Raison D'Être
Reason for Being

The reason for our Five Pillar Wellness program, and our various web sites, is to help people help themselves with Wellness strategies. One of the things we don't seem to have yet in our communities are numbers that indicate Wellness Risk or Wellness Compliance.

We can ask somebody if they exercise three times a week. We can ask somebody whether they eat three well-balanced meals a day. But then we have to define what we mean by exercise, define what we mean by well-balanced meals and define a whole slew of other things. This leads us into much argument and discussion without really accomplishing much. Then, we have to find out if people are really doing what they say they are doing.

And, to top it all off, Wellness is much more than just exercise and nutrition alone. From a musculoskeletal clinician’s point of view there are several issues with Wellness one must consider. Paring that list down was a key point in the process for us to build our Wellness program.
The conundrum is that various syndromes are most often summations of several stressors often requiring several health care practitioners to sort out. The premise of the Five Pillar Wellness Risk Management program is that we can help people through that conundrum.

Science has shed light on many Wellness strategies. We don't really need to debate those any longer. What we need to do is implement the science. It is that implementation on a regular basis that is our nemesis as humans. So, where does the core essence of Wellness reside?

We have spent quite some time defining the core of Wellness we call the Five Pillars. We established several questionnaires to measure a person's compliance with science. We put numbers to those 30 mini questionnaires. Our aim was thoroughness, completeness and inclusiveness. We decided on a scale. We coined a new term 'Wellness Risk'. We put numbers to Wellness Risk. We installed a protocol to ensure standardization internationally. We drafted a process to help people help themselves improve their scores.

Our process is measuring, assessing, identifying, prioritizing, and motivating to mitigate WELLNESS RISK. We help people help themselves. We are making WELLNESS a priority.

We believe we can implement this program similar to the way CPR was implemented in the general public in the 1970s and 80s. We are ready.
It is time to get going now.

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.
