Hygieia is part of the Goldberg Tener Clinic for Chronic Disease Reversal and you can start your journey back to health at either location.

Accelerated All Inclusive Ten Week Program at Hygieia:

As an option for those seeking an accelerated head start in an all inclusive form in their pursuit of renewed vitality, we offer, once each season, a ten week program package that begins with spending a half day with Drs. Goldberg and Tener at Hygieia. You will undergo an extensive, detailed interview with ample time allotted for the doctors to explore your background, followed by a physical examination, bio-mechanical examination and a biochemical/nutritional evaluation. Appropriate functional and standard laboratory studies will be recommended to fit your needs. Dr. Goldberg was a consultant for two major laboratories in developing educational protocols for functional tests, which help uncover factors responsible for your disease genesis. Evaluations include dietary analysis, functional digestive evaluation of major nutrient components, inflammatory markers, blood sugar and free radical analysis, food and environmental allergy assessment, toxicology studies and other studies pertinent to your needs. In light of Dr. Goldberg’s many years of practice experience and teaching these procedures to health care students and practitioners you are assured of professional interpretation and application of the results.

Your morning or afternoon at Hygieia will be followed by a Discovery Period of two to three weeks to allow data collection and for a personalized health strategy to be formulated. An initial plan will be presented to you at the Report of Findings given either at the Goldberg Tener Clinic or at Hygieia or over the phone or by Skype, at your discretion. An additional eight-week period of working with the doctors through office visits or Internet Communication (for long distance patients) will follow. At the end of this time you will return either to the Goldberg Tener Clinic in Tyrone or Hygieia in Brooks for a re-evaluation.

We focus on addressing the causes of your health issues, on body and mind renewal and on acquiring the information needed to make a detailed assessment.

This is not a cookie cutter clinic or a place for treatments that address symptoms…this is an in depth evaluation to develop a road map in guiding you back to good health and recreating your body to the fullest extent possible. Bio-Hygiene emphasizes the identification and addressing of causal factors along with appropriate employment of rest, sleep, diet, detoxification, sunlight, mental poise, stress reduction and other hygienic measures to encourage the development of a healthier, well balanced metabolism and renewal of the patient’s cellular components.

What Hygieia is:

An educational and Bio-Hygiene facility located in a natural setting where individualized health programs to reverse chronic disease are developed in a tranquil environment.

What Hygieia is not:

We are not a hospital or medical clinic. We do not offer any form of medical treatments nor are we an “alternative” health center with a hodge-podge of pills and potions. Our services are based upon Dr. Goldberg’s long experience as a Practitioner, Professor and as one who suffered from chronic disease and recovered from it.

1) All clients must be at least 21 years of age or have a legal guardian accompany them.

2) Reversing Chronic Disease Conditions requires hard work and discipline for both the doctors and the client. We do not “treat” disease. We work to re-create bodies and return those with chronic disease conditions back to good health.

Hygieia is an educational institution, not a Medical facility. Services provided are not intended to prevent, diagnose, treat or cure any disease. Health needs are a very individualized matter and making alterations in a haphazard fashion can be dangerous to your health.

Changes in your drug medications or therapies should not be made without the approval and supervision of a licensed Medical Physician in whom you have confidence.
