With its rapid pace and high demands, the modern lifestyle often leads to health being relegated to a secondary concern. Such was the case for Luzia Costa who encountered a pivotal moment after years of navigating a high-pressure career at JPMorgan Chase handling International Commercial Accounts. The combination of a demanding job and the responsibilities of a large family led to mounting health issues, highlighting the insufficiency of a corporate path for a fulfilling, healthy life. This realization sparked a dramatic career shift to become a Certified Health Coach through the Health Coach Institute—a decision that would prove transformative.

Throughout her journey, she faced numerous challenges. Still, she remained steadfast in her belief in a natural approach to health and wellness, underpinned by five essential principles: physical, environmental, emotional, nutritional, and spiritual wellness. These principles are not isolated; they form a complex web where addressing each area leads to overall well-being. For instance, factors such as low energy or poor sleep can impede physical activity, just as a monotonous daily routine can lead to emotional distress. A path towards true wellness is carved by tackling the root causes of these issues rather than just the symptoms.

As Luzia Costa came to understand, the role of a Health Coach is to enlighten and guide clients toward an internal realization that healing starts from within, advancing one small step at a time. There is a deep commitment to empowering clients with the knowledge to make informed nutrition and lifestyle choices, thereby enabling them to reclaim their vitality and quality of life. This empowerment also extends to encouraging clients to take charge of their health decisions, effectively placing the reins of well-being back into their hands

A key tenet of her philosophy is recognizing the uniqueness of each individual. The concept of a universal diet is a myth; what may be nourishing for one might be detrimental to another. This understanding underscores the limitations of fad diets, which often promise quick results but fail to deliver sustainable outcomes. By working intimately with clients to tailor individualized plans based on their specific needs, lifestyles, preferences, and backgrounds, a more effective and personalized strategy for health is developed.

Mark Hyman’s words resonate deeply with this approach, emphasizing that “Lifestyle change and changes in diet work faster, better and more cheaply than any medication and are as effective or more effective than gastric bypass without any side effects or long-term complications.” This philosophy encapsulates the essence of health coaching—facilitating sustainable lifestyle shifts over temporary fixes or severe medical interventions.

The transition from a high-stress corporate job to a role that nurtures and promotes holistic health has been revolutionary for this Health Coach. Through her training at the Health Coach Institute, she did not just find a new career. Still, she discovered a profound truth about integrating physical, environmental, emotional, nutritional, and spiritual health. Focusing on these interconnected aspects guides her clients toward achieving enduring health and vitality. The journey to wellness is incremental, involving manageable steps that collectively lead to a more healthful, joyous existence. It is a testament to the belief that the most profound healing comes from within, a lesson learned through personal experience and shared generously with those looking to transform their lives.
