It is with a heavy heart that I bring you the sad news of the death of self-described holistic doctor, author, speaker, radio show host, James Winer, of Pittsburgh Pennsylvania (just minutes from where I used to live).
He was not just a legend in Pennsylvania, but far beyond, and known throughout the world as his friend says below in the video. I’ve had patients write me from college age to the elderly (maybe more than any other death). He was loved by all.
Initially, Dr James Winer’s office staff would not say publicly how or where he died, at least not that we could see. They stated they didn’t want people calling the office asking questions, and, understandably, they’d update folks later.
But then our story came out 11 hours after their announcement (I wanted to give some time) and other sites followed suit.
Within hours of our story, I’m told the staff was inundated with so many more inquiries that they had to respond: Dr Winerhad died of cardiac arrest, in Florida.
He was visiting the sunshine state, a place where we’ve already lost so many holistic doctors in recent months.
I have talked to someone I am 99% sure is a relative and they explain Dr Winer was found on a sidewalk. He didn’t have an ID on him at the time. So he was brought in as a John Doe and they say he had a heart attack. He was missing for days alive, but they didn’t know where. It appears he never regained consciousness, but local relatives were able to get there before he died and hold his hand when he passed just days ago.
They said that the medical examiner said there was no need for an autopsy.…
