At Epidemic Answers, we know that working with an integrative health coach can be an invaluable part of the healing and recovery process for many families. Because so many of our children’s chronic conditions can be improved through diet and lifestyle interventions, something that is squarely in the wheelhouse of integrative health coaches, we are passionate and enthusiastic about connecting families to health coaches. We also know that children are different and their developmental needs require careful consideration. Today, few health coach training programs include curriculum that specifically addresses the needs of families with children affected by the “new childhood epidemics.” Epidemic Answers understands the special needs of these families and we aim to help health coaches provide the best support for these families through our online training course.
