A Health Coach is a trained healthcare professional, that helps clients improve their health through easily modified diet and lifestyle changes. They work in preventative medicine rather than curative medicine- helping to reduce the onset of chronic disease or illness. A Health Coach can give you the knowledge, confidence and skill to improve your health independently.
What is Integrative Nutrition?
Integrative nutrition combines principles of nutrition therapy with integrative medicine.
It goes beyond basic dietary guidelines by incorporating digestive health and root causes for imbalance.
Your environmental impact, genes, physiological, and psychological factors are taken into account, before providing education, and guidance for personalised diet & lifestyle recommendations.
These could include dietary changes, lifestyle modifications, specific foods, meal timing, meal patterns, physical activity recommendations, nutrient analysis, collaboration with health care team, medication interactions, supplement advice and more- depending on your specific needs.
Will you put me on a specific diet?
No! Diets simply don't work. We have bodies that are as unique as our fingerprints, and I would never recommend one diet for everybody. Instead, we will work together to identify the foods that work best for your body type, taking into account your medical history and current health. I will educate you about foods that benefit hormones, depending on what stage your body is at. This approach is proven to provide long-term results.
How long will it take for me to see a change?
This will vary from person to person, as we are all unique. However, a minimum of 3 months is required to create behaviour change and up to 6 months to notice changes such as a decrease in symptoms.
My programs are designed to avoid radical changes to diet and lifestyle, so you don't stress your body's natural physiology.
I'm not sure if my symptoms are due to hormone imbalance
Don't worry! Book a FREE call with me, and we can discuss your current health, and whether my programs are suitable for what you are experiencing.
I have a chronic condition and see a doctor regularly. Can I still work with you?
Yes! I can absolutely work with you. As a healthcare professional, I am trained to work in partnership with others in the medical field.
Can you diagnose me?
No! Health Coaches cannot diagnose medical conditions. However don't worry! I am trained to recognise medical conditions, and would refer you to a treating physician, should the need arise.
