Dr Deanna Minich’s Food & Spirit
Her twenty years of experience in the nutrition and functional medicine fields led her to develop an integrated “whole self” approach to nutrition called Food & Spirit.
Food & Spirit is the practice of understanding one’s eating and living through the seven core symbolic themes.
Dr Minich’s passion is teaching a “whole self” approach to nourishment and bridging the gaps between science, spirituality and art in medicine. (www.foodandspirit.com).
In 2014, she launched the Certified Food & Spirit Practitioner Program to provide health professionals with a practical way to apply the Food & Spirit principles into clinical medicine.
