When you face a medical problem such as a headache, you may not always know what to do. Sure, you can look for remedies online, but they may not always work. You want access to legitimate information, which will help relieve the health problem you are facing at the moment. On top of that, you don’t want to consume medicines, as you know they aren’t good for you in the long run. In this situation, what do you do?
Lenia is a personal health assistant, designed to help you find solutions to these types of problems. At present, it can understand English and Turkish. The chatbot is available on both iOS and Facebook Messenger. Let us take a closer look at Lenia to understand how this bot functions.
In this review, we will be taking a look at this chatbot on Facebook Messenger, as this platform has billions of active users. Once you find this bot on this messaging service, you need to send a text to start interacting with the bot.
Do keep in mind that this bot uses natural language processing. Due to this reason, there aren’t any options available in the chat. You need to enter the text, which the chatbot will understand. At first, Lenia gives you a description of its services, along with what to expect.
According to the chatbot, it provides answers to various health issues. It encourages you to ask questions regarding the problems you are facing at the moment. First, we informed the chatbot that we are suffering from a headache. The bot asks a series of questions, to understand the gravity of the situation.
For instance, it will ask you if the headache is on one side or both sides. Next, it will ask you if it occurs during periods of stress along with whether the pain is throbbing. Depending on how you answer the questions, the chatbot will tell you what is the possible reason for your health problem. In this case, the bot informed us that we were suffering from vasculitis. The chatbot provided a link where we could learn more about this problem.
At the same time, the bot recommends a list of things you should follow to ensure you recover from the problem faster. For instance, the bot will tell you to drink at least two cups of herbal tea and consume meals which contain carbohydrates, vegetables, fruits, and protein. At the same time, we should wear sunglasses and pay attention to our posture to reduce the symptoms that arise with this type of health condition.
We tried another test to see what the chatbot would recommend. When Lenia got to know that the health problem was fever, it asked a series of questions, to understand the nature of the issue. For instance, it will find out if you have nausea, stomach ache, diarrhea, urinary tract burning, cold, and muscle pain, to name a few.
If the chatbot is unable to identify what you are suffering from, based on your answers, it will let you know. At the same time, the bot will provide general advice, which should help you with the problem you are facing at the moment.
One excellent feature of the chatbot is that it will ask you about your previous health issue when you start another conversation. The boot likes to know whether the information it provided helped in resolving the issue.
At the same time, the bot also provides information about different types of headaches. It gives you a detailed description of these problems, such as the symptoms you will face. Lenia tells you what you shouldn’t consume, along with activities to avoid, so that it doesn’t aggravate the issue. The chatbot also suggests home remedies you can follow, which helps alleviate the problem.
Even when making general statements, such as “your leg is paining,” the chatbot doesn’t get stuck in a loop. It understands the problem and starts to ask questions to identify the root cause of the problem. In this case, the chatbot will explain the reason why you are facing the problem. At the same time, it will inform you what you should consume and how it can help you resolve the health issue as soon as possible.
Lenia is a great personal assistant chatbot available on Facebook Messenger and iOS devices. You can ask any question, and the bot will understand the health issue you are facing at the moment. Even general statements work, thanks to the excellent programming by the developers of Lenia. It provides natural remedies you can follow, to alleviate the symptoms of the disease. The chatbot is responsive and quick at all times.
