Adrenal Fatigue and the 7 Pillars of Vibrant Health – FAM #46

Welcome!  My guest today is Dr. Ritamarie, who is a specialist in endocrine imbalances.  She focuses on thyroid, adrenal, and insulin issues, and is here to discuss adrenal fatigue.  She has a long and rich history of working with patients in the area of nutritional endocrinology.

As a young person, Dr. Ritamarie suffered from adrenal fatigue and leaky gut issues but she never connected the symptoms with her unhealthy lifestyle.  She suspected the connection and did research on her own, then started cleansing and rebuilding her system on her own.  She has had NO sugar or caffeine for 30 years!  Her passion became teaching others what she had learned about health and nutrition.

Dr. Ritamarie discusses the following topics:

  • There is a connection to adrenal imbalance, thyroid issues, blood sugar imbalance, and digestion.
  • She founded the Institute of Nutritional Endocrinology to train health practitioners.
  • There are some common patterns, but also some unique differences in the symptoms of adrenal imbalance.  She shares six specific symptoms that you may be experiencing!
  • Dr. Ritamarie shares the Seven Pillars of Vibrant Health that must be in balance.  It’s NOT ONLY nutrition that matters!
  • Stress, sleep, and mindset are probably the main areas in which most people need to change habits for positive health.
  • There are Three Pillars of Care for Successful Practitioners.  You have to be a good example to help others change for the better!
  • There is a correlation between sleep deprivation and insulin resistance.  Most people need 7-9 hours nightly for optimum overall health.
  • Dr. Ritamarie has some specific Do’s and Don’t’s regarding nutritional changes to heal adrenal function.  Listen and learn!
  • She has some exercises to help people learn to let go of limiting beliefs.  What is it that is holding you back?
  • She briefly describes “transforming stress,” which takes negative stressors and reframes them in a positive way.
  • To begin to change, focus on breathing, appreciation, and eating REAL food!
  • If you’re suffering from adrenal imbalance, you can expect a profound change in 3-6 months of commitment to her program.

Dr. Ritamarie has many years’ experience in functional medicine with an emphasis on adrenal imbalance.  Her tips can help anyone who suffers from the common symptoms.  Join me to learn more, and check out the resources below!
