068: Treating Patients Like Athletes, VO2 vs Longevity, and Ketosis with Jeroen Molinger, PhD


The emergent field of biohacking has seen massive steps forward in the last few years, and yet there are still plenty of areas ripe for improvement and progress. Joining us on the show today is exercise physiologist, and the creator of Splendo, Jeroen Molinger, to talk about the idea of treating patients like athletes and to share some of his insight into the fascinating subject of ketones. Jeroen is passionate about education in the health and wellness space and has spent a lot of time with patients from compromised populations, which is where he has been able to demonstrate the power of his approach. In our chat, we get to explore Jeroen’s perspectives on which of the biometric tracking devices are the best, including a look at the one he and his team have developed. We also get into some interesting ideas about better integration of data and further application of the wisdom of exercise physiology. So to catch it all in this great episode, tune in today!
