Experience membership in Dr. Ritamarie’s VITAL Community where you’ll find
Vibrant Ideas and Tools for Awesome Living!
It’s one thing to follow a health program for 30 days and yet another to make permanent change. You’ll get access to a special 2-month introductory membership to the VITAL Community where you’ll find powerful inspiration and education with me, Dr. Ritamarie Loscalzo, MS, DC, CCN, DACBN.
Discover the support you need to implement healthy natural-living habits into your daily life.
Many of the people in the VITAL Community are participants in Dr. Ritamarie’s Vibrant Living programs like the Energy Recharge Coaching (ERC) program, the Sweet Spot Solution blood sugar balancing program, the Correcting Adrenal Fatigue and Exhaustion (CAFE) program, the Thyroid Revive and Thrive Program, the Gut Repair Program (GRAND), the GREEN Cleanse, and more!
Members of Vibrant Living programs learn to rebalance hormones, stabilize blood sugar, conquer food allergy symptoms, reduce the risk of heart disease and cancer, regain their energy, and lose weight.
Consider this idea from success-expert Tony Robbins:
“You see, in life, lots of people know what to do, but few people actually do what they know. Knowing is not enough! You must take action.”
This is your chance to become that action-oriented person, surrounded by a community of action-oriented health-seekers so that you can…
The bottom line is, when you belong to a community actively built on sharing success, you can’t help but be propelled forward!
Normally, to get access to the kind of resources you’ll find in the VITAL Community, you’d have to invest hundreds of dollars. If you’ve ever been to a health coach or a naturopath, then you already know how much it costs before you even get to ask a question.
The VITAL Community is my way of giving back… of making sure that EVERYONE has affordable access to the valuable information I think will truly make a difference in the world.
It’s my life’s mission to liberate people from their aching, inflamed, and chronically too-tired-to-do-that existence. There is sooooo much more to life.
Each month, I pick a theme on a hot topic in health, and I will offer YOU and my VITAL Community members 3 very special resources:
You’ll have access to recordings, sometimes video, sometimes audio, slides if applicable, and often and documents as bonuses. Solutions will be presented with natural living in mind, whether it’s using foods to help restore health or finding ways to help your body naturally rebalance itself.
Periodically, we’ll use this monthly call to host interviews with the leading thinkers or doers in the health industry so that you can stay up to date on the latest, relevant, and most exciting health research.
With Dr. Ritamarie and her coaches, you’ll find presentations that integrate the most effective natural healing protocols with cutting-edge science.
As a standard VITAL Community member, you’ll have access to the TWO MOST RECENT recordings and all current presentations for as long as you remain a member.
Plus, you’ll be able to help us plan future presentations on the health topics that matter most to YOU!
As a VITAL Premium member you’ll enjoy all the same valuable benefits that STANDARD members enjoy, PLUS, immediate access to the COMPLETE LIBRARY of recent and past recordings. That’s dozens of resources and recipes.
PREMIUM members can access all of these recorded health topic presentations and lots more:
Low Energy: How to Tell if Your Fatigue is Related to Adrenal Burnout: In the morning you fight with yourself to crawl out of bed. Throughout your day, you barely keep up with your to-do list, and the thought of anything “extra” to do fills you with dread. You really just want to get home, crawl onto the couch, and stay there. Everyone suffers from periods of low energy, fatigue, and exhaustion, but do you know if your low energy is a sign of adrenal burnout?
Cancer Fighting Foods: How to Nourish Your Body and Starve Cancer: The word “cancer” can create a gut-twisting, visceral reaction among people – especially if you have it, know someone who has it, or you’re afraid of getting it — which pretty much covers most of the western world population. Typical cancer treatments are intensive, invasive, and come with a barrage of side effects, which creates more fear and stress. If you’d rather load up your fork with nourishing foods than load your body with chemotherapy drugs, view this presentation.
Nutrigenomics: The Science of Optimizing Your Diet and Exercise According to Your Unique Genetics: Each person is unique — the health protocols that work for one may not work for you.

Whatever your personal health goal may be, study after study tells us that those who set goals and evaluate their progress regularly, celebrate successes, and ask for help when needed, make the most progress in all areas of their life including health, career, and personal relationships. That’s why we set up the Weekly Check-in Accountability journal.
I am dedicated to your success.
I know that you can have the life you desire in the body you desire. I also know it’s going to take support and accountability, along with the tools that inspire you take action to make the life and body of your dreams HAPPEN. So commit to taking just a few minutes to quietly reflect on the past week. Celebrate your successes and learn from the things that didn’t go quite the way you planned.
When you fill out your weekly check-in journal, you are holding yourself accountable. When you commit to three actions you’re going to take in the upcoming week, just the act of speaking it out loud makes it more real and increases the probability of you following through.
Taking a break from eating for a day or two as often as once a week can hugely benefit your desire to achieve and maintain your perfect body weight and keep your blood sugar and hormones in balance – especially growth hormone, insulin, and leptin.
These three hormones together determine whether you burn or store fat, create or waste away lean muscle tissue, and regulate how hungry you get between meals.
While a full detox program is like giving your body a much needed restorative deep sleep, you can think of a mini-cleanse as a way of letting your digestive system take a “nap”.
Research shows that intermittent fasting is more effective than calorie restriction for weight reduction, so every two weeks, we offer an optional group “mini-cleanse” where the goal is to follow one of my 3 mini-cleansing routines for approximately 24 hours.
You can access our private members page to ask Karen any questions you have about creating whole and living food dishes that support well-being. We’ll forward your questions to Karen and you can expect to receive a reply in about a week.
Karen Osborne, a lifetime active pianist, has been preparing gourmet raw food since being introduced to it in 2001.
Karen’s body became her new, finely tuned instrument after experiencing the energy and great health that followed the elimination of gluten, dairy and refined sugar from her diet and adding lots of greens. Karen’s passionate performances now are focused on creating raw food experiences as treats of harmonic sensations, developing flavors like a symphony. From delicate to dynamic, her food is music to the palate.
Specializing in tantalizing raw versions of favorites like Tiramisu, she loves to help people with the food part of their transition to a healthy lifestyle that also includes exercise, sun and sleep.
Karen is a graduate of both The Natural Epicurean and The Living Light Culinary Arts Institute. Karen sells her creations in the Austin, Texas area where she gives private instruction in Raw Food preparation, demonstrates Raw Food Joy regularly for a market in South Austin, manages Dr. Ritamarie’s Co-op and teaches classes.
