How much do you really value your health & your life?
I don’t know about you, but I can’t believe there are only a few weeks left of 2021! This is a great time of year to give gratitude for everything you can and it’s also a great time to contemplate about what you want for yourself and your life as the new year quickly approaches.
It can be so hard to be positive when you have been dealing with a chronic illness, wanting so badly to just feel better again and even doubting your ability to heal. I want you to know that you are NOT broken and you CAN heal!
In fact, anyone can heal but many times we unknowingly get in our own way when it comes to doing what we need to do to get the results we want. I want to take a few minutes to talk about the real secret sauce behind those who are successful in overcoming their chronic illness, whether its a mental health condition, neurodegenerative disease, autoimmune condition, or any health issue you just can’t seem to work past – so that you can become aware of any barriers to your healing and health that may be in the way, that you are just not aware of.
How many of you would like to eliminate your illness, whatever that might be, in 2022? How many of you would like to lose weight? Reverse your diabetes? Improve your sleep? Your mental health struggles? Your autoimmune disease? How many of you have done ‘all the work’ to heal your gut, yet you are still constipated?!
Try the Butterfly Hug to Calm Your Anxiety & Your Nervous System
The Butterfly hug is used when working with PTSD, anxiety, or other trauma, to facilitate primary processing of a fundamental traumatic memory or memories. One of the effects of anxiety, trauma, and unprocessed emotion is the disruption of the neurological pathways that provide communication between the two hemispheres of the brain. The butterfly hug works via bilateral stimulation which creates new neurological connections between the two hemispheres of the brain to allow better communication and processing of emotions and traumatic memories.
This modality is just one of the many tools we use when working with our clients who have trauma, anxiety, and unprocessed emotions that are one of the causes of their chronic illness or inability to heal.
Eating healthy while on holiday
We love working with our clients to teach them how to identify and address the root causes of their chronic illness, whether it’s auto-immune related, brain related, hormones, whatever the case may be…. There are common denominators that lead to chronic illness. Understanding how to navigate your journey back to health is the best investment you’ll ever make. As a matter of fact, all of us here at Modern Holistic Health have been through our own journey learning how to identify our barriers to healing and how to navigate our way back to health.
My own journey started with multiple food sensitivities that first led me down the road of many dietary restrictions – for over 10 years! While I learned many ways to overcome the challenges of changing my foods in my home, I found that traveling was difficult for me because I wasn’t aware of how I could eat healthy when I was away from my home. I found myself staying home rather than experiencing the joy of travel simply because I never had a coach to show me the way.
It took time for me to learn on my own that I COULD travel and make sure my body was getting the right fuel. Once I learned how to eat for my health while traveling, I felt so free and excited and it’s now one of the things I love to teach our clients because many of them also want to travel and they want to also make sure they continue eating in the way that is helping their body and brains heal. Not only do I teach our clients how to eat clean while enjoying their vacations and travelling, I also show them how they can navigate healthy meals even with their children and partners in the mix.
I’ve got an extra holiday treat for you that we are so excited to share! Ann, our lead biological coach at Modern Holistic Health first made these for me about 3 years ago and I have to admit, I couldn’t eat just one! Hahaha!! And there was no guilt because they are low carb, low sugar, and gluten free! These cookies are positively delicious and easy to make so give them a try! Take these to your holiday parties and watch everyone obsess over them, not even knowing they are ‘healthy’!
Go ahead, try them and then drop us a video review to let Ann and us know what you think! – Dr. Elena

Winter ‘Viral’ Protocol Podcast
Do you know what supplement protocols can work on viral patterns (yes, that one too!)? Dr. V and Ann discuss the latest holistic protocols and resources that can be used to help combat viruses.
Also, here is an article I wrote last year on guidelines for boosting the immune system and preventing viral replication in the body. While the article was written last year, the protocols are still working and relevant today: https://www.modernholistichealth.com/understanding-coronavirus/
Highly recommended viewing IF you are still searching for answers.
History is repeating itself (as it often does, unfortunately.)
Just a few weeks after the landmark press conference announcing the success of the Polio [email protected]((!ne trials, an Idaho doctor reported a case of paralytic polio in a recently treated girl.
And over the next few weeks it would soon emerge that over 120,000 people received a tainted Polio [email protected]((!ne
40,169 of those people would go on to contract the very thing they were supposed to be protected against.
And the vast majority of those cases came from the mistake of just ONE manufacturer…
It came to be known as the “Cutter Incident”.
The lab had received advanced warnings of problems, but superiors swept them aside…
Will the same deadly medical oversight happen with C0 –V –!D?
Inside, is an interview with someone who worked very close to the epicenter of the Cutter Incident….
And he tells the story from a perspective that can’t be found anywhere else.
These 2 top picks are perfect timing for the holidays
Each month, my coaching team and I want to share with you one or more products we love and trust – because of the safety and ‘clean’ ingredients they have, how well they work, and because it supports small business… and we want to make it easy for you to find great products and support the amazing people and families who are behind them.
It’s so easy to buy on Amazon, yes I get that, but did you know that Amazon takes away everything that makes a small business amazing and sustainable? And not only that, they are now controlling what you have the ability to purchase, and what the pricing is, leaving small businesses with their hands tied behind their back, at the mercy of Amazon.
If YOU find a great product that you want to share with us, let us know so that we can look into it and share it with our tribe – YOUR tribe!
For December, I am sooooo excited to share TWO small businesses with you – these two top picks are perfect timing for the holidays for yourself and for gifts! I promise you’ll love them!

TJ, the founder of Fresh Pressed Olive Oil has such a great story which makes it no surprise why his olive oil is just as fantastic. I’m not kidding. It’s so good I eat it with a spoon. Seriously! He literally travels around the world to orchards, picking the olives, eating them and if he likes them, he has them pressed into oil and shipped to his customer with in a couple of months! He has a club where they will send you the oils along with the information on which part of the world they came from! So cool!

Dry Farm Wines
Some of us may be in a place of healing or health where its best to just not consume alcohol, while some of us are in a place where it’s ok to consume a glass or two over the holiday. If you DO plan to enjoy some wine, make sure its a good one!
Did you know conventional wines have over 75 chemicals additives and a lot of added sugar?!) Yes, it’s true. But not Dry Farm wines.
The company travels around the world visiting old world small vineyards tasting and testing their grapes for quality and to ensure no chemicals are sprayed on their grapes and that no additives or sugars are added to the wines. If you love wine, I think you will really like this company!
So if you plan to enjoy a glass or two of wine this holiday season or you want to give a unique wine with a unique story to a fellow wine lover, this company can provide! We’ve been supporting them now for over 3 years and use their wines at any of our events because they are super clean, no added sugars, no added chemicals.
