Why Your Health Coach May Be More Important Than Your Doctor
What is missing in a systemized, depleted, medicalized healthcare system? A health and empowerment coach!
The number one reason that people become in a state of dis-ease or feel unwell is not that they have yet to find the right medication or “cure”, but that they don’t know they can transcend a diagnosis, don’t know how to do that, lack the time and money to find out, and feel alone, discouraged, uncertain, and overwhelmed.
A properly trained and intuitive health coach can provide quality, cutting edge information and suggest holistic, natural methods of healing. An intuitive health coach is always learning, and enters into an experience with you what is inclusive, respectful, and empowering.
A properly trained and intuitive health coach can provide much needed support that is personalized, be a sounding board, help you to troubleshoot, and provide encouragement, understanding, connection. The coach/client relationship shows you that you are not alone, and group programs provide community. A good coach is patient but also gives you a kick in the rear when you’ve spent enough time with your head under the covers wishing the world and your dis-ease would go away.
Organization can save you from an exponential amount of stress, and a health coach can kelp you to keep your poop in a group. They can help you to make sustainable, affordable, realistic, but “sky is the limit” healing plans.
So, why might they be more important than your doctor?
In this coaching session, Carla explains what a health coach is, why your family may need one, and why that person may very well be the most important support you have on your family’s healthcare team.
Here is to your deep and true healing!
