I’ve been using the Gut Health Storylines App from Health Storylines…and thank goodness I found this!
This is an amazing app, in the world of technology, which can tend to overcomplicate our lives, if you ask me.Keeping up your health can be hard work. Think about it. We spend countless hours gawking at our smartphone displays, continually playing on social media, or those addictive online games, and watching videos that may actually have adverse affects on our health in the long run. But choose carefully, and your smartphone can be your most powerful…and healthiest weapon.
Or make things a lot easier on yourself, and check out the the Health Storylines website – http://www.healthstorylines.info/gut
I traditionally like to record everything via pen and paper – to be honest, I’m kind of intimidated by technology. Now it’s easy to record your symptoms, food reactions, bowel patterns, moods, and more for Crohn’s disease, ulcerative colitis (UC), or other inflammatory bowel diseases (IBD). I have an indescribable combination of everything, so my first concern was that this app would not be quite right for me.
However, I was wrong. You get to choose what you want to track to build your own health story. This enables you to learn more about your health, and share more with your doctor, so you both see the full story.
With Gut Health Storylines, it just comes down to swiping – that’s all? Yep – and I can handle that!
This ap has easy to understand health tools on the app to better manage and monitor your Crohn’s disease, ulcerative colitis (UC), and other inflammatory bowel diseases (IBD). Here’s just a few of the things you can do on this app – way more efficiently than pen and paper.
• TRACK symptoms, moods, and vitals signs related to your overall health
• RECORD the foods you eat and any reactions triggered
• MONITOR your bowel patterns to understand your Crohn’s or UC flares
• REMEMBER doctor’s appointments and to take medications on time
• JOURNAL about your condition and other aspects of daily living
• IMPORT data from other health and fitness apps that you use
• CONNECT with your circle of support, share your health story, and receive messages of encouragement
Recently diagnosed with gut issues and my doctor advised that I track my symptoms, bowel movements and mood, but found it hard to keep up with. Searched Google play for something that I could use and have been using Gut storyline ever since. I would recommend to all those living with gut issues...
Health Storylines™ was created by a passionate team of self-care advocates who believe that the key to healthcare innovation is to hear the voice of the patient.
So take a proactive step in your own healthcare – and an easy one – check out this app. I swear you’ll never go back to pen and paper again!
