Heal Your Body with These Apps

Thomas Jefferson once said, “Our greatest happiness does not depend on the condition of life in which chance has placed us, but is always the result of a good conscience, good health, occupation, and freedom in all just pursuits.”

A healthy body and mind is one of the best keys to happiness that we can find. The healthier we keep our bodies and minds, the better we can fight illnesses and deal with the stress of our daily lives.

Here are three apps that can help you keep track and stay on top of your health:


Maven is an app that allows women to make virtual appointments with doctors, nurse practitioners, therapists, and nutritionists in order to address their health needs. The app also includes a forum where users can share their experiences and give advice to fellow users. Maven is a great health app that can provide you some much needed peace of mind when you can’t get an appointment to see a doctor in person.

According to the app’s description, “We believe that the key to great health is to have an ongoing relationship with your providers, not just one-off ‘fixes.’ That’s why we’ve made it easy to keep the conversation going after your appointment by sending secure private messages to your practitioners, and making it super simple to book a follow-up whenever you need to. And for those questions where you want the experience and support of a community of women like you as well as practitioners, you can ask a question in our free forum.”

Maven is free for download and available on iOS Devices.

Check Yourself!:

Check Yourself! is an app that was created by the Keep A Breast Foundation in order to teach and encourage women to stay informed about their breast health and learn how to perform monthly self-check breast exams. The app not only teaches you how to perform self-examinations, but it also allows you to schedule reminders to check yourself each month.

The app was created in order to help women learn what’s normal for their body so that they can detect changes in breast health and seek out help early. According to its website,Over 300,000 women are diagnosed with breast cancer in the US each year. Approximately 12,000 of those diagnosed are under the age of 40. We believe that through a monthly routine of self-checks more people are likely to detect changes in their bodies quickly, will seek medical advice and potentially detect cancer early. Knowledge is Power!”

Check Yourself! is free for download and available on iOS and Android devices.


HealthTap is an app that works similarly to Maven, in that it will also set you up for a virtual face-to-face consultation with accredited medical professionals. The app provides everyone with free access to doctors who can answer their questions quickly and professionally.

According to the app’s description, “[You can] get instant free answers and help from more than 108,000 top doctors right from your phone or tablet. You can also pay for a virtual consult to video or text chat with a primary care doctor 24/7 or a doctor of your choice during their Virtual Office Hours.”

HealthTap is free for download and available on iOS and Android devices.
