Changing Lives Series – Roger

Small lifestyle adjustments can make big changes to your overall health and wellbeing. HSS has developed an innovative coaching program aimed at preventing further health deterioration through targeting individual risk factors and providing support and education to help clients self-manage their health and wellbeing. HSS’s Health Coaching provides this coaching over the phone at a time that is convenient to you.

For Roger, Osteoarthritis, bowel issues and limited engagement in physical activities stood in the way to a healthier lifestyle. He had limited knowledge of his medical conditions and how to get his weight under control.

Taking part in HSS Health Coaching, Roger was placed onto the Nutrition and Lifestyle program to help get his weight down to a healthier level and to also manage his Osteoarthritis. Over the course of the program HSS helped control Roger’s food intake and energy levels to facilitate his weight loss goals.

He was advised to cease the excessive supplementation of magnesium and increased fibre intake which helped resolve his bowel issues and Roger also spoke to a pain specialist nurse at HSS who provided him with a pain toolkit and other pain management strategies for his osteoarthritis.

At the end of the program Roger had lost 5kg and experienced significant pain relief with his Osteoarthritis. His need to see his doctor reduced dramatically and he now feels confident he can manage his weight loss on his own.

Taking part in HSS Health Coaching services can increase you knowledge in the health issues you face, increase you knowledge about you own body and will allow you to recognise you limits then make appropriate plans to start you on you health improvement journey.
