What is Integrative Psychiatry

Integrative Psychiatry, a branch of Integrative Medicine, take a whole-person approach to mental health.

"Holistic Psychiatry values each individual as a unified whole, consisting of mental, emotional, physicial, spiritual, social, and environmental forces that simultaneously affect health and well-being. A holistic psychiatrist is trained in the use of conventional medicine as well as nutritional, functional, orthomolecular, mind-body, and energy medicine. This comprehenisve approach facilitates the healing process of individuals at all levels of being with the ultimate goal of restoring optimal mental and physical state, as naturally, efficiently, and effectively as possible." - Dr. Alice Lee
