Daily Inspiration: Meet Dr. Jessica Peatross

Today we’d like to introduce you to Dr. Jessica Peatross. 

Hi Dr. Peatross, we’re thrilled to have a chance to learn your story today. So, before we get into specifics, maybe you can briefly walk us through how you got to where you are today?
I have a passion for uncovering the mystery behind the chronic illness, whether that be stealth infections, heavy metals, stress, trauma, or other environmental toxicities. Originally, I was trained in internal medicine and worked nearly seven years as a hospitalist before realizing I was not getting to the root cause of the problems for my patients. I left my position as a board-certified hospitalist to pursue Functional Medicine in order to better serve my patients, by getting to the real, root cause answers for WHY the body might be malfunctioning. 

My philosophy embraces that health encompasses the whole patient – mind, body, and spirit. , I began to investigate alternatives to today’s modern medical industry that “treats every ill with a pill.” I learned that so many patients were sick due to toxic mold, chronic Lyme disease, and even parasites. By helping the body return to homeostasis, What I discovered is you could often reverse chronic issues that we were told you had to live with forever. 

I credit much of this to my education in Gerson Therapy, Functional Medicine, Nutrigenomics, and Ozone Therapy. 90-90% of disease is a result of lifestyle, diet, and environment. The body has all the answers to heal and reverse chronic disease. 

I have a protocol for helping people return their bodies to normalcy, entitled the Kill*Bind*Sweat method, a timed method of using herbs, binders, and sweating to eradicate stealth infections and invaders from the body. 

Kill – use of herbal supplements to kill off stealth infection

Bind – by using a binding supplement, it acts like a sponge to “soak up” the die-off

Sweat – by sweating via exercise, sauna, or hot baths, the deceased toxins are excreted by sweat out of the body

Recently I launched her Wellness plus subscription app where I enjoy helping thousands learn how to heal themselves. I love to educate and empower, so that is always my goal, especially in today’s landscape where the mainstream is pushing fear, I like to give hope. Hope does still exist. 

Alright, so let’s dig a little deeper into the story – has it been an easy path overall and if not, what were the challenges you’ve had to overcome?
No, I have had my previous supplement company taken from me by being tricked, I have encountered snakes, liars, and fakers, I have met people who only were after what I could do for them. As much success as you attain, be prepared to match an equal amount of challenge and misfortune. Nothing comes without a price. Discernment is a nice quality to foster. 

Appreciate you sharing that. What else should we know about what you do?
I am a functional medical doctor who tells the truth to patients and helps them get to the root cause of their mystery illness. I am originally trained in internal medicine but left my hospitalist job in early 2016 to train in all things functional medicine. Now I feel so much more fulfilled as I get to the root cause of others’ chronic illnesses. HINT: it’s usually environmental… 

What do you like best about our city? What do you like least?
I love the people, the weather, North SD county, and often course the lovely beaches 

I do not like the California medical board, which represents the state and NOT the people or patients. The board subpoenaes patients’ medical records, without their consent and opens them up under the guise of “safety.” 

I don’t like the lack of freedoms or forced mandates throughout California.
