Abstract: Pain-repair is often confused with pain-injury. However, the attitudes to follow are very different. In search of the meaning of our feelings, let us not forget that their interpretation is conscious but their creation is bodily. To regain their property is to say “This body is mine”. Indeed, this property is lost today in information networks where the drowned brain abandons it to foreign interpretations. It then traps itself in a medical labyrinth from which it could get out by a very simple way: reconnect with the detail of its bodily sensations. A sedentary lifestyle promotes disconnection and reduces the meaning of sensory signals. Pain is useful to physical assets, necessary brake after injury, strengthening if limits are exceeded. This discrimination does not exist among the sedentary. Faced with stationary pain in the absence of activity, she thinks she is the victim of a hidden lesion.
Cancer, a return to the roots
Layers of cooperation A dozen years ago, I presented my fellow rheumatologists with an original topo on the origin of autoimmune diseases, entitled “Strata: from bacteria to rheumatizer”. I developed an ontological vision from the fundamental organization of life. The ‘strata’ are, starting from the molecules, their fusion into replicant biomolecules, their organization into micelles, … Read more
Is osteopathy scientific?
Alternative medicine? The density of osteopaths in France is a record (49 per 100,000 inhabitants) that even exceeds the USA, the country where the specialty was born.

Dispossessing yourself of chronic pain
Beautiful end-of-century horizon “No one should suffer anymore!”. The scoop dates back to the 1990s. Philanthropism or marketing operation? I will discuss this in a complementary article. People are encouraged to dispossess themselves of their pain, take it to the doctor. Waiting, confident, that he will reduce it to ashes. Some traces would have been … Read more
What is the origin of long COVID?
This article in no way denigrates the existence of the symptoms of long Covid, which are proven. Simulators are rare. However, this syndrome can be self-created. In truth it is an expected phenomenon, unavoidable. It is mandatory that a disease as mediatized and socially as disruptive as Covid causes sequelae and chronic forms. No matter … Read more
How to overcome your back pain?
The quick reading of Philippe Bazard’s book pushes me to a new post on the subject. The reductions made by laymen are staggering. Bazard reminds me of Freud, who wanted to make his Oedipus complex the engine of the neurotic dysfunction of the unconscious. Bazard, on the other hand, makes stress and anxiety the engine … Read more
The end of life is still life? Euthanasia in question
Life, one god or crowd of different miracles? Even the most cynical and deconstructing thinkers have their deities. So it is michel Houellebecq and in his wake Erwan Le Morhedec, who publishes ‘End of life in the Republic, before turning off the light’, a tribune against euthanasia. In them life is a divinity. As such … Read more
My consciousness? Not aware No week of medical career has passed without me hearing, in the mouth of a manifest overweight patient: “Yet you know, doctor, I eat almost nothing!” Why go to conflict? It is already with oneself, with one’s own common sense. I kindly support this one. “We don’t absorb ambient air. There … Read more
