Dr. Ron Weiss
Dr. Ron Weiss is a physician and farmer. He is founder of Ethos Health, a farm-based healthcare system that connects human health to the natural world and promotes mindful, healthy ways of living. At the center of this system is Ethos Farm, a 280-year-old working farm in Long Valley, NJ, which grows produce using regenerative methods. These “living medicines” are used as part of an evidence-based diet of whole plant foods to reverse and prevent chronic disease. Dr. Weiss is a diplomat of both the American Board of Internal Medicine and the American Board of Lifestyle Medicine. He is also Assistant Professor of Clinical Medicine at Rutgers New Jersey Medical School. On most days, if he’s not planting, you can find him practicing and teaching lifestyle medicine in an old wooden farmhouse right in the middle of the growing fields.
