HOW CAN WE HELP?
So you may be asking yourself, “What does a Health or Wellness Coach actually do?
A health coach is a supportive mentor and wellness authority who helps others feel their best through individualized food and lifestyle changes that meet their unique needs and health goals.
Health coaching isn’t about one diet or one way of living. Instead, we focus on bio-individuality – the idea that we’re all different and have unique dietary, lifestyle, emotional, and physical needs. This means that we don’t believe in a one-size fits-all approach to health and wellness. Instead, we work with clients to help them discover how to fuel their bodies and become the healthiest, happiest version of themselves through a holistic approach.
We emphasize holistic health beyond the plate as we approach wellness through primary food. The idea that there are areas of your life that impact your long-term health just as much as the food you eat – your relationships, career, spirituality, and physical activity.
Making healthy lifestyle changes requires support and cannot be accomplished in a 15-minute doctor visit, so we work in conjunction with your own medical practitioner to fill a gap to guide and support your personal wellness plan by making recommendations and provide additional resources that support and compliment your goals to ensure that you stay on track.
So my first step as your Coach would be to get a health history from you, but also to Explore Your Intensions and by that, I mean you need to ask yourself what it is that you are trying to accomplish. Are you trying to lose weight, are you unhappy in your job or your relationship? Sometimes the answer is as simple as yes, I just want to lose those 10 stubborn pounds but sometimes it’s about not being able to get enough sleep or always feeling run down or unenergized throughout the day and those areas are a bit more complicated to get to the root of the cause and will take some time to determine exactly what is going on.
The goal is to help restore balance to your body and allowing natural healing. I am a firm believer “THAT THE POWER FOR YOUR OWN HEALTH AND HAPPINESS COMES FROM WITHIN” and that in making simple lifestyle & dietary changes you have a lot more control over your health than you think.
Being healthy gives you a better outlook on life, so you're more prepared to tackle your tasks. Stress, on the other hand, can keep you from enjoying life and can have a negative impact on your health.
