Our online health-tracking tool is already helping people take control of chronic illness. 

Now we want to put it into the hands of even more people by building a companion mobile app. 

To do that, we need your help.

The web-based Chronic Wellness Tracker helps people take control of chronic illness.

Did you know that 50% of the adults in this country have a chronic illness? Chronic illness touches all of us in some way or another. And while chronic illness can take many forms, it often leaves people feeling isolated, powerless, and unsure what to do. But people don't have to feel powerless in the face of chronic illness! 

If you have a chronic illness, the more you know about your symptoms, diet, activities... about which treatments work and which do not... the quicker you'll get better.  To help people on their journey to wellness, we created an online tool that makes it easy to gather and analyze this important data. It's a powerful tracking tool that can foster healing through better self-awareness, knowledge, empowerment, and hope. It's called Chronic Wellness Tracker, and you can try it yourself at cwt.ChronicWellnessTools.com.

Now we are bringing the power of mobile technology to Chronic Wellness Tracker, and we need your help. 

Take a Brief Tour of the Web-based Wellness Tracker.

See how our online tracking tool is helping people on their journey back to health.

It’s working! Each day, more and more people are using our website and discovering the benefits of Chronic Wellness Tracker. Let's help even more people by taking it mobile.

With our mobile app, you will be able to take the benefits of Chronic Wellness Tracker with you wherever you go. 

Preliminary designs for the mobile App.

What's the next step?

If we meet our $27,000 funding goal, we'll be able to create an iOS mobile companion app to our online tracking tool that will run on iPhones and iPads, and perform some valuable upgrades on the online tracker.  This will allow  us to bring tracking to more of the people who need it most. Tracking is more powerful when people can enter and access their information whenever they want and wherever they are.

If we fall short of our goal but raise at least $15,000, we will build a “lite” version of the app that we can later expand into the full version. If we exceed our goal, our plan is to integrate more of our users' "wish list" feature requests, including a practitioner version. If you help really knock our funding out of the park, we can roll out the app to Android too, thereby reaching even more people.

Chronic Wellness Tracker helps people with chronic illnesses to:

  • improve quality of care - communicate more effectively with healt caregivers

  • empower themselves - make decisions based on real information and take the guess work out of care management

  • save money - eliminate ineffective treatments and supplements and avoid unnecessary appointments

  • save energy - focus their limited resources on high-priority issues

  • save time - accelerate their healing journey

The Story of Lindsay's Journey to Chronic Wellness.

"For more than a decade, I experienced mysterious symptoms that forced me to make significant changes to my life. Without a good diagnosis or a treatment plan, I had no idea what was wrong with me, who could help me, or what I could do for myself. Then I discovered an easy-to-use, incredibly effective way to give myself the knowledge and control I needed to get healthy again.

It's called tracking.

Tracking is all about gathering information that helps us learn more about ourselves and our health. I realized that the more I knew about my illness — how my symptoms reacted to things... which treatments worked for me and which did not... the impacts of stress, diet, therapies, and my activities — the sooner I would get back a sense of control and start making real healing progress.

So I tracked -- religiously. But I quickly realized that a huge part of making tracking effective was having a powerful, easy, and convenient way to do it each day.  I tried everything: I journaled, built spreadsheets, used applications. And while I continued to benefit from tracking, I really wanted ONE powerful, easy-to-use tool. I just couldn't find it.

So I teamed up with some friends to design an online tool that would enable people like me to track their symptoms and other factors that affect their health.  And Chronic Wellness Tracker was born.

If you have a chronic illness, Chronic Wellness Tracker can take the power away from your disease and put you back in the driver's seat. It's helped me on my journey back to health. I know it can help you, too."
