Vancouver-based WholeLife launch Blood Sugar App to support Individuals with Diabetes
Vancouver-based WholeLife Holistic Nutrition Inc. launched a new additionÂ to their current collection of apps that deliver daily, personalized nutritionalÂ products and services. The app, Blood Sugar will be available through the AppleÂ App Store. Says CEO and Founder of WholeLife, Darlene Higbee Clarkin, â€œWe wishÂ to provide accessibility and make it affordable for consumers to receive the mostÂ up-to-date, leading-edge recommendations that will be both preventative andÂ therapeutic in the fight against type 2 diabetes.â€
The apps, coupled with the myWholeLife.ca website offer accessible, professionalÂ nutritional advice at a fraction of the cost of one-on-one consultations. To the 9Â million in Canada and over 28.5 million people in the United States diagnosedÂ with diabetes or pre-diabetes, the app provides a unique, personal platform forÂ information to help prevent and manage complications from the disease.
Taking an integrative, holistic approach, Blood Sugar acts as a diet and lifestyleÂ toolkit that helps users maintain an optimum blood level balance by creating aÂ nutritional guide backed by leading-edge science. Featuring top foods, supplements,Â and realistic suggestions that can be easily implemented into everyday life, BloodÂ Sugar helps to bridge the gap between Western and holistic medicine, delivering aÂ personal holistic nutritionist to your fingertips. With the purchase of the app you receive a 7-day meal plan, 21 recipes and snacks that incorporate simple, everyday
whole food ingredients presented in the nutritional guide. The easy to use interface also offers the option to create, save and print a customized shopping list based on recommended Top Foods, supplements, and ingredients from the weekâ€™s meal plan. The App also offers â€œHealthy Swapâ€ suggestions such as replacing refined wheat products with whole grain varieties for simple changes that easily fit into usersâ€™ lifestyles.
With individuals living with diabetes incurring medical costs between $1000 and $15 000 each year, using the Blood Sugar App, especially as a preventative measure, can help users to mitigate both future direct and indirect health care costs.
Blood Sugar is the second app to be released in the myWholeLife collection, joining myWholeLife Quick Tips, which provides users with daily nutritional â€œtipsâ€. Through use of the myWholeLife website and apps, Higbee Clarkinâ€™s hopes to â€œuse education to get people to use food to improve their medical symptoms and enhance the effects of the medication they might be on.â€
The app will be available for $2.99 at the Apple App store.
