HealthCoach App

HealthCoach App

The HealthCoach App is a biometric tracking and HIPAA-compliant communication tool, utilized by a medical doctor, mental health expert and health coach. The App manages patient/client biomarker data (steps, weight, BMI, blood pressure, continuous blood glucose, heart rate and sleep) and, if desired, can be scaled to manage multiple health coaches, social workers and multiple medical practices/businesses. A properly certified health coach or social worker can work with more than one hundred patients/clients improving health outcomes including mental health and brain wellness.

HealthCoach Dashboard

The HealthCoach App includes a Dashboard which allows a doctor, health coach and social worker to manage and track biometric progress (steps, sleep, blood sugar, heart rate, weight, BMI, blood pressure), archives blood chemistry and heavy metal test results and allows for HIPAA-compliant text messaging communication from the Dashboard and mobile App screen.

 

HealthCoach App

The HealthCoach App incorporates medical, exercise and nutrition intake forms, designed to aid the doctor, health coach, social worker archive client/patient health data. This online tool is designed to work synergistically with a biometric tracking app and the blood chemistry and heavy metal tests to quantify lifestyle change.

Medical Exercise Nutrition Intakes

HealthCoach gives your practice/business everything needed to easily send and receive HIPAA compliant health intake forms online. Send patients/clients your forms to fill out on their phone, tablet, or computer. Patients/clients securely sign and submit completed intake forms directly to their account. Track patient/client progress, send automated reminders and receive completed online form submissions before appointment.

Malnutrition can be defined as insufficient, excessive, or imbalanced consumption of nutrients. Any type of long term malnutrition will knock off the body’s natural metabolic homeostasis balance that can then lead to the development of life threatening diseases. Physical Activity is also critical in the development of these diseases.

HealthCoach Biomarkers

HealthCoach utilizes blood chemistry diagnostic tests and heavy metal tests to assess biological risk factors which are fundamental to your physiology and mental health. These tests are biomarkers which play a critical role in improving the relationship between measurable biological processes and clinical outcomes which is vital to expanding our arsenal of the prevention and treatment for all diseases, and for deepening our understanding of normal, healthy physiology.

Nutrition Transition Protocols

So, what exactly is “The Transition”? The Transition is a period of time in which your body and mind fully acclimate to new nutritional, physical activity, sleep and mental health and brain wellness protocols, set up by your personal team (doctor, social worker and health coach).

The total transition time is often unique to the individual. Some important factors to consider when estimating total transition time include the individual’s starting weight, BMI, age, stress levels, active health issues, biomarkers, medications, insulin sensitivity, microbial microbiome diversity and mental health and brain wellness.

The HealthCoach protocols are evidence-based and supported by clinical studies located in THE SCIENCE section of the HealthCoach website.

Video Library

HealthCoach features a video library containing health education (Type 2 diabetes, intermittent fasting, heart health, etc.) and physical activity content (exercises for back, shoulder, knee, etc.). In healthcare, it is more important than ever to have meaningful health education content. According to research, 72% of internet users looked online for health education content in the last year.

Health Education Video Library

In a recent published study in Patient Education and Counseling analyzed studies of video-assisted patient education and how effective it is in modifying behavior. The authors found that while video overall can be a highly effective form of patient education, it’s really the method of presentation that can make the difference between an engaged patient and a tuned out one.

The Gut-Brain Connection

Diet, physical activity, sleep and other aspects of our daily interaction with the environment have the potential to alter our brain and gut health. Scientists call this little brain-gut axis the enteric nervous system (ENS). And it’s not so little. The ENS is two thin layers of more than 100 million nerve cells lining your gastrointestinal tract from esophagus to rectum.

Its main role is controlling digestion, from swallowing to the release of enzymes that break down food to the control of blood flow that helps with nutrient absorption to elimination,

This raises the exciting possibility that dietary manipulations are a viable strategy for enhancing cognitive abilities and protecting the brain from damage, promoting repair and counteracting the effects of aging and cognitive impairment to improve mental health and brain wellness.

Heart Health

HealthCoach recognizes that for the last 600 generations, our ancestors were hunter-gatherers-foragers. While technology has created enormous change in a few centuries, biology has not kept pace.

Heart disease is a primary example of the conflict between human biological construction and life in our modern era. Scientists are increasingly becoming aware of the importance of the microbiome in heart health. Scientists have fresh evidence of just how unhealthy the Western diet and lifestyle can be.

In a new report, researchers studied an indigenous group of hunter-gatherers-foragers, the Tsimané, who live in Bolivia, and found that their risk for coronary atherosclerosis, hardening of the arteries, is five times less common compared to adults living in the United States.

Diabetes Prevention

Between 1980 and 2020, the number of people living with diabetes across the world nearly quadrupled from about 108 million to 422 million. As many as 90% of these individuals have Type 2 diabetes.

The fight against this chronic disease persists, with new research explaining not only what triggers Type 2 diabetes, but also how to prevent, manage and even reverse it.

The HealthCoach diabetes prevention protocols are evidence-based and supported by clinical studies located in THE SCIENCE section of the HealthCoach website.

Obesity

In 2019, an estimated 38.2 million children under the age of 5 years were overweight or obese. Once considered a high-income country problem, overweight and obesity are now on the rise in low- and middle-income countries, particularly in urban settings. I

Over 340 million children and adolescents aged 5-19 were overweight or obese in 2016.

A half-century ago, about 1 in 100 American adults were severely obese. Now it’s 10 times more common.

The obesity rate has risen about 40% in the last two decades.

Physical Activity Video Library

Physical inactivity is an actual cause of over 35 chronic diseases/conditions. Some of these are major chronic conditions, for example, insulin resistance leading to Type 2 diabetes, aging leading to Alzheimer’s disease and other diseases, or high cardiovascular risk factors, leading to coronary artery disease. Overwhelming evidence from epidemiological studies proves that the physically inactive group has increased prevalence, that often range from 30 to 50%, for major causes of death, including cardiovascular disease, Type 2 diabetes, and Alzheimer’s disease. Consequently, evidence supports the notion that physical inactivity is an actual cause of both shorter lifespan and early mortality.

Mental Health

Diet, physical activity, sleep and other aspects of our daily interaction with the environment have the potential to alter our brain health and mental function.

Emerging research on the pediatric microbiome implicates the importance of the microbiome on the development of the immune system, nervous system, and growth. The gut microbiome influences immunological, endocrine, and neural pathways and plays an important role in infant development. 

Patients with various psychiatric disorders including depression, bipolar disorder, schizophrenia, and autism spectrum disorder have been shown to have significant differences in the composition of their gut microbiome. Enhancing beneficial bacteria in the gut and reducing GI Inflammation can improve mental health.

Gut Microbiome Health

The human microbiome is composed of bacteria, archaea, viruses and eukaryotic microbes that reside in and on our bodies. These microbes have tremendous potential to impact our physiology, our resistance to disease and mental health.

They contribute metabolic functions, protect against pathogens, educate the immune system, and through these basic functions, affect directly or indirectly most of our physiologic and mental functions.

The Science

There has been a dramatic shift in the leading causes of death in the US in the past 100 years.

Whereas infectious diseases were the primary cause of death in the early 20th century, cardiovascular disease and cancer have now assumed dominance in mortality.

Metabolic diseases such  as obesity, diabetes, cardiovascular diseases, and even neurodegenerative diseases such as Alzheimer’s and have common factors. Four key factors that are facilitating the rise and development of chronic metabolic diseases and mental health issues in Americans are – malnutrition, lack of physical activity, how well you sleep and the lack of diversity in healthy gut microbes leading to gut dysbiosis.
