Health Coaching is Transformational and Life Changes Can Happen for You
Face it, creating and sustaining healthy behaviors takes dedication not only to see improvements but also to keep going forward when obstacles show up. For many of us, our busy and full lives distract us from being able to stay on top of the health priorities in our lives such as diet, stress, fitness and balance. It is also been shown that relatively few people are able to make and sustain significant life changes unless they're part of a structured program that includes both education and support.
Taking that first step to break an old habit and replace it with a new healthy behavior can be challenging, but with anything new, there is always an important first-step. You must do this for yourself because the prize at the end is getting the life you really want.
Using our strategic and practical wellness approach, our health coaching programs support you to:
- Realistically assess where you are in your life (body, mind, and spirit)
- Look at the whole picture and not just one part
- Set realistic goals in weeks/months not days – lasting change takes time
- See where you want to go …. and get there, step by step
Health coaching also makes sense for the health and wellness of any organization. It can create comprehensive wellness strategies to improve employee health, reduce health-related costs, improve productivity, and create healthy lifestyles, is by far the fastest growing area of the health and wellness movement. Sixty-seven percent of American companies now either have or plan to implement health coaching or prevention programs to boost worker health, according to a survey of 450 major American corporations conducted by Hewitt Associates (2008). Health coaching is an effective and economical way to improve your companies overall wellness profile by providing a broad range of activities that can not only address the greatest health risks but also help healthy individuals stay that way.
If you are ready to re-engineer your life, let us show you how.
Corporate Wellness Programs
A wellness program in the corporate environment can have a broad vision, from onsite fitness centers to simple health promotion newsletters. It may focus on reducing health risks while increasing physical activity or it may be as simple as promoting healthier lifestyles through a variety of programs.
Wellness programs that are employee-centric will encourage a healthy life-style and set the stage for a healthy and more productive work environment. Educating employees about health promoting activities and services is one of the best ways to promote employee wellness. Offering a variety of programs that range from diet and nutrition to stress reduction and work-life balance is key to any successful corporate wellness initiative.
Corporate Wellness Programs are a win-win not only for employees, but employers can also benefit greatly. Some of these benefits include: reduced healthcare cost, reduced absenteeism, decreased rates of illness, better morale and increased productivity. In the long run, this is beneficial to everyone in the company.
Let the professionals at Advesta Health help you design your own Corporate Wellness Program including a Wellness Program Plan that will assist your company in starting, maintaining, and evaluating your own wellness program.

Bring back health and vitality with our 4 life-changing programs in just 90 days. Using our strategic and practical wellness approach, our Restore In 4 program helps you transform your life by addressing these key areas:
- Body – cleanse, clear, reset, and rejuvenate
- Mind – visualization, goal setting, focus, and letting go
- Spirit – meditation, prayer, forgiveness, gratefulness, and oneness
- Energy – vitality, balance, movement and flow
When addressing your health, you have to address ALL of who you are, not just a single part. You can’t just fix your digestive issues without addressing healthy eating and lifestyle habits in just the same manner a high level of vitality and energy can’t be maintained unless your hormones, stress and other body systems are in balance. More importantly, your body will suffer if the mind is over-controlling, imposing self-will, or in denial for one reason or another. With the Restore-In-4 program, we give you the information, tools, and support to connect-the-dots in your life that lead to sustainable health and happiness. Our proven strategy is: Reveal, Heal, Restore, Thrive.
Restore in 4 is a 90-day self-directed and community-supported wellness program offered 4 times a year. The program is facilitated by our world-class Advesta Health coaching team and supported by our 24/7 HealthyLiving online wellness community. But it’s the participants that call the shots and go “all-in” to achieve their healthy goals. All participants go through the program together and follow our simple and structured 12-week process. Each week is filled with fun and healthy things to support the body-mind-spirit-energy model to bring balance to each participant’s transformational journey. Participants set their own pace during the program in order to accomplish weekly goals; they can be socially interactive within the group or focused more inwardly on their own growth process.
We start with healing and restoring the body because in the matrix of health, it is the central most-dense core, whereby all the other systems interconnect. Within the body systems we work from the inside out starting with the most fundamental unit, the cell, and then addressing systems that like the Gut, Liver, Kidneys, which help nourish, detox and support. Finally we bring on line the more subtle systems like the mental, emotional, spiritual and energetic flows. When these systems fire up correctly and in alignment, the core awakens with a new found sense of healthy and vitality. This is what we call transformational healing.
