Rheumatoid Disease & Ulcerative Colitis
Physicians told Dr. Goldberg as a young man that he would be permanently crippled by severe rheumatoid disease, accompanied by advanced ulcerative colitis, environmental allergies, chronic fatigue and psoriasis (see picture on left). Through the study and disciplined application of nutritional biochemistry, clinical epidemiology and natural hygiene, he recovered his health (current picture on right).
Since that time, for over thirty years, Dr. Goldberg has successfully helped chronically ill patients from across the U.S. recover from a wide variety of difficult, chronic, conditions by carefully seeking out and addressing the individual causes of ill health.
The Goldberg Clinic in Atlanta, Georgia has successfully helped reverse rheumatoid diseases and other chronic health problems for patients from across the United States for over 30 years.
Dr. Paul A. Goldberg utilizes a unique, comprehensive, individualized, approach developed from his own rheumatoid disease experience, many years of clinical practice and serving as a University Professor of Rheumatology, Gastroenterology and Nutrition.
At the Goldberg Clinic, Clinical Epidemiology, Nutrition and Biological Medicine are skillfully employed to focus in on the root causes of each patient's condition. It is by addressing the individual causes of disease in each person, rather than treating the symptoms, that patients with rheumatoid and other chronic illnesses are able to experience a level of health restoration few thought would ever be possible.
The Goldberg Clinic Approach: Each Patient Is Unique
Patients at the Goldberg Clinic are carefully analyzed to understand their unique traits. Many failed to regain their health elsewhere not only due to pharmaceutical dependence but also because their physicians placed them on one-size fits all regimens that focused on symptoms rather than the causes of their disease.
We work to identify and address the causes of disease and have done so since our clinical work started over three decades ago. The restoration of a patient's health through the renewal and balancing of their digestive, immune, endocrine and nervous systems is our priority. We employ neither standard medicine nor "alternative medicine” since both involve symptomatic care and neither sufficiently address causal factors.
We understand the appropriate medical use of pharmaceuticals but disagree with the haphazard manner in which they are often employed, leading to serious complications and a perpetuation of chronic illness.
Every patient, even those with the same medical diagnosis, are different. Many require significant nutritional modification, gastrointestinal balancing and metabolic detoxification. Some require an individualized program to address the effects of long term stress or hormone imbalance. Consideration of individual biochemical traits is always a priority at our clinic. The "body heals itself" but only if one knows how to create the conditions that allow healing to occur.
Dr. Goldberg has helped numerous patients overcome a wide variety of rheumatoid, autoimmune, digestive, allergic and other chronic conditions. Standard and alternative medicine primarily address symptoms while we employ restorative measures that specifically target causal factors. This important distinction is why our success rate with chronically ill patients is high and why The Goldberg Clinic attracts patients from across the United States and internationally.
Modern functional lab analysis helps educate patients as to the sources of their problems and assists in monitoring their progress. In addition to teaching laboratory sciences at a University and holding diplomate status with the American Clinical Board of Nutrition, Dr. Goldberg has served as a consultant to two prestigious clinical laboratories. This experience helps assure that our patients obtain the right tests and that they are optimally applied to each person's advantage.

Dr. Goldberg is a graduate of the University of Texas Medical Center Graduate School of Public Health where he specialized in Chronic Disease Control and wrote his thesis on Biological Approaches to Rheumatoid Diseases over thirty years ago. His professional career spans 25 years as a University Professor of Clinical Nutrition, Rheumatology and Gastroenterology and 35 years of clinical practice focusing on patients suffering from rheumatoid and other chronic conditions. Dr. Goldberg's extensive background along with his own journey back to health from serious rheumatoid disease, make him exceptionally well qualified to help those with difficult health problems return to good health.
Dr. Goldberg is a founding member of the International Natural Hygiene
Society, which promotes health independence.
"I know the frustration of being sick and not being able to find help. The agony of running from one doctor to another without finding someone who can put all the pieces together. It is my intent to bring the skills developed over many years to each patient and involve the patient as a partner in the healing process."
