Dr. Elena has helped me more than any doctors I have seen. She looks at the whole person and how everything is interconnected. Doctors I saw told me I was normal and everything was fine. I was gaining weight in spite of a healthy diet for me, I had digestive issues, my hair was falling out and I was exhausted. I was starting to feel depressed and I was anxious about what was happening with me. I was referred to Dr. Elena by a coworker and after our first visit I started crying. Finally, someone had some answers, understood what was going on and gave me direction and hope. I have lost almost 40 pounds in 5 months, I have energy, I sleep better, my hair is better and I feel alive again. I am so grateful I found her and I highly recommend her!

Just like everyone else - Ive been more aware of my health with the pandemic and desired to get truly serious. I started to work with Dr. Elena previously but travel for work and just let things slip. I called her again when my cardiologist strongly insisted I go on statins/crestor to lower my cholesterol and my lipids that had gotten badly out of range. Although I wasn't really overweight (220 lbs and 6ft 2 inches), I had put on some pounds from travel, not eating the way I should and working long hours. I was serious about my health this time. Dr. Elena ordered blood tests, educated me about what had happened and exactly what I needed to do. This time I really listened and committed to my health. I got amazing results in just the first 4 weeks. In 4 weeks, my cholesterol came down 50 points, my triglycerides came down a whopping 140 points, my HDL went up, my LDL came down, and in only the first 2 weeks, I lost 10 pounds! I was stunned that this all happened so quickly.

r. Elena leadS some fabulous and inspirational weekly guided meditations on Facebook. After listening to several and finding them so synchronistic with where I was emotionally, I decided to try her as a therapist. Her communication style is very direct, clear, and to the point and I found her advice very helpful. I hope you will too. Her meditations are a must for me in terms of managing anxiety.

I have known Dr. Elena for 30 plus years. I was her client in my 20's and again sought her out in my 50's. I have had the most profound experiences with Dr. Elena. She has helped me with my health and with my mental well being. The protocol that Dr. Elena recommended to me have completely transformed my life ( 2 times) . I love the integrity and commitment that Dr. Elena has and am so grateful to have her direction.

I was feeling anxious, depressed and frustrated. I was referred to Dr. Elena by a coworker who spoke highly of her. She has been very helpful on so many levels. I feel more in control of my life and more clear mentally and emotionally. She has a holistic approach which is what I really like, and she thinks outside the box. She is very intelligent, caring and warm. Highly recommended.
