Luke Coutinho, Chief Programme Mentor

Luke Coutinho is a Holistic Lifestyle Coach and practices in the field of Integrative Lifestyle Medicine and Life Coaching. In his practice, he believes that while doctors do what they have to do, the medicine he and his team use is Lifestyle. He says, “Every human is individual and unique in their own way and must be assessed, diagnosed and treated as a unique individual. What works for one doesn’t have to work for another. Each person will need a completely personalised and individualised approach to nutrition, movement, sleep hygiene, stress and other factors. Only then can we expect some amount of healing.

His mission and vision is backed by a solid team of registered dietitians, certified nutritionists, experienced lifestyle coaches and skilled allopathic medical practitioners – doctors who believe in lifestyle medicine and help clients with a 360-degree approach, combining medicine and lifestyle to improve their condition.
