Beyond just treating the symptoms

Dr Jenn Simmons Podcast

It’s beyond just treating the symptoms.  Killing the tumor isn’t the answer—truly healing the woman is. That means removing the parts of your life that lead to cancer and covering your life with what is beneficial and brings you joy.

This is Dr. Jenn Simmons’s philosophy and life mission. After spending 17 years as Philadelphia’s top breast surgeon, an illness she developed led her down the path of studying functional medicine and rethinking everything. What came from her ah-ha moment was Real Health MD, a place for breast cancer patients determined to take back their health. 

This podcast episode is from an in-depth session at the Survive & Thrive Integrative Medicine Summit. Tune in, take notes, and listen a second time because we are discussing Dr. Simmons’ top tips for chemotherapy, gut health, medicinal mushrooms, optimizing before surgery, turning autoimmune diseases into opportunities, and oh so much more!
