Holistic Health CoachingWith over 9 years of practical experience, Dr. Ilana Sowter found that Acupuncture and Chinese Herbs were not always enough to treat her patients effectively. With exploring the depths of some of her patients’ lives and thinking patters she soon discovered that many had issues. Life circumstances or thinking patterns that once changed; their health problems remarkably improved. This is where coaching is key; if the true cause of the disease is not treated then the disease will not be cured. More about coaching.
