About the Author:

Juliette Aiyana, L.Ac. Dipl.Ac. will take just about any opportunity to talk about food, to write about food, to teach about food, to study about food, to cook food, and, of course, to eat food. Her interest in using food as medicine was piqued in the early 1990’s after she healed herself of an ovarian cyst with dietary change. Her extraordinary experience catapulted her career as a massage therapist into a practitioner of Chinese medicine who specializes in whole foods nutrition, acupuncture, and herbs in New York City. She is certified in “the Theory and Practice of Traditional Chinese Nutrition” through Yo San University, and as a teacher of “Dr. Sears L.E.A.N. (Lifestyle, Exercise, Attitude & Nutrition) Workshops” for families and pregnant women. Juliette’s philosophy is that an empowered patient in self-care techniques and teaching natural health and nutrition seminars for the general public via her website Juliette is a sought-after expert in whole foods nutrition, weight loss, and in women’s health and fertility. She is featured in major magazines such as Fitness, Kiwi, Natural Solutions, Martha Stewart, Acupuncture Today, Chinese Medicine Times, and for radio, T.V., webcasts and podcasts. At home in Brooklyn, she chills out with her husband, son, family and friends, and loves cooking, music, dancing, yoga, meditation, and laughter.
