Health coaches are needed NOW!. The Dis-ease care system needs them. Our medical industry continues to advance scientifically and doctors have very little time (or training) to talk about healthy lifestyles.
As a doctor, I worked primarily to identify and treat symptoms.
There is only so much a primary care doctor can do. There is no time to really work with patients on developing goals and making changes.
I am excited to see more and more doctors starting to look towards health coaches to supplement the care of patients.
A study published in US National Institute of health, showed patients who received coaching and advice from primary care physicians (with or without the assistance by nurse educators) showed improvement in LDL-cholesterol.*
Another study in the UK showed that health coaching improves the management of chronic diseases. They observed that patients felt more motivated and closely supported to work towards their health goals with the addition of having a health coach.
Gyms, insurance companies, corporate wellness programs and schools are seeking out peer health coaches to supplement their health programs. Health Coaches are needed to help guide, empower, support and motivate individuals to implement and sustain lifestyle and behavioral changes.
I am passionate about supporting and educating health coaches to creates successful business so they can work full time in their desired field.
What I have found is new coaches have no idea about how to start a business and the elements involved in creating a successful business.
