The research published here, conducted over 15 years by Inge Just-Nastansky, reveals—through 545 color illustrations—aspects of nature that otherwise remain hidden to us.

Water drops—tiny transparent vessels—dry and leave remarkable structures imprinted with its “experiences.” Salt, minerals, gemstones, and plant organs (roots, stems, fruits, and seeds) were submerged in water for weeks or months. Bodily fluids (tears, saliva, cerebrospinal fluid, blood, and serum) were also subjects of research. We perceive permanent salt-like structures in the area of the nerve–sense system, whereas in images of blood we see ever-changing transformations under varying conditions.

At regular intervals, water samples were retrieved and dripped onto microscope slides. After drying, distinctive and reproducible images of astounding harmony and beauty appeared. In the seemingly inexhaustible variety of forms, we encounter the language of images of the phenomena, expressing in their lawfulness previously hidden aspects of nature’s reality. Understanding this creative world of life behind the world of appearance arises through our own living feeling and understanding of what we see in the images. This “silent language of life” is thus inaccessible to a logical, abstract approach.

The necessary condition for everything that comes into existence is water—mediator between idea and substance. All life processes originate in water.

“The work of Inge Just-Nastansky joins the ranks of the so-called ‘image-creating methods’ that have emerged in anthroposophical natural science. One thinks of the pioneer Lili Kolisko, who studied the coming to rest of liquids in rising images. For example, at full moon and at new moon radically different rising patterns of the silver salt solution are formed. Inge Just-Nastansky also shows the polarity of the droplet image at full moon and new moon. Macroscopy brings balance to microscopy.” — Armin Husemann, MD

Conclusion and Acknowledgments

Inge Just-Nastansky, MD

Inge Just-Nastansky, MD, is a general practitioner based in Stuttgart. Born in Cologne in 1942, she embarked on her medical journey by obtaining her degree in medicine from Hamburg. Following her graduation, she dedicated three years to research at the UKE/Hamburg, followed by six years serving as an assistant doctor in pediatric and adult surgery.

In 1981, she assumed the responsibilities of a large rural practice in the northern Black Forest, where she practiced for eight years. In 1989, her interests shifted towards eurythmy studies in Stuttgart, culminating in the attainment of her diploma in 1993. Subsequently, she pursued a year-long eurythmy therapy training program in Stuttgart.

After a two-year stint as a school doctor, she returned to Stuttgart Bad-Cannstatt to establish her own practice, where she diligently served patients for seventeen years until 2014. Since 2001, she has been actively engaged in water drop research, alongside her lecturing endeavors.
