We are located right in the centre for state-of-the-art medicine in Switzerland, at the so-called Gold Coast on the right lakeside of Lake Zurich. Zurich downtown can be reached within 10 minutes by car and the airport Zurich-Kloten is within 30 minutes driving distance.

WE WORK WITHOUT PSYCHOTROPIC DRUGS WHENEVER POSSIBLE.

Our specialists from the areas of psychiatry, psychotherapy, orthomolecular medicine, alternative and complementary medicine as well as from preventive-, better aging- and lifestyle medicine, work without psychotropic drugs whenever possible. Instead, methods from integrative medicine take the organism back to the desired balance.

EXCELLENCE

THE CALDA CONCEPT: NEW WAYS TO FREEDOM

Integrative medicine in the service of psychiatry leads to new promising treatment strategies for phenomena like trauma, addiction, depression etc.

Psychological diseases do not only cause mental and physical pain but are also a threat to personal freedom. In many cases, the aftereffects of traumas limit the ability to act of those affected and lead to devastating dependencies. Currently, efforts are made to no longer classify psychiatric diseases by specific categories, but to summarize them by their spectrum of symptoms. The reason for this is that treating only the tip of the iceberg, the acute symptoms respectively does not prove to be effective and does not do justice to the individual in their entirety.
The greatest challenge in state-of-the-art psychiatry lies in consequently personalising the medical treatment. In order to elaborate individual therapy programmes, new paths need to be followed.

Dr. med. Claudia M. Elsig

Medical Specialist for Psychiatry and Psychotherapy
CEO and overall medical management

Psychiatry has to open up to the entire established medical world. The combination of field-tested and scientifically profound methods from conventional medicine, complementary medicine and Asian medicine in many cases leads to extraordinary results within short time. One of the keys to this success is, that these methods are summarised into personalised and holistic concepts by including the most current molecular and epigenetic insights.
This insight caused us to develop the CALDA concept. The CALDA concept includes new treatment strategies to overcome phenomena like trauma, addiction, stress, aging etc. The core of the concept is the advanced and deepened diagnostic system, the interpretation of results through an interdisciplinary team of experts and the development of personal, creative treatment strategies, which revert to all proven recipes taken from integrative medicine.
Our attitude towards the common practice of psychiatry of uncritically and sometimes hastily prescribing psychotropic drugs is a critical one. Therefore, we initially stop medication as far as possible to see what is underlying.

THEREFORE, WE INITIALLY STOP MEDICINE AS FAR AS POSSIBLE TO SEE WHAT IS UNDERLYING.

Through our yearlong experience in the direct clinical work with international clients with different backgrounds like nobility, arts, politics, showbiz, sports, economy and science, we are aware of their specific needs. Professionally successful people with great responsibility also have great expectations.
Our offer aims at personalities who seek a highly private, tailor-made rehabilitation programme, in a luxurious and exclusive environment.
We offer the utmost modern and state-of-the-art medicine in combination with premium hotel service and highest discretion.

OUR CLIENTS ARE SELF-PAYERS, WHICH IS THE BASIS TO ENABLING ABSOLUTE DISCRETION AND PRIVACY.

We are the only totally private Swiss institution with a profile of specialised precision medicine and an incomparably broad psychiatric indication spectrum.
The CALDA concept is outside any health insurance scheme. Our clients are self-payers, which is the basis to enabling absolute discretion and privacy. The CALDA concept is based on utmost respect for the personal integrity.
Are you searching for new ways? Does your high social position, your family background or your popularity require absolute discretion? Then, get in contact with us.

CLIENT

AT THE BEGINNING IS REALIZATION

Taking clients and their illnesses seriously does not only involve listening, being sensitive and sympathizing but also treating them consequently.

Any person can reach a point in their life at which it seems they can no longer go on or they face great challenges.
Traumatising childhood experiences, losses, separations, psychological or physical abuse as well as chronic stress can all be reasons for developing fears, depression, burnout, addictions or eating disorders.
Sleeping disorders, flashbacks, weight problems and serious health risks can result. As shame, guilt and helplessness are difficult to endure, addictive substances like alcohol, tablets and drugs are often used to suppress painful emotions and thoughts.

OUR CLIENTS ARE PROACTIVE PEOPLE HOLDING HIGH RESONSIBILITY FOR THEMSELVES AND OTHERS.

Our clients are proactive people holding high responsibility for themselves and others. Those who bring along the insight and motivation to take part in an efficient rehabilitation programme with a varied daily structure in an interested and engaged way will find the way back to quality of life within a short time. Our goal is to strengthen resilience.

DIAGNOSTICS

THE BASIS FOR A PERSONAL SUCCESS STRATEGY

The analysis of results is only one aspect. What we make of it is what is decisive.

Our opinion of diagnostics forces us to go far beyond the medical diagnostic routine. In addition to an extensive psychiatric diagnostic, we conduct a comprehensive clinical-chemical analysis and a targeted genetic analysis to determine the current status and the personal risk profile for the most significant chronic diseases. With the genetic analysis we analyse more than 30 genetic sequences. We determine the genetic pre-disposition, which means the risk factors for overweight, cardio-vascular diseases, cancer or diabetes mellitus. We also determine the metabolism type: slow, intermediary, extensive or ultra-fast.

ARMAMENTARIUM

THE RESOURCES OF INTEGRATIVE MEDICINE

The resources of psychiatry consist of empirical medicine and innovative research results. The individual success depends on the sensible design of the individual measures.

Integrative precision medicine is interdisciplinary and the future. We have an international team and a network of highly qualified specialists. We combine conventional medicine, orthomolecular medicine with alternative, complementary and lifestyle medicine and through this benefit from a limitless wealth of experience. As a team we develop harmoniously aligned holistic treatment concepts, which are adapted continuously. Our ability is based on knowledge, talent, experience and techniques. Through the combination, ability turns into the art, which delivers optimum results.

KNOWLEDGE

Knowledge means education and continuous training. Our doctors and therapists all have a qualified education from well-known universities, colleges and specialised clinics. Our physicians have a specific diploma. The continuous training keeps the team up to date with science. The quality insurance is secured by monthly external team- and single-supervision.

TALENT

When talent pairs with knowledge, passion, creativity and quality are the result. Talent cannot be measured by titles but is expressed through success.

EXPERIENCE

We understand experience as the practice that makes perfect. The specialists in our team and network bring thousands of hours of clinical work experience. Through the collaboration between young and older colleagues, an additional dynamic exchange of experiences results.

TECHNIQUES

When working on an individual holistic treatment concept we consult diverse techniques from multiple disciplines of medicine. When putting together a therapy plan the prospect of success is in focus. It is important that every step supports the entire process efficiently as part of the whole. The combination of measures leads to a useful compaction and catalysis. The basis for a successful therapy, in addition to the professionality of the therapist, is the trusting therapeutic relationship.

THE CALDA WAY

EVERY TREATMENT STRATEGY IS AS UNIQUE AS THE CLIENT

There cannot be routine and automatism in psychiatry. Every of our treatment strategies is a one-time recipe, which is re-invented every time.

We invest a lot of know-how and time into an extensive interdisciplinary diagnostic as a basis for further procedures. The results of these thorough examinations are interpreted multi-dimensional within the team of specialists. The same team is responsible for the correct conclusions to be drawn and priorities to be set. Based on this, for each client a personal holistic treatment strategy is developed, which includes the optimum treatment duration, the private in-patient living situation and further bio-psycho-social aspects.

During the entire duration of the treatment every client is accompanied by a personal coach as a contact person. The coach is of the same gender as the client and has a psychological background. He or she is responsible for the support of the therapy process and adherence to the therapy plan around the clock. In case of unforeseen events to happen during rehabilitation the treatment strategy is immediately adapted.

BACKGROUND

KNOWLEDGE, TALENT, EXPERIENCE AND PASSION MAKE THE DIFFERENCE

Entrepreneurially, we convince with highest professional competence, a structured way of working and the continuous willingness for innovation.

The Calda Clinic and the CALDA concept respectively, do not only base their existence on new ideas but especially on the personalities that are behind. The key persons are the members of the management, the board of directors, the advisory board and the international expert network.
