A medical regime is highly protected in all corners even to the detriment of money donors. Another is to describe, strike with ostracism and constraint to clandestinity. Exogenous medicine and endogenous medicine constitute the ossature of this collective book. Through a pluri-disciplinary contextualized methodology, local perspectives have been received to expose the placing a therapy in quarantine “inside” to the benefit of a therapy “outside”. Most of health agents supporting the regime of care to another and “complotting” against the supply of “traditherapy” care. Decolonize our health care, focusing on raising “our” medicine; argue for it to come back, this back thread sustains the pleading in favor of Cameroon local medicines. In this African in miniature country just as in the entire continent, about 80% of patients first of all solicit local therapies before any other medical reference. The statistics of the world health organization (WHO) demonstrate in a passive regard the intervention of health system. Though it is unknown, ignored, sold, boycotted, biopirated, the local medicinal heritage which is the essential raw material to local therapeutics sustains the unfolding pluralism and the therapeutic practice which it entertains. This common work equally questions the effectiveness of the “officers” health regime which is confined in the hospital frames and has even become inhospitable that the “traditherapy” is now trying to lift up the quantitative challenge.
