When I turned 19 and started college, I found myself struggling with many problems including:
- brain fog
- chemical sensitivities
- chronic fatigue
- circadian rhythm problems
- food intolerances
- gut biome issues
- vision problems
After years of being a nomad, traveling around the world, making several “top” doctors scratch their head and getting no answers to my health issues, modern medicine had failed me.
I then decided to take a new approach to solving my health issues – by studying epigenetics and psychoneuroimmunology – applying these new principals into improving my health and others.

The Problem With Modern Healthcare and Science
Most doctors are overwhelmed by the epidemic of disease that has risen in the past millennia and this has led to cookie-cutter healthcare and treatment for patients.
They don’t look for the root cause and really heal the person, but just treat the symptoms.
Also, insurance only covers a small percentage of what a person needs and limits a practitioner’s scope of practice and time (that is one reason why I support private pay).
As of 2018, there are over 2.3 million papers being published each year and this number will continue to rise.
This is both good and bad, since there is work being done, but essentially it’s information overload.
On top of that, most “scientific” papers are either funded by big drug companies/corporations or by corrupt government agencies.
This leads to biased work, instead of well-executed and undoctored data.
For example, artificial sweetener industry sponsored reviews are more likely to have favorable results than non-industry sponsored reviews. R
Luckily there are still people out there who want more than just money and support funding of new research and studies that are actually valid, reproducible, double-blind, and peer-reviewed by selective qualified third parties.
Also, the whole system likes to play it safe by doing the same old boring experiments, securing career paths for scientists.
Then with those results, they may “spin” it and sensationalize the same old stuff over again.
Charities are also a problem, as most of the big name charities will only use less than 5% to actually fund research, while the rest of the money gets into the pockets of the big executives, or to fund more advertisements/solicitation to continue this cycle.
When looking at pop-science, it can be hard to tell what is beneficial vs bad since there is most likely a financial interest involved.
For example, usually when one macro, nutrient, hormone, etc is made into a villain (i.e. saturated fat), we’re probably only shown part of the full picture.
This website is about self-healing, biohacking (DIY biology), epigenetics, nutrition, hormones, and more (without any dogma).
My goal is for everyone to become educated.
I wish for everyone to reach their indvidual maximum potential.
I believe if we live in a collaborative society where everyone is living at their best, then we can help mankind in so many ways.

This site, among other things, is a contribution of mine to help the world.
As new research is released, the articles and blog posts will be updated, as needed (so everything here is a WIP).
As of March 2018, this website has referenced 25,000+ studies.
