12 Ways A Health Coach Can Help You
Hindsight is everything. Looking back at my story here are 12 ways that I could have benefitted from working with a health coach and how one can help you.
A health coach can...
- Teach you that health and weight loss is about more than burning more calories than you eat, and not all calories are equal.
- Help you recognize the real effects of overtraining. And guide you on the importance of being fit but balanced.
- Teach me that "healthy" foods like Lean Cuisines are actuallyNOT healthy. And instead, it's best to eat real, unprocessed foods.
- Explain that certain foods can exacerbate conditions like acne. And can help you figure out what foods your body may not be tolerating and what you can do about it.
- Help you understand the damaging effects that antibiotics can have on your digestive system.
- Explain the value of home-cooked meals versus always dining out.
- Understand the mind-body connection, and NOT a bunch a fluff.
- Guide you to understand what foods to eat when you have adrenal fatigue.
- And SIBO.
- Be the bridge between your doctor' orders and how to practically implement them.
- Helped you navigate around misguided information, like fad diets.
- Hold you accountable to follow through with the goals and commitments you set for yourself.
This is why I became a certified health coach.
A year ago I joined a group program led by two health coaches. They helped me start to understand some of the items on this list. The experience was the catalyst for my enrolling in nutrition school.
And now I want to help you!
Hi, I'm Naomi
I’m a Certified Holistic Health Coach. I help smart and savvy women who suffer from chronic stress, unexplained weight gain and burnout, breakthrough their healthy blind spots and relieve symptoms through natural healing with whole foods and by making lifestyle and environmental changes. Why feel tired when you can feel fired up and ready to go every single day?
I love running outdoors, connecting with like-minded people, and exploring the San Francisco Bay Area with my pup, Coco Pop.
