My name is Alexandra Gellman and here is a brief biography.
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. After a busy career in sales and association management for leading international hotel chains, I followed my passion for health and wellness.
In 1996 I started my own practice, Guru and Associates Wellness Inc., offering holistic programs with a focus on nutrition, homeopathy, stress management, and healing emotional concerns and disappointments. My aim is to inspire passion within individuals, families, and groups to embrace preventative health to improve quality of life.
I am dedicated to life-long learning and have a Ph.D in Integrative Medicine and am a Diabetic Educator. I utilize 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 personal consultations and action plans.
“Homeopathy cures a larger percentage of cases than any other form of treatment and is beyond doubt safer and more economical.”
I created the Stress Age Questionnaire, which has been featured in 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 individuals, teams, and groups.
In 2014 I completed the Cancer Prevention Program at the Edison Institute of Nutrition with the designation Certified Cancer Prevention Coach. I am now taking this to the workplace to help overcome this horrid condition.
I have often been asked to share my expertise by print publications and am always happy to offer guidance and tips. I have appeared extensively on TV and radio media, and presented as a keynote speaker at numerous corporate and health conventions.
I will be very pleased to help you on your quest for wellness and self-actualization to be the best you can be… physically, mentally, and spiritually. Please let me know if you’re interested in more information about individual counselling or sessions (in-person and online), workshops, or group/company programs when these are once again possible. I’m happy to help! Alex
