Ehrhardt has set an impressive standard of care for his health care center. Dr. Ehrhardt currently acts as Chief General Practitioner at the Ehrhardt Center for Integrative Medicine, with specialties in the fields of Bio-chemical disorders and Nutrition. He has extensive clinical experience and a scope of expertise that extends to a broad methodology for effective health care. Dr. Ehrhardt couples his multi-faceted approach with an emphasis on patient education and involvement. He teaches his patients about their body’s individual messages, and involves each patient as a critical member of the health care team.

Dr. Ehrhardt integrates the major evidence-based variables of health by interpreting the nutritional uptake of energy.  . He analyzes patients’ baseline chemistry to pinpoint the origin and contributing factors of specific disorders. Dr. Ehrhardt has developed advanced nutritional systems to balance the exchange of internal energy.  He facilitates ideal gastric activity and monitors the chemical precursors of ideal systemic energy to eradicate disorders and create an optimal environment for accelerated healing.

Dr. Ehrhardt has advanced training in Integrative Medicine.   For many years he has maintained a successful medical practice at the Ehrhardt Center in New Jersey, where he has reversed numerous conditions, including diabetes.   As the author of the soon-to-be released book, “Optimal Energy for The New Language of Health“, Dr. Ehrhardt continues to redefine his commitment to education and innovation to eradicate society’s most endemic disorders.

Professional Experience

2006 - PresentThe Ehrhardt Center for Integrative Medicine, Basking Ridge, New Jersey: Established and maintained Integrative Medical Practice for the primary care of weight related illnesses, Syndrome X, and Diabetes, Heart Disease, Cancer and other metabolic disorders. 

I perform the following in my practice:

  2.  Integrate all of the evidence-based variables of health through the forensic and explicit physiological determinates of homeostasis.
  3. Balance the energy expenditure by reducing the digestive resistance.
  4. Further prove that timing and gastric acid secretions correlate with the speed of mastication and the effectiveness of salivary amylase; and facilitate and maintain ideal gastric acid secretions.
  5. Monitor the physical and chemical precursors of ideal energy expenditure for a reduced set point controlling the appetite and hunger.
  6. Evaluate blood test results and test urine and saliva throughout the patient process.
  7. Facilitate knowledge-based psychological support to sustain permanent health and well-being.
