Essentials of Healthy Living
Radio Show

Dana Laake and her special guest Dr. Decker Weiss will discuss two kinds of inflammation – loud or painful and obvious, and silent inflammation that can cause cancer and heart disease.

Dr. Decker Weiss, NMD, FASA, is the first naturopathic physician to complete a conventional internship, residency, and fellowship in a conventional medical system. He trained in the Columbia Hospital system, the Arizona Heart Hospital, and the prestigious Arizona Heart Institute. Dr. Weiss has a holistic approach to cardiovascular disease management and is a pioneer in the application of effective natural alternatives to heart bypass and angioplasty. He is also knowledgeable about natural treatments for autoimmune disease, gastrointestinal issues, weight loss, and most forms of chronic disease. Dr. Weiss has traveled worldwide training physicians and pharmacists on safer ways to use fewer prescriptions and provide improved outcomes to their patients, and is currently is a consultant for Solgar.
