Why Hire a Health Coach?

Wellness/health coaches are sprouting up like mushrooms on a dewy day! Why? Because a large majority of Americans are overweight and are tired of it. They are not getting their medical needs met by their primary care doctors. As 4th century B.C. philosopher Aristotle said “Nature abhors a vacuum,” thus the rise of coaches.
