Why choose Health Coaching and Lifestyle Medicine?
Most contemporary diseases are caused by bad habits of our everyday life, so changes in our lifestyle should be part of any treatment.
We have to understand which habits are those, how they affect us and the fact that medicines and other forms of therapy work in parallel to any lifestyle changes.
Patients, when they realize that changes in lifestyle are required, become committed, motivated and responsible. Alteration of habits leads to long-term therapy, even a reversal of the disease. In the end, deciding to be more healthy costs less than surrendering to disease.
