iPhone App Review: Health Yourself

iPhone App Review: Health Yourself

September 6th, 2010 by

Staying healthy is more than just a matter of going to the gym or running a marathon. It’s also about maintaining a positive attitude, not just about your environment but also about yourself. Mental and spiritual well-being is just as important as keeping your body in shape.

Health Yourself by Kagan Media Net is an app with that same philosophy in mind, intended to give you access to a resource of information on keeping your body, mind, and spirit in top condition.There is a great volume of information within the app itself as well as links to other resources for delving into a topic further.


  • Dozens of topics in the three categories of body, mind, and spirit.
  • Topics covered include disease, addiction, stress, love, general health, and even hair loss.
  • Dozens of additional links on topics such as raw foods, macrobiotics, music, and books for further reading.


When you first start the app you are presented with a daily affirmation, and the option to view an Intro or go to the Home menu. The Home menu gives you the main access to the categories of body, mind, and spirit, as well as direct access to the additional Links and an About page. Each category takes you to a page with further topics, such as “Create Health”, “Disease”, and “Purpose”. Under the Body category there is even a simple health test to rate your overall health.


  • The app is structured intuitively.
  • It’s stable, I didn’t experience a single crash or rendering issue.
  • The app’s articles are detailed enough to be interesting but short enough that you can read them quickly. You’re scrolling just a couple of pages at the most for any given article.


  • Though the app has a lot of great information, it’s basically a string of static pages strung together with links.
  • The app could use more than just information: some way to keep a journal, more interaction such as having programs for personal improvement in each category, basically some way to actually interact with the app rather than just read the pages.
  • A search feature is, in my opinion, necessary in an app like this.

Bottom Line

Health Yourself is a good resource if you are seeking information thoughts on getting and staying healthy. Though most of the information would fall into the “alternative medicine” or “new age” category, most of it is very compelling and could even be considered common sense if you’re not into “new age” spirituality.

One note about the price: I hate that $4.99 is a high app price these days, but that’s just the reality of the app store. A price tag like that is a bit high for something that’s basically a hyperlinked document.

All in all though, if this is the kind of information you’re after, Health Yourself could be a great portable resource and daily reminder about how to stay healthy in all aspects of your life.

    I created Health Yourself as a centralized document to help people increase their knowledge and confidence when it comes to creating health. It's helped my family stay away from doctors for a very long time.

    Lowered the price through the end of '10 to $3.99. Please download and rate it!
