DETROIT, MI, USA, July 14, 2022 /EINPresswire.com/ — Terra Health Coaching, a digital coaching platform focused on lifestyle medicine, is working with physicians across the country to provide a frontline defense against chronic diseases for their patients. Because nutrition is so critically important in lifestyle medicine, Terra chose Diet ID’s dietary assessment and goal setting platform as its nutritional component. This partnership allows coaches to help their mentees approach nutrition in a fast, simple and scalable way.
According to John Dieser, co-founder of Terra Health, “The simplicity of Diet ID™ gives our customers the ability to evaluate their diet around pictures, not a bunch of confusing words. Then, in the background , our Lifestyle Medicine Coaches have another level of expert nutrition data points to provide their clients with the highest quality of care around what they put into their bodies.
Each patient will complete a Diet ID assessment before and after their 3-month lifestyle medicine coaching program. This enables a reliable measurement of diet quality, an early indicator of downstream biometric improvement, such as weight change. This valuable data is used to illustrate the effectiveness and success of the program. Michael Laing, the other co-founder of Terra Health, says, “Lifestyle medicine is very effective in improving chronic disease and reducing costs. As the data continues to grow in these types of interventions, adoption will follow and health care may 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 it fits perfectly.
Lifestyle medicine providers often face challenges related to nutritional literacy within their populations, yet they often lack the resources to address nutrition in a sustainable and engaging way. “If we’re going to make a difference, we need to make it simpler to get healthier – Diet ID makes nutrition simple for our customers while giving our healthcare professionals another tool with expert nutritional data,” says John.
