ABOUT JULIA ROSS
Julia Ross is a pioneer in the field of nutrition, appetite, and mood, and a specialist in the treatment of eating disorders and addictions.
In 1980, Ross began hiring nutritionists to research the link between biochemistry, emotions, and addiction. By 1986 this exploration had led to the creation of an exciting new model of treatment that combined innovative nutritional therapy and holistic medical care with conventional counseling and education. This new model gave hope to the 97% of people addicted to foods and unable to sustain recovery through dieting and psychotherapy. In 1988 Ross founded The Recovery Systems Clinic in Mill Valley, California, an outpatient program that further developed this model, with a special focus on treating people with carbohydrate addictions, blood sugar problems, and dieting disorders. She has founded and directed six successful recovery programs since 1980 in the San Francisco Bay Area, including Northern California’s first treatment program for food addiction.
Ross is a popular and compelling speaker who has made hundreds of presentations to introduce the public to the extraordinary benefits of nutrient therapy and biochemical rebalancing. In addition to a busy lecture schedule in California and throughout the US and abroad, Julia provides advanced training for professionals on how to successfully treat compulsive eating, diabetes, and associated problems, as well as chemical dependency. She has taught at John F. Kennedy University's graduate psychology program in Orinda, California, and at the University of California, Berkeley Extension's Addiction Counseling Certification Program.
Ross' best-selling book, The Diet Cure, has sold well over 100,000 copies in the U.S, the U.K. and Australia, and was included in Amazon’s Top 10 list of health and body books. When the Diet Cure’s book proposal was first sent to the New York publishing houses it created a sensation. Seven publishers bid on it because of its unique approach to the top-selling subjects in America: Weight gain, dieting, and emotional eating. Julia’s second book, The Mood Cure, was released in paperback in 2004 was a finalist for "The Books for a Better Life Award." The varied publications that have featured Ross' work include: Psychology Today, Vogue, the Journal of Molecular Psychiatry, and the Townsend Letter.
Ross has frequently appeared as an expert on radio and television programs. Her first national TV appearance, on a news segment about the use of amino acid therapy to stop carb cravings, generated 50,000 calls to the producers.
Julia now trains health practitioners internationally on how to help their patients stop overeating to defend themselves from the diabetes, heart disease, and cancer that are so often associated with sugar and other refined food consumption.
Julia holds an M.A. in Clinical Psychology, as well as a California Marriage and Family Therapy license. She is the Executive Director of The Recovery Systems Clinic and the NeuroNutrient Therapy Institute training, in Mill Valley, California.
A NOTE BY THE AUTHOR ABOUT HER IMAGE
The photo that was used on the jacket cover of the first edition of The Diet Cure started out like the photograph we've posted on the right, but the publisher's art department chose a different pose and removed every line on my face. Even the lines between my teeth disappeared! You can imagine the fit I pitched, since The Diet Cure was written to help reverse the damage caused by false images of beauty! The untouched photo was used on all future PR for The Diet Cure and the publishers swore to destroy the airbrushed version.
