Question: What is a Holistic Approach to Health & Wellness?

 

Answer: A “Holistic Approach” (An integrative, comprehensive and collective approach) to health and wellness is an approach based upon looking at the totality of the person, not just their symptoms or diagnoses, when creating and designing treatment, therapy and wellness options. It’s also an approach based upon a natural approach to wellness that considers the least harmful means of helping the client move forward and helping them overcome their present challenges, obstacles, complaints and symptoms with the least amount of side effects or unintended consequences. It’s also an approach the embraces the concept that the first response to helping someone from a health and wellness perspective shouldn’t be reaching for a prescription pill.

A high quality, proactive, holistic health and wellness approach helps the client build the mental muscles, a resilient mindset and a set of choices, habits and rituals before just handing them a pill to solve their problems. However, in the health and wellness field, there are circumstances (hypertension, diabetes, etc.) where a prescription approach is needed at least at the time of the crisis. But that doesn’t mean that the first solution to helping every person with a problem should be handing them a pill.

An integrative, holistic (i.e., comprehensive and collective) approach helps clients without causing unnecessary harm, and it encompasses a “whole” view of the client.

Question: What is the reason for Health & Wellness Coaching?

Question: Why are more and more people becoming overweight and obese and developing chronic medical conditions?

Answer: Being overweight, obesity, diabetes, hypertension, metabolic syndrome, peripheral artery disease, coronary artery disease, pulmonary (i.e., breathing-oriented) diseases and other chronic health and mental health conditions are escalating because people are stressed out and their first impulses and reactions are to use food and alcohol to self-medicate.”
Essentially, Americans are burned out, exhausted, frustrated and overwhelmed, and food and drink, based upon our basic survival drives, which are readily available, are the cheapest and easiest coping method available for most people.
Additionally, the presence and growth of unhealthy, quick options is leading more people to make choices that are more readily available to them (fast food restaurants, etc.) and that are quick, easy and cheap.

Question: Why do most diet and weight loss plans fail?

Answer: The vast majority of diet plans and approaches fail because they expect a person to make too many primary changes at once. In essence, they expect you to change overnight (instead of doing so gradually and naturally), leaving most dieters feeling frustrated and overwhelmed. And plans, goals and objectives tend to fail when they require too many steps too quickly.

Question: What is different about “The Nutrient Diet” compared with other diets, weight loss, and health and wellness approaches?

Question: What is the most important thing about diet, nutrition, wellness, health, and weight loss?

Answer: The keys to diet, weight management, and impulse control are habit and ritual creation, formation, and sustainment. Changing habits gradually and in a sustainable way is the only true way to be healthy and to maintain a weight and lifestyle that works for you.

The key isn’t doing what everyone else does. The key is combining the science of nutrition with what works with your unique DNA, metabolism, lifestyle choices and individual health and weight goals.

The real key is where science meets individuality and unique lifestyle goals and choices. These choices and habits all protect you from poorer health outcomes (including from viruses like COVID19). Maintaining a healthy weight prevents hospitalizations from COVID19.
