While the health and wellness coach industry is new, coaching has been around forever. Top athletes, top professionals, top performers and even best selling authors have coaches. So, why don't you have a coach? They hire coaches to help them attain peak performance. Why don't you hire a coach to attain the best health you can possibly have?
If you are unable to resolve health challenges. If your doctor and modern medicine cannot resolve your problem, then the solution may be in your own holistic health wellness coach.
Did you know there are three ways you can improve your health?
Self help, read books and learn how to resolve the problem ourselves.
Positive thinking. No question about it, the placebo effect is powerful.
The third way, get a wellness-coach. With the aid of a coach, you can reach your health goals the fastest. The questions you need to ask, what is your health worth. And what is your time worth?
Jack's story perhaps best explains why get a wellness coach. He had inoperable frontal lobe cancer. On the first meeting, Jack admitted he had headaches that the doctors could not stop. Nothing he tried would work. On introducing health and wellness coach health coaching, his response, "I will do what ever the doctors have me do."
It was almost one year later when Jack asked me back over to his house, this time for supper. Not realizing he was ready for wellness coaching, my wife came for dinner. As we started to eat, he said, "I will be gone in about 6 months."
Sharon, my wife, not knowing his health status, said,"Oh, where are you going to?"
Looking at me, Jack said, "Oh, I guess you never told her (speaking about my wife). Well, the doctors said I should have about 6 months before I die. Thats how long they gave me."
On asking and with Jack's acceptance, as his newly hired health wellness coach, his training started that night.
While recognizing his diagnosis and prognosis, the first thing he needed addressed was the headaches. Pain is so disruptive, without managing it, other health issues are difficult to eliminate. Giving him a simple treatment that both he and his wife could do, on following up the next day, his headaches were gone. The initial relief started within hours of the treatment. He said this is the first time in 10 years he was headache free. This was Sunday evening into Monday.
On Tuesday morning came a call from him. Turns out, for the first time in 10 years, he slept all night long. Again, all the doctors he saw, all the medications he took, nothing helped him get a good nights sleep, until that is, he got a wellness coach.
On Thursday morning came another call. Turns out his vision was improving. He could once again see. The tumor was pressing on his optic nerve and his sight was slowly being lost.
As of this writing, he had exceeded his expiration date by 3 years.
In addition to educating Jack in what he needed to do, there was also telling him what he needed to avoid. His cupboards were cleaned out and almost all of his processed foods were thrown in the trash. They were never replaced again.
Jack was an exception in that he was very compliant. Some people need more encouragement to accomplish their goals. But then, most people do not have only six months to get their life and health back or die.
Jack's story is not unique. There is Sherri.* a 14 year old. Her liver cancer surgery resulted in the cancer spreading. Sent home with 6 months to 1 year, her family did not give up. Rather they sought one of our coaches. As of mid 2015, she was liver cancer free. Having turned 15, she is back to being an active young woman once again loving life and expecting the metastatic cancer to be gone by the end of 2015.
We have helped people get out of wheel chairs and put an end to their MS. We have helped people improve their memory. Helped college students get better grades. Helped people be able to read and remember what they read. Wound healing, skin conditions, getting a good nights sleep, this list could cover over 76 different diseases or conditions.
One more story. Dave's first experience with a health and wellness coach helped him get a good nights sleep. He said, "For the first time, I could sleep all night long and not have to get up to use the bathroom.. It was incredible. Not only that, it made me smarter."
Nor sure what he meant, I asked about the smarter part. He said he, for the first time in years, actually won an argument with his wife. I kindly suggested that if he thinks he won, he lost.
Another story from Eunice will answer that question. Actually , Eunice will answer it for you. She came to us with arthritis. With some simple changes in her diet, ones that she could both afford and sustain, her arthritis pain was gone. She said, "This is the first time in 20 years that I have no pain. I thank God every day for having met you." She too asked the question, 'How come my doctor never told me about this?"
On meeting her six months from when first coaching her, the question was posed back to her. "When was the last time you went to see your arthritis doctor?" She responded that she did not have to see her doctor since she no longer has pain. On asking if she remembered the question, 'Why don't doctors tell people about this?" she said, "Now I know."
If doctors cured people, how would they stay in business? How would they support their practices? How would they keep making money? The healthcare system is based on treating people, not healing them.
The pharmaceutical companies likewise are interested in making more drugs to treat people, not curing them. The many studies on various drugs are funded by the drug companies who have a bias in getting the studies to look good. Consider how we are hearing of scientist going to jail for falsifying data in studies. These are the studies used to show that drugs are effective.
This leaves us with the question, what if there was a better way?
With a health and wellness coach, it is possible to eliminate many diseases and conditions that the health care system cannot. This is because wellness coaches work on a different paradigm. We try to help the body help its self. We teach people how to give their bodies what they need to heal. Most of us do not consider ourselves healers. We are facilitators. We help you help yourself and your body to heal. Rather than treating the symptoms, we treat the whole person. We treat the spirit, the mind, the body and we do so, getting to the heart, the motivation inside each of us.
If we cannot help you, there is no charge. But we still want to help.
In 2014, one of my clients presented with anemia symptoms. On getting the blood work back, he was told the doctors were going to continue his treatment and observe. Although he chose not to use natural treatments, on reviewing the lab values, I suggested he go right back to the doc and get a second opinion. He was in late stages of leukemia but the doctor missed it.
Or, the Zenker's diverticulum mentioned above. The client only knew he had a problem. He went through a barium swallow but it did not show any abnormalities. While we could not treat him, we did recommend what the problem might be and now with this knowledge, it was possible to the right doctor in order to get healed (the preferred treatment is endoscopic stapling).
Do you want a personal wellness coach? Here are my areas of specialization.
There are over 76 different diseases or conditions that I can provide wellness coaching about. As a professional nurse and as a holistic nurse, I have worked with everything from AIDS and ankylosing spondylarthritis or ankylosing spondylitis to Zenker's diverticulum. While it is not possible for me as your coach to help you with everything, many times it has been possible to suggest a diagnosis and get proper care.
While much of my work as a wellness coach is as a general practitioner, there are some areas of special interest and considerable research and study in.
When people are not making enough blood or they have blood related diseases, there are a number of natural ways to treat and increase blood count or bring about relief. When cancer is involved, since it is an emotional issue for many, we have a unique way of handling clients. On receiving the diagnoses and if we take you on, you only pay for the coaching when we succeed. I can work with your doctor or if you are taking charge of your health, work with you.
Both in hospice and out, I worked with doctors manage pain and using natural cures. Ending pain is a passion of mine. To date, I have not found a single person who it was not possible to provide relief for their pain. While that day may come where it is not possible to end the pain, I will still give it my best to bring it to an end.
Water will not solve all our problems but water is the solution for better health. Our health starts with hydration. More specifically, with water and electrolytes. With my wellness coaching you will learn how to better manage your hydration to better manage your health. Hydration involves more than simply drinking water. There is the often under estimated electrolytes that also need to be considered. These work in harmony with each other. If one is depleted, others can be affected. For instance, when your potassium is low, you most likely also have low magnesium. While increasing your potassium will fix the one symptom, it does not address the cause. By increasing the magnesium, both the magnesium and potassium will often normalize according to research.
While everything you need is here for free, many people want the one on one coaching. With so many people asking for this, we decided to make this service available.
