Health coach and functional medicine educator and mentor Tracy Harrison is our interview guest today in Episode 1045 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”
As the state of healthcare continues to be a challenge for the medical profession, many patients are turning to health coaches who can help them sort through their challenges and get well again. For a Massachusetts-based health coach named Tracy Harrison from EatOnPurpose.com, she realized the need for quality education for these health coaches was essential to seeing them succeed in helping their clients. That's why she created her Wildly Successful Health Coaches program to teach functional medicine principles to health coaches in order for them to attain their Certification in Applied Functional Medicine for Coaches. Tracy and her team has worked with clients and coaches alike to help them discover, understand, and unwind the actual root causes of imbalance and dysfunction in their unique bodies. She works with health coaches as well as many in the medical profession such as nurses, nurse practitioners, physical therapists, and even physicians.
Listen in as Jimmy and Tracy talk about what a health coach does, why functional medicine is the perfect adjunct to health coaching, the program she developed to teach health coaches about functional medicine practices, how the dissatisfaction patients and medical professionals are having with the mainstream healthcare system is driving them to look for alternatives, the satisfaction that comes from helping people get healthier, how Tracy obtained three degrees from MIT to demonstrate her love for researching the science, and a Free Mini Clinical Course on Conquering Constipation to sample the kind of teaching they do. This very well could be the wave of the future when it comes to managing health if the current healthcare system continues to fall short of meeting the needs of the patients it is supposed to be serving. It's another fabulous conversation about a critical topic we are happy to share with you today!
