Lara Hemeryck’s story is a testament to the power of resilience and self-discovery. Her journey to wellness began amidst the challenges of chronic illness. Her remarkable transformation showcases her determination to find solutions beyond conventional medicine.

A Belgian scientist with a PhD in biomedical sciences, Hemeryck battled severe health issues throughout her studies. Faced with the limitations of traditional medicine, she embarked on a quest for alternative solutions. Inspired by the principles of functional medicine, Hemeryck delved into biohacking, leveraging social media to explore the transformative potential of food and lifestyle interventions. “Isn’t it strange that I was not taught to look at food first or doctors didn’t point me in that direction?” Hemeryck reflects. “I looked into food as medicine, and it became my healing tool.”

Through meticulous research and experimentation, Hemeryck reversed a myriad of chronic conditions, defying the prognosis of her doctors. “From chronic sinusitis to asthma and IBS, I reclaimed my health and vitality within six months, shattering the confines of conventional treatment,” she shares. Hemeryck's use of intermittent fasting, glucose monitoring, and biohacking techniques such as red light therapy and cold plunges played pivotal roles in her recovery. “Intermittent fasting and glucose monitoring definitely helped with cravings and understanding my body better,” she explains.

Hemeryck’s journey embodies the ethos of empowerment through knowledge. As a scientist and biohacker, she bridges the gap between research and public understanding, empowering individuals to take control of their health. “Biohacking saved my life,” she declares, “and it’s about optimizing your biology and health without relying on drugs.” Through her agency, Hemeryck continues to advocate for evidence-based wellness, guiding thought leaders and companies in disseminating accurate information and impactful solutions. “We help experts within the biohacking space communicate science effectively,” she notes.

Her focus on women’s health underscores a commitment to inclusivity and empowerment, addressing critical gaps in research and representation. “I am really interested now in women’s health and reproductive health,” Hemeryck emphasizes. “Reproductive health is key right now, and environmental toxins are a significant factor in the challenges many face.”
