Sick and Tired of Being Sick and Tired?

I have a lot of people coming to me and asking me for help for specific health symptoms they are having.  Don't get me wrong, I completely enjoy coaching others in their health!  I love what I do!  But I believe that there is a misconception out there to merely solve for individual symptoms.

You can solve for individual symptoms you are having.  It's totally possible.  High blood pressure, cholesterol, blood sugar, chronic headaches, joint pain, obesity - all are things that have solutions in a natural and alternative way.  But were you aware that it can be more costly to solve for individual symptoms alone?

Another way to go about it is to take action to improve your overall health.  Many times when people set this as their main goal, they find that many chronic symptoms completely disappear!  It truly is the better way to set a goal to improve your overall health first, then see if any chronic symptoms remain, and then solve for those.  It saves you a lot of time, money, and eliminates the need for tons of different supplements you may feel compelled to order to solve for each individual symptom.

I also find that many people try to solve for individual symptoms because they are completely overwhelmed with the idea of improving their overall health.  They either think that is too huge to tackle, or that it will involve things that will be horrible and they won't be able to maintain, like major restrictive diets or endless amounts of exercise that they will have to plod through.  This sincerely is not the case and could not be further from the truth.

What if there were ways to improve your overall health without buying or taking tons of supplements, having to make major restrictive diet changes, or force yourself through huge amounts of boring exercise?  What would you do?

Some people balk at the idea of a health coach.  I'm always curious as to why.  We see the need for coaches in various sports like football, to be able to dance, and to learn a musical instrument.  Why not see the need to get a coach for your health?  Without your health, you cannot do any of these things.  Lack of health makes you miss out on moments with your loved ones, to fully participate in going after your dreams, to be able to provide for your family, and for some, lack of health prevents you from even having a family.  What can you be and do without your health?

It is never too late to start working on your health.  The human body is an amazing creation that can truly come back from the worst.  There is always a solution that can be worked out according to your lifestyle and budget needs.  Because of today's technology, health coaching can be done through the phone and email from anywhere in the world.

What's really keeping you from losing weight?  From quitting smoking?  From having the health to go after the life you dream about?  Having a plan tailored to your specific health issues, goals, and your specific needs dramatically increases your amount of success.

It's beginning to be a cliche, but sometimes the first step is asking for help, letting someone else's wisdom and expertise help you get to where you want to be.  It could be someone in your family, someone you know from  work or another group, it could be another professional health coach, or it could be me.

If you'd like to seek my help, my contact info is below.  It helps to interview people and do some introductory consultations to truly find someone you have a connection with that can help you get to where you want to be.

In order to change, we must be sick and tired of being sick and tired.  ~Author Unknown
