Every year more people turn to natural forms of medicine to find solutions for what ails them. Meeting this need is Dawda K. Pouncy, DNP, APRN, FNP-C, popularly known as “Dr. Dawda”, an experienced healthcare professional devoted to promoting the advantages of natural healing modalities and preventive approaches to family healthcare. “I have made it my life’s work to raise awareness about healthy, natural living for all, leaving no one behind,” Dr. Dawda* says.
Dr. Dawda’s* career began in earnest when she too faced health challenges. These included chronic pain that ultimately led to her search for more natural approaches to healing. Looking for the root cause of disease, she explored beyond what mainstream medicine had to offer and discovered Functional and Integrative Medicine. Following this remarkable breakthrough, Dr. Dawda* worked to become a Functional Medicine Practitioner.
Over the years, Dr. Dawda* has earned many titles, including Doctor of Nursing Practice, Family Nurse Practitioner, educator, and even published author. But what sets her apart is her collaborative approach to working with patients. She does not simply medicate symptoms; she works with her patients to develop a distinctive wellness plan that fits each patient’s unique background, toxin exposure, lifestyle, stressors, and more.
Dr. Dawda* works in partnership with their other healthcare providers, serving as a wellness advocate, but continually starting with natural, healthy solutions, while adding in conventional medicine as needed. “Being mentally, spiritually, and emotionally balanced seems challenging enough. But, with the right guidance, not only can you and I can make this possible, together, we can make it a fun, rewarding, and potentially lifesaving journey!”
