The University of Michigan Integrative Medicine’s Healing Foods Pyramid™ was conceived by Monica Myklebust, M.D., and Jenna Wunder, M.P.H., R.D., in their passion for food in all of its beauty, variety and healing benefits. The foods we choose to eat are essential to how we care for ourselves. In choosing the healing foods on this pyramid, each one of us contributes to our own health.
