A Doctor Sells Practice, Buys Organic Farm to Start Treating His Patients Naturally

Quite an inspiring piece, confirming to us again that the healing powers in whole natural foods are receiving more endorsement by the day.  The testimony is adding to the list of fans who are natural food enthusiasts like us   Would  you not rather join us? Read on.
Dr. Robert Weiss spent 25+ years taking care of Hudson County residents, but now he’s venturing out into the world to become healthy: a “farmacy” that is built on the power of plant-based “food as medicine” instead of drugs or surgery. He has started the state of New Jersey’s first farm-based medical practice. Nick Meyer tells the story of Dr. Robert Weiss over at
Deaths from correctly taken prescription drugs number above 100,000 every year, which is just one of the main reasons why the popularity of natural medicine has surged lately.
But even as Americans’ attitudes about medicine have begun to change and realign with the classic Hippocrates mantra of “First, Do No Harm…” our doctors haven’t quite gotten the message.
The classic “pills, surgery and vaccines” method that most doctors utilize first and foremost hasn’t changed a whole lot, but some individual doctors have adjusted and begun putting more stock in natural methods again.
One particular doctor on the east coast has done the previously unthinkable: he’s spending less time in his New York office and more time reconnecting with the roots of what it means to be healthy.

Dr. Weiss’ New ‘Farmacy’ Takes Root
Dr. Robert Weiss has spent over 25 years taking care of Hudson County residents according to this article from the website, but now he’s exploring a whole new way to them become, and stay, healthy: a full-fledged “farmacy” built on the power of plant-based “food as medicine” rather than drugs or surgery.
Weiss has officially started the state of New Jersey’s first farm-based medical practice 55 miles away from his New York office, where he owns a 348-acre, 18th century-style farm in Long Valley.
“Plant-based whole foods are the most powerful disease-modifying tools available to practitioners — more powerful than any drugs or surgeries.” he told
Weiss was quick to point out that you can’t fix a broken ankle or other physical ailments by simply using plant tinctures, but he did say in the article that the correct plant-based medicine can fix, treat, prevent and even cure the most menacing modern diseases, even cancer.
Organic Agriculture as Medicine 
In order to make the leap, Weiss sold his practice, although he still sees patients three days a week there, in order to buy his farm.
He also launched Ethos Health ( you can like them on Facebook here), a community-supported agriculture product.
A total of 90 families have paid membership fees and volunteered to pick crops and weeds, thus far, enjoying fresh organic fruits, vegetables and herbs from Weiss’ two farmers.
“Human health is directly related to the health of the environment, the production of food and how it is grown,” said Weiss to “I see this farm as an opportunity for me to take all the biology and chemistry of plants I have studied, and link them to the human biological system.”
His peers haven’t always been on board with his ideas, he added, but Robert remains convinced that he’s doing the right thing.
And as always, the proof ultimately lies in the impact he’s had on his patients, like Angie Rotella-Suarez, whose mother’s life was essentially saved by Weiss’ food recommendations of a plant-based diet comprised of organic grains (including sweet potatoes), steamed vegetables, fruit (especially lots of blueberries), and water.
Suarez prepared the meals for her mother and after just 2 weeks she stopped taking her blood pressure medication, left her wheelchair (and 40 pounds) behind, and began doing chores around the house every day again, regaining her energy and sense of purpose in life.
Despite not receiving the full support of his peers for changing his philosophy, his patients feel differently.
Weiss is the “the best of what the medical profession has to offer,” Suarez said, and after he what he did for his mother, it’s no wonder why she would feel that way.
We are believers in healthy whole food, for it is these foods  that enables the body heal itself. We also congratulate the courage of Dr Weiss.  The testimony is not in anyway undermining the practice but to further confirm our message.  The healing powers in unprocessed natural foods are still waiting to be discovered.  Understanding their nutrients and health benefits is what we are doing, and education is our major tool, the more reason we bring articles such as this to this site.
