(NaturalNews) Meet Dr. Ronald Weiss, MD, an internist with a successful 25-year medical practice in West New York who moonlights as an assistant professor at the Rutgers New Jersey Medical School in Newark. Weiss, a 52-year-old married father of two, sold his lucrative practice and liquidated all his assets so he could buy a 348-acre, 18th-century farm adjacent to Schooley’s Mountain, in Long Valley, New Jersey.

In June of 2014, he launched Ethos Health, a combination of community supported agriculture (CSA) and his iconoclastic food-as-medicine medical practice. The farm currently supports 90 families on a membership basis with a seasonal repertoire of fresh fruits, vegetables and herbs.

Weiss believes that plant-based “whole foods are the most powerful disease-modifying tools available to practitioners — more powerful than any drugs or surgeries.” Weiss professes, and science agrees, that inflammation is the root of many if not most chronic diseases.

  1. It’s not just the healthiness of the food produced, but the fact that you are out there growing your own, getting exercise, accomplishing something in your life, feeling like you are part of nature and her cycles and you get that incredible sense of accomplishment and achievement to go with those healthy veggies and that far surpasses the work involved to get them. Veggie growing is addictive and so are the end results🙂
