Four months ago, at the London Biohacker's Summit, my friend, fellow biohacker and self-quantifying nerd Ruben Salinas got on stage and, during a fascinating presentation that revealed a host of cutting-edge methods he uses to keep his body and brain optimized, mentioned that each day he sticks his finger in a device called a “Bio-Well”, which measures parameters like his “chakras” and “energy field” and “organ health”.
I was skeptical.
So I did some research into Bio-Well, and discovered Dr. Konstantin Korotkov, who is a Professor of Physics at St. Petersburg Federal Research University of Informational Technologies, Mechanics and Optics in Saint Petersburg, Russia. Dr. Korotkov is a scientist known for his research on the human energy field and he developed something called the Gas Discharge Visualization technique, popularly known as “GDV”. He was involved with the development of this Bio-Well device, and during our discussion, you'll discover:
-How Dr. Korotkov developed gas discharge visualization (GDV) technique the point where you can keep a running tab on everything from cortisol to organ function throughout the day…[3:40]
-How a mild electrical shock to your finger can result in the ability to engage in direct, real-time viewing and analysis of changes in your human energy fields…[12:35]
-The actual research behind GDV and whether it actually works when investigated in studies…[17:35]
-How you can use simple measurements on your finger to determine things like food allergies, altitude acclimatization, brain wave states, diseases and more…[27:00]
-How you can use GDV assess response to drugs, meditation, stress reduction therapy or any other interventions…[29:43]
-How GDV can be used to monitor your personal environment for things like mold and fungi…[33:05]
-The methods Konstantin follows to modify his diet, exercise and lifestyle based on GDV testing of himself and his environment…[33:55]
-And much more…
