Health and Wellness Coach
The CDC estimates as much as 80% of chronic diseases could be prevented, delayed, or alleviated, through lifestyle changes. We are all unique and have different genes, backgrounds and environments. But even with our differences, there are some basic requirements for good health. Healthy eating, moving more, having a supportive social environment, and managing stress are all part of living a healthy life.
After I retired, I had time to pay more attention to my health and I started looking into preventative measures for a long and healthy life. I understand and continue to learn about my family’s history of health and disease. My father had dementia and my mother had cardio vascular disease. While taking care of my father, my mother died from a stroke. I became very interested in preventing dementia and cardio vascular disease. I eat a healthy diet based on my personal need and beliefs, move a lot in all directions, and spend time with family and friends. I started to read and take classes on many aspects of health and then decided I would like to share that knowledge with others so I became a Health and Wellness Coach.
I’ve coached many people who have wanted to change their lifestyle. I particularly enjoy working with people over 45 that want to make lifestyles changes to improve cognition and cardio vascular health. As we get older, our bodies start to lose some of our natural defenses and may needs additional support. For some people that means moving more and better, eating to optimize their bodies needs, or learning how to relax. Maybe you don’t even know where to start. As a Health and Wellness Coach I can help you reach your dreams and goals for better health.
