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. Read more

Dr. Goldberg enjoys an excellent reputation of helping people with
serious health problems regain their health, where other doctors and
methods have failed to do so. His extensive success in working with
clients employing Clinical Nutrition, Natural Hygiene and Biological
Medicine, his twenty two years as a University Professor of Nutrition,
Gastroenterology and Rheumatology, and his practice, research, and
writings in the fields of chronic diseases, have attracted patients
from throughout the U.S.

diagnosis, our mission is to help and we expect you will feel that
this is the right place to get the assistance you need.
This is a different kind of clinic...
are not a medical clinic nor are we simply another "alternative type
clinic" with a variety of "natural remedies." Dr. Goldberg has been
helping people through natural, hygienic, biological methods for over
twenty five years, long before the current "alternative" trend became
popular. There are numerous physicians who have jumped on the bandwagon
offering "natural therapies" while still adhering to the same treatment
of symptoms rather than addressing the root causes of people's illnesses.
the start of his career in 1976, Dr. Goldberg's focus and training has
been seeking out the causes of people's problems ... it was not
simply an afterthought brought about by the current marketing trends in
natural health care. The result of this is that you have a doctor
in whom Natural Health Care is integral to his training and experience,
not simply a later add on.

generous amount of time with his clients and will treat you with
understanding and compassion.
are numerous reasons why people become ill: genetic factors, dietary
imbalances, digestive problems, sleep habits, allergies, accidents,
toxicity, emotional, mental, and spiritual stressors, these and other
factors may be singly involved or there may be a combination of these
factors together creating your health difficulties. A chief task
for us will be to identify where your problems are coming from and
what steps you should take to improve your health.
are not only a drugless practice, we also avoid so called "natural"
agents such as herbs, homeopathics, and other materials that are
intended to "treat" disease symptoms. These materials may be less toxic
than drugs, but the rationale behind them is the same...the treatment
of symptoms rather than the removal of causes and the restoration of
optimal bodily functioning.
focus is helping people with difficult, chronic health problems. Our
goal is to improve the health and efficiency of the entire body. This
is the way that chronic health problems of any type should be addressed
and by doing so we have successfully assisted people over the years.

have successfully worked with hundreds of patients with such medical
syndromes, allowing these patients to evolve back into good health
(often after years of suffering and futile "treatments"). We address
the factors in each patient that are causing the symptoms of these
problems to occur rather than treat symptoms. When our clients improve
their health, they not only experience relief of their symptoms they
also enjoy vastly improved overall health with greater resistance and
freedom from disease for the entire body.
people diagnosed with rheumatoid arthritis or other medical diagnoses
will all have different reasons as to why they are ill. To simply
"treat the rheumatoid arthritis" (as is done medically) is to miss the
cause(s) of the problem and fail to provide the patient the opportunity
to evolve into improved, long term, good health. The program of
care provided for our clients is always based upon their personal
evaluation, not on the name of the disease they were labeled with.
How Is An Evaluation Conducted?
basic steps are involved in all health evaluations:
A thorough Case History during which the client will
be interviewed regarding their health history.
Appropriate Laboratory Testing. Most laboratory
testing we conduct is functionally oriented. This means that it is used
to asses the efficiency of the body systems and the body as a whole. We
do not use laboratory testing to merely arrive at a name for symptoms
as is commonly done medically. Laboratory testing helps provide
information to assess the current status of the body as well as help
point us in the correct direction to follow for health improvement.
steps generally take from one to two hours to perform on the initial
visit. We feel there is an absolute need to know our clients thoroughly
and we give each patient the time they deserve.
How Do We Go About Helping You Improve Your Health?
By determining the underlying causes of your condition using
the steps listed above.
Developing a care plan and discussing it with you.
Making recommendations to you based upon your condition and
Working together with you in carrying out the recommendations.
Clinical Steps Employed
Identify and remove causal factors responsible for poor
Where genetic factors play a significant role, determine what
steps should be taken hygienically and biochemically to compensate for
the genetic weaknesses.
Create conditions for adequate rest and detoxification of the
body as appropriate in each case. This includes identification and
removal of metabolic toxicities generated by inappropriate diet, poor
digestion, exogenous poisons, and excessive stressors over the years.
Restore efficient gastrointestinal functioning so that
nutrients may be absorbed, wastes are excreted efficiently, and optimal
nutritional/biochemical balance in the body is regained.
Employ a dietary specific to the patients needs both in terms
of restoration of balance and a general maintenance plan.
Employ specific measures for the needs of each client.
Educate the patient on methods to restore balance to the
endocrine, nervous, and immune systems and monitor the employment of
same as needed.
Educate the patient in hygienic principles so as to empower
him or her in maintaining their improvements.
differ widely depending on a client's needs and desires with each
client requiring different levels of investigation and laboratory
analysis. We do our best to keep your costs very reasonable.
Any concern for the cost of your care must, however, also take into
account what you are losing by staying sick. The cost of illness is not
only money, but lost time out of your life, lost enjoyment of
relationships, lost earnings from missing work or not being able to
give your work the effort it needs to be successful. The cost of being
short tempered with your family and not being able to engage in the
activities you would like to participate in and not enjoying life's
many wonderful experiences as you should be. Costs for professional
services are significantly below average as compared to other
offices with similar qualifications and services. Our patients receive
experienced care and a generous amount of quality time with the doctor.
Typically the initial office visit with Dr. Goldberg will last one hour
or longer and follow up visits 15 to 30 minutes in length.

matters are between you and your insurance carrier. Our office will
supply you with the necessary forms to file. The level of
reimbursement you receive depends on your insurance policy terms.
How long will it take for me to get better?
depends on how long you have been ill, how seriously ill you are, your
age, if you will allow a thorough investigation of your health status
and how much effort you are willing to make in recovering. It is
our goal see you improve in as short a time as possible. This is about
building real health, not simply suppressing symptoms temporarily
with drugs, herbs, manipulation, or other therapies.

A Note From Dr. Goldberg For
Those Seeking Help

difficult health problem that you are seeking help for. You have likely
discovered that treating problems with drugs is rarely a productive
approach and often leads to serious side effects.
approach differs with each patient. We don't have a one size fits all
program. All patients are individuals. Careful interview, case
history, physical exam, and functional laboratory testing are employed
to help us discover the root causes of each patient's problems. The
sciences of clinical epidemiology (the study of factors that lead to
health and disease) and Natural Hygiene (the study of nature as applied
to human health and welfare) are employed in evaluating and assisting
clinic does not treat symptoms. We do not rely on "remedies",
even "natural" ones, to "treat" our patients with. Our focus is to
search for causes of disease, the elimination of those causes, and the
provision of healthful factors that lead to vibrant health. It is by
taking this individualized approach that we have been so successful
over the years in helping chronically ill people with serious problems
gain better health.
