How can health coaching help me?
Health coaching interconnects the whole you - body, mind and soul
A health coach is a supportive mentor who helps you make healthy lifestyle choices. Whether the goal is to lose weight, increase energy, or sleep better at night, a health coach motivates you to make lasting changes and feel your best. Traditional doctors and physicians contribute to healthy living, but they don't necessarily have the time or the resources to help their clients build healthy habits and change their lifestyle on a day-to-day basis.
Every year there are over 30 million preventable deaths, and 1-5 Americans will die of obesity. These are staggering facts. Relationships, exercise, career and spirituality are just as important to your health as the food that you eat, and yet the current system fails to address them. Health coaches consider all these factors in addition to diet when addressing your health. We work in conjunction with physicians, nurses and dietitians to fill a void in our current health care system, serving as wellness mentors to help you with foods, relationships, and lifestyles changes to feel your best.
So bottom line, a health coach can help you see the the possibilities in your unique situation and help you make simpler and sustainable changes. I can help you by providing:

Being healthy doesn't have to be hard. My approach follows the principle of 'bio-individuality' meaning everyone is as individual as snowflakes and has unique body, food and lifestyle needs. To ensure success, a customized plan is developed rather than a one-size-fits-all option. We identify the root cause of symptoms, correct any imbalances, and create long-lasting support for the the whole self - body, mind, and spirit.
Relationships, exercise, career and spirituality are just as important to your health as the food you eat. The reason we experience “dis-ease” goes way beyond the physical body. I’m here to help you find it. To help you reach your wellness goals, we look at the "whole" self. In doing so, we get to the root cause of what has prevented you from attaining your goals and achieving vibrant health. We take a very close look at your body and MINIMIZE what is harmful to start the healing process, we add in what's needed to MAXIMIZE healing, and then PRIORITIZE the necessary ingredients for creating an environment for healing. You will receive ongoing support and guidance every step of the way!
Who needs a coach? "Everyone needs a coach," according to Bill Gates in his opening words of his TED Talk with impact. Whether you're a basketball, player, tennis player, gymnast or a bridge player we all need people to provide feedback, push us beyond our limits, and drive us to change. And with no feedback, no coaching, there's just no way to improve.
What is Primary Food
The philosophy of Integration Nutrition and food: everything that we consider is a source of nutrition is really just a secondary source of nourishment. Balancing diet and lifestyle.
The foods you eat are secondary to all the other things that feed you—your relationships, career, spirituality, and exercise routine. We call those things primary foods.
All we consider today as nutrition is really just a secondary source of energy.
Think back to a time when you were passionately in love. Everything was exciting. Colors were vibrant. Intimacy was magical. Your lover’s touch and feelings of exhilaration sustained you. You were floating on air, gazing into each other’s eyes. You forgot about food and were high on life.
As a child, remember when you were playing outside just having fun? Mom called you for dinner and you weren't hungry. The passion of play grabbed all your attention.
Sometimes the energy in our lives feeds us not food. These moments and feelings demonstrate that everything is food. We take in thousands of experiences in life that can fulfill us physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually. We hunger for play, touch, romance, intimacy, love, achievement, success, art, music, self-expression, leadership, excitement, adventure and spirituality. All of these elements are essential forms of nourishment. The extent to which we are able to incorporate them determines how enjoyable and worthwhile our lives feel. All that we consider today as nutrition is really just a secondary source of energy.
