Our founder, Dasha Maximov, is a former-management consultant in mergers and acquisitions turned health explorer. While studying for her masters in neuroscience, Dasha suffered a debilitating brain injury which resulted in constant fatigue, chronic headaches, amnesia, electrohypersensitivity, and depression. Specialists across the globe offered reductionist approaches and outdated recommendations that were not backed in science. Her last brain injury was, ironically, when she was doing her masters in neuroscience. Knowing about the brain and feeling the frustration of shrugged shoulders from her doctors, led her on a path of health exploration to take control of her health and educate herself on alternative ways to heal her brain.
In 2019, after healing many of her immediate pains via natural hacks, Dasha turned to bring this information to others by being on of the lad organizers of the Health Optimisation Summit, Europe’s largest alternative and preventative health conference. Quickly she saw that a gap existed in the health world surrounding women-specific health topics.
To solve this, she, along with other incredible women, ideated the idea of a women’s collective. This idea then grew into WhealthCo, an online global community focused on evidence based science for women. The online forum bridges together doctors, researchers, healers and ‘laywomen’ to focus specifically on knowledge sharing about women’s health issues. Each week the forum has guest doctors and researchers provide answers to members’ questions.
Dasha believes that health is best achieved when a person is informed about their options and that this is possible only through connecting together and learning from each other. A problem is solved much quicker when there are diverse perspectives looking at it from multiple angles.
