Meet Dr. Elena Villanueva, DC – “Dr. V”

Chief Integrative Health Coach and Brain Health Specialist

Elena Villanueva is an internationally recognized health coach and crusader for ending the global mental health crisis and educating the public and other health professionals that mental health conditions are actually ‘brain health’ issues and when the underlying causes are found, the brain health conditions can be reversed.

Elena’s expertise is in helping individuals find and address the underlying cause of their depression, anxiety, memory loss, Parkinson’s, and other mental health disorders and disease.

Elena and her team have helped thousands to restore their health.  Dr. Villanueva and her team help people support and restore many health conditions that include chronic mental health disorders and disease, autoimmune disorders, Lyme disease, gastrointestinal disorders, male and female hormone imbalances, Type II diabetes, genetic defects (including MTHFR), insomnia, metabolic syndrome, and other health conditions.

Dr. V is passionate about learning and utilizing cutting-edge technology for uncovering the root causes of chronic illness and disease.  By using a data-driven and genetic data approach, she and her team analyze underlying issues with their clients to precisely create personalized programs that target and heal the source of chronic conditions.

It was through her own experience in suffering severe mental and physical illness where the traditional western medicine approach had no answers or solutions,  that she developed a keen passion for the non traditional approach of holistic medicine.

Dr. Villanueva is a native Texan and has a strong enthusiasm for participating in almost anything outdoors with her best friend, husband, and partner, Greg, and their dog Riley. When she’s not educating and coaching, you’ll find her mountain biking, hiking, camping, wake surfing, skiing, and spending as much time outdoors as she can.

If she doesn’t know you already, she can’t wait to meet you and start your journey of healing.

Amme Hutyra Health Coach

Meet Ann Hutyra

Integrative Health Coach

Ann Hutyra is a certified holistic health coach who focuses on ‘food as medicine,’ and studied at the Institute for Integrative Nutrition.

Ann’s passion for health and wellness began with her own journey with autoimmune disease. After decades of dealing with symptoms like fatigue, bloating and digestive issues, anemia, migraines, brain fog and joint pain, she was finally diagnosed with Dermatitis Herpetiformis, or the skin manifestation of Celiac Disease. Ann adopted a gluten free lifestyle, and saw her health drastically improve. She dropped close to 30 pounds, and saw dozens of symptoms she had dealt with for decades go away. But her journey didn’t stop there. A few years later she was diagnosed with Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis, and knew she had to make additional lifestyle changes.

Ann became a patient of Dr. Villanueva, and found the support she needed to heal her body through food and supplements. In 12 short months, Ann reversed her thyroid condition, and reached a level of health she had never experience before. This inspired her to become certified as a health coach, and help others achieve optimal health.

Ann has studied a variety of dietary theories and practical lifestyle coaching methods, and specializes in the gluten free and paleo lifestyles. Ann spent 15 years as a Journalist and TV News Anchor, working in a fast-paced and demanding newsroom environment. This taught her how important it is to manage stress and get quality sleep, and she teaches her clients techniques to help balance these areas of their lives. She works with her clients to co-create completely personalized actions based on their goals, and helps them move toward their ideal vision of health.

In her down time, Ann loves to cook and bake, and shares her recipes and foodie finds with her social media followers. As a mom to a 7-year-old, she enjoys the challenge of finding creative ways to teach kids to eat healthy. She’s a long-distance runner, having completed several marathons over the years, and makes yoga a regular part of her wellness routine.

Stacey Loop

Meet Stacey Loop

Trauma and Stress Release Breath Work Practitioner and Nutrition Coach

Stacey Loop is a certified yoga therapist and holistic health coach who specializes in helping people who are struggling with the effects of anxiety, panic, depression, mind racing, sleep issues, and neurosensory disorders (common in those who have autism spectrum disorders).

She uses the tools of therapeutic breath, movement, meditation, diet, and physical activity to address an individual’s condition and works with clients to assist them in making gradual, yet significant lifestyle changes that will support and influence their healing.

It takes courage and strength to change and break free from habits and constraints, which can prevent one from reaching total health and potential. She understands each individual has the power to promote self-healing when unconscious patterns are examined and one is given the tools, encouragement, and guidance to thrive and feel whole again.

Her personal journey of holistic healing began when her son was diagnosed with Sensory Processing Disorder. After finding no solutions from the traditional medical model she became intrigued by the ancient teachings of yoga and holistic health.

In nearly 17 years, Stacey has taught over 2,500 classes in teacher training, special education topics, therapeutic privates, mentoring, and public classes.  Stacey has co-written the curriculum Children’s Yoga Therapy Training and leads teachers in this certification program as well as training in other programs involving therapeutic aspects of yoga, including meditation.

Stacey finds deep satisfaction in being of service to others. Outside of work, she spends time daily in her own yoga and meditation practice. One of her favorite pastimes is cultivating stillness by connecting to nature and she dances weekly with her father in Parkinson’s Dance classes.

Stacey looks forward to meeting you and assisting you along your journey!

Kimberly Ross

Meet Kimberly Ross

Integrative Holistic Health Coach

Kimberly Ross is a certified holistic health coach after studying at the Institute for Integrative Nutrition with a passion for helping families live their best lives.

Kimberly’s passion for health and wellness began with her drive to help her five sons to live a life she so desperately wanted them to have. After her oldest developed a chronic rash and short term memory loss, she realized that creams and pills would not help. Following her gut instinct, she pursued a more holistic path to help them. Over the next few years she slowly added her other children to the holistic medicine path treating conditions from PANS and Lyme disease to chemical toxicity. Using food as medicine, Kimberly and her children were able to see improvements after years of struggling. However, In 2016, Kimberly was suffering herself and was later diagnosed with Lyme disease and Mast Cell Activation Disorder. After beginning her treatment, she soon realized her family was exposed to toxic mold and how much it was affecting their health and wellbeing. During this troubling time, she conceived her fifth son and moved from their home they were living in with mold after 4 years. After a rather hard pregnancy and delivery of her fifth son, Kimberly developed Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis from the years of exposure to mold and chronic infections.

Even through the pain and suffering of seeing her children struggle with condition after condition, functional medicine helped Kimberly and her family to reach a place of healing. It gave her hope she didn’t once have with conventional medicine. Now 3 years later, they are living a life with the knowledge that the body can heal itself when you just listen to what it is saying. Using food as a way to love your body and having grace every day to push forward on this journey.

When Kimberly isn’t a busy mother of five, she enjoys time outside hiking or camping, and trying new recipes that are nutritious and kid friendly. She enjoys gardening and learning new ways to make a holistic lifestyle cost efficient and effective for every family.
