What People Are Saying
"Allow people to do amazing things"
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, PhD, Father of Functional Medicine
"Essential to move and evolve my practice"
I feel that this course will be essential to move and evolve my practice. I believe it’s important to provide the tools to clients that resonate with oneself. The teachings of Food & Spirit have helped make me whole and it is important for me to bring it to my practice.
~ Sabine Weber, MS, RD, CDN
"The perfect fit for my private practice"
~ Fiona Bond, Accredited Exercise Physiologist, Allied Health Professional, Qualified School Teacher, ChiBall, Wellness Coach

A Note from the Founder,
Dr. Deanna Minich
I founded Food & Spirit™ in 2000 as a way to cultivate eating as a path to personal growth. Since we encounter food and the act of eating multiple times a day, I realized that this constant interface could become a conduit of understanding one’s inner self in relationship to their environment.
My goal for you as a Food & Spirit™ Practitioner is to embed yourself into larger matrices of healers and health professionals to serve the need of going deeper with your clients on their relationship with food.
If we can help clients to understand their relationship with food, we help them to understand and discover aspects of their inner self and outer behaviors.
Join me on this colorful and life-changing journey! I’m excited to work with you to help transform your practice, your client’s lives, and even your own health through the online Certified Food & Spirit Practitioner Program!
