Résumé

Le fruit du jujubier, le jujube, est d’utilisation ancienne dans la zone où l’arbre pousse naturellement et ou il est cultivé d’Afrique du Nord au Japon. Souvent le jujube est signalé dans le traitement de l’état nerveux ou encore dans l’asthme, une manifestation psychosomatique bien connue. L’auteur a essayé de vérifier l’effet psychotrope de la teinture de Zizyphus jujuba chez 15 patients qui n’ont pas de désordre psychique profond mais témoigne d’une certaine insatisfaction. L’étude sur cinq hommes et dix femmes ne prenant pas de psychotrope chimique montre qu’il existe effectivement une sédation et une amélioration de type adaptatif chez les patients traités.

Abstract

The fruit of the jujube has been used for a very long time in the area where it grows naturally and where it is cultivated, from northern Africa to Japan. The jujube extract is often mentioned, for example, in the treatment of nervous conditions or in a psychosomatic disease like asthma. The author has tried to show the effect of the jujube mother tincture in 15 adults, who were suffering from a general malaise. The trial on five men and ten women shows that the drug does have a sedative and adaptive effect.
