End Chronic Disease: The Healing Power of Belief, Behaviors, and Bacteria” and how her own personal story played a role in her journey to health — and helping others.
“We were aware food was having a huge impact on chronic disease in our family, and several years ago we had done a documentary called ‘Secret Ingredients’ — it was in the Rhode Island Film Festival and we won the Green Planet Award, which is very prestigious award here in Rhode Island — and that was really about changing our food, shifting away from processed food, and moving to an organic diet. And we reversed 21 chronic diseases in our family of 5,” she said.

“That was huge for us because ultimately what we were doing was breaking a vicious cycle in our family with our three boys, and teaching them that they didn’t have to be on that trajectory of chronic disease,” said DiChiara. “I think to understand the scope of it — six out of ten Americans right now have chronic disease and four out of ten Americans have multiple chronic diseases.”
“I think ultimately that’s where this book came from — I shifted to writing this book because what I found in my nutrition practice is that people were kind of caught up in that vicious loop of not knowing what it was that was keeping them in that chronic disease cycle — and so much of the power they already own, so I really wanted to talk about those lifestyle practices, what’s the mindset that drives the behavior that ultimately ends up shifting the ecosystem of the body,” she added.
