The Goldberg Clinic Approach
We do not "Treat" Disease. We Build Health.
It is difficult for patients not to be overwhelmed by their medical diagnoses. Our medical system is based on grouping disease symptoms into “diagnostic” titles followed by “medical treatments” for the title given. The outcome of this method has been symptomatic care that has frequently failed to restore health as evidenced by the growing number of people with chronic diseases. These patients are often subjected to destructive procedures and drugs riddled with dangerous side effects.
Daily we encounter patients who want to know if the Goldberg Clinic treats a specific disease allergies, cancer, multiple sclerosis, rheumatoid disease, gastrointestinal disorders, etc. Do we “treat “it”? The answer is we work with patients with virtually any medical diagnosis but do not “treat” any of them.
We are not trying to be elusive. Our goal is to identify the causes of dis-ease and restore optimal functioning of the entire body. In doing so we have restored health to thousands of chronically ill individuals with virtually every medical diagnosis. This logical approach is the outgrowth of Dr. Goldberg’s experience with chronic illness as a young man, his training in epidemiology and clinical nutrition, thirty-five years as a Professor of Clinical Nutrition, Gastroenterology and Rheumatology and his work with thousands of chronically ill patients whose health has been restored by addressing the causes of their disease and re-building their health.
Goldberg Clinic Methodologies: Bio-Hygiene™ and Re-Creation™
We refer to the process we employ to reverse chronic disease as Bio-Hygiene™. This method is unique to the Goldberg Clinic. The practice of Bio-Hygiene™ involves the time and labor-intensive endeavor of uncovering the causes of a patient’s health issues, developing an individualized approach for that patient’s needs and establishing the optimal conditions for the Re-Creation™ of their health. Bio-Hygiene™ does not involve the “treatment” of disease. Bio-hygiene™ is a unique approach to health that is dramatically different not only from Conventional Medicine but also from the plethora of Alternative, Integrative, Functional and Complimentary Medical practices that have become commonplace. It is not a form of medicine of any type nor is it meant to replace medical treatments of any type.
At the Goldberg Clinic, a patient’s journey begins with an intensive interview, asking the right questions, listening carefully to the answers and putting the pieces of the puzzle together, a skill Dr. Goldberg, trained as a Clinical Chronic Disease Epidemiologist, excels in. This is followed by a physical examination and appropriate laboratory studies, (conventional and functional) interpreted by Dr. Goldberg and Dr. Tener with a combined 46 years of experience in developing, interpreting and applying both standard and functional lab results.
Having identified the causal factors in each case, an individualized program is developed to reverse the person’s chronic disease patterns and Re-Create™ their health. Unlike other practices where symptoms are suppressed or covered up, Bio-Hygiene™ involves breaking down old tissues and replacing them with new healthier tissues.
In addition to the Interview, Physical Examination and Laboratory Studies, Bio-Hygiene™ and Re-Creation™ investigate and address the following:
- Digestive Disturbances/Weaknesses
- Hormonal Imbalances/Weaknesses
- Toxicity Issues
- Lifestyle Issues/Stress Related Issues Contributing to Disease
- Nutritional Issues/Imbalances
- Drug Related Issues
- Imbalances in Circadian Rhythms
- Immune/Allergy Related Issues
- Bio-mechanical Related Issues/Imbalances
- Dysbiosis/Microbial Issues and Imbalances
In the remediation of the patient’s issues, an individualized, progressive program is developed to address the specific causal factors discovered. These include the following:
- Specific Nutritional Rehabilitation Measures
- Supervised liquid diets or short periods of fasting to aid the catabolic process.
- Individualized Anabolic Regiments
- Exercise Reform specific to patient needs
- Individually based supplements as indicated by laboratory evaluation
- Environmental Protocols including the exclusion of health damaging habits
- Bio-mechanical Analysis and Corrective Care
- Counseling & addressing emotional stress patterns
- Digestive Rehabilitation
- General Hygienic Reform to support the Re-Creation™ Process
Reversing chronic disease conditions requires addressing causal factors, not “treating” the disease. The Goldberg Clinic slogan, Causes Identified...Causes Addressed...Health Restored™ is central to our practice and to our journey together in helping you reverse your chronic illness and in recovering your health and vitality.

A Different Kind of Clinic:
"An Alternative To Medicine But Not Alternative Medicine"
The Goldberg Clinic has been helping people through natural, hygienic, biological methods for over thirty five years. We are not a medical clinic nor are we simply another "alternative type clinic" with a variety of "natural remedies." The Goldberg Clinic strives for clinical excellence. Here both the patient and the doctor roll up their sleeves and do the hard work needed to obtain the excellent results patients deserve.
Compassion - We know the frustration of being ill. The uncertainty of not knowing if you will be well again. The Goldberg Clinic carefully analyzes your predispositions, weaknesses, strengths, and individual biochemical traits and as a partner in the healing process, we will help put your health back into your own hands.
