Dave framed the conference with this quote:
“It always seems impossible until it’s done.” – Nelson Mandela.

It’s become a full-time obsession for some people, particularly millionaires and billionaires. I ask the question: Do we lose the art of actually living when we are so consumed with our health and tracking everything we do? Are we really well as human ‘beings’ if we are constantly striving and hustling for health? There has to be a tipping point.

And with the world in its current state and the destruction of people and the planet, do we really want to witness more of this?

I most definitely don’t want to live to 180, but I would like to live a long, active, healthy life.

The conference explored all aspects of hacking our biology for better health outcomes and longevity. Pro-ageing is about minimising cell damage. The field of epigenetics supports Biohacking as it sits in this space, alongside the concept of bio-individuality.

Personalised health using AI is the future of longevity.

3000 people from all over the world gathered this week for the 10th annual Biohacking Conference in Dallas to find out how we can extend our biological age. There were people of all ages—kids, teenagers, people in their 70s and 80s, and everything in between. Small dogs were also allowed to check out the latest biohacking technologies, but only as voyeurs; no animals were harmed by any biohacking technologies :)

It was awesome people-watching. We had tech billionaires and millionaires who had sold their AI businesses, entrepreneurs, moms and

daughters, couples, dads and daughters, and even some Burning Man peeps all dressed up in their robes. There were lots of out-there characters alongside regular people looking for solutions to improve their health. Surprisingly, there was a distinct lack of pumped-up gym junkies.

There were only three of us from Australia representing the Biohacking movement, which is starting to gain traction and curiosity. The lovely Azra from Biohackher based on the Gold Coast, Adam from Optimise Your Health, and myself, Biohackme. It was a long 17-hour flight to get there for four nights, and jet lag was a challenge, but it was most definitely worth it. I went to learn more about the science behind Biohacking, curious and open to all the new things it has to offer.

The Biohacking movement is booming in the US and has been for years. The health industry generates $63 billion a year in the US, and Asia and Europe are also heavily invested. We’re hoping to hold a Biohacking Summit in 2025 to bring more awareness and accessibility for Aussies.

Some key highlights were seeing the incredible Joe Dispenza on stage, getting up close and personal with Dr. Will Cole (total health fangirl crushing on him; he’s such a fountain of knowledge—watch this space, we’re hopefully bringing him to Australia next year), Peter Crone, Gabby Bernstein, Dr. Sara Gottfried, Dr. Amen (legend), and the list goes on.

We had some incredible doctors like Dr. Adeel Khan talking about the latest in stem cell therapy. He discussed the controversial editing of embryos that a doctor in China was jailed for. Gene therapy and engineering stem cells are fascinating and definitely the future of longevity, especially for people predisposed to certain illnesses through their genes. It’s currently only legal in Mexico, Thailand, Dubai, and Tokyo, which are leading the world in this field.

Bryan Johnson joined us live, looking like an AI version of himself—or is that just himself? He really is on a mission, wearing his ‘Don’t Die’ T- shirt.

Biohacking your environment was a common thread that nearly every speaker mentioned, particularly mould and other toxins found in our homes. Dr. Jill, who has presented in Australia, has been leading the world with her research into biotoxin illness. Air and water quality are

key to longevity, and reducing exposure to chemicals and processed foods to embrace a low-tox lifestyle is crucial.

Being in nature, especially forest bathing, was also a common theme among many facilitators. It’s ironic, though, that we spent four days in the concrete jungle of downtown Dallas with no fresh air or sunlight. This was one of my biggest challenges, as I’m so used to having access to these simple energy and life givers. Technology has its place, but nature trumps it all.

The danger of EMF exposure was also a recurring theme. So much research has been done and is currently being conducted in this space, though we get limited access to this due to the controversy surrounding it. The takeaway is that we just have to protect ourselves and minimise exposure, as it’s not going away—only getting more prevalent and stronger. Turning your Wi-Fi off at night and putting your phone on airplane mode are two easy ways to protect yourself.
