What Is A Health Coach?
If you had a tack in your foot, would you want the tack to be taken out or would you rather take a pain reliever to help with the pain? The obvious answer is to take the tack out. Unfortunately, most doctors prescribe medications to alleviate symptoms of illness rather than get to the root cause. This trend is starting to shift largely in part to the access we have to health coaches. Health coaches in Brookfield & East Troy work to get the tack out!
How Health Coaches Can Help You
Health coaches educate and support individuals on making lifestyle changes that will greatly reduce inflammation in the body, which is most time, the root cause of disease and illness. This process starts with a consultation that identifies the goals the client is looking to achieve. These goals can be driven from a diagnosis from a doctor or it can be no diagnosis. There are many people walking around that are sick and cannot figure out what is wrong.
Health coaches then create a plan of action on diet, exercise or functional movement; sleep strategies, stress management and supplementation. As changes are implemented, the health coach works with the client to make sure it is working because one plan doesn’t work for everyone. We are all different!
Health coaches also look at the whole person. The state of emotional and spiritual health is a piece of the optimal health puzzle!
