Change is difficult! A health coach engages patients and clients in a collaborative manner proven highly successful in empowering the patient to actualize prescribed changes. Healthy habits like exercise, a well-balanced diet, sleep, hygiene, self care and effective time management take time and discipline to form—health coaches encourage these habits throughout the treatment process.
A Functional Medicine Certified Health Coach combines the "coach approach" with science based evidence in a patient centered, individualized manner to effect positive change. Health coaches support medical practitioners in a non-prescriptive role by addressing underlying causes of chronic issues such as weight gain, hypertension, diabetes, insomnia, fatigue and anxiety to effect optimal patient wellness.
