WellnessFX Annual Checkup has landed and sure has made a big splash! Our new service (FREE for a limited time) lets you take control of your health by accessing and owning your data.
But what is the experience really like? Sure, it’s free, getting your blood drawn is quick and easy, and you’ll be able to access your health data from the palm of your hand, but is it worth your time?
We say YES. But, of course, do you expect us to suggest any differently? The best way to tell if WellnessFX is for you is through customer experience and word of mouth. We continually bring you these member stories right here on our blog. We encourage you to assess the data for yourself. It’ll be practice for when you get your blood results back!
Last week we brought you the first of four episodes from Tim Ferriss’ phenomenal Building the Perfect Human fireside chat. Part One focused on turning back the clock on aging, tracking the human body, and how medicine will evolve in the next 20 years.
This week’s episode continues the conversation. In classic fireside-style, our CEO Jim Kean, best-selling author Tim Ferriss, and Dr. Justin Mager go on wonderful tangents and side-stories but hold on to the central theme throughout: personalized peak performance.
Specifically, tune in this week to learn about: calorie restriction, antioxidant cycling, food allergies, using whole foods to heal, the master regulatory gene, mitochondria and microbiome, and performance enhancement for the future.
Another great month at WellnessFX! We had an awesome Fireside Chat with Tim Ferriss and Dr. Justin Mager, we opened up in Michigan, and we were named one of the top health apps by Greatist.
Most importantly, we’ve continued offering awesome services to our members. We take feedback very seriously and are grateful to have such a smart, vocal community. All feedback is shared with the entire WellnessFX staff, from engineers to bloggers to even the CEO himself. This encourages everyone to push towards great new ways of putting healthcare back in the hands of the patient. As a bonus, it also encourages and reminds us of WellnessFX’s awesome impact!
Tim Ferriss is a best-selling author, dedicated quantified-selfer, and will most likely be tracking all aspects of his body for the rest of his life. He recently joined WellnessFX CEO Jim Kean and Dr. Justin Mager in San Francisco to talk about all he does to stay young and slow the aging process. People traveled from all over the West Coast just to hear Tim’s hard-earned wisdom and, as one audience member put it, it was more than worth it!
Jim Kean opened up with the question: In 20 years, I’m willing to bet you’ll look the same. How will you do it? An awesome conversation followed.
If you weren’t able to make it out, don’t fret! We had our cameras ready to go and captured the whole talk. Get instant access to what Tim thinks about joint health, hormone levels, optimize performance verses longevity, tracking your biomarkers, and deciphering your diagnostics.
If the 20th century was one of reductionism, the 21st century is all about system biology. Knowing the function of individual parts is important, but so is looking at the body holistically. Every piece affects the other in complex ways.
Think of the body as a factory. DNA, the architect, draws up daily instructions (RNA) to build protein. The body can only use what it’s supplied for this process. Give a factory bad supplies and it will make a bad product. You are what you eat, as the saying goes.
