I was a basic hard-working student at school. I got to study medicine at Cambridge University.  After qualifying in 2000 I worked for a whole 18 years in the NHS. In 2007 I got my postgraduate MRCP qualification.

Working in the NHS was disconcerting. Not to mention tiring doing on calls with very little reward. Many patients were not treated effectively with drugs. As much as 50% do not take their medication since they believe it wont help.

In spite of this the system churns new drugs every year. It’s almost as if the government, the big pharma industry and NHS are in bed with one another.

Ever since I met my wife in China in 2009 I become interested in alternatives to pure pharmaceutical treatment.

I studied traditional Chinese medicine and acupuncture in Beijing for six months. Then I returned to the UK in 2010 to work as a metabolic medicine register in the NHS.

Biohacking is defined as optimising the body for peak performance. The demand is clearly there for non-pharma, nutrition and lifestyle driven ‘hacks’  and I strongly believe this is the new way forward. Most of the time natural supplements (e.g. turmeric capsules), are hands down superior and safer to pharmaceutical options. Indeed, as much as 25% of drugs are derived from botanicals e.g. metformin. Food itself has therapeutic value and as Hippocrates said “Let food be thy medicine and medicine be thy food”.

In good health,

Dr. Anil Simhadri MA (Psychology) MB BChir (Cantab) MRCP (London)
