In addition to holistic & happiness principles, The Happiness Medicine Team practices the basic principles of natural medicine, or what public agents call Traditional Naturopathy. In essence, traditional naturopathy and “natural medicine” are the same. Naturopathic Medicine is a little different in that it has incorporated part of the allopathic model in its modus operandi.
Natural medicine or traditional naturopathy is partially based on Hippocrates’ legacy. (7) These naturopathic principles include the following principles:
First Do no Harm (primum non nocere).
Second principle, Follow Nature’s example or the Healing Power of Nature (vis medicatrix naturae).
Third principle: Search and Address the Root Causes (tolle causam).
Fourth princIple, Doctor as Teacher (docere), notably teaching the patient to be his-her own Healer from the holistic angle.
Fifth principle, consider the patient as an individual and Whole Person (tolle totum) with a unique genome and bioterrain.
Sixth principle, Nuture hopeful and positive Energy as well as Joie de vivre as the best general long term reversal and prevention strategy. Nocebo and chronic stress are killers, especially for economically vulnerable humans. (Source). The CDC and many published studies have concluded that chronic stress is a major factor in all serious diseases. (8) The “Joie de Vivre” energy is thus crucial.
Seventh principe, practice a sliding scale in terms of fees so that those who need natural medicine the most are not excluded while being proactive in terms of Medicine’s standards of care which turn out to be deleterious.
Trained in mainstream French law, conventional allopathic medicine, (9) Chinese acupuncture medicine, clinical nutrition and European-French naturopathy, Professor Joubert uses both legal and health tools to optimize wellbeing (10) thanks to which he can help those who suffer from diseases to better activate their self-repair and, among others, homeostasis mechanisms with scientific-based holistic lifestyle protocols and common sense.

Reference and Precision Notes
(7). Over 2500 years ago when the type of civilization was based more on spiritual values (versus mercantile and military ones, according to historian Toynbee), Dr Hippocrates improved many aspects of Medicine. His biggest legacy was to remove most of medicine from the superstition-based dogma ideology in which it was stuck and re-orient it toward better Science and Nature. Based on empirical observation and experimentation, Hippocrates’ approach to medicine was truly holistic in that he examined root problems, including “psycho-somatic” aspects of diseases, those deriving from an imbalance of emotions and traumas. His third legacy was to nurture a natural approach in allowing the body to activate it’s own healing process via the body’s homeostatic self repair mechanisms, which is an aspect of genuine medicine that has been lost by most of today’s conventional allopathic doctors or chemists who seem to think that expensive surgeries, drugs and high-tech toys (instruments) can be superior to 65 million years of biological evolution. The bottom line is that the medical philosophy that comes from the “Father” of Western Medicine is at the heart of naturopathy. Even the Bible’s medicine has shown the example in helping patient to remove blockages to the healing forces within via holistic techniques like fasting, meditation, prayer, chanting, quality food, herbs, wine, exercises, hydrotherapy, balneotherapy, heliotherapy, aromatherapy, fever therapy and the like, all of these holistic techniques are at the core of holistic and natural medicine (naturopathy).
(8). “… chronic stress has a significant effect on the immune system that ultimately manifest an illness. It raises catecholamine and suppressor T cells levels, which suppress the immune system. This suppression, in turn raises the risk of viral infection. Stress also leads to the release of histamine, which can trigger severe broncho-constriction in asthmatics. Stress increases the risk for diabetes mellitus, especially in overweight individuals, since psychological stress alters insulin needs. Stress also alters the acid concentration in the stomach, which can lead to peptic ulcers, stress ulcers or ulcerative colitis. Chronic stress can also lead to plaque buildup in the arteries (atherosclerosis), especially if combined with a high-fat diet and sedentary living. The correlation between stressful life events and psychiatric illness is stronger than the correlation with medical or physical illness. The relationship of stress with psychiatric illness is strongest in neuroses, which is followed by depression and schizophrenia. There is no scientific evidence of a direct cause-and-effect relationship between the immune system changes and the development of cancer. However, recent studies found a link between stress, tumour development and suppression of natural killer (NK) cells, which is actively involved in preventing metastasis and destroying small metastases”.

(9). Although Joubert has been trained in Western allopathic medicine in a French mainstream School of Medicine, he has willingly refused to be licensed in this type of medicine in which he has little if any faith (except for rare necessities, notably in emergency medicine). Furthermore, as a licensed M.D., he would have been obliged to prescribe toxic synthetic patented drugs and recommend dubious standards of care which Christian considers to be harmful (risks outweighing benefits) and often based on fraudulent, outdated and mercantile practices. These modern day treatments can not be in the “superior” interest of the patient, even in France, the allopathic mainstream medical system is intoxicated with vaccination obsessions and prescription synthetic drugs (antidepressants, anti-psychotics, constipation drugs, antibiotics, chemo and the like). Hence, Joubert’s training in acupuncture (Chinese Medicine), nutrition and naturopathy (which included aromatherapy, herbology, massage, exercises, breathing, meditation, sleep hygiene and many other holistic rejuvenation techniques). His clinical practice is thus limited to traditional Hippocrates based naturopathy consultation. Likewise with the law. Although Chris was trained to be a French lawyer as well as an international law teacher, he has chosen to be a human rights teaching jurist, specializing in international human rights law and international cooperation among Nations. However, he did litigate multiple cases in multiple fields of domestic law, including but not limited to claims (“causes of action” in legal jargon) in medical malpractice (focusing on cancer cases), products liability, tobacco racketeering, legal malpractice, constitutional law, international human rights and other cases. Today, he prefers to coach and educate workshopees and clients to be their own healer and litigator. He therefore does not represent clients in courts of law, not does he allopathetically treat or diagnose patients.
(10). Thanks to his legal background, Professor Joubert is able to examine medical claims and health challenges with the eyes of a detective, in terms of finding root causes and durable solutions.
(11). When Joubert coaches clients, he does not use Conventional Medicine’s monopolies: prescription drugs, surgeries, radiation and other hi-tech medical procedures, most of which suppress symptoms without addressing the root causes. Naturopathic, Holistic & Happiness Medicine are medical or health boosting approaches that help to express the good genes and gently place in dormancy the bad genes in a much safer, effective and cost-friendly way than conventional medicine’s synthetic patented drugs and its other invasive methods. Most allopathic medical doctors are not to be blamed as they need their medical license to pay off huge student debts and bills. It is those individuals who control the State apparatus who have willingingly chosen to enforce, including via military and coercitive means, corporate medical standards, standards which have been overwhelmingly proven to constitute either the first or the third cause of premature death and collective suffering.
