Integrative Medicine For Mental Health 5th Annual Conference 2014 (IMMH 2014)
Grand Hyatt San Antonio *San Antonio , USA Visit the Venue to read more
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.
A comprehensive overview of biological testing, designed to detect underlying health issues that contribute to imbalanced brain chemistry and behavioral abnormalities will be presented. Practical clinical applications of nutritional therapies for the treatment of mental illness and autism will be presented in detail during this conference. Pharmacological treatments and interactions will also be addressed. Numerous case studies will be presented to demonstrate how individuals respond to integrative treatments. Overall, the main focus of this conference is to give practitioners a whole body approach to successfully diagnose underlying issues contributing to the manifestations of neurological, social, and behavioral disorders. In addition, the integrative treatments for these disorders will be presented in detail.

We encourage all of our attendees to book directly through the Grand Hyatt. It has been brought to our attention that there are several companies (Convention Housing Services, Convention Hotel Management, Global Hospitality, and others) contacting exhibitors and/or attendees that they can secure hotel rooms at lower rates than available through our room block. These companies are not authorized to represent IMMH, nor do they have access to officially contracted hotel room blocks or rates at any of the convention hotels.
Securing rooms with any other company other than the Grand Hyatt is at your own risk. IMMH will not be held liable for any issues resulting from booking rooms outside of the IMMH designated block.
