Chronic degenerative illnesses are on the rise. In contrast to infectious diseases, these are developed over time as a result of the progressive deterioration of the affected tissues or organs. Study-after-study confirms that our day-to-day nutrition, stress management skills and lifestyle choices are often at the root of these conditions. While the medical industry continues to focus mainly on surgical and drug-based strategies, the health coaching industry has developed state-of-the-art tools for addressing the underlying causes of your symptoms and/or pain. Health coaches comprehensively evaluate personal health influences and deliver practical solutions customized for each individual.
The personal health influences assessed generally include: currently diagnosed conditions, stress, sleep, dietary, fitness and other lifestyle habits. This information should be analyzed by an experienced health coach with a true understanding of alternative health care practices, nutrition and fitness and then a strategic health plan should be developed. With the support and expertise of a health coach, the individual is able to feel empowered in overcoming health issues and improving personal performance. The health coach bridges the gap between a physician and the patient, providing the motivation and facilitation of the lifestyle changes often recommended by physicians. The result is a highly efficient and cost-effective method of improving one’s health and therefore, the quality and length of their life.
