“When a patient’s mental, emotional and spiritual health is out of whack, their gut won’t heal. That’s the most important aspect.”
As a Functional Medicine M.D., Dr. Peter Kozlowski uses a broad array of tools to find the source of the body’s dysfunction: he takes the time to listen to his patients and plots their history on a timeline, considering what makes them unique and co-creating with them a truly individualized care plan. Currently, he works with patients online and in-person via his Chicago, Illinois, and Bozeman, Montana based offices. Dr. Kozlowski did his residency in Family Practice, but started training in Functional Medicine as an intern. He trained in the clinics with leaders in his field including Dr. Mark Hyman, Dr. Deepak Chopra, and Dr. Susan Blum. In today’s talk, we discuss hidden and often missed root causes of osteoporosis and other health conditions. We delve into SIBO, toxins, and how important it is to achieve a balance of body, mind, and spirit. There is a lot to be learned from Dr. Koz’s approach!
