While no one doubts that body, brain, and mind comprise an integrated system; modern psychiatry is increasingly practiced in an organ and symptom-specific manner. Integrative Psychiatry attempts to unify this fragmented approach in a responsible, scientific and clinically useful manner.


Integrative Psychiatry offers to optimize current available treatments, since the rush for scientific progress marginalizes proven treatments and age-old wisdom.


By using available knowledge, based on solid scientific data, TIIPS highlights the benefit of merging complementary aspects of medicine and psychiatry.


We want to identify conditions where integrative approaches to body, mind, and treatment are essential to recovery and maintenance of good health.


In fact, far from being revolutionary, the body/mind connection is intuitively grasped by all, and has been that way throughout human history.


The Institute consists of renowned physicians, academicians and healthcare professionals, all of whom are committed to making a positive contribution to the way we treat our patients.


Our guiding principle is ‘Optimizing currently available treatments’ rather than looking for new ones.

The Fanciful Alternative

The Fanciful Alternative

“When a dream comes true, you lose a dream”  Dr. K.

The future provides an endless parade of fanciful alternatives. “Wouldn’t it be nice if…” - you say to yourself and suddenly that thought becomes, well, a possibility. We are immersed in figments of our imagination that add false trajectories, existences, and memories. Some imaginings like nostalgia and daydreaming sweeten the memories, and upgrade the present. Other, painful imaginings e.g. anticipatory anxiety, pessimism, bitterness, and vengeance mar our happiness.

Enduring fantasies can feel very real. So real, in fact, that we often experience them as an alternative to our actual life. That alternate “reality” is a cause of many bad decisions and wrong turns into second-rate life trajectories. We can assume therefore that decisions based on reality vs. fantasy are bound to produce choices more beneficial to your life.
