Do you notice a cyclical nature of repeating patterns in your life that you don’t want?
Have you ever noticed that friend or family member who for 10, 20, or even 30 years has been dealing with the same issues that keep happening in their life? Perhaps it’s a friend who always ends up with a partner who has the same bad habits as all his or her previous partners? Perhaps it’s the same old story about how they got into the same bad situation (for the 10th time)?
Maybe you find yourself caught in certain loops but you can’t figure out why it keeps happening to you over and over again… and you can’t help but wonder “Why me” or “Not again!”
For most of us, whenever something negative happens, our first instinct is to brush it off as just a random incident, or we’ll place blame on something else for why it happened.
The second time we see it happen, we may still do the same. The third time, we might think it’s simply a coincidence…
Other times the cycle might continue 4, 5, 6, or more times before we start to become aware of what’s beneath the recurring pattern that keeps bringing us back to the same situation over and over again. And then sometimes, if we are paying attention, we begin to become aware that there might be something going on that’s attracting these situations.
While some might think of these recurring negative experiences as being a victim of circumstance, punishment, or even a curse, the reality is that these recurring circumstances we no longer desire keep popping up over and over because we keep creating them.
It’s a reflection of our beliefs, our thoughts, and our emotions that lead to actions that result in the same outcomes over and over.
All Things Pumpkin
by Ann Hutyra, Lead Biological Health Coach
Fall is one of my absolute favorite times of the year! Our hot Texas Summers finally cool down, the holidays are on the horizon, and all the beautiful pumpkins and gourds start showing up at my neighborhood grocery store. Not only are pumpkins and winter squash a beautiful addition to a thanksgiving centerpiece, but they’re also full of so many amazing nutrients!
Here’s a rundown of the nutritional benefits of the most common winter squash and pumpkins you’ll find this season:
- Spaghetti squash – high in beta carotene, high in Vitamin A, great pasta substitute!
- Butternut squash – helps regulate blood pressure, improves digestion, boosts immunity
- Acorn squash – rich in dietary fiber, Vitamins C, A, and B, and essential minerals like magnesium, potassium, copper, and calcium
- Pumpkin – contains Vitamins A, E, C, K, and B6, boosts immunity, promotes weight loss
- Pumpkin seeds – an excellent source of minerals like iron, magnesium and zinc, protein, and fiber
If you’re a fan of the pumpkin spice craze like I am, it can be hard to pass up all the product options you see at your neighborhood coffee shop and grocery store – pumpkin spice lattes, pumpkin scones, and muffins, pumpkin bread, and pancakes. Store varieties of these products are typically full of unhealthy ingredients like processed sugars, refined wheat flour, and chemical preservatives – and often lack actual pumpkin, and instead, use artificial pumpkin flavor. It is possible to avoid all the processed sugars and empty calories and make pumpkin-inspired treats at home. Check out some of my own recipes below, inspired by the season!
“I am so much more comfortable in my own body,” says MHH client, Lois
I am nearing the end of my first year of working with Modern Holistic Health. It has been an incredible journey of restoring good health. After viewing an Inflammation Masterclass online by Dr. V and the team of Health Coaches, it was evident their path to wellness was tried and true based on case studies and evidence provided in the presentations.
Years (or decades) of searching for answers through allopathic and some alternative routes left me with many questions and few results. “Age related” symptoms continued to rob me of vitality. Soon after embarking on Dr. V’s protocols and dietary recommendations, my symptoms began to improve.
Joint pain in my back disappeared, sleep is deeper, hormone health is improving, focus has improved, mind racing at a minimum. I am so much more comfortable in my own body. Testing has shown that the toxin and mold levels in my body have significantly decreased allowing me to actually begin to heal and regain my health.
This program delivers and it works if you work it.
I have had the honor of working one on one with several of the coaches and they are all very knowledgeable, gifted, supportive and each one an integral part of my healing journey. I am so grateful for the progress I have made, and their dedication to helping individuals regain their health. I look forward to working with Modern Holistic Health [for] a second year to optimize.

What do you do when you feel stuck?
by Ann Hutyra, Lead Biological Health Coach
Do you ever just feel “stuck” in your healing journey? You’re not getting any worse, but things aren’t getting better either. Or maybe you’ve already healed most of your physical issues, but you feel stuck mentally or emotionally. I’ve been going through this recently in my own journey – feeling very “blah” and unmotivated, despite my physical body feeling pretty darn good.
Being a practitioner, and having a history of autoimmune thyroid disease, I immediately thought something must be “wrong” with my physical body. So I ran a thyroid panel, which came back optimal. I ran a hormone and adrenal panel, which also came back looking good. And then a full blood lab, which also showed nothing significant. What was I missing? I mulled over this question for a while, before deciding to run a bioenergetic scan on myself.
My scan results were very telling. One of the items that showed up for me was the bladder meridian – an energy pathway in the body that’s connected to our eyes, our spine, the back of the knees, kidneys, and bladder. Blockages in this meridian can cause symptoms like water retention, thyroid and hormone imbalance, and bladder/kidney issues. All of those symptoms I had experienced in one way or another at some point in my healing journey and was currently dealing with slight water retention all over my body.
But what really resonated with me was that from an emotional perspective, FEAR was associated with blockages in this meridian. I started thinking about the role fear played in my life, both currently and in the past – and I had a few things come up for me. Was FEAR at the root of my current feelings of “blah” and lack of motivation?
MHH client Jenny is invested in her healing program and “empowered”
Finding Dr. V and starting my program at Modern Holistic Health was a blessing. After trying different therapies, going to different doctors, having test results with “normal” values, taking different drugs that didn’t work but made me feel worse and no one looking for the root causes of my symptoms, I lost hope. I felt like I couldn’t find the way out of this nightmare. I experienced so many symptoms but my panic attacks were the worst; they were so frequent, intense and devastating that my life was falling apart until I listened to Dr. V in one of the masterclasses.
She was so inspiring and gave me the hope that I lost for so many years, engraving in my mind that I wasn’t broken, that the root cause of my symptoms was something outside of me, not me and that I could turn my health around 180 degrees if I really put the effort I deserved on me. My first assessment call with Ann made me 100% sure that I was on the right path to health.
I am now in month 11 of my program happily repairing my gut. I am a work in progress, struggling with a few symptoms (the majority of them are gone); I haven’t experienced any panic attacks for the last few weeks. With this program I achieved in a few months what I didn’t achieve in 10+ years before.
This program is one of the best investments I could have done and has provided me with everything I need to take my own health back. I found the root causes. I learned different modalities, tools, techniques, to live a healthier lifestyle, to be mindful, to be present in body, mind and spirit, to pay attention to my mindset, all of that in synergy helped me overcome the symptoms I experienced.
The best is the team at MHH, especially my knowledgeable caring coaches. Thank you, Ann and Haleigh, for always being there to support me in my healing journey. You both, along with Dr. V, empower me with the feeling that I can overcome anything, that everything is possible, and that soon I will be achieving the thriving health I desire with all the knowledge and support you all provide.
I don’t know what else to say, besides the fact that I am so deeply grateful that my path crossed yours.

The #1 Most Overlooked Root Causes of Chronic Illness
In this interview with Dr. Daniel Cardellichio, Dr. V deep dives into the #1 overlooked root cause of chronic illness, chronic pain, and mental health disorders. Listen in as Dr. Dan and I discuss how our thoughts, emotions, words, unresolved emotions, and trauma can be the deepest root cause of why people get sick and are unable to heal.
Daniel’s commitment to his health and healing was the key to learning how to heal himself with support from the MHH coaches…
I have been following Dr. V and Modern Holistic Health for 3 years now and joined Dr. V’s program 2 years ago. I want to share my experience as I hope it will inspire others.
First of all, it was Dr. V’s personal story that resonated with me. I too, had been sick for many years without any answers from my doctors. I started researching for more holistic ways of healing and stumbled into my first summit from another doctor where I heard Dr. V and several other experts speak on the subject of autoimmunity, leaky gut, and mental health issues.
During my consultation they went over my intake forms, asked some questions and then recommended their 12 month program and some lab work. I decided to give it a try because their refund policy is amazing… they promise if you don’t see any results after going through their entire 12 month program (following all their recommendations of course) that they will refund you, minus the cost of the labs… I don’t know about you but that had me sold! Also seeing Dr. V’s case studies in her masterclasses also gave me confidence too.
I completed her program about a year ago and had excellent results. Most of my symptoms when I started were around an 8 out of 10 — they were bad. My symptoms included fatigue, depression, constipation and other gut issues, psoriasis, my hair was thinning, I had sleep issues, joint pain, and thyroid issues that the doctors could never seem to fix.
9 months into my program I started to really feel amazing with my symptoms – all of them — down to 2’s and 3’s which was a huge win for me!! I learned that addressing my barriers to healing was the only way my body would heal and that it WOULD heal once I addressed my root causes! Dr. V and her team were so right! It did take some time but like they said would happen, my body healed itself! It wanted to… there were just barriers like toxins and even emotional toxins stuck inside me that needed to come out.
Fast forward to today, I am still feeling great and am so grateful for Dr. V’s approach of mentoring and guiding and teaching us how to take control of our own health, how to read our own labs, and how to put our own protocols together… and how to track our own data so we could see our progress. And the materials in her program are GOLD! And her team of practitioners really do love teaching all of us and are truly invested in teaching us in our classes, how to heal ourselves.
Dr. V and her team also taught me that my health really IS an investment, not a ‘cost’ or ‘expense’ and I really appreciate how she really has been working on bringing costs down over the years so that more people can get help! Even her old pricing was still worth the investment because I got my health and my life back!

Harvard Study Shows Link Between Trauma And Disease
If you’ve been addressing the root cause of your unrelenting symptoms, conditions, or disease, but you still haven’t been able to get your health back, you may have been missing something BIG!
My team and I have been collecting data from clients all over the world, and this data shows that there is ALWAYS more than one root cause behind why you have become sick and are unable to get your health back.
The most common root causes that most people have been learning about include mold toxins, environmental toxins, foods, and even prescription medications…
But the ONE BIG THING that most people don’t know about is actually one of the biggest root causes of why people stay sick and unable to heal…
You see, unresolved trauma creates a knot of unwanted and highly charged “negative” emotions.
These emotions, coupled with the memory of the traumatic event, create altered perspectives of how you see yourself and the world around you…
These memories, emotions, and belief systems that form as a result of the unresolved trauma get stuck in your cells, tissues, and organs – ultimately leading to a host of symptoms, conditions, and various diseases.
In fact, Harvard Medical School reports that past trauma, no matter how severe, is directly linked to chronic health conditions like:
- Mind Racing
- Chronic fatigue
- Cardiovascular problems (such as heart attack and stroke)
- Autoimmune diseases
- Memory loss
- Neurodegenerative disease
- Liver and Kidney disease
- Hair loss
- Sleepless nights
- And much more…
What’s even worse is that your risk for mental and physical health problems increases dramatically the more traumatic events you’ve experienced.
Events like a troubled childhood, personal or financial loss, emotional or physical abuse, an accident, regret, fear, and yes, even a pandemic…
The traumatic experiences we go through in life often leave us feeling sick, tired, and unable to fully feel joy.
Luckily there is a way out!
Join me on Sunday, November 6th as I show you the science behind what happens in your body and brain when trauma and emotions go unresolved.
In my Trauma Masterclass, I will guide you through the process of how you can uncover and address this Most Overlooked Root Cause of Chronic Disease and Mental Illness.
