Dr. Jessica Peatross (Dr J) 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 stayed in Louisville for 5 years, practicing medicine as a hospitalist in a 320 bed hospital, gaining knowledge about the system along her way. In 2012, after debilitating anxiety and mounting health issues, Dr J had a huge personal awakening. She began to see that western medicine did not have the answers she was so earnestly seeking, not just for herself, but for many of her patients as well. 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. She closely observed the importance of money in the for-profit, pharmaceutical driven, medical world. Dr J 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 J is currently in the second and final module of Gerson therapy practitioner training, ozone training and is excited to offer this knowledge to anyone with a chronic condition, cancer or just needing a detox. In retrospect, Dr J 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 House calls. As hospitals firmly hold onto their aging beliefs, patients and clients are asking for more from their healthcare providers. Dr J 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 J would love to help heal you on every level through inspiration, knowledge, movement, nutrition, and eastern and western healing modalities.
