Elena Berman’s countenance, which is like a calm lake, whose surface belies the furiously glamorous, intense currents that swirl, surging “organically”, deeply below, in her beautiful, energetic, and healing soul, is a cook; motivator; innovator; nutritionist; author; tv host; educator; and health maverick, whose multi-faceted goals are to not only,heal, but also to educate, and assist all people into living better, fuller and more meaningful and complete lives via organic , unorthodox, effective, and diverse methodologies.


Even the beautiful Elena Berman tears herself away from brainstorming to club scene party every now and then.

Elena, originally from the Ukraine, has lived in America for only 9 years, but her superb meteoric ascent to fame is anything but an overnight story.  Her story is the  culmination of hard work, juxtaposed by the early dreams of a little Ukrainian girl, who learned cooking, by watching her mom; Her path traversed time and space to eventually, like a chrysalis, metamorphasize into being a beautiful, strong, caring, educated health and healing pioneer woman. She has developed, in demand, highly sought after multiple talents. Her incredible diversity has stamped its mark on the cooking; physical training; literary; lecture circuit; business management; health and wellness; medicinal and nutritional; herbology; self help; and healing industries;

Her skills have been acquired by not only traditional  educational, and threatenly painful life experiences, but also by the impact and changes brought on by those events. The results have ushered in “The Elena Berman Era”. An era in which all of Elena’s work and exploits, casts an art-like shadow on everything that  she touches.

According to Elena, “All human beings are connected”. “No one”, explained Berman, as we sat under black angry menacing looking clouds, in the Valley, at The Coffee Bean, “Can do anything in this world without the help of others.—There is a concept of “oneness ” and to be personally responsible for everything in our lives.Their are two different perspectives. From one side you don’t need anything else to achieve your goals, but your self, because the success starts from one person , who makes the design – YOU , and from another perspective , we have to live our lives for others as, an altruist,, because by living for others we do live for ourselves. We are part of “one”. By loving someone else, we love our selves and  by hurting someone else we ultimately end up hurting ourselves. Humans have a “oneness”——- I want to help people. I want to show women the incredible power that we have”. Elena expounded more fully saying that, “I love glamorous things, from sports to people to everything. My desires mandate that I pursue and expect the best and the most glamorous things in life”. I believe her as I have seen her spectacular home and her spectacular life.

Interestingly enough, I had two magazines on me that cater to weight lifters and other sports enthusiasts. Upon showing them to Elena, she enlightened me, as I showed her various protein drinks and concoctions. She spoke to me about her involvement with her tv cooking show, “Cooking With Celebrities; Her creation of an empowerment program for women called, ” The Goddess Empowerment Program”; “Your Energy Healing Arts Program(YEHA)”;  Her friend, Goltis, a former Special Forces Officer and creator of a new highly esteemed program called, “The Healing Impulse”; And finally, Elena Berman told me that she is going to be publishing a book, which she said should be read by both parents and their children together, entitled, “Tales of My Hearts”.

Elena has been successful with, not only overcoming life threatening  illnesses, by having faith and healing herself, but also she has been successful with all  her endeavors.  such as, creating her former tv pilot,” Cooking With the Celebrities”.  Elena is an intense person, but her laughter, as she giggled to some of my jokes, while  she told of her former show, with her guest Honey Blossom,  “Cooking With Celebrities”, was very endearing, uplifting, and smirk evoking… Elena explained, ‘ Food should give off  the right energy!’ Furthermore, Elena stresses, “When I invite a guest into my house, I am inviting them into my world.  I am asking them to open up and let their emotions flow into the food.  You can always tell the difference between food cooked with love and happiness and food cooked without emotions.” She is adamant that people’s’ lives can be changed through food.  I learned that she learned how to cook by watching her mom, but upon replicating exactly what her mom had done, she ended up with an exact, well made, mirror image of her mom’s recipe. However, as her mom howled with laughter, because her attempt was raw—she didn’t know how to turn on the stove to cook; little Elena became galvanized, totally undaunted, smitten with the culinary bug. And  ever since, her culinary appetites have continued to not only grow,but flourish. In fact, it has grown to such an extent that  multitudes are in awe of her cooking skills. Elena Bergman has proven that she has a recipe, that is capable of satisfying the world’s spiritual, intellectual, social, and literary palates.

Next, Elena’s, “The Goddess Empowerment Program”, is an original “recipe” that she specifically marinated with her skills, training and love, as it is designed to satisfy and empower  the creative palate of women. Elena explained, “Women have a positive sensual energy”. ‘Women’, said Berman, ‘ are sexy and must be taught to understand not only our vital roles in society, which is the ability to heal broken hearts, but also we are very sexy, and our sensual energy is both intelligent and positive’. “In addition,” Elena explained, ” Women need to be taught how to replace insecurities with strong feelings, while emitting  positive sensual energy of self worth. I want to impart within women their own “Inner Goddess”, while leading by example, and showing them that not only are they able to have a voice, pursue and accomplish their dreams, but it can be done passionately and perseveringly via a strong valuable purpose.”

Consequently, Elena Berman studied and continued to compile information and eventually, as she had acquired the spiritual embodiment  of a healer, created yet another beneficial program to help others. This program was called, ” Your Energy Healing Arts Program or YEHA”. Elena said, ‘ Yes, it is possible to live a happier, longer, life. I can show you how’. Her YEHA program is comprised of these dynamics: herbal medicines; fasting; juicing therapies; tailor-made diets based on Aurevedic principles; holistic life style based on nature’s cycles; healing impulse system, and energy balancing.  In addition, Elena’s YEHA consists of benefits derived from knowledgeably combining organically prepared foods, knowledge of beliefs and properly utilized breathing exercises, and utilizing these dynamics, as  the foundation for self healing. Elena learned to heal herself!

“One of the most extraordinary persons that I have ever met”, said Elena Berman, ” is a man who is a former Special Forces Officer, in  the U.S Army. He is, in addition to being a martial arts champion, an ex-trainer of  two world body building champions; he has been a professional coach for athletes and the disabled. His name is Goltis.She said that her knowledge of  medicinal nutrients, and information acquired via her childhood and her life experiences, in addition to her friendship with nutrition and fitness mogul, Goltis, had given her an ‘epiphany’ According to Elena, Goltis’s system—“The Healing Impulse”—— is very simple. She said, he said, it is comprised of “Opening one’s heart, exercising , dieting and using nutritionally fortified meals,and  fasting .”.Elena is the only  certified HI specialist in America . The Healing Impulse benefits are as follows: Increased muscle tone; Increased energy levels; Increases the deep vibrational frequency of the body’s cells and thus creating a state of self regeneration and healing; Cleansing the intracellular space from toxins, free radicals- decay products of metabolism and “heavy” water; Improves neural stimulation of the entire body, increasing muscular performance, coördination, and muscle tone; Normalizes your metabolic process and hormonal balance; Develops and strengthens your cardiovascular and nervous systems; Effectively and efficiently burns excess body fat; Activates your ability to quickly readjust and restore after physical as well as psychological stress; Decreases the time required for complete recuperating sleep; Normalizes  the function of all internal organs, improving digestion and metabolism; Increases your natural immunity and capacity to fight diseases=Efficient, balanced, healthy, disease free, without dysfunction or deterioration.

In conclusion, Elena is a beautiful woman, that possesses an incredible combination of brains, and spiritual heart felt brawn. She has lived a fantastic journey from The Ukraine on a vast insatiable search for the means to help people through the acquisition of unorthodox, previously unheard of,  and glamorous knowledge. This beautiful angel was introduced to me by the founder of the nonprofit organization, Exotifit for Humanity, Maria Amor. On April 28, 2011, Elena was honored by Ms. Amor, the former Ms. Asia, at an event at The Los Angeles Convention Center, honoring The Men and Women In Uniform, and various media and community leaders, such as Berman. Elena was honored with “The Role Model Award”. Berman is a stunning and almost impossible act to follow, but her life is reputable, worthy of adulation, and rife with dignity and concern for her fellow human.  This Ukrainian beauty, loaded with a gaze than can dismantle you, in my opinion, is an angel of mercy, as it seems as if she has been  ordained to help others , as all of her painful experiences have been, seemingly majestically, miraculously, and or spiritually recycled into becoming a blessing for others  instead of the “curse” from which it  painfully began and “attacked” her life. Elena and her colleagues’ revolutionary new programs, The Energy Healing Arts, The Goddess Empowerment Program, and The Healing Impulse, will and is not only empowering, changing and saving lives, but these programs and their impact may change the face of nutritional and sports medicine as we know it.

According to Elena  she is sharing her beliefs, as she is now also working on a series of books on health and healthy life styles where she encourages people, especially young people, to be wise, healthy and empower themselves to reach for their goals.  Elena’s books are a tributes to her ‘extraordinary daughter’.  Elena is  a role model for the ages, as she proves that if something is not there or if something is going wrong, find a way to change, correct, improve upon that system, and or remove the problem. Elena Berman continues to show the world that the human spirit, with faith in one’s heart, is capable of overcoming anything. Unlike former NBA basketball Hall of Fame great,Charles Barkley,——- In the brusquely forthright words of Barkley: “I’m not paid to be a role model. I’m paid to wreak havoc on the basketball court.” That observation, immortalized in a widely seen television commercial, has stirred up roughly equal measures of support and dissent.   who adamantly told the world, ‘I am not a role model’,(1)———- Elena wears the crown of role model, while she leads by example, like the self healing, GLAMOROUSLY empowering Goddess that she truly is.

Elena Berman’s traditional educational training and a few of her employment resume are as follows:(In the Ukraine and The US as an Executive and Entrepreneur)–Commercial Institute of Economy and Management; PR and TV Advertising Strategy Specialist; Commercial Advertising Lecturer in Colleges of Commerce; Akim’s Director of Commerce and Agricultural VEF’s Director of Advertising and marketing.

 Sincerely,  Skyler Stevens, Musical producer, singer)

Elena is nothing short of astonishing and somewhat a prophet. She’s a very health conscious epicurean to say the least. I personally think she’s a borderline genius and a brilliant mind when it comes to entertaining and translating her Russian cultures  and best attributes, and on the other hand,  extremely astute about American socialism. She has an uncanny way of projecting ideas with visual and tangible essences. I am thrilled with anticipation when ever she’s working on anything creative because I know the outcome will be phenomenal! This female is definitely a force to be reckoned with!

The beautiful and intensely intelligent multi-talented Elena Berman.

Written by

I was born in Fountainbleu in Paris France to an army family. My father ,Ruben Smith, and my mother Nancy Smith, worked for the Army and as a school teacher in France, respectively.We are originally from the South. My father’s people from Misissippi and Alabama and my mom’s from South Carolina. I am an avid sports fan and I attended and played sports----football, wresting, and track----- at Bishop England High School, in Charleston, South Carolina; my mom chose both a Catholic high school and an elementary school, Immaculate Conception, for my sister and I. Initially, I wasted a lot of time in school pursuing sports and partying but nevertheless,I went to the College of Charleston, The University of South Carolina, where I majored in Journalism, Advertising and Public Relations, with a minor in Theatre and Speech. I finally graduated from The University of Redlands, in Redlands, CA with a degree in business management. I managed to get into SAG-AFTRA, mostly as an extra, but I have done an occasional speaking stint here and there—CD-ROMs, experimental and industrial films, and voice overs in radio. My most recent endeavor was playing a doctor on "Grey's Anatomy". I like horror, love, thrillers, and I like to read. Weightliftingand jogging are some of my hobbies also. Interestingly enough, my family prepared me for a life on the move, as I have been to every state in The USA except for Alaska and Hawaii. I have an older sister who chose the teaching profession and is doing quite fine. What was i like as a child? Well I tend to think that I existed and flourished within "a culture of hate"--------however South Carolina has ceased and desisted with both "The jim Crow Laws' and flying the Confederate Flag------------I witnessed "colored only" bathrooms, and was in establishments where the Klan showed up. I stayed at hotels where my family and I found pounds of raw CHITTERLINS---hogs guts----- at our doorstep!! But don't get me wrong, as despite these ugly truths about the South, I grew up with some very cool whites, mexicans, Filipino's and other races. But it is what it is. It has Metamorphosized into being a cultural and real estate melting pot, as many from other states are recently flocking there for the cheaper home prices, very stable, safer lifestyle and "bible belt" mentality, and affordable education. I too have Metamorphosized , as I am not the militant little athletic, and partying freak I used to be and have settled into writing for Cold Heat News and assisting We Care for Humanity with their charitable functions. Consequently, I am pretty much a normal army brat who has realized that life is what you make it and people and things are subject to change. So change with life and let by gones be by gones. My dad has since passed away, and my mom and sister and most of my cousins are still alive, but their positive,significant influence, along with the impact my elementary and high school friends have had on me continues on;infact, I believe, where it not for my childhood friends, my high school football Coach Jack Cantey and occasional teenage battles with my dad, I would have become a gang member! Thus my personal manifesto is, Live hard, party when it is time, and utilize both education, and Love for God, and know that FAMILY AND FRIENDS are most important;They're one's conduit for a viable and happy life. ALSO, A FRIEND IN NEED IS A FRIEND---NOT A "FAIR WEATHER"------INDEED.
