321 – Peace Possible and the Food Movement

How a natural cardiologist is changing the lives of at risk children around the world.

Diagnosing, Treating, and Reversing  PTSD and Radicalization at the Source

This interview is just slightly off our normal target. My interview is with Dr. Decker Weiss. I have known of and have interviewed Dr. Weiss years ago when I was host of Health Quest Radio Show. Dr. Weiss is one of the world’s first natural cardiologists. He is the author of The Weiss Method – A Natural Program for Reversing Heart Disease and Preventing Heart Attacks. CLICK HERE to listen to my previous interview with Dr. Weiss entitled Nutrition for Cardiac Health.

In the first part of this interview we discuss his history and evolution as a naturally oriented cardiologist. Dr. Weiss’ understanding of the role and benefits of lifestyle and nutrition can help us all be healthier. The second part of his interview is about his mission work called Peace Possible. His work is recognized by others and this interview is being sponsored by Rob Seeman and The Food Movement. It is Rob’s passion to end world hunger and he has recognized that Dr. Weiss has a powerful approach that can actually change lives.

Dr. Weiss has taken the road less traveled when it comes to aiding poor and impoverished children around the world. He started by asking the question “What causes youth to become radicalized and fall prey to the terrorists groups to which they become aligned?” This is a very profound question and the answer is just as profound.

Dr. Weiss has set up numerous operations around the globe which focus on providing what these communities need in order to reverse the trend to radicalization. Ultimately the solution involves creating environments where people have opportunity to live healthy and productive lives. Proper and targeted nutrition can make a huge difference. It is impossible to gain an education and become a productive adult when day to day circumstances make life dangerous. Lack of the essential factors of life make it nearly impossible not to be adversely affected.

Dr. Weiss has defined four critical areas that must be addressed to change this cycle:

  • Medical Care: Peace Possible™ has diagnosed and treated refugees in Iraq, and Jordan (Syrians), orphans in Viet Nam and Senegal, as well as human beings stuck in cycles of poverty and violence in the Dominican Republic. All of this occurred within our first 2 years of existence. The next steps include adding a clinic in Thailand, and creating semi-permanent clinics in some of the of the least medically served areas in the world
  • Research and Development: Why do people become violent? How do children become radicalized? Peace Possible™ has performed the first research in the world on neurotransmitter patterns and radicalization. The results may give way to the first diagnostic test for risk of radicalization, as well as a potential treatment model.
  • Functional Medicine in the Field: Peace Possible™ is the first to provide probiotics to every child and patient prescribed antibiotics, amino acid and natural anti-inflammatory therapies to resolve PTSD, focus issues, mood, insomnia and fatigue issues, and more. Functional (Naturopathic) medicine may be the key to keeping a young lady from returning to life as a sex worker, or a young man or women from joining ISIS.
  • Education: Last year, Dr. Weiss presented the first research of its kind linking neurotransmitter chemistry to radicalization at the CRIC School of Oxford. Currently over a dozen medical schools and organizations are asking for education. Soon, the information gleaned will have to potential to be applied around the world. 
  • New Frontiers: Peace Possible™ has been asked to look into medical models which overcome infections without creating antibiotic resistance. Right now, people world-wide are dying from infections because the antibiotics no longer work. Currently (1) child dies every (9) minutes from a resistant infection.

Dr. Weiss  was a 20 year practicing cardiologist who decided to take a turn and join a think tank/research group called Artis Research, three years ago. In his medical career, Dr. Weiss became an expert in diagnostic (lab) markers involving inflammation via the central nervous system (lecturing on it at Cleveland Heart), when he realized that there was an application to his work in PTSD, and potentially radicalization.  With the Artis team, Dr. Weiss launched a research study on Syrian refugees and Israeli’s and Gaza’s (Palestinians) , looking at the very first predictive lab markers for radicalization. The research was simply break-through, and was presented to world-leaders in the field at the CRIC (College for the Resolution of Intractable Conflict) School of Oxford University.  Dr. Weiss has now spun Peace Possible™ out of Artis Research to focus on advancing refugee care, as well as applying the research in the field to diagnose, prevent, treat, and reverse radicalization.

The Food Movement Co. is founded on the belief that the human body has an innate ability to heal itself given the proper nourishment. We believe in not just healing with whole foods, but also in supplementing our diets with specific nutrients that may be missing.  We feel this approach is crucial to our survival as a people and a planet. This involves raw materials in their purest forms, formulations which correspond to the systems of the body, and an overarching philosophy that respects the wisdom of nature.

The Food Movement Co. has a commitment to give 11% of our profits to help global hunger relief efforts, and to synergistically raise awareness of these efforts. At The Food Movement Co. we believe sustainability in human society and in the environment are indelibly intertwined. We believe that in order to feed ourselves, we must begin to embrace the stewardship of the planet, and of other people, that our ancestors recognized as crucial to our growth and survival.
