« Our goal in introducing homeopathy into the Tibetan community is to offer a less costly treatment, able to complement a quality allopathic medicine, sometimes rather expensive, not always necessary, and not always meeting everyone's needs. Homeopathy can also complement the work of traditional Tibetan medicine. In this active transfer of knowledge, we are not only concerned with curing patients in situ, but with passing on our technique so it can henceforth be beneficial to the local population.
Why homeopathy ? Homeopathy is a western medical approach that has been in use for over two centuries. The practice of homeopathy is economical, respecting human beings and the environment.
This book is very simple. It is divided into three parts. An introduction outlining the main theories of homeopathy, with examples of clinical cases : the basis of homeopathy. A brief Materia Medica work, that is to say a limited list of fundamental homeopathic medicines and their description the tools of homeopathy. The treatment : the goals and the results of homeopathy. There is an index at the end. The book is written in English with a Tibetan translation. It is the first homeopathic book in Tibetan. We hope it will be useful for the Tibetan people. » (Dr. Bernard LONG)
A complete overview of business, logistical and economic issues in the Mediterranean.
Since the end of the 1980s, new artistic practices have emerged along with the spread of digital technology. These artists who today are beginning to garner recognition on the international contemporary art scene have moved into entirely new territories by using digital technology such as sensors, data bases, robots, virtual worlds, immersive apparatus, games, social networks, video surveillance, computer viruses, etc.By reason of the very nature of these supports, they have placed the spectator at the heart of artistic preoccupations, focusing notably on the notion of relationships as well as social and environmental issues.This book presents the most recent trends in new media art while providing the keys necessary for understanding and analyzing the work of the these resolutely contemporary creators.This ebook is a partnership with ECV-École de Communication Visuelle and MCD, Musiques et cultures Digitales.
The 2012 edition of Mediterra takes the mobilising potential of the Mediterranean Diet as a basis and proposes a multidimensional itinerary involving sociodemographics, health, ecology, enterprise, geo-economics and citizens' initiative.
Consumers in the countries of the Mediterranean Basin have progressively changed their dietary practices as they have gradually become caught up in the dynamics of urbanisation and the globalisation of agricultural trade. They are adhering less and less to the Mediterranean Diet, despite the fact that it is the basis of their identity and one of the major assets of the region. Pressures on natural resources and the emergence of new private actors are compounding the complexity of diet-related issues.
Already the subject of widespread sociocultural and scientific debate and research, the Mediterranean Diet merits reconsideration from the political point of view given the growing awareness of the strategic dimension of agriculture and the crucial role played by food production in the stability and development of societies. This diet, whose health-promoting virtues are widely recognised and which UNESCO has now listed as part of the intangible cultural heritage of humanity, is now raising questions in the fields of environmental responsibility and political action to promote greater regional cooperation.
This report has been produced under the direction of the International Centre for Advanced Mediterranean Agronomic Studies (CIHEAM), which is an intergovernmental organisation for training, research and cooperation in the fields of agriculture, food and sustainable rural development in the Mediterranean region.
