Episode Notes

Our guest today, Dr.Jess worked as an internal medicine doctor after training and getting certified. While working she noticed that many patients with chronic conditions were only getting treated for the symptoms. Nobody investigated the root causes of their conditions and thus never got better. This made her make the transition to natural medicine.

The transition was not easy since the naturopathic side of medicine doesn’t have systems where you can jump straight in. You have to figure out everything as you set up your practice. All the while having obligation including repaying student debt. However, once she made the change, she felt happier as she got to offer real help to her patients. 

We explore the reasons why allopathic medicine and natural medicine have always been at odds especially in the United States and Europe. It is a historical rivalry where each side views the other suspiciously. We argue if it was all about health and wellness, they should coexist and complement each other.

Tune in to learn more about her exciting journey and transition and what she has learn by being an insider in both worlds.
