Dr. Robert Weiss is, perhaps, the evolution of modern medicine. In selling his 25 year old New Jersey medical practice, he purchased two farms where he now provides plant-based “medicine” by fixing his patients’ diets.
“Human health is directly related to the health of the environment, the production of food and how it is grown,” notes Weiss. “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.”
“I am not saying if you fall down and break your ankle, I can fix it by putting a salve of mugwort on it. You need someone to fix your fracture. I am talking about treating and preventing chronic disease — the heart attacks, the strokes, the cardiovascular disease, the cancers … the illnesses that are taking our economy and our nation down.”
By acknowledging diet is key to avoiding most chronic illnesses plaguing a society of sugar and processed food, Weiss has raised the bar of what medicine can do. His patients are healing.
Some of his coleagues are not on board with the mentality, but the proof is in the patients. Like 90-year-old Angelina Rotella of West New York, who came to his office on the night before Christmas Eve, in a wheelchair with congestive heart failure.
“I asked her, ‘Do you want me to call 911 and admit you to Palisades General? Or will you let me feed you sweet potatoes and kale?’ Amazingly enough, with the help of her daughter, she chose this,” Weiss said. “She doesn’t have diabetes anymore and chronic heart failure. She is cooking, sewing and walking around town. I’m not saying it’s easy, but she seized the opportunity and she is transformed.”
