There are so many reasons to begin health coaching, it is difficult to decide where to start. According to cdc.gov, national healthcare cost $3.2 trillion in the U.S. alone in 2015. When I first read this statistic I was completely floored. We as Americans are spending 17.8% of our GDP on healthcare alone. This breaks my heart a bit because even though we are spending such an outrageous amount every year on health, we are still as a country overwhelmingly sick, tired and fat.
So why isn’t our current healthcare system working? In my honest opinion it is that it thrives on Americans being sick. When going into the doctor for issues such as high-blood pressure, heart disease, chronic fatigue and allergies the answer is always simply one thing: drugs. And although I am not saying that these are important if not necessary for certain health concerns, many issues could be alleviated or vanish if we focused a bit more on the way we are treating our bodies. Health coaching is the best thing that you can do for your body, mind and soul whether you are already sick or simply taking the precautionary steps. While you may not be sick yet, keeping up with bad eating habits, stress and lack of sleep will ultimately lead you to bad health if it hasn’t already so instead of waiting until then I want to help you with spending your time and energy on preventative health.
People choose to see health and lifestyle coaches for a magnitude of reasons, but I think one thing is for sure, every person can benefit from this resource! Below is a list of some (not all) of the concerns that I can assist with, and to be honest the possibilities are limitless.
