Open Source Medicine: Biohacking, Citizen Scientists, and a Systematic Approach to Optimal Human Functioning

Ostrolenk speaks with Ryan Frisinger, a biohaker, techno-shaman, and visionary, who focus on the interaction between genetics, biotechnology, medicine culture, and humanities. Frisinger describes his personal history and interdisciplinary studies, which led him to his current profession. Through his research, Frisinger has learned the ways in which current health issues cannot be addressed through current health care systems. Many physicians lack training in genetics, which Frisinger sees as key to understanding an individual’s health predispositions and needs, and further lack training in interdisciplinary research or a culture of collaboration with patients. For these reasons, Frisinger believes the movement of citizens’ science and biohaking are vital to moving medical progress forward. Frisinger ends by describing the multidisciplinary way in which he works with clients. For more information, contact Frisinger at [email protected].

Matt Beaudreau on Post-Conventional Education

Ostrolenk, and co-host Deidre Hackleman, speak with Matt Beaudreau on post-conventional education. Beaudreau chronicles his own journey working as an educator in conventional education systems, and his observations of how standardized education leads to simplicity of throught. Conversely, in the post-conventional educational systems in which Beaudreau teaches, children learn personal goal-setting, discussion skills, and how to impact their communities, in addition to basic skills. Ultimately, children learn autonomy and self-awareness that not only prepares them for college, but for a successful life.

Recovering from Autism through Neuro-fit, #ORadio

neurofitOstrolenk speaks with Justin Goddard, Director of Neuro-fit Systems Australia. Goddard first discovered Neuro-fit at its base in Los Angeles as he and his wife were looking for programs to help their own daughter recover from autism. While many other programs and treatments sought simply to manage autism, Neuro-fit became a key component to the recovery piece by recalibrating the way the brain and body communicate with each other. Goddard discusses his daughter’s condition before treatment, and the progress she’s made since Neuro-fit improved the efficiency of her neuro-pathway development through movement. Having been witness to the profound impact the program had on their daughter, Goddard decided to bring Neuro-fit back to Australia.
