About Integrative Health & Wellness Coaching
Health is impacted by multiple interconnected dimensions. These dimensions include the choices one makes that affect their physical, mental, spiritual well-being and the medical care approaches utilized for their health. An Integrative Health Coach helps support their clients in discovering ways to successfully implement healthy lifestyle behaviors across these various dimensions into their unique lives. Integrative Health Coaching empowers clients to make lasting behavior changes that are the foundation for a lifetime of health and well-being. Studies show that many of the major chronic diseases such as diabetes, heart failure, cancer, and lung disease have a big lifestyle component (estimates range from 50 percent to 75 percent). Changes in behavior are essential to treating these illnesses as well as reducing the numbers who are diagnosed with these conditions. Businesses, the military, and health insurance companies are expanding their service offerings to include health coaching.
Health coaching practices are important because they help people make and maintain the healthy lifestyle choices that are key to the prevention and management of many chronic diseases. But health coaching is much more than that - your coach is your partner in the process of expanding awareness, personal development and real self-care that leads to vitality, and a lighter, more purposeful way of living.
