Deanna Minich, PhD, CN, RYT

Deanna Minich, PhD, CN, RYT (www.drdeannaminich.com), is the author of five books on nutrition and wellness, including Chakra Foods for Optimum Health, and her latest, Whole Detox. She grew up with a health-nut mom and junk-food dad, who ultimately taught her important lessons about food - be conscious, but not so crazy conscious that you become a perfectionist. Having had her own emotional eating and health issues in her teens and twenties, she looked for solutions to her health and relationship with food. Her journey to find answers led her to weave together science, nutrition, psychology, philosophy, yoga, and chakras to develop a lifestyle system called Food & SpiritT. She offers training to practitioners of all types to learn this color-coded system for health and wellness (www.foodandspiritprofessional.com) to help others to live a vibrant full-spectrum life.
