Dr Jess’s Story: Heal Yourself Before You Heal Others
Dr Jess finished medical school in 2006 after graduating from the University of Louisville and began internal medicine residency thereafter. During this time, she experienced mounting anxiety, hormonal imbalances and adrenal dysfunction due to her long hours and demanding schedule. She also observed that many of her patients never improved and often became a revolving door of admissions in the hospital. In 2012, after health issues began to worsen, Dr Jess had a personal awakening. She began to realize that allopathic medicine did not have all the answers she was so earnestly seeking. Answers not just for herself, but for many of her patients as well. There seemed to be an advancement of the best technology, but a poor advent in the cures for diseases or the discovery of the root causes of chronic illnesses and cancer.
Dr Jess moved to the west coast from Kentucky in early 2013. It was then that she dove into the world of Ayurveda, holistic healing, energy work, nutrigenomics, stem cells, cannabis, Gerson therapy and homeopathy. Her philosophy now embodies true health as being all encompassing of mind, body and spirit. Today Dr Jess practices as a Gerson therapy practitioner, is well versed in cannabis therapy, herbs, and nutritional IVs.
As hospitals, insurance companies, and allopathic medicine hold firmly onto outdated belief patterns, patients and clients continue to ask for more from their healthcare providers.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 a multidisciplinary approach.
