Dr. Gertler uses safe, gentle and natural techniques to treat chronic diseases and pain which are otherwise thought to be untreatable.  Chelation therapy using intravenous infusions of a synthetic amino acid EDTA, is employed to reverse the full spectrum of arteriosclerosis cardiovascular disease symptoms.  A novel approach to treating chronic diseases (ALS, MS, Parkinson’s disease, Alzheimer’s disease), fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue syndrome and autoimmune diseases has proven quite effective by combining intravenous therapies with herbs, vitamins, micronutrients, and detoxification regimens.  “Lyme literate” protocols are given special focus with a uniquely effective, multifactorial approach to treating this daunting chronic infection.  A diversity of options concentrating on addressing underlying causes are provided for chronic candida infections.  Vibration therapy is included.  Special attention is given to treating gastrointestinal issues as they relate to chronic degenerative diseases.  A hands on healing method, IonCleanse detoxification footbath and SCENAR computerized electronic biofeedback system are additional therapeutic options available to Dr. Gertler to assist in harmonizing and integrating the beneficial effects of the other therapies especially with regard to pain control.

Dr. Gertler has received specialized training in the use of bioidentical hormones and anti-aging therapy to provide a natural framework for alleviating the symptoms of menopause and andropause, as well as adrenal and thyroid issues.
