Hacking Your Biological Puzzle: Lowering Death Risk, Cheap Genetic Testing, Microdosing LSD, And Biohacking The Cannabinoid System — Joe Cohen | #057

Joe Cohen is someone I've been following for years online, and is someone I'm thankful to have interviewed for the Bio Alchemy podcast. Joe is the founder and CEO of SelfHacked (, which in my opinion is one of the most important resources for biohackers online. A phenomenal resource for research materials, informative articles, and just about everything else in between, there's almost nothing you can think of that hasn't been covered in this web-based bible for biohackers.

Joe Cohen says that he won the genetic lottery of bad genes. As a kid, he suffered from inflammation, brain fog, fatigue, digestive problems, anxiety, depression, and other issues that were poorly understood in both conventional and alternative medicine. Frustrated by the lack of good information and tools, Joe decided to embark on a journey of self-experimentation and self-learning to improve his health — an approach that has since become known as “biohacking” as we now know it. With thousands of experiments and pubmed articles under his belt, Joe then founded SelfHacked, the resource that was missing when he needed it. SelfHacked now gets millions of monthly readers. Based on the success that Joe experienced by analyzing his own genetics and lab tests, he went on to develop digital tools such as SelfDecode and LabTestAnalyzer, which have helped over 30,000 people understand how to get healthier from their DNA and labs.

DNA testing is something Joe speaks about extensively in this episode. And what's interesting is that if you ever thought this kind of health tool was out of your reach, you'll likely be very pleasantly surprised -- it's considerably cheaper than you might expect. We also chat in detail about a range of topics, including how Joe healed a plethora of health problems in his own life through biohacking, his results when microdosing LSD and how it makes him 10% happier, one of the natural biohacks involving curcumin that's had a significant effect on his wellbeing, how to lower your risk of overall death, the importance of getting your lab results tested, and so much more.
