Practitioner Corner: Clinical and Holistic Nutrition Training Programs are on the Rise

By Ritamarie Loscalzo

Beautiful young doctor suggesting us eating fresh vegetables


Doctor with vegetablesHave you noticed how many health and wellness coaches are graduating from places like the Institute of Integrative Nutrition and similar schools?  I am amazed and excited by it.  Thirty years ago, when I was struggling with my own health, holistic practitioners were a rare breed and health coaches didn’t even exist.

The fact that there are so many holistic health and nutrition practitioners now says that as a society we are trending towards a new health care system, one that focuses on health rather than disease.  By taking a functional approach to heal challenges, rather than a symptom suppression model, we get to the root cause and truly improve the quality of people’s lives.

I see it all the time. And as a result of knowing how to dig into the physiology and biochemistry of my patient’s health challenges and applying the tools nature has provided, I am able to help people who’ve been looking for answers for many years, sometimes even decades.

Our western model of disease management rather than true health care needs to change.  People are ready for it.  They’re tired of bandaid care that doesnt get tot he root cause and help them to truly heal.

It’s not enough anymore to simply tell people to drink more water and eat more greens.  With all the toxicity in the enviromnent and food supply, I am seeing more and more people suffering from the effects of environmental toxins, overburdened detoxification systems, and out of balance hormones.  Nutritional Endocrinology is the key to getting results with complex cases.  The Institute of Nutritional Endocrinology’s programs offer indepth training and mentorship for a select few who are ready to change the face of health care.

I’ve been in practice for 25 years now, and I have a waiting list practice.  In fact, I am now hiring other nutritionists to consult with the people who find their way to my site everyday looking for help. These nutritionists have been personally trained by me to look for the clues, leave no stone unturned and get great results.

With love and appreciation,
