Wellness Risk is how closely a person lives their life according to the science of multi-dimensional Five Pillar Wellness. 

Wellness Risk indicates a ‘heading’ for healthcare troubles.

Principles of Five Pillar Wellness Risk

Previous Article:   That Difficult Case

  • Measuring wellness risk is not measuring disease risk. Disease risk is taken care of by the medical and epidemiology societies. We understand now that just because there are no obvious signs or symptoms of disease, this does not mean we are necessarily 'well'.
  • Five Pillar Wellness Risk has to do with self-help wellness and how well a person is conforming to the science in the self-help field.

What We Do Not Measure
The Five Pillar Wellness approach chooses to leave addiction issues, drugs, alcohol, cigarettes etc., to the medical establishment. We focus on measuring self-help parameters that can be easily fixed and ones that science sheds some light on.

Everyone believes they are well. We ask people to make a guess at grading their wellness on 35 scores. Then we measure their actual wellness against scientific standards on those 35 scores. Lastly, we compare the guesses against the real scores and calculate the wellness risk mathematically.

If a person believes they have very good wellness, when they really don’t, then they have a Wellness Risk. If a person believes they have very poor wellness, when they really don’t, then they are also at a Wellness Risk. The farther away they are from a standard, then the worse the Wellness Risk is.

Knowing the Five Pillar Wellness Risk we can categorize a group (cohort) of people large or small. Knowing the cohort risk allows a more efficient management of wellness for that group.

What you don’t measure, you can’t manage. We now have a Five Pillar Wellness grading scale in our tool box for wellness improvement. Measuring Wellness Risk.

We are ready with a new Wellness Paradigm Model.
Measure - Assess - Identify - Prioritize - Motivate


We measure Wellness Risk and provide Wellness Workshops to those who wish extra help. We have the following in our plan.

Special Note               

Every hour of every day,

millions of people awaken.

For everyone,
one thing is certain.

They must behave in a way that lessens their stress or,
they will die young.

Our program is a Wellness tool to help people interested in self-help Wellness strategies.

Business management and the workforce have multiple tools at their disposable for doing their job.

People interested in Wellness have very few tools and a bewildering array of Wellness data presented to them through various media, some science based, much of it not.

We would like to present a new Wellness tool to business and make a very generous offer to add to a company’s Wellness services.

Multidimensional Wellness is much larger than just nutrition, exercise and the FoodPainConnection alone. We know this from the prolific number of scientific papers in the Wellness field.

We started long ago on a project that was very large. This meant pieces would need to come together slowly. We concluded from clinical experience that the Five Pillars were the essence of Self-Help Wellness.

Science was the lead with a basic principle that, to keep it in the Self-Help category  various health care professions, including my own, would need to take a back seat while the science pertaining to Self-Help would need the lead.

So, what is the bottom line fine print with our program? If people follow our suggestions, our diet, our lifestyle, then they will see a correction in blood fats, a correction in blood pressure, a lowering to normalization of weight, a better vascular system, including the heart, and a better brain with all that this entails. This all comes naturally from following the Wellness science.

We measure a person for that science and show how to move forward with Five Pillar Wellness Risk Management.

It is time to launch this important field and tell people what their Five Pillar Wellness Risk numbers are.

Here's to, Making Wellness a priority.
