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.
is almost certainly a different kind of clinic from any you have been
to before. Our slogan of "Causes Identified... Causes Addressed...
Health Restored" is the way we practice. We want you to overcome
your health problems, enjoy a higher level of health and be able to
decrease your dependence on health care providers of all types.
Stage:Initial Visit and
the first visit you will spend about an hour with Dr. Goldberg. During
this time you will be interviewed (case history) to begin uncovering
the causal factors behind your problems. This will be followed by a
physical examination and appropriate laboratory testing specific to
your needs. These procedures will allow us to learn a great deal about
you. Please share with Dr. Goldberg your concerns and goals for your
health during this time.
testing is for educational purposes to help uncover the
factors that have contributed to your problems and what needs to be
done to address them. We conduct specific types of functional,
nutritional/biochemical oriented, lab work that needs be performed
according to our specifications to insure that the appropriate
information is obtained. Dr. Goldberg will also be happy to review any
prior lab work that you have had done within the past six months. Lab
testing also serves as a way to monitor your progress as you proceed
with your program.
Stage: The Report of Findings
Dr. Goldberg will review
your test results (you will receive copies of all studies) and lay out
an individualized, plan to follow (usually for a thirty day period). Be
ready to get to work!
patients will begin with a short period of detoxification involving a
limited dietary and/or liquid diet, or in some cases a short fasting
period. In some cases a detoxification period will be employed at a
later date after other immediate concerns are addressed. Your lifestyle
habits will be carefully considered and steps taken to optimise the
renewal of your energy. Many patients feel a significant improvement by
the end of this stage.
Stage: Reconstruction Stage
Components include (1)
Dietary reform (2) Stess reduction (3) Energy renewal/conservation (4)
Immune/Endocrine/Nervous system balancing (5) Neutraceutical employment
(6) Addressing specific issues revealed in lab testing e.g. heavy metal
toxicity, intestinal dysbiosis, functional hormonal imbalances, etc. If
appropriate to your case (6) Body work sessions may be suggested
involving trigger point therapy, accupressure, gentle spinal
adjustments, physiotherapy, or other non invasive work to expedite your
Changes Along The Way
As you progress it is essential to make
periodic changes. At follow up visits, usually once per month, Dr.
Goldberg will examine and interview you to determine what steps need to
be altered to insure ongoing progress. As needed, lab tests that were
abnormal may be repeated. If you are not making progress we will find
out why and make the necessary alterations.
Your Appointments and Staying the Course
not miss or postpone visits as monitoring at scheduled intervals is
imperative. It is our goal to help you improve your health as rapidly
as possible but we need your cooperation. Missing or delaying your
appointments will seriously jeopardize your progress.
Work and Patience
takes work and time to reverse chronic health problems. We hope you
will roll up your sleeves and do the hard work required. We can help
show you the way but you must implement the program designed for you.
In general, patients with chronic health issues require four to six
months to start observing benefits if they are following directions. It
is our goal to help you recover your health in as short a time as
possible but health has to be regained in accordance with physiological
laws and in chronic illnesses a degree of patience is often required.
