Endobiogeny is a theory that was conceived and developed in France by Christian Duraffourd, MD, and, with the help of Jean-Claude Lapraz, MD, teaching methods were produced that promoted the expansion of this theory.
Christian Duraffourd MD and Jean-Claude Lapraz MD have been medical practitioners for over 30 years, including the eight years they served as oncobiologists in the Department of General Surgery and Oncology of a leading Paris hospital.
Borne out of a daily practice involving thousands of patients and a large spectrum of pathologies (including degenerative pathologies like cancer), the endobiogenic approach has yielded significant results from the use of medicinal plants and essential oils. In 1980 the two doctors founded the French Society for Phytotherapy and (Medical) Aromatherapy cheap jerseys to promote this approach to medical doctors. Clinical training continues in Universities around the world in America, Lithuania, France, Tunisia, Mexico and others.
This advanced use of plant extracts where the choices are based on correction of the underlying “terrain” is very different from trying to alleviate symptoms. Orthodox drugs are sometimes necessary for this purpose. The Endobiogenic model as with the Naturopathic one allows and expects the patient to take some responsibility for their health.
