“Natural forces within us are the true healers of disease.”
Hippocrates 4th Century B.C.
When our health is out of balance, we can feel the effects. Symptoms such as fatigue, indigestion, constipation, difficulty losing weight, and recurring infections are our body’s way of sending us messages.
Chronic illness is rampant in our society yet modern science seems ill-prepared to address it. A prescription drug or over-the-counter medication used to control symptoms may do nothing to address the underlying problem and can often do more harm than good.
All too often, people have come to expect that living with discomfort and a steady deterioration of their health is normal. But much of the ill-health we experience is a result of lifestyle choices that can be changed. Understanding that you have options is the first step to overall wellness.
If you’ve tried everything your doctor has recommended and you’re still not feeling the results you desire, it may be time to broaden your approach.
The foundation of wellness is a healthy, holistic lifestyle: eating life-giving food, getting your body moving, dealing with stress appropriately, and avoiding toxic exposures and toxic thoughts. Every aspect of your life affects your health. The goal is to reach a natural balance by supporting and sustaining your body’s innate healing abilities.
A health “coach” becomes your partner in the healing process. Individualized counseling and support teaches you how to enhance your overall well-being. You receive valuable information about nutrition, exercise, stress reduction, and gain the tools needed to live a lifestyle that supports your health.
The good news is that you may be able to heal yourself, but it takes commitment and hard work. There are no magic bullets or quick fixes when it comes to your health. Having a health coach as your guide provides you with the support needed to make changes that will last a lifetime.
Our program starts with a 90-minute initial consultation that includes an extensive health history review. You will receive overall impressions from the coach and discuss what specific approaches might be considered.
After this initial consultation, you may decide to go forward with our 6-month health coaching program.
