Go From Pain to Peace™ Using my PxP System
Committing to a health coaching program is making an investment in your own health. While many people view health as a cost, committing to a health program may result in positive health outcomes and reduced overall costs that may come with diseases associated with chronic inflammation.
Here’s my system using PEACE Principles and the 5-Piece PxP Method:
P=Peace in health is a journey and going from pain to peace is a process. In this journey, you may need help to get unstuck in order to move from pain to peace. Understand that addressing pain and other symptoms of inflammation to get achieve wellness peace is both a process and journey…not a simple “fix it”.
E=Essence of yourself is important to bring to coaching sessions and communication with others. This means showing up authentically, as your true self and sharing where you are making progress and where you are experiencing challenges. Openness to explore your character strengths will serve to bring your essence forward and can support you to achieve your health goals. Essence may also be supported with essential oils, herbals, and supplements to foster healing and symptom relief.
A=Assessment, specifically self-assessment is important to understand where you have been and where you are presently. Assessment may include both subjective (for example health questionnaires, pain, and stress scales) and objective assessment (labs). Through this assessment, we do the detective work to look at where your subjective and objective measures correlate to help us understand where your healing opportunities are.
C=Connection with yourself and to others is an important way to nurture your health. Connecting with yourself through using mindfulness techniques, learning/implementing stress management techniques, learning and tapping into your character strengths can help you better understand where you are presently and where you want to go. Connecting and communicating honestly and tactfully with your friends, family, and significant others promotes authentic connections to help support you to move forward in your health journey.
E=Empathy is essential to you as self-empathy (self-compassion) as well as showing empathy to others. Being willing to be kind to yourself, forgive yourself when you are not on pace with your goal timelines or have taken a step backwards is important to being able to put negative talk behind you to move forward. Empathy can be encouraged with coaching on mindfulness and meditation techniques. Coaching provides support for developing situational perspective, and moving towards goals. Coaching sessions can also help to positively challenge you while withholding judgement.
Three main areas I focus on with clients:
- Figuring out how to reduce and prevent inflammation and pain by eating the right diet for your body.
- Exploring and uncovering hidden healing opportunities with functional lab testing to restore peace to the body.
- Formulating a personalized, comprehensive pain-free plan that will produce long-lasting results to keep the PEACE.
The 5-Piece PxP Method:
Here’s how implementing the PxP System works so that you can feel better, move better, live better:
- Document your history and your “why”. It’s important to have a lens into your past and your present before taking a direction to shape your future health. Knowing your “why” for wanting to make changes to improve your health and what your driving motivation is important.
- Test, don’t guess. When you don’t test, you can be chasing symptoms and this is often why clients seek out FDN ® practitioners who can connect clients to specific lab testing that can serve as a compass to point to internal stressors and where there are healing opportunities.
- D.R.E.S.S. for Success® (Diet, Rest, Exercise, Stress Management, Supplementation). This is a program designed by Functional Diagnostic Nutrition (FDN®) and used by FDN® practitioners.
- Tap into your character strengths to improve your success in making health behavior changes.
- Set goals using the SMART technique to evaluate your progress, outcomes, and re-adjust or develop new goals.
If you are feeling the effects of aging and/or experiencing inflammation and pain, I can help you with my PxP system which includes the 5-Piece method and PEACE approach to pain so that you can…
Achieve your health goals to:
Feel Better: You will learn how to assess and record your pain and stress and gain increased awareness about what triggers, aggravates, mediates, or alleviates your pain or stress. You’ll be more mentally present as you look to ways to reduce pain and stress other than just medications which can contribute to brain fog or other side effects or toxicities. You’ll be more mindful of what foods and activities do or don’t work for you and how to modify.
Move Better: You will learn and implement strategies that will help you achieve more flexibility and agility to that you can participate in more physical and social activities so that you can get out of the house more.
Live better: You will move from being stressed, in pain and hopeless, to finding more passion and meaning in your life through identifying what is most important to you. To do this, you’ll identify realistic goals and take steps to achieve them. I’ll help you tap into your innate strengths to help you along your journey.
