(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.
