The 9 Health Essentials

NIHA’s Health Essentials Coaching Program provides diet and lifestyle tools to support you on your way to optimal health. We find that people really want to implement good,  healthy habits but they need a little guidance and a plan – this is where our Health Essentials Coaching Program can help.

A health coach helps put you in charge of your lifestyle and the choices you make

What you do at home is the most important part of any holistic therapeutic and program. Your body, given the right support, has the ability to heal itself.

Let’s be honest, we live in an environment that is increasingly unhealthy, with pesticides in our food, polluted water, unsafe air and harmful exposure to electronic devices. Adopting a healthier lifestyle is essential to feel better, maintain healthy weight and prevent or recover from illness and disease.

Healthy Living Resources in the Washington DC, Maryland and Virginia metro area which you may find helpful in your quest for locally sourced food (check out the restaurant guide!), cleaner living, less toxic products and accurate information.
