How are you feeling?
You’ve had some nagging health complaints and aren’t feeling as healthy as you know you should. Your energy has been dragging and you know that there’s something wrong. You’ve visited your doctor to rule out major health issues. He’s recommended watching what you eat, exercising more and reducing stress. So you’ve dieted and have been exercising. But that hasn’t worked and has left you feeling frustrated. And the nagging symptoms just keep getting worse!
So you decide that it’s time to take charge of your health. You go online and begin searching through the vast amount of information available on health and wellness. But there is so much information, and so many conflicting viewpoints on what works best. You’re left feeling overwhelmed and confused! You just want to feel better but you don’t know exactly what to do to help yourself get there.
So many people, just like you have found themselves in this situation. They are tired of feeling less than their best, yet don’t know how to get back to optimal health. The good news is that a functional health coach like our FDNThrive coaches can help!
7 benefits of working with a FDNThrive functional health coach.
Functional health coaches have a tool that most other health coaches don’t have. They have access to functional lab testing. The testing will allow your coach to take a look at what’s going on inside you so that they can see where imbalances are occurring in your body. This keeps them from trying to guess at what’s going on. Most trained health coaches do not have access to these lab tests. And they don’t have the training to interpret the tests. The lab tests help FDNThrive coaches have a better understanding of what is at the root of your health imbalances. This allows them to put together a plan that supports your body’s healing needs, helping you on the road to feeling better!
They don’t just focus on symptoms
Conventional allopathic medicine and many types of alternative health practices focus on managing symptoms instead of looking at where the imbalances are in the body. The functional laboratory testing combined with the experience of your FDNThrive coach allows them to understand why a body is out of balance. They then have a better understanding of what needs to be done for your body through diet, exercise, stress management, proper sleep and supplementation. The right protocol can help bring your body back into balance. Our coaches don’t treat disease, but help you to change your lifestyle in a way that supports your body’s natural healing ability.
No “one size fits all” approach
There are so many different ways to eat, exercise plans to participate in and ways to reduce stress. And it can become overwhelming to try and figure out what will work best for your body to restore great health. There is no cookie cutter, “one size fits all” approach when it comes to your restoring health. Your coach will make sure that your protocol is designed to work for you! Every person is very different. Therefore, what each person needs to begin the journey to wellness will also be different. Knowing this, your coach will tailor a plan according to your individual needs.
Making changes that are safe for you
There are plenty of questionable fad diets and supplements out there. And they are backed by millions of dollars of slick marketing that tout them as being “healthy”. So it can be easy to get sucked into ways of trying to help yourself get healthy that are really not so healthy! Your FDNThrive coach will help you to find ways to gently nourish and support your body’s return to health in ways that are safe for you.
Making big lifestyle changes so that you can improve your health can be challenging sometimes. Having accountability is important. Your coach will help you to stay accountable on the journey. Many people struggle to make positive changes without accountability. But having your coach as an accountability partner can significantly increase your chances of making health improvements that last.
A functional health coach is also a teacher. Each coach has knowledge of foods that can help your body, exercises that are optimal for you, stress management techniques that will reduce stress so that your body can heal and nutrients that you need to re-balance and restore your body to optimal health. They can help to guide you and answer questions that you may have so that you don’t become so overwhelmed with all of the information available online. They will educate you so that you can ultimately make the best choices to support your health.
Your support team
Your coach is your ally and are on your side. They are there to support you. They can’t do the work for you, but if you are willing to take the steps necessary to change your lifestyle, then your coach will be there as your cheerleader. Your coach wants you to be successful just as much as you do. And they will do what they can to support and encourage you along the way.
If you are tired of trying to do it on your own, and you keep falling short of making the changes you want to make, then it may be time to consider working with an FDNThrive coach. If you are ready to put in the work, they will help you succeed on the path to good health!
