Why Working with a Health Coach Is a Must for Optimal Health: Newsletter

by | February 12, 2021

In our practice, patients often ask us whether they should work with a health coach, what a health coach can offer them, and what results to expect.

This is why Bianca Kamhi, our health coach, and I, have dedicated this letter to sharing more about what a health coach does and about the benefits of working with a health coach.

WHO IS A HEALTH COACH?

A health coach is a supportive wellness partner who takes into consideration your values, lifestyle, career, relationships and health goals as they guide you to make strategic choices and informed health decisions. A health coach works closely with you and your doctor, to support you in your health journey.

WHAT DOES A HEALTH COACH DO?
As a health coach, I assess my patients’ well-being while encouraging them to drive the conversation and determine areas of desired focus. I work in tandem with Dr. Bojana Jankovic Weatherly to help our patients see the results they desire by implementing small but mighty lifestyle changes. I am the accountability partner that helps you get things done!

IS THERE EVIDENCE FOR HEALTH COACHING?

According to a review of studies published in Patient Education and Counselingpatients who engage in health coaching are able to better manage their weight, they are more active and enjoy better mental health. This translates to superior management of chronic disease in people who work with a health coach.

review of studies from the American Journal of Health Promotion found a positive correlation between health coaching and at least one health behavior, including nutrition, physical activity and weight management. Common features of effective programs were goal setting, motivational interviewing and collaboration with healthcare providers, all of which we implement in our practice.

Evidence points to the fact that the most important factors in developing chronic disease are environmental, rather than genetic. In fact, it is estimated that among US adults, > 90% of type 2 diabetes, 80% of coronary artery disease, 70% of stroke and 70% of colon cancer cases are potentially preventable by lifestyle and nutrition habits.

Together, we can change your microenvironment and habits, which reduce the risk of chronic disease, and can reverse chronic disease. If you want to have control over your habits and environment, I am here to help you. I look forward to empowering you to be the creator of your own health story.

If you are ready to experience your best health, I would be honored and thrilled to support you in your health journey. My name Bianca Kamhi. I received my certification from the Institute for Integrative Nutrition in both holistic health coaching and hormonal health coaching, and continue to further my education with additional certifications and programs through IIN and other institutions. You can learn more about me on our team page, here.

All the best,
Bianca Kamhi
