Elena Brull, Founder & CEO

Elena is CEO of the Online Media Platform for Integrative Medicine, Lifestyle, and Beauty, BeMedique LLC.

Why BeMedique?

Elena has always been passionate about helping people. She created the Online Media Platform BeMedique in order to help educate and advocate for better quality of life, and to bring experts and practitioners together with those looking for guidance.

The progress in the scientific field of genetics, biomedicine, and psychology has led Elena to believe that every health issue can be predicted, analyzed, and avoided. She is convinced that the alignment between different medical and scientific disciplines, including Traditional Eastern Medicine, can significantly improve the healing process.

Acupuncture, botanical and natural medicine, diet, and the awareness of the power of the mind and emotions is a major component for strengthening the self-healing power of the human body. However, today all of these fields are separated. With BeMedique, Elena has brought these fields together, creating a platform of interdisciplinary education, information, and tools. In addition, BeMedique has filled the void in what she saw as the biggest issue—preventative care.

Elena believes that education about lifestyle choices, nutrition, personal attitude, and personal growth is the first step helping people prevent the development of chronic and serious health problems.
