Her academic background is in nutritional science, including a Master’s Degree in Human Nutrition and Dietetics from the University of Illinois at Chicago (1995), and a Ph.D. in Medical Sciences (Nutrition) from the University of Groningen in The Netherlands (1999).

Dr. Minich has over ten years of experience working in both the food and dietary supplement industries. In 2014, she led The Detox Summit, an online event featuring 30 experts on detox, which was attended by 70,000 people worldwide. She will be co-hosting a follow-up summit in September 2017 called The Detox Project. She also collaborated with the Institute for Functional Medicine to lead 3000 people through The Detox Challenge, a 21-day, online, functional medicine-oriented, holistic detoxification program. Results collected from almost 700 people in this program indicated a significant improvement in all body systems. Her newest book, Whole Detox, was published in March 2016. In addition, she spends her time as a Board member for the American College of Nutrition and as adjunct faculty at the University of Western States.
