Across the healthcare industry, long-term symptoms of COVID-19, known as Long COVID or Post-COVID, remain a mystery. As researchers rush to understand the full spectrum of these lingering effects, practitioners are developing innovative treatment strategies to support patients.
Helping patients make impactful changes to their lifestyle can be both challenging and complex. In today’s healthcare landscape, many patients receive little to no support when faced with necessary behavior changes. Health coaches in the medical setting offer a variety of benefits, including a patient-centered approach that can help set individuals up for success.

IntegrativePractitioner.com is pleased to offer the Complete Conference Package, featuring all session recordings from the 2018 Integrative Healthcare Symposium Annual Conference in New York City.
The healthcare industry—and the laws and policies that regulate the system—has been changing rapidly over the past few years. At the demand of both consumers and practitioners who advocate for a preventative, whole-person approach to care, the industry has started to shift away from the traditional “sick care” model and bring integrative medicine to the general public eye.
It is well known that people are more likely to get sick as they age, and therefore there is an assumption that aging is a disease. There is no data that confirms this assumption. Rather it is now recognized that diseases of aging are more related to the connection between our genes and our lifestyle, diet and environment. Successful aging is therefore related to identifying the specific needs that an individual has within their genes to promote optimal function.
