What is Integrative Health and Nutrition Coaching?
Integrative Health and Nutrition coaching looks at the wellbeing as a “whole” by integrating a wholesome diet with emotional wellbeing and physical health, supporting clients to create overall wellness and a healthy lifestyle.
Integrative Health & Nutrition coaches look at the symptoms a client has and their current lifestyle and goals to create an individual coaching program, including diet, supplements, mindfulness, self-care rituals and physical activity.
Instead of prescribing one diet or way of exercising, a Health Coach creates personalised health and wellness programs to meet their clients’ needs.
Bio-individuality is key
Every person is extremely different; someone may thrive off a high-protein diet, while another person thrives on high-carb or high fat.
An Integrative Health and Nutrition coach’s goal is to create the health and wellness support that works best for the individual so they can create a lifestyle, which feels amazing, and can be maintained long-term.
“By creating a healthy body you are creating a healthy foundation. This prepares you to look deeper and find out what has been holding you back from achieving optimal health and happiness”
