Elena Wilkins loves women, and is passionate about empowering them and helping them take control of their body. She specializes in hormones and female health and has spent the last 9 years extensively studying health and nutrition. Through her podcast and health coaching website, she helps women navigate the world of whole foods plant-based dieting, reverse disease, balance hormones and restore wellbeing.
Working full time, studying full time and being a full-time caregiver stressed Elena’s body and depleted its nutrient stores. Going on the pill caused a host of other health problems, like low libido, hypothyroidism, and unbalanced hormones. But Elena was determined to heal herself naturally. She scorned the prescription drugs in favor of a natural approach, and it worked. She healed her hypothyroidism within a year, without the use of medication. Even though the journey to health was long and difficult, Elena is grateful for the experience, which now enables her to help other women overcome disease and get healthy. For that reason, she says, it was all worth it.
