About

Biophysics is an interdisciplinary field that bridges the gap between physics and biology, exploring the physical principles that underlie the structure and function of biological systems. This dynamic discipline investigates everything from the mechanics of molecular interactions to the behavior of complex biological networks. Biophysicists uncover the quantitative laws that govern life at the molecular and cellular levels.

Biophysics encompasses a wide range of topics, from understanding the mechanics of muscle contraction to elucidating the properties of biomolecules like proteins and DNA. This knowledge is pivotal for advancements in medical diagnostics, drug design, and our understanding of fundamental biological processes. Biophysics offers insights into how life's building blocks interact and contribute to the intricate web of living organisms.

Fred Vlès – Early Holistic Biophysicist and Pioneer of “Earthing”
by Marco Bischof

The paper reports on the life and works of Fred Vlès (1885-1944) and Paul Reiss (1901-1944), and Charles Laville (1877-1959) who worked in a similar field. Vlès was the founder of the first institute of biophysics in France at the University of Strasbourg, and Reiss was his pupil and associate. They worked in the time of 1910 to 1944 on the acid-alkaline balance and the reduction-oxidation (redox) potentials of the body fluids and tissues and their influence on the proteins and colloids of the “terrain”, along the line...s given by the “milieu interne” (internal environment) or homeostasis concept by Claude Bernard. Vlès and Reiss were also electrobiologists and were some of the first scientists to investigate the physiological effects of electrical grounding where also the work of Charles Laville is relevant. In the conclusion we link this historical narrative to contemporary research.
