Reduce your appetite by sleeping more!


Brain fog and sluggish metabolism  can also  be related to sleep deprivation.

Make sure you have a good, restful sleep each night and if you can, take short power naps during the day.
You will not only feel more clear and alert, but you will also have less craving for comfort foods, especially carbs!

Balancing Hormones and Reversing Dyslexia


Hi Health-Seeker,


Thanks for all your well wishes. I can feel the love and support as my elbow continues to heal. I am out of the splint and in a brace, and have just begun to type a little with my left hand in short spurts.

I am excited to welcome back to the radio show my friend and colleague Dr.  Phyllis Books, author of “Reversing Dyslexia: Improving Learning and Behavior without Drugs“.

I am always amazed to learn more from Dr. Books. In fact, I had no idea my child could be dyslexic because he's never had trouble with reading, but as she pointed it out, there is more!  It’s a type of brain-body disconnect that effects learning, focus and concentration as well.

Join me as we explore some simple assessments you can do at home to determine if you or a loved one shows subtle signs of dyslexia. Dr Books has techniques to correct this; you won't want to miss this show.

For more details and show access click HERE.

Enjoy one of my favorite hormone balancing recipes from a live class I did a couple of years ago with chef Karen Osborne. The entire class was recorded and is available for 30% off this month. There's a hormone balancing talk, recipe demos, and lots of great recipes and resources. Click below for this fantastic deal, your discount will be reflected in the cart once you add it:

Finally, watch your inbox later this week as we release a video series about the hormones related to belly fat, brain fog and burnout.  We’ll be giving away the series plus some hot new bonuses.

I am going to rest my arm now –  and have another green smoothie —it's day 2 of the G.R.E.E.N. Cleanse.  Registration is closed for the fall cleanse…but stay tuned for an announcement in November of a very special winter cleanse.  You can still join now and do the cleanse on your own, plus get access to the cleanse in December.

Big Hugs and lots of Appreciation, 


Dr. Ritamarie Loscalzo

The Top Ten Hormone Balancing Foods for Energy, Fitness and Fun 

I love working with hormones. When we can bring balance to hormones, everything starts to improve.image001

When I say hormone balance, you, like most people , probably start thinking about  menopause, PMS, loss of libido  and other female issues. Yet there is so much more, and often these “female” hormone imbalances are caused by imbalances in what I call the “survival hormones.”

I especially love helping people restore their energy and overcome fatigue by restoring balance to adrenal, thyroid imbalance, and blood sugars in balance hormones.

Even when someone presents with symptoms of female hormone imbalance, I often start with what I have come to term the”survival” hormones. They are the hormones that are vital to our day to day functions and have daily rhythms. Not to say I don’t deal with the sex hormones, which tend to have a monthly cycle. Those are vital too. And they are intimately related to the day to day hormones.

Here are some of my favorite tools for restoring hormone balance.

And guess what?  They are all foods!


Genes and Thyroid

I've been very fascinated with the effects of genes on health. Not that I take the stance of blaming things on genes. Rather it's from the standpoint of modifying the epigenic expression via diet, lifestyle and targeted supplementation.

Here’s something from Dr. Ben Lynch at about genes and thyroid:



 Spinach Pumpkin Pesto


This versatile low fat, vegan version of pesto is great in a wrap or as a party dip with some crudites.

  • 2 cups spinach

  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup fresh basil
