This is a great video from Dr. Paul Goldberg – who I continually refer my readers to – where he interviews Matt W. who heard about Dr. Goldberg from me.
Matt shares how he was on both Prednisone and Humira which ballooned his weight to 315 lbs (hard to imagine when you see him in the video!) and suffering up to 35 bowel movements per day. At the time this video was shot, Matt’s symptoms had improved 70% and he was able to go about his regular life.

Although Dr. Goldberg must see you in-person for the first visit, the rest of your treatment can be conducted via phone, email, etc. and 50% of his clients do not reside in Georgia, USA.
I think he’s fabulous and if you want a doctor to oversee and guide your treatment, I highly recommend Dr. Goldberg.
However, it’s important to keep in mind that Dr. Goldberg and Dr. Tener (his colleague) are in-depth, rigorous doctors, who are really committed to finding and healing the root causes of dis-ease. So if you work with them, you need to be prepared to do a LOT of work on your own healing journey (similar to my books!) and not expect any quick-fixes. As Dr. Goldberg says:
“We work with patients generally with long term chronic health issues. I explain to them carefully that the first 30 days are for a period that we call ‘Discovery’ i.e. to collect information. That includes keeping two to three weeks of diet diaries, doing temperature charts, and conducting laboratory tests at home.
Patients are asked to do the tests ASAP, as even after they are sent into the labs, it takes from two to four weeks to process them and get them back into our hands – these are not typical blood chemistries and CBCs, etc. that are rapid to process, but functional tests such as stool micros, adrenal stress tests, bacterial overgrowth tests, etc.
Many of our patients are on steroids (prednisone most commonly) when we first see them and in those cases some of the tests may need to be delayed until they can be weaned off the prednisone for a period of at least 30 days. In conjunction with the patient and their physician we try to assist them in this regard, but many of the patients we see are on 10, 20 or even more drugs at one time when they walk into our office.
If patients want to leave the office the same day they arrived, with a full plan in hand, then we are the wrong choice for them.
If however, they do their tests as they are instructed to without delay (some take home the test kits and put them aside rather than do their part in completing them), we are able to schedule a report of findings over the phone for them within 30 days. If some tests are delayed due to being on steroids we report on what we can anyways in 30 days and report on those tests that need to wait as soon as possible. But as you can see, we do require the patient’s assistance in order to help them in a timely manner.”
