Tips for Wellness Coaches

Many of those who read the RealUGuru blog are Wellness Coaches, consultants or health professionals. From 1973 to 2007 I had a private practice as a Naturopathic Practitioner in NYC. As part of this practice I had a number of Medical Doctors working with me so that I could stay on the “right side” of the law.

As part of my work we had a well-designed system of client protocols. It seems today that many Wellness Coaches have not been taught this. Here are some ideas concerning this challenge.


Client Protocols

  • Functional assessment – This includes traditional laboratory tests; specialized tests that quantify hormone and neurotransmitter levels; structural and postural analysis, Chinese Pulse Reading and various mental and emotional assessments.
  • Analysis and interpretation – There are two areas of inquiry required here.
  1. A review of specific symptoms.
  2. A review of testing and assessment results.

To be most effective here a team approach is recommended. This might include physicians, energy healing practitioners, nutritionists, researchers, somatic experts, naturopaths, somatic movement specialists, bodyworkers, life coaches and mental health professionals.

  • Therapy – This would be a clinical protocol that might include specific nutritional therapy and meal planning, herbal medicine, aromatherapy, homeopathy, Ayurveda, Chinese Medicine, Chiropractic and/or Osteopathic Manipulation, seated or on-site chair massage, Somatic Movement Re-education, emotional counseling and life coaching, Hand-on Healing (Reiki, Polarity), meditation etc.


The Healing Program

Every healing program consists of three phases

  1. Entry level: The goal here is to establish a client’s baseline levels and existing chemical, structural and emotional imbalances. This is followed by a therapeutic protocol from which clinical responses can be monitored.
  2. Rebalancing: Here the client is retested to monitor the initial protocol and make adjustments as needed. This needs to be done every six to nine weeks during this phase which may last from three to nine months.
  3. Maintenance: When function has been restored, symptoms alleviated and retesting indicates that chemical, structural and emotional imbalances have been corrected then annual or semi-annual testing needs to be conducted to maintain the clients state of health.
