How to Biohack? What is Biohacking? Biohacking is the practice of engaging biology with the hacker ethic.
I want to talk about why I am not a biohacker.
Curing Cancer, cardiovacular disease, and heart disease are a few of the issues that we face in our health today. Take a moment with me to better understand health issues and why biohacker may cause more problems than solutions.
One of the biggest boosts in health and wellness was our understanding that germs cause illness and our ability to prevent or treat those infections. It was a blessing and a curse. It has given us the idea that things go wrong because of a small reason, and if you change one chemical facet of illness, you can change the illness itself. This concept has led to the whole idea of drug-based therapies for chronic illness.
What if disease was not an error? What if disease was an adaptation, of sorts? What if there were ways our environment, circumstances and our genes were the trigger for disease? The whole concept of thinking is that the body is a dumb machine or empty tool that needs to be biohacked, tweaked or poisoned. This mindset is problematic.
We can adapt to so many conditions, but the real thing we are seeking is to be in a state of flow, balance, harmony and peace. Our function is greatest when we are at ease.
So, it is not about hacking or engineering. It is really about healing.
However, the pitfall lies in thinking of these measurements as the levers in and of themselves, and if we just change them by any means necessary, our health will improve. That is what a lot of what biohacking is about.
So, I think our new trend moving forward is shifting the mindset more than anything. It’s not about what we can hack or measure, but how we can live. We are living in cities by and large. So, in the confines and context of the modern life, how can we thrive again? How can we create a life in which these positive signs of health naturally show up and flourish? That is what healing is all about. That is why I think less about biohacking and more about healing.
