Dear Dr. G:
This is my testimonial to you and the improved health you helped me achieve.
Through working with Dr. Goldberg from June to September 1996, I felt better than I had in about 30 years. When I initially came to him, I was a physical wreck from years of abusing my digestive system. While I was not overweight, I was at a weight that made me physically uncomfortable. My symptoms included: irritable bowel syndrome, frequently severe abdominal pain, candidasis, mood swings, skin and tissue disorders, weakness, fatigue, muscular and joint pain. The old saying "you are what you eat" is very true, and I was a mess.
After years of spending lots of money with many doctors who said "take this prescription and it will fix you right up," who paid no attention to what I was telling them, and getting worse, Dr. Goldberg was recommended to me. What a relief! Dr. Goldberg is the only one who took a look at the big picture and ran the appropriate tests to develop a program designed specifically for my needs.
Through my own research, I knew these tests existed and needed to be run, but before Dr. G. I couldn't find a physician intelligent or dedicated enough to figure it out. Society and "traditional" doctors have programmed us to believe that we have to take pill which was prescribed by the doctor which was created by a multibillion dollar pharmaceutical firm in order to feel better. What a load of crap. Taking prescription drugs creates a need for another pill to treat the side affects of the original pill which creates another set of side affects or problems, and on and on. Hey, if they cured you they wouldn't be able to charge you additional outrageous fees?
Boy, are you in for a big surprise!! Instead of taking a pill to mask your symptoms, work with Dr. GoIdberg and you will find out how to eliminate those symptoms and take back control of your health: It's hard work and you may "fall off the wagon" a time or two, I did. You didn't get this way overnight so it stands to reason you are not going to fix it overnight, be patient. In 3 weeks I lost 12 pounds, and after 3 months the majority of my symptoms were gone with the remainder greatly diminished. In only 3 months Dr. Goldberg did what numerous doctors had not accomplished in years at, I hope you are sitting down, reasonable fees.
Alter working with Dr. G. i developed my personal philosophy which I would like to share with you. If God intended for you to eat something, he would have made it easily accessible and naturally good for you. You wouldn't have to chase it down, carve it up and cook it. And if you do, you'll suffer the consequences.
Alter moving to Ohio in September, I fooled myself into thinking it wouldn't hurt to eat whatever I wanted until I could find a replacement for Dr. Goldberg. Ohio is very conservative and the practice of clinical nutrition is not allowed, thus I was unable to find someone. The stores do not carry good fruit and veggies like they do in Georgia, and I "felloff my wagon" with a major thud. Now I am working with Dr. Goldberg long distance to regain the ground I lost.
Dr. Goldberg will tell you that good health starts in your digestive tract and then he'll back it up with results.
He is genuinely concerned about making you better, will monitor your progress, and be your support system. Listen, learn, follow his direction, and enjoy improved health. It worked for me.

A Letter of Thanks
November 1, 1993
In July 1993 I discovered I had high blood pressure.
I am 49 years of age and have suffered discomfort from menopause as well. My husband suggested I see one of his teachers, Dr. Goldberg. Careful examination and a series of tests confirmed my extreme high blood pressure accompanied by a high LDL cholesterol count.
Dr. Goldberg made recommendations based on his wealth of knowledge concerning fasting, dietary changes and nutritional supplements. He asked me if I were able to commit to a program of health care. I had to agree to follow his instructions and if I could, he felt that I would experience dramatic changes. I made the commitment because I was literally afraid of getting a stroke or even worse, dying at a relatively young age.
I am happy to announce that my blood pressure is normal, my cholesterol count is normal; I've lost about 10 lbs. And I feel terrific. Without Dr. Goldberg's advice and caring, I don't believe I would have accomplished this revitalization.
My sincere thanks to a real professional,

Dear Dr. Goldberg,
I'm writing to let you know of the great improvement in my condition of rheumatoid arthritis.
I got off all medication in mid November of 94.
I had a CBC and a Sed rate 12/5/94 and everything was just about in the normal range, and the Sed. Rate was 7 ! That's the first time things have been normal in nearly three years. I had a Sed Rate run again 1/3/95 and it was 20, but it was back up to 45 2/7/95.
I had been doing very well on my diet, but since the holidays I've been having white flour and sugar products occasionally. I still have not had any chocolate, alcohol, or caffeine.
The results of the Sed Rate tells me I must get back to a very strict diet, though, as I made such great improvement.
My fingers and wrists are still swollen and bother me a lot, but all the other swelling is practically gone. Dr. Shaffer got a wrist brace for me that has special support to improve and prevent Ulnar Deviation, and it is helping.
I've been very active and the swelling in my feet, ankles and knees is still practically gone. Since last summer I've been riding an exercise bike and lifting one pound weights. I'm up to four miles per day and lift weight about another 10 minutes. I've developed a lot of muscle; as a matter of fact, I think that's one reason I started putting on weight.
I'm also able to walk up and down stairs now, one foot right after the other (slow, but I can do it).
I've made great progress in conquering this illness, and I owe a lot of it to you, Dr. Goldberg. Thanks you for your care and guidance on good nutrition, (which enabled me to get off the damaging drugs). With patience, time and faith, the natural healing route has and will continue to pay off.
Thanks again for everything, Dr. Goldberg.

MAY 14, 1997
IN MARCH OF 1997 I CAME TO DR. PAUL GOLDBERG WITH SEVERAL PROBLEMS. PREVIOUSLY DIAGNOSED FIBROMYALGIA, LACTOSE INTOLERANCE, FOOD ALLERGIES AND INTESTINAL MALFUNCTION. SYMPTOMS INCLUDED WEIGHT GAIN, BLOAT, FATIGUE, HEADACHES AND ACHES ALL OVER.
DR. GOLDBERG'S TESTING PROVIDED BETTER INSIGHT TO THE BASE OF ALL MY ILLNESS, BY FOLLOWING HIS INSTRUCTIONS IN JUST A WEEK I WAS GREATLY IMPROVED.
HIS CONTINUED GUIDANCE THE PAST 2 MONTHS HAVE PRODUCED AMAZING RESULTS. GONE ARE ACHES, HEADACHES, BLOAT AND EXCESS WEIGHT. THOUGH ALL MY PROBLEMS AREN'T RESOLVED, I FEEL 100% BETTER. THE LAST 15 YEARS THOUSANDS OF DOLLARS WERE SPENT ON DOCTORS AND TEST WITH NEGATIVE RESULTS. THE MONEY SPENT WITH DR. GOLDBERG IS THE FIRST TO PAY OFF!
WITH DEEP APPRECIATION FOR MY RENEWED HEALTH.

August 16, 1998
Dear Dr. Goldberg:
I am grateful that I have finally received help. Before I knew that I had food allergies from your analysis and testing, I lived a miserable life.
I was tired all of the time. I woke up tired and went to bed tired. I suffered from excessive sweating and bloating. Sometimes my abdominal areas would swell up like I swallowed a basket ball. I could not concentrate on my school work. My grades were not good by my standards. My pulse was very high (88 beats per minute). I could walk up a small incline and my heart would beat out of my chest. I had to push myself hard to survive.
I got to the point where I did not know how I was going to make it. I would eat something and then feel my nerves going weak to pass right out. I fought to stay awake in the classroom. I did not feel like exercising. Before I came to Life University I did an hour of aerobics everyday, I loved to work out. I had excessive gas. My girl friend would often push me away because when she hugged me my body would be wet from sweat. I suffered from so much chronic fatigue.
This went on for many months. I tried everything and saw many people for help, including two trips to the Veterans Medical Center which yielded no results. I finally crashed as my body could take it no more. I crashed in a big, tragic way. Only after I crashed did I get the love and the help that I needed, for which I give thanks.
Now after working with Dr. Goldberg I am alive with energy and want to live again. I feel the joy of life. I can now exercise without my heart beating out of my chest. My resting pulse rate has dropped from 88 to 60 beats per minute, a 32% decrease.
When my mother was staying with me and I ate something wrong she would see me pass out and go to sleep. I would wake up hours later and feel groggy as if I had taken a sleeping pill. The foods I was allergic to, as you found out by testing and analyzing me, would do number on me.
I am so grateful for all the help I have received from you and your teaching me how to live in better health.

Dear Dr. Goldberg,
At 66, I was losing weight and had drifted down to 105 lbs. from 165 lbs. In just 2 years. No one could help me reverse this downward spiral.
Alter reading over 100 books on health and diet, I stumbled upon the work of Herbert Shelton who used fasting and diet as the key strategy for healing. I found that the Natural Hygiene Society was publishing his works and talked with their president who recommended you. He stated you had 20 years experience refining Dr. Shelton's principles. In those 20 years, it appeared to me that you now had the newest scientific knowledge, tools and techniques to bear on afflictions like mine.
You recommended a modified fasting therapy for me, a simple diet, a special multi-vitamin and a food supplement. Slowly, I began to gain weight. The downward spiral had been reversed.
Now, after 8 months, I have put on 20 lbs. Naturally, I am delighted with the results to date and the positive trend of my weight toward my goal.
When we began our work, my outlook for my life was grim. Today I feel, thanks to you, I have my life back and am enjoying the Christmas holiday season.
Patient Letter #29
October 14, 1996
Dear Dr. Goldberg:
I can't begin to thank you enough for the improvement I have seen in my health in just a short period of time. I started with your prescribed "healthy diet plan" on September 1st and within 4 days, I started to feel better. I feel I have been very lucky in that you said I would probably feel worse before feeling better. I did not go through that stage. I think some of the things I was eating made me feel so bad, (ie; sugar) cutting those things out made a difference right away. I have to admit at first the Ultra Clear wasn't the best tasting drink I've ever had, but now it's not so bad, and in fact, after I drink it I feel more satisfied and don't want something else to eat.
Let me list a few things that were a problem when first came in to see you:
Extreme fatigue, Colon problems, Heartburn, Headaches, Allergies so bad I looked as if I had been beaten by the end of the day, I took 4 allergy shots every 2 to 3 weeks, Ear infections, Fluid on the eardrum, Backache, and overweight. Because of these problems I had been to many medical doctors including: General Medicine, Allergy Specialist, Ear/Nose/Throat Specialist, and Psychiatrist. The medicine these doctors prescribed were:
Decongestants, Antihistamines, Cortisone (40 tablets the last visit), Chronic Fatigue Drugs, Depression Medication, and I took 2 Excedrins to try to get the day started and 2 late in the afternoon, trying to make it through the rest of the day.
I had been feeling so bad, that I was ready to give up. A friend at work told me about Dr. Goldberg, and as a last resort, I thought I would try one more thing. It was the best medical decision I've ever made. Through his test he found I had low blood sugar, my minerals were low, my cholesterol and triglycerides were high, I was severely allergic to eggs (which my allergy doctor had not told me), and because of all the cortisone I had taken I had the highest level of yeast in my body that I could have.
Today I feel great and have gone from taking 11 different medicines a day to 2. I have been trying to get off one of the medications for a long time because it makes you gain weight, but I could never leave it off. Thank goodness, I no longer take that drug, and I've lost 22 pounds. Of course, the foods Dr. Goldberg has me eating is the major reason for the weight loss. I 've gradually stopped taking one pill at a time, seeing what I could or could not eliminate. I plan to discontinue the other 2 pills.
On the initial visit, with all the tests that were run, I felt this is going to be expensive. The way I look at it now, is totally different. I won 't be going to a doctor every couple of weeks and going to the drugstore and picking up 5 or 6 prescriptions. Doing this on a regular basis, for many years, costs a lot of money.
I can't begin to tell anyone how much I respect Dr. Goldberg's methods of treating patients, and I am so thankful he has the knowledge of the body and it's nutritional needs.
Thank you very much,
Powder Springs GA

TO WHOM IT MAY CONCERN:
I am writing this letter to say thank-you to Dr. Goldberg for helping me feel rejuvenated.
My first encounter with Dr. Goldberg was when my daughter brought a friend home and he noticed my counter top filled with pills. He happened to be attending the School of Chiropractic in Atlanta. He started to question me about the drugs and I told him that I have arthritis and was presently taking:
Lodine an anti-inflammatory 400 mg three X daily
Methotrexate 3 weekly
Predisone 2 daily
Darvocet for pain
He then proceeded to tell me about Dr. Goldberg and gave me the telephone number. I decided that it was worth a try since I was feeling miserable all the time and could not see my future getting any better.
I went to see Dr. Goldberg in September and he informed me of his program. He told me it would not be easy for the first few weeks and he was right. I left feeling very skeptical but would try; afterall how could any program make me feel better when for the last six years I have been suffering, and doctors told me that you have to learn to live with the pain and depression of this disease.
I never went through anything so difficult and was ready to give up after the first week but kept in mind that this was my only chance to try and have. a normal life, so I kept going with the encouragement of Dr. Goldberg. As time went on, I started giving up the drugs little my little and started feeling better.
At present, I am only taking 2.5 mg of Prednisone every 2nd day and have given up all the rest and will give up this one soon.
I feel better, look better and have more energy than before. My arthritis is still there but only noticeable at times and much more tolerable.
I want to thank Dr. Goldberg and recommend any one to give his program a chance and you will come out a winner in the end.

Dear Dr. Goldberg::
Congratulations! This makes you three for three with me. My sister, Susan, and Jill all have received results in excess of their expectations.
I saw Jill today, in case you were wondering where this letter came from. She looks much better now than she did when I last saw her three months ago. She speaks very highly of you and I know is actively promoting your unique and effective services.
I have suggested to several patients since I have been here to go on down and see you. Jill was the first to take my advice, and it only took a couple of months to get her on down.
People up here in Cartersville are a little funny sometimes. When I first started practicing here I said to a patient, "See you on Wednesday." They came back with a story of how they were going to be out of town on Wednesday. I was thinking like Panama City, Detroit, Los Angles... nope, they were going to Marietta. Sometimes I think I am practicing on an island up here.
I really appreciate the way you have managed Jill's case and when next I find someone that is desperate enough to go all the way to Marietta to do something positive for themselves, they will be knocking on your door.
Thanks a BUNCH!
Patient Letter #32
RE: Treatment from Dr Paul Goldberg
I came to see Dr Goldberg in September 1995, because a friend was literally transformed before my eyes by his treatment. She had lost weight, felt great and had energy. I was overweight, had no energy, had numerous aches and pains, and felt lousy all the time. So I thought if he could help me get "energy", maybe the other things wouldn't be so hard to endure.
At last I get to write what has changed for me! I remember reading through all those letters and I wondering if anything would work for me. The testing, etc. showed a number of food allergies, the severe ones being: wheat, milk and eggs. What a shock. I had been following many "good eating" plans that included low fat milk and lots of whole grains, etc. - which only added to my distress. I started the UltraClear fast and soon saw some changes.
First, my vision got clearer and my contact lens were too strong to wear. I now have new contact lens which are not as strong as the prescription I had used for at least the last 5 years. My hand writing got neater and easier to read (Had just thought I was getting sloppy).
My hair is not as gray as it was. Had been having my hair colored for at least 10 years and now I don't even need to have colored (the little bit of gray that is there doesn't look very bad for a 54 year old that has lost weight and feels great).
My hands used to have some swelling and would break out and be sore a lot. That has stopped and I don't have to go around with band aids all over my hands. My ankles no longer stay swollen like they had since childhood. I still have some aches and pains but through some x-rays, Dr Goldberg found out that I have denigrative disk disease.
I generally feel so much better and know I will not end up in a wheel chair in another 10 years - which is what I thought would happen before I came to Dr Goldberg. I tell everyone that asks about the changes that "Dr Goldberg is a genius when it comes to nutrition".
