Ann Louise Gittleman, Ph.D., C.N.S.

Multi-award winning author of The New Fat Flush Plan

"Dr. Deanna Minich is one of those special people who has both the gifts of a scientific mind coupled with an equal measure of artistic humanism. She is a “blender” of the objective with the less tangible energies that define what allow people to do amazing things. In the ten years I have had the privilege of working with her I have been amazed at seeing her continual growth and contributions as a woman of great substance in pushing forward the evolution of the healthcare movement."


Jeffrey Bland, Ph.D.

Father of Functional Medicine, and author of The Disease Delusion

"Deanna Minich is a pioneer in the field of functional nutrition who sees beyond diet and lifestyle into several aspects of one’s health. She is easily able to take the science of nutritional biochemistry and connect it to the art of mind-body medicine for a complete whole-self approach to health and healing."


Amy Myers, M.D.

New York Times Bestselling Author of The Myers Way
