WHAT IS HEALTH COACHING? HOW DO WE HELP?
Integrative Health Coaching Principles (with Primal Adaptations)
A Primal Health Coach’s mission, my mission, is to help you reach your health, wellness, and fitness goals. From nutrition guidance to customized programs and stress reduction techniques, I am a wellness expert that works with you to create an individualized, adaptable, holistic mind-body health plan.
The Primal Health Coaching system is based on Integrative Health Coaching (IHC), one of the most well-studied, scientifically validated methods of health coaching. According to Duke University’s Integrative Medicine department, “Integrative Health Coaching empowers clients to make lasting health behavior changes that are the cornerstones of lifelong well-being. It bridges the gap between medical recommendations and patients’ abilities to successfully implement those recommendations into their complex lives.”
As a Primal Health Coach, I will help you realign the logistics of your life in favor of vitality. I will guide you towards choices (both major and minor) that feed your vitality. I will help you become open to new solutions and approaches to facets of everyday living. I help you recognize that many things—even “big” things in life—are worth sacrificing before our health. Ultimately, I help you learn to make decisions based on that fundamental value.
I understand that there is no “one-size-fits-all” approach that will work for everyone when it comes to health and wellness. I understand that finding a wellness and lifestyle program for YOU isn’t easy. I use a variety of tools, techniques, and resources to help you activate your vision of vitality and wellness so that it is tailored to meet your specific needs. My approach is to help you reframe and change behaviors to create a mindset that will help guide you to a your place of vital wellness.
WHAT HEALTH COACHES DON'T DO
As a Primal Health Coach, I am not a substitute for a doctor or medical professional. As your coach I do not replace your need for a primary care doctor or specialist, nutritionist or your therapist, however, I will partner with all professionals necessary to guide you towards optimal vitality. As a health coach I can offer additional insights and techniques as well as provide a new and alternative perspective to your health and wellness vision.
HOW CAN YOU BENEFIT FROM
WORKING WITH A HEALTH COACH
For the most part everyone knows that we should be taking mindful action to live more optimally and to improve our overall health and wellness so that we can prevent chronic disease. The internet is full of information but reading all this information and trying to discern and take on these changes alone can be hard. The overwhelming information can often result in another frustrating outcome. Not everyone needs the same program or lifestyle changes, nor do we have the same internal and external barriers. Too many choices or lack of information can create doubt and fear of how we are to move forward and often leaves us paralyzed to not make any changes at all. As a health coach I can support and guide you by providing the learning tools and health resources that are relevant and scientifically validated. But most of all, I can provide the support and the time you need so that you can create an action plan and vital wellness vision. I have the training and techniques to address your vitality vision from a whole person perspective. I can help you with guidance and support and I can be an accountability partner as well a catalyst for change in your life.
A WHOLE WELLNESS PROGRAM WITHOUT STRUGGLE AND SACRIFICE?
So many nutrition programs involve struggle and sacrifice…dieting and relentless exercise that make clients miserable and don’t achieve lasting success. The Primal Health Coach approach is entirely different. Based on always up-to-date scientific findings, the Primal Blueprint emphasizes tasty food, occasional indulgences, moderate and accessible physical activity, and above all else…FUN. So that you can enjoy getting your health back on track!
