Personalized Health and Wellness Solutions Continue to Drive Business Success

Personalized health and wellness provide tailored solutions based on a person’s unique clinical data, lifestyle preferences, and personal health goals. The benefits of customization include getting better outcomes, enhanced consistency, and faster healing from illnesses.

Below are four personalized health and wellness solutions currently dominating the market:

  1. Fitness Trackers

Fitness trackers are wearable devices that track a person’s physical activity and body reactions. The trackers constantly monitor movement patterns, intensity, duration, and frequency through a three-axis accelerometer. In addition, advanced devices monitor heart rate, stress, and pulse.

These trackers have technological features that include integrated GPS, blood-oxygen sensors, Alexa connectivity, Spotify support, and innovative payment options.

For a tracker to work effectively, one has to program it with personal information, including weight, gender, and height. Then, the tracker uses an algorithm to process this data and provide users with the statistics through their smartphone or computer.

The wearable device helps people set personal fitness goals, such as steps taken or calories burned daily. Other benefits include monitoring rest time, showing users progress for motivation, and helping people share their stats on social media.

Examples of fitness trackers include:

  • Fitbit Charge 4
  • Coros Apex
  • Apple Watch 6
  • Polar Grit X
  • Wyze Band
  1. At-Home Testing

At-home testing kits offer accurate symptom diagnosis and information privacy. Also, they minimize the hassle of visiting the hospital constantly.

An example is an allergy test kit that detects food sensitivities by using DNA or hair. The test screens for IgE and IgG4 antibodies. It is best to use undiagnosed symptoms, such as skin rashes, vomiting, itching, migraines, and IBS.

Kits also test for transmitted infections, allowing for greater privacy. One orders the equipment online, takes the sample, and gets results via email or text message.

STI Panel 1 tests for gonorrhea and chlamydia through a urine sample, and STI Panel 3 tests for HIV, syphilis, and trichomoniasis.

At-home gastrointestinal tests help people rule out severe medical conditions. An

One example is the food poisoning test which uses a stool sample to analyze toxic bacteria levels.

Other confidential at-home tests include hormone, menstrual cycle, pregnancy, diabetes, thyroid monitoring, iron screening, adrenal, liver health, Vitamin D, cholesterol tests, and COVID-19.

  1. Nutrition Plans

A personalized meal plan considers factors including health history, health goals, food allergies and preferences, budget, living conditions, and blood pressure to create practical eating habits that will lead to a long-term lifestyle change.

The tailored nutrition plan supports weight loss because it is better nutritionally balanced, therefore recommends healthy fats, carbohydrates, and vegetables, and proteins in the right quantities. It also doesn’t require calorie counting, which is exhausting.

If one wants to go on a diet, there are varieties, including keto, Mediterranean, and vegan diets. There are also diets where one can still eat their favorite food, such as cake and chips.

To boost their success rates, customized meal plans work for your body and provide support. They are also adjustable as needs change.

Using a registered dietitian is the best option, but there are apps available, such as Paprika, which generates grocery lists and customizes recipes.

Another app is MealPrepPro, which syncs with fitness devices, creates shopping lists, and provides nutritional information on recipes. PlateJoy is an app with accommodations for people on low FODMAP plans or with diabetes.

  1. Customized Exercise

Customized workout routines have become more popular because they are more accessible. Health coaches and physical therapists develop exercises based on an individual’s age, medical conditions, nutrition strategies, lifestyle, gender, goals, and pain levels.

Personalized exercise habits trigger actions that build self-efficacy, self-confidence, and maintained workouts. For example, if a person has a busy life, they can get a plan for short at-home workouts. If the goal is weight loss or muscle building, a personal trainer gives you bodyweight or resistance training activities.

Customized workouts ensure people only do what they enjoy, such as hiking, dance, rock climbing, yoga, and running.
