Wellness Dual Risk, the Main Obstacle

Previous Article:   Plain Talk

What is Wellness Risk?
There is a subjective perception Wellness Risk and an objective science Wellness Risk. Wellness Risk is how closely a person lives their lifestyle according to the science of multidimansional Five Pillar Wellness.

Objective Science - Wellness Risk
Having a low Five Pillar Wellness score means a person is not following the science of wellness in their daily life because the score is based on science. A low Five Pillar score puts this person at high Wellness Risk. This we call a scientific-wellness risk. A person may know they are not behaving according to wellness science, or they may not know. In either case, if they're actually not behaving according to the science, then they are at risk. That is the major Five Pillar Wellness concept.

Perception Subjective - Wellness Risk
There is a perception risk involved in wellness in addition to the science objective wellness risk. Before being measured for wellness risk, if a person has a misconception as to where their Five Pillar Wellness Scores (35) actually are, then this would be subjective perception risk because it would lead to harmful behaviour that may move the risk even higher.

This risk is what we call a subjective perceptual wellness risk. If a person thinks their wellness score is somewhere that it is not, then that would, knowingly or unknowingly, lead to behaviour that is detrimental. For instance, a person could be behaving either in a way that they're exercising too much, or not exercising enough, or eating too much, or not eating enough. This would put them at a perceptual wellness risk because, where a person thinks they are at in the wellness continuum would influence how they behave.

There are many more instances of detriment perceptual wellness risk in each of the Five Pillars of Wellness. We need not go into all those here as many are self-evident.

Measuring Wellness Risk
To understand wellness risk we must measure the wellness perception and then measure how well a person adheres to the science of wellness. Comparing the two gives us the Wellness-Perception Risk for each of 35 scores. The Five Pillar Wellness Research Program gives us this comparison and grades the difference. Collecting Five Pillar Wellness Statistics will allow an evaluation of the Five Pillar Wellness Risk Hypothesis via data analysis.

The race each person runs is to survive the onslaughts of a harsh world, and the onslaughts of their own kind. Their key, is their intelligence, their ability to step outside the animal world and into the human world using their powers of thinking.

Wellness risk is the main obstacle to conquer. People conquer risk through the learning process. Many do a far better job at conquering risk than others. BUT, all can learn new ways.

We now have a way to measure Five Pillar Wellness and help people do a better job at winning the race of life. We have a new tool to measure wellness risk. We would be happy to discuss that with you.

Healthcare .... Disease care. For sure people want disease care but, they have a keen interest in healthy healthcare. A statement like that makes one wonder what the difference is between disease care and healthcare. We know the difference.


We are making a difference in the wellness of people.


Wellness Risk indicates a ‘heading’ for healthcare troubles. Businesses have a financial interest in keeping their workforce well. To help business, we have a plan.

We measure two types of wellness risk. 

  • Wellness-Science-Risk, Multidimensional 
    • This indicates how far away from wellness science a person is living.
  • Wellness-Perception-Risk.
    • Wellness perception risk is where a person perceives their wellness to be in relation to where it actually is.

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.
