Food and Mood with Dr Deanna Minich

Recorded live at the 4th BioCeuticals Research Symposium, Andrew talks to Dr Deanna Minich about her background in conventional medicine and research at a time when "functional foods" and “functional nutrition" were newly emerging concepts.

Dr Minich's research highlights the interconnectedness of whole food, food-combining and the influence cooking and preparation can have on optimal nutritional yield. She now takes a very broad and open-minded approach to food and health.

In particular, Dr Minich has a keen interest in the connection of food and mood as well as the influence of genetic factors and how to unravel them to help people move towards greater wellness.

Dr. Minich holds Master’s and Doctorate degrees in nutrition and has lectured extensively throughout the world on health topics, teaching patients and health professionals about nutrition.
