Did you see Dr. Oz on the Larry King Show a few nights ago? For those of you who don’t watch Oprah, Dr. Oz is the cardiologist of choice for the show. For those of you who do watch Oprah, Dr. Oz is a great fan of show-and-tell. When he talks about the heart his visual aid is a giant heart the size of a large TV, and when he talks about the excess weight in the jelly-belly, typical of those with diabesity, he shows a lump of fat that looks like a meteor that fell out of the sky. It sure makes the organ functions crystal-clear to everyone in the audience.
Well, a couple of nights ago, when Larry was discussing solutions to the health care crunch, he made this suggestion: Health Coaches.
In the days when doctors made house-calls there was time to meet the family, getting a pretty good picture of the patient’s surroundings, the family’s dietary habits, the recreation, social contacts, medical history and overall general stressors. The way the system is set up today, rare is the
doctor who has time to go into all that. That, and many other things, is what a health coach will do for you.
If you have a diabesity problem your coach will approach it by taking many factors into consideration. Diabesity is not just the way it is, and something you have to put up with. Its long arm reaches into your retirement years, and affects everything you do—the way you walk, the type of sleep you get, your relationships, and more.
A disease is never just one thing. Your coach will address the other “things” with you, confidentially, systematically, in a knowledgeable way, so that you get the solutions you need.
If you have any other questions on what you will get by working with a health coach, feel free to contact me. Or leave you questions in the comment section below. You can also get more information by downloading the free report from the right of this page. Looking forward to working with you. Feel free to call or e-mail me.
Cheers for now.
