What is Health Coaching?
Health coaching is a unique, exciting innovation in health and nutrition. Through health coaching, you will learn what approach works best for you at this point in your life as well as tools to do this on your own as you move into later stages of your life. This is done through a holistic nutrition approach, which is the concept that there are two nourishment groups: Secondary Nourishment, which is the actual food that you eat such as fruits, vegetables, meat, etc., and the Primary Nourishment, which are the other things in your life that nourish you, such as relationships, career, exercise, etc. If one of these groups is imbalanced, the other generally is imbalanced as well.
Health coaching looks at how all areas of your life are connected. Does stress at your job or in your relationship cause you to overeat? Does lack of sleep or low energy prevent you from exercising? As we work together, we look at how all parts of your life affect your health as a whole. Through this process you will find what we all continuously seek: a healthy balance!
A health coach is a wellness guide and supportive mentor. While most dietitians dwell on calories, carbs, fats, proteins, restrictions, and lists of good and bad foods, we work with clients to create a happy, healthy lifestyle in a way that is flexible, fun, and free of denial and discipline.
Food has a huge impact on your overall well being. As your daily diet changes, your body changes and your happiness improves. No one diet works for everyone, nor does it work for their entire life. We will guide you to find the food and lifestyle choices that best support you. We will also help you to make gradual, lifelong changes that enable you to reach your current and future health goals. We guide clients to find the food and lifestyle choices that best support each individual. We have clients who have come into their consultation in need of the development of better eating habits. Other clients have healthy eating habits, but want to live a more balanced lifestyle. We have had some clients looking to lose weight and some looking to stop binge eating. We have helped clients who have been feeling sick every day for reasons no one has been able to explain and simply want to feel better by helping them figure out where the problem exists and making a plan to combat the issue. We also address specific medical concerns such as diabetes, high cholesterol, or hypo-glycemia. We help clients make gradual, durable, and lifelong changes that enable them to reach their current and future health goals.
When was the last time you talked with someone about your health and received the personal attention you deserve? During our initial consultation, we will discuss your unique situation in depth and determine how to develop a personalized program to radically improve your health and happiness in an effort to help you reach your personal goals. Together we will explore concerns specific to you, your body, and your lifestyle in order to discover the tools you need for a lifetime of balance.
