Becoming an Integrative Health Coach

For the past few months, I have been remiss in posting. During this time, not only have I been practicing as a psychotherapist, I have also been studying to become an Integrative Health Coach. Soon, I will have completed the entire course and there is so much to blog about.

Just to name one thing: Food and Mood are totally related. What you eat not only affects your body, but it also affects your moods and how you feel and respond to others. For example, most of us love our coffee in the morning (I know I do). But, if it’s too caffeinated – like all Starbucks are (including the decaf), you may find yourself a bit jumpy. If you have two, you might find you get tired and irritable. And, if you have the sugar, cream, whipped cream and other sugary additives they throw in there, not only will it add to your waistline, it will also affect your mood – much to the chagrin of your fellow travelers on your life’s journey.

There is so much more about this and your lifestyle and nutrition. I may blog about it regularly – or I may just create another website for Health Coaching. We all need a health coach to become the best we can be in all areas of our life. Unfortunately, the medical professions, for the most part, knows little to nothing about nutrition or the relationship between what you eat and your health and moods. “One pill fits all” is usually their motto. But, it’s not the case. Each of us is unique. And, we need to respect that. Neither one diet, nor one pill fits all.

So, if you want to learn more, watch this space. And, maybe even consider having a health coach. It can be done in person or remotely. 6 months to a new and healthier you.

Think about it. Let me know what you think.
