describe the state of equilibrium, Cannon conied the
(omois = alike and stasis = situation) which points
out the capacity of the body to conform to the outside
and to answer to the agents which threaten the health.
It is easy to observe, during a walk on mountain, that
when the oxigen partial pressure decreases, automaticaly
the respiratory frequence changes: the body, in its
wisdom, breathes faster to keep constant the oxigen
levels. This means that in the body there are sophisticated
sensors which notice immediately and in a precise way
a lot of parameters (pressure, heat, luminous intensity,
concentration in the air of chemical elements, noises,
etc.) that continuously elaborate to conform to the
new conditions with the least waste of energy. We have
a limited view of the enormous
capacities of our body !!!!
For these reasons the Naturopati uses stimolus compatible
with the selfcure capacities of the body and, in particular,
the natural agents of our life: air, water, exercise,
sun, relax, food.
