Reversing Rheumatoid Arthritis: Another Success Story!

Tom traveled to the Goldberg Clinic from Illinois having been diagnosed with Rheumatoid Arthritis by a Medical Rheumatologist. He received numerous medical treatments including Prednisone, Plaquenil, Methotrexate and Sulphasalazine while predictably his condition continued to worsen. He experienced multiple side effects from the drugs he was prescribed (see article “Problems with Prednisone).

Tom endured numerous ups and downs in the course of recovering his health including periods of significant drug withdrawal (prednisone in particular). He exhibited patience and persistence in the two year period he worked with us at the Goldberg Clinic. Tom possessed what we refer to as “The Will to Get Well” which contributed to his success.

Tom reports 75- 80% improvement in his condition. He is now drug free. His HsCRP (an important inflammatory marker) normalized after having been significantly elevated initially (see before/after lab below). Tom’s recovery was accomplished without the use of “treatments”, drugs, potions or therapies but rather through the implementation of a highly individualized, monitored, Bio-Hygienic/Nutritional Program.

Before and After HsCRP: A marker of systemic inflammation commonly used to measure disease activity in patients with Rheumatoid Disorders and other inflammatory, autoimmune conditions. Tom’s HsCRP (high sensitivity C-Reactive Protein) was significantly elevated at 11.4 initially. Normal is less than 3.0. Nearly one year later, his HsCRP is very low (excellent) at 0.3 (without drugs) indicating, along with the absence of symptoms and improved energy and vitality, the successful reversal of Tom’s condition.

Reversing Hypothyroid

Hypothyroid | October 2018

Caitlin was diagnosed by her Endocrinologist with Hypothyroidism based on blood work that showed a very high TSH level and a low T4 level (see lab work below). The Endocrinologist prescribed Synthroid (Thyroid Hormone Replacement) but Caitlin declined to take it (see Dr. Goldberg's article regarding the dangers of Synthroid and other thyroid replacements). She instead sought assistance at our clinic to seek out and address the causes of her problems as opposed to taking drugs.

After four months of care at the Goldberg Clinic, Caitlin’s Thyroid Lab work is normal (see below). She is drug free. Her energy has significantly improved. She lost twelve pounds. She reports feeling great.

Nutrition from a Bio-Hygienic Perspective

Man is not what he eats. Health largely represents how efficiently you are able to transform what you eat into body tissues.

Most people relate the term nutrition only to the food we consume or what is called the diet. The process of nutrition, however, is much more encompassing. Nutrition involves all the steps involved in transforming food materials into living tissues.

Nutrition is the process by which living organisms develop, grow, repair, and maintain themselves, by which wounds and broken, bones are healed and by which reproduction is accomplished. Nutrition involves all the steps in the process of transforming food into cell substance and maintaining it. It is a process that involves every part of the body including the gastrointestinal tract, the nervous system, the endocrine system, the immune system, the cardiovascular system, etc. and needs to be appreciated in all the health sciences yet is widely misunderstood or ignored.

Nutrition is NOT just about diet!

Virtually all patients have nutrition related issues. Not all patients, however, have diet problems. Many have issues with the way what they eat is is processed by the body and transformed (or not transformed) into human flesh. Poor digestion, absorption, assimilation, excretion and elimination can bring about a wide variety of health issues. It is not just about diet! To understand this better please look at the following:

Steps in the Nutrition Process

Nutrition is the sum of all the processes involved in transforming food, air and water into living, animated tissues. This involves the following transformational steps:

1)         Consuming nutrients (diet).

2)         Breaking down food into water and fat-soluble molecules (digestion).

3)         Delivering nutrients into the blood and lymphatic systems (absorption).

4)         Efficiently carrying the nutrients from the blood and lymph into individual cells (assimilation).

5)         Eliminating cellular wastes from the cells (excretion).

6)         Eliminating wastes efficiently from the body (elimination).

Man is not what he eats. Your health largely represents how efficiently you are able to transform what you eat into body tissues. This is dependent not only on your diet but on many aspects of your life including:

•    Stress levels in your life

•    Hydration status

•    Sleep and rest habits

•    Overall vitality and physical vigor

•    Sun Exposure

•    Drug Usage

•    Toxic exposures and residues in your body

•    Your social relationships

•    The health of your gastrointestinal tract, your immune system and your endocrine system.

•    The microbial flora of your gastrointestinal tract

•    The inter-relationships of the above factors

Improving your nutritional status and restoring your health will involve working with your entire body…not just your diet. Following dietary instructions is important but it is only one step in helping you obtain better health.

Reversing Rheumatoid Arthritis

Stephanie traveled to the Goldberg Clinic from Edinburgh, Scotland in 2018 having been diagnosed with Rheumatoid Arthritis in 1986 by a Medical Rheumatologist. Over the past thirty two years she received numerous medical treatments including Indomethicin, Omeprazole, Prednisone, Plaquenil, Sulphasalazine and Gold Injections while her condition continued to worsen. She suffered with numerous side effects from the drugs including multiple infections, weight gain, moon face and moodiness.

In the four months that Stephanie has followed an individualized program constructed for her by the Goldberg Clinic, she now reports an 80% improvement with her joints and muscles virtually pain free. Stephanie’s inflammatory markers (CRP and Sedimentation Rate) have normalized (see before/after lab studies below). This was accomplished without the use of “treatments”, drugs, potions, pills and therapies but rather through the implementation of a highly individualized Bio-Hygienic/Nutritional Program.

This is further proof that those suffering with Rheumatoid Arthritis and other chronic health problems do indeed have the potential to recover their health with hard work, patience and the right guidance. See more Rheumatoid Arthritis Case Studies:
