Case Study: Severe Asthma, Allergies triggered by Flu Vaccine

John came to the Goldberg Clinic in 2017 suffering from severe Asthma and Allergies that were triggered by a flu vaccine he received in 2003. Between 2003 and 2016, he saw over twenty Medical Doctors and received numerous drugs and treatments including Prednisone, Singulair, Advair, Albuterol, rescue inhalers, nebulizers, ant-acids and a slew of supplements and alternative remedies (see picture below of John's previous treatments). John's condition worsened over time. Since coming to the Goldberg Clinic in 2017, John's health and function have improved tremendously. He no longer needs a rescue inhaler or the nebulizer which he had previously used three times a day. John's overall dependency on pharmaceuticals has reduced by over 80%. Watch the video interview with John to the right and see his before/after lab below. 


Additional Comments: 

John's case is a classic example of how adverse effects from medical treatments lead to a cascade of additional medical and alternative medical treatments causing further decline in health. Since receiving the flu vaccine in 2003, John consulted with over twenty Physicians including Allergists and other specialists which led to the prescription of more drugs and treatments to counteract the side effects of previous medical treatments (see picture to the right). This left John, like most victims of medical mismanagement, extremely frustrated. Improving John's health was not a matter of more "treatments" but rather taking specific nutritional and Bio-Hygienic steps to build his health, vitality and resistance.  

Before/After Lab

hsCRP is a marker of systemic inflammation commonly elevated in patients with allergies and autoimmune disorders. A normal, healthy HsCRP reading is less than 3.0. John's HsCRP was 6.1 indicating a high level of inflammation. It is now 1.6 which is well within the normal, healthy range. 

Interview with Clint Paddison: Rheumatoid Arthritis

Clint Paddison is a remarkable individual who recovered from Rheumatoid Arthritis and now offers counseling to help others obtain improvements in their R.A. as well. Clint achieved exposure from being a recent TED Talk Speaker. He contacted The Goldberg Clinic requesting an interview with us for his Podcast. Watch the two part interview with Clint Paddison in the videos below.

Part I

  • Dr. Goldberg's personal battle with Rheumatoid Arthritis.
  • The history of the Goldberg Clinic.
  • Patient evaluation.
  • The need for an individualized program in each case.
  • Emotional/stress related factors in Rheumatoid Disorders.
  • Confusion regarding Diet vs. Nutrition.
  • The role of environmental factors.

Type I Diabetes, Hypothyroid, Hypertension, Overweight, Arthritis

Bonnie was diagnosed medically with Type I Diabetes, Hypothyroidism, Hypertension, Irritable Bowel Syndrome, Drug Induced Liver and Kidney Injury and Arthritis. At her initial visit, she was taking a dozen prescription drugs including Atenolol, Amliodipine, Synthroid, Nexium, Benadryl, Limotil, Ventolin and drugs for diabetes including insulin which she had been on for thirteen years. Ten months later, Bonnie is drug free including being off Insulin and Synthroid which she had been told by her Medical Doctors she would need for life. In the process of getting healthy, she lost over 70 pounds and her blood pressure is normal (off drugs).  Bonnie's case is one of the most remarkable recoveries from chronic illness we have seen over the past 40 years. See the interview with Bonnie to the left and her before and after blood work below.

Before and After Lab Results

A Hepatic (liver) Panel is a group of tests that are performed together to detect, evaluate, and monitor liver disease or damage. Bonnie's liver enzymes were severely elevated initially. She had been diagnosed medically with prescription drug induced liver damage. She is now off drugs and her liver enzymes are normal.

HsCRP is a marker of systemic inflammation and cardiovascular disease risk. A normal, healthy HsCRP reading is less than 3.0. Bonnie's initial result was significantly elevated at 6.5 (on drugs). Her current level is 2.2 (off drugs) which is within the normal range.

Hemoglobin A1C is a blood test used to determine blood sugar control in people with diabetes. Bonnie's Hemoglobin A1C was elevated at 7.1 (on insulin). Her Hemoglobin A1C has improved to 6.2 (off insulin). Also of note (see below), is that her blood insulin level (off insulin) is normal. This is after having taken insulin for thirteen years.

Reversing Eosinophilic Esophagitis: Alex's Story

Case Study: Rheumatoid Arthritis

Rebecca suffered with severe joint and muscle pain in her hips, knees and shoulders. Her symptoms made it very difficult to walk. She saw a Medical Physician who recommended muscle relaxers and a course of steroids (Prednisone). Rebecca declined.

Rebecca worked with the Goldberg Clinic to address causal factors and rebuild her health. She is pain free, drug free and in excellent health. She's back to doing yoga, hiking and enjoying her life. 

Rebecca's before/after Sedimentation Rate (a blood marker of inflammation) is shown below. It was very high initially at 63. Her most recent result is 7 which is well within the normal, healthy range.
