The Story of Fran, Who Healed from Severe Pain, Fatigue, Insomnia, and Anxiety…
If you have followed us, you’ve heard me say, “You are NOT broken. There ARE answers, and there ARE solutions!” And the clients who we have had the honor of working with have been able to personally witness this truth because they chose us as their guides to show them how they can heal, no matter how old they are or how long they had been sick.
It’s not news that people around the world are sicker than they have ever been with chronic disease and brain-related conditions of every kind showing up at alarmingly high rates, higher than we have ever seen. It’s obvious that the medical system is broken. People are now more aware that prescriptions and surgeries, while life-saving for emergencies, offer no cures for almost any symptom, condition, or disease, especially when the only solution offered is prescription medications or surgery.
The good news is that there ARE solutions that are reversing chronic illnesses, and these solutions are natural. And best of all, these solutions are truly working to help people heal themselves from their chronic conditions.
Today I want to share with you a case study from one of our clients, Fran. Fran is a 65-year-old female who came to us after having suffered with many symptoms and conditions for well over 5 years. She had severe symptoms including inflammation, joint pain, loss of strength, anxiety, fatigue, insomnia, and a few more. On a scale of 0 to 10, most of her symptoms were rated as most severe (10). Take a look at her symptom sheet below…
Staying Motivated on Your Healing Journey
by Ann Hutyra, Lead Biological Health Coach
Anyone who has had a major health crash and struggled to regain their health will tell you that staying motivated can often be a big challenge. Feeling like all of your time and energy is going to healing can leave little time for anything else. If you’re a parent, have a job, or run a household (or all of the above) the healing process can actually start to feel like a big burden. If you find yourself in this space, I think it’s important that you step back and take a long, hard look at your mindset.
When I experienced my own health crash ten years ago, and then worked to heal and regain my vitality, I found myself really frustrated with the process. I was 32 at the time and had just had my daughter when my physical issues came to a head. I experienced intense rashes all over my body, extreme exhaustion, major gut symptoms, panic attacks, and depression. I’ll admit, the gut issues had been present for years, back into childhood – but I thought my chronic constipation, constant bloating, and daily headaches were actually normal. I had experienced those symptoms for as long as I could remember, so for me, they were normal. I had learned to adapt.
At the time of my daughter’s birth, I was working a very high-stress job for an affiliate of a major news network. I worked 9 to 12 hours a day, and was live on-air in front of a camera for an hour and a half Monday through Friday and sometimes on weekends. I spent my days covering the drug war on the Texas-Mexico border and witnessed my fair share of murder scenes, crime, and violence. When I wasn’t working, I was constantly on the go. I spent 2 hours a day in the gym or running (sometimes 10 miles a day), I ate very little, and my sleep was horrible. Adding a pregnancy and a newborn into the mix, my body reached its breaking point.
“When I thought all hope was lost, I found Dr V…”
I came to Modern Holistic Health after several years of specialists visits who did nothing to help me other than prescribe more and more medications which produced more and more side effects. I felt the worst I ever have in my life.
I was less than 50 years old and I was suffering with severe rheumatoid arthritis, Hashimoto’s, migraines, anxiety and depression, and hormone imbalances.
Between the symptoms of the illnesses and the side effects of the medications, I was forced to retire from a career that I spent my entire life earning a doctoral degree and several certifications and licenses for. When I thought all hope was lost, I found Dr V on a webinar. After hearing her personal story and her passion for helping and educating others, I knew I needed to be a client at Modern Holistic Health.
Being in the 12-Month Body & Brain Program was the best decision I could have made. Everyone on the team has been helpful and encouraging throughout the program. I am just embarking on month 9 and entering gut repair. Although I have some additional detoxing to do, I have cleared many of the heavy metals and toxins from my body.
My cholesterol and weight have lowered tremendously. I have also been able to lower and eliminate the need for some prescription medications. I am far from being finished but am well on my way to a much healthier and happier individual and I owe it all to Dr V and the amazing coaches at MHH! I am forever grateful for their support and assistance.

This MHH client shares her “miracle”
A miracle just happened last week! And I’m grateful to Dr. V and all the team at Modern Holistic Health for their help in bringing my son back!
I found out about Dr. V thru watching a webinar about brain health and later learned about her 12-month Brain/Body Mastery Program.
Just a recap of my previous review:
About 3 years ago my son’s health declined rapidly — he was losing weight, felt weak and fatigued, had fibromyalgia-like pain in different parts of his body, strange rashes, loss of memory and focus, severe constipation, and another symptom I did not mention was his loss of bladder control. He definitely was not happy!
So he started the program last summer. I was slow in getting him started with protocols, lagging about 1-2 months behind. But after 3 months all his pain was gone and most of his symptoms were improving. After about 6 months we retested and all the toxins [lab results] went down, especially the heavy metal thallium was back to a normal range! Then by month 9 he started gaining weight, about a pound a month! I was thrilled because he was really underweight, 81 lbs at his lowest weight! And all his symptoms had improved except for his urinary incontinence while asleep.
Then about 2 weeks ago he finally completed his 3 months of gut repair and came up to me one night and said he wanted to discuss how he can “pee less in bed and pee more while awake.” He said he thinks he can feel the need to go while in bed now. So he said he’s going to try to get up and go to the bathroom during the night.
Well, that night he slept through the night about 13 hours and then woke up the next day….and was DRY!!! And he’s been fine every day after that too! My prayers have been answered!
So he’s finished with the 12-month program. And even though we were a few months behind in completing all the protocols outlined in Dr. V’s MHH Academy, just like clockwork after completing his gut repair, he was healed!
Thank you Dr. V, all the staff at MHH, and most of all I thank God for the miracle that happened! I have my son back and he can move on with his life now!

Client eliminates seemingly impossible problems with help from MHH team
I have been a client of Modern Holistic Health for almost a year now, and recommend this group of health specialists and coaches as by far the best practice available for those who have chronic health conditions that most other practitioners are unable to help with.
MHH is truly world-class and has helped me reduce and eliminate seemingly impossible problems! MHH is headed by Dr. Elena Villanueva, who has brought together a TRULY COMPREHENSIVE and research-based health program that helps move your health to a higher level.
In my case, I had some difficult problems that various doctors were unable to help with, including high levels of toxins such as mold, heavy metals, and others that led to a variety of symptoms, ill health, brain fog, and stubborn resistance to normal therapies and treatments. I spent many months researching all the various programs offered by functional and holistic practitioners, and found that Modern Holistic Health had put together the only truly comprehensive systematic holistic program available.
If you are like me and find that you have chronic conditions that are seemingly intractable, MHH is the one you need! After going through their comprehensive program, my periodic lab tests showed HUGE progress in reducing and eliminating all the toxins that were affecting my health, including the mold, heavy metals, and all the various other environmental toxins many of us are affected by in modern society. THIS IS CRITICAL because it addresses the true underlying causes of chronic conditions and helps your body step up its natural disease fighting immune systems.
As I move forward now, I know I still have more to do, but it is so encouraging to see that this program has made possible all future progress toward the state of health I want to reach as I age. The combination of a great diet, all the detox protocols in the program, and the many other actions they recommend give you the power to truly recover and achieve greater energy and wellness.
By the way, in addition to Dr. Villanueva’s smart synthesis of existing holistic health program into a comprehensive program approach, her staff of health coaches is truly excellent! These health professionals provide excellent guidance every step of the way. I would especially point out the world-class coaching by Ann Hutyra because she was my primary coach, but I definitely notice the high quality of ALL their coaches.
In short, I have been researching alternative health programs for many years, and I believe that if you are frustrated by chronic health conditions Modern Holistic Health is the BEST. Deep thanks to all their staff and coaches!

Are You Ruining Your Face?
Many of you have been asking what skincare products I use daily or if I have advice on clean, effective skincare. So I wanted to quickly share what I learned is actually going on in the skin care industry, and why Annmarie Skin Care is one of my go-to’s for clean, organic, effective skincare products.
There’s no question that there are a lot of chemicals in our skincare products. Many companies are working to clean up their act, but they’re still replacing the commonly known toxic chemicals with new unknown chemicals. Just one example is fragrance. Even if the label reads “natural fragrance,” this doesn’t make their products any safer. The International Fragrance Association allows traces of synthetic ingredients (solvents, antioxidants, preservatives) to be listed as natural fragrances.
The lack of transparency and honesty in the industry is pretty disheartening. It’s also why I was so excited to find Annmarie Skin Care.
This company ticked all the boxes for me. They began with the sole purpose of providing skincare products that are free of chemicals and synthetic ingredients, and list all of their ingredients on their labels. They’re MADE SAFE® certified—a seal that ensures the product is made with safe ingredients, without the +6,500 toxic chemicals on their blocklist known to harm our health.
After some experimenting with their different products, I can say I really do like them, and I like the price too… I think it’s very reasonable for the quality of the product and how it nourishes my skin.
All their products include curated organic and wildcrafted ingredients with many high-quality rare herbs and high-vibration plant extracts that are incredibly effective.
They’ve created this exclusive offer for $19.99, only for my community.
- Aloe Herb Cleanser (1oz)
- Neroli Toning Mist (1oz)
- Anti-Aging Serum (5ml)
- One sample of the Anti-Aging Facial Oil
- FREE shipping (for US and Canadian residents only)
- 100% money-back promise if you are not satisfied with your order
- $10 coupon for a future purchase
For $19.99, you can get the absolute best for your skin and experience 4 of my favorite Annmarie Skin Care products. This is an exclusive deal created only for this community and cannot be found on the Annmarie Skin Care website.

I LOVE this toothpaste!
But to be honest?
Finding a really solid all-natural oral care routine has been one of the hardest nuts to crack. Yes, there are some “clean’ brands out there like Tom’s (without fluoride) but honestly, it makes me want to gag… I can’t stand the texture.
Then I’ve tried others that just don’t really clean my teeth well or keep my teeth white.
Then one of my clients told me about Wellnesse Toothpaste, and now I’m hooked on this one! Plus I love that they have a children’s toothpaste. I got one for my grandkids to try. 🙂
Not only do their toothpastes really work, but they’re also all-natural and truly non-toxic. Plus, they are also fluoride-free, glycerin-free, gluten-free, GMO-free, and cruelty-free.
Did I also mention that all Wellnesse ingredients are organic whenever possible, ethically sourced, and their packaging is 100% recyclable, EWG verified, biodegradable, or compostable?
If you are still looking around for a toothpaste you love, I’d love for you to be one of the first to try Wellnesse’s NEW Oral Care line. It’s a bundle of their Whitening Toothpaste, Charcoal Toothpaste, and their 3-ingredient antimicrobial Dental Floss!
Here’s how the system works:
- Brush twice daily with the remineralizing Whitening Toothpaste (I’d recommend using Wellnesse’s biodegradable toothbrush!)
- Give your teeth a boost 2-3 times per week with the Charcoal Toothpaste
- Floss twice daily with the all-natural Dental Floss
Together, you get a trifecta of remineralization, detoxification, and antimicrobial action, leaving your mouth feeling cleaner than ever (the all-natural way).
Try it for yourself and see what I mean! Here’s to a brighter, whiter smile you can feel good about. You can thank me later 🙂
P.S. They also offer discounted subscription options, so you can save money and get your products shipped to you automatically!
P.P.S. They honor free returns and exchanges, so there’s no risk for you. Plus, these tubes last forever! See for yourself.
