Biohacking is a term I am hearing more and more since I started building my own clinic with the best and latest technology: neubie, PEMF, Vibration therapy, and much more. Bio-biology + Hack-illegally break into someone's computer. Just kidding, but not really!!! For this term, it means to tap into one’s own biology and manipulate certain variables for optimal results. It is so fascinating to provide therapy with the latest technology, helping people’s bodies become more efficient with their own processes. In combination with superfood nutrition, meditation, and other modalities you can truly achieve the best you. (see image 1 for various ways to hack into your own biology.)
Conventional rehab often has poor or ordinary outcomes because there is not enough of the right type of encouragement and stimulus. At The ExerScience Center we always inspire through positivity and a mind over matter mentality while biohacking multiple systems to help people heal, adapt, and grow better and at a faster rate than they could have ever imagined. We strive to achieve extraordinary results changing the lives of everyone who walks through our door.
But as a numbers girl and someone who always puts prevention of injury over everything, how do I keep my clients safe while also challenging them to their max? The answer is: monitor their biometrics. Biometrics is the technical term for body measurements and calculations. This data helps people monitor their day to day health with information unique to their physiology providing statistical data. I wanted to find a way to monitor my patients in real-time, so I knew exactly if I was challenging them enough or if they needed an extra boost. This goes way beyond the average pulse ox. I looked into the bio strap and have been loving it so far. It provides biometric insights using a clinical-quality pulse oximeter. Heart Rate, Heart Rate Variability, Oxygen Saturation, Respiratory Rate and in-depth sleep tracking, basic activity tracking, and more! All data is synced and downloaded to your smartphone via their beautiful iOS and Android App. In my day to day, I use this technology to monitor my patients’ biometrics so I can keep them within certain parameters whether due to a surgical protocol or because they are trying to achieve elite status.
Just like the old saying goes, something is better than nothing so, I do utilize an affordable average pulse ox like the Zacurate Pro Series 500DL Fingertip Pulse Oximeter Blood Oxygen Saturation Monitor. Nonetheless, if you want to challenge yourself to the max to truly become your best self is the safest way, know more. Get the biostrap because knowledge is power. The more you know the more you can challenge yourself or you know that moment when your ego won’t let go, but your body and heart literally need you to take a break. To know when or NOT to take the pre-workout because you didn’t recover from last training and maybe dehydrated. Making these judgments are very important when training at the elite level and for anyone who wants to gain insight into their behaviors to create better sleeping routines and patterns through the day to meet their minimum walking requirements, calorie burn, and much more.
I said it before and I will say it again, knowledge is power. Ignorance is NOT bliss because it can kill you if you don’t know what you are doing properly. I have lost dear friends to heart attacks, stroke, or other unknown causes of what seemed to be a healthy athlete.
Be safe and monitor your biometrics.
