The Theory of Endobiogeny, Volume 1: Global Systems Thinking and Biological Modeling for Clinical Medicine focuses on the theory, mathematical modeling and defense of medicinal plants within the greater therapeutic compendium. It offers an in-depth assessment into common disorders, an endobiogenic analysis, guidance on using biological modeling tools, and suggestions for treatment using standard of care treatments that also stress diet, lifestyle and medicinal plants. This approach is an evolution in thinking from reductionism to holism, offering advice for a symptomatic treatment used in conjunction with a new way of thinking about diseases and disease management.
