SHIFT TO WELLNESS 2.0 BEGINS HERE
At Why The Health Not?™, we believe there’s more to whole-person wellness than taking a handful of vitamins or drinking a green juice. We also believe our current SICK CARE model must be transformed into true HEALTH CARE. How can we do this? We already are.
Digital Health Leads The Way
We’ve been trained to seek medical and wellness attention after we get sick, for treatment and follow-up exams. Many preventative and wellness diagnostic tests are only covered after acute illness has already diminished our health. This defensive stance leaves us in a weaker position to regain wellness for the remainder of our lives.
Our current SICK CARE model looks something like this:
- difficult to schedule
- requires transportation
- requires major flexibility in work schedules
- happens after acute symptoms occur
Health insurance is the prerequisite to receiving professional care. In fact, it should be the last resort—as it was originally intended. Digital health solutions are empowering patients interested in real wellness, an offensive approach with greater interaction and personalized treatment from health care providers.
WTHN has created an online platform for smart devices that pairs doctors and wellness professionals with patients. A real-time, wellness ecosystem, tailored to patient-specific criteria in a HIPAA-compliant, whole-person health app. We believe in the power of preventative care, by measuring your health one day at a time. Our platform will also give members access to a massive referral network of qualified professionals who know what the health they’re talking about so you’re never alone in your quest for whole person wellness.

Health Tracking 6 Pillars of Wellness
Imagine being able to track the major components of our wellness or sickness. Wouldn’t it be awesome to take charge of that while we’re healthy? If we monitor our whole person, as defined by the 6 Pillars of Wellness, we can better predict the need for professional help—and make smarter decisions when we do.
- What would a map of your personal pillars look like?
- Track your physical, spiritual, financial, emotional, intellectual, and social wellbeing on a daily basis.
- “Gamify” your path to wellness with rewards and interaction.
Even more options are in development in our new Health Oriented Pairing Engine (our HOPE app). All features are geared toward engagement, which is how goals become realities. Our HOPE app will allow healthcare professionals to see more patients at a lower fee. And you can take control of your healthcare by tracking your progress on the 6 Pillars of Wellness. Success will be in the palm of your hands!

Physical Wellness Starts Your Path To Awesomeness
In order to understand how to thrive and not just live, start on The Path To Awesomeness with an understanding of the 6 Pillars of Wellness. What are they and how do they work together to create a whole-person approach to true health care? The 6 Pillars address the primary categories that support the most important aspects of healthy, happy human beings. Mapping your wellness among the 6 Pillars helps ensure you are maximizing your life. Let’s start with the basics.
Emotional Wellness Begins With A Proactive Approach
Emotional Wellness Pillar by Why The Health Not?Emotional wellness is the pillar that supports your mental health—and your ability to understand how and why you feel the way you do. It’s perhaps the least understood of our 6 Pillars of Wellness. But being aware of your feelings is not enough. It’s also important to understand how your feelings affect your day-to-day life, and how forces beyond your control impact emotional wellness.
Social Wellness Is About Relationships
Social wellness by Why The Health Not?Social media would have you believe social wellness is defined by how many likes, shares, and followers you get in an hour, a day, a week. If being judged by the pictures of your food and your pet were the criteria, they might be correct. Yeah . . . No. […] It’s not measured by how many friends you have, or how often you engage in activities, but rather how your relationships and activities are fulfilling your needs. And only you can determine what your social needs are. Let’s take a look at the underlying factors that define your social needs. How many can you relate to?
Intellectual Wellness Means Exercising Your Cognitive Powers
Intellectual Wellness by Why The Health Not?™If you’re reading even this first line, chances are your intellectual wellness is already pretty solid because you’re curious about it. The fact that you want to learn more about your wellness indicates you have a thirst for knowledge. And that’s awesome! […] It’s important to understand that intelligence isn’t defined by how much you know. Intellectual wellness measures your willingness and ability to learn and apply new concepts to your everyday life. This one pillar of wellness should support the other five.
Financial Wellness: A Key Ingredient To Whole Health
Financial Wellness by Why The Health Not?™“Money can’t buy you happiness, but it can buy you spritzers, and spritzers make you happy.” We’re not sure who said that, but we agree that money can’t buy you happiness. Understanding how to be financially healthy, however, makes it easier to be happy. Don’t define your financial wellness by the average balance in your bank account. Measure it by your ability to understand how to make your finances work for you so you can achieve your life goals. Let’s be honest: Without a decent income or a cushion for savings or retirement, life goals are hard to achieve. And working toward them without a plan can be very stressful.
Spiritual Wellness: Expand Your Mind, Fill Your Soul
Spiritual Wellness by Why The Health Not? Spiritual wellness is not only a matter of faith—though we hope you’ll have some faith in the power of this pillar of wellness. Of course, many peg spirituality to religious faith, an opportunity to be part of a large organization of believers. But that doesn’t mean you can’t have spiritual wellness without religion. Faith offers different things to different people. Tolerance and appreciation of these differences is the ultimate in spirituality.
