In the bustling world of biohacking, where cutting-edge technologies and interventions often take the spotlight, Dr. Kien Vuu stands out by emphasizing something refreshingly simple yet profound: how we live our lives is just as powerful as any biohack.

A former interventional radiologist turned biohacker and wellness advocate, Dr. Vuu joined TereZa Hakobyan-Lolli and Anthony Lolli for the Biohack Yourself Documentary and explained how his journey has gone from chronic health issues to championing a holistic approach that transforms lives.

Originally trained at prestigious institutions like the Howard Hughes Medical Institute and the National Institutes of Health, Dr. Vuu's medical career took a turn when personal health struggles—being overweight, diabetic, and reliant on medications—led him to explore alternative paths to healing. This pivotal moment prompted him to delve deep into biohacking, spirituality, and nutrition, where he discovered a fundamental truth: "How we live our life is our medicine."

Today, Dr. Vuu spreads this transformative message through various platforms, from major networks like ABC and NBC to keynote appearances at biohacking conferences worldwide. His approach blends scientific rigor with holistic wisdom, guiding individuals to reimagine health and longevity not just through gadgets and treatments, but through intentional living.

Speaking at the Biohacking Conference

At the core of Dr. Vuu's teachings lies the concept of "Thrive State," a state where the body and mind operate optimally, free from the chronic stress that pervades modern life. He emphasizes practices such as breathwork, meditation, and mindfulness as foundational biohacks.

“My main biohack is breathwork,” Dr. Vuu said in the Biohack Yourself Documentary. “What it does is it quiets down part of our monkey brain. Our monkey brain, or what we call the default mode network, is actually something we start developing as kids. Then we start learning things from parents, from media, from society, from our schools, and from our teachers. We get hurt. Some people are in divorces, drugs, trauma, but even smaller things like not being seen, not being heard, or not being able to be themselves. And all of a sudden we put on this mask of who we think we need to be.”

He elucidates how our upbringing and societal pressures often lead us to adopt harmful mental frameworks, causing chronic stress and disease. By rewiring these thought patterns and embracing practices that promote inner peace and gratitude, individuals can profoundly influence their cellular health and overall well-being.

In a world enamored with technological advancements, Dr. Vuu remains grounded in the efficacy of natural modalities. While acknowledging the benefits of biohacking technologies like red light therapy and PEMF mats, he underscores that true transformation begins with mastering the mind-body connection.

"I would have to say that being present in my life remembering how lucky I am to be alive,” he explained in the documentary. “Always move my body. Always have meditation practice, breath work and being present with my family is what I go to most. Those are the non-negotiables.”

Through his coaching, public engagements, and writing, Dr. Vuu empowers individuals to reclaim their health by embracing gratitude and self-awareness. He challenges the prevailing notion that longevity and peak performance are solely determined by external interventions. Instead, he advocates for an inward journey where each choice—from diet to mindset—contributes to a thriving life.

Looking ahead, Dr. Vuu continues to expand his influence through podcasts, TV shows, and community events aimed at fostering a culture of holistic well-being. His mission is clear: to inspire people to recognize that the most profound biohack lies in their daily decisions.

“If we're just pushing out life and we're just busy being busy, what is the point?” Dr. Vuu said in the Biohack Yourself Documentary. “Choosing to create a beautiful life is the biggest biohack.”

By embracing Dr. Vuu's teachings, individuals can unlock their potential to thrive, not just survive, in an increasingly hectic world.
