Balance Hormones, Eliminate Toxins with Functional Medicine Doc, Dr. Koz
Our guest today is functional medicine practitioner Dr. Peter Kozlowski, and for those who aren’t familiar with functional medicine, you’re in for a real treat. Dr. Koz practices getting to the root of disease rather than treating the symptoms, while also addressing mental, emotional, and spiritual health. Doesn't that make sense?
Dr. Kozlowski has authored two books: Unfunc Your Gut, in which he tackles gut health and the immune system, and his new book Get the Func Out, where he addresses detoxing from heavy metals, toxic chemicals, and mold. Before writing the books, he trained with luminaries such as Dr. Susan Blum, Dr. Mark Hyman, and Dr. Deepak Chopra. But what's also intriguing is that his path to where he is was not a straight one. Dr. Koz faced some serious adversity along the way, and we're looking forward to seeing how some of those experiences influenced how he practices medicine today!
“We’re all born with a bucket, and we fill that bucket with sugar and bad food and stress and lead and mercury and mold and glyphosate. That bucket eventually overflows into disease. Right? And that’s where most people are presenting themselves to me - when their bucket is full. And then we’re trying to figure out what's in their bucket and what’s filling it." - Dr. Peter Kozlowski
