Dr. Jessica Peatross (Dr. Jess) is passionate about teaching people how to be their own best doctor by educating themselves and listening to their bodies.
In addition to being a board-certified internist, Dr. Jess specializes in multiple alternative healing modalities, including herbal medicine, weight loss, nutrition, ozone, muscle testing, prolotherapy, and vitamin IVs. She has extensively studied Ayurveda, meditation, and is a certified yoga instructor. Dr. Jess is also a Gerson therapy practitioner (a natural treatment that activates the body’s extraordinary ability to heal itself through an organic, plant-based diet, raw juices, coffee enemas and natural supplements), and she is excited to offer this knowledge to anyone with a chronic condition, cancer, or just needing a detox.
Through her own experiences and those of her patients, Dr. Jess has seen firsthand that western medicine falls sadly short in addressing a patient’s whole health. Mind, body and spirit are all connected, and all need to be intimately tended to achieve full happiness. Disease is much easier to prevent than to cure. Through holistic consultations, Dr. Jess develops personalized, preventative, and functional treatment plans, which pave the path to achieving optimal health.
Dr. Peatross earned her medical degree from the University of Louisville School of Medicine, where she also completed an Internal Medicine residency. CA Med. Lic. #: C139872
