The Secrets to Longevity and Vibrant Health

By Ritamarie Loscalzo


As we head toward the finish line of 2012 and the starting line of 2013, we enter the time of year where two things happen. First, people tend to indulge and over indulge during the holidays. They throw caution to the wind and say, “I’ll get back on track after the first of the year.”

Second, the new year hits, resolutions are made, and we go into a sprint toward good health, when we are really only at a fast walking level. So we tend to crash and burn.

This year, why not do things different? Gather your information, set up a plan and take it one day at a time.

Joining Dr. Ritamarie on the show this week is Dr. Craig Sommers.

About Dr. Sommers

Craig Sommers was living the standard American lifestyle, eating the standard American diet (SAD), until the early 1990’s when his mother was diagnosed with cancer and then heart disease.

While visiting his mother in the hospital, after one in a series of unsuccessful surgeries, a mysterious stranger entered her hospital room. He handed Mrs. Sommers his business card and suggested that she give him a call if she was interested in learning how to heal herself through diet and lifestyle changes. Neither Craig nor his mother ever heard from that man again, but Craig was so inspired by his suggestion that he began to seek out information on Natural Healing.

Since that day in the hospital, Dr. Sommers has single mindedly pursued knowledge of holistic healing, nutrition, and lifestyle. He first learned enough to help his mother reverse heart disease and then began to peruse natural health for himself and others.

He opened a health food store on Long Island and when that became too stressful, he sold the store and pursued a doctorate in naturopathy. Dr. Sommers now travels the globe giving lectures on how to achieve optimum health through proper nutrition and lifestyle habits.

He is also a certified yoga instructor, certified nutritionist and the author of Raw Foods Bible, a comprehensive easy to read guide to the optimum diet and lifestyle. 

In this show learn:

  • What cooking strips from your foods
  • What is mobile phone radiation and how does it affect your health
  • Cosmetics: Switching from commercial to clean and why it’s so important to do so

    I am into health (cept for the odd cigar) and I take spirulina each and every day and on sundays I take a lot of spirulina with some aspirin to clean out my system.
    My health is wonderful. Spirulina is amazing stuff. It has nearly every good nutrient you need in perfect synergy to absorb.
    Try it for 6 months and you will see for yourself.
    I have amazing health now.
