What is a Health Consultation?

Are you curious about Health Consultations with Health Coach Amanda?

First, all Health Consultations are FREE! ($50 value!) The Health Consultation is a complimentary, one on one, 30 minute session with Health Coach Amanda. No health information is given out at the time of the initial Health Consultation. The purpose of the Health Consultation is to get to know you and your health concerns/goals, and evaluate whether you would be a good candidate for the 3 or 6 Month Transforming Lives Program.

Before the consultation you will be given a health history form to fill out, which includes things like what you are eating now, what you ate as a child, the health of your mother and father, your weight now and your goal weight etc. You will then return the form to me via email, BEFORE the consultation, for review.  During the Health Consultation I will explain the 3 month general Heath & Wellness program, the 6 Month Transforming Lives Coaching Program and how each will benefit you. (I can also explain the D.R.E.S.S. for Health Success® Self-Care System, if you were to need a more in depth VIP Program, which contains test kits.)   Then you decide if you would like to sign up at that point. There is no obligation to sign up!

All consultations and wellness sessions are held over the phone.

As I help many who have autoimmune and chronic illnesses, the 30 minute Consultation, the 3 month General Health and Wellness Program, the 6 month Transforming Lives Program, as well as the D.R.E.S.S. for Health Success® Self-Care System (test kits) are all conducted in the comfort of your own home!

This means there are no worries about traveling, or if you are not in my state.  As I too have gone through a Crohn’s flare, I know traveling can be an issue.  You no longer have to worry about the drive and arriving in time before you need a bathroom break.

Meeting over the phone is also helpful for those with other autoimmune and thyroid issues who also experience anxiety/depression.  Having phobias such as driving in traffic, or leaving your home will no longer hold you back.  I also remember when I was in my Crohn’s flare it was a chore just showering.  Showering and having a doctor appointment would put me down for the day.  Not to mention how weak you are just standing and walking.  Meeting over the phone should help to preserve your energy until you feel better!

Meeting solely over the phone allows me to reach more people who so desperately need my help!

Please dedicate this time to your health and well being, by turning off other phones, TV, radio, or any computer distractions such as social media. I know busy moms/grandmas/dads have a hard time making time for themselves and their well-being. I say take care of mom/grandma/dad first so you can then take care of your family. If it would be helpful find a friend or family member to play with your children and furry friends while we are on the call to prevent distractions.

Read a recent review from someone who completed a consultation and is about to begin his Transforming Lives Coaching Program.

“Hey Amanda,

Thank you again for taking the time today I really appreciated your patience and willingness to listen to the myriad number of gut issues/personal issues that have impacted my health as of recent. I feel very comfortable and confident that this is the best approach moving forward with attempting to provide some relief for the issues from which I am currently struggling. I also look forward to finding answers from the various tests that we decided on.

I look forward to working with you on helping to alleviate some of these issues and start to live a life filled with more energy once again.” Wed 6/20/18 at 6:30 PM via email.

Here is also a testimony about Lynda’s experience with booking a consultation with me. … “I had gone to Amanda for an initial Health Consultation. I must say I was very much impressed with her knowledge, experience & professionalism during my consult. I would highly recommend Amanda to anyone who is interested in bettering their health. …” You can read the rest on my testimony page.

 

I am willing to work with anyone ready to make a commitment to change and put in the work that is required to transform your life. I cannot do the work for you. (See below who the program is for and who it is not.)

Not sure if you are ready to work with Health Coach Amanda? Ask yourself these questions:

  1. What is your main complaint?
  2. How often does it bother you?
  3. How long has it been going on?
  4. What have you tried so far that (hasn’t worked)?
  5. What does it prevent you from enjoying or doing?
  6. Is there anything in the way of getting healthier?

Are you on the fence with deciding if Health Coach Amanda’s Transforming Lives 6 Month Health Coaching Program is right for you?

On a scale of 1-10, 10 being the most:

*Practice relaxation techniques?

If you have a high number on most of these questions you are ready!

ONE LAST THING:  You won’t find my office on your providers’ list. I have some good reasons why I don’t belong to your plan, reasons that could dramatically affect your health.

First, practitioners who sign insurance company contracts often discover that they can’t deliver optimum care. Instead, care is rationed. Patients must be dismissed before they are fully healed. Many necessary services aren’t even covered, especially in the area of prevention, nutrition and functional lab testing. Limiting care is profitable for the insurance company, but it can compromise patient satisfaction–and our reputation.

To maximize profit, insurance companies hire people to review our recommendations. Most of these “gatekeepers” lack even a working knowledge of functional medicine or clinical nutrition. It may even amount to “practicing medicine without a license.”

Worse, most insurance companies seem more interested in paper than patients. Huge amounts of paperwork are often required. It’s time-consuming, raises costs and takes us away from our primary mission of helping our patients and clients get and stay well. And insurance company contracts also attempt to govern how we run our business.

Your health is your most valuable possession. Please don’t gamble it with a practitioner who may try to serve two masters, or who was merely the lowest bidder.

Should you reach the same conclusions I have, please call or write so that we may demonstrate what affordable, yet independent functional medicine and clinical nutrition can do for you.  You can learn more about why I do not participate with insurance on this blog…be sure to scroll down to read the 4 comments under the blog.  >> https://amandagoodwin.biz/health-coach-hashimotos-practitioner-function-diagnosti-nutriton-practitioner-advantage-of-hiring-amanda-goodwin-april-30-may-6-is-small-business-week/

If you’re like I used to be, you have likely been struggling to find the right doctor, the right tests, understand lab ranges, and the best medications for your body. You’ve likely tried a number of diets and strategies that haven’t worked.

I know how frustrating this can be, and how confusing it is to try to make sense of all the conflicting information out there.
