The effectiveness of our approach comes from several factors: we not only view each case individually; we use a team approach including close communication with primary care phycisians, relevant specialists and our expertise to find the best way of treating the underlying problems. Here at SBMI we are applying an integrative approach to heal the whole organism by using advanced contemporary medicine as well as alternative (herbal and homeopathic remedies), advanced psychotherapeutic and medical hypnotherapy techniques. We are known to be succesful in achieving positive outcomes in most  cases of sleep, behavioral and emotional disorders, as well as learning disabilities, somatic and immune disorders.
