Burton Goldberg


Burton Goldberg is known as the “Voice of Alternative Medicine,” Burton Goldberg is a self-made businessman and an internationally recognized expert in the field of alternative medicine. Having spent more than 30 years carefully researching every aspect of holistic and integrative medicine, and visiting leading health clinics throughout the United States, as well as Europe, Israel, Mexico, and Russia, he has for more than a decade been in the forefront of the movement to educate and empower the public to take control of their health—to become aware of safe and effective treatment methods that are often overshadowed by the medical establishment’s emphasis of drug-based symptom care.

Empowered by his awareness that “You don’t have to be sick,” Goldberg is on a mission to reform conventional medicine and to help people reclaim their health. Living proof of the effectiveness of the healing methods he promotes, Goldberg is described by those who know him as an energetic dynamo who, 81 years young, is often taken for a man in his early 60s. He continues to travel, lecturing and teaching audiences across the U.S. and Canada about the many health benefits afforded by alternative medicine. He is also a frequent and popular guest on many leading television and radio shows.

What put Goldberg on the fast track to national prominence was the publication of his best-selling Alternative Medicine: The Definitive Guide. With over 750,000 copies sold at $60.00 each, this 1,250 page reference work on how to treat 200 health conditions with alternative medicine has been hailed as “the bible of alternative medicine.” The new completely revised edition was published by Ten Speed Press of Berkeley, CA in June 2002.
Burton Goldberg is passionate about alternative and integrative medicine. He is committed to helping forge profound, positive changes in health care and medical awareness. To further this pursuit, he has published a series of 18 books that provide in-depth, definitive information about our nation’s most serious health conditions. Each book in this series includes years of research from leading-edge experts around the world. The books include the latest in clinical research and dozens of real-life patient success stories. More than 1,250,000 books have been sold; all 18 books have 5-star ratings with Amazon.

This series includes the landmark publication, An Alternative Medicine Definitive Guide to Cancer, in which 37 top alternative medicine physicians explain their proven, safe, non-toxic, and successful treatments for reversing cancer today. Over 100,000 copies of this book have been sold.

Burton Goldberg also founded and successfully launched Alternative Medicine magazine, which today ranks as the number one alternative health publication in terms of newsstand sales. In recognition of his expertise in the field of alternative and integrative medicine, in June, 2000 Burton Goldberg was invited to testify before Congress of the United States House of Representatives’ Committee on Government Reform during the Committee’s hearing on “Integrative Oncology–Cancer Care for the New Millennium.”

Today, Burton Goldberg continues to broaden his outreach to the public as a filmmaker and producer, and as a health consultant specializing in the field of integrative cancer care. Since 2004, he has produced four critically acclaimed feature-length DVDs:

Cancer Conquest, The Best of Conventional and Alternative Medicine, considered a must view for physicians, cancer workers, and cancer patients.

Curing Depression, Anxiety and Panic Disorder, an expose of the medical causes of depression and new alternative treatments. Ethical Stem Cells Now, takes you on a tour of stem cell clinics and treatment centers that are achieving great success utilizing ethical stem cell therapies to heal many “incurable” healthcare concerns and his most recent DVD released in 2009: Addiction, Getting the Monkey off your Back.

Currently, he is filming a feature-length documentary exploring the interrelationships between our nation’s growing health crisis, the poisoning of our environment, and the stranglehold of the pharmaceutical industry and the conventional medical establishment on our health care choices. He also oversees his popular health destination website www.burtongoldberg.com.

In recognition of Burton’s commitment and numerous contributions to the field of alternative and integrative medicine, he was awarded an honorary Doctor of Humanities degree by Capital University of Integrated Medicine, in Washington, DC.

Last year, Arizona Homeopathic and Integrative Medical Association (AHIMA) presented Burton Goldberg a Lifetime Achievement Award in Alternative and Integrative Medicine at the 2009 AHIMA Annual Dinner.
