How do I get started?
The first step is to schedule a FREE 50-min Health Consultation!! You may book this online or contact Nicole. This session can be completed in a variety of ways – in-person (if distance allows), online via video conferencing, or over the phone.

You will then be contacted by Nicole Turner, your Certified Integrative Health Coach and she will send you a Health History form to fill out. A Health History form will give your Health Coach a starting block for creating your personalized 6-month program.

In our initial consultation, we discuss your current health situation. We identify your primary areas of concern and create attainable goals for a healthier diet and lifestyle. We then design an initial plan which will guide you to reach your targets as well as customize which future individual coaching services would work best to achieve sustainable results.

What is a Certified Integrative Holistic Health Coach?
Your Certified Integrative Holistic Health Coach is a wellness authority and supportive mentor who will motivate and guide you in cultivating positive health choices. Different than a Dietician or a Therapist, Health Coaches educate and support clients to achieve their health goals through lifestyle, dietary and behavior adjustments. Proper health coach training ensure that Health Coaches know how to work with a variety of individuals and equip them with the tools necessary to best fit the needs of their clients.

As more and more awareness is given to preventative care, health coaching is seen as a vital aspect of creating healthy lifestyle changes. Health Coaches are becoming recognized as essential and integral parts of a successful health and well-being regimen. They help clients sift through the avalanche of nutritional information available today – providing concise, targeted, and fact-based information for you to act on.

How long does it take to see results?
We will meet twice a month, for a total of 12 sessions, with each session lasting 45-50 minutes. This can be achieved via in-person sessions (given proximity), online sessions via Skype, or by phone. Once you “graduate” from your first 12 sessions, a new program can be crafted to take your health management to the next level. Ideally, you would retain your health coach for life as a mentor/ally and a source of emerging holistic knowledge as you age.
But what if I crave junk food and slip up or cheat?
Bacon, queso, cupcakes, and booze may currently sound delicious, even though you logically know that in excess, they can be detrimental to your health. But we know that ‘Life Happens’! Bad habits are hard to break and we all experience food cravings. We will implement the ‘80/20 Rule’ in all things. Part of what is designed into the program is the ability to “cheat” on occasion or up to 20% of the time. First, we have to reprogram your taste buds and modify your main food intake to a nutritious state. Then, we build in the ability to relax somewhat to be able to gently re-introduce those “cheat” foods in a balanced way, or better, something that satisfies your cravings/desires just as much, but in a more productive way.

Food cravings are your body’s way of getting your attention. You will be keeping a general food log to identify what you crave and when. Your body is a well-programmed supercomputer – it never makes mistakes. We identify the foods, deficits, and behaviors in your life that are the underlying causes of your cravings. Many people view cravings as weakness, but really, they are important messages meant to assist you in maintaining balance. When you experience a craving, we deconstruct it. We identify what the body really wants. We then pinpoint the ‘why’ and suggest alternate superior foods to satisfy these cravings.

How is this different from other lifestyle and weight-loss programs?
Together we use a present and future-centered approach to facilitate measurable, positive change. The main focus is not ONLY on weight loss. Instead, it offers a whole mind/body focus on goals and desires and takes action on proven information that serves your specific situation, goals, and obstacles. This does not use a “numbers-based” approach to achieve target weight (such as “calories in” vs. “calories out”). Instead, Nicole advocates a whole-food centered methodology (suggesting a food that might be higher in calories, but is a superior alternative for you and closer to what your body really needs and can use). A good example of this would be something like using blackstrap molasses, raw honey, or liquid stevia (depending on the use) rather than processed sugar or a toxic synthetic sweetener. We focus on the “why’s and how’s” behind eating rather than viewing the act of eating in isolation.
What resources will be made available to me?
At each session, you will be given materials to help implement new habits in areas including primary foods (such as your lifestyle, relationships, physical activity, and inspiration); secondary foods (such as nutrient-dense whole foods that feed the body), self-care tips, meal planning, grocery shopping, cooking, and recipes. We will also be reviewing and updating your goals, progress towards those goals, any obstacles you’re running into and specific recommendations on how to overcome those, and more.
Can I just purchase one session?
The Health Coaching service is based on an active progression of bi-monthly sessions that gradually build on the next session. We are actively eliminating bad habits and introducing new ones, which take time to become ingrained in your daily lifestyle. If you’ve tried quick-fix programs, or “just eat this and everything will magically get better” approaches before, you know those don’t work. You need a complete, balanced approach to making significant and lasting changes to something as ingrained in you, such as what and how you eat…a basic life requirement. That’s why we’ve structured this as a six-month program – letting you gradually, but persistently, introduce the changes you need to actually achieve a complete and permanent result. You will see changes quickly, but it takes more than a few sessions to achieve that kind of permanent transformation.
Is the program affordable?
Yes. We find that most clients save money with our dietary suggestions and modifications, which at least offset, if not outright pay for the program. We will also tailor the program to meet your individual needs. You will be receiving solid mentoring and easy-to-implement steps based on 20 years of industry research, education, and practice. Also, there is savings for clients who choose to pay for the program in full.
