I had no idea that hormones could so significantly affect the way a person feels. Dr. DV listened to my symptoms, health history, patterns of sleep, energy, mood, etc. and recommended hormone testing. Thank you Dr. DV because the hormones you prescribed have made a huge difference in how I feel in so many ways. I feel stronger and healthier on all fronts. Thank you!
“If you are seeking for hormonal, emotional and nutritional balance, than Miss Elaina should be your GO TO! From the day I met her and had my first conversation with her we connected. She knew and understood what I was struggling with after my second born. As we both share a passion of essential oils she gave me more ideas on how to use them for hormonal balance. I combined her ideas with mine and it turned out the best daily combination I could have and use morn and eve. After that she advised me on vitamin supplements and made me do a 1-2 months cleanse of supplements. I was in awe, how even after using the first shot of supplements, it completely changed my moods and well being within hours! She saved me from my worst mood swings!!! Thanks you, thank you, thank you sweet sister for being the one and only support and coach in these times of my worst mood swings!!”
