If I am not sick or in any pain then I must be well . . . ? Or am I?

No pain does not necessarily mean you are well

No pain does not necessarily mean you are well

Some define wellness as an absence of disease: if I am not sick then I must be well?

The answer . . . not necessarily!  Even if you do not have any outward signs and symptoms of disease you may be heading down a path that will cause chronic disease of aging.

Modern medicine is very good at defining, describing and testing for chronic disease but defining, describing and testing for wellness has never been a priority.  Instead of defining each separately, we can look at chronic disease and wellness as a continuum.

The stage in between wellness and chronic disease is subchronic disease.  Here, you know you aren’t well but you are not quite sick enough to be considered truly ill either.  It is where most middle aged adults drift.  Is there a way to really know where you are on the continuum of wellness and chronic disease?


At Advanced Wellness Chiropractic, I use advanced technology called The COREscore™ to measure how deeply stress and tension are impacting your overall health. The computerized program takes the results from the three tests and computes your individual COREscore™.  Scores of 80 and above are indicative of a well neural integrated nervous system and reflect wellness.  Scores of 59 and lower are indicative of a poorly neural integrated nervous system and reflect a more challenged state of health.  Scores from 60 to 79 are considered transition and indicative of the subchronic disease state.

Where do you think you fall?  You might be surprised . . . .

The real goal of wellness is not to subdue signs and symptoms of chronic disease with medication driving you back into a subchronic disease state but to move you all the way back to wellness.  Instead of micromanage the chronic disease we should macromanage wellness and let the body take care of itself!

The best way to keep the body moving toward wellness and away from chronic disease is to accomplish three primary goals:


  •  Keep the Central Nervous System free of tension and stress with regular chiropractic adjustments.
  •  Decrease the level of silent (cellular) inflammation with the Zone Anti-inflammatory diet and pharmaceutical grade fish oils.
  •  Actively engage in smart exercise which consists of regular cardiovascular activities as well strengthening and stretching key postural muscles.


Chronic stress and tension can damage anyone’s health.  Where you fall the COREscore™ graph will represent where you fall on the continuum between wellness and chronic disease. The goal is wellness!  Get your nervous system functioning consistently better, move your score closer to 100 and live a life you deserve!
