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

"The Whole Detox is a brilliant transformative program that gives people the tools to get to the root causes of their health challenges and overcome and resolve the many toxins in their lives. Deanna Minich understands the benefits of addressing both food and spirit which makes her work uniquely powerful. I love her work!"

Terry Wahls, MD, IFMCP, Researcher, clinician

Author of The Wahls Protocol: A Radical New Way to Treat All Chronic Autoimmune Conditions Using Paleo Principles

"Dr. Deanna Minich is one of the major leaders and educators in functional medicine. Her ability to teach concepts of diet, nutrition, and lifestyle are extraordinary. Her research, books, and educational materials have made a profound impact on the field of clinical nutrition and the lives of many patients around the world."

Datis Kharrazian, PhD, DHSc, DC, MS, MMSc

FACN Harvard Medical School and Loma Linda University School of Medicine

“There is nothing more beautiful and compelling than the discovery of some Truth that has always been, is now and will always be. Dr. Minich’s ability to understand, synthesize and colorfully illustrate this in the world of health science is original and worthy of time and exploration for all of us interested in providing the full expression of health to the ones we serve.”
