Do you want to work together to help human safety, health & performance?

Hand shake - MSThe Diagnosis Foundation, is dedicated to searching for the causes behind human safety, health & performance conditions.  As a way to improve this, we are promoting objective and holistic diagnosis.

On a personal note, I have a history of board certification in clinical nutrition.  Through my active career as a physician, I relatively successfully treated a large number of people with diabetes, thyroid, liver and adrenal gland issues.  During this time, I had been frustrated by the relative lack of attention given to what I considered to be one of the fundamental factors in these conditions, specifically, essential nutrient assessment.  This contributed to my desire to advance diagnosis which seeks underlying causes.

The Diagnosis Foundation is young, only 2 years old.  Yet in this time, it has initiated programs of diagnostic: testing, education and research.  Our current focus is on biomechanical factors underlying performance and disability, but our strategy includes adding essential nutrient diagnostic programs in the near future and cognitive testing shortly after that.

We have screening programs to test the public on bio-mechanical factors as well as educational programs to train the people necessary to spread these testing techniques over a wider area.  We have also established a detailed referral data base to direct patients towards providers who are trained in the type of work we are screening for.  This model will be repeated for each diagnostic area we adopt.

Our plans call for establishing a number of different diagnostic areas coordinated in such a way to create a new diagnostic career in biomechanical testing.  As the number of diagnostic areas grow, we will build multiple career paths, all centered on diagnosis which seeks causes.  These will ultimately culminate in the post-doctoral specialty of Holistic Diagnostician and a new profession, the Doctor of Holistic Diagnosis.

Such extensive ambitions are not without experience lending some credibility.  In addition to my background as a chiropractic physician, I was a significant contributor to establishing the International Space University and their new degree program, Master of Space Studies.

I want to hear of your ambitions, programs and ways you are working to improve human health and where better diagnosis can play a role.  I hope there will be an opportunity for us to work together in some way.  Please contact me so we can explore where and when we might be able to contribute to each other’s efforts.

Target stores sets itself apart with GMO free products. How do you set yourself apart?

target-msTarget sets itself apart by announcing its store brand is non GMO. Whole Foods started the trend when it noticed a 15-30% increase in a products sales when it is labeled GMO free. Chipolte restaurants have signed on with development of a new GMO free menu and Ben & Jerry’s ice cream has announced a new non GMO product. 1

They respond to a public need and they will be successful. At the Diagnosis Foundation (DxF), we have been responding to the public’s need for answers about important health questions. We developed a course in Balanced Muscle Strength to target workouts for individuals. When individual muscles are tested for strengths and weaknesses, a purposeful workout is designed to improve safety, health, and performance.

How many amino acids are there?

GlycineProteins are a group of chemicals in the body that make up your muscles, ligaments, tendons, enzymes and the basic structural framing of your body. Proteins are made up of very long strings of 20 different amino acids, each arranged in a very specific sequence. Of these 20 different amino acids, 10 must be supplied from the diet. Your body can then convert these 10 essential amino acids into the others needed to produce every protein in the body. These 10 amino acids are thus called the “Essential Amino Acids”.

Experimental Evidence
The amino acids that are essential in the human diet were established in a series of experiments led by William Cumming Rose. The experiments involved elemental diets to healthy male graduate students. These diets consisted of cornstarch, sucrose, butterfat without protein, corn oil, inorganic salts, the known vitamins, a large brown “candy” made of liver extract flavored with peppermint oil (to supply any unknown vitamins), and mixtures of highly purified individual amino acids. The main outcome measure was nitrogen balance. Rose noted that the symptoms of nervousness, exhaustion, and dizziness were encountered to a greater or lesser extent whenever human subjects were deprived of an essential amino acid.(1)

Diagnosis
Being assessed and then treating deficiencies for essential amino acid can prevent: chronic fatigue, assessing the risk of heart disease, depression, autism, attention deficit hyperactivity disorder, inflammation, and neurological disorders. (2)

Diagnosis before treatment is essential in the process of health. It doesn’t help to build muscles by taking Goji berries if your body is deficient in even 1 essential amino acid. Similarly, it doesn’t help to build strength if your exercise program doesn’t diagnosis which muscles are weak compared to their opposing muscles. It only takes a small variation in muscle balances to create a joint that is not working to its maximum.  It’s a kinetic connection! Want to learn more about joint health?

Dr. John M. Wallman – Founder, President

Dr. Wallman is president of the Diagnosis Foundation (DxF) and an active contributor to the educational program.  Prior to founding the DxF in 2011, he had been a žchiropractic physician for 33 years specializing in nutrition with an emphasis in exercise physiology & endocrinology.

He also played a major role in helping to start the žInternational Space University (ISU).  This university offers graduate level degrees to leading students and space professional from around the world. As Director of Academic Affairs, he supervised curriculum development, research, faculty and academic staff.  One of his major projects while in this role was to help secure a $30 million grant to establish the ISU central campus facility in France.

Dr. Wallman has a family background in healthcare starting in the early 1900’s with his great uncle and later his father as pioneering doctors of chiropractic who helped advance the profession to become one of the leading portal of entry health care professions in the world.

Doctor of Holistic Diagnosis

Columns w DiagnosisThe Diagnosis Foundation (DxF) is ultimately going to build a new health care profession, the Doctor of Holistic Diagnosis (DHDx).  This doctor would only diagnose and do no treatments, thus eliminating an inherent conflict of interest that is present with many health care professions.  This type of doctor would refer patients to other health care providers for treatment.  They would have a strong emphasis on:

  • Seeking underlying causes
  • Using objective means of diagnosis whenever possible and
  • Cover all human dimensions (body, mind, social, environmental and spiritual)

To build up to and support this new profession, the DxF will need a few major things.  An: 1) educational system; 2) clinical facilities and; 3) research capabilities.  Each of these, the DxF is doing in a stepwise, progressive fashion.

1) For example, in the educational program area, we have the following sequence of activities.

  • Certificate courses – i.e. the current course in muscle strength testing
  • Continuing education courses – recently implemented
  • Certificate programs – Diagnosis aide, Diagnosis trainer are both under development
  • Post doctoral specialties – Holistic Diagnostician for MD, DC, DO & ND.
  • Degree programs – Holistic Diagnosis (HDx) Technician; HDx Technologist; HDx Assistant
  • Professional Degree – Doctor of Holistic Diagnosis (DHDx)

The first series of the educational program is already under way with a certificate course in muscle strength testing. Students are taught muscle strength testing along with the supportive anatomy, physiology, procedures & legal requirements. Certificate series planned for the near future include: essential nutrient testing, more biomechanics (range of motion, posture), cognitive functions, cognitive skills, environmental toxins, etc.  Each series of certificate courses adds more components to the eventual degree programs.

2) The clinical facilities series is also underway.  This progression starts with screening programs in each of the areas that the DxF develops educational courses in.  Over the past few months, we’ve held public service screening events at over 30 venues in the Long Island and Metro NY area.  We’ve done our first couple of screening tours to New England and the Atlantic Coast and we’ve now screened over 400 people.

The progression of clinical facilities looks like this:

  • Screening events – at temporary facilities
  • Screening programs – regularly repeated screens
  • Multi Year Specialty Diagnostic Clinics – specializing in one human dimension (i.e. body or mind)
  • Multi Year Holistic Diagnostic Clinics – specializing in more than one human dimension
  • Permanent diagnostic facilities – one dimension
  • Permanent holistic diagnostic facility – multiple dimensions

Facilities will be needed in all 3 major program areas (education, testing, R&D).  Facilities may focus on one specific program or any combination of 2 or more.  For example, current facilities needs in the educational program include: proctored examination sites and seminar venues.  As future educational needs expand from hourly and weekends to multi week and permanent, the DxF will release Requests For Proposals to the public and sites that have already become part of the DxF family.

To support the clinical series, the DxF has established a DxProvider Data Base (DB) to gather information on health care practitioners, their training and experience in each diagnostic area.  We currently have the DB established to gather information on providers who do individual muscle strength testing, diagnosis &/or treatment.  As the DxF adds each new diagnostic educational and testing program, the DxF will also add new specialty sections to the DxProvider DB as well.

Development of the Doctor of Holistic Diagnosis profession, is being led by the founder and president of the Diagnosis Foundation.  Dr. Wallman has done large scale projects like this before in helping to launch the International Space University.  For additional information on his background, see here.

There is much more the DxF is doing that is not covered in this post, but this will give you enough of an idea to get you started.  Would you like to join us on this venture?  We need members, health care providers and organizations with facilities.  We need volunteers for screening events, curriculum development health care educators and screeners.  Contact us with your ideas.  We’d love to hear from you!

What is the #2 reason for doctor visits?

The #2 reason people visit the doctor is for joint pain related to osteoarthritis disease. When you visit a doctor who is not trained in muscle imbalances, the only treatment is to prescribe pain relieving meds. This does not treat the underlying cause and only masks the problem until more complications occur. Most of muscle imbalances can be corrected with exercises. Do you want to prevent osteoarthritis disease? Start now by educating yourself!

The Diagnosis Foundation promotes health with free Balanced Muscle Strength screenings to educate the public. In addition, we have certification courses open to the public!
