Addressing Adrenal Fatigue and Sluggish thyroid: Start with a Detox

By Ritamarie Loscalzo


Everyone is always looking for answers that are complicated, sophisticated and sexy.  The truth is, most health issues have simple solutions.  Notice I said simple, not easy.

In fact, some of the simplest solutions of all are often the hardest to follow.

1- Fresh food: When you’re running around chasing after deadlines, it’s not always easy to find fresh food.  It’s certainly not in the vending machines or the fast food joints.

2- Fresh, clean water: Unless you carry your own, it’s not generally available, although more and more places carry bottled water.  I was in a restuarant last week with family that didn’t!  What a shock.

3- Fresh air : Our air is filled with chemicals and pollution.  Unless you live in a pristine area far far away form the cities, clean air is hard to find.  And the indoor air is even worse;  it’s polluted with all the chemicals used in building materials, carpets, paint and cleanin supplies.

4 – Exercise : When you’re working 12 hour a day, taking care of kids, and running a mile a minute to keep up with obligations, finding time to exercise can be a challenge, unless you are dedicated and make it an important part of your day.

5- Positive thoughts : If you listen to the news, read the newspaper or watch TV, the constant reporting of terrifying events, ominous predictions and financial gloom are enough to wear your positive thoughts to the bone.

6- Fulfilling Relationships: When you’re working hard just to survive, it’s easy to overlook the kind words and deeds and special touches that keep your relationships flourishing.

7- Sunshine : It’s lovely, abundant in many parts of the world and ellusive to many because we stay cooped up indoors working and taking care of our families.


Your health would improve dramatically if you could incorporate all of the above SIMPLE things into your life on a regular basis.

The hard, cold  reality is, try as you might, you’ll slip up on some of these “simple” health tips more than you’d like.  And when you do, your detoxification pathways suffer and you open yourself for fatigue, lack of focus and illness.

That’s why I developed a variety of cleansing and detoxification strategies that I perform at least 3-4 times a year to detoxify my system.

So just how toxic are you?  Because there are so many genetic and environmental differences between people, the buildup of toxins effects each of us a bit diferently.

I have a test you can take to assess how much your health has been effected by toxicity.  The test has ben around for a long time, and was originally developed by a mentor of mine , Dr. Jeffrey Bland, back in the 1980s.

My webmaster computerized it so that you can take it and get instant feedback.

Here’s the link.


It takes about 2 minutes.  Invest 2 minutes in yourself today to determine how toxic you are and get a personalized email with tips for improving your health.


To your health and Vibrance
