DR. DEANNA MINICH is an internationally-recognized lifestyle medicine expert, creative visionary, and author of five books. Her 20 years of experience in the nutrition and Functional Medicine fields led her to develop an integrated, “whole self” approach to nutrition called Food & Spirit, which is the practice of understanding one’s eating and living through the seven core symbolic themes. In 2014, she launched the Certified Food & Spirit Practitioner Program (www.foodandspiritprofessional.com) to provide health professionals with a practical way to apply the Food & Spirit principles into clinical medicine. Dr. Minich received her nutrition education during her Doctoral (Ph.D.) study at the University of Groningen in the Netherlands where she researched essential fatty acid absorption and metabolism, and from her Master’s Degree (M.S.) at the University of Illinois at Chicago, where she focused on carotenoids and oxidative stress. Her passion is teaching a whole-self approach to nourishment and bridging the gaps between science, spirituality, and art in medicine. Dr. Minich is a consultant to Genova Diagnostics and Metagenics. She is also a Board Member for Equinox.
