We want to provide you with the information you need to help you overcome your chronic health issues that aren't addressed by conventional medicine.
SelfHacked is also a citizen science movement. Our articles, books, and software provide the information that you can use to self-experiment based on your goals and physiology. Everyone is different and your goal should be to find out what works best for you.

Joe Cohen 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--something that has since become known as “biohacking”. With thousands of experiments and pubmed articles under his belt, Joe 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.
Joe is a thriving entrepreneur, author and speaker. He is the CEO of SelfHacked, SelfDecode and LabTestAnalyzer.
His mission is to help people gain access to the most up-to-date, unbiased, and science-based ways to optimize their health.
SelfHacking starts with solid information, such as from peer-reviewed published studies (not from blogs or other experts) that is critically evaluated. This information, along with personal experience, helps guide the self-experimentation or SelfHacking.
(peer-reviewed scientific research)
Sometimes, information about a practice or substance is not published in peer-reviewed studies.
This can be because it is not an attractive field to do research, or because it would be difficult to design the study. Sometimes, if the mechanism seems plausible and risks of harm aren’t too high, we keep an open mind and look for the science may support how these things benefit our health.
While Joe started off trying to improve his health, SelfHacking could also be used to further optimize health and performance for people who are already healthy.
