You may be a person who is seeking help to Prevent illness, solve a Chronic illness, or be Supportive to a loved one who is ill. There are additional resources located at the bottom of this page and across the site for you.
Why Being Informed is Key to your Health
Healthcare in the United States is an expensive and rapidly changing industry. The under-utilization of preventative measures, rates of preventable illness and prevalence of chronic disease suggest that the U.S. healthcare system does not sufficiently promote wellness.*
The average life expectancy for Americans in 2018 was 78.7 years. Understanding how to sustain healthy habits over these 70+ years is a considerable factor in quality of life. If you have found your way to this website, you’re likely interested in the Preventative care and expert resources for Chronic Illness care that are fundamental to this concept of wellness.
Needed health and wellness resources
In the following section, to help make a meaningful impact in preventing illness and addressing chronic conditions in a holistic way, consider the following resources. Holland Health Coaching is committed to supporting health by providing this needed information and support.
Obesity and Weight Management Resources
Obesity in the U.S. has more than doubled for adults from 15% of the population to 34%, and it has nearly tripled for children and adolescents to nearly 17%.
In the Solution StarterTM Program for Prediabetes, I support enrolled community members as they drop 5-10% of their starting body weight and increase their physical activities to 150-minutes each week. This resource is innovative because it allows the participants to address their overall health from the comfort of their homes.
The resources that follow will also enable you to reach out to other organizations that work with those who need to understand how their increasing weight is a risk for other illnesses like heart disease.
Food for Families in Need Resources
Food insecurity or aid to families in need is another health and wellness issue in America. Many people who seek out health coaching are able to purchase a wide variety of foods, or eat in upscale restaurants that cater to their thriving lifestyles.
Unfortunately, not all Americans have stable access to this basic element to good health. That is why Holland Health Coaching is dedicated to the financial support of the Feeding America Network. Growing resources and awareness for this organization is a path to helping build a healthier America.
Preventative Care and Caring Expert Resources
Another type of health and wellness resource you may need involves your engagement with the U.S. healthcare industry. A majority of those who seek out the services of a health and wellness coach do so to have their health questions answered.
Research today tells us that many people believe the short annual discussions with their doctors are not satisfying. They are reporting a relationship disconnect at the doctor’s office. Many of my coaching clients are looking for wellness support instead of medication and they need to be seen and heard as they engage with healthcare providers.
This is why, as a holistic health coach, I help clients prepare for their medical appointments so they get the information they need. To help you have a better result at your next doctor’s appointment, I invite you to download The Starting Line worksheet. Help your primary care doctor explain your key health numbers and work with you to create a plan of wellness action!
Here’s to your good health!
