What does a Integrative Health Coach do?
An Integrative Health Coach focuses on nutrition, physical activity,
relationships, career, and spirituality. These elements can impact markers of health such as stress, weight, and energy levels. The relationship between food and lifestyle and how they both affect health is the primary focus of an Integrative Nutrition Health Coach.
As a professional Health Coach, I am specially trained as a supportive health and healing mentor and wellness authority. As a graduate of the Institute of Integrative Nutrition I have been specially trained in nutritional healing and integrative wholistic wellness. This includes addressing issues to do with weight management, chronic illnesses or injury management, stress, imbalances in work or family life, or formulating a healthier lifestyle that supports you to becoming your best self.
What is the goal of Integrative Health Coaching ?
The health coaching process is designed to support you in identifying, setting up wellness objectives and, based on you individual experience, developing strategies that best suit you, to reach your goals.
It is not about one kind of diet, health fad, diet supplement, exercise routine, or one way of living, but instead these health coaching programs are tailored EVERYBODY as an individual. The process of health coaching is designed to bring about wholistic nutritional health and balanced full body wellness. These sessions are built on the philosophy that Wholistic Health is not just about the food on your plate, but also about having nourishing relationships, satisfyingly work, stable finances, developing spiritual practices, incorporating appropriate exercise, having refreshing sleep, making time available for play and fun in life. These programs are designed for our Belizean lifestyle to bring about balanced nutritional healing to your whole life.
