Healthy Gut, Healthy Body

A healthy gut can provide us with the benefits that extend far beyond digesting the food we eat. One of the main reasons why your gut has so much power is because it is home to the gut microbiome- a complex mix of trillions of gut bacteria and other microbes living inside the digestive tract. 

Balance your gut health, balance your body.

Did you know that 70-80% of your immune system is an integral part of your gut? Without these strong immune modulators that are made in the digestive track, it can lead to autoimmunity, chronic disease, pain, depression, anxiety, chronic inflammation, and more.

Find your balance.

Dr. Maria helps you to integrate the mind, body, and spirit connection to better realize to optimal health.

What’s in the gut?

A healthy digestive system can provide us with the benefits that extend far beyond digesting the food we eat. One of the main reasons why your gut has so much power is because it is home to the gut microbiome- a complex mix of trillions of gut bacteria and other microbes living inside the digestive tract. Though we have taught that bacteria are bad, this is far from the truth. There are scores of beneficial bacteria that play a role in fighting disease and maintaining your health.

I started working with Dr. Maria 2 years ago and it has been a blessing! She has and continues to work with me through all my medical experiences. Over the years, she has proven to be very sound and knowledgeable in her field of study and is always willing to go the extra mile. She has made a very positive impact in my life medically, and continues to fill the gap of unanswered questions that so many were unable to do. From my experience, I am confident that I will continue being a patient for a long time.

I have been a patient of Dr. Maria for 12+ years, initially for breast thermography followed by natural hormone replacement therapy, treatment of thyroid imbalance and allergy testing. Additionally, each year after my annual blood work, I have a thorough review with Dr. Maria where she explains in detail each result, how it affects my health and a course of care if any is needed. I have complete faith in the care and knowledge I receive from Dr. Maria. I would highly recommend Dr. Maria's vast knowledge and expertise in the treatment of any life change, illness or just to keep your body healthy.

I have known Dr. Maria Bellucio for the past 15 years and she has made an impact in my life. She is friendly, smart, hardworking and compassionate in her field of work. Over the years, she has helped me and my family tremendously with various health issues and with great results. She is so caring - I always remember when I was in the hospital for thyroiditis she called me to make sure I was okay and gave me great words of comfort. With her practice, there is always continuity of treatment between visits and she proactively follows up with her patients. She is extremely knowledgeable in so many areas and she always keeps up to date with the latest advances. She is an awesome doctor. You will not regret seeing her.

I originally started with Dr. Maria years ago for thermography testing. Then as I reached menopause age, she has been helping me with my needs for this stage of life. She is very thorough and very knowledgeable. I am doing very well on her regimen!

I have been seeing Dr. Maria for about 15 years and she has been my primary care doctor. I had so many issues when we first met and through the years we eliminated and managed them without pharmaceutical drugs. All these years later I am still following her recommendations and protocol for any issues that come up.

Dr. Bellucio has been my physician for 12 years now, and has been a great blessing in my life. She has worked with me on several health issues, educating me and devising plans to improve my health, all the while thoroughly answering all my questions and listening attentively to my desires. I appreciate her sensitivity to my wishes to approach treatment from a functional medicine standpoint. I am also grateful for how she is continually educating herself so as to provide the best care for her patients. Her move to a different state has not compromised her services in the slightest. She is just as responsive as she was while living here in Florida. I therefore highly recommend Dr. Bellucio.

I started seeing Maria about fifteen years ago when I was having a bad reaction to Synthroid a lab thyroid med. I was looking for a natural alternative and she started me on Nature-Thyroid and have taken since with no negative side effects. Maria also diagnosed me as having Hashimoto's disease which an Endocrinology doctor I had been seeing never thought to tell me in her 15 min appointments with me. I also started having bad side effects of menopause, and Maria explained the need to supplement hormones, so I started taking a hormone test yearly and using the hormones she prescribed from the results of the tests. The horrible night sweats, and all the other bad symptoms went away and I still get tested and feel great with no symptoms. Maria has always taken the time to listen to me, I never feel rushed when talking to her. I have called her with various medical questions over the years, such as when my son brought home scabies, she offered natural ways to get rid of it. I have always looked at natural remedies first rather than going straight to an MD and she always helped me figure it out. I could go on and on about how much she has helped my overall health through the years and as long as she will still offer the testing and coordinating of prescriptions, she will have me as her patient!

Initially I starting seeing Dr. Maria to aid in my aging process and balancing my hormones but over the years I have continued to see her and use her as my primary care physician. She is very thorough with testing and trying to keep your body free of dis-ease so it does not turn in to a disease. A big bonus was the food allergy testing she provides. When finding the results and with minor changes all my allergies disappeared. She was very proactive with immune boosting supplement recommendations for COVID and helpful tips to stay safe and healthy. If you are looking for a jump start on a healthy lifestyle or want to add information and knowledge to your already healthy mind set I highly recommend Dr. Maria.

She always finds the answers to your issues. She has a wealth of knowledge and I would highly recommend her - thank you for all you do Maria 🙂
