Abstract : The core of the Taoism philosophy of the optimal balance between Yin-Yang is the same as the meden agan Antique Greek philosophy [4]. Both agreed that sustainability is obtained neither through a greater efficiency (yang excess) nor through a greater resilience (yin excess) but with an in-between optimal balance, a window of viability. From ny between Man and Nature is the systemic way for sustainability and Societies have to respect the laws of Nature [7]. Taoism principles made their proofs in ecology [9], which is the economy of Nature: too little diversity (yang excess) leads towards breakage, too much (yin excess) leads to stagnation, and in economy: complementary currencies of diverse types enable economy to flow back towards greater sustainability [18]. Unless proved otherwise, every living system is rhythmic [3, 6, 7]. Biological rhythms are essential components of homeostasis, and periodicity is inherited [28]. Major pathologies result from rhythm disruption. Drugs show rhythmic variations in pharmacokinetics and pharmacodynamics [1]. Drugs abuse makes money but has triggered antibiotic resistances and environmental pollution [5]. Other ways for quality-of-life restoration are needed [8, 14]. Since 5000 years, with antique Egyptian medicine and traditional Chinese medicine, foot reflexotherapy was experimented and taught, with success. With time the energetic principles were forgotten and it was misapplied and rejected by modern occidental chemical medicine. But with the failure of more and more aggressive treatments it was re-discovered. Foot reflexotherapy [2] can be used for diagnosis and as a tool [10] for chronic pain, vascular flow and lung or breast cancer treatments [21]. In a study, with a significant number of patients, 100% improvement was found [15]. How to summarize what the research knows? How to use reflexotherapy tools? How to prove their efficiency? [8, 13] Energetic reflexotherapy results of 12 years of monitoring, with 8 to 85 years old men and women, taking drugs or not, were randomized against foot massage or non-energetic reflexology results [11], as ‘placebos‘ [6, 12], and general practitioner, acupuncturist, physiotherapist, rheumatologist, endocrinologist, neurologist or osteopath,results, as ‘controls‘. Improvements were significant for: -exhaustion, insomnia, night awakenings, anxiety, hypersensitivity, depression, stress, agitation, confusion, dizziness, ictus, memory loss, headaches, migraine, -cognitive or motor dysfunction, traumas; -anorexia, loss of appetite, excess weight, obesity, -sugar or tobacco addiction, perverted taste sensation; -diarrhea, constipation, intestinal obstruction, abdominal discomfort, flatulence, colitis, -stomach discomfort, irritation, ebb or ulcer, dysphagia or dyspepsia, nausea, vomiting; -too low or too high blood pressure, palpitation, -low blood flow, venous or lymphatic drain disorders, edemas, haemorrhoids, veins varicose, syndrome of Raynaud; -hormonal disorder, pineal, pituitary or hypothalamus disorders, libido disorders; -bone, muscle, nerve or vessel pains, cramps, sciatic pain, facial neuralgia; -allergy, inflammation, skin disorders, eczema, acne, lupus; -osteoporosis, osteoarthritis, rheumatisms, fibromyalgia, hernia; -rhinitis, bronchitis, emphysema, asthma, -apnea, mucositis; -nephrite, cystitis, incontinence, -pancreatitis, diabetes; -kidney cysts, thyroid nodules. Taking into account chronobiology [3], reflexotherapy not only get success in diagnosis and treatments but also can be used to evaluate the efficiency of other therapies like lithotherapy [6]. Periodicity [28] is a key component of therapy evolution and evaluation.
