Lifestyle SequencingA New Kind Of Lifestyle Data Science
Lifestyle Behavioural Intervention
Unhealthy lifestyles account for an estimated 82% of all US healthcare costs, driving systemic low-grade inflammation that leads to long-term chronic inflammation. This process weakens the immune system, creates oxidative stress, cellular toxicity, cell death and multiple chronic diseases including obesity, type 2 diabetes, cancer, stroke, heart disease and Alzheimer’s. Unhealthy lifestyle factors are also known to create life-threatening complications from viruses like COVID-19, a primary risk factor is being overweight or obese.
Lifestyle behavioural intervention is increasingly popular as a health prevention method to lower obesity, drive healthy lifestyle habits, and reduce the long-term dangers of chronic disease.
Historically there has been no lifestyle assessment service that looks at lifestyle behaviour from the perspective of inflammatory risk.
Lifestyle Risk Factors
Our screening platform captures data on 25 lifestyle risk factors from exercise frequency and daily sleep hours to meal, snack and beverage habits, to stress and anxiety, alcohol consumption, nicotine use, and includes a built-in BMI calculator to calculate BMI score and weight level.
Lifestyle Risk Scoring
Each lifestyle topic has 5 possible answers. Algorithms apply an inflammatory risk level and an inflammatory risk score to each answer with color codes that depict risk levels. The totality of lifestyle answers creates a personal inflammatory lifestyle risk score.
Risk scoring of lifestyle habits facilitates the new data science of Lifestyle Sequencing. Indices can be created across population demographics for:
- Total inflammatory lifestyle risk scores
- Risk scores per lifestyle topic
- How lifestyle behaviours and inflammatory risks change by age groups
- How lifestyle behaviours and inflammatory risks change by weight levels
These indices will be published to the health and wellness community at large, register here for the launch of our data analytics service.
Wellness professionals can use the lifestyle assessment service to create lifestyle profiles for their clients and patients. Following a completed assessment, participants get an instant lifestyle risk summary and a unique ID which they give to their wellness advisor.
Wellness professionals access more detailed lifestyle reports that show personal lifestyle answers, inflammatory risk levels and risk scores for each assessment. All lifestyle report pages are displayed at anonymous encrypted URL’s which only the wellness provider can connect to a specific client by using their unique ID.
Our Thanks Go Out To
Dr. K Steven Whiting, PhD Biochemistry and Founder of the Institue of Nutritional Science in San Diego for early input into our screening methodology.
A Big Thank You! to Ami Mac M.D., Director of Translational Medicine at Stanford for the many hours you contributed in f2f discussions, phone calls, text messages and Zoom meetings.
The 150 professionals in the scientific health community introduced to us via Stanford who provided feedback to our screening platform and helped us to make it better.
And finally our appreciation for the positive responses to our screening platform when presented via Zoom to Ron Davies, Professor of Biochemistry and Genetics, and Lars Steinmetz, Professor of Genetics, both at the Stanford Genome Technology Center.
We appreciate all of the professional scientific health support, input and advice which has brought this project to life.
