Why Health Coaches are Key to Success in Wellness

Parsley Health
March 3, 2015

For years, we’ve gotten used to short, abrupt, and impersonal visits with medical professionals. We’ve trusted wholeheartedly that these primary care providers really do know what’s best for us and they will absolutely help us heal.

Yet, our country is sicker, more obese, and more disease-ridden than ever. There’s something missing. And that has called for a new kind of health care leader to emerge, one where doctors take the time to help their patients get to the root cause of their conditions instead of covering them up with a prescription drug.

Parsley Health is at the cutting edge of this work because it offers this kind of root cause approach to medicine in a modern, tech forward, and affordable way. But at Parsley Health we are also doing something truly forward-looking by having a team of health coaches who provide consistent support to each any every Parsley Health member.

So what is a health coach?

A health coach is a cheerleader, a guide, a holistic practitioner, a clean eating expert, and a healthy living guru. During the certification process at the Institute for Integrative Nutrition, health coaches develop a vast understanding of how food affects the body, as well as about how all elements of one’s lifestyle impact the health of every patient, from relationships to career to mindset to stress levels.

Here at Parsley Health, our coaches help you succeed. Whether you’re making changes to your diet and need an accountability partner or you’re looking for ideas on how to reduce stress —a coach is there to support you 100%.

Consider your health coach a motivational partner; someone who is just as committed to your wellness goals as you are and will provide you with all of the tools you need to achieve them. As part of a Parsley membership, you receive a dedicated health coach to help you put into place the practices outlined by your physician.

Recently, one of our patients expressed how refreshing it was to finally feel like she was being taken care of, as if she had a serious team advocating for her health. Well, here at Parsley, she does. We hope one day everyone will have access to this kind of health care; one with heart, integrity, and a modern approach.
