IMMH Conference in Orange County, California
Sept. 28-Oct 1, 2017

I have been invited to speak at the 8th annual IMMH 2017 conference that will be held in Hyatt Regency Orange County, California. I will be discussing ‘Botanicals for Depression’ using Rhodiola, St. John’s Wart, Curcumin, and Saffron. Botanicals have long been a part of the healing traditions in many cultures for depression. Certain medicinal herbs have increasing evidence-based research and thus can be part of the toolbox for an integrative medical practice. Yet, having a greater understanding of the complexities that herbs present are critical in having a successful outcome when prescribing them for your patients.

Pan American Integrative Medicine Conference in South Africa
May 4-6, 2017

I have been invited to speak at the inaugural conference on Pan American Integrative Medicine Conference in South Africa from May 4-6. It will take place in the wine country near Cape Town.

While in South Africa, I plan to host “Spirit of South Africa: Seeking the Divine, Staying Present with the Sacred,” May 6-17, 2017, a travel experience for seekers, culture enthusiasts and yoginis on the go.

I am looking for 7-10 people to come along with me. The focus will be near to Cape Town and the nearby areas with one safari that is closer than Krueger at this time. I am seeking to have a spiritual focus that explores the Divine and connecting with the lands. I am seeking to have a local native healer to be a part of the experience as well.


Author of Cleanse Your Body, Reveal Your Soul

Judith E. Pentz, MD, is a holistic, alternative and integrative psychiatrist with board certification in child, adolescent and adult psychiatry. She seeks to combine the best of Western and integrative medicine for support of your mental well being. The goal is to be as gentle as possible and to stimulate the natural healing mechanisms that we all have in our body.

Some of the modalities may include orthomolecular, nutritional options, homeopathy, targeted amino-acid therapy, breathing techniques and meditation as well as other options. The integrative approach includes the spiritual and emotional part of our being, as well the mental and physical part of our being. Therapy is often necessary to support the many changes that are part of the integrative approach. This may include brief individual therapy, family therapy, or more intense, depth psychotherapy.  Guidance towards the best integrative approach can be considered.
