What is a Health & Lifestyle Coach?
A health coach is trained to provide lifestyle advice and help individuals set and reach their health goals using food choice and exercise tools and common sense principles to establish healthy habits. Health coaches do not give medical advice, prescribe drugs, diets, or nutritional regimes, or diagnose any health conditions. We offer ideas, encouragement, and provide the inspiration and momentum for you to stay on course all in accordance with any plans prescribed by your licensed doctor, registered dietitian, and/or certified nutritionist (each, a Health Care Provider). While we might work with your Health Care Provider, we are coaches and do not replace the medical and technical expertise that only your Health Care Provider can provide. Further, the Coaching Services are not to be construed or understood to fall into the category of professional psychological counseling or psychiatric services.
Do I have to be or want to be vegan or plant-based to use your services?
Not at all! We are happy to coach clients on increasing whole and plant-based food options into their diets. The client has the ultimate choice as to what dietary habits they choose.
Can I use FSA/HSA to pay for your services?
We recommend those interested in using FSA/HSA for health coaching payment contact their employer or individual programs for advice. In many cases, clients may potentially qualify for FSA/HSA health coaching reimbursement if they have been referred in writing by their healthcare provider as part of their recommended treatment for a specific medical condition. Once approved by their FSA/HSA, clients submit their paid receipts for health coaching for reimbursement. Trimazing! Vegan Lifestyle Coaching does not bill FSA/HSA programs and cannot accept FSA/HSA credit card payments for health coaching services.
