From the Desk of Dr. Ritamarie Loscalzo, MS, DC, CCN, DACBN
Dear Friend,
Does this sound like you?
  • You have chronic pain. Your stomach cramps can be tiresome, and your joints and muscles ache all the time.
  • You’re exhausted. You struggle to drag yourself out of bed each morning, and by the time 2 or 3 p.m. rolls around, you’re in desperate need of a pick-me-up.
  • You can’t think straight and feel like you’re in a fog! You find yourself forgetting appointments, errands, or items on your grocery list.
  • Your mood swings are exasperating, and you’re tired of snapping at your loved ones and co-workers.
  • You’re tired of needing larger pants at night, and you wish your belly could be flat and comfortable all day long.
  • You experience embarrassing symptoms, such as bloating, gas, and skin breakouts.
Bottom line: You don’t feel like yourself, or you don’t feel as good as you wish you did.
Perhaps you’ve spent tons of money to figure out what’s “wrong” with you and trying to “fix” it with herbs and medications, but to no avail. You can’t get a diagnosis, and you’re frustrated.

If you often feel exhausted after meals, even though you’re eating what’s considered a “healthy” diet, or you’re not sure why certain “healthy” foods don’t seem to agree with you, you are not alone.
Here’s the thing…
New research shows: your digestive health impacts
your energy and your whole body.
Even if you’re not experiencing obvious gut-related symptoms, imbalances in your gut can still result in poor physical and mental health.
“If Your Gut Isn’t Happy, You’re Not Healthy!”
About 90 to 95 percent of the fibers running between the brain and the gut are sending messages to the brain (not the other way around!), according to an article in The Telegraph. And a lot of the information the gut sends to the brain affects your well-being.

Also, 90 to 95 percent of your serotonin, a feel-good brain chemical, is actually found in your gut. Serotonin is the chemical involved with happiness, sex, sleeping, and eating (essentially, just about everything that makes life worthwhile).
So what if something in your gut is troubling you?
Well, first of all, understand that your gut is constantly sending messages to your consciousness.

Therefore, imbalances in your gut may make you depressed, forgetful, and unable to sleep well (yes, even if you don’t notice any gut-related symptoms).

Furthermore, the health of your gut and the efficiency of your digestion play huge roles in your overall health and in your natural immunity to diseases.

When the balance of microorganisms in your gut is out of whack and the “bad bacteria” proliferate, these bad bacteria produce toxins, which can weaken your immune response.
So, it’s possible to eat a nutrient-rich diet of real foods and still be nutrient deficient because of poor digestive health.
New research suggests that each person’s internal ecosystem of friendly bacteria is unique and can influence your neurology and mental states, including the development of your brain during infancy. Plus, the microflora in the gut cause changes in the expression of genes that control brain and neurological function.

Pre-clinical studies have shown that higher levels of beneficial bacteria in the gut can reduce anxiety, depression, neurotic behavior, and even combat the effects of stress!
What does all this mean for you?
It means, quite simply, that if you’re not feeling your best … and you’re not functioning at your best … these problems might be because of poor digestive health (even if you don’t realize it). 

So …
If you’re just plain too tired to have fun with your friends and family, even when you’re not irritable...

If you feel uncomfortable, whether it’s because of bloating and painful cramps in your abdomen or because your pants are too tight in the evenings...

If you’re less productive at work, and you’re not functioning at your best...

And if even though you think you’re eating a healthy diet, you’re often exhausted after meals...
…you are not alone!
A 2013 survey showed 74 percent of Americans are living with GI discomfort, and the American Nutrition Association states that more than 70 million people in the U.S. alone suffer from digestive issues every single day.
Now, for some good news: you have more control than you may realize.
The key to balancing your gut is eating the right foods
for your unique digestion.
I'm Dr. Ritamarie Loscalzo, founder of the Institute of Nutritional Endocrinology.
I'm fiercely committed to transforming our current, broken disease-care system into a true health care system, where ALL practitioners are skilled at finding the root cause of health challenges, so they can combine the latest scientific research with ancient, natural healing wisdom to restore balance and provide lasting solutions to people like you!

I specialize in using nature's wisdom to restore balance to hormones with a special emphasis on thyroid, adrenal and insulin imbalances, and I teach this to other health professionals.

My goal is to empower my clients—and you—to take charge of their health using diet, lifestyle, herbs and supplements.
My passion for health and healing began as a result of my own bout with illness.
I was the archetypal overachiever. I worked long hours in the get-it-done-yesterday world, meeting what seemed like impossible deadlines and tackling incredibly long to-do lists like nobody's business.

Then I got sick. I was overworked and exhausted, and all I could do was wonder how I'd gotten to that point.

After recovering my health by changing what I put in my mouth and how I lived my life, I began my formal training in nutrition
and natural medicine in 1985. I'm now a Doctor of Chiropractic, with certification in acupuncture, a diplomat of the
American Clinical Board of Nutrition and a certified HeartMath™ instructor.

It is my passion and my mission to help people just like you – and anyone for whom you care – 
to rediscover the vitality, energy, and excitement of great health!

I've heard from so many people who are concerned about their digestive system, and that’s exactly why I’ve created a step-by-step program to help you understand how your digestive system works, and what you can do to restore balance and regain your energy and health.
If you’re committed to finally getting to the root cause of digestive difficulty, rather than just simply applying a band-aid solution, then allow me to guide you through my Happy Belly System.
Join me for my Gut Repair and Alkalizing Nutrition for Digestion (GRAND) Program and transform your digestive health for more energy, clarity, and a flat, comfortable belly.

“Pollution in our world and toxins in our food supply are wreaking havoc on our guts. In fact, most of us are walking around with seriously compromised digestive tracts. Dr. Ritamarie’s work can change all that. She’ll hold your hand, walk you through the steps you can take to heal your gut, and help you to heal your life.
Here's just a taste of what you will learn:
Part 1: Discover the Healing Power of Your Second Brain
This is a broad overview of how your digestive system – also known as “the second brain” – works. Once you gain an understanding of how everything fits together, you can begin to put a healing regimen in place.
You'll learn:
  • How to assess the function of your digestive tract, and why it’s critical to do so even if you don’t think you’re experiencing any digestive issues.
  • The 4R process for healing your digestion: what it is and how to use it.
  • The simple, at-home method to measure how effective your digestive system is… without drawing blood, enduring a colonoscopy, or a sending in a poop sample!
  • And more…
Part 2: Optimize Your Fuel Generator for Maximum Energy
The upper part of your digestive track breaks down your food into usable nutrients that supply fuel to your cells. We’re taking a tour of your digestion from top to bottom! We begin with your mind and then move onto the health of your mouth and stomach.

You'll learn:
  • The intimate dance between your gut and your brain, and what you can do to maintain a healthy balance between the two.
  • A simple trick for making sure the important beginnings of digestion that occur in your stomach and duodenum start out smoothly.
  • The #1 secret for optimizing your nutrition naturally, so you don’t need to take a whole bunch of supplements to provide your cells with fuel.
  • How to heal your stomach so you optimize the breakdown of foods into nutrients to fuel your cells and maximize your energy (remember, you can eat all the healthy food you want and still lack nutrition, if your body isn’t digesting the nutrients properly).
  • And more…
Part 3: Boost Your Nutrient Absorption to Feel Amazing
Here you’ll discover whether you may have leaky gut syndrome (in technical terms, increased “intestinal permeability”), where the mucosal barrier in your intestine breaks down and can allow food particles and germs to pass into your blood.

Leaky gut syndrome can cause bloating, gas, abdominal pain, vaginal infections, food allergies, asthma, and mood swings. Leaky gut can put you at risk for serious conditions, such as migraines, rheumatoid arthritis, and autoimmune diseases like Lupus, Crohn’s, and Hashimoto’s.
You'll learn:
  • How to determine whether or not your gut is “leaky” and exactly what that means to you.
  • How to soothe and heal your digestive tract lining and boost your absorption of the key nutrients needed for optimal energy and mental clarity.
  • Which common, everyday foods may be toxic to your digestive system, and what to eat instead to optimize healing and nutrient absorption.
  • And more…

Executive Chef, 
Health Coach
“I have been trying to work on my leaky gut for over a year and could never seem to get myself organized enough to do the work. When I started this program with Dr. Ritamarie, everything clicked. I found the program very informative and laid out in a format that made the recommendations very easy to follow. I finally was able to heal my digestion and get rid of my bloating, stomach pains, and digestive upset. I have also lost 10 pounds. Very excited.”
Part 4: Break Free of Your Gut Bugs
This is where the action happens! It’s time to take everything you’ve learned to the next level and put it into practice so you can stop the war in your gut and feel good again.
You'll learn:
  • How to identify the villains that are poking holes in your gut lining and keeping you feeling bloated, tired, and moody.
  • Advanced implementation strategies for a 30-day intestinal repair protocol to kick-start your digestive tract into balance.
  • How to personalize your program if the general gut-healing protocols are not working as well as expected, including a plant-based adaptation of the popular Specific Carbohydrate and FODMAPS food plans.
  • How to annihilate YOUR specific villains, if you determine you have SIBO (Small Intestinal Bacterial Overgrowth), candidiasis, or parasites.
  • And more…
Part 5: Boost Elimination and 
Get Rid of Toxins
Elimination is absolutely critical in a healthy digestive system. If you don’t eliminate waste on a regular basis, your body may reabsorb the toxins it’s trying to get rid of and hold on to extra fat to buffer your vital organs from damage. Therefore, it’s essential that you give your body everything it needs to eliminate these toxins properly.
You'll learn:
  • The real reason your elimination gets sluggish and what to do to ensure it’s working smoothly, so you feel lighter, stronger, and have more time and energy for the fun things in life.
  • Cutting-edge strategies for effectively removing toxins, so your gut can heal and your energy can soar.
  • How to optimize liver detoxification pathways, so you can shed unwanted fat and maximize your brainpower.
  • And more…
In short…you’ll learn exactly how to get to the root cause of your health challenges and live the life you crave!
Finally, you can have more energy, clarity, and happiness!
It’s a lot to cover, I know. And that’s why you can rest assured that I’ll be your partner on this journey, every step of the way.

So here’s how we’re going to do this… together!

“I started noticing my digestive issues in my mid 20’s. The doctors never figured out what was wrong. I’ve had ultrasounds, CT scans, etc., and the results of these tests never indicated any visible problem. I continued most of my adult life with bloating, feeling so full after several bites of food, diarrhea, constipation, and gas. Until I learned of Dr. Ritamarie’s program, I believed there were answers to my digestive problems, but just hadn’t uncovered the information. Upon reading about this program, I knew instantly the answers had just been revealed. I signed up for the GRAND program to hopefully help myself and clients.

Upon taking the digestive assessment, I realized there were many areas within my digestive system that appeared to be “broken”. Once I began following the protocols, the bloating and diarrhea went away. I started experiencing 2 – 3 bowel movements per day. Gas disappeared. Unfortunately I still fall prey to cravings, which means I do experience some or all of these symptoms when I am eating something I shouldn’t. Just like Dr. Ritamarie has suggested, you have to start all over in many cases if one returns to some or all of those bad habits, she was absolutely correct

I have so much knowledge thanks to Dr. Ritamarie. I am currently working harder today to sustain the protocols that keep the digestive symptoms at bay. I have also begun to share this information with clients, favorite part!! Thank you for all that you do, my life is definitely so much richer and healthier.”

“I have always known way more about my body and its health requirements than any doctor or any of my peers. And it is because of that, that I am so impressed by Dr. Ritamarie! She has taught me way more than I ever knew and she made it so easy to understand. I am finally seeing improvements which have eluded me for decades. My only regret is that I didn’t discover her programs sooner. I will forever be grateful for the huge health gains I am experiencing in my digestion and food allergies. Thank you Dr. Ritamarie!
Do you have questions?
Below, I’ve included some of the questions I hear most frequently, and their answers, to help you decide whether GRAND is a good match for you.
Q: How can I justify the expense?
A: You are worth it!  You deserve to feel good ALL the time.  Have you ever calculated the cost of your health challenges and digestive woes, in terms of lost time from work, expensive supplements and medications, doctor's visits and relationship struggles?  

You’ve probably heard the old saying about the importance of teaching someone how to fish (or grow carrots) rather than just giving him the actual fish (or carrots). During this fully guided program, you get the tools and support you need to restore balance to your gut and the other aspects of your health, and to maintain that balance. This isn’t a Band-Aid; it’s a long-term, root cause solution. I'm confident that you’ll experience the value of this program many times over while you’re enjoying new levels of energy and vitality!

How much more will you spend on doctors who treat the symptom but never quite get to the cause?

How much more will you spend on the latest supplements and miracle foods, only to find that they don’t work for you? How much is improving your relationships and having more fun worth to you?

The investment is small compared to the thousands of dollars and hundreds of hours you’re likely to have spent, or will continue to spend, if you don’t address this issue NOW.
Q: What if I’m too busy?
A: Once you learn and implement what I share in GRAND, I have a feeling you’re going to be so much more efficient. You’ll save tons of time on trying to figure out why you don’t feel well, and you’ll perform your daily activities with renewed energy and efficiency.
Q: How will this affect my diet and family?
A: Great question. The good news is that once you know which foods are helpful (and which are harmful), you can make your choices around them. Most restaurants offer suitable choices. Remember, I’m giving you more than 100 recipes, and I believe they’re all as delicious as they are healthy. I have a feeling you’re going to be hearing requests for your family’s favorite dishes!
Q: Can I really do this?
A: The gut is very complicated … but I’ve been teaching people how to restore their health for over 25 years. I've distilled the teachings down into bite-sized pieces that are easy to understand and implement. You’ll have plenty of opportunity to ask questions and get answers on our coaching calls, on our VITAL Community calls, through coach monitored journals, and in the Facebook group, as well. 
Q: Will this work for me?
A: Right now, all this new information may seem complicated. But a growing body of scientific research is showing that the gut plays a huge part in our mental and physical health … so you may be surprised at how well it works for you because you’ll know how to discover the root cause of your symptoms and begin restoring that delicate balance that leads to better health. You will be guided to personalize the program to your unique needs and we’ll be there to guide you every step of the way.
So now are you ready?

Yes, Dr. Ritamarie! 
I'm ready for GRAND!

I understand that for my one-time investment of $697, I receive:
