REFLEXOLOGY - the "Maps of Health"

is a term that is as often misunderstood as frequently as it is used.
More specifically, there are actually three metabolic systems with an
exchange of substances and all three are closely intertwined.
The first of these location we find at the layers of our digestive
system where the food, prepared by the stomach, is taken into our
organism, the indigestible is funnelled through and the leftovers are
to be excreted.
Another change of substances occurs at the membranes of the
cells. There oxygen, nutrients and other vital substances are being
taken into the cell's interior and the remains of the cell processing
are sluiced out of through the cell membranes.
The third and therapeutically most important metabolism takes place
between the first two. Pischinger has described this as the basic
regulatory system. That represents an essential function of the
The connective tissue is our largest system of an organ which
spreads throughout our whole body. It weighs up to twelve kilos and its
basic structure is filled with a tissue fluid in which the cells are
embedded. Since each of the 50 trillion cells of the body cannot be
supplied individually, evolution has created a pool system - our inner
primordial sea. The induced substances are discharged from the vessels
into the connective tissue, where they reach via diffusion and active
transport processes to the cells. On the other way the cells release
their slags from their intra-cellular work into this interior
primordial sea. There, the lymphatic system ensures the removal of the
slags for recycling or elimination. Here at least it should be clear
that this metabolic system is the central element for the life of our
cells and that the well-being of the cells depends on the quality of
our primordial sea.
Is this metabolism charged by too many slags, drug residues,
environmental toxins or poor diet the cells suffer. A clear primordial
sea is also a guarantee for an excellent exchange of information
between the cells (communication by bio-photons according to Popp).
A well-functioning metabolism is an essential factor for successful
reflexology treatments. Therefore, all measures in these treatments are
to be supplemented with accompanies which relieve the metabolism. Then
the body can implement the reflexology impulses appropriately. To
support the metabolism we have the huge potential of the holistic
medicine and homoeopathic remedies at our disposition. These
accompaniments make a significant contribution to our holistic
