Coaching with Karen
Lifestyle Medicine Coaching
Your body has its own inner pharmacy. You have everything you need to live and age well. Karen wants to empower you to take control of your health.
Lifestyle Medicine treats the root cause of chronic disease, not just the symptoms. It reflects the reality of what a huge body of scientific evidence has taught us: healthy food is powerful medicine! Movement is powerful medicine! Mind-body health is powerful medicine! These medicines are readily available when given the opportunity.
Lifestyle Medicine Coaching involves the use of evidence-based lifestyle therapeutic approaches to educate individuals about how and why to eat whole foods, establish good sleep habits, stress management through self-awareness and moving meditation such as Chi Gong/Tai Chi/Yoga, exercise, and other non-drug modalities to prevent, treat and oftentimes reverse lifestyle-related chronic diseases.
We are made up of a collective of trillions of cells. Chronic stress and lack of vital nutrients pull the cells out of their coherent structure. If the stress and lack of life-sustaining nutrients become chronic, a complex web of disharmonies perpetuates; the cells cluster together and cell wall thickens then become asymmetrical—the whole cellular orchestra is then out of tune. An out-of-tune mind/body begins to experience a variety of stress signals, including anxiety, insomnia, allergies, food sensitivities, physical and emotional pain and eventually dis-ease.
“One of the most powerful aspects of Lifestyle Medicine is that patients become more engaged, active participants in their self-care, disease prevention and management, and overall well-being. The results include better health outcomes for patients and a fulfilling collaborative model of practice for physicians and other health practitioners,” says Cindy Geyer, MD. Dr. Geyer is board certified in internal medicine, integrative medicine, and lifestyle medicine, and is the medical director at Canyon Ranch in Lenox, MA.
