Austin, Texas

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!

raving fansThe 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!”


~ Alisha Bright
Physician Assistant and Private Holistic Health Coach at The Bright Stuff

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.

how to approach prospective health clients with confidenceYour 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.

health practitioner confidenceAs 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.

master health detectiveI 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…

“I wish I could download her brain into my brain — it’s fabulous!”

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.

Key Practitioner Strategies for SuccessAfter 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:

  • fatigue
  • hormone imbalance symptoms and conditionsheadaches
  • mood swings
  • skin eruptions (acne)
  • low libido
  • sexual dysfunction
  • memory loss
  • arthritis
  • anxiety attacks
  • fibromyalgia
  • insomnia
  • 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!

SHINE Conference - Scientific and Holistic Investigation of Nutritional Endocrinology

Join Me, Dr. Ritamarie, in Austin, Texas for the S.H.I.N.E Conference
Scientific and Holistic Investigation of Nutritional Endocrinology

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.

SHINE Conference Register
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

S.H.I.N.E Conference - Scientific and Holistic Investigation of Nutritional EndocrinologyMy 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

S.H.I.N.E Conference - Scientific and Holistic Investigation of Nutritional EndocrinologyBecause 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

S.H.I.N.E Conference - Scientific and Holistic Investigation of Nutritional EndocrinologyThis 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

S.H.I.N.E Conference - Scientific and Holistic Investigation of Nutritional EndocrinologyFood 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

S.H.I.N.E Conference - Scientific and Holistic Investigation of Nutritional EndocrinologyThe 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:

  • fat, foggy, fatiguedDifficulty 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
  • Arthritis
  • Fibromyalgia
  • 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.

HPA Axis DiagramAt 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:

Real-World Patient Hormone Success Case File #1:
Fatigue, depression, chronic pain, and weight that just wouldn’t budge

This client had been diagnosed with an autoimmune disease, was on antidepressants, anti-inflammatories, and pain medications; still she suffered. A trip to the grocery store left her in need of a nap. Helping her kids with homework was like running a marathon. She was tired of being tired, in pain, and in need of so many medications.

SHINE Case File 1We did some tests, discovered imbalances in her adrenals and thyroid hormones, some food sensitivities, and fatty acid imbalances. Through a personalized supplement program, detoxification, diet changes, and instruction on how to care for her body, she improved.

Within 9 months she was off all medications, had regained her energy, and was happily referring friends and family members. Now she holds a full-time job, volunteers at her church, and has plenty of energy to socialize and take care of her granddaughter.

Real-World Patient Hormone Success Case File #2:
Two decades of fatigue, weight gain, digestive problems, and brain fog so thick she was about to lose her business because she couldn’t focus

Case Client #2 had switched to all-natural home and self-care products, was eating organic food, and “thinking positive thoughts”, so she was mystified as to why her health was still wretched.

SHINE Case File 2She’d been to doctor after doctor, looking for answers. No one could find anything wrong with her. After a thorough case history, I ordered some lab tests and discovered she had an autoimmune thyroid condition, adrenal fatigue, insulin resistance, low stomach acid, fat maldigestion and a toxic liver.

I customized a diet, supplement, and lifestyle program for her, coached her through implementation, and within 4 months her weight was down 30 pounds, her brain function had returned, and she was able to quadruple her income.

None of her doctors had realized that her problems were hormonal. Through application of my Nutritional Endocrinology principles, we were able to give her back her life.

Real-World Patient Case Hormone Success Case File #3:
Depression at mid-cycle, no libido, and fatigue

Case Client #3’s doctor prescribed Prozac, which she did not want to take, so she consulted with me for an alternative.

Testing revealed she was low in testosterone, had adrenal fatigue, and had an imbalance in the neurotransmitter serotonin triggered by excess estrogen mid-cycle.

SHINE Case File 3After a few months, the depression was gone, some OCD symptoms she’d experienced her whole life disappeared, and her husband told her he couldn’t keep up with her sexually.

The couple had been trying to conceive a second child a few years before, but since nothing was happening, they’d given up on getting pregnant again. Can you imagine their surprise when she got pregnant less than a year later?

“In 8 months, I’ve gone from a size 12 to a size 2!”

“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.”

Sharla JacobsHolistic 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 you’re first starting off.

What every holistic practitioner dreams of is to become so phenomenal at what they do that the referrals start streaming in.

This is why I want to introduce you to MY health coach for the past two years. Here is what she did for me (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.

She discovered the following problems during our work together:

  • leptin resistance
  • candida
  • borderline hypothyroid (not fully diagnosable on lab tests but still causing lethargy)
  • methylation cycle mutations
  • H. pylori
  • insufficient iodine
  • leaky gut
  • not just gluten intolerance but intolerance to ALL grains
  • food sensitivities
  • adrenal exhaustion[/two_columns_2]

The list goes on. One-by-one, we tackled these difficult problems and I am a new woman.

Now, Dr. Ritamarie has been practicing for over 20 years and she is the founder of the Institute of Nutritional Endocrinology.

And it is so fortunate that she is now teaching other holistic practitioners and health coaches how to use the diagnostic and treatment protocols that have been responsible for major healing and lifestyle changes for so many people.

Practitioners Who Now S.H.I.N.E: Success Stories!

These practitioners have worked with Dr. Ritamarie within her Insulin Resistance Solution Practitioner Training (IRSPT) course, a program designed to guide practitioners through the complexities of balancing their clients’ blood sugar. See what they have to say about their learning experience with Dr. Ritamarie!

[content_box_yellow width=”75%”]

“I already use IRSPT with my clients with remarkable results and can nail my clients’ problems right away.”

Guylaine Lacerte - Nutrition CoachI couldn’t acquire this knowledge anywhere else. I like the fact that Dr. Ritamarie walks the talk and is familiar with a raw food diet, the same diet that I’ve been following for two decades.

For my own personal benefit, working with Dr. Ritamarie helped me be aware of my blood sugar spike triggers; this is exactly the resource I needed to fine tune my diet and lifestyle accordingly. She answered many questions I had around fruit and gave me the proper knowledge to help others have it right while on the raw food path.

For my practice, the knowledge I gained is invaluable. I already use IRSPT with my clients with remarkable results and can nail my clients’ problems right away. IRSPT gave me the knowledge I was missing to really help my clients. Blood sugar control is such an important component to help balance your hormones. The solutions for my clients are simple and easy to implement.

“I aspire to be like Dr. Ritamarie and through the IRSPT program I am confident that I can help those that come to me with insulin sensitivity issues.”

Martha Saitta - Holistic Health PractitionerDr. Ritamarie does an amazing job of making the materials very accessible and applicable. She is an invaluable resource and takes the time to answer any and all questions on the topic at hand. She is clearly knowledgeable, genuine, and caring, and her enthusiasm for her work is catching.

Until I started my own business, I would tell everyone I know with any health concerns that they ought to get a consultation with her. I aspire to be like Dr. Ritamarie and through the IRSPT program I am confident that I can help those that come to me with insulin sensitivity issues.

“Dr. Ritamarie provides…real-life remedies that will fit into clients’ everyday lives.”

Robin Pruitt - Healthy Food Consultant squareI feel very prepared to coach people with the classic patterns of insulin resistance.

Dr. Ritamarie provides both in-depth information so that practitioners can truly understand their clients’ underlying conditions and practical, real-life remedies that will fit into clients’ everyday lives. This is a rare and valuable combination!

~ Robin Pruitt, Healthy Food Consultant

“I learned more useful strategies for my clients in the IRSPT course than I learned in 30 years of seminars and training in the fitness industry!”

Jan Chamberlain - Certified Personal Trainer and Sports NutritionistAs a certified Personal Trainer and Sports Nutritionist, I learned more useful strategies for my clients in the IRSPT course than I learned in 30 years of seminars and training in the fitness industry!

The techniques and skills I gained in the IRSPT course have led me to triple my client base. My clients are now getting faster results than ever before, and they are telling their friends about their amazing transformations.

Because of what I learned in the IRSPT program, my clients have become “walking advertisements” for me – many maintaining weight losses of up to 65 lbs. as a result of “tweaking” their programs with Dr. Ritamarie’s secrets.

Thank you, Dr. Ritamarie, for staying on the “cutting edge” of health and fitness breakthroughs, and for providing us with the tools to give our clients the top-notch service they deserve!

“…I have learned way more in this course than in the two years I have been studying.”

Lesley Robbins - IRSPT “I am finishing my course in nutrition and know I have learned a lot. However, the information I learned is compartmentalized whereas Dr. Ritamarie’s course showed how to put things together, break them down in bite-size action steps, and present it to my clients in an easy, simple, yet very complete format.

Also, I feel like I have learned way more in this course than in the two years I have been studying. My nutrition course was only theoretical. Dr. Ritamarie’s course was not only huge on content, but had a lot of practical content as well.”

~ Lesley Robin, Health Coach
[/content_box_yellow] [content_box_yellow width=”75%”]

“Dr. Ritamarie is the best healer and teacher I know.”

Judith Hasselblad - IRSPT“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.”

“It is so rewarding to have found a program that… can help spread the real truth when it comes to healthcare done the right way.”

Beverly o'Brien - Physician Assistant and Health CoachMy 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.

If You Keep Doing What You’re Doing,
You’ll Keep Getting What You’re Getting

You probably already know that making minor changes is not going to change your situation much.

  • Are you ready to serve your clients on a whole new level?
  • Are you ready to feel confident in your ability to get results with even the most challenging cases?

What you need to shortcut your path to success is the support and guidance of a mentor and a community to facilitate your growth and expansion.

You’ll actually CREATE and EXPERIENCE a huge shift in your perspective and way of serving your clients during this intensive 3-day workshop.



During this event, you’re going to learn essential strategies that will take your practice to a new and more rewarding level – deeply connected with your purpose for becoming a health practitioner in the first place.

These changes are very unlikely to just happen on their own, unless you spend a couple of decades like I did, putting it all together.

You need a catalyst; what I’ve created in this event just may be the shining spark you’ve been waiting for.

Let Me Shorten Your Journey to Success in Your Business.
