What is the concept of personal medicine, and why is it important that Bridges recovery coaches are Certified Personal Medicine Coaches. Personal medicine comes from within. It’s not medication that you take, it’s the attitude and actions you do that make you feel good. This means with personal medicine there are endless options of pathways forward: they are prescribed by and personal to you. For some, this may be as simple as going for a daily run, for others, it might be sipping your morning cup of coffee, meditation or writing a novel. Whatever personal medicine is for you, what is important is the positive feeling you get while you’re doing it. What does it mean to be a Certified Personal Medicine Coach? Not everyone can be a Certified Personal Medicine Coach.
