Biohacking in the 21st Century – Big Money is into Big Health
I’ve since spent years diving deep into the world of biohacking, from the basics like nutrition consultation, sleep and exercise protocol.
I’ve expanded to more engaged practices like gut biome analysis, blood work, hormone monitoring and extensive supplementation. Depending on my bloodwork, I swallow 40-65 pills a day.
My wife thinks I am nuts.
But the more I dig into this, the more I find like minds.
I challenge you to find the wealthiest people you know If they are at all health conscious, ask them what they are doing right now to extend their healthy life-span.
I make a habit of this.
I don’t ask because I want to learn about new technologies - I probably study this more than most. I ask because I want to spot trends, and follow the money.
I think health-tech will be the biggest bull market of my lifetime.
And if I am going to live to 200 - I need to make a lot more money.
Two weeks ago I was hiking with Chip WIlson, the founder of Lululemon.
Chip has all the money in the world. And spends a portion of it like this:
He has a longevity specialist in San Diego and flies to Tijuana for stem cell injections.
He’s painted the interior of his bedroom with a Wifi blocking paint, providing a safe-haven from wireless signals while he sleeps.
Peter Thiel takes human growth hormone daily and is planning to participate in cryogenic freezing if he dies.
Tim Cook has now stated that “Health will be Apple’s most significant contribution to humanity.”
Google’s largest investment, Calico Labs, has now raised over $2.5 Billion USD to “Increase our understanding of the biology that controls lifespan.”
I am not the trendsetter. But I look at where capital is being deployed, and pay attention.
$2.5 Billion is going to move the needle.
So what can we do at the ground level to live longer, think faster and feel better?
In September I am flying one of the world’s most prolific Biohackers to Vancouver to Keynote at the Extraordinary Future Conference - Ben Greenfield.
