A Health Care Coach Makes You A Winner Join In !
Hi Its your Health Advocate Michelle Smith here, With the launch of my new program Health Care Shield , I just wanted to welcome you to this wonderful journey that you will be embarking on. I will explore what most health-care providers and fitness coaches will overlook (like self-love, environmental influences, social determinants, and medical factual knowledge.
The words Health and wellness are often used interchangeably, but they have slightly different meanings. Health is a "State of complete physical, mental, and social well being, and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity."
It's up to you to decide if you're comfortable with the level of training and experience of the coach you intend to hire.
If you have a specific illness or medical concern, ask their experience working with individuals like you. Are they licensed to treat people with medical issues? Are they aware of specific needs you may have or certain limitations?
In some cases, it may be important to find someone who is both a licensed health care provider and a holistic health coach (there are a few of us out there!). We're trained to handle any medical issues that may come up and facilitate healthy changes in the safest and most effective way.We are your navigation specialist that take you and your family one step further by being able to be your Voice
As complex human beings, our health is a combination of our physical, emotional, mental and spiritual health. When striving to make health changes it's important to be mindful of all areas of our well-being.
Many coaches are trained in one thing: nutrition, personal training, spiritual guidance, behavior change or weight loss.
Not all coaches are equipped to handle all aspects of your health that's OK! but always make sure that you Understand your needs properly........
Your initial assessment at the gym can really make you feel as if you are making BiG changes! Yes you are, But always remember to ask how the tools that you need to spend more money on how it will be a real life changer.
Always remember that your Doctor is the only person you will know for your entire life: because he or she is the loony one who can sign your Birth and Death certificate. So know what is needed for you to stay current with your health. After all we all are predisposed to something regardless of age.
A coach should be aware of the importance of treating people holistically and have the tools — or a good referral network — to help you in key areas during your quest for better health.
For this reason Our programs works with You, your fitness trainer, your Doctor to give you the results.
Is LACK OF KNOWLEDGE A DISEASE?
Just a Quick Reminder be sure to ask your Coach What tools they have to help you get Unstuck ?
Most people seek the help of a fitness trainer,health coach when they're stuck. They've tried to make changes but have found blocks, resistance and challenges.
Usually when clients come to me "stuck," it's because they have reached a road block with their health care provider along with requiring some time to explore the mental, emotional or spiritual factors that affect their health.
Exploring these areas can be intimidating and scary. A coach should be able to sit in this space with you and feel comfortable with the uncomfortable stuff that comes up. They also have the tools and training to do this with you in a safe, healing environment.
It is important for you to be able to advocate for your self always ask you fitness guru When would you refer me to a licensed health care provider?
It's very important to be clear with your coach what their scope of practice is. Many coaches are not medically trained and are not licensed to diagnose, assist, or understand symptoms that you may or may not tell them.
Just because a coach has worked with people with a certain disease doesn't mean they're certified or qualified to give you the right information to help you get the right treatment.
A good and confident coach will know their limitations and will be willing to discuss them with you. They should be comfortable admitting, "I don't know how to help you with this" or saying, "I think a more thorough work-up by a health care provider is needed."
Lastly another question that you should always ask yourself when starting a new health journey is will I still be in control of my health?
Lasting health changes only occur when a client takes ownership of her own healing. We're unique, intricate beings with different personalities, motivations and challenges.
It takes time for me to intimately understand my clients and guide them toward the best methods and approaches for them. One size does not fit all!
I love when people say to me, "that won't work for me" because we get to come up with lots of ideas on how to make health work better for them. In fact, when something doesn't work it usually helps us more specifically find what does ... and this is how we create success in our health!
Hiring a health coach can be a great addition to your health care team. Asking the right questions will help guide you in finding the best fit for your needs.
