As healthcare continues to evolve, the role that functional medicine plays is increasingly important. Individuals are feeling empowered to take a more active role in their own health and health coaches are a rapidly growing segment of the industry.
Dr. Sandra Scheinbaum recognized the vital role that coaches play while earning her certification as a functional medicine practitioner. She saw an opportunity to expand the health coaching practice to embrace functional medicine. Dr. Scheinbaum partnered with certified nutritionist and licensed mental health counselor, Elyse Wagner, while working together as mental health professionals in Chicago.
The two women connected over their shared belief in the transformative power of functional medicine and decided to fill the gap by launching the Functional Medicine Coaching Academy to train coaches in a broader set of skills that support a holistic treatment plan. The program is a collaboration with The Institute for Functional Medicine and its core mission is to deliver a lifelong dedication to excellence in functional medicine and health coaching education.
I believe that Functional Medicine coaches are uniquely suited to help people take charge of their health. My mission is to transform healthcare, and through the power of coaches working alongside doctors, we can create a culture of wellness.
