#164: The REAL Truth About Breast Cancer with Dr. Jenn Simmons
Show Notes

What we have been told about breast cancer by conventional medicine is a LIE! Today we are going to talk about the REAL truth about breast cancer. My guest today is Dr. Jenn Simmons, the first fellowship-trained breast surgeon in Philadelphia, who worked in conventional medicine for many years before turning to functional medicine. Dr. Jenn tells us about her personal history with the disease, beginning with losing her first cousin when she was just 16 years old to her own diagnosis.

You’ll hear more about:

  • How conventional medicine handles breast cancer and where they’re getting it wrong
  • Debunking myths surrounding breast cancer
  • How we should be looking at breast cancer diagnoses and prevention
  • And more!

More About Dr. Jenn:
Dr. Jenn spent 20 years as a breast surgeon and leader in cancer care in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania until her own bout with illness led her to discover functional medicine.

In 2017 she was diagnosed with Graves Disease, an autoimmune disease of the thyroid. She was told she needed to have surgery, radiation and chemotherapy - all treatments she’d recommended to women all day every day without reservation. But when the words were coming at her, she knew those methods weren’t the right treatments for her, and she began a quest and journey to heal herself.

She discovered functional medicine and knew that continuing to be a surgeon was not living in integrity, because, as a surgeon, she was not really changing the trajectory of someone’s life. She knew that cutting out tumors, while life-saving in the short-term, was not the real solution.

In 2019, she left her esteemed surgical position and founded Real Health MD with the mission to help women with breast cancer truly heal. Since then, she has supported thousands of women burdened by breast cancer.
