What is Functional Medicine Health Coaching
Functional Medicine Health Coaching interconnects the whole you - mind, body, spirit
I help you take wellness into your own hands. I believe that many modern disease diagnoses are labels for a ‘dis-ease’ in a unique body - something that went out of balance and that could be 'eased' back in. That’s why I am here – to help you understand what is going on in your body by looking at all of symptoms and imbalances and determine the best way to 'ease' your way back to feeling good again.
Functional Medicine views our body as a whole, integrated system, looking at the way all the systems in the body work together rather than isolating single organs and dividing them up into medical specialties.
Functional Medicine seeks to identify the root cause of symptoms to correct imbalances and find long-lasting healing that supports the body, mind, and spirit as a whole. It is completely personalized.
FM Health Coaches free the physician to focus on analysis and diagnosis; they coach and provide detailed patient education, explaining what interconnected dynamics are happening in your unique body and teach you how to achieve wellness. Coaching is a powerful (and necessary) bridge between good medicine and the true healing people seek. When the wisdom of Functional Medicine is actually implemented your life can be powerfully transformed.
Bottom line? My goal is to help you and your families take control of your health, heal and live vibrant lives through all modalities of my practice: integrative nutrition, life, career, relationship and soul coaching, I integrate the essentials for optimal health into my approach to healing: eating whole foods, reducing stress, optimizing sleep, learning to love self unconditionally, addressing and releasing traumas, cultivating spirituality, and much more.
You will gain information, tools and resources to make positive lifestyle choices so that you can attain and achieve sustainable wellness. We are all bio-individual with completely different chemical and bio-physical needs. Therefore you receive an individual plan based on your unique issues, needs, situation, not a one size fits all diet or wellness program.
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 to help you achieve vibrant health. We take a very close look at your body and MINIMIZE what is harmful in order to start healing; we add in what's needed to MAXIMIZE healing; and then PRIORITIZE the necessary ingredients for creating an environment for healing, supporting and guiding you 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. Without a coach, without getting the tools for improvement, how do you know if you are improving?
It’s rare these days for anyone to get an opportunity to explore their wellness goals with a trained professional. As your coach, I put the power of health back in YOUR hands. Working together, you will discover that the food on your plate is secondary to healthy relationships, regular physical activity, a fulfilling career, and spiritual fulfillment. You will also discover, that....
Being healthy doesn't have to be hard! We will look at all areas of your life and weave everything inter-connectedly. My approach follows the principle of 'bio-individuality' which simply means that each of us has unique body, food and lifestyle needs. It is important we determine yours to ensure success in identifying a customized plan based on your specific needs. We will adjust and overcome barriers as needed and create lasting lifestyle change.
