IJPLP addresses the developing area of natural medicines. Most of these could be included under 'physiotherapy', since there is no chemical compound involved in the process. There is an urgent need for the understanding of these natural medicines in terms of modern science. Biochemistry is the base of conventional western school medicine, biophysics that of many natural medicines. IJPLP not only furthers the development of natural (including many ancient) medicines, but also the further development of modern physics.


 Topics covered include

  • Acupuncture
  • Music/prayer therapy
  • Infrared/soft-laser/electric pulse therapy
  • Sauna/foot-bath therapy, massage

More on this journal...

The objectives of IJPLP are to establish an effective channel of communication between medical policy makers, medical insurances institutions, government agencies, academic and research institutions, scientists, medical doctors and medical practitioners etc.

It also aims to promote and coordinate developments in the field of natural medicines and physics. The international dimension is emphasised in order to promote the exchange of different ways of thinking and different methods in medicine, which have been developed in different cultures since early times, because such exchange is not only a big challenge to existing medical systems and existing knowledge of modern science, but also an opportunity for the further development of medical systems and modern science in the time of globalisation.


IJPLP provides a vehicle to help medical doctors, medical practitioners, academics, researchers, medical industry, medical insurance, research foundations and medical policy makers to disseminate information and to learn from each other's work.


IJPLP publishes original papers, review papers, technical reports, case studies, conference reports, instrument reports, technique development, book reviews, ancient literature studies, notes, commentaries, and news. Special Issues devoted to various key topics in the field will occasionally be published.
