~ Current Series ~

100 Interviews with 100 Major Influencers

 

Today on the podcast we are joined by Joe Cohen, the founder of SelfHacked.com, one of the most recognized and trusted sources for natural health research on the planet. Everything that they put online about health is backed by evidence and medically reviewed. The SelfHacked library delivers sustainable solutions for optimal health performance and anti-aging. 

 Joe and I, recently met in Croatia and he's a really smart guy. He spent years of his life sick suffering from inflammation, brain fog, fatigue, digestive problems, anxiety, depression and other issues that were poorly understood in both conventional and alternative medicine. He was frustrated by this and he was frustrated by the lack of good information that was out there. So he started on his own personal journey of self experimentation and learning, and after years of experiments, he finally healed himself. Then he found that this online resource called SelfHacked.com that after only four years gets millions of monthly readers. Joe is a thriving entrepreneur, author and speaker. He's also the CEO and founder of Self Decode, and Lab Test Analyzer. What is really cool with Self Decode is that they analyze your DNA and then give you the results back suggesting areas where your health may be at risk or things that may come up for you in the future.

 Joe’s mission is to help people gain access to the most up to date unbiased and science based research and information to optimize your health. It was a fun interview and we got a lot of time to dig in deep understanding biohacking from Joe's perspective. We chatted with Joe about Self Decode and Self Hacked. We talked about Joe's diet and routine, how Joe manages influence and what drives him. Later in the show we chat more about using biohacking to optimize mentality.
