Health and Wellness Coaching
Attitude Organic: “How health and wellness coaching can help? What should people expect from Health & Wellness coaching?”
Edith: “Health coaches can help by sharing what they learned. This is our passion so we are always learning and staying up to date with the latest research and this is not something the average person does so they couldn’t possibly know what we know. People should expect information, they need to want to take that information then and want to apply it. A health coach can facilitate the assimilation of this information but the client Must desire change and be willing to implement it.”

Edith: “People who aren’t willing to change cannot be helped”
Attitude Organic: “Tell us how your approach of “health & Wellness Coaching” is different?”
Edith: “I look at every aspect of the person’s life because you can drink all the green juice in the world but if you go home to an unhappy relationship then disease will find a way to manifest in your body.”
