William P. Hayes, M.D., F.A.A.C.A.P .
As a graduate of the Institute for Integrative Nutrition and a member of the Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine I have become familiar with the significant impact of alternative medicine interventions on improving our health. Dr. Andrew Weil has clearly stated that traditional medicine has failed to embrace the attempt to maximize our body’s natural healing response and help it to return our body to balance by the natural process of homeostasis.
Optimizing nutrition, stress management, exercise and developing nurturing relationships with friends, family, work and a sense of spirituality works synergistically to mobilize our body's natural healing response. I am comfortable working with individuals to make use of multiple strategies to treat their underlying psychiatric disorders. If traditional psychiatric medications are needed I am also happy to help identify the most effect intervention for them while minimizing potential side effects.
For more information on Alternative and Complemetry Medicine I encourage you to visit the
National Center for Complementary and Alternative Medicine (NCCAM) and
ClinicalTrials.gov to asobtain information on alternative and complementary medical interventions.
The National Center for Complementary and Alternative Medicine (NCCAM) is the Federal Government's lead agency for scientific research on complementary and alternative medicine (CAM). They are 1 of the 27 institutes and centers that make up the National Institutes of Health (NIH) within the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services. NCCAM sponsors and conducts research using scientific methods and advanced technologies to study CAM. CAM is a group of diverse medical and health care systems, practices, and products that are not presently considered to be part of conventional medicine.
Their mission is to:
Explore complementary and alternative healing practices in the context of rigorous science.
Train complementary and alternative medicine researchers.
Disseminate authoritative information to the public and professionals.
I encourage you to access their data base by using the search function to search information on up to date research on complementary and alternative medicine.

To access information on any medication or nutritional trials currently being
researched you can also access ClinicalTrials.gov.
It offers up-to-date information for locating federally and privately supported
clinical trials for a wide range of diseases and conditions. A clinical research
trial is a study in human volunteers to answer specific health questions.
Interventional trials determine whether experimental treatments or new ways of
using known therapies are safe and effective under controlled environments.
Observational trials address health issues in large groups of people or
populations in natural settings.
ClinicalTrials.gov currently contains over 80,000 trials sponsored by the National Institutes of Health, other federal agencies, and private industry. Studies listed in the database are conducted in all 50 States and in over 170 countries. ClinicalTrials.gov is a service of the U.S. National Institutes of Health (NIH), through its National Library of Medicine (NLM), has developed this site in collaboration with the Food and Drug Administration.
