You may have heard of the term Health Coach in recent years. However, I often find when I tell someone that I’m a health coach, they have absolutely no idea what I’m talking about. The concept of a health coach is fairly new to the health care landscape. Health coaches are popping up in doctor’s offices, spas, gyms and private practices all over the country. They often offer services and fill gaps that doctors, and dietitians don’t have the time or resources to fill.

Think of a health coach as someone who has your back. Health coaches educate and support clients to achieve their health goals through lifestyle and behavior adjustments. To put it simply, health coaches like me are highly educated guides in the fields of 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? Perhaps a friend of yours lost a bunch of weight on one particular diet, but when you tried it, the results were minimal at best? That’s where health coaches come in. We work with you, where you are at. This is where my background as a trained clinical psychotherapist comes in to play. 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.

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. 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.

Not all Health Coaches are the same. Like most professions, health coaches can have their niche or speciality that they focus on. One of our focuses at Nourish Functional Health is diving deep into root imbalances and looking for the roadblocks that keep you from reaching your health goals. We utilize functional testing to help tease out where those imbalances are and are able to create a more precise goal-oriented approach to your overall well-being. We have found through the utilization of functional testing that your chances of meeting your heath goals can often speed up the time it takes to reach your goals.

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.
