Leade Health Outlines Health Coaching Best Practice Process in New Whitepaper

Leade Health Outlines Health Coaching Best Practice Process in New Whitepaper

Ann Arbor, MI (PRWEB) July 14, 2006

Leade Health, a pioneer in the field of health coaching, has released “Defining Best Practices in Health Coaching: From Competencies to Processes,” a new whitepaper that will help establish best practices for behavioral change programs such as weight management, stress reduction, tobacco cessation and cardiovascular health. One of an ongoing series, the research paper is available for download from Leade Health at no charge.

“No defined health coaching best practices currently exist,” says Michael D. Mulvihill, President and CEO of Leade Health. “By establishing and utilizing a best practices approach, we plan to serve as a model for the industry in delivering best-in-class coaching, achieving behavioral change and reducing health care costs for employers.”

Achieving these outcomes requires health coaches who are client-centered, non-judgmental, and excellent listeners. These personal characteristics, along with specific knowledge, skills and abilities, are competencies that Leade Health will measure as part of their best practices approach.

In the new whitepaper, the firm points out that only a limited body of research examines health and wellness coaching. Overall, many gaps still exist in knowledge regarding best practices in health coaching. To begin to fill some of these gaps, and to investigate what makes successful health programs work, Leade Health is committed to undertake scientific research under the direction of their Scientific Advisory Board. This independent group will provide oversight in areas related to best practices research. In the whitepaper, Leade explains their research project to determine the skills most critical for successful health coaching.

Leade Health and its team of health coaches have a good start on benchmark data that confirms clients’ success in their health coaching programs. For example, Leade has served nearly 34,000 tobacco users with quit rates among the highest in the industry, averaging 27% at 12 months. Nearly 10,000 weight management program participants consistently achieve outcomes well above reported norms, with 89% achieving weight loss or weight stabilization after one year, and 37% losing 5% or more of body weight. Leade’s top quality coaches, products and practices, and years of experience uniquely qualify them to deliver health coaching best practices to the marketplace.

Leade Health is defining best practices using the Interactive Domain Model (IDM) of Best Practices in Health Promotion developed by the Center for Health Promotion at the University of Toronto. The center cites that, “Best practices in health promotion are those sets of processes and actions that are consistent with health promotion values, theories, evidence and understanding of the environment, and that are most likely to achieve health promotion goals in a given situation.” The development of best practices utilizing a comprehensive and systematic approach requires the commitment of an entire organization.

Nutri-Health Supplements Adds Sleep Wave – A Natural Sleep Support Formula – To Its Premium Product Line

Nutri-Health Supplements Adds Sleep Wave – A Natural Sleep Support Formula – To Its Premium Product Line

Sleep Wave™ – An All-Natural Sleep Support Formula

Cottonwood, AZ (PRWEB) July 26, 2011

Nutri-Health Supplements LLC, formulator and distributor of the best-selling Flora Source Multi-Probiotic, has introduced Sleep Wave – a natural sleep support formula – to its popular line of premium natural health supplements.

“Poor sleep quality isn’t just an inconvenience. It can disrupt relationships, lead to poor performance at work, and can even prove dangerous,” said Michael Lee, product development director for Nutri-Health.

Sleep problems are especially common in older adults. According to the National Sleep Foundation’s 2003 Sleep in America poll, 44% of older persons experience one or more of the nighttime symptoms of insomnia at least a few nights per week or more.

“We found that statistic very startling,” Lee said. “Many of our customers are baby boomers or older, and we’re always on the lookout for ways to address their health concerns.”

Nutri-Health developed Sleep Wave, an all-natural sleep support formula that contains a targeted, synergistic blend of herbs, vitamins and nutrients to deliver relaxation and relief from occasional sleepless nights.

Quality Sleep: The Key to Well-Being

Healthy sleep may well be the key to whole-body well-being. Recent studies have shown it’s not just fatigue that results when we don’t get our needed rest. Improving sleep quality will help to:*

Support memory function
Increase mental alertness
Maintain a healthy weight
Support a healthy heart
Support healthy levels of blood sugar
Maintain healthy blood pressure levels
Support a healthy mood

A Dual-Action Sleep Formula

Sleep Wave is formulated to work in two ways to deliver real results:*

A synergistic blend of valerian, lemon balm and other herbs, as well as essential melatonin, works to promote sleep and improve sleep quality.
GABA, L-theanine, chamomile and passionflower promote relaxation, helping to calm the “brain-spinning” mind chatter that can prevent onset of sleep.

According to Lee, a major factor in Sleep Wave’s effectiveness originates in studies which have shown that certain botanicals that promote sleep are more effective when taken together. And, recent advances in research and technology allow natural substances to provide support for healthy sleep cycles at the lowest (and safest) possible doses.

“Sleep Wave contains clinically studied combinations of herbs for restful sleep including valerian root, lemon balm, hops, passion flower, and chamomile,” Lee said. “Supporting this targeted formula are Vitamins B6 and C, along with melatonin and the relaxing effects of GABA and L-theanine.”
