How Is Primal Health Coaching Unique?

Health coaching is indeed a high demand, high impact profession given the prevalence of preventable diseases and growing public attention to the lifestyle factors that can fend off these conditions. That said, a health coaching program is only as effective as its grounding philosophy.

Health coaching models that emphasize trend over tried-and-true practices might seem edgy in their marketing campaigns, but they’re at best selling an unverified experiment to their clients. Those that follow conventional wisdom risk missing the mark by offering their clients controverted ideas that reflect misguided and outdated talking points rather than sound physiological theory and current research conclusions. Fortunately, there’s another, well-established and proven alternative….

Why the Primal Health model?

As a health coach, you’re in the business to change lives. You find purpose and fulfillment in helping others reclaim their health, experience new vitality, and attain goals they never thought possible. Your commitment centers on offering the best scientific knowledge and motivational expertise possible to your clients to allow them unprecedented success and sustainable results. To do this, you want to root your coaching process in the most effective, verified, and practical methodology. Furthermore, you want your base principles to feel simple and intuitive to your clients.

The Primal Health model delivers on exactly these visions. Rather than a rigid plan, it’s a flexible framework built around key lifestyle fundamentals that mimic the choices of our evolutionary hominid ancestors. Our hunter-gatherer forebears for tens of thousands of years evolved under selection pressures that dictated our genetic recipe today and the residual physiological expectations our bodies have for optimum functioning. The key to health is to invest in essential evolutionary behaviors.

Primal Health Coaching is the only ancestral wellness coaching program available. As such, it’s the singular coaching certification founded in scientifically validated ancestral health principles. The context for this model, the acclaimed Primal Blueprint, supports maximum vitality and well-being through the timeless integration of strategies across a broad spectrum of lifestyle dimensions, including nutrition, fitness, sleep, stress management, sun, play, and enrichment.

The goal is straightforward even while the biological mechanisms are complex: normalize hormonal responses by adapting evolutionary patterns for modern day lifestyles and effecting desirable change in gene expression patterns toward optimum functioning. To these ends, the Primal Health model supports our innate genetic blueprint with real-food, low-carb eating, inspired movement and play, effective stress-reduction, and meaningful balance in all aspects of life. The result is a reasonable plan that leaves plenty of room for individual design and preference.

To date, the Primal Blueprint model has served millions of “regular” people in addition to thousands of health care and wellness practitioners around the globe who have seen first-hand its successful results in themselves and in their clients.

The Primal-paleo approach is without a doubt one of the fastest-growing health movements, and even as interest grows, the supply of ancestral-minded health care providers is not yet keeping pace. It’s a primary reason this program was developed—to meet growing demand by equipping wellness professionals with an in-depth guide for evolutionary health they can apply in their health care or coaching practices.

The merit of the Primal foundation, however, isn’t dependent on web inquiries or public attention. Regardless of whether a client has even heard of ancestral health, you can be confident that the Primal Health model will offer you the best design for helping him/her turn goals into reachable successes.

What about the specific benefits of the Primal Health Coaching Program itself?

Adherents describe the blueprint as an intuitive, comprehensive and yet fully customizable guide they can easily initiate and realistically maintain as an ongoing lifestyle template. As a coach, you’ll enjoy the creative opportunity to counsel clients through their own personalization process, helping them learn to adapt the blueprint guidelines to their specific needs and preferences. To this end, you’ll also appreciate the vast and comprehensive library of written, online, podcast and video resources accessible to you and your clients through the Mark’s Daily Apple blog  (MDA) and Primal Blueprint Publishing.

In addition to designing and leading the Primal Health Coach certification program, Mark Sisson founded Primal Nutrition, Inc. (now Primal Blueprint, Inc.) and its award-winning Mark’s Daily Apple blog more than ten years ago to promote health education and offer state-of-the art supplementation to address the challenges of living well in the modern world. Today, Mark’s blog reaches more than 2,000,000 readers a month, and his business continues to exponentially expand through more than twenty publications and new endeavors such as the Primal Kitchen line of food products.

As a result, you’ll be able to confidently direct your clients to a trusted line of premium supplement offerings as well as Primally aligned cookbooks, meal plans, events, and products to support their journeys. You’ll also be able to make bulk purchases of supplements and other product offerings at wholesale prices for resale to your clients.

In all, you won’t just be founding your coaching practice in a scientifically validated, evolutionarily grounded methodology. You’ll be aligning your business with over a decade’s worth of supportive resources that are all fully available to you to lend coherence, credence and profit to your personal coaching venture.

All told, the Primal Health Coaching experience will take you far beyond any conventional coaching model. You’ll center and enrich your professional approach within the cohesive wisdom of ancestral health and the ongoing educational resources offered by this program and Mark’s Daily Apple.

As a result, you’ll be perfectly positioned to facilitate your clients’ incredible transformations to maximum health and vitality. You’ll have the scientific understanding and ongoing support to help your clients extract the most satisfaction and fulfillment by making the right changes to move their goals and visions forward. As part of the ancestral health movement, the Primal Blueprint nutrition, fitness and lifestyle program has transformed the lives of hundreds of thousands of people and counting. With you as a professional expert and advocate, you’ll help many others experience their fullest potential and a thriving life.
