About Dietitian Jill Place…
Dietitian Jill Place is a trailblazer in Complementary and Alternative Medicine (CAM), a beacon in CAM cancer therapy and a visionary in permanent weight loss without dieting which she calls Are You Weighting?
She was one of the very first dietitians to embrace CAM as a therapeutic tool, often the only dietitian in crowded seminar rooms full of doctors and other health care professionals. Now that CAM is considered more mainstream, Jill has already had years of experience working directly with patients as well as writing and speaking. She’s on the fault line of the paradigm shift to health prevention.
Jill has always been interested in food, becoming a vegan in her teens and a whole foods chef in her twenties. But her fervor for healing though nutrition was ignited by working with and for Harvey and Marilyn Diamond, authors of the mega-bestseller, Fit for Life. Because she was both an accomplished chef and theatre veteran, she did everything from co-creating recipes to troubleshooting huge seminars for them. She explains, “I was going to get my PhD in Theatre and teach. Then I met the Diamonds and discovered a real zeal for healing people naturally.” Jill’s passion then led her to return to school to become a Registered Dietitian. And then seek out and cultivate prized relationships with some of the top wellness gurus in the world. As well as eventually becoming a Certified Clinical Nutritionist. Jill also has psychotherapeutic training in addiction, weight loss and eating disorders.
Her varied career as a dietitian includes being the spokesperson for Healthy Valley Foods, a writer of educational programs for various supplement companies, and a consultant working in clinics and other healthcare facilities. Jill’s star shone brightest, however, in the cancer community, where she worked in an integrated clinic that was documented by Discovery Health. The notice she garnered as a member of this team opened many doors, including speaking and writing opportunities.
As a speaker, Jill has been invited to talk worldwide at many venues, including to her peers at the American Dietetic Association and the Dietitians of Canada, on nutritional supplements and cancer. She has also keynoted and cajoled many types of audiences from television to corporate America.
As a writer, Jill is featured in several textbooks; she wrote an entire chapters on CAM for Nutritional Issues in Cancer Care and about mushrooms and immunity for Nutrition and Integrative Therapy. Jill also served on the Editorial Panel for the American Society of Parenteral and Enteral Nutritionists ’ (ASPEN) Oncology Diet and Nutrition Manual and published a peer-reviewed journal article on nutritional supplements and cancer for the then American Dietetic Association’s ON-Line publication as well as many others. Her professional opinion is highlighted in many magazines, including Delicious Living, Weight Watcher’s, South Beach Diet Living, Natural Health, Alternative Medicine and Whole Life Times.
In the last few years, she has written two complete educational programs for Diabetes management and Heart Health for Arlen Nutraceuticals, an up-and-coming supplement company whose vision it is to provide therapeutically viable supplements in user-friendly beverage or ice cream form. Of the many exciting projects she currently has in the works, Jill is especially excited about her Are You Weighting? interactive E-book and video system for permanent weight loss without dieting that she is readying for the internet. Jill is also the author of Supplement Savvy, the first user-friendly Supplement Education System for health care professionals.
Jill’s unique skills, including an intense interest in human behavior from her prior careers as an actor and coach, have prepared her to treat both the person AND the problem with cutting-edge nutritional counseling. She has counseled in both traditional and integrative settings and consulted to some of the top eating disorder programs and alcohol and drug rehabs in the United States, using such diverse tools as medicine wheels, guided imagery, and ritual.
As a matter of fact, Jill went public with her gifts as a Medical Intuitive just last year. Something she’s been sharing with her clients all along, she felt it was time for the world to know about this unique talent that’s been with her, she’s sure, since she was born. At an extremely young age, Jill knew she was different. Now she’s able to share her ability to look in bodies, sense areas of physical, mental, or spiritual discomfort or dis-ease and erase or remove the difficulty altogether in a much bigger way.
Dietitian Jill Place has positioned herself on the forefront of breaking-news nutrition for more than two decades. And her innate gifts as a Medical Intuitive take total healing to a whole new level. She is truly the Number One Nutritionist for the 21st Century.
