Real Health Care Reform

The House of Representatives passed a landmark health care reform that has been the biggest debate of 2009. Now it’s up to the Senate. The debate will, no doubt go back and forth, and remain the hottest topic of the year, but there’s one thing that we can all agree on, our health and the health of our family is the most important thing in our lives. 

With the health of the nation on center stage, preventative care needs to come to the forefront. Chronic health issues like diabetes, obesity, and heart disease, are the biggest killers in our country, and can be prevented, through dietary and lifestyle changes. 

An article on CBSNews.com states: "Preventive medicine must become an integral part of health care reform. Counseling and other lifestyle interventions are effective in the treatment of diabetes, hypertension, and smoking. And in recent years; a new and intriguing concept has emerged in the prevention and treatment of chronic illness: the health coach."

Health Coaches or Counselors can help people clarify their personal health goals and make lifestyle changes, so that health care is about wellness not illness.
