About Dr. Elsa Wagdy

Dr Elsa has travelled extensively, studied with monks, yogis, and shamans, and is a Zen Master. Additionally, she studied Western, Eastern, Ancient, Current, Allopathic, Integrative, Functional and Natural Medicines. Her specialities for her Post Graduate work included Neuroscience (emphasising neurogenesis and neuroplasticity), Epigenetics (changing genetic expressions), Quantum Physics, Psychologies, Psychoneuroimmunology (PNI – mind changing brain and body), Orthomolecular Medicine, Herbology, Gut/Brain Axis, and Mind & Body connections.

Dr Elsa holds seminars and presentations worldwide that illuminate the relationships between body, mind, consciousness and quantum physics, showing the scientific evidence of how the mastery of your mind dictates beliefs driving thoughts which translate into molecular chemistry we call emotions and ultimately create your life experiences. Furthermore, she provides evidence, explains how physical diseases manifest due to specific patterns, and offers ways to allow the body to heal without intrusive methods.

Dr Elsa’s unique approach and techniques combine various modalities to ignite true inner peace and healing of both mind and body ailments for personal growth and freedom. She bridges the worlds of mysticism and miracles with the newest scientific findings and teaches how to tap into the limitlessness of the mind to flourish and create fulfilling lives. She believes in a scientifically-based and evidence-based holistic approach to healing that incorporates body and mind.

Dr Elsa has endured many hardships in her younger life, including Cancers, Heart Attacks, Tumours, Stroke, Gastro-Intestinal issues, and Psychological issues. Western Medicine offered little help, but through all her training and knowledge, she learned how to overcome such problems and heal without the aid of Pharmaceutical drugs and surgeries. She dedicates her life to helping others heal and lets them know there is always hope if you are willing to do the work to heal. No one can heal you except you, but you need the right tools combined with will.

Dr Elsa is certified and holds several designations, including 4 Graduate Level degrees, 2 PhDs, and Doctorate and postgraduate work. She is Board certified by the American Association of Drugless Practitioners (AADP), the Board of Natural Medicine Doctors and Practitioners (BNMDP), the World Organization of Natural Medicine, the American Naturopathic Medical Certification Board (ANMCB) and the Society of Complimentary, Alternative and Holistic Practioner (SCAHP).

“I had gotten to a point where I felt like the Western medical system failed me, continuing to prescribe me higher and higher doses of pharmaceutical pills when it was clear they were not working, and the side effects were harder to live with than the anxiety they were supposed to be treating. I had given up hope that I would ever feel like myself again, which led to me using some unhealthy coping mechanisms. Luckily I was introduced to Dr Elsa, and after our initial discussion, I immediately felt at ease with her and her methods. She got me to realize the state of constant stress that my body was living in, and I thought I didn’t have any stress. Through a series of daily breathing exercises, an orthomolecular regimen, and lifestyle changes, she was able to help wean me off of all the pharmaceutical drugs and help give me my life back. In just under two months, she has done more for me than others have done my whole life and my ability to recognize how stress affects all areas of my health has grown dramatically. This will be a constant journey, but I know if I am committed to putting in the effort, there will be a much happier and healthier life for me ahead. I highly recommend Dr Elsa and hope that many others get to experience the transformation I had in such a short time.”

“I started my journey with Dr Elsa for about three months trying to overcome a few of my health issues. I suffered from an autoimmune disease that no other doctors could help me with, plus chronic fatigue syndrome, chronic headaches and migraines, and always felt weak. To my surprise, not even one month in, I felt alive, with no more fatigue, headaches had disappeared, and the autoimmune disease had vanished—no need for any pharmaceuticals. I feel like a teenager again with high levels of energy and joy, but I am nearly 40. She might be a Witchdoctor like I call her, but she definitely helped me in all areas of my life, and I can not say thank you enough. I would more than just recommend Dr Elsa; if you have a chance to work with her, keep her really close and make friends. I always get goosebumps when we meet. Her level of knowledge, resourcefulness and her passion and drive to help others heal is second to none.”

“After coming out of a very long and painful marriage, I was stuck in a destructive cycle. Dr Elsa has been an incredible catalyst to improve my mental and physical healing. She also helped me break the cycles that were holding me back. Her unique holistic and practical approaches have given me a balance in my life I didn’t know I could have. Listen to this woman, as she speaks truths.”

“Dr Wagdy has made dramatic changes in my life by focusing equally on mental and physical aspects. She helped me understand how the two are intimately linked and how I can be happy with myself by boosting my self esteem and leading me on a path that has positively changed my life. She designed a nutrition program and helped me with physical and mental goals. I highly recommend anyone that needs a major life overhaul or just a few minor tweaks.”

“I struggled with so many things like depression, anxiety, ADHA, anger issues, pain, an eating disorder, and low self-esteem. I was put on some drugs for a few years to help with my issues, but they always made me feel weird and didn’t help me, so I wanted to be off them but was scared to do that alone. Dr Elsa gave me the tools to deal with all my issues and I’m happy to report that I don’t have these issues anymore and off all the meds. I learned during the study that I’m a lot stronger than I thought I was. That I can help my mental issues in a proper way. I definitely think that if anyone has any issues at all, they need to see Dr Elsa. She is amazing. I never thought I would feel this happy and good. It was all so weird to me to learn so much, but she was so nice and took her time with me to help me. She made me feel safe and helped me so much with everything.”

“I chose to come to Dr Elsa because I’ve been dealing with severe chronic pain from an old injury as well as other health issues related to poor digestion/nutrient assimilation. When I found out about Dr Elsa’s practice and her holistic approach through integrative medicine, I jumped at the chance to work with her. After my first session with her, I knew I had made the right choice and was going to see results. Her protocols started making a difference right away. Dr Elsa reminded me that the journey of health and healing is often painful but necessary. Her extensive knowledge in numerous medical and energy fields is invaluable. She spent a lot of time educating me and helping me to understand what was going on in my brain and body. The biofeedback tools are also an amazing and effective way to see how you are progressing in your healing journey. She has a very direct yet compassionate and non-judgemental way of guiding you as you make the necessary changes required to achieve better mental and physical health. Throughout my time with Dr Elsa, I became more calm, peaceful, confident, and mentally stronger. Towards the end, I realized I had improved in ways I never thought I would. I even learned to reduce or eliminate pain through how I process and accept pain. I’m back to doing things that I haven’t been able to do in years. I have more physical and mental energy. My digestion has gotten better, which contributes significantly to my overall well-being. Thanks to Dr Elsa, I now have the confidence and tools required to continue my lifelong journey to achieving my best health. Thank you!”

“Before Dr Wagdy’s treatment, I was a chronic overthinker, paranoid, and had difficulty trusting my significant other. I would find myself lost in my own head, conjuring up theories about why I couldn’t trust my partner even though they had struggled a lot to prove that I could trust them. Ultimately through Dr Wagdy’s counselling, I was able to discover that the root of my issues. Through many uncomfortable sessions and opening up, I drew out many conclusions with Dr Wagdy. She taught me how to take power away from my mental blockages. To understand the roots and causes took away the feeling of helplessness and weakness I felt from not being able to explain why I was acting the way I did. Being a leukaemia survivor, Dr Wagdy had prescribed me supplements that would help regulate nutrients that my body lacked. I found this to be helpful because many doctors only prescribe short-term treatments that fix the problem now, while Dr Wagdy’s treatment is here to keep you out of the hospital with long-term treatment and healthy lifestyle choices. Dr Wagdy’s treatment has improved me and my partners’ communication skills immensely, and removed my mental issues. I intend to share what I have learned from her treatments with patients I may have in the future as I am a nursing student. I believe her techniques will help patients with their pain and regulate or calm down fears, anxiety, and stress caused by their medical complications. Dr Wagdy is truly brilliant and a very insightful individual; her treatment is, without a doubt, effective and educational. The best part about it, though, is that it is applicable to anyone willing to seek change.”

“As a 54-year-old female in menopause, I was basically falling apart chronic pain and fatigue, high blood pressure, unhealthy habits, and deeply discouraged and depressed. I was taking pain, antidepressant, antianxiety, asthma and muscle relaxants medication on a regular basis. I smoked nearly a pack a day, had an eating disorder, yet heavily overweight. Dr Elsa was amazing for helping me stop with the personal criticism and instead celebrate my victories. I finally got on all the supplements as recommended. Within two days, I found all the energy I thought was gone and my body and mind felt better. I was able to wean off the medications without any side effects, and my blood pressure is back to normal. I started tracking calories and food intake as per her suggestion, as well as my exercise, and lost 20 pounds while eating more. I have also quit smoking for over 12 weeks now. With Dr Elsa’s guidance and support, we found root causes for the physical health issues and the psychological ones. I absolutely love Dr Elsa and the genuine care she brings to her process. I have learnt a lot, and it is important to be told directly when you are blowing smoke up your own skirt. I am grateful that she encouraged me to be accountable but did so without judgement. She provided a safe and calm environment to address my issues of emotional, spiritual, and physical health and helped me to resolve so many issues in my life. I am in so much gratitude for this experience and really believe completely in these methods. I recommend her to everyone I know, no matter what issues they have.”

“I was fortunate to find Dr Wagdy and at a very low point in my life. Dealing with personal issues as well as a stressful work environment, having mental and physical health issues; I have attempted all the traditional medical and/or mental health therapies available in Western Medicine. Traditional medicine/mental health, although useful in many situations, is not the only avenue. I now believe that where traditional medicine became ineffective, holistic medicine picked up the trail. Dr Wagdy has a genuine desire to first understand and then guide her patients to heal themselves. I was able to feel that authenticity upon meeting her, immediately putting me at ease. More importantly, I now understand that “I” am in control of my thought processes as well as what I put in my body. I can choose to understand what works best for me and discard what has not worked. Quantum Physics is something I simply would never have considered in the past. I now deem what was once considered “not possible” explainable through quantum physics as a sort of “miraculous healing!”

“I have been seeing Dr Elsa for a short amount of time but already the results are invaluable. I had come dealing with work stress, having seizures, panic attacks, trembling, high blood pressure, and early-onset dementia. Through her explanations she was able to pinpoint that there were other factors that were contributing to the physical health issues. Dr Elsa explained that I needed to reset my body and recommended supplements to take. I was also prescribed a diet to follow and other specific exercises and protocols. She also provided explanations in very layman’s terms on what was subconsciously going through my mind and how it manifested in my body with ties to quantum physics. I have found that my body and my mind are responding. I am more alert, less tired, less stressed and have lost about 15 pounds of weight, plus my seizures, trembling, and panic attacks have also stopped and I seem to be regaining more memory. Dr Elsa is not judgmental, nor does she make you relive your past. She provides guidance on how to approach issues and remove the stressors. As mentioned, I have only seen Dr Elsa a couple of times but will continue to do so given the incredible results in only two sessions. There have already been significant changes in my life and I’m extremely happy with what we have achieved. As one who may be considered a naysayer on therapy or discussing my feelings, I would have no issues recommending any of her techniques to anyone as she provided a safe and nonjudgmental atmosphere for healing!”

“Dr Elsa help me lower my blood pressure naturally and remove pharma meds. I chose Dr Elsa and I’m glad I did. I learned several things from Dr Elsa regarding the essence of who I am and the potential for improving my current mental state and physical health naturally. One of the things that I did while under her care was alcohol cessation. She helped me realize my psychological issues for my alcohol consumption and that to improve my state I had to stop drinking. I was introduced to other protocols including supplements to help regulate my body and mind. I also learned that breathing and mental state coincide, among other things. I highly recommend De Elsa’s services as she lends a friendly ear and because she’s been through so much herself, she has the lead on knowing what you’re going through. Dr Elsa for the win!”

“I connected with Dr Elsa in a way that I never had before. I opened up to her about some dark spiritual experiences that I had while I was admitted in the hospital for severe mental issues. I was in a very dark place at the time. I felt so much fear and anxiety about the state of the world and our future among other things. She understood where I was and was very compassionate. She began to teach me about some basic quantum physics principles. I was keenly alert to everything that came out of her mouth. She taught me about the conscious and subconscious mind, of the vastness of the universe, what matter is and much more. She taught me how everything is vibration and there are low and high frequencies. She shared something with me that I desperately needed to know to help me realign my life with God. I was struggling deeply at the time because the faith that I had was gone. I wanted to understand her perspective on how God fits into the concept of quantum physics. Dr Elsa told me that the unified quantum field has many names and God is one of them, but God is pure unconditional love. I thought to myself wow that is true and it resonated with my soul. I feel incredible and the darkness has lifted. The love and pure concern the Dr Elsa gave to me that day is a gift that I could never repay. I am full of gratitude for the generosity of spirit and love that Dr Elsa emanates and for the oxygen that she gave me when I was in desperate place. She’s inspiration and an example of how we can overcome and triumph in this life.”

“I am pleased to say that through our few consultations Dr Elsa has given me a much greater understanding of the endocrine system and chakras. Her lessons and techniques into quantum physics and medicine allowed me to reach my quantum blueprint and physically reduce an abscessed tooth to under half of its original size within an hour and even took away my anxieties and fear. I am definitely a believer in her methods. Thank you, Dr Elsa!”

Shawn Greer

“I am writing today to offer my strongest endorsement on Dr Elsa. I met Dr Elsa when I was a new mother stuck in a toxic relationship. Dr Elsa is an incredibly skilled and compassionate individual who has helped me through some of the most challenging times of my life. What really makes Dr Elsa unique is her ability to connect with individuals and make them feel accepted, heard, and understood. Dr Elsa also has the ability to create a safe and supportive environment that has allowed me to explore myself, my thoughts, and my actions and to accept myself honestly and openly. Dr Elsa supported me with a wide range of mental health issues from PTSD, abuse, relationship issues and helped me create safe boundaries for myself. Dr Elsa is always willing to listen without judgment. Through her expertise I found self acceptance in myself and have learned to love myself a little more everyday. I firmly believe Dr Elsa is an incredible doctor and I would highly recommend her without hesitation. Her knowledge of psychology and therapy has helped me in my recovery.”

“I swear the universe put me in touch with doctor Elsa. I had a nervous breakdown and had zero ideas where to start the healing. I had seen several other therapists and doctors, but talk therapy was useless. At the time of finding her through an Internet search, I was feeling completely hopeless. Her means of therapy and protocols are so different from anyone else I had read about or seen. By learning to control your thoughts, doing breathwork and meditations, you find a place of calm to sit with your emotions and thoughts and understand them. Supplementation is provided for what your body is lacking or not producing well. The protocol she gives to you at your first session is 100% custom to your needs. Having been a spiritual person most of my life, I appreciate her knowledge and experience with the laws of the universe, yoga, Reiki, meditation, breathwork, nutrition, herbs, quantum physics, fitness, medicine and psychological background. She is a true believer in getting to the root of the issue instead of suppressing the symptoms. She DOES NOT ENABLE or CODDLE you. She makes you dig deep into yourself and makes you hit a point of discomfort because it’s only there that healing and growth occur. You can’t be healed and better yourself if you stay in your comfort zone. Others I know have been in therapy for more than 3 years with little to no changes. I have been seeing doctor Elsa for five months and have had tremendous improvements and growth seen within the first week. I feel more like myself than I have in years. I know I am leaps and bounds further than if I had gone with another doctor. I have referred her to everyone I know that is in need of help, whether it’s a disease, addiction, trauma, or just feeling stuck in life. I don’t do this often because I never want my name on something that may fail, but I know with doctor Elsa a person cannot fail unless they aren’t willing to do the work she gives them. This has been a life-changing experience for me, and I think doctor Elsa with all my heart. I have zero doubt that with her on my side, I will get even better. I’m so grateful for her and her knowledge.”

“I am writing this to help others get the help they need and know there is a doctor who can really help. As someone who lives with PARKINSON’S in his 60s, I thought life was hopeless and that I was only going to get worse and die soon because all the doctors kept telling me this. Every doctor I saw said the same thing until I met Dr Elsa. She helped me, for several months, gain more control over my mind, which helped me learn to control my body. I had no idea how much the mind really controlled my body and this disease. Within weeks of really hard work and some initial discomfort, I was able to walk unassisted and not shake. I can now walk with more control, go for daily walks, shower, feed and get dressed by myself. You have no idea how these little things matter so much when you have Parkinson’s. I feel more peaceful and know I can live a good life now. Even though I may never get back to fully normal and still need some meds, I take less than half of them now and enjoy life better, and I have hope I will eventually not need them. I want people to know nothing is hopeless, but if you have serious health issues as I do, you have to work extra hard in the beginning to fix what needs fixing with the stuff under your control. I learned a lot about the mind and body and some quantum physics related to diseases. Dr Elsa takes her time to teach and answer questions, so you really get what and why you are doing things. As someone who is very logical and not into hippie-dippy crap like the law of attraction stuff, I was grateful for her scientifically based education. Dr Elsa is there every step and really cares. Parkinson’s may not fully go away at my age, but you can learn to reverse and control it enough to live a good quality of life. THANK YOU SO MUCH DR ELSA! I tell everyone about you.”

Marcus Leanard

“I met Dr Elsa Wagdy at the GutCanBeHappy clinic. Dr Elsa helped with my healing and in the shortest time possible. When I first started working with Dr Elsa, I had been suffering from chronic symptoms for at least two years. I had bloating, inflammation, excessive burping whenever I ate, diarrhoea, stomach pain, low energy levels, depressive moods, and I hadn’t menstruated for almost a year! For those two years, I was given medication by my doctor, which didn’t help much at all. My symptoms were being treated as something that needed to be managed, and at that point it looked like I would have to deal with all of that for the rest of my life. But with Dr Elsa’s guidance, most of my symptoms reversed within a month! The bloating stopped, the excessive gas went away, my diarrhoea was gone, my energy levels started to improve, no more stomach pain, and I even started menstruating again. This domino effect came from just small lifestyle changes that focus on the root cause of my symptoms. I gained a newfound hope that I could get better, and I now feel like I have a new chance at life. I am even off all my medications. I’m writing this because I could see how invested in my recovery Dr Elsa was. The best thing about her is that she is educated in both the body and the mind, and she understand how both work together. If you’re someone who hasn’t found a solution to your issues, I really hope you can give her a try. She will get to know you as an individual, and tailor a plan that is just for you. Thank you Dr Elsa.”

Sumayyah Hussein Sadiq

“Dr. Elsa is one of those Doctors that you only find once in a lifetime! Her approach to health is not simply “healing your physical body”, but more  importantly your mind. During one of our first sessions she said, “if your mindset isn’t right, your body won’t be either”- something I live by now. When I came to Dr. Elsa, I was suffering from acne, constant gut issues, the toll my body took from an entire month of heavy antibiotics that had destroyed my system, and a roller coaster of emotions from seeing numerous doctors and spending thousands of dollars to heal myself. All the vitamins, medicine, detoxes, and tinctures that were recommended to me never seemed to fix the root cause of my issues, which was truly what I wanted to address- the root cause, and not just a temporary fix. After speaking to her during our first sessions, she made me realize that my body would heal itself  once I corrected my mindset- once I stopped fixating on “fixing myself” and focusing on how sick I was. Not only is Dr. Elsa an extraordinary doctor, but her kindness, compassion, understanding, and overall care for her clients is one of a kind. She takes the time to listen to your concerns, never making you feel rushed or dismissed because she has other clients. She recommends ways to approach your condition and treat it in natural ways, but most importantly explains the reasoning behind it and educates you in a way that no classroom can teach. Dr. Elsa’s approach is truly simple. Making small changes in your life that bring big changes! The education component she brings to the table is unlike most doctors, as she explains the why behind illnesses, and how to prevent it from reoccurring- whether that be staying away from certain foods, or adding more outdoor time and mediation into your day. I am truly grateful that I was introduced to Dr Elsa and her contributions to healing the root cause of my health issues. For those seeking to find solutions and answers to the why behind your illnesses, or merely seeking to improve your mental health, she is the absolute best you can find! Her straight forward and simple approach to the mind and body is something I haven’t found in any other doctors.”

“Dr. Elsa is a true healer. Her knowledge of so many subjects is truly amazing and she integrates many facets of her expertise into a unique plan to address each patient’s needs. I am so happy to have found Dr. Elsa at a time when I needed support through some major life shifts and stress. She has helped council me through my changing life and support my spiritual growth and journey as well. I also was taking pharmaceutical drugs to treat ADHD and I wanted to stop taking them. She helped support me by recommending herbs and supplements to take as I slowly reduced my dose, and I’m happy to report I no longer take the drugs and am doing really well.  Thank you Dr. Elsa for being so caring and for sharing your knowledge and healing gifts!

“Wow, where to begin?! I have been working with Gut Can Be Happy, Dr. Mel, and Dr. Elsa for a few short months now and I’m eternally grateful I took the jump to work with them. A quick bit of information about myself; I am a former athlete with a history of drug and alcohol abuse that ran for close to a decade. I destroyed my body and mind to the point of experiencing chronic aches, pains, anxiety, stress, depression, paranoia, and more all before the age of 30. In more recent times, I am making better decisions where I am a nursing student while working part-time at the hospital on a cardiac step-down unit. I exchanged one stress for a different type of stress and my body and mind were letting me know I needed to make some additional changes. I doubted homeopathic medicine but didn’t want to continue seeking the traditional medicine routes or medications. I see copious amounts of medication distributed to patients throughout any shift, and don’t get me wrong, medication has its place, helps people, and saves lives. There are certain instances and situations where medication is the best or only option, but for the vast majority of individuals, medication can be avoided by incorporating positive, consistent daily habits. This is where Gut Can Be Happy, Dr. Mel, and Dr. Elsa came in and have helped me incorporate small, measurable, and attainable habits to help bring my body out of fight or flight. And after a couple months, my body is healing itself and returning to homeostasis. I have been able to push myself in the weight room, I am more focused at school, and I am able to regulate my emotions and physical responses to the external environment. I enjoy being able to see and enjoy the positive changes to my mind, body, and spirit . I am eager to continue working with the team and healing my body from the inside out. If you want/need to take back control of your health and life, I would take the leap with the Gut Can Be Happy team.

Ryan Rogers

“I have been working with the Gut Can Be Happy team and Dr. Elsa for six weeks now. In this time my day to day wellbeing has completely changed. I saw symptom relief within my first two weeks and had been in a severe Crohn’s disease flare for four years. I went from eating nothing during the work day and rushing home to use the bathroom to being able to eat regularly throughout the day without symptoms. My energy levels have improved and I’m just in an overall better mood because I am feeling well.
When you’re having gut issues it affects every aspect of your life. Having Crohn’s disease for the past 17 years I have always relied on medication to keep me well. I was never given guidance on how what I was eating was also a source of inflammation. Dr. Elsa provided the clear steps I needed to take. She was available whenever I had questions and listened to all my concerns. Though I’ve had to replace a lot of the foods I used to regularly eat, I now realize those foods were detrimental to my health. On the flip side I’ve been able to eat so many more foods that I had previously avoided because I thought they were the source of my symptoms. I cannot recommend the Dr Elsa enough. I believe she can help resolve even the worst of symptoms. If you’re even the slightest bit curious about what she can do to help you, take the leap, and sign up for a consultation. You won’t regret it!”

Meghan Gagliardo

“I was diagnosed with stage 4 gioblastoma cancer. I remember feeling shock from my oncologist and feeling like I’d left my body while he was talking. He said it was very aggressive and the outlook was really grim. He kept talking about stats and options for aggressive chemo and radiation and serious surgeries but that still the chances of remission were low but maybe could give me a few extra weeks. I saw 4 other oncologist and had the same review. After I told my family, they all tried to push me to do all that stuff but I really didn’t want to go through all this knowing that I’d not live long anyways. So I finally told them no! If I’m going to die anyways then let it be without feeling worse and let me be with my kids and loved ones. I wanted to see about other approaches that I’d heard about. They were not that supportive at all. I found Dr Elsa by chance on google and looked at her website. She worked with all diseases so I thought I’d reach her for other options. I had nothing to lose now. Dr Elsa was so calm, kind, extremely knowledgeable and reassured me that even though she doesn’t claim to cure cancer she can at least help make it less painful and perhaps give more time naturally if I’m willing to go all in. Ok! She put me on A LOT of vitamins, mineral, herbs I’ve never heard of and completely changed my diet. I was also on different types of exercises and movement I’ve never done. The big part was some specific types of breathing patterns, meditations, listening to some weird tones and a lot of therapy dealing with issues I had not even thought of for years. After a couple months like this I felt sooo different at my core. The beginning was hard for me but Dr Elsa was always with me every step. I’d text and she’d be there for me. She was like a light shining for me no matter how dark I felt. She helped guide me. It’s been a year since my prognosis and I am cancer free. The oncologists have no idea how that’s possible and I shouldn’t be here. They keep saying whatever I’m doing to keep doing and that I shouldn’t get my hopes up because it’s likely to come back worse. Wow, really nice of them. But like Dr Elsa says “don’t ever believe a prognosis, just take the diagnosis and get other opinions from different types of doctors” I cannot begin to express the love I have for Dr Elsa. Her methods work! She’s not just a doctor, she’s a light of hope for anyone who has any serious issues. I stand with her and will reach her for any issues I face again. THANK YOU FOR MY LIFE!”

“Firstly, I would like to give my thanks to Dr Elsa and the team because of how knowledgeable and helpful they have been during this journey. When I first decided to embark on this journey, I was experiencing a lot of menstrual cycle issues, weight issues, lack of focus, lack of energy, etc. I am not a big fan of using prescription medication to “solve” all these issues because I always perceived it as a bandaid rather than a solution; I wanted to know what was wrong and why my body was reacting the way it was. With Dr Elsa, we were able to figure it out, and it was so fascinating how the easiest and minor changes made such an impact. I will say it was a bit difficult to get my body out of this bad pattern and habits, but the changes were so obvious immediately in regards to how my body felt. It’s such a motivation to know that your body feels great on the inside that you eventually start reflecting that feeling in the way you express yourself, and your physical appearance also starts reflecting that. Weight loss has always been an issue for me, and it’s been such an amazing journey learning to listen to my body and knowing what it needs and what it doesn’t like once you’ve detoxed it of all the junk you’ve put into it after so many years. I am very happy with the progress I have made in losing some weight, having regular menstruation, and having lots of energy and feel very positive and again so grateful to have Dr Elsa as a guide. I am looking forward to further progress in this lifestyle.”

“When I first came upon Dr Elsa Wagdy’s profile on LinkedIn, I was blown away. I had never seen so many acronyms after a person’s name. I knew I wanted to speak with this woman if I had the chance. In February of 2023, I was diagnosed with prostate cancer. Knowing that Dr Wagdy could help me, we started by going over my current diet, lifestyle overall and mindset, including mental and emotional aspects. She explained to me all of the errors and misconceptions I was operating under, like most people. She then told me that if I wanted my health to improve, I needed to follow her advice fully, so I did.  It was difficult at first. I had to give up so many foods I had been eating for years. At the start, I was feeling weak and tired with some emotional moments, which is normal and part of the detoxing process, but it got easier within a few weeks. I was worried that my weight training was suffering and complained that I could not lift as much, which she said would also improve with more time to even better than before. Given that she is also a bodybuilder and powerlifter, I trusted her. Five months later, I have lost approximately 15 pounds of fat, but I am stronger and more muscular than ever with better strength. Even more astonishingly, all the digestive problems I had disappeared, which she had said they would. The cancer has also halted and stopped its progression and shows amazing results. My blood sugar level is beyond great, and Dr Elsa says that sugar is the leading cause of cancers and several neurodegenerative diseases, so I am fortunate. I also have a more positive attitude and mental well-being. Dr Elsa truly believes in the mind and spirit’s power over the body and their role in overall vitality and longevity. She says there are only two realities; either you are in control of your thoughts, or your thoughts are in control of you. The choice is yours and leads to the life you have. In summary, Dr Elsa offers the complete package: medical care that emphasizes the relationship between mind and body and works with both conventional and alternative medicines. This sets her far apart from the vast majority of other medical professionals. I recommend Dr Elsa to anyone experiencing a medical or mental situation they cannot resolve or who wants someone who can heal them without further hurting them.”

“I was in a very dark place and she helped me get my life back. I am incredibly grateful for the transformative impact that Dr. Elsa Wagdy has had on my life. When I first started working with her, I was grappling with severe PTSD and debilitating gut issues that had left me in a very dark and challenging place. I had lost hope and felt like I was drowning in my own struggles, and was on several medications that didn’t work well and had bad side effects. Dr. Wagdys compassionate and comprehensive approach was a beacon of light during that difficult time. Her deep understanding of both psychological and physiological aspects of health allowed her to create a holistic treatment plan tailored to my unique needs. She guided me through the process with unwavering support, providing me with the tools and strategies to navigate the complexities of my PTSD while also addressing the root causes of my gut issues. What truly sets Dr. Wagdy apart is her ability to connect on a personal level. She not only listened attentively to my concerns but also made me feel heard, understood, and valued as a person. Her empathy and genuine care created a safe space in which I could openly discuss my fears, anxieties, and challenges without judgment. Through her guidance, I not only regained control over my mental and emotional well-being but also experienced significant improvements in my gut health. Dr. Wagdy’s integrative approach, which combined evidence-based therapies with a focus on nutrition, lifestyle, and mindfulness, played a pivotal role in my recovery journey. Today, I stand on the other side of darkness, leading a fulfilling life that I once thought was unattainable. I credit this remarkable transformation to Dr. Elsa Wagdy’s expertise, dedication, and unwavering support. Her compassionate guidance helped me reclaim my life from the grip of PTSD and gut issues, and I will be forever grateful for her role in my journey to healing and happiness. I also completely off pharmaceutical medications that I was on for decades. Dr. Wagdy is not just a doctor; she is a true healer and a beacon of hope for those in need.”

“My name is Dustin, and I’ve been having a lot of issues over the last little while with stress and seizures/epilepsy. Over the last few months of having Dr. Wagdy’s support, I’ve been able to manage my stress a lot better and feel better in general. Best part is my seizures have stopped since I’ve been seeing Dr Wagdy and following her protocols. She’s also helped me find a better diet for my personal health, which I believe is one of the best things that really helped. I’ve found that with the support I’ve gotten I’ve found myself in a better mental space and physically feeling healthier than before. I can’t thank Dr. Wagdy enough for hows she’s helped me, and for how my health and self has improved since first meeting her.”

“My Drs all told me that I’d be on pharmaceuticals forever and never get my nerve damage reversed and I’d only be getting worse. I’m almost 70 but after working with Dr Elsa, a month using her protocols, my neuropathy in my legs and feet has reversed and continues to get better. Even my MD Dr was shocked and asked me how and what I’m doing so I told them about Dr Elsa. I was always 7/10 for feeling and now I’m 10/10. I’m now also off these pharmaceuticals. My Specailist is so impressed. I’m so thankful for Dr Elsa’s help and now working on other health issues with her. God bless you!”

“I recently had the pleasure of working with Dr. Elsa.  Initially, I was not sure what to expect. From my previous experiences, it might’ve gone something like crying, talking, crying some more but plateauing at some point and never really healing.  I have been going through couples and individual therapy for years, and Dr. Elsa’s approach was completely different. These last nine days with Dr. Elsa has been mind and life altering for me. Since my brain like facts and science backed data, her focus with me was on neuroscience and biology of the brain and body, which made much more sense to me explained this way.  We talked through emotions but understanding what is actually happening to our body and more importantly, my subconscious mind. She pulled data and knowledge from neuroscience, spiritual and quantum physics perspectives and beautifully explained the whys to what I was feeling and reacting and how this was very much in my control.  I came in with self identity and marital issues and at the end of it I was equipped with techniques and tools to help my situation.  She even is helping me get off my prescription medications! Anyone who has an open mind and likes science backed data would resonate with Dr. Elsa’s approach. It’s been life-changing for me and I can’t wait to apply this in my own life. Much love and with a heart filled with gratitude, thank you from the bottom of my healing heart and mind Dr. Elsa.”

“I just completed my 5 day Intensive Trauma Release therapy with Dr. Elsa. To say that I am a different person is a huge understatement. When I arrived at the retreat I felt completely broken inside and it had started to spill out into every aspect of my life including my relationships. I felt suffocated, I felt sad and I felt alone even when there were people around me all the time. I wanted to crawl out of my own skin. I knew I had deep rooted trauma from a young age and beyond, and I thought just talking about it was processing it. It became clear to me after years of this, anxiety and chronic stress to the point of actual physical pain in my body, coupled with the choices I’ve made along the way, that I was not processing anything. I was burying it, layer upon layer and my  body had turned into a pressure cooker just one trauma trigger away from exploding. So I decided to invest in me and get the real help I felt I needed. Luckily for me Dr. Elsa resonated with me immediately. Her calm caring nature, her kindness. The way she made me feel safe with sharing things I’ve never shared with anyone. Just those qualities alone helped me release years of pain and memories I didn’t want to face. I’ve been to therapy many many times before. The difference between what I’ve tried in the past and my time with Dr. Elsa was that she showed me how to truly release and let go through acceptance of things I cannot change. I was continuously rehashing traumatic events over and over like I could somehow change them if I talked about it enough. But it is only with true acceptance of what is, that you can find the courage to let it go. Because that is your choice. Another thing she taught me. I have a choice. We all do. And when you have choice you have power. And with power you have freedom. That’s just the emotional healing I was able to achieve, then there is the knowledge I have learned from her. Learning the science of the brain and how it works, responds etc. for me, knowing the why and the how my brain works was a huge part of my healing as well. And she knows her stuff. She is extremely intelligent, of course her credentials show that as she is highly educated, but it’s more than that. She really cares about people and she cares about helping them and educating them as well so that they have the tools to continue their healing journey and help others if they wish. I am so thankful that I made the choice to commit to this because it has changed me and made me a much lighter person. Confident and ready to start fresh with my new mindset. And I couldn’t have done that without the support and encouragement from Dr. Elsa.  She’s absolutely phenomenal, she’s a rockstar and knows her stuff and can always back it up with facts.  I loved that about her. I would 1000% recommend her.”

“I was feeling off centre between my mind and body, and was starting to look at the world negatively and with resentment. I was stuck in the negative self talk spiral and couldn’t seem to get out of my own way. Having had quite a bit of therapy over my 48 years to deal with childhood and other types of trauma, I know what type of Doctor I need. My analytical brain needs someone who can give me solid advice without BS and fluff, and explain the science behind the theories of the mind. Dr. Wagdy is exactly who I have been looking for. Within a couple of hours she helped me understand not only why I have so many autoimmune diseases, but what I can do about them. She reconnected me to the spiritual realm to help me remember what I am, and what power I truly hold over my life and my body. I am looking forward to continuing work with her, and am excited to see what transpires in the future.

“I came to Dr Elsa with massive panic attacks, anxiety, so much fear of life, from a mental ward, with constant shaking, couldn’t keep my hands still, nausea and pain in my gut all the time, rashes that wouldn’t go away, haven’t been able to live alone, or take care of myself in a long time, and severe pain in my body all the time with issues in my blood pressure. I couldn’t even shower or be touched and was on so so many drugs that didn’t really help. Really suicidal and didn’t want to live this way and worried I was gonna be locked up again. I lost my ability to hold memories and just got stuck in so much fear. I was told by all kinds of doctors that I saw that I’d never get better and they didn’t understand where all my health issues were coming from and it’s all just my head. 

Dr Elsa is the only one who listened to everything I had to say, and helped me understand what was happening in my body and in my head and gave me a lot of stuff to do that helped me and answered my questions and gave me some peace again. For the first time in years, I feel some peace and Hope and excited about my future, and my pain stopped, and I could have a shower and my trembling all went away with the nausea and blood pressure is normal. And my memory came back too a bit in just a few days with her. Dr Elsa treated me like a person with respect and curtesy. She’s the only Dr who didn’t think I’m  crazy. She’s so kind and so smart about so much. She cares. I know there’s lots to go through still but I feel better and actually have some hope and plans now to live a good life. I want to thank you so much.”

“When genuinely seeking help and guidance, it is extremely hard to find a vast array of knowledge and resources combined in one individual suited for your personal needs. As someone who has been to countless professionals; including doctors, life coaches, counsellors, social media experts, etc., it becomes very overwhelming, lonely and discouraging to think you have exhausted all avenues when trying to heal yourself. I personally struggle with ptsd, pcos, burnout, stress, trauma, all forms of abuse, etc. After one google search I was blessed to meet Dr. Elsa Wagdy. In just five days, I was able to transform my mind in understanding the functions and processing of why I am the way I am today. I have learnt the tools to better myself, my peace and my family. I have discovered mindfulness through breath-work, journaling and assessing my emotions.  I have validated my past is most definitely not my future.But most importantly I have rebuilt my strength and confidence incredibly fast. All of this would not have happened if I did not take the risk in flying across the country to meet such a talented, intelligent, and humble individual such as Dr Elsa. I am so honoured to have met and grown a friendship with a woman who truly strives in helping people heal. An individual who looks at you as a human being and not another patient. To anyone seeking genuine healing through a factual and holistic approach; in my experience of 100% success, please do not hesitate taking the leap of faith and using an amazing doctor such an Dr Elsa. It will be the best decision you have made for yourself. Thank you truly Elsa.”

“My visit and counselling sessions were far more than what I had hoped for. In March of 2023 I was diagnosed with a low-grade astrocytoma, a type of non-benign brain cancer. I soon had a biopsy then a full craniotomy which removed 85-90% of the tumor. The MRI a week after surgery showed enhancing (active) residual areas of where the tumor remained, in the posterior and anterior areas. I was recommended to take radiation and chemotherapy right away after being told a watch-and-wait approach would be appropriate. I, and my family were devastated hearing this. I declined the initial treatment option in favor of a holistic healing approach which consisted of diet, exercise, meditation and supplementation including Cannabis. I realized that I needed some guidance in my holistic/naturopathic healing journey, that I needed someone who specialized in this type of healing but also had MD training. It is not easy to find. My wife found Dr. Elsa and after reviewing her website, credentials, life story and even watching some interviews/talks with her online she seemed like the perfect fit. The challenge is finding professionals with as this type of training that also possessed a medical background, and Dr. Elsa fit the bill. I had several specific goals when I met Dr. Elsa:
1. Finalize a diet plan that is tailored to my needs, based on my disease.
2. Nail down an exercise regime, also tailored to my individual needs.
3. Recommendations as to which way to go on certain dietary restrictions and practices; are eggs good or bad, meat or no meat, keto or no, types of meditation, etc? You get so many conflicting opinions that I felt I needed a guide to help me make those decisions.
4. A supplementation/vitamin/herbal medicine schedule, tailored to my individual needs.
5. Some guidance on how to properly meditate and do yoga.
6. A plan going forward for markers in my body that I can test to ensure I am going in the right direction. I felt that at six-month intervals for MRI’s was way too far apart to tell whether what I’m doing is helping.
Doctor Elsa absolutely provided me with everything that I was seeking. In addition to this I found the counseling sessions extremely helpful and really helped me to align my path forward in this journey of health and quality of life improvement. It’s hard to articulate how important someone like this is when you’re in my situation but I can tell you that I feel extreme relief and confidence to move forward in life. I am grateful for this and I want to extend my thanks to doctor Elsa for agreeing to be part of this journey.”
