Uma Dunn, who is a graduate of a medical school in India, has no intention of practicing conventional medicine in the United States. “I am passionately committed to creating wellness, rather than treating disease.”
Dr. Uma Dunn was raised in the United States by Indian parents. Her father was a doctor for the Veterans administration.
When it came time for her to follow in her father’s footsteps, she returned to her native India and received her medical training at the Faculty of Medicine at Nagarjuna University, graduating in 1989. Her medical education in India has been evaluated by Josef Silny and Associates, International Education Consultants and Foreign Credential Evaluation and Verification, who certified Dr. Dunn’s education in India as the equivalent of a “U.S. degree of Doctor of Medicine at a regionally accredited institution of higher education in the United States.”
Soon after graduating from medical school Dr. Dunn decided that she wanted to be a different kind of healer. She extensively researched using natural molecules to create wellness, rather than using drugs or surgery to treat disease. This significant paradigm shift in medicine is attracting increasingly more medical doctors and is known as “Orthomolecular Medicine” or “Functional Medicine.”
Dr. Dunn serves Best Self USA as our resource person for orthomolecular psychopharmacology, (using nutrition to create healthy cognition, moods, and behavior). She contributes to Best Self USA, living up to its goal of “Finding nutritional solutions for emotional problems”
She is also our primary consultant for nutritional guidance in creating general wellness of our bodies.
Dr. Dunn resides in Naples, FL with her husband and daughter.http://bestselfusa.com/
