Solve the Thyroid Mystery – Plus a Detox Recipe!
By Ritamarie Loscalzo
This past weekend I had the privilege and honor of attending David Wolfe’s Longevity Now Conference, and meeting some amazingly knowledgeable and compassionate souls in the world of holistic health care.
There were estimated to be 1300 people in the room.
That blows my mind. People came from all over the globe, seeking to connect with others also passionate about creating health of mind, body, spirit, and planet.
One of the highlights was meeting Hal Huggins, author of It’s All In Your Head and many other books about the dangers of dental amalgams and other conventional medical practices. He has risked life and limb – literally – to buck the American dental association and colleagues in his profession and speak the truth.
In fact he shared that his wife divorced him after she got shot with a bullet intended for him! She said it was too dangerous to be married to such a renegade.
At age 88, his mind is still sharp and he is doing cutting edge research related to mouth microbes and DNA.
I invited him to speak on my Vibrant Living Health SolutionsBlog Talk Radio Show, and he accepted. I will keep you posted. He shared things I didn’t know about dental implants and the risks associated with improperly done extractions. Scary but empowering at the same time.
Tune in to this Thursday’s radio show where I review a few of the highlights of the Longevity Now Conference and upcoming guests, as well as talk about the connection between hormone balance and detoxification. I am also happy to report that my college son is finally shaking the cold/bronchitis that has been visiting him for the past few weeks, and will be back home next week for the summer! And my son Kevin hit a home run in last Monday night’s game. 🙂
Enjoy the juicy articles and upcoming events we have planned for you. And the yummy detox recipe!
Enjoy your week!

Assessing Your Own Thyroid Function by Dr. Ritamarie Loscalzo
In last week’s feature article, I explained how your thyroid gland is a butterfly-shaped gland located in the front part of your neck whose main job is to control the amount of oxygen utilized by each and every cell in your body.
Most doctors don’t have a thorough understanding of how to assess thyroid function. They generally label it as either overactive, underactive or cancerous.
The treatment is either synthetic T4 medication, for underactive, or radiation followed by synthetic T4 medication.
There is a better way.
Learn about the most overlooked causes of thyroid imbalance, and likely know more about assessing your own thyroid than most doctors will ever tell you, or even know for themselves. Read the rest of the article here

One of the first and basic levels of balancing hormones as well as claiming overall health has to do with detoxification, specifically of the liver. But…there’s a lot of misinformation out there about how to detox the liver. Many do not even know that it must be done in TWO phases.

Nutrigenomics: The Science of Optimizing Your Diet and Exercise According to Your Unique Genetics
TONIGHT! Wednesday, May 8th, 2013, 7:30 pm
Each person is unique — the health protocols that work for one may not work for you. While health practitioners and experts can make educated guesses about the best diet and lifestyle changes for you, knowing your genetic tendencies can boost the success of your results. Getting tested to determine your genetic tendencies can help you make lifestyle choices that strengthen any weaknesses and help you live a vibrant life.

by Nomi Shannon & Dr. Ritamarie Loscalzo 95% of people who go raw FAIL within the first year or two…Why?
Over the past 27 years since committing to a raw food healthy lifestyle myself, and helping others to do the same, I began to notice repeating patterns of why most people fail with in in the long-term. So did my friend Nomi Shannon, author of The Raw Gourmet Book (and many others).
Together Nomi and I compiled answers to the most pressing questions people have about going and staying raw for the long haul, and we answered them in our new CD/Book combo.
We’ve compiled over half a century of our experience, training, hands-on know-how and wisdom and transformed this life-changing knowledge into TWO easy-to-understand accessible formats:
It’s available to you as either a physical Book & CD set that is mailed to you, or as a digital eBook (PDF) and MP3 (Audio) downloadable set.
Are you working with clients, patients, family members, friends or even yourself, and hitting a wall? The more you try to help them detox the worse they get? Or they seem to be following much of what you advise with respect to diet, exercise, vitamin D, digestion and so much more, but not getting the great results you expect?
It just may be that there are undetected genetic “defects” called single nucleotide polymorphisms, aka SNPs, pronounced snips.
These are tiny alterations in the nucleotides in particular genes that create havoc with detoxification. There are particular pathways called methylation pathways which, when less than optimal, can create major health issues.
Our VITAL call this month will provide a general overview of a new branch of health care called Nutrigenomics.
It is TONIGHT, Wednesday, May 8 at 7:30 pm Central Time.
Next month in our Energy Recharge Coaching program we’ll spend a lot more time talking about Nutrigenomics and offer strategies, assessment tools, and more.
There is also a lot of information online, if you know where to look for it.
A company called “23 and Me” offers a test for only $99, and it assesses most of the SNPs that are amenable to nutrition and lifestyle approaches to “band aid” the DNA and alter the epigenetic expression.
