As I am sure you are well aware, our Health Care system is a mess! It really should be called “Disease Care.” Our Health Care system is really good at managing our diseases, yet unfortunately not caring for our health. Most of our visits to the Doctors either involve scheduling surgery, prescribing medications, or telling us “to deal with it.” No “healing” or preventative care seems to be involved! “Health” is not really addressed.
Health Coaches don’t diagnose or treat. However, do we really want them too? Not really. I don’t need more prescriptions with more side effects.
We all would be be better off if we had someone to walk us through the necessary lifestyle and dietary changes that need to take place, for our health to improve. Health Coaches are great at this!
Let's get real...we don’t really have a “Lipitor” deficiency, folks!
We don’t have a “Claritin” deficiency, or a “Celebrex” deficiency either!
Believe it or not, there is a way to prevent and reverse common problems such as high cholesterol, diabetes, obesity, chronic inflammation, stress, depression, and cancer. Yes, even cancer!!
There is no magic wand in the hand of a Health Coach, however, with most Health Coaches there is, a caring heart, a listening ear, and an insightful ability to support and guide one toward healthier changes.
Health Coaches care for you, your health and the future of your health!
Through their expertise of the holistic parameters to wellness, they help you co-create a plan to gradually integrate health and well-being into your everyday life, and they help keep you accountable so results happen!
We all know most of the benefits of eating well, being less stressed and exercising. These things seem to be at the tip of the iceberg and are obvious to most. Yet the cultural, psychological, and motivational levels run much deeper below the waters.
Guidance with what we eat on a daily basis, how we use and exercise our bodies, and how we relax and let go of stress should never be over-rated. These things are often needed, and going at it alone can seem overwhelming. However, exploring the “why” behind our choices, and how we can implement changes for improved health can be the extra bonus that a Health Coach can provide.
Health Coaches can provide awareness, education and support. Awareness of what is working and what is not working in your life right now. Wellness education from an understanding perspective of what you are going through and what your have been through, and support through out the co-creation process.
Allowing yourself to move toward a happier life and positive health is the first step you'll come to. The Health Coach is there to help you get over that first step and the many steps to follow.
To your Health and Well-being!

I am a fanatic when it comes to uncovering the truths and the falsities to sound nutrition and good health. When we use a little common sense we can back up anything, yet there is always room for debate.
