Dr. Jess’s Bio
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.
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.

FINALLY SOME HELP.
THANK YOU Dr. DJ SIMS and Nourish Medical Center for all of your help!! Not everyone's body is the same and thanks to your precision approach by diagnosing and treating each person individually. I'm finally on the path to full and natural healing.
Dr. Sims put me on a strict elemental diet for 2 weeks. Then a protein and vegetable diet, added fish oil, L-Glutamine, Zinc, 10 day gut cleanse, Vitamin D3 for the next 2 months. I'm on month 6 (started my cleanse from topical steroids on Nov 18, 2019) and during this time, I researched about the long term Red Skin Syndrome and Topical Steroid Withdrawl recovering time. I prepared myself that I'll have to suffer for the next year or so. My whole body did not like the lapse of topical steroids and after a month my body was covered with rashes. My hands were red and swollen. I kept my skin hydrated with un-petroleum ointment as well as other products to help keep my cool my skin. It helped keep my skin hydrated to a certain degree but it was very uncomfortable when I put my clothes on. I absolutely hated every minute of it.
Why I became a doctor?
