Another Favorite “F-Word” – Plus a March Recipe for You!

By Ritamarie Loscalzo


Hello, Health-Seeker!

“Wow” is the best word that pops into mind right now.

I had the most incredible weekend connecting with over 120 amazing beautiful souls at Spring into Vitality.

I realized just how much I LOVE speaking to large audiences, and sharing my message of empowerment and inspiration.

We are just getting back to business. I took a day and a half off to sleep, reflect, and bask in the joy of the event.

I have lots to share and will do so over the next couple of weeks.

I have an opportunity for you to share in the event in case you couldn’t make it and really wanted to. I also have a way for us to get to know each other deeply over the coming year, and for me to work side-by-side with you to personalize your health plan and achieve a level of health that will take your life to a place you only dreamed about – or beyond!

Join me for the radio show tomorrow and get a glimpse of what’s possible for you!

Love, Health, and Vibrant Energy,

Dr. Ritamarie Loscalzo

How to Make Fitness FUN!

By Dr. Ritamarie Loscalzo

Previously, I talked about my four favorite “F-Words.”

They are: FUN, Food, Fitness, and Flexibility.

The Physiology of Fun, and The Sweetest of Them All (Part 1 and Part 2) delved into the Fun and Food words.

Today I would love to write and share about Fitness.

It’s no secret that I love fitness! And when I find workouts I enjoy (like I demonstrate in the video on my blog post), I have to share them with you.Read the rest of the article here

Thyroid Health: Solving Your Energy Puzzle Through the Often-Overlooked Clues Even Your Doctor May Not Know

It’s amazing that one small, butterfly-shaped gland at the base of your neck can have such a profound effect on your overall health and energy.

The healthy function of your thyroid is essential to your metabolism and energy, and if you’re not producing energy the way you should, your whole body suffers the consequences.

There are ways to determine if your thyroid gland is working too hard or not hard enough that even your doctor may not know.
