"Food is Medicine!"
The Whole Health Diet: A Transformational Approach to Weight Loss
Americans are avid dieters, with nearly one-third of our entire nation taking up dieting every year, yet diets have a success rate of between ten and thirty percent. Dr. Mark Mincolla, natural health-care practitioner and author of THE WHOLE HEALTH DIET: A Transformational Approach to Weight Loss claims that this high failure rate is due to a flawed approach to dieting that focuses only on physical changes. What dieters need, Mincolla argues, is a more holistic approach that addresses the root causes of weight gain: our emotional, mental, and spiritual needs.
In THE WHOLE HEALTH DIET, Mincolla not only teaches readers how to tackle emotional eating; he also shows them how to develop and maintain their own personalized, energy-calibrated nutrition plan. Based on the notion that each individual’s metabolism reacts differently to various foods, Mincolla shows dieters how to electromagnetically test themselves for metabolic food intolerances.

Customized Healing: Blending the Best of Eastern and Western Medicine
“Only by blending the best of Western mechanistic and chemical knowledge with the best of the ancient Eastern vitalistic approach can we become whole beings and claim our maximum healing potential,” writes Mark Mincolla, Ph.D., in Customized Healing. Trained in both Classical Chinese Medicine (CCM) and Western nutrition, Mincolla has been integrating these seemingly opposing modalities to cure disease and promote health over the last thirty years. Mincolla relies on an understanding of the synergy of mind/body/spirit to address his patients’ needs. That’s why the foods you eat, the supplements you take, your daily exercise, what you think, how you act, and what you believe and aspire to are all part of his integrated, holistic approach.
Enhancing the flow of life-force energy, or chi as it’s called in CCM, and avoiding blockage of chi are essential in Mincolla’s practice. He views symptoms as messages about what the mind/body/spirit needs. Grief in your heart or from clogged arteries both lead to blocked energy. To help him diagnose a person’s bio-individuality, he uses CCM’s five constitutional types, based on the five energies-wood, fire, earth, metal, and water-to discover the nutritional therapy, mind-body medicine (such as yoga, meditation, and tai chi), and natural medicine (specific foods and vitamin, mineral, and herbal supplements) needed to help the person achieve vibrant health.
As a student of Taoism, I have searched for a book that embodies the awareness of the need to address the human body as a whole entity; mind, body, intellect, and emotions, as well as the scientific approach to nutritional evidence that food is medicine. This is such a book. Dr. Mincolla’s book transcends a mere integration of Eastern and Western healing, by illuminating the importance of achieving harmony through unity of body, emotions, intellect, and spirit, all in balance with one another. And the best part of this process is that he does this easily, with brilliant understanding of how food, your specific body type, and your “Chi” must all flow together in balance. This is true health. This book if truly a healing tool. A must-read!
