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
The first fifty are patient letters alone. For a more in depth look at some of our patients successes an additional Sixty Seven Case Studies are accompanied by a clinical explanation of the patient's background by Dr. Goldberg. There are also an additional Twenty Four Rheumatoid Disease case studies focusing on patients with Rheumatoid Diseases.
husband and I are just thrilled to see changes in such a short period
of time....I want to thank you for your encouragement. It's one thing
to equip a patient with the knowledge, tools, and instruction they need
to get better, it's another to give them hope and encouragement along

Dear Dr. Goldberg:
I am not one prone to write testimonials. After 13 years of floundering
around trying to get well, and then getting well after only four months
of care with you I feel I have to share my experience.
My stomach ulcers were getting unbearable. REALLY UNBEARABLE. No body,
no doctor helped me to any extent. My life was getting to be a constant
misery. Running from doctor to doctor to doctor of every type.
Meanwhile, I developed headaches and was starting to get joint and back
pain. You were right. It is all connected. When you wanted to get
samples of my hair and stool in addition to my blood samples, I thought
you must be nuts. The information you turned up, and what you did with
it in getting me well..., its unbelievable!!! All those years that I
suffered needlessly!!! All that money I wasted with other doctors and
You are one in a million!!! My life is now a joy rather than a misery,
and now I understand how I can stay well and out of the doctors office.
My wife says I am like a new person….and she is right!!
Yes, it took a little patience on my part, and the willingness to
participate in my healing program, but the rewards were enormous.
I thank you from the bottom of my heart.

Dear Dr. Goldberg:
Thank-you for helping me get on a healthy track. For the last ten years
I have been in declining health. The breaking point was after the birth
of my second baby. I had no energy, severe insomnia, low back
pain, blood sugar imbalances, and severehip
was overweight. At 30 years old I was looking at years of ill health.
The first place I went was to my chiropractor. He did numerous x-rays
and adjustments. I wouldn't hold my adjustments and found no relief
from the excruciating pain. It was depressing! Next I was referred to
an orthopedic doctor. Two MRI's and six weeks of physical therapy
didn't do any good. I was just out of a lot of time and money but saw
no relief. I went to an endocrinologist for my blood sugar and thyroid
problems. All he said was it was something "I just would have to deal
with for the rest of my life". That was not encouraging! I was at my
wits end. I was in so much pain I couldn't do anything but lay on the
couch. My husband and I had to have meals brought in by our Sunday
school class and we hired someone to come in and take care of our two
little girls. I went back to the chiropractor and just happened to ask
about a "nutritionist". That is when I found Dr. Goldberg. My first
visit I cried because I knew this was my last hope of maybe restoring
my health and quality of life.
Dr. Goldberg told me he wanted me to concentrate on getting me healthy
and that as a result my complaints could be resolved. He reccomended I
have several tests done to see what was going on with me. I had the
tests done and they revealed high cholesterol, low amino acids, yeast
overgrowth, food allergies, the wrong kinds of bacteria in my
intestines, along with high blood pressure. This along with my insulin
and thyroid made me a walking time bomb.
First Dr. Goldberg put me on a liquid diet for ten days. Within
five days my hip pain was completely gone. My blood pressure normalized
and I lost 12 pounds. After day ten we began to introduce some
whole natural foods. To date as of six weeks later, my blood pressure
is normal, my hip pain has not returned, I
sleep great, I have lots of energy, I have lost 20 pounds, and my
cholesterol is down 37 points, and last but not least my adjustments
have held for six weeks I
I have learned that the right food is so important for optimum health.
If we don't take care of ourselves we get sick. I am living proof that
poor eating habits can result in poor quality of life and ill health. I
am just glad that I got the right help and am now healthy and happy.
Thank-you Dr. Goldberg.
My name is Robert Chapman.
I am twenty-six years old and live in Lafayette, Indiana. I have had
psoriasis for ten years and Psoriatic Arthritis for about a year. My
condition finally got to the point that I had to try a new treatment.
The drugs and creams were not working. I heard of Dr. Goldberg from my
sister and decided to give him a try. Well, I am glad that I did. I
have been under his care for a month and most of the pain and swelling
from the Arthritis has gone. I also have seen a very noticeable
improvement in the psoriasis. I have great faith and respect for Dr.
Goldberg's method of healing and would recommend that anyone that has
health problems of any kind could benefit from his treatment. I feel
that I owe Dr. Goldberg for my new life.
Dear Dr. Goldberg -
All I can say is wow! I can't believe how great I feel after all these
years of feeling so bad. My colon problems gone. My arthritis almost
gone. I sleep well for the first time in 20 years. My skin has cleared
up and I've got loads of energy!
All that money I invested on M.D.'s and drugs!
All that money I wasted going to other chiropractors and therapists!
All that nonsense about not being able to get better!
You found the causes of my disease and together we got me well.
You were right - it takes some guidance & patience but the results
were well worth it. I figured I spent over $ 24,000 in doctor bills
just in the past 12 years and only got worse and spent only a fraction
of that with you (mostly for tests) and now have the answers that have
made me well & can keep me well.
Thank-you for your patience with me, your understanding, and your
wisdom & kindness. I am indebted to you for a new life.

To Whom It May Concern:
If you are waiting to see Dr. Goldberg, congratulations! You are taking
a very important first step toward sound health. I have been a patient
of Dr. Goldberg's for 5 months and have never felt better.
Initially I came to Dr. Goldberg's office with complaints of stiffness
in my joints, bloating and stomach pains which were, at times severe.
This condition worsened when my stiff joints became painful and
swollen. Even on good days, it took me forever to get out of bed in the
morning, due to the pain in every joint in my body. On several
occasions, my knees and ankles became so swollen I was unable to walk
at all. I found myself literally incapacitated.
I was tested for rheumatoid arthritis and lupus, but the results were
negative. I became very frustrated and worried, not knowing what was
wrong with me, and not making any improvement either. I felt as though
my 33 years of age had tripled. I was very scared.
Through his knowledge and experience Dr. Goldberg was able to solve the
case. My problem was one of increased intestinal permeability. With
enzymes, a smart diet and proper exercise, Dr. Goldberg has helped me
feel and look better than ever. I never really knew what it was like to
feel this good. I had always accepted that the way I felt was the way I
was supposed to feel.
I very much dislike going to doctors. In fact, I'm a lunatic when it
comes to illness. I literally had to be dragged in by my loving husband
to see Dr. Goldberg. It was unquestionably the smartest move I have
ever made. Dr. Goldberg has always been extremely sensitive to my
problems; he listens patiently to my fears and concerns, and takes the
time to answer my many questions. I am comfident that by following his
advice, I will continue to enjoy good health.
Thank you Dr. Goldberg. I feel great!

Dear Dr. Goldberg,
My husband and I were so encouraged after our last trip down to Atlanta
to see you. We had prayed several months over my health before God led
me to your web-site last fall. We give thanks to God for the healing
that's taking place in my body through your instruction, expertise, and
guidance. We recognize you and your clinic to be the answer to our
I can't imagine where I'd be right now, much less in five or ten years,
if we hadn't found you when we did. I knew my digestive system had
gotten worse, but I had no idea what was wrong or how to fix it. I
cringe when I remember the tests doctors put me through (a barium enema
and sigmoidoscopy) only to tell me that everything was "normal". Okay,
so I didn't have cancer, but did that mean my constipation was normal
and something I just had to live with for the rest of my life? Their
last attempt to remedy my constipation was to give me stool softeners,
but these didn't work any better than their other suggestions: eating
bran cereal every morning or taking Metamucil twice a day. I was
beginning to think there were no other alternatives.
My husband and I are just thrilled to see changes in such a short
period of time. The diagnostic tests were so enlightening. Finally,
there was someone to show us what was going on in my body. Between the
systemic yeast infection, low amino acids levels, food allergies, and
absence of two types of good bacteria in my gut, it's no wonder that my
bowels weren't moving properly through my colon. The new diet has been
so good for us as we are both eating healthier. I've lost an incredible
amount of weight and my bowels are moving better than they have in
years! It's just thrilling to be adopting a healthy lifestyle after so
many years of ignorance, abuse, and neglect.
I want to thank you for your encouragement. It's one thing to equip a
patient with the knowledge, tools, and instruction they need to get
better, it's another to give them hope and encouragement along the way.
Your kindness, my husband's steadfast commitment to walk this road with
me, and the loving grace of my God have enabled me to make great
strides toward health, healing, and wholeness. Thanks again, Dr.
Goldberg. I wish you had a clinic in every U.S. city so millions more
could be helped as I am.

TO WHOM IT MAY CONCERN
Thank you Dr. Goldberg there has been a different direction in my life
because of you.
The beginning of 1992 had a definite turn in my life. I was having
memory loss, fatigue, depression and dizziness. I was given a CT scan
and MRI: however, the finding from the tests did not show a reason for
my symptoms. Then in August, through the help of my son who is a
chiropractic student at Life College, recommended Dr. Goldberg to me.
Dr. Goldberg made tests to determine the reason for the way I felt.
After analyzing the tests and weeks on a special diet, he has made me
feel like a new person. The way I look and feel reflects my overall
good health. I am much more alert, able to cope, no longer dizzy and
have a lot more energy. Dr. Goldberg and I together accomplished my
overall good health through improved eating habits, supplements and
Dr. Goldberg, I again thank you and appreciate your knowledge to help
Hi Dr. Goldberg!
As you suggested, I wanted to write you and let you know how I am
doing. You may, as you asked, type my letter and send it back to me for
me to sign and then share it with other patients.
I must have been one of your toughest patients, not just because of the
type of chronic problems I had, but because it was so hard to convince
me to stay with the program you designed for me. I did want instant
relief and instant answers even though I had been sick for at least two
years when I first came to see you and nobody had been able to help me.
I really could not understand why you were so interested in my stomach
and intestines. I mean, I came to see you about my arthritis which had
gotten so severe. I did have lots of stomach problems but I did not see
how that was connected to joint and muscle pains. Then those stool
analyses by you.. .then the permeability studies, then the allergy
studies... if I had not been so desperate I would have never done
them... .and even after I did all the tests you still told me it was
going to take some time to get well... .no instant relief!! I was going
to give up. Then I figured that since no one else had given me any real
hope (except a couple other doctors who gave me a song and dance
routine about faith in modern medicine, or the Chiropractor who told me
that about 50 visits to his office would have me back in good shape
after I had already seen him 25 times without any improvement at all).
So, I changed my diet, I went through the detoxification program, I let
you adjust my back (right, see I did not say "pop" my back!), I took the
supplements, I went on a liquid diet, I took the stuff you said would
help decrease the permeability in my gut, I stayed away from the
allergens, I read the two books you made me read by Shelton and Allen,
and all the other directions and about three months later I woke up one
morning to find that I felt less stiffness. I found that my bowels were
beginning to work better without the cramping I used to have, that my
toes were not painful anymore, that my energy increased, and many other
health benefits. I did some of the Yoga you talked to me about, but not
all of it on a regular basis.
Today I am much, much, better. Most importantly I find that I am
gradually getting more improvement and not continuing to go downhill
like I was before. What I also like is now I am becoming less dependent
on Doctors. No more reliance on running to the Chiropractor three times
a week, or to the pharmacy for drugs. You taught me how to take care of
myself, what was wrong and what to do about it.
I am teaching my kids some of the things you taught me so that they can
learn how to take better care of themselves too! You are doing very
important work and those who continue to be doctor dependent for their
health deserve the illness they have in my opinion. We need more real
doctors like you who teach people how they got sick and how
they can get well and stay well.
Need I tell you how grateful I am to you?
With Warmest Regards,
Mrs. Karen Butler
Dear Dr. Goldberg:
It has been five months since I first came to see you, and I wanted to
let you know what has happened as a result of your care and expertise.
I originally came to see you because I was sick of being sick. Having
suffered with asthma and allergies all my life, I was susceptible to
every virus that came along. In 1994, I was on antibiotic therapy six
I felt tired all the time. Even with 9 hours of sleep a night, and
often a nap during the day, I still felt sluggish and listless. I had
no energy to live my life.
I am absolutely amazed and delighted by the results I have gotten.
During the past five months, I became sick only one time, and I recovered
in 1 week!
That is amazing. I have cut down on the medications I take for the
asthma and allergies, and I have completely eliminated allergy shots.
My energy level has increased, and I need less sleep. As an added
bonus, I have lost 30 pounds!
Your program is something I can stay with for the rest of my life. When
people ask me how long I have to stay on this diet, I tell them I'm not
ON a diet, I CHANGED my diet.
Thank you for your help and encouragement.

came to Dr. Goldberg because I wanted to stop using a synthetic
thyroid medication (Synthroid). I had been taking it for seven and a
half years. I
had heard Dr. Goldberg speak saying that he had had success in
helping people reduce the dosage or eliminate the drug altogether.
Until that time I had never even thought that I could or I should get
off of Synthroid. In
1985 I had symptoms of hypothyroidism. I was feeling sluggish, cold
and lacked energy. I had a test done that showed my thyroxine level to
be too low and an endocrinologist prescribed Synthroid to me. He said
it would alleviate all of my symptoms, and it did. What he did not tell
me was that over time Synthroid can cause ostereoporosis or it could
actually "burn out" your thyroid gland. On
my first visit to Dr. Goldberg he asked me how I felt. "Fine", was
my reply - although I did get my share of colds and was tired at times,
I thought I could handle things alright. I was skeptical at first
because I felt I had a pretty well balanced diet. After some tests were
done he found that the two amino acids used to make thyroxine were at
very low levels. With supplements of the amino acids plus a much better
diet, I have been able to eliminate Synthroid. It
is hard to describe how much better I feel. I have gone from low
energy to high. It's as if I was just getting by before. I am sleeping
better and my appetite is much healthier. If
you are contemplating getting off a drug, Dr. Goldberg is very good
at figuring out your particular health puzzle. There are ups and downs
to recovery but don't get discouraged - just stay with it.
