What is a Health Coach? | Integrative Nutrition

(upbeat guitar music) What is a health coach? There is a huge demand for a new kind of health professional, the health coach. A health coach is a supportive mentor who helps clients make healthy lifestyle choices, whether the goal is to lose weight, increase energy, or sleep better at night, a health coach motivates individuals to make lasting changes and feel their best. Why are they needed? Traditional doctors and physicians contribute to healthy living, but they don’t necessarily have the time or resources to help their patients build healthy habits and change their lifestyle on a day-to-day basis. One in five Americans will die of obesity and, every year, there are over 30 million preventable health-related deaths. Relationships, exercise, career, spirituality, these factors are just as important to your health as what you eat, and yet the current system fails to address them. Health coaches consider all areas of a person’s life and address a wide variety of wellness factors. Health coaches work in conjunction with physicians, nurses, and dietitians and serve to fill a void in our current healthcare system. Health coaches serve as wellness mentors who help people find the foods, relationships, fitness routines, and lifestyles that make them feel their best.
