Biography[edit | edit source]
Dubounet created the EPFX system in the late 1980s which she supposedly claimed could diagnose and eliminate diseases including AIDS and cancer. However it is important to note that in the disclaimer of the EPFX clearly states that "The bioenergetics evaluation with the EPFX is not a method of diagnosing nor are the suggested remedies designed to replace any of the medications or treatments currently being provided by a physician."  Some people chose to use the EPFX system instead of seeking or continuing medical care and some died as a result. The FDA asked in 1992 that Dubounet stop claiming that the EPFX could diagnose or cure diseases, but she did not and in 1996 was indicted on nine counts of felony fraud, none of which were in relation to the EPFX. Dubounet has since left the United States. Dubounet is also involved in homeopathic medicine, receiving a patent for her process in 1997. Despite the felony charges and the FDA charges against the EPFX, more than 10,000 of the devices sold in the United States alone.
