The French Paradox refers to the past observation that similar dietary patterns do not necessarily produce similar lifestyle-related disease patterns. In this respect, the French were shown to be less prone to developing cardiovascular disease from saturated fats and cholesterol-rich diets. Other dietary factors were sought to explain the observed differences in epidemiological studies, duly confirmed by clinical intervention trials. Alcohol consumption, omega-6/3 balanced fats, and other socio-psychological habits were identified as potential explanations for the observed differences. This change in paradigm in the way cause-effect health/ill-health relationships are sought – from somatic (body) only, to psychosomatic (mind-body) -, enforces the modern scientifically evidence-based modern concept of holistic health.

From an evolutionary perspective, it is no surprise that the human genome contains some 20% clock genes of various periods; chronomes were first.

It is an important albeit not recognized as such aspect of medicine that environmental rhythms are imprinted in our genes to an extent that they do influence our behavior and health(...)

Interactions between cultural & socio-economical environments on the one hand, physical & biological environments on the other hand, result into behavioral adaptation or mal-adaptation and body/mind health or disease, respectively.

There is continuous interaction of these factors with the individual body/mind balance (occupational stress, diet, lifestyle) – potentially causing mal-adaptation and/or instability, and eventually resulting into dysfunction of various organs in the body and related diseases. Functional lifestyle’s components (TsimTsoum concept) help keeping balance(...)
