Ep. 81 Dr. Doug Pucci talks Functional Medicine

April 21, 2021

Dr. Doug Pucci graduated from New York Chiropractic College, Long Island, NY, in 1987. His inspiration to be hands-on with patients and chart his own course as a clinician led him to open in private practice in 1990, in Oradell, NJ, where he still devotes himself to caring for patients using holistic, drug-free treatments. In his thirty years, he has become acutely aware of the limitations our current medical system has in treating chronic diseases using “conventional” methodology. In response to this, Dr. Doug Pucci began studying functional disciplines of medicine and neuro-endocrine-immunology together with testing technologies and nutraceutical supplements that are known to reverse disease.

The root of his treatment philosophy is about asking relevant questions and discovering why systems are imbalanced. In addition to clinical observation and proper testing, Dr. Pucci also strives to educate patients by spending sufficient time with them explaining the results of their tests, while also supporting them in a broader lifestyle context.

On today’s podcast Nicolette and Dr. Pucci discuss Covid, the health care system, chronic diseases, testing, sleep and more. Dr. Pucci is skilled at making the science relevant and relatable when he describes the nature of disease and the ways to reverse disease. When he works with his patients, he takes into consideration the entire body: the brain, central nervous system, spine, organs and glands, immune and endocrine systems and the nutritional chemistry for total healing. You’ll also better understand the role of inflammation in the body, the connection between the gut and the brain, and how 80% of your immune system is actually in your gut ultimately driving your immune system. Dr. Pucci also has a mini course that will take you deeper into the science of healing so that you, too, can achieve optimal health.
