After nearly thirty years of research and study with some of the finest holistic medical doctors world-wide Elena Upton is curating her knowledge and experience into an on-going eBook series, as well as the print books THE ALTERNATIVE, Your Family’s Guide to Wellness; Volumes I & II.


“As a wife and mother, I was frustrated by the choices available to me for my own health care and that of my family. When I discovered Homeopathy in 1988 I knew I had found a better way. Going back to college when I had the responsibility of a family was not easy, but I knew it would be worth it.

Within a relatively short period of time I found answers to my health issues, that of my sons, and also my husband. It was like opening a magical toolbox and I wanted everyone to know this toolbox existed.

With the support of my family I was able to spend more than a decade studying not only Homeopathy, but German Biological Medicine, Gemmotherapy, Organotherapy, Phenolic Therapy, and more. Opening a clinic gave me the experience of understanding the power of what I had learned.”


The journey began at The British Institute of Homeopathy where Upton trained with Trevor Cook, previous Homeopath to the Queen of England, Dr. Ifeoma Ikenze, and Dr. Richard Hiltner, among other giants in the field.

This solid foundation was followed by a Masters, then Doctorate program at Curentur University with more exceptional Homeopaths including Dr. Roger Morrison, Dr. Jonathan Shore, Dr. Richard Moskowitz and many others.

Further education continued with a two-year Master Clinician Course with the well-known Homeopath, author and lecturer, Louis Klein of Canada.

The next ten years included seminars, workshops and lectures with Dr. Rajan Sankaran of India, Dr. Massimo Mangialovori, M.D. of Italy and Dr. Jan Scholten, M.D., and Robin Murphy, N.D., to name a few.

Upton developed a successful clinic, ‘The Holistic Resource Center’ in Southern California for a number of years with her then partner Dr. Craig Wagstaff (1955-2012).

Her practice extends to include many modern uses of Homeopathy, as well as German Biological Medicine and other holistic modalities.
