Perth Healthy Living - Holistic Lifestyle Coach
Here at Perth Healthy Living our objective is to help you define and achieve optimal health and happiness. For many this can be finding a way to feel physically better. For others this could be far more comprehensive - incorporating physical, emotional, mental or spiritual health. Here we have a variety of tools at our disposal, and great referrals to help you on your path to true health and vitality :).
Our modern lifestyle and medical system leaves a lot to be desired!! Lifestyle diseases are now the leading cause of death around the word (WHO), with 1/3 of Australia's burden of disease due to 'lifestyle risk' (google :)). And while it is easy to lay the blame at the individuals feet, little is really been done to make our environment a safe one. For example, with our lives so busy and stressful, and fast food so easy and cheap - is it little wonder that at the end of the day the easiest and cheapest option is the one we will take?
Types of Current Stressors:
Stress - work, family, social etc - and trying to fit all that into a 24 hr day!!
Pollution and toxins
No rest! - no sleep or poor sleep quality, minimal down time
Poor quality food - additives, highly processed, minimal nutritional value
With so many stressors in our lives today we often feel very overwhelmed when we become unwell. Our medical system seems to have an easy solution to every perceivable symptom - so again, we go straight to a doctor for a quick fix! But disease is a symptom of poor health - it is a consequence of living unhealthily. Here we do not focus on the disease, but in re-establishing optimal health so that your body has the best chance to heal. Disease is the motivation and guide to helping us identify where changes need to be made. As my teacher (Paul Chek) likes to say 'Is someone who is suffering a headache really suffering from an aspirin deficiency?' :) Here we endeavour to give you the tools to find better choices and the ability to follow through - so that you can create a life that is supportive of you.
We use 6 foundation principles:
These are fundamental to creating a healthier body, raising vitality and awareness, and ultimately leading to genuine happiness.
Here at Perth Healthy Living we work with the individual person - we are all very different and there is no such thing as 'one model fits all' (especially when it comes to diet!!). We work together to determine what is right for you, then we focus on incorporating managable lifestyle modifications that have long term, lasting results.
We focus on empowering the individual to meet their health goals through:
One on one lifestyle coaching
Nutrition resources and practical skill building
Comprehensive health assessments
Comprehensive core and back assessments
Benefits of Holistic Lifestyle Coaching (amongst many others!) include:
Healthy weight loss
Increased energy levels
Improved sports performance
Reduction in the aging process
Improved concentration and memory
Improved personal relationships
Achieving health and happiness is not always as simple as it seems. Here we use an integrated approach with quality referrals as/when appropriate. Typically we work with the 4 doctors first - Diet, Quiet, Happiness and Movement - and then progress as the individual case dictates.
