Introducing the Primal Health Coach Program By Mark Sisson

A couple years ago I had one of my biggest visions yet—something that felt bold, insistent, and personal. Approaching nearly a decade of putting my passion and resources into Mark’s Daily Apple, I knew the movement and community it had helped inspire were at a threshold point.

I’d heard from so many readers over the years (many of them health practitioners) who were living according to the Primal Blueprint with incredible results but were increasingly frustrated by the lack of public attention and educational resources for this path to health. Some were even in the midst of medical training, receiving instruction on the worn, conventional teachings around nutrition, fitness, weight loss and chronic disease.

These readers asked in their messages how they could reframe their education as well as medical practice to include the truths of the Primal Blueprint as they had experienced them first-hand. Could there be a means of direct Primal instruction to match that of conventional sources? Clearly, it was time to take Primal education to a new level, and that’s how the Primal Blueprint Certification was born.

And, yet, even then the question has hung in the air: how do we best encourage the dissemination of the Blueprint model and support those who want to share it professionally as well as personally? What more could we do to open the way for people to effectively teach as well as advocate for the Primal promise?

The answer is this announcement today. I’m proud to introduce the first and preeminent ancestral health coaching school: the Primal Health Coach program.

Why the Primal Health Model?

Primal Health Coaching is the singular coaching certification founded in scientifically validated ancestral health principles.

The context for this model, the acclaimed Primal Blueprint, supports maximum vitality and well-being through the timeless integration of strategies across a broad spectrum of lifestyle dimensions, including nutrition, fitness, sleep, stress management, sun, play and enrichment.primal-health-coach-square.jpg

The goal is straightforward even while the biological mechanisms are complex: normalize hormonal responses by adapting evolutionary patterns for modern day lifestyles and effecting desirable change in gene expression patterns toward optimum functioning.

The result is a reasonable plan that leaves plenty of room for individual design and preference. Know more : http://www.aprimallifestyle.com/

Benefits of Hiring a Health Coach

A health coach can help clients better understand their diagnosis and assist with following through on the doctor’s treatment plan.

  • Health coaches dramatically increase adherence to medical and
    lifestyle recommendations.
  • Health coaches encourage patient ownership of health care and
    personal wellness.
  • Health coaches help patients integrate lifestyle efforts with
    treatment proposals and can help clients optimize physician
    contacts.

Like personal trainers, health coaches (some of whom are also certified personal trainers) can assess a client’s current fitness condition and work with him/her to create a dynamic, sustainable workout plan that fits that client’s current needs and shifts with ongoing advancement.

Like therapists and life coaches, health coaches emphasize future aspirations but specialize in supporting the journey to healthy live and wellness by offering both concrete strategies and personal encouragement throughout a client’s journey.

How do health coaches fit into your health team?

More than ever, medicine is embracing the benefits of a team model for treatment and prevention. The health coach can manage the overarching wellness picture for a client as he/she progresses in fitness—as well as nutrition, sleep, stress and other lifestyle factors.

Health coaches offer services through health clubs, workplace wellness programs and private practices.

Health coaching also complements regular medical care by offering ongoing, personal support over time.

A health coach can help clients better understand their diagnosis and assist with following through on the doctor’s treatment plan. Coaching can also incorporate powerful lifestyle changes to augmentthat plan for a healthy living.

Improve Quality Of Life With Your Health Coach

Health coaches are able to follow up with patients on a regular, periodic basis to help them stay on track for a healthy living and answer any questions or concerns. These types of coaches are a huge benefit to doctors who are looking outside the box to increase the number of patients who succeed in treatment and improve their quality of life through education and support.

Doctors and their patients aren’t the only ones recognizing the assets of a health coach. Gyms, insurance companies, corporate wellness programs, schools, university athletic departments and even professional sports teams and Olympic trainers are seeking out peer health coaches to supplement their client and athlete programs.

Health coaches are sought out as mentors to help guide, empower, support and motivate individuals to implement and sustain lifestyle and behavioral changes in order to achieve health, fitness and athletic goals.

What benefits can health coaches offer?

A health coach guides the overarching process—from clarifying the client’s vision to defining strategies for maintaining success once he/she has attained his/her goals.

Armed with holistic knowledge of how fitness, nutrition weight loss plan and lifestyle influence well-being, a health coach works with clients to design an inclusive, flexible and responsive plan to move daily practices toward healthy choices.

Over the last 50 years we have seen a significant rise in autoimmune disease, food and environmental allergies, diabetes and obesity.

Health coaches step in and help where other healthcare practitioners are unable to, providing patients with specific goals to work toward, recipes and diet guidelines, exercises and lifestyle management tools to help reduce the stress that could be contributing to disease or illness.

Health Coaches to the Rescue

The average patient-doctor interaction lasts seven minutes; just enough time to say a quick hello, get a run-down of symptoms, make a diagnosis, and prescribe a quick-fix drug to mask the condition. Meanwhile, 70% of all health care costs can be attributed to preventable diseases.

In response, insurance companies are requiring corporations to provide more preventive healthy lifestyle measures. To offset costs, corporations are looking to support employees’ wellness endeavors, opening up job opportunities to health coaches in clinics, hospitals and corporate settings.
