About Dr. Elena

Here’s my story (or part of it, anyway)…


After a serious surgical procedure at the age of 22, I had what I later came to understand was a “near death experience” (NDE).  After the surgery, the doctors told me that I would never be able to have children.  One year after that, they told me I needed another invasive surgery.  I didn’t have that second surgery, decided to incorporate other methods and instead immersed myself even further into my passion of health and wellness.

Building upon my long-term interest in natural health and being guided by intuition, I was led to a Japanese herbalist.  I diligently followed his instructions while consistently utilizing techniques that seemed to come to me intuitively (probably from my NDE), to create wellness on the physical, mental, emotional and spiritual levels.  One year after that second scheduled surgery (which I had decided not to do), I became pregnant with the first of my two wonderful and amazing sons.

Years later, after living a healthy and holistic lifestyle for over 25 years and helping cancer patients in my practice, I was diagnosed with an aggressive and advanced stage cancer myself.  I became an active participant of my own medical team, treating myself with “alternative” and holistic methods.  I am so very grateful and divinely blessed to share with you, that I am now healthy and well.

More health challenges came a few years later with cardiac issues followed by Hashimoto’s Disease (autoimmune thyroid disease), which wreaked havoc with my entire system.  I was relentless in finding answers and relief for myself and others.  Researching, studying and implementing the newest and most effective cutting-edge treatment options, I now help others finally make sense of their health concerns and symptoms, including the mystery of often-missed autoimmune thyroid.

Many people who come to see me or work with me on the telephone, have been to many doctors and specialists, yet they have not gotten answers or relief from their symptoms.  This can lead to great frustration, feelings of hopelessness, confusion, desperation, depression and anxiety. I understand this, as I was in the very same situation.  I know what it’s like to be sick, and I know what it’s like to focus on getting well again.  It doesn’t happen overnight, but consistency, dedication and attitude go far in healing. I found my way out, and I will do my best to help you do the same.

I am an advocate for enhancing immunity and bringing balance when dealing with any life-challenging situation or long-term chronic illness.  Using my own holistic approach, I utilize a variety of methods, modalities and techniques I have learned and studied over many years, to support you as you learn what is best for you, how to implement it, take responsibility for your body, health, mind, emotions and relationships and become an empowered co-creator of your life.

It is the divine right of every person to enjoy health, happiness and success.  My commitment to this belief may help you achieve your heart’s desire and create the life of your dreams.  Within each of us is a powerful, healing and unlimited energy which when accessed, provides balance, peace, joy and abundance and it is my privilege to do my best to help you connect to it.

Whether dealing with illness, daily stress, relationship issues, overwhelm, physical imbalances, autoimmune syndromes, feeling “stuck” and repeating destructive habit patterns or any other situation where things may seem challenging, the way out…is always through.  By going within, harnessing the powerful and unlimited energy available to us all and allowing our light to shine, we can become masters of our lives and positively affect all with whom we come in contact.
