SHINE October 2014 Conference By Rita marie Loscalzo
Become the master of getting to the root cause of your clients’ low energy, mood swings, and chronic low vitality!
What you may have already noticed is that a huge percentage of your clients present with symptoms that can be attributed to disregulation of their adrenals, their thyroid, or both.
You’ll walk away from the S.H.I.N.E. Conference armed with the knowledge and tools to be the “go-to person” for solving tough hormone imbalance cases.
Implementing the nutritional endocrinology approaches to HPAT Axis imbalances will set you apart from the thousands of other health coaches and practitioners who simply don’t understand the intricate inner workings of these key glands, let alone how to restore balance.
You’ll love the checklists, charts, and resources designed to make your practice SHINE.

Dear Holistic Health Practitioner,
If you’re reading this, chances are you are passionately committed to making a profound difference in the world. You are dedicated to getting the absolute best results for your patients and clients.
Yet sometimes, it feels like you’re not making headway. Your confidence becomes shattered when you encounter those tough cases that you don’t feel qualified to solve.
You became a Health Professional because you want to help those who need it most. You may already be able to help lots of clients; however, you still feel defeated if even just one or two individuals leave because you are unable to help them solve their chronic and more complex health challenges.
The Ultimate Confidence Booster:
When YOUR expertise and knowledge gets results and
takes a client from frustration to elation!
The clients that get phenomenal results, especially after they’d just about given up hope, will become your raving fans.
What do I mean by “raving fans?”
Those are the people who will tell EVERYONE about you and provide you with the very best type of marketing… word of mouth advertising!
When you get incredible results with your clients, word of mouth referrals spread like wildfire!
With each complex case that you solve, you gain more and more confidence, satisfaction, and prosperity.
“…Dr. Ritamarie has given me the confidence and the extra behind-the-scenes skill to work with [clients] and be able to give them some real results!”

If you’re not making a huge impact as a healer due to a lack of confidence in your ability to help people with complex health issues, it’s time to add some tools to your health coaching toolkit.
Your lack of confidence in your skill set, in your ability to dig deep and truly understand what is going on in these challenging cases, has an impact on your practice.
Insecurity impacts your ability to market your business, set up consultations, and communicate in a way that exudes confidence and entices clients to sign up with you to get the results they desire and deserve.
I totally understand. It’s only natural, and I used to feel the same way.
When I used to speak to prospective patients, whenever I was very tentative in explaining what I did (fearing that they would have a health problem that I just couldn’t help to solve), they did not sign up because *I* gave those clients the feeling that I may not be able to help.
I can empower you to have a breakthrough in your confidence and ability
to deliver results to your clients — even the difficult ones.
As someone who’s been in practice for over 20 years, not only have I worked with thousands of clients and patients, I’ve worked with hundreds of practitioners as well, helping them to improve their competency with their clients.
And the thing I hear all the time is, “Dr. Ritamarie, I’d like to work with more people, but I’m not sure if I am going to be able to help them get results.”
I don’t know of a single practitioner who hasn’t had the experience of listening to a client’s complex history – their concerns, troubles, and the pile of tried and failed protocols – and thought, “I don’t even know where to start…”
You try the holistic nutrition approaches, the ones that often work like a charm, but the protocols don’t work this time. You suffer in quiet desperation because you know there absolutely has to be a way to help this person. You just wish you knew how.
I’ve learned the secret to consistently unravel even the most complex health mysteries
and provide reliable solutions that inspire clients to rave about their results
and refer new patients my way.
I took the bull by the horns and researched, dug in, investigated, questioned, read, and assessed until I began to see predictable patterns, WHEN I asked the right questions and looked in the right places.
I became a “master health detective” of sorts.
And wow, did that determination end up paying off for my clients as well as my practice…big time! I developed the strategies to help me solve even the toughest cases, break through that deep fear and doubt, and create a thriving practice.
My practice exploded very quickly. So quickly that I knew I had to train other practitioners to reach as many people as possible. My mission is to end needless, totally preventable suffering due to poor health.
I am still getting lots of requests for consults and it upsets me to have to turn them down because I simply don’t have the time anymore. The types of people who seek me out are those who have tried everything and are serious about restoring vibrant health.
That’s why I have decided to train other practitioners who are serious about learning and can handle my overflow…

The Best Way to Grow Your Practice is to Discover the Key to Unlocking Even the Most Difficult Client Cases
And the best way to get results with even the most challenging clients is to understand the complexities of the endocrine system.
After all, hormones are the “messengers of life”. They are powerful messages that travel through the blood stream from one part of the body to another.
Mastering the physiology and biochemistry of the intricate workings of hormones allowed me to understand what was really going on in chronic and complex cases and to create powerful, healing protocols personalized for each individual.
Correcting hormone imbalance requires sleuthing way beyond the obvious “sex hormones” of estrogen, testosterone, and progesterone. There are many, many more hormones involved than just those three, and usually they need to be balanced before going directly for the groin.
Hormonal imbalance is at the crux of a whole myriad of health issues (even some that don’t seem related) like:
- mood swings
- skin eruptions (acne)
- low libido
- sexual dysfunction
- memory loss
- anxiety attacks
- digestive issues
- blood sugar imbalance
- difficulty losing or gaining weight
…and that’s just the tip of the iceberg.
By acting as a hormone detective, I have guided thousands to restore their vitality, and now I would love to share my system with you, so you can balance your own and your clients’ hormones…no matter how “out of whack” they are.
The opportunity to be on the leading edge of health is NOW!
Nutritional Endocrinology offers you the key to unravel the profound impact of hormone imbalance on EVERY system of the body!
Join Me, Dr. Ritamarie, in Austin, Texas for the S.H.I.N.E Conference
Scientific and Holistic Investigation of Nutritional Endocrinology
a 3-Day Transformational Workshop
(Attend In Person or Via LIVE Webcast)
…where I’ll share powerful tools and take you by the hand, guiding you step-by-step through a system that you can utilize in your practice.
Learn to SHINE with tough cases, go beyond the basics, and set yourself apart in your community as a Shining Star health coach who is the “go-to” person for getting results.
Face it, there are now a lot of health coaches, health coaching programs, and a lot of people who need help. You learned the basics.
Now it’s time to step beyond and make your skill set brilliant and unique.
You’ll learn my step-by-step process for assessing your client’s health and bringing things into balance. Walk away from the weekend empowered to make a difference and put protocols to work for you on Monday morning.
Become a shining star health practitioner with a waiting list practice when you incorporate the S.H.I.N.E methodology.
S – Scientific
My office is lined with wall-to-wall shelves containing scientific; medical; and holistic research books, courses, and manuals.
Over the years I have studied, researched, and tested a lot of scientific information, then condensed it into bite-sized chunks you can learn in a weekend and apply in your practice when you get back home.
My years of work as a computer analyst before becoming a Doctor of Chiropractic; getting my master’s degree in nutrition; and studying acupuncture and herbal medicine, gave me the problem-solving skills I now use to solve people’s health challenges, instead of computer code. It’s the same methodology, just different hardware and software.
H – Holistic
Because the body is so interconnected, it’s impossible to solve tough cases unless you approach them from a holistic, big-picture viewpoint.
Many practitioners make the mistake of focusing on one isolated area, when in reality health is a continuum of interrelated systems that all work together to achieve homeostasis. Sometimes, seemingly “fixing” one area can actually exacerbate the issue or create a whole new set of problems!
My methodology shows you how to view the body and its systems in this manner, taking into consideration all the parts, no matter how seemingly insignificant.
I – Investigation
This is the part where it gets really exciting! After a while, you will invite tough cases to come to you, because you will experience a thrill in solving them — once you know where to look for clues.
When you approach health cases as a detective would and understand the underlying body processes, solving difficult health challenges becomes enjoyable.
N – Nutritional
Food is fuel. When you put the wrong fuel into a gas tank, the entire car breaks down. When you put premium fuel in the tank, the vehicle runs like a dream. Plus, there are additives that you can also put in the tank to boost performance and extend the life of the vehicle.
The same goes for the human body.
Over the last 25 years, I have discovered that certain nutritional components (offered via food, herbs, and supplements – in that order) can turn a patient’s health around — lightning fast!
While these are now extremely obvious to me, I still see lots of misinformation in the mainstream that, while well-intentioned, can often keep a patient in a state of ill health. I’ll share those insights with you.
E – Endocrinology
The endocrine system is the master control center that runs the entire body.
Science is still learning just how deeply intricate and interconnected our biochemical processes are.
With the first four letters of S.H.I.N. in place, the “E.” becomes much less intimidating and mysterious, and downright enjoyable and approachable for solutions.
Hormonal Imbalance and Chronic Symptoms — the Connection
In addition to the obvious, like low libido and sexual dysfunction, there is a long list of symptoms and diseases linked to hormone imbalance:
- Difficulty with weight gain / weight loss (yo-yo) can be due to leptin, ghrelin, insulin, estrogen, and growth hormone imbalances
- Fatigue generally involves the interaction between thyroid hormone, adrenal hormones, and insulin
- Headaches have been linked to imbalances in female sex hormones; migraines are often triggered by a drop in estrogen as occurs at the end of the female cycle
- Insomnia can be linked to interactions between cortisol, insulin, leptin, estrogen, and melatonin
- Even depression, anxiety, and mood swings have been linked to hormone imbalance — in particular — thyroid, cortisol, progesterone, and estrogen
The list of diseases and symptoms linked to hormone imbalance goes on and on:
- Diabetes, insulin resistance, and blood sugar imbalance
- Skin eruptions / acne
- Memory loss
- Digestive issues
- Cardiovascular problems
- Breathing issues
During the SHINE weekend, you’ll learn to evaluate hormone imbalances using functional medicine assessment tools and apply nature-based, holistic protocols to restore balance.
The hierarchy of interventions taught will be whole foods and herbs, lifestyle practices, specific targeted nutrients, holistic modalites and energetic practices, and bio-identical hormone replacement when necessary.
At this, our second S.H.I.N.E. Conference, we’ll focus in-depth on the HPAT Axis.
You’ve likely heard of the HPA Axis – it’s a buzz word in functional medicine circles. It involves evaluating and balancing the complexities of the Hypothalamic Pituitary Adrenal interactions.
The “T” stands for thyroid. Imbalances in HPA are a key factor in thyroid disorders. And in case you haven’t noticed, thyroid issues are epidemic. Synthroid and Levothyroxine (synthetic T4, the primary hormone made by the thyroid) are among the most widely prescribed medications in the US and possibly worldwide.

Putting SHINE Principles to Work With Complex Cases:
Is It Really Possible To Get Real Results?
After I started to S.H.I.N.E. in my own practice, I had countless breakthroughs with chronically ill patients whom no other practitioner could help. Well-meaning traditional doctors lead these patients down dead-end paths, because they didn’t dig deep enough or know how to find the right clues.
Here are just three of many successful and happy patient examples from my case files:

Instead of stacks of frustrating folders you feel afraid to open, wouldn’t you love to have file cabinets full of happy success cases like these?
The great news is you can!
“After years of working with many different clinical practitioners who couldn’t get to the bottom of my life-long health problems… I dropped 65 lbs of fat (and I look better than I did in high school) but what’s better than that is that I am no longer at risk for diabetes.”
Holistic practitioners and health coaches: Do you ever secretly wonder if you have the skills to get real-lasting results for your clients and patients?
If you’ve ever doubted your healing abilities, you’re not alone. When I first got my acupuncture license, I felt like a fraud. It’s not unusual to only get incremental shifts in wellness for your clients when y
