About My Guest:

My guest for this episode is Dr. Peter Kozlowski. Peter Kozlowski, MD 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. His recently published book “Unfunc Your Gut” encapsulates his collaborative, patient-first healthcare approach which offers a blend of medical insight and the experiential wisdom of his own healing journey through addiction recovery. Overall Doc Koz inspires us to seek and find real answers to "what's going on with my health?" and empowers readers with practical strategies to achieve true balance of body, mind, and spirit. His expertise is in gut health, but he also works daily with food sensitivities, hormone imbalances, detoxing from toxic chemicals such as heavy metals and mold, and most importantly mental, emotional, and spiritual health.
