Maximizing Health with Prediction


Maximizing health through prediction is a powerful approach. By leveraging predictive tools like the Galleri Multi-Cancer Detection Screening and AI ECG Prediction of Heart Health, Three Forks can help individuals proactively manage their health. Early detection of potential health issues allows for timely intervention and personalized wellness plans, ultimately leading to better health outcomes and improved quality of life for guests and their families.

The GALLERI multi-cancer detection test is the first of its kind and used at Mayo Clinic. The test screens for 50+ kinds of early stage active cancers. Early detection is the key to longevity and wellness.

The standard ECGs that one receives are not predictive of future heart conditions that can be predicted through the Mayo Clinic AI ECG over-read. Three Forks offers to its guests in the LONGEVITY ASSESSMENT AND RETREAT this exclusive AI ECG OVER READ which is predictive of future heart conditions which can cause heart failure.

Three Forks provides our guests with access, if indicated through the assessment data, directly to Mayo Clinic at one of its three locations for further diagnosis and treatment!

Guests can participate in the Longevity and Wellness programs through an assessment during their stay or through a 3 or 4 day retreat which includes additional classes on fitness and nutrition as well as spa and outdoor recreation activities. Please see retreat schedule and sample itineraries below!

During the interview, the significance of nutrition is highlighted as an integral part of the program. Sustainable cooking skills are imparted through the Mayo Clinic Healthy Living menu, emphasizing moderation over deprivation. Additionally, the ranch offers training in proper weight training techniques in its well-equipped gym.

Explanation of Longevity and Wellness Tests

Electrocardiogram with Artificial Intelligence Analysis

An Electrocardiogram (also called ECG or EKG) records the electrical signals in the heart. Mayo Clinic ECG interpretation includes a state-of-the-art Artificial Intelligence program. The AI ECG can help predict risk of heart failure, atrial fibrillation and aortic stenosis and can predict biological age.

DEXA Body Composition Scan

  • Bone density can predict risk for osteoporosis.
  • Body composition can measure the body fat percentage as well as allows the ability to see fat distribution through the body which can predict risk for developing diabetes, high blood pressure, and heart disease.

Cardiovascular Fitness Test

The cardiovascular fitness test predicts VO2max, the maximum amount of oxygen the body utilizes during cardiovascular exercise. This test is a key performance indicator important in creating an individualized cardiovascular training plan.

Seldom does one have an experience that is life changing. My visit to Three Forks and the Wellness Assessment set me on a path that will do just that. Though my challenges are personal, my goals are universal. The combination of wellness and enjoyment, and the sheer beauty of Three forks set the stage. The excellent wellness coaching and follow through kept the momentum, helped prioritize my goals, and provided me with motivation and positive reinforcement. Finally, my pending visit to the Mayo Clinic will provide me with the peace of mind that I have done everything that I can to have the future that I envision. Time and money well spent!
