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

Background of IBD and
the Current State of
Medical Understanding and
appreciate the extraordinary suffering thousands of people endure from
the ongoing torture of chronic inflammation of the intestines/colon.
Children and adults alike suffer from these syndromes which often
result in a lifetime of severe pain, life disruption and hopelessness.
bowel disease (IBD) is the general term used to refer to inflammatory
diseases of the intestines, including the major syndromes of Crohn's
disease and ulcerative colitis both of which are medically considered
to be of unknown cause.
The diagnosis of inflammatory
bowel disease is based upon internal visual examination of the
intestines by sigmoidoscopy, endoscopy, colonoscopy and/or barium enema
and by biopsy of intestinal tissue. The symptoms of ulcerative colitis
include intestinal cramping and spasm, the presence of blood and/or
mucus in the stool, weight loss, a sense of urgency and diarrhea.
Crohn's disease is characterized by repeated bouts of fever and
diarrhea accompanied by right lower quadrant pain, tenderness and the
presence of perianal disease with abscess and/or fistula
colitis can best be described as an inflammatory, ulcerating,
pathological process affecting the colon while Crohn's disease is
defined as chronic inflammation of the small intestine primarily
involving the distal small intestine, at times gradually moving to the
colon at which point it is...
