Dr. Schachter will be speaking at this informative expo on Saturday, May 3, chosen as one of the eight Richard Linchitz Cancer Free Master Minds, the topic being the prevention and reversal of chronic, life-threatening conditions. Dr. Schachter will speak at greater length on Sunday, May 4, at 12:00 noon in room B, the topic being the alternative approach to the prevention and treatment of cancer. May 3 is free to the public, and May 4 is $10 for the day to see all lectures and visit exhibitors. 

Cancer continues to be one of our most challenging health problems. Dr. Schachter will discuss an approach to preventing and treating cancer which does not accept conventional treatment as a given, but encourages everyone to explore what is known and what is not known before making decisions about treatment. Rather than focus on surgery, radiation and chemotherapy, Dr. Schachter suggests changes in the habits that led to the development of the cancer in the first place. These may be utilized with conventional treatment or in some cases, instead of it. Dr. Schachter will briefly discuss some of the modalities that he is currently finding most useful.

Preventing and Managing
Violent Behavior

Dr. Schachter was interviewed on local cable TV 
Restoring Kids' Health Holistically
part of a series of shows hosted by Gracelyn Guyol

Dr. Schachter was interviewed on June 25 and again on July 2, discussing holistic, non-pharmaceutical alternatives which may help to alleviate the violent behavior exhibited by many young people today. Our news continues to be full of shocking incidents committed by children and teens, despite their being on prescribed meds. Dr. Schachter explained how making healthy changes in diet and balancing neurotransmitters through nutritional supplementation can bring vast improvement in childhood and young adult behavior.

The Schachter Center now has both DVDs of Dr. Schachter's two-show interview: Managing & Preventing Violent Behavior, Part 1 (June 25, 2013) and Managing & Preventing Violent Behavior, Part 2 (July 2, 2013), both available for purchase. (Other DVDs by Dr. Schachter are also available. See the list here.)

Gracelyn Guyol's press release for this show follows:

Press Release Submitted by Gracelyn Guyol:

Psychiatrist Offers Ways to Reduce Violent Behavior in Kids

Stonington, CT --While global media focused on potential gun legislation following the Newtown school shootings, author and cable TV producer Gracelyn Guyol began a new 13 show series of 55 minute interviews with medical practitioners on Restoring Kids Health Holistically, including seven episodes about effective, drug-free methods for treating violence and other mental disorders in children.

Two interviews of Michael B. Schachter, MD, on Preventing and Managing Violent Behavior will air June 25 and July 2, at 9 PM EST, on Comcast Channel 12. Dr. Schachter is a board certified psychiatrist, former president of the American College for Advancement in Medicine, and director of the Schachter Center for Complementary Medicine in Suffern, NY. He has treated mental illness for 30 years using nutritional, orthomolecular and environmental medicine before resorting to psychiatric drugs.

On June 25th, Dr Schachter explains why he treats integratively, beginning with what school shooters and many mass murderers have in common: use of SSRIs (selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors), a group of antidepressants known to trigger mania, psychosis, hostility, aggression, and suicide. Despite FDA "Black Box" warnings to this effect on all SSRIs, roughly 250 million prescriptions are filled each year due to pharmaceutical industry's influence over the American Medical Association and most physicians' education.

The second interview of Dr. Schachter, airing July 2, outlines a holistic, drug-free approach. Why a nutrient-dense, healthy diet is necessary for emotional balance. How lack of sleep, excess sugar, junk food and gluten intolerance or other allergies contribute to violence. Studies are introduced demonstrating how daily vitamin and mineral supplements reduce juvenile delinquency and that just one elevated toxin in children - lead - correlates with later criminality, making detoxification crucial to recovery. He explains the relationship between increased violence in kids and their high "body burden" of toxins from too many vaccines, chemicals, and environmental pollutants interfering with gene functions, and offers steps toward reversing this sad trend.
