A Bright Light for the Future of Health Care
September – October 2021 • Vol 3, No 117
Our current “health care” system is broken. In fact, it might be more accurate to call it our “disease management” or “sick-care system.” It rarely offers true healing to anyone. But what if it doesn’t have to be that way? What if we could reimagine and create something better? What if we could create a TRUE health-care system aimed at:
- Maintaining vibrant health
- Preventing chronic diseases
- Offering the multifaceted support needed for genuine healing to occur
- Honoring the bio-individual needs of each and every person?
I believe we are beginning to see a shift in this direction. Many doctors are rethinking the way they care for their patients. They are looking to address their needs in a more personalized, in-depth fashion. Additionally, thousands of certified health coaches are being trained every year. These coaches have the potential to provide a solution to many of the problems within our current system.
Health coaching is relatively new to the health-and-wellness scene. It is already proving to be one of the most effective tools for helping people recover and maintain their health. Health coaches can relieve much of the burden placed upon doctors and improve health outcomes for patients, providing a win-win situation for everyone involved.
