How health coaching can help people with food sensitivities

Posted on February 14, 2017January 21, 2018Categories Food AllergiesTags ,   Leave a comment on How health coaching can help people with food sensitivities

When I first found out how bad my food allergies and food sensitivities are I was overwhelmed. I really wish that I would have hired a health coach. My experience with the ALCAT test

Here are some of the ways a health coach can help children and adults with food allergies and or food sensitivities:

1. Help with finding recipes for foods you can eat. While there are recipes everywhere at the same time, if you have more than one food sensitivity and in some cases maybe even lots of them, then recipes will be harder to find than you think. A health coach can help you find recipes you can actually eat and enjoy.

2. Help with accountability. Health coaching can help you stay accountable and actually achieve your health goals.

3. Help you create a well-balanced diet and menu. When you have food sensitivities and even worse when you have multiple food sensitivities, then health coaching can help you to eat a balanced diet rather than only eating the 10 foods you know are safe and enjoy eating.

4. Help you overcome cravings. When you first start eating according to a new way of life, it can be tough. Health coaching can help you succeed and avoid giving in to your cravings.

5. Help you deal with people in your life who don’t understand why you are avoiding certain foods. This is a big one and it’s a much bigger deal than many people think or realize. Often the people closest to you won’t support you like you had hoped and health coaching with a trained health coach can help you help them to understand your new way of eating.

6. Help you with reading food labels and help you to understand how to really avoid things like gluten and dairy. It’s much harder than you might think.

7. Help you to not go crazy while avoiding certain foods. This is a bigger problem than you might think and a health coach can help you stay sane.

Why Hire a Family Health Coach?

Posted on August 15, 2016January 21, 2018Categories health coachingTags , , 1 Comment on Why Hire a Family Health Coach?

Have you considered hiring a family health coach? If you are like most families, this is a new concept and you may have considered hiring a health coach for your child or for you, but maybe not a family health coach. However, if you have one or more children who struggles with allergies, food allergies and or sensitivities, autism and or other challenges, then hiring a family coach may be just the solution to helping your child and the entire family thrive and be happier and experience less stress.

Here are five reasons why it makes sense to hire a family health coach.

1. Get help improving eating habits of the entire family. While you have only have 1 or 2 members of your family who have to improve their eating habits in order to either thrive or in some cases even survive, a family health coach can help your entire family to improve their eating habits. This can be very helpful and make it easier for the 1 or 2 family members who have to change their diet, and it can help with the overall health of everyone in the family.

2. Get healthy together. This is important so that the entire family can get heathy and you can avoid having additional problems with other members of the family later. It can also create a bonding experience for the other children with the sibling who needs help.

3. Take the presure of of you as the parents. Too often when a parent begins working with a child on a special diet, one of the biggest challenges can be getting the child to comply. When the child thinks that it’s only the parent trying to get him or her to follow a special diet, then it can create more pressure and hassles. Whereas if a family health coach steps in and starts working with the child, then the coach is seen by the child as having more authority and being more credible.

4. Save time and money. While yes you will invest some time and money into a family health coach, over the long term you will also save time and money on grocery shopping, cooking, dealing with meltdowns at the dinner table and more. A family health coach will help you accomplish what you need to with your child and the entire family and will save you time running around the grocery store and not knowing what to buy as well as give you tips on how to save money cooking meals for a special diet. In addition, you will probably avoid some medical bills by exercising prevention and preventing some serious health issues before they occur.

5. Support your child with special needs without going crazy. If you try and do everything you need to do when it comes to diet and lifestyle for your child, you will go nuts. I talk to parents all the time who try to do it alone and their is so much to do and so much to learn that having a family health coach will help you a lot and help keep you sane.

7 Benefits of Health Coaching for Gluten Free

Posted on March 30, 2016January 21, 2018Categories Gluten Free, health coachingTags , 1 Comment on 7 Benefits of Health Coaching for Gluten Free

gluten free health coach

Are you starting your gluten free journey? Or maybe you have been gluten free for awhile but are still struggling? In either case, you may want to consider hiring a health coach to help. When I first started going gluten free, I didn’t have anyone to help me and it was much harder than I believe it could have been, if I had had help. See this postHow I finally gave up gluten and you can too.

So what benefits can you gain from gluten free health coaching? While there may be additional benefits, here are the top seven benefits I see from gluten free health coaching.

1. You will be able to successfully implement a 100% gluten free lifestyle much quicker. Going gluten free is a lot more difficult than many people think and it helps to have help in making it happen.

2. Support and encouragement. Going gluten free is not only tough because of everything you have to do and learn, but it is also hard emotionally and mentally for many people. In fact, I believe this is the number one reason that people who get a diagnosis such as celiac disease or another health issue where going gluten free is either required or strongly recommended do not actually do it. They lack the support and encouragement needed to make it happen.

3. Save time. Implementing a gluten free lifestyle can take a lot of time and hiring a health coach to help you can save you time by helping you learn things that you overawes would have to spend your own time doing.

4. Save money. Not all gluten free products and services are created equal. Some are a big waste of money and a coach and help you with this. A gluten free health coach, can also help you save money by educating you about how to grocery shop and cook while on a gluten free lifestyle. Just because you knew how to do this before you starting being gluten free, doesn’t mean you know how to do it now.

5. Avoid getting glutened. This is a big problem with many people and it’s even a bigger deal when they first start this lifestyle. Having a coach can help you avoid this and reduce the number of times you get glutened.

6. A gluten free health coach can assist you in improving other areas of your health and wellness, such as choosing the right supplements and probiotics and in creating a balanced diet that is gluten free but is also healthy.

7. Need meal plans done for you? Or maybe even gluten free meals cooked for you. Some health coaches can help you with this as well.
