What are UthingTM Scores?
Wellness benchmark: How is your body doing? How far are you from the point of “wellness perfection”? How much health effort do you need to put in and which system should you start with? Curious? Need a direction? Need some motivation? Get to know your wellness benchmark. It will help you understand your body and direct health efforts regardless of the type of care you choose.
Eye opener: If you’ve been paying attention to health and have done the right things UthingTM Scores will reflect that. Got an “A” or a “B”? Boast about it! You deserve it. If you haven’t paid attention to health in a while or did things that weren’t very useful for your body, you may be surprised with lower scores. Don’t despair. “C” should get you motivated. “D” should get you thinking. Try to get a notch above.
Self-care pathfinder: Would you want to put more effort into self care, but not sure how to start? UthingTM Scores will help you establish priorities by finding your weak systems. Always start your efforts at the weakest link. This approach brings the best results.
Effort checker: Are you on a health mission? About to test a new treatment, new diet, or a new modality? Do before and after tests to see whether your efforts are paying off.
UthingTM Scores do not:
Provide disease diagnosis: To get proper diagnosis one needs to fulfill special diagnostic criteria. In no way Scores can provide any of that. Diagnosis can only be provided by a qualified health care practitioner.
Provide complete health assessment: A self-assessment questionnaire has limitations. It is totally dependent on the quality of the responses. The Scores can only work for you if you give accurate answers. Remember: garbage in, garbage out. Be aware that to have a complete UthingTM picture you will need your biochemical score and functional score on top of this questionnaire. These tools will become available at a later date.
Replace qualified health care: UthingTM Scores are guidelines for self-care, not a treatment or replacement of a qualified health care provider. Use them as they are intended: for self-discovery, for information and education purposes only.
Who is it for?
UthingTM Scores are not for everyone. They are only suitable for individuals generally regarded as “healthy” who are curious about their position on a health continuum. UthingTM Scores are not suitable for individuals that are infirm, have a major disease, or are disabled. In such cases bodies work differently and the Scores cannot not reflect that.
Why should you care to know your Score?
People are surprised when they get a diagnosis of disease. But there should not be many of those, because in the vast majority of cases disease development can be traced to loss of good health. Don`t be surprised by your doctor`s assessment. Know your wellness benchmark ahead of time.
How it works
UthingTM Scores Questionnaire has 49 multiple choice questions, which are divided into 7 body systems. The scoring system is very simple and not any different than in schools`. The scores range from a perfect “A” to a unsatisfactory “E”. You can get a feel here:
My clinical observations
Over the years I made an important clinical observation: health declines in inverse proportion to health effort. Because of this phenomenon there is quite a variation in health among individuals belonging to the the same age group. I managed to approximate UthingTM Scores for a specific age bracket based on the average health effort.
- Up to 25 yrs – A
- 26-35 yrs – B
- 36 – 55 yrs – C
- 56 – 75 – D
- 76 + – E
What Score should you get? Always aim at least a “B”. If you scored lower, try to get a notch above. Don’t settle for less just because you are within your age bracket. Average does not mean healthy, especially not in North America. The good part is that health is not a coincidence and you have the upper hand.
