Frequently Asked Questions

1

What is health coaching?

Health coaching is a non-medical approach for improving and maintaining one’s health and wellness. It focuses on the person as a whole—mind, body, and spirit. Health coaches enable the reflection and awareness needed to define personal goals, develop a plan of action, and navigate the journey ahead. They offer the support necessary to make challenging goals achievable.

Health and wellness coaches are trained professionals who support you to get through life challenges. For example, it’s no secret that stress levels in modern society are shooting up—affecting people’s lifestyles and health by triggering an illness or worsening an existing health issue. In women, chronic stress can cause depression, anxiety, menstrual problems, obesity, and change in bowel movements. Finding a support system to cope with life’s increasing demands makes good sense; it improves quality of life and saves future health care costs. This is where health and wellness coaches come into the picture.

2

Are health coaching and medical care related?

Health coaching is a complementary approach (to conventional medicine) for improving one’s health and wellness. It does not replace the need for conventional medicine. Doctors have embraced health coaching because of its efficacy.

3

Does health coaching work?

Scientific studies have shown that health coaching is one of the best ways to make and sustain healthy lifestyle choices. Health coaching is shown to substantially improve self-motivation, health behaviors, and health outcomes, while reducing health cost.

4

Does online health coaching work?

Health coaching has traditionally been face-to-face. Studies have shown online coaching to be equally effective. As a result, health coaching is moving online, overcoming location and schedule barriers.

5

How to know if I need a health coach?

The first sign that you may need a health coach is the constant lack of holistic health and well-being, which means being physically, mentally, emotionally, and socially fit. In other words, if you (or your loved one) have been struggling to meet your health goals, losing productivity, feeling anxious, depressed, or confused, and facing issues at work or in your personal life, it is time to seek help and start working with a Ginger-U health and wellness coach. So, do not suffer in silence. Instead, act now to take control of your life.

How do I know if health coaching is for me?

What if I try health coaching and don’t like it?

You may discontinue coaching at any time after your coaching begins, even during a health coaching session. If you no longer want health coaching sessions for any reason, please email a stop service notice to compliance@ginger-u.com stating that you want to stop receiving health coaching services.
