A Case Study
Many of the most common chronic diseases in the Western world are now preventable using comprehensive lifestyle changes; this has spawned a new field of supportive guides called a health & wellness coach.
A health & wellness coach is a supportive guide who helps clients set health goals, fostering a positive mind-set around health and well-being. Health & wellness coaches empower and motivate their clients to become experts on their own health.
The following is a 4-year case study of a client who made a few changes to his diet, started walking daily, which led to restorative sleep and a better positive mindset. He is an inspiration and a role model of what is possible incorporating simple lifestyle changes and self-care.
