What Is Biohacking?

Biohacking (verb, noun) by Dave Asprey (@Bulletproof):

(v): changing your environment from the inside-out so you have full control of your biology; using your body as your personal laboratory, finding the exact hacks that work for you.

(n) The art and science of becoming superhuman.


So in healthcare this approach could provide a way to deliver individualistic care to suit the biology of the person. Or if they are a biohacker they will likely be very informed of their personal health status and preferences and can drive this personalised approach (#expertpatient)
