As we go about our busy lives we often forget there are a myriad of people out there that can help make our lives easier, healthier, happier and give us a feeling of accomplishment – especially in relation to health, diet, fitness and goal setting. Professionals such as Lifestyle coaches, dieticians, naturopaths, and holistic healthcare clinics are set up to take care of the finer details of our health and well-being that may get overlooked when we’re concerned with our ‘big picture’ daily life.
Dieticians: This is primarily for creating and instilling healthy rituals for food and wellness. After learning about patients’ health history, favorite foods, eating and exercise habits, a dietician will help individuals set goals and prioritize. Follow-up visits often focus on maintenance and monitoring progress.
Naturopaths: A consultation typically begins with a lengthy patient interview focusing on lifestyle, medical history, emotional tone, and physical features, as well as physical examination. Naturopaths view the body from a holistic approach, working with reproduction, growth, metabolism and adaptation
Traditional Chinese Medicine: TCM practitioners view the human body in relation to its functions, it is only marginally concerned with anatomical structure. Digestion, breathing, temperature and emotions are the foundations of TCM philosophy. Acupuncturists look at the physical manifestation of how an organ function and how vitality or deficiency of an organ manifests in the body – through the body’s function.
Lifestyle coach: Life coach offers a professional relationship between a trained coach and a client, to assist and empower people through a structured process to achieve goals. A Coach is a client’s ultimate ally. They are singularly focused on working with their client to establish better goals, inspire them to achieve more, empower them with the practical and philosophical tools to do so, motivate them to sustain focus and steer them towards success.
