About Dr. Elena Koles, MD, Ph D

Dr. Elena Koles is an integrative physician with extensive postgraduate training in immunology, allergy, hematology, clinical biochemistry, neuropathology and neuroscience. She completed her Residency at Marshall University Medical School (WV) and gained more experience in a two-year fellowship at Cook County Hospital in Chicago. Elena Koles completed a special DAN! training course at Autism Research Institute. She is a member of the American Academy of The Environmental Medicine, completed the special courses in allergy and chemical sensitivity testing and treatment.

Since then, she's been in private practice, helping patients in the Chicagoland area and nationwide overcome chronic degenerative diseases and improve their quality of life.

In her practice, Dr. Koles combines comprehensive western medicine and many pearls from unique integrative healing protocols created around the world. To deepen her knowledge of alternative medicine, Dr Koles obtained training in applied kinesiology (BioSET technique), orthomolecular and herbal therapy, and nutritional counseling. Her medical practice embraces a potpourri of natural healing techniques, especially for problems associated with food sensitivity and other allergies, low immunity, chronic fatigue, digestive and metabolic disorders, as well as weight and sleep disturbances.

Working with patients' health problems, Dr. Koles pays a great deal of attention to stress and relaxation because over-stimulated immune and nervous systems can lead to inhibition of defense functions and cause allergic and inflammatory diseases such as asthma, arthritis, colitis, myositis, migraines, sleep problems, etc. To understand our body as a whole system, in which all organs and tissues collaborate for the body's optimal health, we need to appreciate specifically coordinated rhythms of work and rest. Environmental toxins are poisons for human health, therefore, detoxifying, ozone and chelation treatments work for many patients with different chronic diseases.

In her practice, Dr. Koles concentrates on her patients' life style and environment, and makes recommendation for proper changes in diet, habits, chelation, supplementation and so on.

Dr. Koles' special clinical interests are environmental toxins, neurotransmitters and general metabolism in behavior and degenerative CNS disorders and their response to dietary regime, supplements and emotions.

Before coming to the United States, Dr. Koles worked at the National Cancer Research Center in Moscow for 15 years. She holds a Ph.D. in Oncology from the National Cancer Center and a Bachelor of Science Degree in Clinical Diagnostics. Dr Koles has also undergone further training in Germany, Sweden, Switzerland and at UCLA. She conducted multiple research projects with other physicians and universities.
