A Health Coaching Success Story

In a recent blog post, we listed six fundamental principles that guide our health coaching program. We're especially proud of our health coaches because they are exclusively registered dietitians -- something that sets WCS apart in the world of wellness. Our RDs possess a perfect blend of clinical knowledge and coaching experience, and they are making a difference in people's lives every day.

Let me share a brief example:

A few weeks ago, an employee (I'll call her Melissa) wrote to tell us how profoundly her health coach had helped her. When Melissa began working with her coach almost a year ago, she discovered that her body did not tolerate gluten well. Eliminating gluten from her diet was a challenge, but her coach offered suggestions and additional resources to help. Now that Melissa is officially gluten-free, she reports feeling dramatically better.

In addition to thanking Melissa's health coach, I would also like to thank her employer. Like so many organizations today, they understand that helping someone like Melissa feel better is not just a good deed; it is an investment in their most valuable asset: their employees.

I really like the idea of a health coach and many times I wish I had the ability to communicate on a regular basis with my Dr. to ask important health questions.

It is awesome to work for an employer that would pick up the cost of having a health coach but I'm concerned that as an individual it may be cost prohibitive.
