Dr. Jessica Peatross, MD
Internal Medicine Hospitalist Turned Functional Medicine Leader. A Visionary for the Future of Healthcare
Dr. Jessica Peatross has a passion for uncovering the mystery behind the chronic illness, whether that be stealth infections, heavy metals, stress, trauma or other environmental toxicities. She is visionary for the future of healthcare and left her position as a board-certified, internal medicine hospitalist to pursue Functional Medicine in order to better serve her patients. By getting to the real, root cause answers for WHY the body might be malfunctioning.
Her philosophy embraces that health encompasses the whole patient – mind, body, and spirit – and Dr. Jess has become one of the most-sought after Functional Medicine Leaders. She is known for her ability to help identify the root cause of illness, most oftenly traced back to hidden, stealth infections like Lyme, parasites and mold, Dr. Jess’s area of expertise.
After graduating Magna Cum Lade with a BA in Biology, a minor in Psychology, and earning her medical degree from University of Louisville, Dr. Jess worked as a hospitalist for 6 years before beginning to experience what many of her patients experienced, deep anxiety, hormonal imbalances, and adrenal dysfunction. In the process of trying to heal herself, she sought answers to uncover the root cause of disease – something she thought she had learned in medical school, but realized she had not. She began to investigate alternatives to today’s modern medical industry that “treats every ill with a pill.”
Dr. Jess left her hospitalist position and became trained in Gerson Therapy, Functional Medicine, Nutrigenomics, and Ozone Therapy and quickly uncovered that 90% of disease is a result of lifestyle, diet, and environment as well as discovered that the body has all the answers to heal and reverse chronic disease.
