Dr. Jess’s Bio 

Dr. Jess (Dr. Jessica Peatross) is a western trained medical doctor who began her journey into healing in 2009 when she graduated from the University of Louisville internal medicine residency program. She is passionate about teaching people how to be their own best doctor by educating themselves and listening to their body.

After debilitating anxiety and mounting health issues, in 2012, Dr Jess had a huge personal awakening. She began to see that western medicine did not have all the answers she was so earnestly seeking. Answers she wasn’t just seeking for herself, but also for many of her patients. She became more aware of the advancement of technology, yet the poor advent of cures for diseases or discovery of the root causes of chronic illnesses or cancer. Dr Jess made the move to the west coast in 2013 where she took some time off work, took up meditation, became a certified yoga teacher, traveled the world, learned about energy work, muscle testing, ozone therapy, studied Ayurveda and found herself. She now fully believes that health begins with Divine, Self Love and Care.

Dr. Jess is also a Gerson therapy practitioner and is excited to offer this knowledge to anyone with a chronic condition, cancer or just needing a detox. In retrospect, Dr. Jess knows she had an unprompted kundalini awakening and was graciously led down the path of enlightenment and her own divine mission. She now believes western medicine is only a piece of whole health. Mind, body and spirit are all connected and need intimately tended to for full happiness. This is the basis for Holistic Consults. As hospitals firmly hold onto their aging beliefs, patients and clients are asking for more from their healthcare providers. Dr. Jess believes that personalized, preventative and functional treatment plans are the next step to revolutionize healthcare. Disease is much easier to prevent than to cure. Dr. Jess would love to help heal you on every level through inspiration, knowledge, movement, nutrition, and eastern and western healing modalities.

  1. Hi, love the podcast, was wondering first if you could repost the link for the article about endometriosis. It doesn’t appear to be working… Secondly, I had had a liposomal CBD oil from SOLCBD recommended for me… Thoughts on this one? And this type (Lipisomal)?


    1. Hi Aubrey! Thanks for letting us know about the link. I just fixed it. I asked Dr. Jess about your question and this was her response, “Sometimes liposomal or cbd formulated with nanotechnology can be more bioavailable or absorbable. It all depends on the strain and the technology though. I’m not familiar with that particular brand, however.”
