In 1989 his film career, and his life, were challenged when he was diagnosed with cancer. Through the use of conventional and complementary medicines, Dr. Weizer was able to reclaim his health.
The success of this approach led Dr. Weizer to reconsider his career in the film industry, and focus on helping others by studying naturopathic medicine.
He graduated from National College of Naturopathic Medicine in 1999. Because of his personal history, Dr. Weizer has a strong dedication to serve people with serious and life-challenging illness.
Dr. Weizer believes that knowledge and hope are fundamental to the recovery process. To educate his patients and the general community, Dr. Weizer conducts numerous workshops on Naturopathic medicine, and speaks at local cancer support groups.
