Biohackz is the blog of Dutch biohacker Tjeerd Verbeek.
Biohacker and professional tai chi teacher – based in Utrecht, The Netherlands. I started biohacking in the late 1990s using pulsed electro magnetic field devices. Since then I’ve explored many other methods like photobiomodulation, nootropics and tension/psoas release exercises. I own a diverse collection of PEMF and PBM devices, which I use to improve my own health and of the people around me.
I am driven by curiosity and the desire to promote effective (often pharma-disruptive) health interventions. I had a short academic education – 3 years philosophy and artificial intelligence at Utrecht University. I continually learn new skills and expand my knowledge. When I’m not biohacking or teaching tai chi, I like to play snooker or go bass fishing in the North sea.
Biohacking can be done in many ways. This blog is about natural DIY lifestyle interventions. Both to prevent, cure or manage disease as well as increase vitality, performance & longevity. It covers a wide range of topics, with a focus on ‘energy medicine’ – using light (photobiomodulation, PBM/LLLT) and magnetism (pulsed electro magnetic field therapy, PEMF) to improve health and well-being.
All the hacks featured on this blog I have studied and experimented with for at least one but mostly over three years. Before a post is published I’ve looked into the matter over a period of time and from various angles.
I try to get as close to the truth as possible. I’m not interested in believing or defending something that isn’t in alignment with reality. This also means I may sometimes change my view – and update the corresponding blogpost. In science there are few truths, only probabilities, because our ecosystem is pretty complicated.
