Dr. Pozun has a passion for promoting wellness and prevention of disease. This involves her strong focus on the functional medicine aspect of seeking the root underlying cause for illness or system imbalance.
“Heal Thyself” is a paramount philosophy that Dr. Pozun discusses with her patients. She offers a well-rounded approach that often involves testing for nutritional deficiencies, food sensitivity testing, and gut dysbiosis evaluation to elucidate the cause for each patient’s inflammation or disease. Then, replenishing nutrients, eliminating inflammatory foods or agents, and balancing the intestinal microbiome often yields incredible results.
True to the LifeScape philosophy, Dr. Pozun especially enjoys getting to know each patient and their families, and the importance of family, relationships and whole-family care – all of which are paramount in customizing successful wellness and treatment plans.
