Why YOU May Need a Health Coach
I have hired many health coaches for my healing throughout my early 20’s. (Read my Health Story) It helped me get to the root of my digestive healing and get the results I had. It is something I believe many of us need, maybe you too. As a general rule we are not able to coach and guide our way back to health like we want to or think we can. It’s not because we aren’t smart or capable. It’s not because we lack knowledge or information because there is a lot of good information on the internet.
I believe there are two reasons that we can’t be our own health coaches.
We Are Too Emotionally Invested in Our Health
When we don’t feel good it becomes as much of a mental and emotional struggle as it does a physical one. We get overwhelmed, discouraged, anxious, frustrated and exhausted. Sometimes these emotions are felt in the matter of hours from one another day after day. It’s hard to take the next step forward or know what the next step should be on our own. We can get caught in a mental tornado of information and emotions and get stuck. Stuck in the mud of our minds and overwhelmed about what the next step should be. Sometimes all of the information can be a bad thing.
This was me.
When I was in the thick of being sick I never knew what to try and what protocol or nutrition plan was worth my time and energy. I didn’t want to invest the time into something that wouldn’t work. That left me as a dabbler. I dabbled here a bit and then dabbled somewhere else a bit and never sticking to something for longer than a few days of weeks. I was always looking for something new and different because maybe that was the answer (right?). I could never follow through with something because it was hard and I felt life was hard enough without adding a protocol or nutrition plan that wouldn’t work. This is where a health coach can step in.
A health coach can look at your health history, current symptoms and past protocols and use their expertise to recommend the next right step and the plan going forward. They can guide you and help you walk the right path of healing. It opens up your capacity to take the next step because you have a clear next step that has been outlined and customized for you (and only you). Health coaches aren’t living your emotions so they can help see outside of the storm and see the path ahead.
The Best of the Best Have Coaches
The best athletes have technique coaches. The top singers have vocal coaches. People that are at the top of their game and craft have coaches and mentors. Why should this be different with our health? If we want to be at the top of our health, we need someone who can guide us on the best path for our health.
It is good to research and grow in knowledge and I am all for growing in our knowledge of health. I know that I am personally at my best when I am working with a health coach or colleague.
