In the case of fitness some examples of biohacking include drinking caffeine to give you energy during a workout. Or taking branch chain amino acids after a workout to enhance muscle repair and hypertrophy. Or using kinesiology tape to enhance proprioceptive stimulation and muscle activation.
One area of biohacking that I am particularly a fan of is the application of barefoot science to improve your workout. As I mentioned at the start of this blog the one thing we never have enough of is TIME.
By integrating barefoot training into your workout you will hack your way into a more efficient workout allowing you to achieve faster fitness goals. Below are my top 4 biohacks integrating barefoot science.
To biohack your nervous system whenever you are barefoot training integrate small nerve plantar stimulation with Naboso Technology. Whenever performing barefoot exercises such as short foot or any foot to core sequencing this is the perfect opportunity to pull out your Naboso Barefoot Training Mat.
This webinar on Femtech and Female Biohacking will look at these gains and what it means for women now and those of the future. In addition, you will learn practical ways and tools to start your personal biohacking today.

Rev. Karen E. Herrick, PhD, LCSW, guides a study into alternative modalities addressing the grieving process. Participants will identify persistent grief and complex associated features that may be present after loss of a loved one, learn ways to support clients who may seek new or uncommon interventions for grief with sensitivity in a non-judgmental manner, while remaining true to professional standards of practice, as well as contemplate possible benefits and drawbacks when clients seek unconventional spirituality-based consultation for assistance with grief and mourning. *This webinar is live, real-time and interactive. Participants will earn 2 CE Credits.*
In 2017, Josiah Zayner live-streamed himself injecting a gene therapy construct designed to edit the DNA in his muscle cells to give him bigger muscles. This moment was noteworthy because the gene therapy construct had been created entirely by Zayner in his garage laboratory. Such work is called biohacking or DIY biology.
What is Biohacking?Zayner is not alone; in fact, the biohacking movement is growing across the country. Zayner also sells kits that allow other biohackers to experiment with DNA and gene editing from his website, The Odin. There are also laboratories across the country that allow interested people to have space to conduct biology experiments without having to build a home laboratory.
Each type of biohacking brings its own risks and rewards. This blog post will focus on genetic modification of cells using new gene editing techniques such as CRISPR. Advances in gene editing technology over the past five years have made accessible science that was once confined to expensive, high-technology laboratories. For a broader look at CRISPR and gene editing by researchers and bio-hackers, Netflix has a new documentary series, Unnatural Selection.
Benefits of BiohackingFirst and foremost, the benefit of biohacking is access to science. Not everyone can afford an advanced degree biology or wants to work full time in a laboratory. Biohacking democratizes science for people who have a passion for learning about the world and how it works. It also has the potential to increase access to medicine. One endeavor, the Open Insulin Project, attempts to find a cheaper and intellectual property-free way to produce and distribute insulin to make it available to people who have a hard time affording the drug.
In addition to access, biohacking communities are also hubs of outreach and education. The laboratory spaces often hold classes and meeting spaces for like-minded individuals to network. There are competitions that bring together student and citizen scientist teams who work on using synthetic biology to create biological solutions to local and international problems.
Risks of BiohackingAlthough biohacking has many benefits, there are risks of which the world and individual citizen scientists should be aware. Perhaps the largest potential threats are the lack of education and regulation within the biohacking community.
While Josiah Zaynor holds a PhD in biopohysics, not all biohackers are so well educated. Community laboratories help with classes and mutual support, but home-based biohackers must rely on their own knowledge and understanding, though websites are available for questions and discussions. Education and outreach to biohackers is also the strategy of the FBI in recent years, though many biohackers are reticent to accept its help. Additionally, while the community does have a code of ethics, there is little formal ethics training in concepts such as informed consent or using animals in research.
Due to the open definition and decentralized structure of biohacking, regulation is almost impossible. Lack of regulation leaves laboratory safety in the hands of the biohackers. As with any scientific endeavor involving genetic engineering, accidents can occur that could lead to the release of environmentally destructive organisms. Biohackers injecting themselves or others could cause any number of infections or adverse reactions. Additionally, the risk of the development of dangerous or ineffective gene therapies and other products by biohackers has led the Food and Drug Administration to issue warnings to the public about untested products. This risk is especially relevant in an era of rising drug costs.
I appreciate your post. This was a topic that I did not know existed, but has a great impact on the world of medicine. We often hear about the expenses that come with accessibility to affordable medication. I am curious on your thoughts about the future of biohacking. Do you think that this is a treatment we can predict to see frequently in the future of medicine? If so, how do you think it would impact modern medical practices?
One area in which biohacking may have it greatest impact on medical practice is if the community can get together in such as way to find low cost solutions for access to medicine. The Open Insulin Project is one such initiative.
Biohacking may help to close that gap by developing open source treatments, but I suspect that biohacking developments may progress to general population level therapies slower than other therapies due to the lack of infrastructure.
Hi Dr. Carter-Johnson,First of all, thank you for sharing this enlightening blog post. I am a graduate student in the MSW program here and admittedly, I had not heard of biohacking until I read your blog post. My immediate reaction was concern. You mentioned that there is not much regulation on biohacking and this concerns me because, while I love the idea of people taking charge of science, there may be a chance for biohacking to be more harmful than helpful. Do you have any suggestions on ways that they could regulate this more? If so, how would biohacking be regulated while still respecting the primary idea of autonomy behind biohacking? It sounds like the whole point behind biohacking is that it gives everyone the opportunity to participate in science. Overall, this was a very informative post about a subject I was not aware of, so thank you for sharing your insight on the matter!

The short answer to my supplement choices is that I like experimenting on myself (biohacking). The other answer is my purpose: I make supplement choices to help my body remove toxins, keep my inherent nature towards inflammation under control, and to maintain and enhance my brain cells responsible for processing and cognition.
I take extra bone health supplements (five days a week), extra garlic extracts for cardiovascular health (3-5 times a week), omega 3s (daily), and peptides (TB4-Frag and BPC 157) for immune enhancement, inflammation and cognition (five days a week) in regard to biohacking diet. I tried wheat germ extract for a few months and did not feel a change. I take hemp oil about five days a week, and tumeric (high dose) daily. 041b061a72
