Healthcare Reform in New Jersey
At Ethos, we care.
That’s why we are raising the standard of care, offering a new vision for medicine and providing genuine healthcare reform in New Jersey. As a growing body of integrative medicine doctors and holistic medicine doctors are saying publicly, true healthcare reform is not about changing the rules and regulations of health insurance policies or government policies; rather it is about effectively changing the way we eat, live, and practice medicine in our society.
For this reason, we consciously have rejected the option of working with health insurance companies, which enforce assembly-line medicine. Their vision of “health” care is in fact “sick” care. With grossly inadequate 15 minute time slots for doctors to see patients, even the most intelligent and compassionate physicians are set up for failure. In this model, the only option is to relieve symptoms, not heal illness. And so patients end up dependent on a never-ending parade of pharmaceuticals and surgeries, in many cases, going from bad to worse with a litany of side-effects – chained to the medical system for a lifetime.
We Free You from Drugs and Surgery
As part of offering healthcare reform in New Jersey, our primary care doctor, Ron Weiss, MD, listens deeply and compassionately to you, the patient, because he genuinely wants you to be well. He talks with you for however long is needed, even one or two hours, to truly understand not only your medical complaints but also your life. When he is with you in an appointment, he is fully present, focused on identifying the root of your ailment and the optimal course of action for treating you.
Dr. Weiss is an integrative medicine doctor whose focus is the reversal and prevention of illness, using unrefined whole plant foods. He is knowledgeable and skilled at both conventional medicine and alternative medicine. While he can prescribe pharmaceuticals or surgery if necessary, he focuses on getting you off prescription drugs instead of putting you on them, and he helps you avoid surgery instead of directing you to it. That’s because Dr. Weiss knows that in all but the most extreme circumstances, your body has the ability to get well on its own. He is here to guide you on making that happen.
Yes, You Can Heal
If you get a cut, your body can heal it within a matter of days. That’s how the body functions when it is in balance. Our bodies, however, have been thrown off-kilter, from the bombardment of environmental toxins and unhealthy lifestyle habits of the modern age. So the first and most critical step to healing from chronic illness is eliminating those toxins and practicing healthy lifestyle habits. When you take these steps, you give your body the opportunity to heal, without invasive medical interventions that can throw off your body further and send you spiraling downward.
And so, as part of our comprehensive healthcare reform in New Jersey, we offer primary care medicine that takes into consideration your entire life and guides you on making healthy choices across the board. We understand that transforming lifestyle habits can be challenging, which is why we additionally provide healthy living classes and lifestyle immersion programs that not only teach you how to get well but support you through every step of the process.
