My most recent case was just prescribed supplements for heavy metals, parasites, and bacteria and NOT ONE of these things were actually found in her system using my Wholistic Quantum Healer™ method of applied kinesiology.

Even worse, the medical provider hadn't even tested her for any of these imbalances... just said it would be "a good idea to take them."

This is a huge red flag!

Please remember: not all medical providers are created equal. You must ask a lot of questions and never take supplements that aren't specifically tested for your unique system. Diet Supplements, Health Care, Health, Healthcare Provider, Medical, Wellness, Provider, Method

Today, I want to talk about pollen. 🌼

In some places around the world, pollen is out. Everything is blooming, it's springtime, and therefore, a lot of allergies. 🤧

Many of you have been reaching out and asking, "Elena, what can I do to prevent from being impacted by pollen and not having irritable eyes, congestion, and cough?" All of which are quite common during pollen season.

Pollen is related to mold which is a cousin of candida in your GI tract. Whenever your GI or your microbiome is out of balance, you're going to be a lot more sensitive and reactive to the pollen and to everything that is blooming outside.

5 Serotonin Myths
Serotonin is commonly referred to as the "happy hormone." However, the idea that higher levels of serotonin equals increased happiness is just not true. Recent studies challenge the reputation of this neurotransmitter, revealing a dark side to serotonin's effects. I’m debunking 5 common myths about serotonin in today’s blog: Serotonin is strictly “the happy hormone” All mood disorders are caused by serotonin deficiency More serotonin means a better mood Serotonin supplements are perfectly safe Serotonin resides mainly in your brain
Melatonin has become a popular sleep aid for children and adults. This over-the-counter supplement is popular and easily obtainable. A study by The University of Colorado Boulder found that nearly one in five children are taking melatonin for sleep. The American Academy of Sleep Medicine emphasizes that melatonin should be used under the guidance of a healthcare professional and only in cases of diagnosed sleep disorders. Serotonin toxicity or serotonin syndrome can potentially occur when too much serotonin accumulates in the body. Taking medications or supplements, including melatonin or tryptophan, may lead to symptoms like agitation, confusion, and rapid heart rate. Colorado, Popular, Symptoms

1. Supporting a healthy gut with a balanced diet rich in fiber and fermented foods can positively influence serotonin levels. 2. Exercise stimulates serotonin production by increasing the availability of tryptophan, the precursor to serotonin, which can positively impact mood and overall wellbeing. 3. Sunlight exposure increases serotonin production, regulating the body's internal clock (circadian rhythm) and supporting better mood and sleep. 4. Positive social interactions and nurturing relationships can elevate mood and indirectly impact serotonin levels, promoting a sense of wellbeing. 5. Practices like meditation, deep breathing, and mindfulness reduce cortisol (stress hormone) levels and promote a more balanced mood. Chronic Pain, Hormone Levels

Did you know that vitamin C deficiency is the 4th leading nutrient deficiency in the United States? Since our bodies can’t make vitamin C, we need to get it from our food or supplements. I advise taking a tolerable level (up to 2 g) of vitamin C every two hours. Start with a lower dose and work your way up. Not all brands are created equal and it’s important to choose good quality supplements. In my book, Wholistic Wisdom: Awakening Your Inner Healer, I share a full list of my trusted brands.
