What Doctors Are Saying About IIN Health Coaches...
“It’s an extraordinary time in medicine because those people who have provided healthcare in the past, mainly Doctors, are not going to be the people who create health in the future. Those are going to be Health Coaches. Because Health Coaches can provide the instruction, the tools, the information, the facilitation of behavior change and of information exchange that leads to the creation of health— rather than the suppression of symptoms or disease.”
-Mark Hyman, MD
“I’m addicted to Health Coaches. They’ve changed my life. They’ve made me a much more effective practitioner and a better teacher and, after all, Doctors should be teachers. I believe Health Coaches are in a unique position in this new medicine that’s being created as we speak because, as you all know, we can’t afford what’s going on at the moment. It’s not particularly effective for most of the problems that we’re seeing and Doctors aren’t trained in nutrition. So, Health Coaches are actually in a unique position to fill this void that we are in at the moment.”
-Frank Lipman, MD
In 2016, the American Medical Association came out in support of Health Coaches. They now recommend that Health Coaches be in all Physicians' offices. Physicians can make the recommendations, but it’s often very hard to put that into practice. AMA performed a unique study and the result of the study was overwhelming that when Health Coaches were present in Physicians’ offices, their patients had much better health outcomes.
