Allen Goldman N.D. has been a leading innovator in the field of mind, body, and spiritual development for over 30 years.
His passion to expand the boundaries of human achievement has led him on a diverse educational path from the northeastern universities like the Harvard School of Public Health out to the west coast schools to explore a wide range of natural health methods resulting in doctoral certifications in natural medicine, naturopathy, and clinical hypnotherapy. He specializes in hypnosis and life coaching, while emphasizing the value of self-improvement methods such as nutraceuticals, herbal medicine, hydrotherapy, and exercise for improved health.
A pioneer in the promotion of natural health methods and complementary medicine, he was the convention manager for the National Health Federation, the nation's leading health freedom of choice organization. The NHF was responsible for the passage of legislation that allows consumers the right to purchase nutritional supplements without a prescription. This legislation led the way to the booming alternative medicine trend, currently a multi-billion dollar industry.
In 1982, Allen originated one of the most successful mind/body/spirit consumer shows in the world, the Whole Life Expo. This extremely popular world's fair of health and better living attracted tens of thousands of participants throughout the United States.
In 2001 he formed Silva West, the San Francisco Bay Area branch of the Silva Method. What he loves about being a Silva Instructor is the opportunity to share Jose Silva's great philosophy. Goldman attributes much of his success to the daily application of the Method's very practical tools; and as a Silva Method certified instructor and coach, he has guided thousands of people to attain physical, mental, spiritual and emotional well-being.
