What are Mismatch Diseases?
According to Professor Daniel Lieberman of Harvard University, mismatch diseases are caused by the discrepancy between our contemporary lifestyles and the original hunter-gatherer purposes for which the human body evolved.
Examples include the rise of Type 2 diabetes and cardiovascular disease.
Some of the main culprits are lack of movement, excess sugar in the diet, poor sleep and stress.
We could avoid most of them by making different lifestyle choices. However knowing what to do, how and when can be difficult for busy people.
Knowing how to make better lifestyle choices is where a qualified and experienced health coach can be invaluable and life-changing. Health coaching is the fastest-growing field in allied healthcare and for good reasons, given the challenges we face in modern society.
