Paleo Approved Label

The Paleo Diet is the diet that humans would have evolved with over millions of years, rather than the current Western diet associated with obesity, heart disease, and diabetes. Recent studies have produced staggering results displaying the unrivaled efficacy of implementing The Paleo Diet in patients with Diabetes, Obesity, Multiple Sclerosis, Heart Disease, Celiac's Disease, and more. Paleo Approved certifies and labels foods adhering to The Paleo Diet, making them easily identifiable for people who want to improve their health, and to be a visible icon of The Paleo Movement, to aid in improving the lives of millions worldwide.

Sense your body

Develop a pill that boosts the sensitivity of the part of the brain that feels the body, to become hypersensitive to bodily sensations. This would naturally push people to eat better and exercise more but without excess. As a side effect, if enough people take it, it would change the mix of foods in shops toward more healthy choices for other people. It would also make people more aware of the impact the body has on the mind... fostering a more mindful attitude and improved behavior in other areas of life.

biomarkers with patient and expert crowdsourcing

Make free the ability to get a 1000-panel blood test quarterly. Blood testing, DNA, physicals, etc. Sensors/chromatograph/chip reader machines will need the same kind of focus as DNA sequencers. Capture the data and publish in a public website that plots trends with comparisons. Allow individuals to review the data, read professional analysis results and blog their symptoms. Statisticians, scientists and engineers can aggregate and mine the data. Over time, real cause-and-effect will emerge. Continuos improvement in this whole feedback & analysis system, could help attain unknown hieghts of health mastery. So Bill, Melinda, Warren, ...we better hurry up! :-)

Sauna Dialysis

The skin is arguably the largest organ of the body and contains 3,ooo,ooo sweat glands similar in function to the 2,ooo,ooo nephrons in the kidney and capable of excreting 1.5-3 liters of fluid per hour compared to the kidney's average 1-2 liters per day along with the same electrolytes and wastes. Protocols using a sauna could be developed to maximize perspiration and waste removal while the patient rehydrates using an electrolyte drink. This would treat mild renal failure, extend the interval between regular dialysis for more severe cases, be lifesaving in the third world and provide a more comfortable experience.

Singularity Weight Loss Centers

Create an international chain of weight loss centers based on the precepts of singularity. People may choose to adopt a healthy lifestyle as Kurzweil’s vision of singularity becomes mainstream. Singularity posits that if people live to 2050, they might live forever given the exponential expansion of science and medicine. This creates a paradigm shift that may motive people to resist temptation. When facing a firing squad, it is hard to resist the sensual pleasure of a candy bar. The potential prospect of living forever, though, trumps momentary pleasure. The centers may expand into: Diagnostics, Exercise, Restaurants, Grocery, Retail, Food/Supplements, Entertainment

Teleportation of Simple Life Forms for Medical Purposes

The medical condition of any biological cell, including DNA, can be described as a given state of software function that can be electronically exported. Optimal software operators can then be developed in vitro as medical treatments and teleported over the internet into the human body. These medical software operators, once applied on electronic circuits, use ambient matter to assemble inside the human body into simple living or biological medical forms. We are working on teleporting a virus of E. coli (5,386 base pairs) across the Atlantic as proof of concept of teleportation of life and something that will help to colonize other planets.

Avoidiabetes Movement - Recognize Risk Early

One in two individuals worldwide is at risk of developing diabetes or metabolic disease during their lifetime and at great socio-economic cost. Research identifies over fifty health conditions as early risk indicators for diabetes. Avoiding diabetes is possible - eight to fourteen years before a possible diagnosis - naturally and without major costly interventions. But patients are on their own. The Avoidiabetes movement aims to develop worldwide satellite systems of specialized Early Diabetes Risk Recognition and Avoidance health professionals. In addition, we are developing a system of public live-in centers teaching meal preparation, food shopping, and Avoidiabetes lifestyle management.

Revolutionize Drug Development, Really, Not on Paper

Thousands of new compounds (or old compounds for new indications) are not being tested because of boxed thinking within the current system, and prohibitive cost of clinical stages of development. The proposal is to utilize a completely transparent crowdsourcing model and convergence of modern computer sciences / healthcare IT with drug development know-how. As a result, higher quality data will be generated faster and cheaper, bringing many of new chemical entities and "repurposed" generics to patients. The adoption of this method will make the legacy drug development paradigm obsolete, and result in dramatic savings to the healthcare systems globally.

Reusable Ionizing Capsules for Water Purification

Our idea is Reusable Ionizing Capsules for Water Purification, which have been distributed to over 37 countries in the past 10 years. Our AquaSmarter Capsules, which last for 1 full year, can completely purify 1 liter of biologically contaminated water in minutes and 5 gallons in 24 hours. When concentrated, AquaSmarter Ionized Water also works as a powerful disinfectant.

MSRA Killer

There are two problems with antibiotics: 1)they attack good and bad bacteria indiscriminately, and 2)bacteria are becoming resistant to them. Now imagine a kind of virus that could single out and destroy specific bacteria. Such viruses, called "bacteriophages", occur naturally. But what if we could isolate or create phages that attack only pernicious bacteria, such as MSRA? Eli Lilly began researching phage therapy in the 1940s but abandoned it because antibiotics were easier to develop. Despite this, the Soviets used phages with success during the World War II. Perhaps it is time to revisit phage therapy using modern techniques.
