Dr Helena

Boosting your brain.

Our decisions are more powerful than our DNA.

Dr Helena Popovic MBBS is a medical doctor and international speaker who shows people how to boost their brain at any age or stage of life so they can:
• perform at their peak throughout their career
• eliminate brain fog in menopause
• avoid Alzheimer’s and other dementias in retirement.

She also provides a roadmap for living longer, stronger, healthier and happier. Dr Helena graduated from the University of Sydney and has spent over 30 years researching the brain and teaching people how to reach their full potential.

Discovering how to boost our brains is the single most important investment we can make to achieve our goals, solve complex problems and create a fulfilling life.

Dr Helena’s philosophy is that education is more powerful than medication and she believes in growing bolder rather than older.

She is the author of three best-selling books:
1. In Search of My Father is a guide to caring for someone with dementia.
2. Adventure Prevents Dementia shows how we can all build a better brain.
3. and NeuroSlimming - Let Your Brain Change Your Body reveals how to shed excess body fat without dieting or deprivation.

Dr Helena espouses slow ageing despite fast living and she delivers highly effective wellness and peak performance programs to organisations of all sizes. She is one of Australia’s most popular conference opening speakers.

Helena's presentation was incredibly inspiring. Her approach towards 'Let Healing Happen' was full of wit, empathy, energy, and hope. She is an engaging speaker and I would highly recommend her. Jean Colvin Cancer Centre

I invited Helena Popovic to speak at the recent Sphinxx Ascend Development Day series and received fantastic feedback from the audience on her presentation. Helena wowed participants with her knowledge of physiological wellbeing, peak performance and brain plasticity... and if you're scratching your head at these terms, don't worry: you will be enlightened by Helena's presentation. She's a funny, intelligent and polished speaker and I recommend her to any audience that seeks to perform at its best.


Helena is the most extraordinary person I have ever had the pleasure to meet. I have never known anyone who is so positive about everything they undertake, and her enthusiasm for everything she does is infectious. She throws herself into her work with passion and drive and she has the unique ability to motivate, captivate and inspire those around her. I find her spirit uplifting. Anything is possible with energy and enthusiasm. Helena is a testament to that. She is a truly inspiring individual.

We were so pleased to have Dr Helena present the closing keynote at our Independents’ Day conference. The audience of around 300 business owners were glued to their seats in one of the finest presentations I have seen in years. Helena is skilled, highly polished, engaging and eminently practical in her delivery. Thank you!
