"Achieving extraordinary health and protecting yourself  against degenerative disease takes more than the average 'healthy' diet and a general exercise routine. It takes going a little deeper into the micro universe of the human cell to understand the multiple causes of degenerative health, and exactly what you need to do to protect your genetic integrity."
Taking a whole health approach in the education of her clients and students for optimally managing true health, Mary Esther Miranda Gilbert (Esther) integrates her nutrition science credential and years of researching and writing with a comprehensive holistic education in nutritional healing. For over three decades, she has effectively researched and developed evidence based nutritional protocols founded upon nutrition science physiology and holistic, whole health nutrition. In teaching clients a more effective understanding of how to master their health, she also draws upon scientific research from the fields of biophysics/biophotonics and bioenergy work as a Reconnective Healing practitioner. Esther is an honors graduate of the Clayton College of Natural Health, having earned a Bachelor and Master of Science Degree in Holistic Nutrition. She is also a summa cum laude honors graduate of Kaplan University with a Bachelors degree in Nutrition Science. She is a member of the International Golden Key Honor Society, and  the Alpha Beta Kappa Honor Society and Alumni of Kaplan University. She has been a long-standing member of the American Holistic Health Association and the American Association of Nutritional Consultants.

With years of study, research, experience in practice and witnessing client successes, Esther asserts that nutrition is the foundation from which to begin building extraordinary health and reverse the damaging effects of nutrient devoid food choices. She maintains that whole nutrition can effectively resolve the current health care crisis, and that disease prevention and health restoration can be achieved through complete and correct nourishment at the micro level. Esther states that the essential components of true health mastery include preventive and corrective nutritional health management by integrating a scientific, yet holistic approach, with an awareness of one’s own physiology when fulfilling the body's nutrient/energy requirements, and realizing the necessity of exercise for balancing the body's chemistry, improving strength, endurance and flexibility, along with self-growth and personal development while seeking a purposeful and enjoyable life.
Esther attributes her clients’ successful health mastery to the comprehensive guidelines and principles she has developed that have come to be known as The Tenets of True Health©™ which includes the nutritional protocol system she developed, known as whole health Nutritional Synergy©™. Her unprecedented, unique system is a versatile, food choice and supplements system that is more nutritionally complete, and simplifies the often overwhelming task of ensuring that the body consistently receives the full range of essential nutrients daily, while teaching the user the necessity of a strong foundational understanding of the vast and complex sciences of nutrition and their own physiology . 
Nutritional Synergy©™ was purposefully created with more food selection categories to ensure one's daily food intake is higher in nutrient density and provides the full range of all known essential-to-life nutrients. This ensures that the right raw materials the body utilizes to maintain its innate healing and restorative capacity are automatically included through food selections from the various classifications, making it simple for building each meal or planning menus. Nutritional Synergy©™ is also unique in that it is the only food choice system that acknowledges the life-force transfer effect of the bio-energy fields and vibrating molecular frequencies of whole foods compared to the low or negligible energy frequencies of processed or altered foods. 
Nutritional Synergy©™ is the sole system that actually classifies each food/nutrient category according to the nutritional needs of the various body systems. The Nutritional Synergy©™ system is a very convenient, user friendly way to put together nutrient dense meals where foods and nutrients are chosen from various classifications and easily combined to create satisfying meals. The effect of nutrient density is optimal cellular functioning and a balanced body chemistry, the fundamental basis from which to create a higher level of wellness and quality of life.  
True health is achieved through the transformation of trillions of the body's micro cells when receiving nutrients in their optimal molecular and atomic configurations, and affects all aspects of health, bringing together in synergy the physical body, the mind and its optimal, mental and emotional balance. Health mastery is the result of creating a condition of nutritional synergy, and balanced biochemistry and radiant energy that is felt and noticed by others, producing a vibrantly alive human being who attracts and influences those around him or her.
Whether one realizes it or not, health mastery cannot take place without the energetic transfer of biologically correct, whole nutrition. Complete and biologically correct nutrition, combined with an integral fitness plan while making environmentally and sustainably conscious consumer choices, is the foundation from which to help the body renew itself on a regular basis. It is the true way to build extraordinary health, which in turn naturally energizes and nourishes the mind/soul/spirit, and inevitably leads to transformational change--individually, collectively, and universally. 
Beginning an exercise program, returning to exercise after a layoff period, or maintaining a high level of fitness, is essential for helping to create conditions in the body that strengthen all body systems. Combined with maintaining optimal nutritional wellness, for optimal results cannot be produced without the other, the Nutritional Synergy©™ system supports a progressive exercise program, resulting in predictable and consistent health improvement.
Optimal Health Means Significantly Slowing the Aging Process
Esther's health mastery instructional courses teach how to enjoy a youthful level of fitness and vitality by reseting one's biological age and slowing aging even throughout one's advancing chronological years. Whole health nutrition and a holistic approach to exercise is the key to slowing down the aging process and improving one's physical condition. As a striking example, shown below is an old photo taken of Esther at age twenty in 1975 before embarking on a holistic nutrition and fitness program, where she transformed her physical fitness level within a year. She maintained this level through her thirties and forties as shown in the next two photos, and still maintained a high level of fitness in her fifties, which continues into her sixties. 
Esther's own personal holistic exercise protocol includes a well-rounded program of weight training, running and hiking for maintaining strength and endurance, and incorporates her ballet, yoga and martial arts training for maintaining flexibility, balance and coordinated movement for a higher mind-body-spirit connection.
Esther now holds a black belt in the original mixed martial art of Kajukenbo, the only U.S. born martial art that originated in Hawaii.  Esther also has studied the Philippine martial art of Arnis Kombatan, a system incorporating many martial arts that focuses on use of stick-fighting, swords and other ancient weaponry. She studied both martial arts under Sifu Master Andres Marquez III in Fairfield, California for over twelve years. She feels that by working her way through the challenging, disciplined martial arts, she has earned a sense of inner strength, self-respect and self-belief, while mastering inner calm and maintaining a core of strength and oneness with nature.
Only through a comittment of applying the powerful synergy of whole nutrition, however, is perpetual health and fitness possible, for complete and correct nourishment is critical to avoid the typical athlete's degenerative injuries that prevent them from staying active and at a greater level of fitness their whole life. When injuries occur, healing should be rapid and complete, as she can attest to with the accidental injuries she has incurred in the martial arts! 
Esther enjoys healthy dining and gatherings with family and friends, spending time in nature and in silent prayer or meditation. By teaching others how to transform their nutritional and physical health that inevitably leads to new perspectives and meaningful life changes, she plays an active role in helping to preserve harmony and peace in humanity for the sake of all living things on Earth. Esther currently resides in Phoenix, Arizona.


Esther continued to enjoy her vibrant health in her fabulous fifties, and now in her sixties!
