ABOUT

This site is designed to unpack modern health issues and discuss practical and proven solutions to maximise human health.

Our purpose is to build a trusted community of people interested in health to share and learn together.

We are a subscription based website with the aim to create a trusted online community to discuss and share information and recommendations related to health.

In this time of information overload it has come increasingly difficult to sift through information and determine if it is to be trusted. Here on this site we provide personalised, selective information.

The community that we set out to create is not about generating traffic. It is about giving an opportunity to people who work with us to have access to the tools and information we use to continue to help optimise your health through education and personal examples.

KHELGA COOPPER IVANOVA

Functional Medicine Practitioner, ND, researcher, scientist, nutritional and lifestyle strategies, epigenetics, educator

Khelga practices Functional Medicine root cause approach. 

 

Main focus on patient education and healing through addressing the underlying causes that trigger and promote the state of ill health. Her firm belief is that disease is the loss of function, and identifying which function is at loss is crucial to be able to treat correctly and therefore successfully. 

 

Khelga´s main goal is to advocate prevention, and encourage people to check their biochemical and biological sufficiencies. For this she uses the latest state of the art testing that can provide the full picture rather than just the blood biomarker which can be high or low. More often than not the tests are non- invasive such as saliva, stool, urine which provide a fuller picture of metabolic activity within the body. 

 

One of her passion and challenges is to dig in at cellular level of inflammation, and get to understand individual immune reactivity, chronic inflammatory responses, and hypersensitivities to certain toxins and harmful metabolites that reside in the body, causing inflammation. In these particular cases the blood draw would be required. 

 

Khelga participates in regular clinical application and scientific round tables with other clinicians around the world and continually extends her collaborations and knowledge. This she considers the true clinical germs.

 

Staying up -to - date with the latest and being able to translate the complexity of science to clients o audience, personalise science into actionable treatments is her goal and her challenge. 

 

People who get better are those who learn about the triggers and mediators driving the dysfunction, it is not a mere action upon the prescription. Treatment is a process, a commitment to self and a therapeutic partnership. The practice is constantly evolving with the pace of the knowledge and science. We are committed and modesty proud to be able to transmit this to those who reach out to us. 

 

She likes to focus on chronic inflammation, neuroinflammation, central sensitization driven pain such as multiple myalgias, toxic load, endocrine disrupters, immune system reactivity, autoimmunity, cognitive optimisation, gastrointestinal health. She incorporates gene - based medicine in individual studies and is fully qualified in epigenetics. 

 

She merges many different modalities and collaborations and refiéralas to be able to achieve positive impact, as and when needed, such as BHRT, compound pharmacy, dental cavitation, neural therapy, photobiomodulation, low laser, far infrared light, pulsing therapy, micro- immunotherapy, acupuncture, homeopathy, neurofeedback, brain reader, neuroQ, thermal imaging, fascial decompression, and other.

ELIZABETH ELRINGTON

Healthy Home, Breathwork & Postural Alignment Practitioner

Elizabeth is a certified Buteyko Clinic Instructor,  Oxygen Advantage Coach & Postural Alignment Specialist. She has specialized in Radiation Protection (GEOVITAL Academy) and holds a Master of Science from Manchester University, UK.

 

Through combining her scientific knowledge with her genuine passion for health Elizabeth has honed her skills to provide solutions which allows each individual to reach their full potential. This is achieved through a combination of breathwork, postural therapy and tools such as Nerve Express. 

 

With an avid interest in the functional medicine model, which addresses the underlying root cause of disease, Elizabeth works closely with esteemed Functional Medical Practioner, Khelga Coopper, to provide holistic care for all clients.

Nerve Express is an FDA approved medical device that allows us to study your individual heart rate variability. Heart Rate Variability (HRV) has an important clinical reference and it is an actionable approach. This means we measure to create your baseline from which you can improve and monitor your progress. 

 

There is an important difference between the heart rate and Heart Rate Variability which has clinical significance and relevance. While heart rate focuses on the average beats per minute, heart rate variability HRV measures the specific changes in time /variability between successive heart beats.

 

Your Heart Rate Variability reflects how adaptable your body can be. If your heart rate is highly variable, this is usually evidence that your body can adapt to many kinds of changes. People with high heart rate variability are usually less stressed and happier in general. Healthy individuals will have scores of 60-70 (depending on biological age), and top endurance athletes can have numbers of 90-100 (or even higher). Conversely, less healthy people will have numbers in the 40-55 range, and anything below that indicates a low level of vagal activity, which may be a cause for concern.

 

Stress is a big contributor to ageing. If we are to describe ageing in simple terms, we shall distinguish a progressive oxidation and depletions that lead and cause dysfunctions. And disease is the lack of function. 

 

We may often ignore or rather be unaware of certain stressors such as environmental stress (pollutants, noise, blue light, mould exposure), inadequate nutrition such as too many carbs, easily oxidized or rancid oils, frequent alcohol consumption, eating throughout the day without giving time to the digestive tract to rest and recover, hidden infections, stress on the adrenals with inappropriate exercise, incorrect breathing, sleep apnea, snoring, amongst others. 

 

Oftentimes we are not even aware of such stressors as they may not be particularly obvious. But every stressor does count. And, how much we stress our system and how long we stay in sympathetic mode (fight and flight) vs parasympathetic mode (relax and digest) matters. Healthy autonomic nervous system represents your ability to switch between the two modes. Using Nerve Express we examine your “switch” and help you to adjust it to work optimally, and therefore to feel better and age less. 

 

Real age is your biological age and not your chronological age. We all have inside us 78 organs, if we can optimise these organs and stress them less, the ageing will be slower because the health will be more optimal, you will feel recharged and positive inside out. Understanding each individual body functioning at cellular level is at the core of everything we do. 

 

The studies which we conduct on each client then translated into recommendations about technics and tools available to you to continue your health optimisation journey, to become your own master.

LO QUE DICE LA GENTE

Inicialmente me presentaron a Khelga como resultado de mis problemas cognitivos y digestivos.  Khelga ideó una rutina muy completa para mí, después de sus consultas extremadamente detalladas, que incluyeron cambios importantes en la dieta y el estilo de vida, complementados con minerales y numerosas pruebas respaldadas por su profundo conocimiento y pasión por su trabajo.  junto con su increíble cuidado, paciencia, compasión y dedicación por sus clientes.  Puedo decir honestamente, con la mano en el corazón, que hoy y después de trabajar con Khelga durante solo 18 meses, ¡me siento mejor de lo que nunca me había sentido en los últimos 18 años!
