In addition, she has worked with both integrative and functional medicine doctors to produce their books and healthy eating programs, learning the science behind healing foods.
After graduating with honors from the Institute of Culinary Education in 2003, she worked in kitchens throughout Manhattan as well as interning with cookbook authors like Tyler Florence of the Food Network where she learned recipe development first hand.
Shortly after, she pursued a career as a private chef for the following three years and worked in the homes of exclusive clientele such as Annie Leibovitz, Susan Sontag, and Jerry and Jessica Seinfeld. Throughout her hectic restaurant and private cheffing career, she maintains a strong yoga and meditation practice which enabled her to stay strong in a highly competitive field.
Searching for a spiritual practice where she could incorporate her knowledge of healing foods and specifically cooking technique, she was led to investigate the wonders of ancient alchemy.
Through alchemy, and her studies with the Alchemy Guild, she shares her knowledge on how to combine spiritual practice with activities in the kitchen and beyond.
Apart from her books, television appearances and writings, Iserloh continues to empower people to take a greater role in their holistic health and enjoy life more.

I just want people to have to be able to heal themselves, people that are suffering, need to understand that you have to heal holistically to really heal properly. So that's why Mind-Body Medicine is such a huge platform for me, and why support functional and integrative medicine.
I work with these amazing healers and doctors. That's what I want to teach people because I didn't really heal from my illnesses until I heal them in the body and the emotions that are in the mindset. When you do that, you adjust your energy, everything goes up so that you can follow what your life's purpose is. and, or just, you know, have a happy family life. Just enjoy your life.
People are starting to understand that this is what lifestyle medicine is, it is for medicine as holistic health. But you just have to make sure you're doing it the correct way, that you're not giving weight to one more than another. In traditional medicine, they think it's all about the body. Now, with what we've learned through science, spiritual practices, mindset, the special plant foods, I call the plant healers that heal people, it's got to be done in tandem. You gotta have each part equal, you know, equal player and band-aids.
