Why you should believe this
I'm basically a hacker. I like to figure out how things work. I've done it with complex networks for years, and a few years ago, I realized I could "troubleshoot" my own body to prevent or solve health problems. It all started when I read something about how to cure the painful canker sores I used to get in my throat. They plagued me growing up and showed no signs of abating. I learned that canker sores are often caused by a deficiency in B vitamins. I bought a cheap B-complex vitamin and haven't had canker sores ever since. From that time, I slowly started to read more publications - magazines, books, and web sites. I tried what I read to see what would work. I changed my diet and lost 50 pounds in 3 months. The side effect was that I was calmer, more focused, and had more energy. I began to study to find what I could do to get even more energy and mental focus without using stimulants or anything that causes long term damage. For a more dramatic explanation of how I've changed, read this short page.
|After about 5 years and
countless books and subscriptions, I am an extropian -- I support the scientific goal of
using technology to extend life span, not just cure disease. I also believe
technology can help to improve the "equipment" we were born with, and I actively
manage many facets of my biochemistry.
This web site is my attempt to share how I do it, with the goal of
answering many of the questions I hear from friends and family. I also hope
that others seeking to do what I've done can use this site as a starting point.
There is no question that anyone can dramatically improve the quality of their life
with some of the things I talk about here.
Welcome. If you have any questions, feel free to send me an email, even if I don't know you. I'll answer it if I can.
