The office has moved! After 21 years at our old location, we've moved to another office and now practice with a wonderful P.A., Forouz Jowkar, who specializes and is Board-certified in Functional Medicine, and with whom Dr. Shrader has worked for several years. The new address is still in town in Santa Fe, located in an office complex at 1925 Aspen Drive, Suite 100 B, off St. Michael's Drive (down from the Social Security Administration Bldg. on Aspen and Fifth). It is the first building on the left when you enter the complex.
Important: We now have a new LDA treatment for Lyme disease. It is in the very early stage, but it looks as if it could be the most dramatically effective treatment for Lyme available. No antibiotics, just immunotherapy.
Introduction: Our Ofice and What We Do
Santa Fe Center for Allergy & Environmental Medicine is located in the picturesque city of Santa Fe, New Mexico (yes, New Mexico is located in the United States, not in Mexico!). Santa Fe is nestled in the foothills of the beautiful Sangre de Cristo Mountains in the Southern Rockies at an altitude of 7000 feet. The air is clean and crisp, and there is no industry here, so it's an ideal place to come to get out of the smog pollution. Santa Fe is known around the world for its art, and museums abound. The famous Santa Fe Opera season draws opera buffs from around the country in the summer; the Santa Fe Ski Basin offers wonderful winter skiing and is only an hour or so from the world class Taos Ski Resort.
At the Santa Fe Center, we treat many illnesses related to patients' interaction with the environment. Dr. Shrader uses a method of advanced immunotherapy called LDA, short for Low Dose Allergen therapy or Ultra Low Dose Enzyme Activated Immunotherapy, to treat patients with many types of allergies and sensitivities, including those caused by foods, pollens, molds, dust and chemicals. This includes autoimmune disorders such as rheumatoid arthritis, systemic lupus, and many others (see below).
As a physician board certified by the American Board of Environmental Medicine, and a Past President and Fellow of the American Academy of Environmental Medicine (AAEM), Dr. Shrader treats environmental illnesses and allergy with modalities such as nutritional therapy (oral and IV), dietary therapy and many others, and employs IV therapy for detoxification when necessary.
Dr. Shrader offers treatment for patients with mold sensitivity and has been recognized in court as an expert in New Mexico for patients who are involved in legal issues having to do with mold exposure.
We also offer IV therapy with nutrients (Meyer's), LDA IVs, and glutathione for detoxification from exposures to chemical or other harmful agents.
We also treat patients with:
We offer consultation by telephone for patients who would like more detailed information about their specific health issues. Please feel free to call the office and ask whether we treat your specific problems - that costs nothing. If you need further initial information and need to talk with Dr. Shrader, you will be charged.
Please use the tabs to the left to browse our site. We hope you find what you're looking for here, and again, welcome!
Note to LDA patients of other physicians: We're sorry to have to tell you this, but please do not call our office for LDA questions, general or specific. If you would like to speak personally with Dr. Shrader, we welcome phone appointments. We hope you understand that we would be entirely overwhelmed if we were to answer common questions regarding LDA from patients who are not Dr. Shrader's. If you do make an appointment by phone, Dr Shrader would ask that you ask permission from your regular LDA Physician to consult with him or her, as he or she could then send any pertinent information about you to us prior to the appointment (we usually need to know your specific LDA dose, etc.). Please note that Dr. Shrader cannot prescribe medications for you unless he has seen you personally and you are an established patient.
Pink Books: We apologize, but we cannot sell the Pink Book to other LDA Physician's patients. Physicians ordering the LDA Pink Book for their office may order one or more by e-mailing email@example.com. They cost $4.00 each plus shipping and are extremely helpful for patients who have questions. Revised at least yearly, newest edition is May 2014.
