Another way to fight illnesses – it is possible: Jean-Christophe Charrie at TEDxLaRochelle

Reviewer: Ariana Bleau Lugo Hello, I am going to talk
about endobiogeny. Endobiogeny, what is that? I am sure not many
people know this word. “Endo”, “Bio”, “Geny”. “Endo” means “inside”. “Bio”, “life”. “Geny”, not the genie in Aladdin’s bottle, “Geny” coming from generating things. I’ll talk about endobiogeny,
the science that studies the organization of internal life. I had a three-year training, and 15 years of practice and was asked to talk for how long? 18 minutes, is that it? No, it’s imposible. I am going to talk
about something else, about something that everyone knows, but has forgotten. Something that may disappear that belongs to humanity,
not subject to any patent, the only source of treatment
for 4 people out of 5 and something promoted by
the World Health Organization. Something recognized in France
by the Academy of Medicine but denied in 2007
by the Social Security. I’m going to talk about
medicinal plants, symbolized here by the small
chamomile from our gardens, which heals our contusions
and softens our skin. Medicinal plants have been used
for more than 7,000 years. They are a therapeutic tool
with various exceptional properties to be used wisely. It’s a therapeutic tool complying with future
requirements of health policies, in terms of cost reduction, access to health care, respect for the individual
and the environment. It’s a therapeutic tool
that develops its full potential when it’s used assisted by
the medical science endobiogeny. See, we get back to it! There live on earth
over 500,000 plant species. Only half of them
have been identified. The World Health Organization
has classified 22,000 plants
traditionally used in health care. Over 2,500 have been
rigorously studied to discover how they work. In my practice,
I use more than 200 of them. You see, there is a huge potential
for research and development. The pharmaceutical industry
has understood this: In the big red Vidal dictionary, 70% of drugs come from medicinal plants. How did we get to the medicine of today? Well, it goes back nearly 150 years. At that time, medical science
was facing a dead end, as it couldn’t treat nor combat
the major epidemics. At that time, two scientific
approaches emerged, personified by two men: Claude Bernard and Louis Pasteur. Claude Bernard as a physician, aimed to understand
how organisms work, considering disease
the result of a dysfunction. Thanks to his work, we know today
how to interpret a blood test. For Louis Pasteur,
a physicist, not a physician, disease was the result
of an atack over the organism by an external element, such as a microbe, a poison,
or a mutated gene. As this approach had visible,
reproducible, simple results– one disease corresponds
to one drug– that’s the path medicine chose. It was necessary to create new drugs, extreme drugs to heal extreme diseases. That is how major epidemics
were eradicated, such as the plague,
tuberculosis or smallpox. That’s how we got into the “anti” era: antihypertensive, anticholesterol drugs,
antidiabetic, antibiotics… Antibiotics “against life”, but only against the life of bacteria,
rest assured. With these extremely powerful tools, created to deal with extreme diseases, we thought we could heal any disease. It’s clear now that we were wrong. But those powerful tools were misused: they were used to gain authority
over the organism and to replace it,
not to heal extreme diseases, but to treat common ones, more for the pharmaceutical industry
benefit than for the patient. As a result, we saw new diseases
resulting from those drugs. We saw an explosion of health care costs. Even worse: Diseases that could healed by those drugs are now out of control. For instance, infectious diseases: some bacteria have become
resistant to antibiotics. Antibiotics can no longer
fight and kill certain bacteria. You have today bacteria
resistent to all antibiotics. You have today patients
whose disease is known but can no longer be treated
and end up dying. How great is that? But tomorrow? This resistance is increasing
at great speed. Tomorrow, when you take your kid
to the doctor and he tells you, “I am sorry, I know what your kid
suffers from, I know the disease, but I have no cure; the bacteria
are resistant to all antibiotics.” What will you do? What will we do? We are stuck again in a dead-end. This medical approach
has reduced the patient’s body to an ill liver, an ill heart,
an ill intestine or an ill brain. This approach has split up the human body. How can we go back to a holistic approach? How can we reconsider the body as a whole? Endobiogeny offers an answer. How can we respect the whole? Medicinal plants provide an answer. This is what I have been doing
for more than 15 years. I am a general practitioner. I wrote a thesis in 1998,
which won a national award. I have worked in a hospital
on a part-time basis for 12 years and spent the other half in my office
as a licensed professional. How did I discover medicinal plants? During my studies,
I had some serious health problems. By chance, I met the two physicians
at the root of endobiogeny. They fascinated me and changed my life. After my studies,
I followed a complementary training. I put it into practice as soon
as I opened my office. The results surprised me. Now I am a teacher myself. I am a general practitioner, not a
phytotherapist, even less a naturopath. I am a general practitioner
who uses primarily medicinal plants every time it is possible
to let the organism heal on its own. I still use those “anti” drugs
that we have talked about, but I keep them
for exceptional situations, when the patient’s life is at stake. I use medicinal plants
according to endobiogeny. Endobiogeny is an approach that
doesn’t focus on statistics. It is a medicine that
focuses on you, you, you… each one of you individually giving you a tailored treatment. Endobiogeny is an approach
that tries to understand how the body’s self-repair and
self-restoration mechanisms work. Your skin, for instance, is 3 weeks old. Not older than that,
so everyone here has baby skin! Every morning when you
wash yourself, or so I hope– you remove dust, dirt and dead cells. Your skin has to
restore itself continually. This is happening right now. Let’s take another example
of self-restoration: When a cat scratches you, your organism knows how to repair itself. no need of doctor, because you are alive. But sometimes, problems appear. The organism has difficulty
restoring and repairing itself, so you have to go to the doctor. The doctor’s role here is
to understand how you work, to see how he can help your body so that it may repair on its own. Endobiogeny is a science. As every other science,
it is based on a theory. Without theory, no science. The underlying theory
relies on two points. To make this self-repair work,
you need an administrator that depends on the endocrine and
the neuro-vegetative system mainly. Those are two major concepts
and I am not here to lecture you. Basically, your organism
is the one that understands how your hormones
organize themselves and interact to coordinate
all this dynamic and how your unconscious
nervous system, that controls your belly, digestion,
breathing and your heart beats, helps your body
so that it may repair itself. When you go to the doctor, you talk to him, he listens to you
and examines you–or so I hope. For an endobiogenist,
those three steps are crucial, they enable him to find signs
seemingly tiny and insignificant, but, related to one another,
build your life story until today. He can understand which
dysfunctions led to your disease. If necessary, the doctor
may take a blood sample. This blood test summarizes
the results of all parameters and compares them to standards. If they comply with standards,
everything is fine. Otherwise, there is a problem. If you don’t have enough
red blood cells, you are anemic. This result may be enough for some. But according to
the theory of endobiogeny, these results are not here by chance. The only chance is the moment
the nurse chose to prick your arm. It’s a series of parameters
measured at the same time. A sort of picture of your
body’s inside working. Endobiogeny enables to link those
figures to establish algorithms and to measure them
in the most precise way in order to discover how you work. This information provides
valuable assistance to the doctor. In order to support the organism,
you have to help in the right place. The doctor uses a tool
that respects your organism, i.e. medicinal plants. But he won’t use it like your
grandmother or great-grandmother. 150 years have gone by
and science has made giant steps. He will use them according
to modern science, that have revealed
that plants can regulate the endocrine and
neuro-vegetative systems. You have two studies, one focused
on the organism’s functions, according to which
the treatment should impact the endocrine and
neuro-vegetative systems, and a second study
not related to the first one. It is focused on plants
and tries to understand them to determine their ability to regulate the endocrine
and neuro-vegetative systems which join forces and
are made to work in symbiosis. One only has to learn to do it. All is nice, but I feel that
you need a concrete example. So I am going to talk about Alice. Alice is 35 when
she first comes to see me. Alice suffers of chronic
infection of the lungs, because nature did not give her cilia that normally sweep dirt out of lungs. Alice has been taking antibiotics
every two weeks for several years. Alice is exhausted. According to her pneumologist,
her lungs are in such bad shape that she’ll have to undergo
a transplant within 2 years. I have been helping Alice for 7 years now. Alice has resumed a normal life. She swims and I think that
she’s better at it than most of you. Alice has resumed sport and
regained control of her life. She takes antibiotics only
1 week per year, like most of us. How did we manage to do that? We gave up on trying to eliminate
the responsible germ, since it was not working. With Alice and the help of endobiogeny, I tried to understand how, despite her structural failure
and the absence of cilia, we could help Alice live in harmony with the bacterial environment. And we found a way! She still has her lungs. If you want to gain access
to this medicine, if you think you need to be
respected as an individual, if you think that it is urgent for the future of your children,
your grandchildren, or yourself to introduce this kind of health care, then you need doctors trained and recognized
as such by society, i.e. by you, doctors who went to university. Through my personal and
professional engagements, through my presence here today, I have done my part. Doctors practicing the same
medicine as myself are doing their part all over the world. In France, patients got together and organized the doctors’
and pharmacists’ training waiting for the university to take over. These patients are doing their part. Every one of us can do their part. By talking about it, by sharing
the URL of the conference online. All these parts may act as
an engine to make things change, to make mentalities change, so that politicians
let us choose our medicine. It may seem utopian, but it is possible. As a proof, I would mention
that in 2009 in Mexico, under popular pressure, the Parliamentary Assembly
adopted a law forcing free public health services to give access to herbal medicine
to people who ask for it. I quit my job at the hospital to take part in the training of
public health doctors from Mexico. Tomorrow’s challenge is finding
out how to deal with diseases, knowing that we are
at the end of Pasteur’s route. There is another way,
I just told you about, but it’s not in the interest of
the pharmaceutical industry that owns the financial power
to lead research. We are no academics, we don’t depend on its financial power, only on our patients’ interest. This route will only evolve if people like you ask for it. Thank you. (Applause)

  1. Thank you for sharing this! Jean-Christophe thank you for sharing this with the world! Let's make it vibrates to the furthest parts of the world!    

  2. Saludos  desde  México , siguiendo el conocimiento de la Endobiogenia  practicando la  medicina  , dándole  prioridad  a la  planta medicinal , . Gracias   los extrañamos !!!

  3. Très explicite,Bravo à toi Jean Christhophe,et continu pour nous tous, excellent discourt merci bises

  4. Mais qu'il est nerveux ce médecin. Stressé on dirait bien, souffle court, débit verbal rapide. Bon la phytothérapie médicinale, fantastique. Mais il ne dit rien de nouveau. It is very amusing to notice the obvious metabolic syndrome that seems to be burgeoning in the lecturer as indicated by his noticeable abdominal fat visible under his tight shirt. Regardless of his understanding of the various metabolic pathways, he seems to have no understanding at all of the actual nutritional foundations (mainly excess carbohydrates and dysbiosis) which are the grounds upon which the metabolic syndrome will rise in the body. He should really become acquainted in particular with the works of Dr. Alassio Fasano, Dr. Richard Feinam, Dr Adrienne Scheck and Dr Dominic D'Agostino (among others). Dear Dr Charrie, je vous invite à me contacter… il me fera plaisir de discuter avec vous. Vous n'avez que deux études sur lesquelles baser votre approche thérapeutique… c'est un peu pauvre n'est-ce pas? Bon 18 minutes, pour nous dire que vous utilisez les plantes pour soigner. Très bien. Rien de nouveau dans le monde médical international de la médecine fonctionnelle…
