How Health Coaches Can Partner with Doctors
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.
Health Coaches provide the guidance, accountability, and support for people who want to improve their health and happiness. And they have the knowledge to help you figure out which foods will work for your unique body, lifestyle, and habits.
Want to healthfully satisfy a sweet tooth? Not sure if the healthy versions of fast food are really healthy? Wondering what the best diet is for healthy eating? A Health Coach can steer you in the right direction.
Even if you don’t have serious health issues, Health Coaches can offer guidance that help you uncover the cause of mild, nagging conditions that affect your quality of life. Before you know it, you’ll feel better than you ever thought possible.
