The term “Autoimmune” indicates that a patient’s immune system is attacking their own tissues resulting in an ongoing injurious process. When I was studying at the University of Texas Medical Center there were about forty different medical classifications of autoimmune diseases. Today, that number is in excess of 150 as each time a new area of the body is affected by an “autoimmune” process another autoimmune disease is named.
The medical treatment of autoimmune disorders involves the suppression of symptoms through pharmaceuticals. There are different categories of drugs employed for this including Corticosteroids, NSAIDS, Folic Acid Antagonists, and the most commonly employed by Medical Physicians the so called “Biologicals”. All of these carry a heavy penalty of serious side effects and none of them address causal factors (see articles “Problems with Prednisone” and “The Dangers of Biological Drugs”).
If indeed the body attacks its own tissues, we must ask the question why this is occurring and why autoimmune disorders (and allergic disorders which we contend are often intimately related) are much more common now than they were even thirty or forty years ago. Why are they so common in the Western World and relatively rare in Africa and Asia? What are the etiological factors behind them that have now led to tens of millions of Americans being diagnosed with one or more of these issues which are disabling, life changing and even life threatening? These are serious questions largely ignored by the Medical Profession.
The approach of “alternative and so called “functional” medical professionals is similar (see “The Facade of Functional / Alternative / Integrative Medicine”). Here too drugs are often employed and in addition a host of so called “natural pills and potions” are added. Patients often arrive at our clinic with advanced autoimmune diseases after pursuing not only medical care but also numerous alternative programs and plans for “autoimmune disease” including diet books and supplement programs for autoimmune disease all to no avail. They have missed the mark, for there are reasons autoimmune disorders develop in each person and it is those specific reasons in each case that must be identified and addressed if the patient is to have the opportunity to return to health.
The body does not simply start attacking itself. If the immune system is found to be overactive there are reasons for that occurring. Rather than suppress the body’s attempt to heal itself with drugs, we must look at each person carefully and identify what is occurring in each case to cause the body to react in such a fashion. Rather than simply suppress the effect of whatever is causing the body to rev up its immune system we must do the appropriate detective work to identify all the factors that have led to the body marshaling its force. Having identified those factors and removing them, the body no longer needs to go on high alert, the immune system can quiet down and health can emerge once again.
For over forty-five years we have successfully helped patients reverse their Rheumatoid Arthritis, Psoriatic Arthritis, Psoriasis, Ankylosing Spondylitis, Multiple Sclerosis, Polymyalgia Rheumatica, Connective Tissue Disease or other autoimmune diagnoses. The positive outcomes attained are not from any specific treatment but rather are the outcome of creating an individualized program for each person based on developing an in depth understanding of causal factors that have contributed to their loss of health. Every person is different but in all patients a thorough history and physical examination and a detailed look at their nutritional biochemistry, hygienic factors, toxic exposures, allergic components, gastrointestinal efficiency and specific life stressors are all important variables to dissect out in addressing the genesis of the patient’s autoimmune issues. Our goal is to never to suppress immune function or other symptoms but rather to create the right conditions to bring the immune system response along with other systems of the body back into balance. We call our approach the Goldberg Bio-Hygienic Re-Creation System™.
The Goldberg Bio-Hygienic Re-Creation System™ is a logical, individualized way to restore the health of patients with Autoimmune Disorders and other chronic diseases. Our unique approach based in both nature and science, focuses on reversing chronic disease conditions by addressing causal factors and creating the optimal conditions for the individual to be Re-Created™ to the fullest extent of their potential. “Treatments”, as commonly utilized, standard or alternative, are not employed. Our task is to re-build the patient’s cellular structure to facilitate positive changes in their biochemistry so health may evolve and disease dissipate.
For over four decades patients have come to the Goldberg Tener Clinic to begin their journey in reversing Autoimmune Disease and attaining reliable health.
You are invited to review over fifty patient video interviews along with photos of our patients (see below) who successfully reversed their autoimmune diseases and recovered their health through the Goldberg Bio-Hygienic Re-Creation System™.
