Product Improvements and Data Update Chronicles

Addition of the Recipes to our Knowledgebase and Mobile Apps.

In June 2018, we assessed helpfulness and harmfulness of the most popular healthy recipes from Food Network. We have included the results within our Knowledgebase currently accessible as a new feature within our Choose This Not That series of our Mobile Apps, and through our recently announced Open API. The new Recipes feature will become available to the mobile app users automatically without any need to download a new version of these apps.


Major Knowledgebase Update and New Release of Four Apps.

We released a significant update to our knowledgebase and updated four existing apps: Heart Disease, PCOS, Celiac Disease and Depression. We added Prediabetes as a comorbidity for the above apps. We also added anti-inflammation diet to the Heart Disease. This update automatically becomes available to the users of all the mobile apps in our Choose This not That series.


Major Knowledgebase Update and Support for Interstitial Cystitis.

We released a significant update to our knowledgebase and added dietary and lifestyle support for Interstitial Cystitis (IC) also know as Painful Bladder Syndrome. This update becomes available to the users of all our mobile apps in the Choose This not That series automatically.


Major Upgrade — Support for Autoimmune Disorders.

We have significantly beefed up our knowledgebase on autoimmunity related topics. We have added dietary guidance for two new conditions: Leaky Gut and Microbiome Health. Support for these two topics along with existing guidance on detoxification and anti-inflammation diets represent the most comprehensive approach to prevent and combat autoimmune disorders. Users of existing apps for Crohn’s disease, RA and Celiac Disease have automatic access to all these topics, and updated data. In addition, we have a new app focused on Lupus (SLE) available now at all major app stores. We also updated our data for diabetes type-2 based on the latest available science.


API Test Environment: A very easy to use test environment is now available for our licensing partners to familiarize themselves with some important features available through Personal Remedies API. This API allows licensees to access our knowledgebase, and make use of invaluable health and nutrition information not available anywhere else, for example, “Is this good for me” and “Suggest” capabilities.

The Is This Good for me capability provides an answer to queries such as: Is this food item good for illness, e.g., Is asparagus good for Kidney stones? This feature can also be useful to those web sites and mobile apps that struggle with identifying the helpfulness or harmfulness (to a given health concern) of various ingredients used in recipes that they recommend to their audience.

The Suggest capability provides the answer to queries such as: What are the most helpful food items within a food group for health condition, e.g., suggest the best seeds and nuts for Crohn’s disease?

The goal of the API capability is to make all the content and capabilities of Personal Remedies knowledgebase available to our licensing partners.


Enhancement to our PCOS app in record time! This morning, Jan. 13, 2017, we received an email from a customer suggesting that we add Kidney Stone (oxalate) to our PCOS app as another condition. Within four hours, we added, tested and made this new feature available to all our customers (existing and new) on both iOS and Android platforms! We are not always this good/fast. But since we already had all the needed information in our knowledgebase, and thanks to our team and technology, we were able to accomplish that. All our existing PCOS app users will automatically see this new feature in their apps without the need to download a new release. What can we do for you?


Specific Carbohydrate Diet (SCD): In December 2016, we added guidelines for SCD to three of our apps: Celiac Disease, Crohn’s Disease, and IBS. Creators of the diet report that SCD has helped millions of patients suffering from various forms of bowel disease and other illnesses including: crohn’s disease, ulcerative colitis, celiac disease, diverticulitis, cystic fibrosis, chronic diarrhea, and autism.


Autoimmunity and Detoxification Updates: Our knowledgebase and apps have been updated in the areas related to autoimmune diseases and their relationship to toxins and intestinal permeability (aka “leaky gut syndrome”). Detoxification and anti-inflammation guidelines have been updated and added to a number of apps.


Release 2.6 Roll out (July-August 2016): This is a new and significant update to the prior version of those apps that were released in 2014. Release 2.6 for all such apps are now available at Apple, Google and Amazon app stores. This includes the following apps: Ovarian Cancer, Pancreatic Cancer, Prostate Cancer, Stomach Cancer, Gout, High Blood Pressure, High Cholesterol, Triglycerides,  Vitamin D Deficiency, Breast Cancer, Colon Cancer, Crohn’s Disease, Diabetes Type-2, Obesity, Genital Herpes, IBS, Rheumatoid Arthritis, Ulcers, Cervical Cancer, Esophageal Cancer, Kidney Stones and Lung Cancer.
