New Orleans Wellness Influencer Talks Juicing & Breathwork

This wellness influencer is building generational health, one juice at a time. 

Meet Elena “Elle” Brown, a wellness influencer and New Orleans native who discovered her passion for holistic health and wellness when her daughter began struggling with severe skin issues. After working with a holistic doctor to clear her daughter’s skin, she tackled her health issues and ventured into the world of juicing. 

Elle began posting her yummy, but beneficial juicing recipes on Instagram at @GetWell.WithElle and quickly garnered a strong social media following. Since early 2022, she has been encouraging others to prioritize their health with minor changes that have a major impact. She is staying true to her newfound purpose and creating content and safe spaces for people to grow and learn about health and wellness.

Let’s learn more about Elle below: she talks about juicing, breathwork, and her start with me. 

Fancy: How did you start juicing, and why? 

Elle: I actually started juicing a few years ago as a means to increase my vitamin and mineral intake. I had always been anemic; I mean, there was never a time that I went to the doctor and my blood work came back with the proper amount of iron! It caused me to feel tired and low in energy, and I was over it! I was also self-aware enough to admit that my eating habits weren’t always the best. There were some days I would work and not realize I hadn’t eaten anything at all. Juicing was an easy, simple, and fun way to give my body the nutrients it desperately needed. Once I began to juice consistently, it helped me to boost my iron/energy levels and clear my skin, amongst other things!

Fancy: How has juicing fruits and vegetables impacted your life overall?

Elle: It’s been wonderful! I’m not sure how many people know this, but we don’t take in nearly the amount of fruit and vegetables we need to maintain the proper amount of nutrients. The CDC even recommends a daily serving of 2-3 cups of both fruits and vegetables, respectively. There are other entities that recommend even more than that! Juicing is an easy and quick way for me to get the vitamins and minerals my body needs to do things like to prevent and help fight any illnesses, boost my immune system, provide energy, and heal! 

Fancy: We know that juicing can help with symptoms of different ailments. Can you share a few examples of these? 

Elle: Yes! The vitamins and minerals you get from juicing fresh fruits and vegetables can help prevent lifestyle diseases like high blood pressure, stroke, diabetes, and heart disease. For example, there are studies that show the juice of a pomegranate may help to lower blood pressure.

Fancy: What is a good juice recipe for beginners?

Elle: There are so many good recipes! A yummy one that I always go to is Cucumber, Spinach, Apple, Lemon, and Ginger. 

Fancy: Can you tell us a little about your upcoming e-book? 

Elle: Of course! It will be a compilation of many of the fun juicing reels I’ve created and posted on social media, specifically Instagram. The recipes will be organized by the ailment it helps to support. I’m really excited about it, and I think the beautiful people who follow me will be too!

Fancy: You’re also into breathwork. For those who are unfamiliar with the practice, can you explain it?

Elle: Think about how often you go throughout your day and never even think about breathing… It’s primarily involuntary, right? Breathwork is simply the practice of intentional, deep breathing. I love it because it’s such an easy but impactful thing to practice. Breathing with intention is a great way to help reduce stress hormones, lower blood pressure, support a stronger respiratory system, boost the immune system, and just overall help redirect health issues that come from stress. 

Fancy: What tips would you share for those who may want to practice breathwork? 

Elle:

  1. Don’t overthink it! 2. Start with an easy exercise, i.e., taking a deep, slow breath in through the nose and exhaling slowly through the mouth. 3. Set a reminder on your phone to help you remember to take a deep breath.

Fancy: Your brand has really taken off in a short amount of time. To what do you attribute your success? 

Elle: Honestly, I never ever anticipated it to take off in the way it did, and it was certainly not my intention! When I began to share consistently, I was personally healing myself. My only goal was to show up for myself, share something that felt good and authentic to me, and do it joyfully. I loved practicing wellness, lived and studied it, and understood its importance, so I decided to display it. My content came from such a genuine and vulnerable place, and I believe that is the part that resonated with people. They found healing as I healed! 

Fancy: How would you describe your swagher? What makes Elle, Elle?

Elle: Ha! I would describe my swag as genuine, kind, funny, and a lil sassy!
