Lifestyle is the cornerstone of health
Chronic conditions – heart disease, obesity, and type 2 diabetes are largely driven by lifestyle and reinforced by the social determinants of health
Lifestyle medicine is promotion of evidence-based health habits, such as eating a whole food, plant-based diet, getting regular physical activity, getting adequate sleep, stress management and avoidance of intoxicating substances.
Confidently engage in conversations on lifestyle medicines - safe and breakthrough medicines.
Wellcoaches and the American College of Lifestyle Medicine bring your team a self-paced course delivered by experts in the main lifestyle medicines that prevent, delay or ameliorate chronic diseases – physical activity, nutrition, sleep, emotional well-being, and brain health.
Coaches help people change when change is hard. So will you and your clinical team.
We deliver training in coaching basics and burnout prevention for the whole team in primary care and other clinical practices. We train, certify, mentor, and support lifestyle medicine coaches. Lifestyle medicine coaches apply evidence based protocols for one-on-one and group programs.
The Wellcoaches protocol has ten peer-reviewed papers showing statistically significant improvements across many biometrics and measures for over 21,000 patients. Two primary care based coaching interventions demonstrated a sustained weight loss of 5-7% of body weight at 24 months.
Adding a lifestyle medicine coach to your team will deliver the attention and expertise your practice needs to support your patients in health-giving lifestyles.
