You try to eat right, get plenty of sleep and take your prescriptions diligently – so why aren’t you feeling better? A health coach might be able to help you find what you’re missing and learn how to feel your best. Health coaches are knowledgeable about both pharmacology and nutrition, a mix of backgrounds that allows them to deeply understand each patient’s health needs and develop expert advice on diet, exercise, lifestyle choices, vitamins and supplements and prescriptions.
It’s not easy learning exactly how to best take care of yourself; what worked when you were younger might not work anymore, and there’s new research published nearly every day claiming to turn traditional health wisdom on its head. Many people find themselves struggling to understand why they lack energy, despite their best efforts to eat well, sleep enough, and exercise regularly. Meeting with a health coach can help you learn about what’s best for your body, whatever age you are or shape you’re in, and then determine step-by-step how to move forward and feel as healthy as possible.
One of health coaches’ most valuable skills is identifying patients’ vitamin deficiencies or excesses. Few individuals can accurately determine which vitamins they need more or less of on their own – most need the help of an experienced professional who can audit their diet and explain their metabolism. Vitamin supplements have transformed countless lives, yet most doctors and pharmacists neglect to discuss them with their patients. Health coaches offer a well-rounded and interdisciplinary approach to health care, with backgrounds in both medicine and nutrition, and they’re passionate about the power of vitamins to improve quality of life.
