The starting point of this Documentary dates back many years ago, when Pr. Joubert, the documentary-maker, was working as a journalist at the Sud Ouest newspaper (Bordeaux’s major paper). During this time, a little before he was to go Medical School in Paris, he was contacted by the Editor in Chief of the Boston Globe who wrote to him asking to investigate the Antoine Prioré electro-magnetic cancer machine which had shown unexplained cancer remissions in many animals.
Having befriended Prioré at his home and fully covered Prioré’s cancer discovery story, (1), thereafter, Joubert went to mainstream allopathic Medicine School in Paris, after which he got trained in clinical nutrition at the Cnam, naturopathy in South France and three years of Chinese Medicine at the French “Ecole Française d’Acupuncture”. (2). Acupuncture being based on micro-current energy (electro-medicine) further sparked Christian’s interest for cancer. (3) After Joubert’s parents moved from France to a cloudy area in the United States, (4) both contracted cancer.
Indoctrinated to first exhaust conventional oncology options before considering alternative and innovative holistic protocols, they both died from allopathic cancer treatments within a few weeks of the original diagnosis. Legal action ensued. Among other proceedings, a nine days jury trial followed. Christian’s legal efforts to contribute in changing the cancer standards of care is one of the HOM documentary’s highlights. (5)
Personal Story with regard to Joubert’s parents & Cancer Praxis
Having witnessed conventional oncology’s deeply flawed and lethal approachs, Kristi Joubert tried to convince both his parents to reverse their advanced cancers with holistic, and secondarily integrative oncology first, given conventional oncology’s toxic and deadly effects. Both his parents got convinced by the conventional oncologists to first try the State recognized standards of care, if only because they were financed by the system. This included radiotherapy, a plethora of drugs and other questionable medical procedures. Both proximately died from said treatments less than ten weeks after the diagnoses, despite their son’s efforts to educate his parents’ medical doctors. In both cases, Joubert filed legal actions, including medical malpractice and product liability suits. Multiple years were spent on personal litigation and jury trial work, including with the US supreme court.
While Joubert was able to argue before the jury and the judge the clinical superiority of holistic oncology over conventional oncology (on over a dozen grounds), while he won a few motions, the ultimate verdict was that most of the conventional legal system was as incompetent and corrupt as most of the conventional medical system.
The medical mistakes were proven with an overwhelming preponderance of the evidence, but Joubert’s cases did not prosper. One of the causes of action was tobacco racketeering (as Joubert’s father had been an ex smoker), this also was proven beyond any reasonable doubt, but not even the US Supreme Court wanted to review his writ of certiorari. When litigators like Joubert do not have the millions of dollars, nor the support of a mainstream law firm, the system is designed to weed out med-mal cases, even if they have merit. A book was written about this tragedy, but it has not been published.
CAN HOLISTIC ONCOLOGY PREVAIL OVER MOST OF TODAY’S CANCER STANDARDS OF CARE ?
Since his years in Medical School, Christian has met thousands of alternative and-or innovative doctors and patients, gone to hundreds of functional, integrative and holistic medicine symposia, he has visited dozens of cancer clinics, talked to many cancer patients, looked at their lab results, examined medical records, analyzed hundreds of studies and books as well as helped many patients to get better educated so that they could take responsibility for their own healing journey. The conclusion is inescapable. Cancer is being successfully reversed holistically without the use of violent therapies that tend to weaken the patient’s vitality and make the outcome worse.
THE SIGNIFICANCE OF PUBLIC AWARENESS AND LITIGATION
After having been a professor of public law in both France and the United States for over ten years (ie, a skill that helps to ascertain the materiality of medical claims) as well as an organic farmer and naturopath, today, Christian is all the more motivated by the ripened and substantiated belief that the missing element in the public health arena is less hard evidence that much of holistic, integrative & innovative medicine can reverse most chronic diseases in general and cancer in particular than the public awareness that this is so. Hence the “raison d’être” of this Documentary.
The film-maker also feels that with the right combination of education, litigation and legislation, over 90 percent of the projected “new” chronic diseases and cancer diagnoses, what is called “incidence”, can be prevented within two to four years, while those who have an ongoing cancer can reverse it equally by over 90 percent. He has argued these two evidenced-based claims before Courts, in the European Parliament process in 2003 and during Washington State’s last two Gubernatorial contests.
Today, almost everyone knows someone close who has been hit with a cancer diagnosis. This cancer epidemic keeps on getting worse. During Nixon’s “War against Cancer” time, one in ten Americans got a cancer diagnosis. Thirty years ago, one in four Americans. Today, the figure is close to one in two. And tomorrow, the incidence will be worse.
After having exhausted court procedures from 2001 to 2012 to try to get Courts of Law to recognize the need to change standards of care, including at the U.S. Supreme Court via a writ of certiorari, in 2012, Christian started to interview innovative oncologists for a documentary that could address the highest court of the land, the Court of public opinion. It is in this perspective that the HOM documentary’s “Hope” message and it’s accompanying book can be useful.
