Willner described himself as originally an "orthodox" physician who slowly transitioned to alternative medicine, particularly following his wife's 1978 struggle with cancer chemotherapy. In 1995, Willner asserted that "I am convinced you can prevent all disease with diet, lifestyle changes, sanitation."
On October 14, 1993, in a press conference at Arrecife de Lanzarote, Spain, Willner jabbed his finger with blood from Pedro Tocino, hemophilia patient who tested HIV positive after factor VIII transfusions.
Willner authored a book presenting his point of view on the relation between HIV and AIDS, titled Deadly Deception: the Proof That Sex And HIV Absolutely Do Not Cause AIDS. The book was published shortly after Willner's medical license was revoked for, among other things, treating an AIDS patient with ozone therapy.
