In Make Peace With Your Plate , Jess shares her journey from party-girl and cancer patient to healthy lifestyle ambassador. Diagnosed at 22 with a rare type of incurable cancer and told that her only option to prolong her life was to amputate her arm, Jess set about learning everything she could about alternative treatments. Six years on, following a complete change in lifestyle, diet and mindset, she is thriving.

Combining everything she’s learned about health and wellness, Jess now shares her simple philosophy for ending the struggle too many of us face when it comes to food and body image, including:

  • Which foods you need to maintain a healthy body and a clear mind
  • How to create a sustainable healthy lifestyle transformation
  • The elements, apart from food, that contribute to your wellbeing
  • Simple, daily practices to keep you looking and feeling amazing.
Jess’ honest and informative story gives you all you need to become a wellness warrior!

    Jess truly is an inspiration. When researching the book I read this a lot, and feel like it's so easy to come across comments such as these, but can genuinely say this is 100% true in her case. Being the same age as Jess, I related to her story really closely. She has a beautiful writing style and manages to remain incredibly informative, without being preachy, or overly scientific. She's human in her approach, and isn't pushing one particular lifestyle over the other, but simply arming you with the real facts so you can form your own opinions and decisions. Absolutely love it- read it in 2 days as I couldn't put it down.

    While I was pleased that Jessica had found a solution to curing her health issues her chosen regime would not suit everybody.I found certain sections such as the details on coffee enemas too confronting.I also found it extremely annoying how she was forcing her opinions on organic foods down the reader's throat.

                        This is a must have for anyone serious about getting healthy. I learned about Gerson therapy recently and have been amazed at how well I feel after just a few months of doing the therapy. Jess writes from personal experience and tells us how to incorporate Gerson into our everyday lives. I don't have cancer, but I needed to get healthy. Because I wasn't well, I started the therapy, trying to pick and choose what I wanted to do. Jess explains why each part of the therapy is important. I now do everything recommended and it is easy and I feel great. I was on a path of sickness that was scary! Thanks Jess for writing this book and giving us an easy to read guide to Gerson Therapy. You are amazing!
