Scientific and medical experts on why coaching works
"We know supplements alone are not the answer. That’s why we still see the problems that we see today.
The best approach incorporates the natural products that address the biochemical components of disrupted sleep and the behavioral changes required to get a good nights’ rest.
Health coaching is a wave of the future and by bringing our expertise in sleep we can really individualize a person’s experience, the plan, and the outcome."
"Sleep is a complex phenomenon and that impacts every aspect of our life. And as a result, every aspect of our life impacts our sleep. Things like stress management, exercise, diet, caffeine intake, and the previous night's sleep all tie into how your current night of sleep is going to go, as well as your mindset, attitudes, and your fears."
"One of the biggest reasons to consider coaching is because it helps to look at the root of what's driving the sleep disruption rather than just taking things to mask the main issue. It really helps to take 30 minutes to think about what is going on with your sleep and what else you can add to the picture that might enhance the quality of sleep."
