Dr. BlyweissDr. David J. Blyweiss

Dr. Blyweiss began his medical career as a clinical pharmacist in South Florida prior to earning his medical degree from St. George’s University School of Medicine in 1982.

This dual background allowed him to both appreciate the relevance of conventional pharmaceutical/surgical based treatments in acute medical conditions, but also to recognize where these approaches fell short in treating the majority of patients who suffered from the chronic degenerative diseases of “western civilization origin.”

Over the last twenty years, with the nutritional medical knowledge base expanding in the fields of nutrigenomics, protemics, and other related “orthomolecular” disciplines directed towards patients’ biochemical individuality, Dr. Blyweiss became an early adherent and experienced practitioner of what would become known as “functional medicine.” Dr. Blyweiss was in the first group of practitioners to be certified as a Functional Medicine physician by the Institute of Functional Medicine and has been a member for over a decade. This knowledge allows him 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.

Dr. Blyweiss was one of the initial researchers doing the early work on chlorhexidine (Phisohex) while earning his first post graduate degree at Temple University School of Pharmacy. During medical school he worked with the WHO (World Health Organization) in the islands of the Carribbean. He has traveled much of the world, most recently to Belize, Central America, Gabon, Africa, and Zagreb, Croatia working closely with teams of specialists to identify new plant life and natural products for possible human benefit as well as researchers and their stem cell transplantation teams. He has consulted for and created state-of-the-art nutritional supplements for multiple nutritional companies since 1999. He is currently in private practice in South Florida where he resides with his family.
