That’s us!

The goal of this website is to provide the absolute best information on health topics available. And to make that information as actionable as possible.

Too often we are given advice, with no guidance on what we should do with it.

The problem we seek to solve in our own lives is one of evolutionary mismatch.

That is, the human mind and body are very well optimized for a world that no longer exists.

Everything from pollution to social interaction has completely changed the way we live our lives as human beings.

It is our job to restore order to our lives. We do this by utilizing ancient wisdom and modern technology to live optimally in a suboptimal world.
