A shaman said: “ you have watches, we have time”.

Actually we all live in a straightforward time, going from A to B, from past to future and we’re convinced it is the unique real time. But Einstein said the time is curved, not straightforward, so we can discover a different way to live the time that is circular, where A and B touch themselves, and so, past and future touch themselves as well. Accordingly, considering a circular time, youth and old age acquire a new meaning, very interesting to explore. Actually to have or not to have time, is not a privilege, has to do with our freedom.

Anacardium: Memory loss is abrupt. It can be found in the elderly or persons who are over-fatigued, nervous.

Anacardium mental, nervous or even gastric disorders always improve with rest. Baryta carbonica: Memory loss can affect children who are unable to fix their attention, they forget any recommendation, whose training and education are impossible. In adults and the elderly memory loss is relevant to their names, some common use words, the topography of a neighborhood, which explains why they get lost in the streets they know well. In children, this memory loss is related to mental development delay. The child is generally weak, with slight delay of mental and physical development, and hypertrophy of adenoid tissues, tonsils and lymph nodes. The adult and the elderly are arteriosclerosis in hypertension that leads to a state of physical and mental weakening. Colibacillinum: Loss of short term memory in patients suffering from intestinal colibacillosis or genitourinary infection. The subject is unable to remember what they are reading or listening to. In addition, they often use, during conversation, one word for another. Lycopodium: It is very particular memory loss.

Gut microbiota-bone axis

Gut microbiota-bone axis

Have already for some years now that we talk and we study the immense world of the microbiota, an important regulator of homeostasis of the body, including intestinal and extra-intestinal effects, even you compare it to an immense body of him with all his independent features; it is also considered a “second brain”, but the most interesting discovery in recent months, carried out by the University of Toronto, Canada, is its close relationship with the skeletal system. For several years he was associated with the beneficial relationship between the osteoporotic disease and microbiota, but this study focuses on the effect of the influence of the intestinal microbial communities and molecules that synthesize and regulate bone health. While research in this area is limited, the results of preclinical studies claim that the intestinal microbiota has a positive impact on the parameters of bone mineral density and strength. Moreover, the administration of probiotics in preclinical models have demonstrated greater bone mineralization and increased bone strength in treated patients. The kind of preferential bacteria that has shown these beneficial effects on bone is Lactobacillus and then lactobacilli are among the best candidates for future clinical intervention studies. However, their effectiveness depends on the stage of growth, in fact, usually it is the first few years of life that are an important opportunity to determine bone health, especially through the modulation of the microbiota. Also, the difference of sex specific influences the efficacy of probiotics. Although auspicious, many questions about the microbiota-axis bones require consideration of potential mechanisms; specific effectiveness in relation to sex; the effective dose of probiotics; and the timing and the duration of treatment. But we can definitely say that this study opens up another interesting port on the universe of the intestinal...
