FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Q: Can lifestyle change really be as effective as medication for treating and managing chronic illnesses?
A: Yes! It has been shown that lifestyle changes are comparable to medication when it comes to treating and managing conditions like heart disease, diabetes, high cholesterol, and high blood pressure. Additionally, even in severe conditions where medication is necessary, lifestyle changes are often recommended to improve the effectiveness of the medications.*
Q: Is lifestyle change a more cost effective treatment option than traditional medication?
A: It depends, but often times yes! The average American spends up to $1,200 per year** on medications. With our free tools and resources, as well as our affordable Human Health tracking course, lifestyle change can be viewed as a more cost effective treatment option that produces similar benefits (without unwanted side effects).
Q: Is Health Coaching necessary in order to have a successful lifestyle change journey?
A: No! Health Coaching can improve adherence to a lifestyle change program by increasing accountability and providing support, however many people are able to effectively change their habits on their own, with the information, tools, and resources provided by our Human Health Tracking system.
Q: If I begin Health Coaching, will I need to do it for the rest of my life?
A: No! Health Coaching is rooted in the art of behavior change. The goal of working with a Health Coach is to help you understand what it takes to be healthy and support you as you build healthier habits. You may enjoy the guidance & support and wish to continue, but if Health Coaching is done right you should, over time, learn to live a healthier lifestyle on your own.
Q: Do I have to make sweeping changes?
A: No! Sweeping changes aren't necessary, in fact they are discouraged. We recommend focusing on one small change at a time, breaking up your overall goal of greater health into manageable pieces. Focusing on one small change at a time helps to build momentum and get you on the path to greater health and wellness. You are capable of making meaningful behavior changes!!
