This article summarizes the scientific knowledge in the fields of quantum physics and of medical science about the origin and the nature of universe and of life. The recent discoveries in the field of biopsychic, genetic, epigenetic, neuroscience and psychosomatic describe universe and life as highly coherent systems where in-formation is a key factor and has a fundamental role in their origin. In this vision living systems are cognitive networks in a dynamic relationship with everything around them. Health in this context has to be considered a dynamic balance in a subject in which the information moves on in a correct way. On the contrary diseases have to be identified as pathologies of information, which can be classified in a new way, considering two different codes -semiotic and symbolic- of meaning.
