Practitioner Corner: Stand Out Among Health and Nutrition Coaches and Holistic Health Professionals

By Ritamarie Loscalzo

Beautiful young doctor suggesting us eating fresh vegetables

by Becoming a Certified Nutritional Endocrinology Practitioner


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.  Twenty eight 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.

I would like to share my systems with you.  So, if you would like to be among a small group of holistic health and wellness practitioners who get to study with me and get to use the tools it’s taken me decades to create, I encourage you to apply.

Spaces are limited and we are already over half full.


Get to be part of the ground floor of the Institute of Nutritional Endocrinology’s training programs, be among the first to get listed as a certified practitioner and open the doors to opportunities to be part of my team of functional endocrinology nutritionists, changing lives around the globe.

Applicants will be interviewed on a first come first served basis.

Are you ready to make a HUGE impact on the health of the world?  If you are passionate about health and helping, I would love to have you join the amazing group who have already said yes to themselves and making an impact.

Apply here for a strategy session to see if this is for you.


I’ve been in practice for 23 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.

If you’d like to be one of these nutritionists, click HERE to apply for a free Strategy Session and learn more about my Nutritional Endocrinology Practitioner Training.


With love and appreciation,


Dr. Ritamarie Loscalzo

    I am very interested in pursuing this field of study. I am currently researching schools and am wanting to verify that I am understanding your article correctly. Your program is for people that already have completed and care certified in holistic nutrition, correct?
    Thank you kindly in advance for your reply.

      Hi, Jenifer, I’m so happy you are interested in the Institute of Nutritional Endocrinology, and have included it in your list of schools you’re researching for pursuing nutrition. Our program is not just for people that are already certified in holistic nutrition. We have many people that are in the program that are going to have their first certification. I encourage you to fill out the application at http://www.NEPTApply.com. After you fill out the application, you will be brought to a place where you can schedule a time to talk with either Jan Chamberlain or me. There we will go over all the details and answer your questions. I look forward to speaking with you soon.
