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 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, proteomics 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 has used this matrix of systems biology 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.
In association with Humana Medical Plans, as an affiliated provider, Dr. Blyweiss also served as member of, and subsequent chairman of, the Quality Assurance Committee and Physician Credentialing Committee from 1985 – 1990. He is adjunct faculty at University of Miami Miller School of Medicine Center for integrative medicine helping to train both future and practicing physicians in “ functional medicine”. He is both a local authority and national speaker on functional medicine.
Dr. Blyweiss was one of the 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 vaccinating children in the island nation of Grenada. He was a team member of the physician relief program in Kendall, Florida after Hurricane in 1994.
He has traveled the world, most recently to Gabon and Croatia working closely with teams of specialists to identify new plant life and natural products for possible human benefit. He has consulted for and created state-of-the -art nutritional supplements for multiple nutritional companies since 1999. His most recent accomplishment was forming Eden Laboratories Ltd. doing stem cell research in Belize, CA. He is currently in private practice in South Florida where he resides with his family.

"Cell Science Systems (CSS) has been a valued partner for me in my clinical practice by supplying innovative diagnostic tests for the integrative, functional and nutritional medicine practitioner. The ALCAT Test, developed by CSS, has constantly helped me in the management of chronic cases where other investigations have reached a dead end. Their new salivary hormone offerings as well as the Gut Heath Profile (GHP) which provides the triad of genetic, antibody and cellular information pertaining to celiac disease and gluten sensitivity detection, will enhance the value of the laboratory to my practice in the coming years. Thank you CSS, and more importantly, thank you from my patients."

"Having a healthy gut is key to good health. We are not what we eat but rather what we absorb, and if we want to “let food be our medicine” then a good gastrointestinal tract function is crucial. I have found out that with the elimination of food sensitivities through a good implementation of the ALCAT test results, I am able to obtain better and more dramatic results than with the use of Prebiotics, Probiotics, digestive enzymes and immune support for the GI tract. I have been able to help patients with many symptoms ranging from skin allergies to indigestion, energy deficits or frequent infections. Patients frequently report an immediate weight loss following the application of the test results. Understanding and observing the effect of food sensitivity elimination in my clinical practice has changed the way I practice medicine completely"
