A comprehensive study demonstrates that intensive, individualized health coaching and medical guidance could significantly improve disease-based biomarkers and dramatically improve health.
Diet, lifestyle, and specific health behaviors interact in various ways and can create health or disease. Note the following fast facts about the state of disease and disease care:
One comprehensive study demonstrated that intensive, individualized health coaching and medical guidance could significantly improve disease-based biomarkers and dramatically improve health.
In the study, personalized health plans were developed for 70 individuals as part of a nine-month disease reversal and prevention program. The study looked at individual health parameters as well as serum biomarkers known to reflect the presence and progression of chronic disease.
Many of the biomarker improvements observed were highly statistically significant in the nine-month study period:
Chronic Disease Assessment risk score and grade, Chronic Disease Temperature score, and individual biomarker values before and after the health revival program (HRP)
CDT is the Chronic Disease Temperature biomarker score as a relative value with 98.6 considered optimal and elevated values indicating chronic risk; HbA1C is expressed as a %; Glucose is expressed as mg/dL; NLR is the neutrophil to lymphocyte ratio; hs-CRP is high sensitivity C-reactive protein or C-reactive protein, cardiac expressed as mg/L; insulin is expressed as uIU/mL; HDL is expressed as mg/dL; triglycerides are expressed as mg/dL; vitamin D is expressed as ng/mL; uric acid is expressed as mg/dL; WBC is the white blood cell count expressed as cells/uL; RDW is the red blood cell distribution width expresses as a %; Ab neutrophils are neutrophils (absolute) expressed as cells/uL; ESR is the sedimentation rate-Westergren expressed in mm/hr; fibrinogen is fibrinogen activity expressed as mg/dL; homocysteine is expressed as umol/L; and AIP is the Atherogenic Index of Plasma expressed as the log(Triglycerides/HDL)
Optimal health and wellness are achievable with the right motivation, guidance, and perseverance... and health coaching and personalized lifestyle intervention can play a major role in one's journey to optimal!
