Deanna Minich 26/11/09 Author of Chakra Foods for Optimal Health

Deanna Minich, PhD, CN, is an internationally-recognized, dynamic nutrition educator, and author of three cutting-edge books on nutrition, Chakra Foods for Optimum Health, An A to Z Guide to Food Additives, and Quantum Supplements. An “out-of-the-box” nutritionist, Dr. Minich sees more to food than just calories and nutrients. Her passion is in guiding people beyond the physical needs of food into understanding how food choices and the experience of eating impact not only our bodies, but our emotions, thoughts, and subtle energy. She teaches that foods and eating provide creative ways that we can access deeper issues related to personal growth. Her approach is unique, as she uses a base of science, a sprinkle of spirituality, and a dash of practicality to help you create a meaningful relationship with meals. In addition to her extensive education in nutrition science (M.S. and Ph.D.), she integrates the ancient wisdom of spiritual traditions and practices she has been trained in, including Reiki, yoga, the chakra system, and shamanism. She has contributed to the food and dietary supplement industries over the past ten years as a nutrition researcher and clinician, and has been trained in functional medicine, an integrative approach to health.
