    Ep 82 Esther Onyoni takes being a Pharmacist to the next level by becoming a Health and Wellness coach

    Dr Esther Onyoni is a Pharmacist, diabetes health coach and a functional medicine practitioner. For 14 years she was an accessible health care provider, seeing people with diabetes get prescribed more and more medication, with wounds that would not heal, get essential medical procedures delayed until their blood sugar was under control and young people go blind. She became a diabetics health coach so that she could fill the gap and provide a plan or system, support and accountability to people falling through the cracks to help people get their numbers and conditions under control. As a result, Esther found that her clients felt more energised, reduced blood sugar, reduced stress, fewer doctor’s visits and had stronger immune systems.

    On today’s podcast Nicolette and Esther discuss the differences between their home countries in Africa and the North American health and lifestyles. North American having easy access to medication but Africa having the outside lifestyle, the downtime, the social. Esther tells us how she filled the gap she was seeing in the system, how the body can look after itself if you look after it. Esther teaches us the steps she takes with her patients and how simple it really can be, including food, stress, physical activity and sleep. People come to Esther and they get off their diabetes medication.

    Ep. 81 Dr. Doug Pucci talks Functional Medicine

    Ep. 81 Dr. Doug Pucci talks Functional Medicine

    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.

    Ep. 80 Dr Richard Jacoby, why sugar is making us sick.

    Ep. 80 Dr Richard Jacoby, why sugar is making us sick.

    Dr. Richard Jacoby, DPM has treated thousands of patients with peripheral neuropathy. Now, he shares his insights as well as the story of how he connected the dots to determine how refined processed sugar is the common denominator of many chronic diseases. In his book, Sugar Crush, he offers a unique holistic approach to understanding the exacting toll refined sugar and refined carbs take on the body. Based on his clinical work, he breaks down his highly effective methods, showing how dietary changes reducing refined sugar and wheat, coinciding with an increase of good fats, can dramatically help regenerate nerves and rehabilitate their normal function.

    Dr. Jacoby is one of the country’s leading peripheral nerve surgeons, specializing in progressive damage to the nerves that often results from diabetes. He has treated countless patients with the condition over the years and has successfully treated many patients who would have otherwise had to have an amputation.

    Today Nicolette and Dr. Jacoby talk about how refined sugar is affecting the body and making people more susceptible to illnesses, such as COVID-19. Dr. Jacoby also highlights how North American’s are eating a diet which has 90% fructose compared to primates and our ancestors who ate mainly whole-food carbs. You’ll discover that Diabetes, Alzheimer's, Carpal Tunnel Syndrome and Autism all have the same thing in common and you’ll learn all about what truly constitutes regenerative medicine and as well as the truth about stem cell therapy. Most importantly – learn first had that chronic disease is caused by diet and that the drugs we are given are simply a band aid when in fact, chronic illnesses are reversable with proper nutrition – AKA food.

    Ep 78 Reversing Diabetes with Brooklyn Borough President, Eric Adams

    Ep 78 Reversing Diabetes with Brooklyn Borough President, Eric Adams

    On today’s episode, Nicolette and Eric discuss how he nearly lost his eyesight because of type 2 diabetes. Instead of googling ‘how to live with diabetes’ as recommended by doctors, Eric instead did a Google search: ‘how to reverse Diabetes’. This launched Eric into a whole food plant-based journey and he successfully reversed his diabetes completely. Eric is now working with schools and other community groups throughout Brooklyn to support them in learning about plant-based wholefoods as medicine. Tune in now to hear more about the incredible work that Eric is doing to heal the American diet and lifestyle. And definitely pick up a copy of Eric’s book, Healthy At Last: A Plant-Based Approach to Preventing and Reversing Diabetes and Other Chronic Illnesses

    Eric Adams is the Brooklyn Borough President and on his own, figured out the formula to reverse his diabetes. Since then, he’s been redesigning communities and setting up systems to support his greater community in tackling the chronic disease epidemic in New York. Eric graduated at the top of his class from the New York City Police Academy.  After serving with the New York City Transit Police Department, he transferred to the New York City Police Department (NYPD) and retired with the rank of Captain after a 22-year law enforcement career. His next foray into public service came when he was elected to the first of four terms in the New York State Senate in 2006. From this position, he represented a diverse range of neighborhoods across Brooklyn. In 2013, Brooklynites elected Eric as the first person of color to serve as their Borough President where he is currently serving his second term as Brooklyn’s Chief Executive.

Interview with Margaret Strauss

Excellent discussion. Thanks so much for hosting Margaret Straus. She has a tremendous amount of experience with the Gerson Therapy. A real pleasure to hear from her after the passing of her mother Charlotte and her brother Howard. I really miss Howard’s show. I feel this podcast will be a great resource for interviews and future news in the world of healing through wise nutrition. Thanks for your dedication, Nicolette!
