The goal is to help patients regain mental wellness through the use of individualized metabolic testing, nutritional therapies, dietary interventions, along with traditional medical treatments, including medications and psychotherapy.

This international conference will explore the field of Integrative Medicine in the treatment of mental health, autism, and related disorders. The current trial-and-error, poly-pharmacy approach to the treatment of psychiatric disorders may not work for everyone. Research studies have revealed that many disorders such as depression, bipolar disorder, anxiety, OCD, eating disorders, and autism spectrum disorders often have dietary and biological causes which contribute to symptoms. Patients have better outcomes when these causes are successfully addressed and treated through a combination of specialized testing and nutritional therapies, even in combination with traditional approaches.
Integrative Medicine for Mental Health (IMMH) supports a whole body approach to mental health disorders, utilizing multiple fields of medicine and nutritional sciences. We educate practitioners about how to help their patients regain mental wellness through the use of individualized metabolic testing, nutritional therapies, and dietary interventions. These methods can be used in conjunction with traditional medical approaches like psychotherapy. Relevant laboratory analysis is used to evaluate and treat underlying biomedical issues which may include nutritional deficiencies, food allergies, infections, toxicities, and genetic disorders. By focusing on an individual's unique genetic, biochemical, and nutritional status, customized treatment plans can be implemented to provide better wellness outcomes.
The mission of IMMH is to advance the knowledge of mental health practitioners about integrative medicine and improve the treatment of mental health disorders utilizing a whole body approach. IMMH is committed to educating mental health professionals in the use of research-based therapies through conferences, webinars, newsletters, and other web-based resources to provide an ever-growing resource of integrative mental health practitioners for those seeking help in their geographic areas.
