Post 7 – Chris Tuck ‘My Story’ – Lifestyle Choices

I want to help people take control of their health and wellness through their lifestyle choices.

Ultimately mindset, nutrition and fitness.

My whole ethos is holistic treating the person as a whole, looking at what is not working for them, helping and supporting them to change through my C.L.E.A.N. Living Programme.

Ultimately getting a team of people together who can work together to change people’s life’s around. I joined a BNI networking group 6 weeks ago and already meet a Life Coach, a Hypnotherapist and a Chiropractor who treats people holistically. I want to be able to offer people  an alternative system to going into a Psychiatric hospital or going onto medication for a long period of time without dealing with the root cause of their problems.

The change process is a hard one…..as you know I am experiencing this at the moment myself…..but if I walk the walk, I will be able to talk the talk.

I know we are all unique, I know we all have different circumstances however by being true & authentic (a concept explained to me by Dax Moy, Brian Grasso, Carrie Campbell & Kevin Mclernon at FEB this year) I will only improve and grow and get to where I want to be both in my personal and business life.

I have found my true purpose and I believe it is to get ‘My Story’ out there to inspire as many people as possible. Now I know that we all have a story to tell…..well I am not stopping any of you tell your story…..in fact I want to encourage this…..I know that writing ‘My Story’ is going to be one of the BEST things that I have ever done :O) even though there is probably going to be alot of unhappy people out there (talk about this in another post!) once ‘My Story’ becomes a reality. And yes this is starting to bother me.

Going back to my vision of an alternative service; my main aim would be too work on a person’s mindset, their nutrition, hydration & exercise as an alternative to medication and them taking control of their lives again.

By using services such as:

  • Hypnotherapy
  • Counselling
  • CBT
  • Psychotherapy
  • Massage
  • Fitness – Mind & Body, Walking
  • Cookery & Nutrition classes

I left the Priory (private psychiatric hospital) 2 months ago as mentioned before because my vision no longer fitted their business model. It is all about the numbers, not about providing the care that the patient actually needs; to feel better for the long term…..

The patients were given medication, CBT, psychotherapy and other groups but no attention was given to their nutrition or their fitness. I feel that this is key along with the mindset treatment in getting the patient to a healthier and happier life.

I understand that providing 1:1 therapy is costly but so many patients needed this but could not have it because their insurance only covered group therapy.

However these patients were the lucky ones what about all those people who do not have insurance or the money to go to a private psychiatric hospital….the already strained NHS has to pick up these patients and well the care is alot to be desired! so many patients came from the NHS Psychiatric hospital with many unpleasant stories.

Of course my service is going to cost and again I am being hypocritical?……..but I want to show the private sector that they can improve their patients recovery by treating their patients holistically and then role out segments of this programme to the NHS.

In the long term this will save the NHS untold amounts of money.

What do you think?
