At a young age, Dr. James E. McMinn accompanied his army father across the world—a journey that gained the attention of Birmingham Medical News. This early exposure to other cultures introduced Dr. McMinn to a panoply of cultures, but most importantly, it taught him to find common ground between his beliefs and those of others. Now, as an established Western-trained doctor with more than two decades of experience, Dr. McMinn has found a balance between healing patients with science-based treatments and holistic therapies. And it is back in his hometown of Birmingham that he provides these integrative medical.
Dr. McMinn leads a dedicated team, working from the belief that health issues, including fatigue, hair loss, and low libido, can be prevented. He’s even formulated foundations of wellness, which label "nutrition, hydration, exercise, and sleep" as the basic building blocks of healthy living. From that foundation, the staff—which includes a doctor of Chinese medicine, registered nurse, professional counselor, and medical assistants—aims to attack maladies at the root with a variety of treatments, such as acupuncture, hormone therapy, and FDA breast-cancer screenings with thermography.
