The practice of psychiatric medicine is experiencing a growing consumer demand for Complementary Alternative Medicine (CAM) therapies, integrated with traditional medical care. The new term, of course, is Integrative Medicine. Dr. Miner has achieved positive results in many patients through the integration of nutritional and complementary treatments, along with traditional psychiatric medications as needed. These treatments may include the practice of Essential Oils/Aromatherapy. Such Integrative Care can often improve patient outcomes while lowering the risks, and sometimes the costs, of treatment.
