Tip of the Week:

Another step Dr. Ritamarie lays out in great detail for participants in her Coaching Programs is to take a look at one of your body’s best healing & repair mechanisms – Sleep.

Are You Getting Plenty of Quality Sleep Each Night?

Take some time this week to note your sleep habits.  The most healing sleep occurs during the hours of 10:00 pm and Midnight, so getting to bed by 10:00 pm each night is a very restorative step to take to heal & repair your body!




America’s #1 Fear Overcome, SAD to RAD Summer Detox, Recipes, & Video

June 5, 2013


Hi there Health-Seeker,

I am back in full gear after a busy Memorial Day weekend.   

My husband’s 4th Degree Black Belt promotion was inspiring, and our VITAL Healing Kitchen show on making easy, nutritious, and delicious salad toppers was a hit.  The rain cleared long enough for at least some of the potluck participants to eat outdoors and swim.  We had a larger than expected crowd and it was great.  We thought because of the holiday weekend and the rain it would be small.


If you are a VITAL member you will get the link to the Healing Kitchen Recordings Page, including a pdf document filled with recipes, by Friday.  If you’re not a member yet, join here:  


and you’ll get to enjoy the library of past shows while you wait for the latest to be edited and uploaded.


On Sunday I finally got to reorganize my desk.  It had gotten out of hand.  It’s like in the kitchen – when you can’t easily find things, it’s hard to make food.  Same for my desk .  I was finding it harder to write, research, and coach people because of the mess. 


I spent the day Monday creating a brand new video for the invitation to join our recently announced to the public Energy Recharge Coaching Program.  We were intending to announce it long ago, but we got so busy with program development and delivery, that it got delayed.


On the video I shared my family’s health saga, and I got really raw and real.




On a less personal note, I am excited about this week, and the upcoming SAD to RAD teleseminar about cleansing.  My first detox was what lighted my passion for health and nutrition, and completely turned around my health.


Cleansing is powerful!


Talk to you very soon.

Love, health, and joy,

Dr. Ritamarie Loscalzo

Garlic & Detoxification: The Possible Side Effects
by Dr. Ritamarie Loscalzo

The question has been brought up in my support calls over the years about some of the well-known detoxification foods, and their potential for side effects.  I thought I’d share some information about one of the most amazing foods on the planet: garlic.

Read about garlic’s possible side effects, how to avoid them, and other foods and herbs that also support phase 2 liver detox and can be used to support a successful detoxification program by clicking below.

“Cat Got Your Tongue?” – Overcome the Fear of Public Speaking

by Jonathan Bender, MS, MFA
Authenticity Coach & Intuitive Business Strategist 

Coaches and holistic practitioners may know that public speaking – be it in person to a group, or on a teleseminar – is a proven method to get known as an expert and get clients.  However, most don’t do it, because they have some degree of fear around it – or perhaps they do speak, but don’t enjoy it.

While this fear is common, it’s not commonly known that it isn’t difficult to stop having nervousness and discomfort.  In fact, they can be transformed into power and presence – which incredibly appeals to their ideal clients, creating greater trust.  When we are in our center, and know how to connect effectively, others are compelled to work with us.

Several factors are involved with finding greater confidence, including a degree of inner transformation (such as one’s relationship to oneself – including giving yourself permission to just be you). Of particular note to those somatically oriented is that the nervous system needs to be reoriented.

When we’re nervous, the nervous system is literally in overload. Embodied practices, such as letting go of physical tension, as well as grounding, are initial first steps in releasing old patterns – which creates space for you to step into the most powerful expression of yourself.

Over the past 17 years of coaching public speaking and performance, I’ve created a holistic and embodied system that helps absolutely anyone find their power, confidence and presence.

You are invited to a live, free video training, How to Transform the Fear of Public Speaking into Powerful Confidence, where I will detail the 5 Keys to Speaking with Confidence, how to find authentic presence, and a detailed look at fear that arises – and how to change it.

The video will be available afterward if you can’t make it live.

Growing Your Holistic Health Business

I don’t know about you, but I love to get “geeky”  when it comes to all the biochemistry of how our amazing bodies work.

I find that understanding biochemical pathways is the key to really digging deep into why  my patients are experiencing the health challenges they do, and to discovering how best to guide them back to health.

I love to understand the biochemistry of food and herbs as well, which helps me to “match thing up” really well and give my patients the guidance they need to restore balance.

If you are in my Client Assessment Tools for Holistic Practitioners course or my year long Energy Recharge System Practitioner certification, you’ve witnessed me geeking out.

But all the great understanding of biochemistry needs to be coupled with understanding how to run a successful practice that attracts your ideal clients.  I have a resource this week that I wish I had when I first started my practice back in 1992!  It would have saved me years of trial and error and got me out there helping many more patients than I did when I first started.

My friends Carey Peters and Stacey Morgenstern started a business called Holistic MBA to help heart centered nutrition and wellness coaches to transform more clients and make a bigger impact on the world.  Last week they announced the opening of registration for their new 4-month business training for holistic practitioners.  It’s called Holistic MBA Core, and you can find out more here:  https://drritamarie.com/wp-clone/go/HolisticMBACore.

They did a set of free videos with handouts that are extremely valuable and it’s a great way to check them out to see if you’d like to study with them.  You can catch the videos and checklists HERE:  https://drritamarie.com/wp-clone/go/HMBATraining

The free stuff is valuable even if you are not ready to take the leap.  Their programs complement mine beautifully!

Vanilla Blueberry Green Smoothie:

Another great recipe from the G.R.E.E.N. Cleanse recipe guide!


1/2 cup water
1 cup romaine lettuce
1 cup spinach
1 cup sprouts, your choice
1 cup frozen blueberries
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
stevia to taste as needed


Blend until smooth.

    I do not even know how I stopped up right here, but
    I believed this put up used to be good. I don’t recognise
    who you might be but certainly you are going to a well-known blogger if
    you aren’t already. Cheers!
