Food, Not Meds with Carol D’Anca

October 13, 2012


Carol D’Anca, Director of “Food, Not Meds,” and a board eligible nutritionist, has spent over twenty years in healthcare and health related fields joins eHealth Radio and the Health and Nutrition Channel.

Listen to interview [audio player below] with host Eric Michaels & guest Carol D’Anca discuss the following:

  • How did you become so interested in heart disease?
  • What do you mean it can’t be stopped?
  • If nothing helped what did you do?
  • What has been the most significant thing you have learned about heart disease along the way?
  • How do you help others with this model?


Carol D’Anca, president of “Food, Not Meds,” and a board eligible nutritionist, has spent over twenty years in healthcare and health related fields. More than just another nutritionist, Carol utilizes a unique combination of family, community, travel, and plant based nutrition to create a one-of-a-kind program that links the health of a person’s emotional heart to the health of the physical heart.

Carol’s approach to nutrition means more than just cleaning out a person’s kitchen cabinets and replacing the high fat foods with no fat foods. She’s discovered that people learn more and are better able to implement dietary changes by traveling to Italy where they get the chance to “walk the talk.” Her small tour groups live what they’re learning, spending 1-2 weeks immersed in a culture of strong community, natural exercise and a nutritional program designed and based on proven research. Her clients return home understanding how all three elements (food, daily activity, community) work together to promote heart health.

Carol plans to leave her full time job as the Executive Vice President of an international medical device company at the end of 2012 to apply her full time efforts to her nutrition business.

She has been an upper level manager in the areas of sales and marketing, financial analysis, operational logistics and business development for health-related systems across the country for most of her career. After graduating with honors from the University of Wisconsin, Carol studied in the MBA program at Lake Forest Graduate School of Management, and then earned her Master’s Degree in Clinical Nutrition from the Chicago Medical School/Rosalind Franklin University of Science and Medicine.

  • Is your product(s) on the market now? If not, what are the next milestones to approval?
  • What tip would you give to those who suffer from the diseases/conditions that are the focus of your company? What can patients do to improve their quality of life?


Seth Lederman is a physician, scientist, and specialty pharmaceuticals entrepreneur. Prior to founding TONIX, from 2007-2008 Dr. Lederman co-founded and was a managing partner of Konanda Pharma Partners, LLC and Konanda Pharma Fund I, LP. He co-founded and served as director and chairman of its wholly-owned operating companies Validus and Fontus Pharmaceuticals Inc., which market Equetro® (carbamazepine – Extended Release), Marplan® (isocarboxazid) and Rocaltrol® (calcitriol). In 2000 Dr. Lederman founded Targent Pharmaceuticals to develop late-stage oncology drugs including pure-isomer levofolinic acid, which was sold to Spectrum Pharmaceuticals and is now FDA-approved and marketed as Fusilev® for colorectal cancer. In 1998 Dr. Lederman co-founded Vela Pharmaceuticals, which developed several drugs for central nervous system disorders, including VLD-cyclobenzaprine.

Dr. Lederman has authored numerous scientific articles, and has been issued several patents for drug development technologies.

Dr. Lederman’s fundamental research on the CD40-Ligand (CD154) elucidated the molecular basis of T cell helper function and led to the development of therapeutic candidates for autoimmune diseases and organ transplant rejection in collaboration with Biogen-IDEC and CellTech/UCB. The successful defense of his CD154 patents established important precedents defining the relationship between therapeutics and molecular targets. In collaboration with Prof. David Baltimore (then at Rockefeller University and later MIT), Dr. Lederman identified and functionally characterized the CD40 signaling molecule, TRAF-3. Dr. Lederman’s earlier research efforts in HIV contributed to understanding how the V3 loop of HIV gp120 affected fusion with CD4 cell membranes, an early and essential event in viral entry and infection.

Dr. Lederman earned an AB from Princeton in Chemistry cum laude in 1979 and an MD from Columbia University’s College of Physicians and Surgeons in 1983. He trained in internal medicine and rheumatology at Columbia’s Presbyterian Hospital, serving as an attending physician in its Edward Daniels Arthritis and Autoimmunity Clinic from 1988-1996.
