At the Schachter Center, we integrate
the best that conventional medicine has to offer along with the best, most
effective Alternative therapies which may include diet, nutrition,
herbal supplements and intravenous treatments, among others.
The Schachter Center offers Complementary
medicine, meaning that
appropriate alternative therapies can enhance or complement many conventional
therapies. If a pharmaceutical drug is the best choice for a particular
patient, we will use it. If we think vitamins, minerals, herbs, or
phytonutrients can better resolve a condition, we choose them. Or perhaps, a
combination of these approaches might be the best avenue of treatment. Every
patient is treated individually with a tailored plan for each.
We treat the whole person, not just the
physical body. For example, we encourage patients to develop coping
strategies to minimize stress, to meet with counselors, and to include bodywork, exercise
and spirituality in their treatment plan.
To illustrate what one might achieve here at
the center following this approach, we
are posting some of our patients' success stories to show what kinds of
experiences they've had at the Schachter Center. Names are kept anonymous
because of confidentiality, but we'll give a brief history and explain how the
patient is doing. Some patients have chosen to write their own success
their own words. Other stories are reports prepared by our practitioners.
