According to Duke University’s Integrative Medicine department, “Integrative Health Coaching empowers clients to make lasting health behavior changes that are the cornerstones of lifelong well-being. It bridges the gap between medical recommendations and patients’ abilities to successfully implement those recommendations into their complex lives.”
As a nutritional health coach, my goal is to help you achieve balance and well being by aligning the various influences in your life that affect your personal health. A holistic coaching approach will take into account your unique physical, emotional, mental, social, spiritual, and environmental influences, with an emphasis on integrating healthy nutrition, fitness, and lifestyle habits.
It takes consistent coaching to change health, habits, and lifestyles.
That's why at Health Talk, I use several platforms to help you achieve your self-defined wellness goals. These include defining your Health Talk Vision, setting SMART goals, identifying deleterious behavior and dietary patterns, discovering strengths, exercising personal responsibility, and integrating a Balanced Lifestyle.
