My name is Alexandra Gellman and here is a brief biography of who I am.
I was born in Mexico but immigrated with my family to Canada at an early age. My ancestry is the foundation of my life; My Mother’s father came from a long line of prominent Yaqui Indians from the northern state of Sonora Mexico and they were renowned for their shamanistic abilities.
In 1996 I started my own practice, Guru and Associates Wellness Inc., offering holistic wellness programs with a focus on nutrition, homeopathy, stress management, and healing past emotional wounds of grief, trauma and disappointments. My aim is to inspire passion within individuals, families and community groups to embrace preventative health for improved quality of life and the realization of dreams.
I am dedicated to lifelong learning and so have a PhD in integrative Medicine and mastered psychological personality assessment tools such as the Myers Briggs Type Indicator, the Enneagram and emotional iridology that help reveal in depth, the unique motivations of each individual for customized consultations and action plans.
In 2013 I achieved the designation of “Holistic Nutritionist” and so am up to date on the newest research on how to heal the body through food and supplementation. I can administer in depth food testing for sensitivities that are different for each individual, and when diet is modified accordingly, can alleviate many common complaints, restore energy levels and overall wellness.
I am a proud member of the new College of Homeopaths of Ontario that offers you now the potential for insurance coverage like other health regulated profession like chiropractors, massage and physiotherapy. Homeopathy is a leading health modality in Europe known for its quick results and preventative action.
“homeopathy cures a larger percentage of cases than any other form of treatment and is beyond doubt safer and more economical” Mahatma Gandhi
I love learning and growing. In 2014 I completed the Cancer Prevention program at the Edison Institute of Nutrition and got the designation Certified Cancer Prevention Coach. I am now taking this to the workplace to help overcome this horrid condition.
I created the Stress Age Questionnaire that was featured on the Wall Street Journal as the only one of its type that brought into the equation the role of stress, loss and environmental toxins. This tool is available and can be offered to you and your colleagues.
I am a sought after expert by print publications, and television and radio media. I have been a key note speaker at numerous corporate and health conventions.
Again, my name is Alexandra Gellman and I am here to help you on your quest for wellness and self-actualization, to help you be the best you can be… physically, mentally and spiritually.
