Episode 277: Transforming Medicine – an interview with Dr. Jess Peatross


Dr Jessica Peatross is medical doctor and board-certified hospitalist. She is the founder of the Wellness Plus by Dr Jess platform and the highly acclaimed Lyme disease medical infotainer.

Dr Jess was raised in rural West Virginia by a preacher-missionary father and dietitian mother. Her sheltered religious upbringing and a broken back suffered in an auto accident informed her decision to prepare to serve by attending medical school.

While attending medical school, she developed a passion for internal medicine and after completing her residency she chose to work as a hospitalist. Unfortunately, her time as an in-hospital “first responder” negatively affecting her health because she was constantly in “fight or flight”.

Dr Jess left her job as a board-certified hospitalist to focus her practice on root cause answers for her patients. When she understood that “disease is not one thing but a combination of toxicity and pathogens,” she built a platform to entertain while teaching complex medical topics.

Today, Dr Jess is serving the community on both free and subscription platforms. She offers unparalleled free content on her social media and in-depth video courses and community through her subscription Wellness Plus platform.
