After a first experience in Africa in health projects with the Belgian Technical Cooperation and with the “Brothers of Men” association, he arrives to Peru in 1980 to lead the Lampa Hospital (Puno) as head of mission of "Doctors without Borders". This experience will awake his interest in Peruvian traditional medicine systems and practices, which efficacy is verified by him clinically every day. This orientation is later consolidated (1984-1985) when he assumes other medical missions for NGOs in countries of Asia and Africa. He decides to study these ancestral resources in primal health since 1986, as an associated researcher of the French Institute of Andean Studies (IFEA). Then he went through many years of traditional medical learning in different regions of the Peruvian Amazon. In 1992, he founded the TAKIWASI Center where intercultural medicine is practiced, nurtured by native traditions and modern knowledge. Between 1996 and 2001 he served at the National Institute of Traditional Medicine of Peru as Director of the San Martin region. Because of his research he has been entitled as an honorary member of the Association of Psychologists of Peru, and as an Extraordinary Professor at the Southern Scientific University (Lima).
