Embrace the Power of Food as Medicine to
Get Results with Even the Toughest, Most Complex Cases …
So Your Clients Achieve Optimum Health
And You Create a Rewarding and Thriving Business
Nutritional Endocrinology is one of the fastest-growing, up-and-coming branches of functional and holistic health care and YOU can get in on the leading edge.
Become the hero, the “miracle-worker”, when you learn to identify the root causes
of imbalances in your clients (even when it seems like they’re doing everything “right”) …
From the desk of Dr. Ritamarie
Dear Holistic Health Practitioner,
If any of the following sounds familiar, I want to share some good news with you based on what’s going on in our healthcare industry … and the most innovative science:
- When clients present with complex symptoms or conditions you haven’t dealt with before, you cringe. You’re not always confident you can get to the root of why they’re feeling the way they are, although you want nothing more than to help them.
- Some of your clients are doing everything you recommend — they’re eating well, they’re exercising, and they’ve adopted healthy lifestyles — but they’re still suffering and you don’t know why.
- You want to go beyond the Band-Aid paradigm of today’s medical system and truly empower your clients to health, so they can live with renewed vitality and happiness. You feel you need additional training to do that.
- You hear so often from people who are frustrated because no one has been able to help them achieve the results they desperately seek. You want to gain the skills and tools you need to assess what’s going on so you can help them to FINALLY heal!
- You’re fed up with the shortcomings of the current healthcare system, and you want to be part of creating a new paradigm that focuses on health and healing rather than disease management.
The Bottom Line: You’re passionate about helping people restore balance and find true healing so they can live with more energy and vitality. You want to play a role in dramatically improving the quality of life for people who seek your help.
If this sounds like you, you’re in the right place. And you’re not alone.
~ Dr. Claudia Gabrielle, MD
behind-the-scenes skill to work with [clients] and be able to give them some real results!”
~ Alisha Bright
Physician Assistant and Private Holistic Health Coach at The Bright Stuff
Our current healthcare industry is broken.
Operating on a Band-Aid paradigm, it treats symptoms rather than seeking root causes, using drugs to make people feel better without actually healing what’s wrong.
Consider these numbers – quite staggering if you ask me:
- Nearly half of all Americans — 133 million — have a chronic condition, and the US Department of Health and Human Services estimates that number will climb to about 157 million Americans by 2020.
- In the US, 78% of healthcare dollars are spent on behalf of people with chronic conditions, according to an article by Gerard Anderson, MD, in the June 2004 issue of Public Health Reports.
- The Thyroid Federation International estimates that there are as many as 300 million people worldwide suffering from thyroid dysfunctions.
- 60 to 70 million people are affected by digestive diseases.
Why are we so sick?
As a whole, humans are sick thanks to chronic high stress levels that result from our fast-paced society, as well as “convenience” diets, which are high in fat, sugar, and processed foods.
What if you could address the underlying causes of your clients’ health challenges, using food as medicine, instead of dangerous pharmaceuticals that may have serious side-effects?
We can empower our clients with the best tools science has to offer, so they can find and repair the root causes of their symptoms. And we can empower them to use FOOD as Medicine, rather than dangerous medications, to achieve true health and vitality.
We can say good-bye to the Band-Aid approach, and together we can build a new paradigm, one where we focus on using science to assess what’s really going on – and then take steps to restore balance.
The catch: to get different results, you must do things differently.
When you learn to use the healing power of food as medicine, you will be able to awaken your clients’ inner healers, and empower them to rebalance and strengthen their bodies so that they can begin to turn back the hands of time.
The result: they feel better; they look better; they start to enjoy their lives more.
And they refer to you as their hero, their miracle worker – the one who gave them back their life.
Of course you know that you’re just the catalyst. They do the healing. But doesn’t it feel great to be able to have such a profound impact on so many lives?
My mission is to give you the information, strategies and resources to feel confident when confronted with those tough cases.
Here’s a bit about myself, and how I’m qualified to guide you.
My journey to this place began with my own health problems in my 20s. I was an overachiever dedicated to doing and “having it all.” I worked long hours and played hard, so I drank caffeine and ate sugary snacks to fuel the crazy energy level my activities required. Then I got really sick — sinus problems, chronic fatigue, headaches, brain fog, allergies, and digestive issues — and doctors couldn’t figure out what was wrong with me.
So I became a “Master Health Detective.”
I researched, dug in, investigated, questioned, read, and assessed until I began to see predictable patterns. I learned to ask the right questions, and I learned the right places to look for answers.
I studied my own biochemical function and discovered where things were working optimally, and where they were out of balance.
Then I used the healing power of nature – food – as the core of my balancing protocols.
I turned my own health around, and as a result…
I Developed Strategies to Help Me Solve Even the Toughest,
Most Complex Cases, Break Through Fear and Doubt,
and Become the Go-To Expert in My Field.
People heard about the results I was helping my clients achieve, and my practice grew so quickly I knew I had to train other practitioners — like you — so that together, we could build a new paradigm … a true Health Care system.
My mission, and the mission to which I’m fiercely committed, is to end needless, preventable suffering due to poor health. How? First, by using science’s most innovative tools to uncover systemic imbalances. Then, by applying the wisdom of Hippocrates:
and using cutting-edge holistic and nutritional approaches to restore balance.
I’ve received so many requests for consults, and even though I’d be honored to meet with each and every person who wants to, I just don’t have time.
Which is why I created my annual SHINE Conference – specifically for practitioners who are serious about learning and who are as passionate as I am about true healing.
At SHINE, I’m committed to providing THE most up-to-date scientific research and data, and coming together with dedicated practitioners like you, to share ideas, tips, and camaraderie in the pursuit of our mission.

Join Me, Dr. Ritamarie, for the 2017
Scientific and Holistic Investigation of Nutritional Endocrinology
A 3-Day Transformational Event
Friday, November 3rd – Sunday, November 5th, 2017
Hyatt Regency Lost Pines Resort and Spa, Lost Pines, Texas
Build a Waiting List Practice When You Incorporate the S.H.I.N.E Methodology.
At SHINE Live 2017, my guest speakers and I will share exactly what you need to know to implement the power of food as medicine so you can get straight to the root of your clients’ biggest problems, restore balance, and empower true healing.
When you understand and implement the power of food as healing,
you’ll be able to empower your clients to correct the root cause of their low energy
and other symptoms and their inner healer will be able to repair — body, mind and spirit
— so they can experience optimum health.
From the mouths of the ancients comes truth that is vital in modern times.
At SHINE, you’ll learn exactly what you need to know to guide your clients to the right decisions about their health and habits, now and in the future.
Here’s just a taste of what you’ll learn during our time together:
“Dr. Ritamarie has an amazing depth of knowledge, strategies, and the ability to make things crystal clear — and she is so inspiring!!
The most valuable benefit of IRSPT for me was coming to terms with my own insulin resistance — I was in huge denial — and how acutely aware I am of how my clients need this work too. I really didn’t see that before.
Dr. Ritamarie is the best healer and teacher I know. I feel blessed to have found her.”
~ Judith Hasselblad, MS, Inner Wisdom Weight & Wellness Coach
~ Beverly O’Brien, Physician Assistant and Health Coach
My heart of hearts has always known that the only real way to help people gain true and deep healing is through proper diet and lifestyle and to bring the body what it really needs in order to maintain a harmonious balance. It is so rewarding to have found a program that has brought that type of knowledge to many other practitioners and can help spread the real truth when it comes to healthcare done the right way.
Dr. Ritamarie’s very detailed science knowledge and background and her ability to relate that information in a way that makes it very clear are absolutely the most valuable part of my experience with her.
I will be making sure that my patients/clients understand some of the basic science behind what they are doing and not just have them blindly following some diet or lifestyle changes because they have been told they need to. I feel that it is imperative for patients/clients to know that how and what they eat, how they exercise, and sleep are foundations for how well they are prepared to fully and energetically participate in their lives to achieve all that they wish.”

~ Lynn Mahler
A Dr. Ritamarie client with friends and family who are
WOWING over her transformation!
Here’s how we’re going to do this, together.
So, what’s the investment for all of this?
It’s obvious that whatever it is, you’re sure to earn a significant return, because when you know how to get to the root cause of your patients’ and clients’ symptoms, and how to restore balance using food-based solutions, your clients will get the results they so badly want and need. As a result, they’ll rave about you, and new clients will be lining up at your door.
Given the benefits you will undoubtedly experience, I believe this 3-day experience is seriously worth tens of thousands of dollars. Of course, I won’t charge you that. In fact, the investment for SHINE 2017 is just a fraction of that amount.

So are you ready? Or do you still have questions?
Below, I’ve included some of the questions I hear most frequently, and their answers, to help you decide whether SHINE is a good match for you.
Q: How can I justify this expenditure?
A: Once you start implementing what you learn at SHINE, including the assessments and protocols — which you can do immediately because we’ll give you a step-by-step guide to doing so — your clients and patients will begin experiencing real results. Your business will grow naturally! It’s likely that you’ll have enough new clients and patients to cover the initial investment in no time. Plus, you’ll earn CEUs valid with NANP.
Q: I don’t know if I can take 3 days away from my practice and my real life. How do I justify the time investment?
A: Once you learn the information, techniques, and skills I’m sharing during SHINE, especially how to get to the root cause of your clients’ symptoms, your practice will become so much more efficient. You’ll be able to more quickly pinpoint what’s wrong and how to fix it. You’ll spend less time with each patient or client, freeing you up to meet with others. The choice is yours. Spend many months or even years of your valuable time researching and experimenting, like I did, trying to figure out what works. Or, you can accelerate your learning curve and confidently create superstar results in just 3 days!
Q: This information seems complicated. How can I be sure I’ll understand it and be able to use it in my practice?
A: The endocrine system is very complicated. I’ve been teaching for over 20 years, and I’ve distilled the teachings into bite-sized pieces to make it easy to understand and implement. I’m giving you everything you need to master the art of using food as medicine to get to the root cause of your clients’ health challenges. Plus, I’ve included plenty of Q&A and discussion time in the event’s schedule, and you’ll have time to discuss ideas and concepts with your brilliant colleagues. I’ve even included support after the event through the VIP post-conference teleseminars, so you can get guidance with implementation.
If you’re ready to serve your clients on a whole new level, and to feel confident in your ability to get to the root causes of even the most challenging, complex cases, then I invite you to SHINE!
