Dr. Frank Lipman on the Importance of Health Coaches [Video]

Why aren’t more doctors prescribing broccoli, gym memberships, and guided meditation? Preventable illnesses such as obesity, type 2 diabetes, and heart disease are reaching epidemic proportions, yet the current healthcare system depends on medications and surgery to manage symptoms rather than proactively prevent disease.

It’s partially because most physicians don’t have the time, resources, or training to help patients change their habits and lifestyle. Only 25% of medical schools require students to take a dedicated nutrition class, and doctors spend less than 3% of sick visits discussing nutrition.
