What is Integrative Mental Health Medicine?
Mental health integrative medicine uses the relationship between the body and the mind to enhance the effects of psychotherapies, prescription medications, herbal medicine, vitamin/mineral supplementation and other alternative therapies. This holistic approach focuses on the whole person: mind, body, and spirit as well as all aspects of a patient’s environment and lifestyle.
Integrative Mental Health Medicine does not reject conventional prescribing but can be used as adjunctive support or as an alternative to traditional medications if appropriate.**
