Holistic Smart Doctor?

I am a bit fed up with doctors that are unable to connect dots and lack basic understanding of how body systems interact. In general, I find them either ignorant, too specialized or too inclined to deal with symptoms rather than concentrating on causal cures.

Can anyone recommend me a holistic smart doctor -or sort of- in the Canton of Zurich?

I've just learnt to accept that doctors aren't as god-like as I used to think they were. I don't blame them, it can't be easy.

Re: Holistic Smart Doctor?

I agree, its not easy. What I believe though is that, like in every profession, there are people that love their job and are passionate about it, they keep up to date because they like their stuff so much and don't stop investigating and learning more about it. Normally, those are the stars of the business/industry.
Medicine is no different, there are doctors who just do their job and doctors who excel at it. I'm trying to find one of those.

If you'd like, theres a very good one that I'd recommend, in Geneva, and it might be worth a trip to check him out http://www.loton.ch/

Re: Holistic Smart Doctor?

Without getting into a rant, I agree with all that you wrote. Most doctors/dentists are obviously in their fields of practice for two reasons: prestige and income. It's rare to find folks who are actually tuned in to human beings, practice some basic common sense, and who care about what they do. This is true of most professions, I suppose, but with what could be a Healing Art, it's sort of shocking, as this involves human life.

I also agree that there are good people out there, perhaps commonly outside of the 'normal' system: i.e. holistic doctors, naturopaths, etc. (I saw one, though, who was sort of nutso.)

The guy I'm seeing now is at the Seegarten Klinik in Kilchberg, ZH. He's super down to earth, smart, experienced, speaks English, and figured out the root of my health problems in one appointment (all related to dentistry). Don't know if he'd be considered 'Holistic' - I believe 'Integrative Medicine' is a more accurate description. His name is Dr. Van Limburg Stirum.

Website is here: http://www.seegartenklinik.ch/

If you find a great Holistic doctor, please send the info along.

Best!
