Clinical Association of Lifestyle Medicine [C.A.L.M.]

Healthier Lives Through Healthier Lifestyle Choices

Clinical Association of Lifestyle Medicine [C.A.L.M.] is a 501(c)3 Non-Profit Association of healthcare providers who are leading a collaborative effort to Improve Metabolic Health & Prevent Musculoskeletal Disorders as well as educate, screen and inform the public on the scientific evidence that lifestyle modifications are an essential component of a healthy life.

All Members of the Clinical Association of Lifestyle Medicine [C.A.L.M.] donate their time and resources conducting Stress, Hormones & Metabolic Health Evaluations at no charge to residents in their local communities as a way to increase Public Health Awareness on the Prevention & Treatment of Metabolic Health Risk, Musculoskeletal Disorders, and how to restore the body’s natural acid-alkaline balance to help eliminate toxic overload for better health and healing. In this way C.A.L.M. Members are able to promote healthy lifestyle behavior modifications along with their treatment to help improve health and well-being.

C.A.L.M. Members Focus on Public Health Awareness

C.A.L.M. is dedicated to increasing Public Health Awareness on the Prevention & Treatment of Metabolic Health Risk and Musculoskeletal Disorders through the application and use of simple, natural lifestyle healing approaches.

The number one reason people visit healthcare providers is Musculoskeletal Disorders, which affect nearly 50% of all Americans over the age of 18. In addition, the leading cause of mortality worldwide is chronic disease, resulting from Metabolic Health Risk lifestyle factors.

Most chronic diseases are preventable, and so are many musculoskeletal disorders, but to be successful in prevention, a strong focus must be placed on Lifestyle Medicine Principles. Lifestyle Medicine is the evidence-based practice of helping individuals and families adopt and sustain healthy lifestyle behaviors that affect health and quality of life.

STRESS, HORMONES & METABOLIC HEALTH EVALUATIONS

Since education and prevention are two of the main C.A.L.M. guiding principles, Healthcare Providers conduct Stress, Hormones & Metabolic Health Evaluations at no charge to business owners, corporations and residents in their local communities as a way to promote healthier lives through healthier lifestyle choices.

All C.A.L.M. Members use the BioScan 3000™ Metabolic Health Analyzer, in the conduction of the Metabolic Health Evaluations and use the results obtained, a Metabolic Health Status, to recommend lifestyle modifications and/or treatment options, when appropriate.  In addition, the Healthcare Providers recommend the use of the book, Lifestyle is the best Medicine – 7 Principles for Total Health Improvement, as a state-of-the-art Personalized Program Guidebook to recommend 1 of 5 different LIfestyle Medicine Action Plans.

The Members of C.A.L.M. believe the best treatment approach for poor lifestyle behaviors is the use of multiple anti-inflammatory lifestyle modifications including but not limited to dietary changes, nutritional supplementation, stress management, proper sleep, exercise, reducing the use of alcohol and stop smoking.

The ultimate goal and primary focus of C.A.L.M. and its Members is to promote healthier lives through healthier lifestyle choices.

The Mission of The Clinical Association of Lifestyle Medicine (C.A.L.M.)

The Mission of The Clinical Association of Lifestyle Medicine

To Increase Public Health Awareness that specific healthy lifestyle choices along with your treatment program can lead to a healthier life.

The purpose of Clinical Association of Lifestyle Medicine is to increase Public Health Awareness that specific lifestyle changes can help lead to a healthier life as well as how to restore the body’s natural acid-alkaline balance to help eliminate toxic overload, reverse acid build-up, lose weight and increase energy.

C.A.L.M. believes that it all begins with Lifestyle Education Awareness and a grass-roots program that includes Stress, Hormones & Metabolic Health Evaluations at no charge to residents in every community.

In this way, we are fulfilling our purpose of increasing Public Health Awareness on the Prevention & Treatment of Metabolic Health Risk and Musculoskeletal Disorders to promote awareness that lifestyle choices are available that research proves will help improve health.

Musculoskeletal Disorders as a Public Health Concern
APHA Policy Statement: 20114 November 1, 2011

apha logo

The American Public Health Association (APHA) is the world’s oldest and largest association of its kind, founded more than 140 years ago and boasting over 25,000 members.

The APHA has championed public health causes including tobacco control, food quality and safety, breast-feeding and many others; and advocated for policies to impact conditions that affect millions, including diabetes, heart disease, and many other chronic and debilitating conditions.

Musculoskeletal Disorders have a profound global impact. Low back pain alone is the single largest source of years lived with disability, causing 83 million disability-adjusted life years in 2010.

Even with these horrendous Musculoskeletal Disorder statistics and the condition being such a glaring “Public Health” issue, APHA did not have a policy statement about Musculoskeletal Pain and Disorders until November 2011.

Policy Statement 20114; “Musculoskeletal Disorders as a Public Health Concern”

This monumental health concern is now a Policy and part of the public record. Our Wellness Watchers Foundation – Certified Healthcare Providers are helping to increase awareness of this Policy by taking a public health position on prevention and treatment and providing Metabolic Health Evaluations at no charge to members of their community.

Policy Statement 20114 on Metabolic Disorders States the Following:

  • Musculoskeletal disorders are a major source of morbidity in the United States.
  • Musculoskeletal disorders represent a burden on society in both direct costs to the health care system and indirect costs through loss of work and productivity.[5]
  • Evidence-based treatment and prevention measures are available, but there is a need to “increase the awareness of these interventions among health care providers and the population at large”.[6–16]
  • There is also a need to encourage future research to elucidate more interventions for the treatment and prevention of these disorders and to promote the health of people with a musculoskeletal disability.

Policy 20114 Problem StatementMusculoskeletal Disorders as a Public Health Concern
Musculoskeletal disorders and diseases are the leading cause of disability in the United States, accounting for more than one half of all chronic conditions in people aged older than 50 years in developed countries.[19]

The economic impact of these conditions is also staggering: in 2004, direct expenditures in health care costs and indirect expenditures in lost wages were estimated to total $849 billion, or 7.7% of the national gross domestic product.[20]

Goal of Policy Statement 20114Musculoskeletal Disorders as a Public Health Concern

The goal of this policy statement is to encourage the development and dissemination of educational initiatives and materials to address musculoskeletal disorders as a public health problem, to increase advocacy for important public health legislation, and to inform and train public health and health care workers in the prevention, treatment, and ongoing health promotion for people with musculoskeletal disabilities through public and professional educational programs. 

Scientific Issues Policy 20114 - Musculoskeletal Disorders as a Public Health Concern
Worldwide, musculoskeletal conditions are the most common causes of severe long-term pain and physical disability. 21,22]

In the United States alone, musculoskeletal conditions are a leading cause of disability, accounting for more than 130 million patient visits to health care providers annually.

“Musculoskeletal Disorders are the number-one reason people visit their physician, and they affect nearly half of Americans older than 18 years”.[20]

There are evidence-based interventions that can be used to educate the public on the prevention of these disorders. An example is a program addressing back pain or increased physical activity.[12–16]

There is a need to develop “system-wide” strategies to educate society about the importance of health promotion, prevention, and treatment of musculoskeletal disorders.

Conclusion Policy 20114 - Musculoskeletal Disorders as a Public Health Concern

A considerable public health burden is associated with musculoskeletal diseases, which, in many cases, can be prevented or treated through evidence-based programs.

There is currently a lack of implementation of these evidence-based educational programs addressing the prevention and treatment of musculoskeletal disorders. There is a need for organizations serving the public to educate the public and health care professionals on the importance of addressing musculoskeletal disorders

In accordance with the Public Health Concern Policies, The Clinical Association of Lifestyle Medicine [C.A.L.M.] has developed an Association of Healthcare Providers that educate, inform and screen members of their community to bring awareness to essential lifestyle modifications which may improve their overall health and well-being.

Public Health Perspective for Prevention & Management of Musculoskeletal Pain

The Clinical Association of Lifestyle Medicine [C.A.L.M.] feels that its Healthcare Provider Members are thinking beyond their offices when they join the Association and donate their time to conduct Stress, Hormones & Metabolic Health Evaluations.

The C.A.L.M. Members are helping to shape the future today by increasing Lifestyle Education Awareness for both Metabolic Health and Musculoskeletal Disorders.  as well as the growing body of scientific evidence that has demonstrated that lifestyle intervention is an essential component in the treatment of chronic health conditions that can be as effective as medication, but without the risks and unwanted side-effects. C.A.L.M. has developed a systematic and comprehensive approach to incorporate a Personalized Lifestyle Medicine Program into everyday life.

The Stress, Hormones & Metabolic Health Evaluations offered by the Members of C.A.L.M. are looking beyond the individual patient to the population level at large to help professionally educate & inform individuals in their community that healthy lifestyle choices are helping people lead healthier lives.

The Second Purpose of The Clinical Association of Lifestyle Medicine [C.A.L.M.]

Metabolic Health Issues

By 2020, the World Health Organization predicts that two-thirds of all disease worldwide will be the result of lifestyle choices. Currently, 50 percent of Americans live with one or more chronic diseases, conditions in which Metabolic Health issues such as diet, exercise and other lifestyle factors play a key role. In addition lifestyle related diseases have become top issues from a public health perspective.

Our C.A.L.M. Healthcare Providers are uniquely positioned to stem the tide of chronic disease through Lifestyle Education Awareness and Metabolic Health Evaluations. A typical day’s work for any healthcare provider today involves seeing patients with complaints that are ultimately caused by or exacerbated from poor lifestyle choices such as stress, inactivity, poor sleep, bad diet, and smoking.

All these conditions combined make it blatantly obvious that healthcare must change. There never has been more need for healthcare providers to offer an evidence-based, metabolic-based lifestyle modification program in their practice, then now. That’s where our C.A.L.M. Healthcare Providers come in. They have the knowledge, desire, technology and commitment to assist members of their community to improve their health and well-being.

Why The Clinical Association of Lifestyle Medicine Focus on Lifestyle Education & Awareness

The leading causes of death across the globe are healthcare challenges that are caused due to poor lifestyle choices. Around 60 to 70% of all visits to primary care healthcare providers now have a lifestyle based reason and while lip service if often given to prevention, governments have largely chosen to ignore the funding of real preventative action.

C.A.L.M. finds it evident that a different way of managing modern lifestyle based healthcare challenges is needed. There needs to be a way to bridge the gap between public health and clinical practice that has a patient-centered focus. The advent of the C.A.L.M. education and awareness program offers promise for doing this.

Treat the Underlying Metabolic Health Cause of Lifestyle Related Conditions

C.A.L.M. feels that it is imperative that patients through their healthcare providers finally and systematically address the underlying causes of metabolic health lifestyle related conditions rather than superficially treating symptoms.

There is now overwhelming evidence that lifestyle factors such as acid/alkaline imbalance, poor eating habits, lack of exercise, smoking, excessive alcohol consumption, chronic stress, and poor sleeping habits are key factors in the development of the cause for chronic lifestyle conditions.

Most healthcare organizations define lifestyle-related conditions as those challenges where the cause is significantly influenced by lifestyle factors and where a modification of the behaviors can significantly improve prevention and treatment of the condition.

Today most of the world’s population have incorporated unhealthy lifestyle habits that lead to numerous biological health challenges, probably stemming from a form of low-grade systemic inflammation. Chronic inflammation and free radical damage underlies most chronic diseases and risk factors. The first sign of a poor lifestyle in a patient is typically increased body weight through eating excessive amounts of packaged and fast-foods that are high in calories and the additional fact of lack of exercise.

One in two Americans are either overweight or obese. Average body mass index has on average risen dramatically, while at the same time we have never been more sedentary. It is estimated that more than 70% of people in the world are not achieving adequate levels of physical activity.

The cost of poor lifestyle choices is impossible to ignore and can’t be sustained from an economic standpoint. Lifestyle related conditions have been established as a clear threat to human health as well as destroying the world economy.

Key Lifestyle Medicine principles include prevention strategies that address lifestyle habits, and the cause’s common to lifestyle related conditions, typically seen as low-grade systemic inflammation, stress, and metabolic dysfunctions.

Addressing lifestyle factors has the potential to reduce the burden of chronic disease to the healthcare system, and increase quality-of-life and longevity for individuals. In addition to prevention, lifestyle modifications have the added benefits to change or reverse the progression of many chronic conditions.

Dollarphotoclub_54566222When we observe health at its basic level, we find that our bodies often have a remarkable capacity to begin healing themselves, and much more quickly than had once been thought. Many treatments planned may not be necessary because the regenerative and biological mechanisms that control our health and well-being are so efficient once a physiological lifestyle is adopted.

If unhealthy lifestyle stressors persist over a long time period, the body may not be able to create an adaptive response causing inflammatory hormones and cytokines which trigger chronic healthcare conditions. Lifestyle related conditions can be understood in the framework of driving the body’s adaptive capabilities beyond the ability of the body to maintain a state of health and well-being.

With improved understanding of lifestyle interventions we must now translate the considerable amount of positive data and research into recommending and providing patients with a healthier way of living.

The ultimate goal and primary focus of the Clinical Association of Lifestyle Medince [C.A.L.M.] is to bring awareness to the public that evidence-based, safer, more effective and less expensive services are available to them which may help to correct the harmful consequences of unhealthy lifestyles.

BioScan 3000™- Metabolic Health Analyzer Is used in conducting Stress, Hormones & Metabolic Health Evaluations At No Charge To You & Your Organization

BioScan 3000™- Metabolic Health Analyzer Is used in Stress, Hormones & Metabolic Health Evaluations At No Charge To You & Your Organization

BioScan 3000™- Metabolic Health Analyzer

The Stress, Hormones & Metabolic Health Evaluations utilize the BioScan 3000 Metabolic Health Analyzer to measure & monitor 15 Biomarkers of health to determine an individual’s Metabolic Health Status.   

BioScan 3000 – 15 +1 Tissue Calculations That Make Lifestyle Recommendations More Effective and Measurable

bioscan3000The BioScan 3000™ is a painless, non-invasive diagnostic assessment device that provides our Certified Healthcare Provider with a readout of critical electrical tissue conductivity calculations in the human body. Assessments are conducted using a connection between the analyzer and the wrist and ankle through standard EKG sensor pad electrodes.

The BioScan 3000™ contains a precision high-frequency impedance meter that directly measures the resistance and reactance values. The device generates a harmless 50 kilohertz sine wave, less than 1 milliampere, which flows through the body. In response to the flow of this current, the BioScan 3000™, measures the opposition of body cells and tissues. The voltage drop between electrodes provides the measure of impedance which is low in lean tissue and high in fat tissue and bones.

Using regression analysis, the sophisticated microprocessor in the BioScan 3000™ then performs all necessary calculations and computes the different and unique biomarker values for each patient, and then provides your healthcare provider a complete printout of the results.

Accuracy of the BioScan 3000™ New Patient Screening Analyzer

The measuring of resistance and reactance in the human body requires a sophisticated technological approach. For many bioimpedance meters, often the type used in gyms, fitness salons or other non-healthcare facilities, the accuracy of the resistance and reactance measurements varies greatly. The BioScan 3000™ meter accurately measures resistance and reactance at all combinations of resistance and reactance found in the human body, with resistance as accurate as 0.1% ohms and reactance as accurate as 0.2% ohms.

Published Research – the BioScan 3000™ Metabolic Health Analyzer

The BioScan 3000™ was developed by a team of scientists and engineers who have been designing diagnostic equipment for over twenty five years. Thousands of analyzers built by this team are in use by healthcare providers throughout the world.

The use of the BioScan 3000™ is supported by clinical research and many prestigious scientists have published studies using this equipment to gather their research data. Many of the famous journals that have published studies using this device, include The American Journal of Clinical Nutrition, The Journal of Clinical Endocrinology & Metabolism and The Journal of Exercise Physiology to name only three.

(FDA Registered

The BioScan 3000™ Metabolic Health Analyzer has been registered with the FDA to assess changes in electrical tissue conductivity in order to analyze body composition.

The BioScan 3000™ does not diagnose disease, or recommend treatment regimens, or quantify treatment effectiveness, only a qualified healthcare provider can make these judgements.

BioScan 3000™ – Provides 15 Different Tissue Calculations

The detailed printout from the BioScan 3000™ Metabolic Health Analyzer, provides 15 different Electrical Tissue Conductivity Calculations, (see sample test strip). In addition, by testing acid/alkaline balance using at home saliva pH value, the total number of calculations evaluated are 15.

These vital cell, tissue and fluid calculations enable you to make nutrition and lifestyle recommendations that are more effective, and provide results that can be reported objectively.

15 Calculations – 4 Major Risk Factors – 1 Health Finding

When an individual signs up for the free public service of having a Metabolic Health Risk & Back Pain Screening, they will review the (15) different Tissue Calculations that help to evaluate (4) Risk Factors, that all come together to Determine their (1) Metabolic Health Status.

With the Metabolic Health Status established, our C.A.L.M. Members will then be able to introduce appropriate Lifestyle Wellness Action Plans to maintain or improve their status.

It’s all about discovering if certain lifestyle factors are a contributing cause of Metabolic Health issues, musculoskeletal disorders, poor health & healing, toxic overload, weight gain and decreased energy.
