Doctor patient relationships

Doctor patient relationships are very important and are seen to have changed a great deal over the years. Many people long to get back to the traditional idea of the family doctor, ed where he knew all about their home-life as he treated the whole family and thus had almost a personal involvement with his patients. However, doctors are now seen as impersonal, just prescribing drugs rather than finding out if there may be a deeper cause to the problem. This is one of the reasons that people are turning to alternative medicine where homeopathic doctors are looking further into the mind and lives of patients by exploring doctor patient relationships, rather than just prescribing drugs.


Psychotherapy is a treatment for mental conditions through talking to the patient and trying to uncover the problems in the mind. This is an alternative to simply giving the patient drugs; it attempts to get deeper into the problem. Body psychotherapy is an extension of psychotherapy and takes into account the complexity of interactions between the body and the mind.

Therapies such as chiropractic, craniosacral, auditory integration, psychotherapy, and biofeedback are fine to pursue along with homeopathy. Once the correct homeopathic medicine has been given, many patients find that they no longer need to follow strict allergy rotation diets, receive desensitization injections, take mega doses of numerous vitamins and minerals, and use other therapies aimed at treating individual symptoms.

Although psychotherapy is helpful it is very understandable that individuals want to try anything that has the possibility of helping them, but using too many therapies, conventional or alternative, at the same time can make it very difficult to discern what effect each specific therapy is having.

However the role of psychotherapy in determining the correct homeopathic treatment is very useful. When a person receives the correct homeopathic medicine, he knows it. She feels an improvement in energy, physical ailments, concentration, attitude, and creativity. Once he feels so much better, she generally no longer needs lots of other therapies.

Neuro linguistic programming/NLP

Neuro-Linguistic programming, otherwise known as NLP, studies the way humans view the world in an attempt to find the thoughts and behaviours that limit us. When these limitations are recognised it is possible to get rid of them and allow humans to live without these restrictions.
