Orecchio, founder of the website The Whole Journey, tells people that she is a former caffeine and sugar junkie who was raised on pizza, pasta, and antibiotics, but who has since embarked on a healing lifestyle change of whole, real food, customized supplements, and lifestyle adjustments that "were beyond transformative for me."

"For the first time in my life, I experienced energy all day long, enthusiasm, peace, confidence, great digestion, deep sleep, and lost 'the last 10lbs.' I just couldn't believe what true health really was, and I wanted to help everyone I knew experience the same thing. So I decided to leave the business world and do just that," she said.

Her approach is clinical with a functional medicine spin, "meaning I am always looking to get to the root cause of whatever is going on with someone's health. It also means that I view the body as a systemic organism and know that all organs, glands, and systems affect each other," she wrote.

She is the developer of The Whole Journey Online program, a course that teaches people how to heal from the root cause by letting food be their medicine. And she is co-author of The Anti-Inflammatory Diet with Cheryl Tiegs as well as The Whole Journey Food as Medicine Cookbook and The Five Tris: A Brand New Approach to Pre-Natal Health. You can see her weekly on Fox as a nutrition expert, "where I impart a mind-body approach to eating and wellness every Thursday in a brand new episode of 'Food as Medicine,'" she said.

As for the summit itself, it will bring together many of the world's leading doctors, scientists and experts, who will share their intimate secrets for losing weight, getting fit, eating right and overcoming stress to beat the diabetes epidemic once and for all.

"Whether you've already been diagnosed with diabetes, were told that you have pre-diabetes, have a family history, or just want to make sure you don't get diabetes, this 12 day, power-packed summit will give you the ammunition you need to fight off the diabetes monster and win," says the summit website.

Once you register, you'll receive an "insider's pass" to watch 50 presentations from the world's leading doctors, nutritionists, diabetes coaches, authors, fitness gurus, and experts as they share their best secrets and insights over 12 exciting, information-packed days. They promise to teach you how to stop just managing your condition with endless drugs, needles and finger pricking, and start to address the root cause of diabetes and high blood sugar.
