What is Wellness?
Wellness and good health have historically been seen a freedom from disease; thus, if you weren't sick, then you were considered healthy. This historical perspective on wellness is changing. While virtually everyone agrees that absence from illness is a primary component of being healthy, it doesn't however indicate anything about your state of well-being.
As a state of health, wellness is closely linked to your lifestyle and the choices you make. Each individual has a responsibility to themselves to provide for the essentials of good health - that being proper weight control, good nutrition, physical activity and exercise, and controlling of health risk factors such as tobacco use, alcohol and drug use and/or abuse. These things all have a role in wellness.
Research studies related to wellness indicate that Americans who take good care of themselves and make healthy lifestyle choices are healthier, happier, more productive, miss work less, and have lower healthcare costs. An article from the Journal of the American Medical Association (AMA) noted that, in one research study, the "wellness" approach produced a 17% decline in total medical / doctor visits and a 35% reduction in medical / doctor visits for minor illness. The participants in this study took part in a year-long self-care education program.
Since lifestyle and the choices we make been found to be the most important factor in determining your overall health, it's important for you to be educated about your health and "take charge" of your life and have healthy lifestyle-related goals. The lifestyle choices you make will and do have a huge influence on your health and your wellness. The secret isn't in healthcare, but healthy and consistent self-care. While traditional (Western) medicine is focused on alleviating disease, the wellness approach to things encourages you to take responsibility for your own personal well-being.
Wellness is much more than an absence of illness and/or disease. Wellness is a proactive and preventative approach that's designed to provide optimum levels of health, emotional and social functioning.
Wellness involves our recognition that we have psychological, physical, spiritual and social needs that are necessary for us to have higher levels of functioning.
Wellness emphasizes the whole individual. It's the integration of the spirit, body and the mind; and the understanding that everything we do, feel, think and believe has a direct impact on your state of health.
It's your turn to experience the value of having a personal cheerleader, mentor, and confidant. A coach provides you with the tools and the insights to recharge and revamp your life from the inside out.

When was the last time you talked with someone about your health and received the personal attention you deserve?
It’s rare for anyone to get an hour to work on their nutrition and goals with a trained professional. As a Health Coach, I create a supportive environment that will enable you to achieve all of your health goals. I have studied all the major dietary theories and use practical lifestyle coaching methods to guide you in discovering which approach works best for you.
Most approaches to nutrition dwell on calories, carbs, fats, proteins. Instead of creating lists of restrictions and good and bad foods, I coach my clients to create a happy, healthy life in a way that is flexible, fun and free of denial and discipline.
No one diet works for everyone. I will guide you to find the food and lifestyle choices that best support you. I will also help you to make gradual, lifelong changes that enable you to reach your current and future health goals.
