What is A Health Coach?

Don't worry, it's not all about green juice!


In one of my recent posts, How I Came Into My Most Authentic Self and Finally Found Peace, I spoke about how I was going to start a Health Coaching practice. Since March, I've been studying nutrition at the Institute for Integrative Nutrition and am at the point in the program now where I can begin taking on clients.  Woo hoo!  I'm excited and eager to help people lead a more balanced, healthier lifestyle. You're probably asking, 'what is a health coach anyway?'  Allow me to explain...

Simply put – a health coach is a wellness authority who acts as a nutrition and lifestyle guide to help their clients feel their best.  We believe in bio-individuality, that there isn't a one size fits all plan, and cater wellness programs to help meet our clients needs, goals and lifestyles.  

Besides nutrition, health coaches take the time to delve into other sources of nourishment such as exercise, relationships, work and spirituality.  These all play an important role in our overall wellness and are often the causes of the way we eat.  

I believe in the power of food as medicine and am excited to be able to have the knowledge and understanding of how to help people come into their best self.
