5 Most Helpful Health Bots on FB Messenger


Saying health is wealth is like saying an apple a day keeps the doctor away… they may sound like cliched, age-old beliefs yet people do not really realize the importance and truth that these expressions hold. Luckily, there are bots out there that can prioritize our health for us when we forget to value it the most. Here are 5 health bots on Facebook Messenger that handle different aspects of human health:

GYANT  – GYANT is a sophisticated, charming, and handsome (as what he says ?) personal health robot that specializes on information on various medical conditions. You can ask GYANT to examine you for Zika virus, evaluate your prediabetes risk, and check your symptoms for you if you have any health concerns. First GYANT creates your profile by asking about your age and location and then proceeds to ask you a series of questions if you chose to address a health issue. Afterwards, GYANT will interpret your answers according to a database and present you with a disease that matched your symptoms. Finally, GYANT will give you the option to view more information about his analysis, take a recommended course of action, or consult a human doctor. GYANT is especially convenient for people with long-term diseases and disorders that need consistent care and attention but without immediate access to medical help. You can check GYANT out here.

You can talk to Joy any time of the day about how you feel and what’s on your mind. In turn, she will ask you questions about certain aspects of your life such as love and accomplishment and also educate you about mental states like anxiety and depression and then give you tips like how to turn negativity in your life around.
