Health Coaching

20


20 per hour - Virtual OK

Help you evaluate the strengths of your health currently and help you set realistic goals to meet. We'll talk about your diet, exercise, sleep, mental health, lifestyle habits & stress, drug usage,

You are in the driver's seat. I'm here to support you, help you be accountable to yourself, brainstorm and give you additional options, and frame your path so that your goals are achievable. I'm very good at helping advocate with your various providers to make sure you get the care you need. It's hard to be persistent with medical personnel when you're sick or tired. I have lots of experience & tips to help with that.

This can be a one-off or short term process but it's usually better repetitively over the long term. I often use PRESCRIPTION FOR NUTRITIONAL HEALING as a resource and am very good with medical web research.

Training & Qualifications


I have been focused on my health through diet and exercise for three decades as well as losing 40 pounds. I have overcome multiple chronic health conditions after being told by medical professionals there was nothing to be done. I have also been a care giver for dozens of people in home based hospice type situations. I mostly follow Functional Medicine, the evidence based version of the paleo diet. I believe in the harm reduction model as well as Seligman's ideas from WHAT YOU CAN CHANGE AND WHAT YOU CAN'T. As a good Californian, I explored all the health fads: vegetarianism, veganism, meditation, yoga, low carb, juice fasting, macrobiotics, hypnotherapy and dozens of others. I'm a good compassionate listener, as well as very intuitive and a good problem solver.

Availability & Preferences


I freelance so my schedule is generally very flexible . You can set up an appointment with me here mbdo.youcanbookme.com Any slot in green is available.

Trading Preference: I prefer being paid in simbi

About Marty D

I've worked in the nonprofit sector most of my adult life with about ten years on the tech side. I've helped to organize and run sessions for two national nonprofit tech conferences. In addition... to being a native speaker of American English, I speak Spanish & French fluently. I have previously been conversational in Russian and German and know a couple hundred words in another half dozen languages. I have extensive experience as a trainer & workshop facilitator over the last 30 years in a wide variety of topics: politics, emotional support, health education, pain management, sustainability, social justice and spiritual fulfillment. I've moderated online discussions and taught at conferences & retreat centers. I really enjoy seeing light bulbs go off over people's heads. I follow a paleo ketogenic diet mostly based on the ideas of Dr Patricia Wahls. There are the usual diet charlatans out there but she is an MD following the latest nutrition science. I like direct authentic honest constructive feedback and true specific believable compliments. I love to hike, sing, play improv games & chess, and read sci-fi.show more
