Alternative therapies, despite the term, should not be considered as an alternative to antiepileptic medication; they complement accepted drug treatment.

Integration is defined as the weaving of new possibilities, new alternatives, and new options into a cloak of security where concepts of health or wellness are actualized. In integration, the mind, body, and soul are open to explore and embrace these new possibilities, alternatives, and options. The authors believe the process of integration, and thus health, is enhanced via synergy; particularly the synergy created by the provider/individual relationship.
