Why Doctors Need to Recommend Health Coaches
Chronic conditions including obesity, hypertension, and diabetes are taking over our population at high and costly levels.
A proven and successful cure for all of these conditions is a lifestyle behavior change in the form of dietary and/or activity modifications. Although behavior change is challenging, it is one of many specialties Health Coaches possess to make behavior change easier.
Most doctors are primarily taught how to diagnose and treat disease and are not trained to help patients change unhealthy behaviors. They also do not have the time. On average more than two months is required to successfully make a behavior change.
Here are some reasons Health Coaches continue to statistically improve weight management, physical activity, physical and mental health status:
Health Coaches take time to get to know their clients and their health and lifestyle goals.
Health Coaches help formulate a plan to help reach those goals.
Health Coaches guide their clients to make well defined, measurable goals and will keep clients on track by holding them accountable for making forward progress.
Health Coaches achieve lasting results by using a personalized approach that fits each individual’s unique life circumstances.
As a Health Coach, you have the skills and tools to achieve lifestyle behavior change to help reduce the burden of chronic conditions like obesity, hypertension, and diabetes.
Of course, with training as a Functional Diagnostic Nutrition® (FDN) Practitioner, you will have the skills and tools that separate you from other practitioners. This is why FDN Health Coaches never run out of potential clients, making them the most successful in the world of health and wellness.
And that’s it for this week’s Functional Diagnostic Nutrition® Vlog of the Week.
Isn’t it time you help your clients on a deeper level?
