We all know the basics of what to eat; so why don’t we all fill our plates with vegetables, avoid the soda, and exercise everyday? That’s where a wellness coach comes in!
What is Wellness Coaching?
Integrative Wellness Coaching is an approach to patient care that combines nutrition and lifestyle to incorporate wellness into everyday life. True wellness goes beyond just what you consume. Your career, relationships, creativity, finances, social life, and home environment all play a role in health. Just as you can have vitamin or mineral deficiencies, so too, can you have deficiencies in your routine and life that contribute to illness and dis-ease. By looking at the whole picture, we are able to explore how what you consume and what consumes your time either nourish or deplete you.
What does a Wellness Coach do?
A Wellness Coach is your personal advocate and health partner, inspiring you to live an energized and passionate life so you can live better, longer. The goal is to empower patients to create happy, healthy lives in a way that is flexible, fun, and that frees them from fad diets, self-sabotaging stories, and the endless cycle of stress. By working together, we can discover the tools and lifestyle choices that best support you. Making gradual, bio-individualized changes enables you to reach your goals and make health a sustainable, lasting part of your life.
In today’s world, health is more crucial than ever. Too often, we treat patients at Gateway Natural Medicine who have been given a whole lifetime of poor nutrition and health advice. Instead of encouraging people to listen to what their body is trying to tell them, our medical system teaches us to medicate the pain away and suppress anything that inconveniences our busy lives. Given half a chance, the body will heal itself. We just have to set it up for success and get comfortable with a little discomfort, in order to achieve health that relies on nourishment, not pharmaceuticals.
Benefits of coaching:
- Set and accomplish goals
- Explore new foods
- Understand and reduce cravings
- Increase energy
- Feel better in your body
- Improve personal relationships
