Good morning and happy Mother’s Day to all you hard working moms out there.  I had a question posted asking what a Primal Health Coach is so I figured I’d write a post about it.

The excerpt below is from the Primal Health Coach coaching manual:

The Primal Health Coaching system is based on Integrative Health Coaching (IHC), one of the most well-studied, scientifically validated methods of health coaching.  According to Duke University’s Integrative Medicine department, “Integrative Health Coaching empowers clients to make lasting behavior changes that are the cornerstones of lifelong well-being.  It bridges the gap between medical recommendations and patients’ abilities to successfully implement those recommendations into their complex lives.” 

The Primal Health Coaching system will teach you how to help clients make better health choices, make effective diet and lifestyle changes, and achieve their self-defined wellness goals according to Primal Blueprint principles.  The aim of the Primal Health Coach is to help clients extract the most joy, satisfaction, and fulfillment from their lives.

The ideas and concepts of living a primal lifestyle are not difficult to understand but given the complexity of our lives, human behavior and habits, making lasting changes IS in fact very difficult–this is why fad diets and other programs tend to fail people as these are temporary, short-term fixes.  Having a health coach gives you an expert who is trained to work alongside you and provide encouragement, accountability and work with you to figure out the road to health that works for YOU.  There is no “one size fits all” program out there but the Primal approach to living makes sense.  Everybody has different starting points.  Some people might be doing things pretty well and just need a few tweaks.  Other people are starting from square one and have multiple aspects of their lives that needs adjustment to positively affect their health and well being. Drastic changes usually don’t last for people—a gradual approach under the guidance of a health coach can lead to lasting changes.

Check out the Primal Health Coach website and Mark Sisson’s website for more info in the Primal Lifestyle.  If you are interested in having me as a health coach send me an email and we can discuss it further!

Hello and thanks for visiting my site. My name is Ryan Parnham and I'm a 37 year old husband and father of two from central Illinois (hope I haven't bored you yet). The reason I started this site is because I have a passion and desire to live the BEST life possible, and I want to share my thoughts and experiences with other people so they can educate themselves and change things in their lives to live the best life possible as well. I strongly believe that nutrition is one of, if not the biggest, factor in health, vitality and longevity. I feel I have a bit of a unique perspective on things given my professional and personal back ground. I have an undergraduate degree in nursing as well as a master's of science degree in nursing and am a board certified family nurse practitioner from the American Academy of Nurse Practitioners (AANP). I have been in the medical field for over 15 years now
