Her private practice came into being after working at Westchester County Medical Center and consulting at Putnam Hospital Center in Carmel, New York and New York Medical College in pediatric cardiology. Dina's individualized and caring approach to evaluating a client’s nutritional needs has made her one of the most highly recommended nutrition specialists in Westchester County, New York.
"She is a highly sought after public speaker for organizations such as Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center."
Clients with conditions ranging from Lyme disease to heart disease to cancer have found successful results while following Dina’s expertise and advice. She is a highly sought after public speaker for organizations like Gilda’s Club of Manhattan, The Heart Center at Westchester Medical Center, American Cancer Society, Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center and professional groups such as Ninth District Dental Society for North America and The Executive Health Group at Rockefeller Plaza in New York City.
"The Author of The Food Combining/Blood Type Diet Solution."
Dina Khader’s successes with her patients through individualized nutrition programs prompted a patient to encourage her to author "The Food Combining/Blood Type Diet Solution" (Keats Publishing, California, 2000) which was later translated and published in German in August 2001. Dina shows how complementing a diet based on blood type with food-combining principles can help people maximize their health while also losing weight.
Oxford Medicare Advantage commissioned Dina to author An Alternative Path to Nutritional Wellness. Written for senior citizens, the manual gives the 65 plus generation key points in slowing down the aging process and maintaining optimal health through proper nutrition and use of supplements.
"A nutritional advocate who has contributed to national print publications and has appeared on numerous radio and television programs."
Prior to writing her own guide to nutrition and dieting, Dina contributed recipes and meal plans to the best selling book, "Dr. Peter D’Adamo’s Eat Right For Your Type" (with Catherine Whitney, G.P. Putnam’s Sons, New York 1996).
Several of her clinical successes in combining the blood-type theory for lifestyle attitudes with attaining optimal nutrition are documented in D’Adamo’s book. Dina is recognized in Robin Kueneke’s book Total Breast Health (Kensington Books, 1998) as one of three nutritionists in the United States that she recommends for breast cancer prevention.
