Integrated Medicine: A Good Thing

I strongly believe that all medical providers should strive to communicate with each other to provide integrated healthcare for all of their patients. This includes mental health professionals.

I am committed to working with your doctors and specialists should you grant me permission to do so. Medicine is a delicate balance of mind and body working together -- not different body parts acting on their own. Diseases and other physical health concerns have an impact on your mental health, and can sometimes be the cause of mental health issues -- the way depression often accompanies cancer or heart disease. And vice versa -- many cases of chronic pain are caused by long term stress and emotional trauma.

At times I may requests laboratory tests from your doctor in order to see if any pertinent shows up in medical test results. I would only do so with your full consent.

I cannot provide psychiatric medications since I am not a licensed prescriber, and have not found psychiatric medications, including antidepressants and antipsychotics, to be effective, long-lasting treatment for mental illness and severe emotional problems.

If you are interested in living without psychiatric medications, I will be happy to work with your doctor or health care provider to taper off your medications. Please do not ever discontinue taking any psychiatric medication without medical supervision — it may cause withdrawal symptoms and severe side effects.

...the human spirit is more powerful than any drug — and that is what needs to be nourished: with work, play, friendship, family. These are the things that matter. This is what we’d forgotten — the simplest things.
— from the movie "Awakenings" (1990)
