New partnership with Terra Health Coaching enhances physicians’ delivery of lifestyle medicine support.
DETROIT, MI, UNITED STATES, July 14, 2022 /EINPresswire.com/ — Terra Health Coaching, a digital coaching platform focusing on lifestyle medicine, collaborates with physicians all over the country to give them a first line of defense against chronic illness for their patients. As nutrition is critically important in lifestyle medicine, Terra has chosen Diet ID’s dietary assessment and goal setting platform as its nutrition component. This partnership enables coaches to help their mentees tackle nutrition in a quick, simple, and scalable way.
According to John Dieser, Terra Health co-founder, “The simplicity of Diet ID™ gives our clients the ability to assess their diets around pictures and not a bunch of confusing words. Then, on the back end, our lifestyle medicine coaches have another level of expert nutrition data points to give their clients the highest quality of care around what they are putting in their bodies.”
Every patient will complete a Diet ID assessment before and after their 3-month Lifestyle Medicine Coaching Program. This allows reliable measurement of diet quality, an early indicator of downstream biometric improvement, such as change in weight. These valuable data are used to illustrate the efficacy and success of the program. Michael Laing, Terra Health’s other co-founder, says, “Lifestyle medicine is highly effective in improving chronic conditions and lowering costs. As data continue to grow in these types of interventions, adoption will follow and healthcare might actually begin to change.”
According to David L. Katz, founder and CEO of Diet ID, “We are thrilled and honored to partner with Terra Health to enhance their lifestyle medicine program. Nutrition is arguably the most important pillar of lifestyle medicine, and this is a perfect fit.”
Lifestyle medicine providers are often faced with challenges around nutrition literacy among their populations, yet they often lack the resources required to address nutrition in a sustainable, engaging way. “If we want to turn things around, we need to simplify how to get healthier—Diet ID simplifies the nutrition piece for our clients while giving our health professionals another tool with expert nutritional data,” says John.
