There was a time when the average American only visited a doctor when sick. Thankfully, the pendulum is swinging away from sickness care toward preventive wellness care of the mind, body, and spirit. Leading this movement are healthcare providers like Dawda K. Pouncy, a functional medicine practitioner with a Doctor of Nursing Practice degree (DNP). A health and wellness expert, nationally recognized speaker, educator, and published author, Dr. Dawda combines natural and conventional medicine to treat the root causes of her patients’ conditions versus merely medicating symptoms. “My life mission is to keep God first and deliver holistic healthcare that works, is safe, and leaves no one behind.”
This begins by really listening to her patients—with extensive appointments—working together to explore the root cause of symptoms and consider how every system of the body affects every other. “I’m blessed to partner with patients who’ve relied on medication for years, to educate them about other options, and empower them to make changes that put optimum wellness care in their hands.” Dr. Dawda develops a unique wellness plan for each patient based on their complete background, environment, toxin exposure, lifestyle, stresses, and more. She works with their other healthcare providers serving as their wellness advocate, always beginning with natural, healthy solutions, and incorporating conventional medicine when beneficial. It’s no wonder patients travel from afar to see her and voted her Best Functional Medicine Provider. Ask about telemedicine options.
