Dr. David Blyweiss

  • Medical Practice
  • Past Cruises

Dr. David J. Blyweiss began his medical career as a clinical pharmacist in South Florida prior to earning his medical degree. These dual backgrounds allowed him to appreciate the relevance of conventional pharmaceutical and surgical-based treatments in acute medical conditions, and also to recognize where they fall short in managing patients who suffer from the chronic degenerative diseases of a “Western civilization origin.” Dr. Blyweiss became an early adherent and experienced practitioner of what would become known as “functional medicine.” He has used this matrix of systems biology to effectively manage and alleviate the symptoms related to the most “difficult-to-treat” conditions by addressing the underlying causes, allowing the body to heal itself. He is a national and international speaker on the latest topics of interest in integrative and functional medicine. Dr. Blyweiss is the Medical Director of the Osher Center for Integrative Medicine nutrition conferences at the University of Miami, Miller School of Medicine, where he is also an adjunct faculty member.
