Dr. Elke’s Story
In my late thirties, I found myself feeling disconnected, exhausted, constantly stressed and not sleeping well. I had lost my fire and spark and certainly my athletic abilities had taken a hit. To top that off I was diagnosed with SIBO, which left me bloated, not feeling very sexy and messed up my digestion as well as my thyroid. I started to dig deep into my medical training but refused to just cover up my symptoms with medication. I wanted to explore the root cause of this mess. I refused to accept that this was going to be my new “normal”. I changed my diet, my exercise routine, and “No” became my new favorite answer to over-commitment. I learned more about my specific physiology and metabolism than I ever thought would be possible in medical school. It worked!
Today I feel strong, my digestion is working again and I have my spark back. My own journey fuels my compassion to help other women, mothers and weekend warriors to feel like an athlete again.
I don’t just treat the symptoms, I look for the root cause and consider the uniqueness of each woman. And I do it all naturally and safely.
I am a women’s health warrior, athlete, mother and wife.
I believe in not just getting through the day, but actually thriving and feeling empowered.
I believe in enhancing our connection with our physical, emotional and spiritual well-being.
I believe in community.
I believe that in order for us to reach our ultimate potential on this earth, it mandates a healthy body and mind.
Here’s to a healthy, empowered, amazing life!
