It’s important to be happy and healthy! This lesson will contrast between health and wellness as well as what the different dimension of wellness are and how they interact.
Being Healthy and Happy
People exercise to be healthy. Others choose to drink to one’s health. There is always a new diet or health fad every single year in the world of nutrition or exercise. But rarely do we hear of wellness fads or exercising to be well. It’s all about health. Is there a difference between health and wellness?
Health, Wellness, and Risk Factors
Health is defined as the overall mental and physical state of a person; the absence of disease.
This isn’t entirely the same thing as wellness. Wellness refers to the state of being in optimal mental and physical health.
But wellness is more than that. It’s about living a life full of personal responsibility and therefore taking proactive steps for one’s entire well-being.
This means that a person living life very well controls risk factors that can harm them. Risk factors are different types of actions or conditions that increase a person’s chances for illness or injury.
Let’s take a look at just some risk factors. Smoking is a risk factor. It is a risk factor for developing lung cancer among many other terrible problems. Mountain climbing is a risk factor. It is a risk factor for everything from broken bones to a swollen brain.
Alcohol is a risk factor. It is a risk factor for developing liver damage. Unprotected sex is a risk factor as well. We all know that you can get some very nasty sexually transmitted diseases with unprotected sex, including HIV.
ABOUT THE ZEALEUM PLATFORM
The Zealeum platform connects individuals, businesses and service providers together to improve global health & wellness across all aspects of the industry. One of the key value propositions of the Zealeum platform is the Zealeum Health Profile. The user’s Health Profile will contain a user’s entire medical history which includes, but is not limited to Surgical History, Family History, Medication, Medical encounters, Immunization History, Medical Allergies, Test Results, Orders and Prescriptions.
THE OBJECTIVE OF ZEALEUM
Zealeum’s main objective is to monetize and incentivize data and healthy living through the Zealeum Token. Users will be able to earn token rewards for healthy lifestyle choices. They can earn Zeal Tokens by visiting health and wellness centers in their region.
The wallet functions as a gateway to the ecosystem and allows its users to create their own personal profile, input and track their health and wellness data and connect it to their favourite fitness and health tracking apps.
The objective of Zealeum health profile is to solve the problem of medical records which cannot be easily transferred across different institutions. Zealeum Health Profiles are transferable, secure, reliable, transparent, and easily accessible given permission.
ZEALEUM WALLET AND BLOCKCHAIN
A blockchain is a digitized, decentralized, public ledger of all cryptocurrency transactions. Constantly growing as ‘completed’ blocks (the most recent transactions) are recorded and added to it in chronological order, it allows market participants to keep track of digital currency transactions without central recordkeeping. Each node (a computer connected to the network) gets a copy of the blockchain, which is downloaded automatically.
It is said that blockchain has the ability to drastically improve the global wellness industry in the following ways: improving data security, data sharing, interoperability, patient engagement, big data analytics, health information exchange, fghting counterfeit drugs, R&D diagnostics, AI-based diagnostics, and more. It has also been predicted that within five years, blockchain-based healthcare systems will be the new norm for the sector.
Zealeum wallet and Ethereum blockchain allow for an incentivized, rewards-based ecosystem which serves to “gamify” everyday aspects of people’s lives. Zealeum’s main goal is to monetize and incentivize data and healthy living through the Zealeum Token. On top of the rewards mechanisms, data generated by and manually input by customers will automatically be securely stored through industry standard encryption methods and can only be accessed through the use of smart contracts enabled by the Zealeum platform. The personal data submitted via Zealeum health & wellness wallet will be accessible to its user and can be viewed or shared by “storing a permission” on the blockchain which complies with data privacy laws making it a powerful service for data-driven companies which will not have to develop their own system including user’s consent for their data usage.
HOW THE ZEALEUM PLATFORM WORKS
Users register and create a health profile where they can store, view, share and sell their data.
Users have the ability to connect their profiles to their favourite fitness & health tracking apps and wearables, allowing them to track data from a wide variety of sources and aggregate and analyze data within a user-friendly interface.
Users set their own privacy rights and choose exactly which information they would allow to be shared or sold.
The generated data is transferable, secure, and tamper-resistant.
Zealeum’s health profiles allow professionals such as nutritionists and fitness trainers to create personalized nutrition and workout plans based on the information shared with them from each specific user, allowing them to create custom-tailored solutions.
Users earn ZEAL Tokens by making healthy lifestyle choices. For example, users can earn ZEAL Tokens by purchasing online products on the Zealeum platform, by purchasing personalized meal or workout plans provided by professionals, for participating in a marathon, for visiting a fitness center or a vegan restaurant, and much more.
Individuals on the platform can also receive ZEAL tokens for simply showing up to a designated location or participating in a specific fitness event sponsored by a Zealeum partner.
Zealeum ecosystem participants can also use the ZEAL Tokens as a form of payment to purchase a wide variety of products and services from the businesses and service providers within the community ecosystem.
The Zealeum Platform creates, stores and constantly updates every users’ digital profile which will include metadata and data that paints a full picture of who each user is in terms of their identity, their health and their fitness profile.
Through the token, users on the platform can package and sell their data to companies or fitness professionals interested in viewing or leveraging that data.
Users will not have their data available on the Zealeum marketplace unless they check boxes indicating they would like to receive ZEAL in exchange for their information.
Users are alerted with a request for data whenever there is interest from a professional or information broker.
Zealeum’s health profile is a very valuable asset in the growing Internet of things which can help to solve several issues with the lethargic health industry; a transferable, secure, tamper-resistant health profile with data that can be seamlessly shared through a distributed ledger with doctors, insurance companies, nutritionists, and more.
The potential for individuals as well as health insurance companies, health care providers, doctors, fitness trainers, nutritionists and several other network participants to be positively benefited in such an ecosystem is what drives the Zealeum project.
