Integrative psychiatry takes a holistic approach to your mental health, going beyond treating symptoms to helping you achieve optimal mental and physical wellness.
Practitioners of integrative psychiatry, like Dr. Larson at SourceMD: Integrated Wellness Solutions, honor the fact that your body, mind, and environment all contribute to mental health problems.
Dr. Larson doesn’t simply prescribe a medication without first understanding all the components that cause your symptoms. Then he works with you to create an individualized treatment plan that draws from conventional medicine and complementary therapies.
Before your treatment plan from SourceMD is developed, you may undergo testing that you may not expect because integrative psychiatrists believe in the connection between your physical and mental health.
For example, systemic inflammation, nutritional deficiencies, gut bacteria, and genetic tendencies can all influence the health of your brain.
Depending on the underlying causes and the severity of your symptoms, Dr. Larson may start your therapy with alternative options or prescribe medication together with complementary treatments. The following are a few examples of the treatments your therapy may include.
Dr. Larson also specializes in positive psychology, which builds upon your strengths to cultivate your resilience and help you move toward a fulfilling and purposeful life.
Dr. Larson has extensive experience helping patients with the challenges of everyday life, including:
You can also receive support for mood disorders and complex psychotic disorders. However, you don’t need to wait until you face a struggle to get help from integrative psychology.
Preventive medicine isn’t just for your physical health; applying it to your mental health is also beneficial.
With a thorough evaluation, Dr. Larsen can help you develop a lifestyle plan that restores and maintains your brain’s health, makes mental health problems less likely to develop, and gives you the energy to deal with everyday challenges.
