Food & Spirit Defined
Food & Spirit is a functional, innovative, science-based approach to nutrition. Dr. Deanna Minich is the founder. The concept artfully blends traditional eastern ideologies into the framework of 21st century personalized nutrition. The program is centered in building self-confidence around everyday food choices and provides a deeper understanding of the complex relationships between our food, our planet, our bodies and our minds. Food & Spirit beautifully connects the notion that food is not only medicine, but is also our connection to the world and each other.
This approach looks at individuals as a WHOLE person—not just your body, or only the foods you eat, but to see you as a multi-faceted being comprised of 7 Aspects. These 7 Aspects come from ancient traditions and are what are called:
Root, Flow, Fire, Love, Truth, Insight And Spirit
Getting the array of colors is essential to nourishing our body through the chakra system. Here are some colors and their chakra correlations, along with some ideas about foods to get the best nutrition through a variety of plant foods:
There is much more to food than we realize, and I don’t believe even science has caught up to applying fields like quantum physics to understand the frequency of food and how that impacts us on a subtle level. We are on the path of merging science and spirituality in the 21st century.
Functional Integrated Medicine Defined
The primary focus of Functional Integrated Medicine is evaluating the root-causes of an illness and addressing it through lifestyle management, focusing on nutrition, sleep and mindful activity.
Functional medicine integrates traditional Western medical practices with what is sometimes considered “alternative” or “integrative” medicine, creating a focus on prevention through nutrition, diet, and exercise; use of the latest laboratory testing and other diagnostic techniques; and prescribed combinations of botanical medicines, supplements, custom diets, detoxification programs, or stress-management techniques.
Functional medicine addresses the underlying causes of disease, using a systems-oriented approach and engaging both patient and healthcare practitioner in a therapeutic partnership. By shifting the traditional disease-centered focus of medical practice to a more patient-centered approach, functional medicine addresses the whole person, not just an isolated set of symptoms. Functional medicine practitioners spend time with their patients, listening to their histories and looking at the interactions among genetic, environmental, and lifestyle factors that can influence long-term health and chronic disease.
