You may have heard the term “health coach” popping up on Facebook or on TV. Health Coaches offer services and fill gaps that doctors, nutritionists don’t have the time or resources to fill. A health coach as “a wellness authority and supportive mentor who motivates individuals to cultivate positive health choices. Health coaches educate and support clients to achieve their health goals through lifestyle and behavior adjustments and most importantly meets the client where they are at and guides them to where they want to be.
To put it simply, health coaches like me are highly educated guides in the fields of health, nutrition, wellness, bio-individuality and mentoring.
Have you ever been given a list of “eat this, not that?” Have you found that making drastic changes at once are unsustainable and don’t work for you long-term. Or maybe you had a doctor tell you that you needed to lose weight by eating less and exercise more and you were already doing that? Or perhaps a friend of yours lost a a lot of weight on one fad diet, but when you tried it, the results were minimal at best? That’s where health coaches come in. We help you implement small changes, little by little, at a pace that’s comfortable for you so you can meet all your health goals. We work with you to help you discover your bio-individuality. There is something that will work for you – the trick is finding it. At Living Well Dallas, our health coaches also work hand-in-hand with our functional medicine doctors and nutritionists to help you implement the necessary changes to help you get and stay well.
Whether your goal is to increase energy, lose weight or just get health, health coaches take the time to listen to your concerns, help you discover where and why you are struggling, and help you navigate the world of contradictory nutritional advice to figure out exactly what works for your body.
Everyone is unique and different. That’s why no one diet works for everyone, or only works for a small amount of time. Health coaches don’t promote one specific type of diet, or one specific way of eating and they are trained in hundreds of different dietary theory – so there is not just the food pyramid to choose from and their is and understanding for cultural, ethical and spiritual dietary guidelines as well. They help you experiment with finding what will work for you specifically, and how to change up your diet and lifestyle as you continue to grow and make strides forward.
Health coaches don’t diagnose conditions, prescribe medications or recommend lower or higher doses of your current medications. Many health coaches are not personal trainers or a drill sergeant. We understand that life happens, and we work with you and support you in every way we can to achieve optimal wellness.
Health coaches are at the forefront of today’s health revolution. At a time when one in five people will die of lifestyle-related disease, as well as when diabetes and obesity are at an all-time high, health coaches provide the nutritional and lifestyle guidance society desperately needs to find its way back to health
Not one diet works for everyone. Our coaches will guide you to find the food and lifestyle choices that best support you. Our coaches will also help you to make gradual and lifelong changes. Call 972-930-0260 to schedule your 20-minute Strategy Session with me today!
