The Goal of Operation Self-Reliance Health Research is to assess, track and evaluate the health of individuals as they transition from a city lifestyle to a country culture.
We hypothesize that the physical, mental and emotional health of individuals transitioning from a city lifestyle to a country culture will show scientifically documentable improvements, as demonstrated through blood chemistry, fitness testing and standardized mental/emotional assessments.
Upon joining the community each adult member will receive a health assessment to include:
- Functional Blood Chemistry Analysis
- Observational Analysis
- Functional Movement Assessment
- Stress Assessment
Assessments will be repeated 2 years after move-in to the community and after 5 years in the community.
Data will be tracked and analyzed. Observations and results will be prepared for publication.
