Gerald J. Joseph International, LLC

As a Health Scientist, I develop cloud-based TeleHealth nutrition and exercise programs that focus on weight-loss, neurogenesis, preventing chronic disease syndromes through health education, nutrition counseling, exercise science and medicinal plant compounds.

HealthCoach empowers both doctors and patients/clients to improve treatment outcomes by safety engaging patients/clients in health/behavior change supported by diet, organic whole-food nutraceuticals and walking. HealthCoach communicates with the patient/client on a daily basis, and the patient’s/client’s physician reviews the results every 90 days. HealthCoach supports, mentors and tracks patients/clients as a wellness authority, helping clients feel their best through organic foods, movement and lifestyle changes, tailoring individualized and corporate wellness programs to improve health outcomes.

Rancho Santa Fe Medical Center

HealthCoach development its evidence-based diet, whole food organic nutraceutical and exercise program after years of research, observation and working with large pools of patients/clients working within the Rancho Santa Fe Medical Center where I was Director of Sports Medicine & Nutrition for Fitness by Design, LLC, located in Rancho Santa Fe California.

HealthCoach addresses chronic disease, cognitive loss and ASD through the lenses of malnutrition and lack of physical inactivity as the key causations of heart disease, type II diabetes, obesity,  and disease syndromes such as cognitive loss – Dementia and Alzheimer’s disease.

Malnutrition 

Malnutrition can be defined as the insufficient, excessive or an imbalanced consumption of macro/micro nutrients which can manifest in chronic disease disorders depending on which nutrients that are lacking or consumed in excess.

Physical Inactivity 

Physical inactivity is a term used to identify people who do not get the recommended level of regular physical activity. A Report by the Surgeon General on Physical Activity and Health recommended the minimum level of physical activity required to achieve health benefits was a daily expenditure of 150 kilocalories in moderate or vigorous activities. (40 minute walk)

HealthCoach recommendations are evidence-based and consistent with guidelines established by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, American College of Sports Medicine and supposed by NCBI National Center for Biotechnology Information.

HealthCoach objective is to help steer people away from the Western American Diet which has facilitated an “evolutionary clash and or discordance,” which has been detrimental to human health since the end of the Paleolithic era and the beginning of the Neolithic era with the introduction of coral grain agriculture and diet. 

Genome  

Simple put, our ancient genome has not had the time to adapt with the nutritional qualities of recently introduced foods such as refined grains, refined sugar, dairy, trans-fats, synthetic chemicals and processed  foods which includes altered animal proteins which may underlie many of the chronic diseases and cognitive loss facing our global civilizations where the Western American Diet has been introduced.

By returning to a simpler ancestral hunter-gatherer diet, one high in plant-based foods, moderate marine proteins, low in grains, meat, fowl, and dairy proteins, by increasing physical activity such as walking, we can reduce weight and prevent most if not all manmade chronic disease syndromes.

HEALTHCOACH

In the end, millions of years of evolution did not prepare us for genetically modified agriculture, fast foods, and the ready availability of empty calories that do more damage to human beings than anyone could imagine.

More and more science is discovering that the human biome, the billions and billions of bacteria that inhabit our digestive system, affects well-being, allergies, disease progression, intellectual capability, productivity – pretty much every aspect of life.

Introducing foods that did not exist as we developed our biological selves (genome) into this complex environment has resulted in a host of unintended consequences – most of them negative called “chronic disease syndromes.”

HealthCoach is an evidence-based highly effective nutrition, exercise and lifestyle program which uses digital Telehealth technology to track, measure, communicate with physicians, and interact with participants via smart phone and wearable technology to improve health rapidly.

HealthCoach communications and data are HIPAA complaint and data is used to quantify results.
