To get a better handle on biohacking, we consulted Luke Storey, a Los Angeles-based biohacker with a refreshingly grounded and holistic take on the practice.
TM: What are some of the more common, everyday methods of biohacking?
LS: People who are interested in biohacking assume it has to involve a crazy device or expensive supplement, but I believe what really moves the needle is connecting to nature.
There’s an ancient Ayurvedic practice called sungazing, which to me is the most powerful biohack in the world. The morning and evening sun contains an abundance of red light, and that red light is what regulates your circadian rhythm, which in turn regulates your hormones and neurotransmitters, including the production of dopamine.
TM: What’s one biohack that could make an instant difference for everybody?
LS: Everyone should be working to optimize their sleep, putting that at the forefront of their health regimen.
The best way I’ve found to do that is wear something at night called an Oura ring. It tells you not only how long you slept, but the different stages of sleep you had during the night.
