This Black Founder’s Autoimmune Disorder Led Her To Start A Health And Wellness Start-Up

Nzingah Oniwosan first created her 365zing App, which centralizes features found on individual apps into one location to help Black women get on track with their health goals, when she realized she struggled with her own self-care.

Ms. Oniwason, the daughter of parents who immigrated from Haiti, found difficulty with staying on track with her self-care for 19 years, trying anything and everything to keep on track when it came to her mental, physical, and spiritual health.

She found things that helped in one area but not overall, and that’s when she decided to immerse herself in research and certifications.

Fifteen years later, she had unlocked new insights and technology about self-care and formed 365zing.

What is the app about?

365zing allows you to work on your mind, body, and spirit all in one place.

It is a self-care companion that claims to make it easy for black women from 28 years and upward to have sustainable wellness practices to avoid feeling unbalanced.

How does it work?

You use the app to get on track with your health goals. The app will allow you to select a healthy meal plan, take yoga classes, and ground yourself with mindfulness practices and meditation.

How much does it cost?

If you choose to monthly, your payment of $50 gets you access to the app recipes, workouts, courses, and community, plus an onboarding session with the founder.

What’s the founder like?

“Thirty years ago I got diagnosed with a brain tumor, PCOs, an autoimmune disorder, and I was essentially told that in some cases with what I was dealing with, that there was nothing that I could do, except to just to deal with the disease,” said Oniwosan in an interview with AfroTech.

“As I was doing this work, I started to build my own holistic practice, and I thought about the women and men that I was servicing,” she said. Then I realized that a lot of them would not be as fortunate as I was to sift through all of the information that’s there or even find the right people to guide them through that journey.”
