Integrative Health Appraisal
Identify the root cause of your symptoms and health challenges before treating the symptoms! The IHA helps you uncover and understand the body’s messaging systems as a means to measure your state of wellness and overall risks to your health by integrating health history information with current elevated symptoms and then mapping the interrelations of each system in the body to determine the root cause.
The Health Appraisal Questionnaire (HAQ) was originally developed in 1978 by James F. Fries, MD, and colleagues at Stanford University. It was one of the first self-report functional status (disability) measures and has become the dominant instrument in many disease areas. It is widely used throughout the world and has become a mandated outcome measure for clinical trials in rheumatoid arthritis and other diseases.
The HAQ is an advanced questionnaire system for assessing physiological load within each of the 12 systems of the body and providing the practitioner with visual feedback to perform organ mapping and make essential lifestyle modifications based on your score results, as well as your individual health history, current symptoms, and your most troubling current challenges.
The HAQ can be followed up and re-taken every 4 to 6 weeks to assess progress and make appropriate changes and modifications.
