Health Coaching Is About Lifestyle And Habit Change
The most influential trend in medicine today, growing exponentially, is the emerging field of what is known as Lifestyle Medicine-lifestyle as treatment, not just prevention.
Many people tend to think of advances in medicine as high-tech and expensive, such as a new drug, laser, or surgical procedure. They often have a hard time believing that something as simple as diet and lifestyle changes can make such a powerful difference in our lives-but they often do. Medical researchers from around the world are using high-tech, expensive, state of the art scientific measures to prove the power of these simple, low tech, and low cost interventions.
Clinical research spanning the past four decades shows , for the first time, that a whole-food, plant based diet, combined with moving more, loving more, and stressing less, can reverse the progression of most chronic disease, including the so called autoimmune or “mystery illnesses.”
And in the latest research looking at telomeres, the ends of the chromosones that control aging, positive lifestyle changes have been shown to lengthen the telomeres. And as our telomeres get longer, our lives get longer. Thus our genes are a predisposition , but our genes are not our fate.
In each of these studies , it was found that the more people changed their diet and lifestyle, the more they improved and the better they felt-at any age. It's not all or nothing. So if you indulge yourself one day, just eat healthier the next.
Our 90 day transformational programs are the right step at the right time. They can help you transform your life for the better in sustainable ways. Because these underlying biological mechanisms are so dynamic, if you eat and live this way for just one week, you're likely to feel so much better so quickly that you'll find these are choices worth making-not from fear of dying but joy of living.
The Role of Thought Patterns and Beliefs In Habit Change
We agree with Dr. Rankin when she states in Mind Over Medicine, “The body doesn't fuel how we live our lives. Instead, it is a mirror of how we live our lives.” We therefore especially focus on limiting beliefs, negative thoughts, relationship patterns, and the ability to authentically communicate, as we work with clients on health issues.
We believe that such a holistic approach is necessary in order to sustain lasting results. Otherwise, as perhaps you have experienced, you may lose the weight, stop the cravings, or gain another desired outcome, only to discover that you can't sustain it, and your problem comes flooding back again.
