Health & Wellness
The Duke Integrative Medicine Center at Duke University uses a Wheel of Health to show their whole life paradigm for maximizing health & wellness. This Wheel of Health visual paradigm is the foundation of Pamela's professional work with clients.
Health and wellness coaching (HWC) champions healthy behavior change as a means of averting or mitigating chronic lifestyle-related diseases.

“People tend to think of breakthroughs in medicine as a new drug, a laser, or a high-tech surgical procedure. They often have a hard time believing that the simple choices that we make in our lifestyle: what we eat, how we respond to stress, whether or not we smoke cigarettes, how much exercise we get, and the quality of our relationships and support can be as powerful as drugs and surgery. But they often are.”

60-90% of physician visits are related to stress. Transform your personal life, your health, and your work with mindfulness training.
"Mindfulness arises as one pays attention - on purpose - in an allowing and accepting way to inner and outer experience unfolding in the present moment. The capacity to be mindful lies in all human beings."
Jeff Brantley, M.D.

"Lifestyle medicine treats the root cause of chronic disease, not just the symptoms. It reflects the reality of what a huge body of scientific evidence has taught us: Food is powerful medicine! Exercise is powerful medicine! Mind-body health is powerful medicine! And these medicines are free or inexpensive and with only positive side-effects!"
- David Ferriss, MD, MPH
Lifestyle Medicine involves the use of evidence-based lifestyle therapeutic approaches, such as a predominantly whole food, plant-based diet, regular physical activity, adequate sleep, stress management, avoidance of risky substance use, and other non-drug modalities, to prevent, treat, and, oftentimes, reverse the lifestyle-related, chronic disease that's all too prevalent."
