Health Risk Assessment
The Health Risk Assessment is a third party tool created by The Wellness and Prevention Protocols developed by Dr. James Chestnut.
The Wellness and Prevention Protocols Health Risk Assessment is the first health measurement that assesses Allostatic Load (adaptive physiological status), Lifestyle Stressor Load, and Physical and Psychosocial Quality of Life and then analyzes and combines this data into a single and direct rating of current and predicted future wellness and prevention – the Wellness and Prevention Index. For patients who are already suffering with chronic illness and/or symptoms the Wellness and Prevention Protocols Health Risk Assessment will provide knowledge and understanding of how their past and current lifestyle and environments are causing the allostatic load that is the physiological basis of their chronic illness and/or symptoms. For those patients without diagnosed illness or symptoms, the Wellness and Prevention Protocols Health Risk Assessment has the unique ability to identify who is at risk before they experience illness or disease – this is the window for wellness and prevention that has never been available – UNTIL NOW!
The Wellness and Prevention Protocols Health Risk Assessment helps both practitioners and patients identify which past, current, and future lifestyle habits, including chiropractic care, are determining current and future health and quality of life.
The Wellness and Prevention Protocols Health Risk Assessment is based on the physiological concepts of allostasis and allostatic load. Allostasis describes how our body and mind systems adapt to internal environmental stressors (VSC, Unhealthy Emotions, Chronic Sympathetic Dominance) and external environmental stressors (Unhealthy Lifestyle Habits, Unhealthy Psychosocial environments, Polluted Environments) via adaptive changes in gene expression. Allostatic Load is a measure of the amount of accumulated stress load the body and mind systems are under due to chronic allostasis. The longer our body and mind are exposed to these chronic stressor loads from poor lifestyle habits, the more likely the adaptations in various body systems will lead to illness.
There are five questions that form the foundation of the revolutionary, unique, and evidence-based Health Risk Assessment and Report.
- What is the current health risk status of the individual?
- What lifestyle stressors are CAUSING the individual’s current health risk status?
- What is the individual’s predicted future health risk status?
- What lifestyle choices and health resources are REQUIRED for the individual’s health recovery and/or future wellness and prevention?
- What is required to assess and monitor the individual’s health risk status into the future?
The Wellness and Prevention Protocols Health Risk Assessment answers these foundational questions for both practitioner and patient INDEPENDENT OF DIAGNOSIS AND SYMPTOMS!
