Integrative psychiatry is a service that involves alternative and complementary psychiatric treatments. Integrative psychiatry is a great option for those who are looking for alternative recommendations to improve your child’s mental health.
What Is Integrative Psychiatry?
Integrative psychiatry is a holistic approach to mental health treatment – it involves modifying the diet, exercise, supplement regimen, and even parenting techniques to treat neurodiverse individuals. This is a great option for treating psychiatric conditions in children, as some parents may be hesitant to start their children on traditional prescription medication, especially if their symptoms are moderate to mild. In addition, supplements do not have as significant side effects as prescription medication, which makes them more tolerable for children.
Integrative Psychiatry Services At New York Child Psychiatry
At New York Child Psychiatry, we primarily use supplements and work with parents on family dynamics and parenting when treating patients using integrative psychiatry. We partner with Standard Process Nutritional Supplements and Nordic Naturals, which offer the highest quality supplements for all your nutritional and psychiatric needs. Through this approach, we identify which nutrients your child is not getting enough of that may impact their mood or behavior and add that to their supplement regimen. We then observe how they respond to that supplement, how they feel, and if there are other supplements they need. By closely monitoring your child’s response to the supplements, we can create a drug-free treatment plan that treats their symptoms in the most effective way possible.
