Chakra Foods for Optimum HealthA Guide to the Foods that can Improve Your Energy,Inspire Creative Changes, Open Your Heart, And Heal Body, Mind, and Spiritby Deanna M. Minich, Ph.D., C.N. I learned a lot from reviewing this great 265 page helper. It made sense for me in a big way because I knew my body was made up from energy and that food is made up from energy so it stands to reason that the right energies combined would make a healthier more vibrant me, and the wrong ones could cause blockages and dis-ease. Along with the astounding and immense information about how everything blends together, even down to the chakras they connect through, even food colors make a difference. I was able to see some well presented graphs that summed it all up for me and helped me to see at a glance which disease and foods were connected to the different chakras and what food would help free up the flow. I would recommend this exceptionally beneficial teacher to absolutely everyone, because it does put a new spin on the saying, you are what you eat. Thanks Deanna, for giving us so much food for thought. Love & Light Riki Frahmann

I LOVE this book! Deanna takes a deep look at how what we eat affects our whole being. I love the mind, body, spirit approach and appreciate the thoughtful tone with which she encourages the reader to raise their consciousness around foods. I also love that there is a questionnaire that helps the reader to determine the imbalances of their chakras. This book has encouraged me and makes me feel like I have been to a spiritual retreat!
