Many health issues can be controlled – and even eliminated – through changes in diet and lifestyle. Yet most people rely on over-the-counter medications or prescriptions doled out by busy, overworked doctors.
Why is this? Doctors don’t have time to explain how to make diet and lifestyle changes. And most people don’t realize how much control they can have over their own health by using simple preventative measures – as easy as drinking more water, sleeping well, or evaluating their caffeine intake.
Health Coaches can help. A recent article on Care2 points out that Health Coaches can be excellent partners to health care professionals who don’t have the time to spend with their patients.
