Fats as Friends, Fats as Foe: The balancing act at the heart of overcoming chronic fatigue and adrenal exhaustion

By Ritamarie Loscalzo


They’re in the news all the time. They are much maligned in many circles. Yet without then, life ceases to exist. We’re all caught up in the low fat craze. So what’s the truth about fats? Are they really the enemy or are they friends, so long as they stay in balance.

Tune in as I discuss this important matter.

FAts are also very important for hormone balance and mental health.  Without then, you’re at risk for thyroid and adrenal fatigue, hormone deficiencies and depression.

Be sure to eat a good source of omega 3 fats daily, along with a wide variety of antioxidant rich fresh foods.

For delicious recipes using the omega 3 seeds, check out my new book, Power Breakfast Ideas and Dehydration Bliss, an online video course thta teaches how to make delicious breads, crackers and other treats using seeds, nuts and vegetables.

What’s your favorite way to get your daily omega 3’s?  respond in the comment box below.

Love, health and Joy,

Dr. Ritamarie
