individual vocal potential.

It is clear that without qualitatively and quantitatively adequate stimuli, the vital currents (or meridians) that regulate body-psyche communication, as well as individual-environment interaction, will circulate more slowly, leaving part of the potential that everyone could express inactive.
