 Photo     W.A. Shrader, Jr., MD, Board Certified in Environmental Medicine, Fellow of the American Academy of Environmental Medicine

Phone: 505-983-8890. Phone Hours: Tues., Wed., Thurs 9:00 AM - 4:00 PM. Dr. Shrader is in on Tuesdays and Thursdays.

       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.

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 testifies as an expert 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:

  1. Allergy and Eczema of all types and associated health problems. LDA works dramatically well for all skin conditions due to allergy

  2. Anaphylaxis to peanut and shrimp and associated health problems, such as urticaria (hives) and angioedema
  3. Autoimmune diseases, including rheumatoid arthritis, ankylosing spondylitis, systemic lupus, scleroderma, autoimmune degenerative arthritis, ulcerative colitis, interstitial cystitis, psoriasis, eosinophylic esophagitis, reactive arthritis and many others.  We employ an active immunization for these problems, based on the principals of molecular mimicry, and have recently added autologous ("from self") LDA vaccines that can treat a myriad of autoimmune disorders. We have developed new methods using LDA (autogenous LDA) to treat many more autoimmune diseases than we were able before, so if you have almost any autoimmune disease, we finally may have an immunotherapy that could work for you and get you off of your medications! We know this is very difficult to believe, but the door is just opening with LDA for the treatment of autoimmune disorders, and the future appears bright.

  4. Dietary issues of all kinds, including those dealing with food allergy or sensitivity, no matter how severe, including anaphylaxis to any environmental agent, including peanut and shrimp. Did you know that fatigue and "spaciness" are very commonly caused by food sensitivities?

  5. Behavioral and developmental disorders, including autism, Tourette's Syndrome, ADD, hyperactivity and ADHD

  6. Hormonal dysfunction of all types, including treatment with natural thyroid, female bioidentical hormones and natural adrenal hormones. Forouz specializes in hormones, and Dr. Shrader is referring most of our patients who require hormones to her excellent care. Forouz participates in almost all insurance coverage.

            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: Please do not call our office for LDA questions, general or specific. If you would like to speak personally with Dr. Shrader, you can certainly make a phone appointment. We hope you understand that we cannot answer common questions regarding LDA from patients who are not ours without becoming totally overwhelmed. 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, as he or she can send any pertinent information about you to us prior to the appointment (your specific LDA dose, etc.).

Pink Books: Physicians or patients ordering the LDA Pink Book may order one or more by e-mailing baprosch@aol.com. They cost $3.50 each plus shipping.
