Adventure inserts fun and variety into your diet, so make sure you learn how to have fun eating! Mindfulness helps you understand the effect of food and the environment on YOUR INDIVIDUAL health. Lastly the science of Epigenetics is a rapidly growing field of medicine that looks at the response of your DNA to the food you eat, the thoughts you think and the company you keep.
What is eating for meaning? It’s a nutrition program designed to help you change your relationship to food by paying attention to your body’s signs and symptoms. You will change your body and reduce and reverse signs and symptoms of chronic disease in the process. It works because anti-aging is more than vanity, it’s the prevention and treatment of chronic disease.
Our body and mind are connected. Change your relationship to food and restore normal body functions >>> reduce chronic disease risk factors for Alzheimer’s, Heart Disease, Autoimmune, cancer and obesity.
Remember your N.A.M.E.

Eating for Meaning® is a nutrition program addressing the prevention and treatment of chronic disease. After working in health and nutrition for over 20 years I understand why diets fail, are limiting and uninspiring, and I’ll share it with you. Diets fail because the whole concept of the diet (fewer calories in than out) is flawed. It is designed only to be temporary. Thus most fad diets keep you on a roller coaster ride of weight loss and gain, while your metabolism and mood suffer. Sure you lose the weight, but it comes back and then some, usually while picking up some health problems along the way. Plus diets, don’t get to the root cause of your health issues in the first place and may cause health problems in the long run. That’s why I designed Eating for Meaning®. Eating for Meaning® is more than a weight loss program and you don’t even have to lose weight at all. Maybe you want to gain weight! Working together, we will customize the program to treat your own individual chronic symptoms. You will achieve your personal nutrition goals, even while you sleep. xox Dr. Millie

Hi, I’m Millennia Ruth Lytle,
I’m a Naturopathic Doctor with a passion for solving health puzzles. We are all bombarded with too much nutritional information, we don’t know which way to turn. I have been there too! Remember the low-fat fad? At 20 years old I gained weight by cutting fat, subsequently increasing my sugar cravings and starting purging all those carbs! And I still didn’t lose weight. Not until I fell down the stairs and broke my jaw in 3 places, did I get a wake up call to STOP restricting my food.
I learned a lot with my own experience. But I have since spent 12 years in school, worked on research and literally scoured the earth for the best strategies to help you you solve your own nutrition puzzle, including being young and beautiful on the inside and out. I now put them all these strategies together to help you achieve your health goals! I have created Eating for Meaning, a brand new eating program which can help prevent and treat your chronic disease!!! After all, anti-aging is more than vanity, it is the prevention and treatment of chronic disease.
If you have seen all the doctors, done everything possible and still suffer with a range of mysterious symptoms like
- autoimmune disorder
- difficulty losing weight
- chronic fatigue and fibromyalgia
- high blood pressure
- depression and anxiety
- disordered eating
- gas and bloating
- even many cancers
…I am excited to show you the mysteries of your body so you can discover your road to health!! Eating for meaning will allow you to ditch the diet.

Dr. Millie changed my life. She helped me both physically and mentally and has provided me with life long lessons on how diet and stress affect your overall well being. It was the best step for my health and well being to have been her patient and I would highly recommend her to anyone. She is sincere and caring in addition to being well informed and up to date with the best solutions that will work for her patients.
Thanks Dr. Millie for taking out the time to listen to my issues when I came to visit and cried while discussing my pain from an ulcer, acid reflux, hiatal hernia, esophageal, and gastritis. You recommended MinAcid Hx instead of taking proton inhibitors(antacids) & powdered potassium & magnesium for my then low potassium which is now normal. Thanks a million! Blessings!
After being frustrated by my lack of progress trying to lose weight (despite going to the gym and several diets) I was beginning to think that I should just accept the fact that my “40-something” body wasn’t going to allow me to reach my goals. But Dr. Millie took the time to help me understand how the foods I ate were blocking my progress. After learning about my eating habits she put me on a path that steadily and smartly adjusted what I ate and I was amazed how quickly I noticed results – and I never felt I was on a diet. She was able to help me lower my weight, increase my energy levels, and I feel ten years younger. It’s amazing how a few adjustments in what you eat can optimize how your body responds. Her knowledgeable approach, comfortable style and her customized strategy was exactly what I needed to reach my goals. Thank you Dr. Millie!
You can sprout any seeds, beans or whole grains (except GMO or radiated seeds–because there is no life in those foods and that is TRAGIC!). I give the directions on how to sprout in my Workbook. If you have digestive troubles or want to increase the nutrition of you food then sprouting is a great way to DIY. Make sure you use seeds or grains meant for sprouting, otherwise soak them first in a mixture of 1 quart water and 2 teaspoons of 35 % food grade hydrogen peroxide for 30 or so minutes. Then rinse them off. This will get rid of any mold that tends to grown on bulk items. Then you need a mason jar and cheese cloth. Again check the Workbook.

My favorite Detox Waters (without the boredom)
I am a person who tires from routine so when it comes to detoxifying my liver with bitter waters, I mix it up. While a hot beverage is more more effective at processing digestion than cold water, do what you want on whatever day you want.
Here are my top faves.
1. Room temperature water and Angostura bitters– the herb Gentian is the most bitter herb on the planet and a wonderful cholagogue, gets rid of cholesterol. Don’t save bitters for the bar. Turn them into virgin cocktails and especially detox water.
2. Hot lemon water– make sure to fresh squeeze the lemon into the water at the end. Vitamin C gets destroyed with boiling. If you’re lemon is organic then soak the slice in the water as you drink and eat the whole rind at the end. This is how to get extra medicine from your drink. Rich in citrus flavonoids and fiber.
3. Hot spicy Mama– Take that same lemon water and throw a dash of cayenne pepper, a black pepper clove, a few organic raisins and some fresh ginger or turmeric in there. So delish and nutrish! So warming for freezing days.
3. Green tea. Generally I hate the taste of green tea but I love it with a squeeze of lemon added, rose petals, toasted roasted rice or pure blueberry juice. So without cheating (adding honey or another sweetener) do it up how you like it. Make sure you don’t damage the EGCG antioxidants by boiling green tea. Steep it once the water is removed from the heat.
4. Coffee– Americans who drink coffee are healthier than those who don’t, for good reason. A cup of coffee has flavonoids, bitters and circulatory stimulants. Great for focus, energy and liver detox. No more than two cups though, of course, NO SWEETENER WHATSOEVER. If you can’t handle it without sugar, it’s not the detox for you. These days coffee can be brewed with cinnamon, carob, dried shitake or chaga, nuts and seeds to add to the nutritional value. Try it, it’s amazing. Here’s a recipe from ChagaGrove.com
¼ cup coconut milk/cashew/almond mylk (unsweetened)
2 tablespoons chia seeds
1 cup sheep’s-milk yogurt (optional, make it vegan if you want)
2 tablespoons shelled pistachios, chopped
2 tablespoons pomegranate seed
1/2 tsp carob powder
option: Swap out the milk for unsweetened apple sauce! YUM. Still delicious with cocoa or carob powder. You know I prefer carob.- It has protein, minerals and antioxidants. Make you you check my blog about all the benefits of carob. FOOD of the GODS.
Whisk together mylk,carob and chia seeds in a small bowl; refrigerate overnight.
Layer chia mixture with yogurt, and top with pistachios and pomegranate seeds.
So filling and delicious! And you can change the fruit, seeds and make it vegan or with dairy. YUM
