health coaching is changing the landscape of medicine

When people are looking to make a major health change, whether trying to lose weight, increase energy, reduce stress, or address chronic conditions, it is easy to become overwhelmed and feel LOST.  Behavior change resembles a long and winding path between peaks and valleys, and for many, it can feel as if they’ve been left without a road map to truly get better.  The problem is not a lack of knowledge or availability of information, but rather the lack of support and guidance through the transformation process that leads to long-lasting, sustainable health change.

The Power of Health Coaching

A recent study found that 85% of chronic disease is due to environmental factors; fewer than 5% of adults engage in the top health behaviors, and only 20% of adults are thriving.  The grim reality is that 1 in 2 Americans has a chronic disease and 1 in 3 are considered overweight or obese.  And yet, most people if asked, would say they want to be healthier.  Within the gap between intention and action lies the power of health coaching!

If being healthy, fit, and happy were just about knowing what to do, everyone would be thriving!  The truth is, for so many people, being healthy is HARD.  We are bombarded by choices, and overloaded and confused by information.  And life is busier and more stressful than ever before.  We hear “eat clean, exercise more, get enough sleep,” but we struggle to make lasting changes.

Ask yourself:

  • If I could learn anything about living healthier, what would it be?
  • If I could change one behavior to make life better, what would I change?
  • If I could increase my zest for life, where would I start?

Being healthy doesn’t HAVE to be hard when you have the personal support and guidance of someone who is trained to help you discover your path to change!

Health coaches meet you wherever you are on your health journey, and help you get to where YOU want to be.  More than a healthcare system, people need a self-care system and a trained professional who can listen to them.

Health coaching offers more than a resource; it offers a relationship that is designed to help you THRIVE!

What is Functional Medicine?

Functional Medicine is fundamentally about identifying the root cause of disease by taking a whole person systems-oriented approach, and creating healthy lifestyle changes through value-based care.   Compared to conventional medicine, which describes disease by symptoms and not causes, Functional Medicine examines the interactions among genetic, environmental, and lifestyle factors such as nutrition, exercise, stress, sleep, and relationships, that can influence long-term health and complex, chronic disease.

“It is more important to understand the imbalances in your body’s basic systems and restore balance, rather than name the disease and match the pill to the ill.”

– Dr. Mark Hyman, Chairman for the Institute of Functional Medicine
