However, many traditional health coaches don’t have the training or tools needed to assist clients at a deep enough level. Working with a [...]
The neural tube is the hollow embryonic structure within a developing child from which the brain and spinal cord develop.

Paradoxically, the pathway to an optimal solution requires a Health Coach to help establish realistic, attainable goals. Health coaching is about empowering clients to think creatively about their circumstances and options, and then to adopt responsible [...]
