Dr. Jessica Peatross, a board-certified internal medicine doctor, left the mainstream medical system and embarked on a journey of natural healing where she discovered the true root cause of many common ailments. Stealth and hidden infections can leave people confused and without hope because of traditional medicines inaccurate testing, and Dr. Jess is determined to fix that. By sharing knowledge around the symptoms, triggers, and co-connection between infections, Dr. Jess hopes to enlighten others around their diseases.
