What is the Certified Food & Spirit Practitioner Program?

It’s designed for health practitioners who have always wanted to implement a holistic therapeutic intervention, but have not found a cohesive framework to work with that included both a scientific basis, together with the recognition of creativity, emotions, and mind-body medicine in the healing process.

An integrated science-based and personal growth-focused approach for your client’s health

The Certified Food & Spirit Practitioner Program developed and led by functional nutritionist and author Dr. Deanna Minich is an online certificate program for health practitioners who would like to learn and apply a color-coded, science-based holistic system to bring together the healing of food and lifestyle approaches with their clients. The program includes 12-weeks of online training plus an 8-week practicum.

The online training portion includes lectures, interactive webinars, case studies, and a tool kit containing numerous forms and a substantial protocol guide, to assist clients in working with food, eating, and lifestyle modalities. The practicum component will provide you substantial support and mentorship as you move from theory into practice and coach a client through the Food & Spirit process.

The next Certified Food & Spirit Practitioner Program starts September 24, 2018. The 12-week online training will run from September 24-December 16, 2018. The 8-week practicum will run from January 21-March 17, 2019.

There are two sections to the Food & Spirit Certificate Program. The first 12 weeks is the training portion of the course, which includes theory, tool kit demonstration, and case study review. Successful completion of this section requires a 70% grade or higher on the final exam.

The second part is an 8-week online practicum where you get to put the “Food & Spirit” methodology in motion with one or more clients/patients under the mentorship of Dr. Minich. The format will be outlined to you after you’ve completed the first phase of the program. You will be able to select your client/patient for inclusion into the practicum session, and you will have weekly online calls with Dr. Minich to ask questions. At the conclusion of the 8-week practicum, you will write up a case study and submit it as the final requirement for the certificate of completion for this program.

In summary:

  • 12 weeks: Training portion of the course with weekly lessons and webinar check-ins to review case studies
    Successful completion of this part of the course requires a 70% or higher grade on the final exam
  • 8 weeks: Clinical, practicum mentorship portion of the course with weekly check-ins
