Health Coach Q & A
What is a health coach?
A health coach is a type of wellness expert who can support your journey toward healing. The health coaches at Integrative Medical NY have a wide range of specialties and expertise in different areas, such as holistic nutrition, chronic illness, behavioral transformation, and mindfulness.
Health coaches may not have the same credentials as physicians or nurse practitioners, but they specialize in key areas that support your healing in a holistic, personalized way. Your health coach at Integrative Medical NY can support all aspects of your care and work with the on-staff physicians and practitioners.
How can a health coach help me?
Working one-on-one with a health coach is one of the fastest ways to achieve your wellness goals. With a customized treatment plan, health coach services may include:
With dietary support, you learn how food supports your health, you get personalized recommendations for supplements or vitamins, and you learn how to plan meals or navigate emotional challenges around food.
Behavioral changes teach you how to adopt healthier lifestyle habits when it comes to exercise, stress management, sleep quality, relationships, and more.
Mindfulness helps you cultivate more awareness of self-care, understand the healing journey, and create space for a more mindful, balanced life. You develop a meditation practice, learn to cope with anxiety or fear, and find resilience through challenges.
What results can I expect working with a health coach?
The benefits of a health coach are numerous, and each patient has a unique journey. At Integrative Medical NY, you can expect your health coach to help you meet specific goals, whether it’s changing your relationship with food, finding the strength to battle an illness, or implementing better habits around exercise.
You also develop a strong and trusting relationship with a wellness expert who understands and supports all aspects of your health. This includes your physical, emotional, mental, and even spiritual well-being.
As a guide, a cheerleader, a friend, and an advocate, your health coach is dedicated to helping you find healing and happiness.
