Lifestyle Prescriptions® Health Coaching – Research

Over the last years, Lifestyle Prescriptions University has started to demonstrate the efficacy of root-cause based health coaching.

Lifestyle Prescriptions® Health Coaches use a 10-Step Root-Cause Analysis Process to elicit the specific stressors, emotions, beliefs & lifestyle habits affecting symptoms followed by root-cause based health coaching techniques & protocols to help clients heal and thrive.

Here’s a list of project:

    • Lifestyle Prescriptions® University Specialists and Faculty Members are working on demonstrating and verifying that specific stressors & emotions are affect specific organ tissue symptoms based on the Art and Science of Self-Healing, the Organ-Mind-Brain Connection and the Major Points and Phases of Self-Healing
      • Aisling Killoran, Lifestyle Prescriptions® Infertility Health Coach Specialist – The Effect Of Emotions and Stress On Fertility
        Aisling demonstrated that Lifestyle Prescriptions® Root-Cause Analysis & Health Coaching has a statistically significant improvement in health outcomes. In her study, out of the six case studies, four women who were medically diagnosed with unexplained infertility and were trying to become pregnant for over two years, are now pregnant and two have yet to become pregnant.
      • Jane Oelke, ND, PhD, LPHCS – Beliefs Affecting Chronic Pain Responses 
        This study was created for the objectives to study belief patterns and their relationship to the location of chronic pain. Thought-provoking associations between the top two belief patterns, the level of pain, and the symptoms that make it worse were found. The beliefs that “I am not strong enough” and “I have too many responsibilities.” correlate to the ability to control situations and the ability to deal with chronic pain.
      • John Rhodes, Lifestyle Prescriptions® Asthma Health Coach Specialist
        In a small research study John could show the following results using Lifestyle Prescriptions® Root-Cause Analysis & Self-Healing Protocols:
         40% of participants were able to stop using asthma medication altogether (confirmed by their GP).
         80% of participants had Final Peak Flow measurements corroborating their breathing improvement.
    • Empirical evidence of Lifestyle Prescriptions® Health Coaching practitioners demonstrated and documented with over 1,000 client cases
    • Establishing evidence-inspired reference materials based on empirical data like the Organ-Mind-Brain Connection Charts and the searchable online directory listing 150+ organ tissue with 2,000+ symptoms

The science is compelling.

The challenge is to train health professionals to use Lifestyle Medicine in their practice … and that’s exactly what Lifestyle Prescriptions University is focused on.

Clinton, Eastwood and the Father of Lifestyle Medicine

When I met Dean Ornish for the first time, he was honored at our foundation’s fundraising event together with Eckhart Tolle and Christiane Northrup MD for his achievements in medicine.

Around that time I remember receiving a letter from Clint Eastwood with a donation and a note reflecting how grateful he was for Dr. Ornish’s guidance. He said: “I’ve been following Dr. Dean Ornish’s program for more than a decade, and I feel younger now than I did ten years ago. Dr. Ornish’s style of eating and living is always delicious and never boring.”

A few years later I interviewed Dean Ornish for the film TITANS OF YOGA. He showed my pictures from his last meeting with the Clinton’s and how Bill Clinton was equally grateful because he lost 20-30 pound and improved overall vitality and wellness drastically by following Dean’s proven diet and lifestyle changes.

Why am I mentioning this?

Well, Dean Ornish is considered by many experts as the “father” of Lifestyle Medicine and that is why he the lead expert featured in my new inspirational short-film ‘Lifestyle Medicine. His ground-breaking 37 years of research has scientifically proven that integrative and comprehensive lifestyle changes can:

  • improve chronic conditions such as diabetes, heart disease, and prostate cancer
  • change gene expression, turning on health-promoting genes and turning off disease-promoting genes
  • lengthen telomeres (the ends of chromosomes) and in turn begins to reverse aging on a cellular level

Since 2011, Medicare has been covering Dr. Dean Ornish’s Program for Reversing Heart Disease® under a new benefit category, ‘Intensive Cardiac Rehabilitation’ and thousands of patients benefited already.

In Dr. Ornish’s program includes 4 components:

  • Diet (mostly plant-based diet)
  • Fitness (yoga, walking or other moderate type of exercise)
  • Stress Management (yoga and mindfulness)
  • Social Support (increase connection and love)

It is clear now that what we eat, how we exercise, how we deal with stress and how much love and support we feel in our life is affecting our health. Lifestyle Medicine is addressing exactly these issues. By treating the root-cause and making comprehensive lifestyle modifications we can not only stop most chronic health issues but even reverse them.

Suddenly, improve our health, vitality and living longer and better is within our reach.
