The Future of Wellness Will Be Driven by Data and Biomarkers
Hack your health with metabolism measurements.
As technology shapes our future, it also shapes our perspective; the way we perceive the world changes with the tools we use to explore it further.
The way we view health is changing because of people like Daniel Tal Mor, who believes wellness will go from being “trendy” to absolutely essential, and the advent of a device that hacks your health with metabolism data.
Tal Mor is the CEO of Lumen, a company he co-founded with Ironman competitors sisters Merav and Michal Mor who have PhDs in physiology. Lumen is a consumer nutrition management platform based on a small device that measures metabolism through a single breath and provides personalized food, lifestyle, and health recommendations. It’s the sort of tech that pro athletes use but hasn’t been available for the average person looking to make positive changes to their diet and workout routine—until Lumen.
Seeing wellness as vital to every aspect of life, the team of scientists and engineers are using Lumen to bring context and preventive healthcare to those who want to better understand their metabolism and how nutrition affects their bodies in real-time. By telling you what metabolic fuel your body is currently using between carbs and fats and syncing with other health-tracking apps, Lumen empowers users with an entirely new strategy for reaching health and fitness goals, preventing illness and disease, getting better rest, and generally finding a more holistic approach to wellness.
The innovative executive shares his outlook on how we can adapt our wellness goals to a world transformed by smart use of technology:
“Eventually, everything about our health and fitness will be hyper-connected. We have data in silos or compartments — performance and fitness data is measured by Garmin or specific activity trackers. Our sleep data is measured with another sensor, but it’s not only about data sources. It’s also about experiences — you need to know what to do and how to act according to all the data…. Therefore, the future of wellness rests in how goal-oriented and focused we can be while empowering ourselves to be more proactive…. This is where preventative measures are essential. What if we could predict your likelihood of having a more serious disease like diabetes or heart disease, or any conditions resulting from a less healthy lifestyle?”
Whether you’re looking to lose weight, dial in on athletic performance, or further improve a healthy lifestyle, Lumen brings the power of metabolic testing to a device that can fit in your pocket — WIRED even described it as “like having a personal nutritionist“.
Lumen is the world’s largest metabolism measurement platform with 1 million monthly metabolism measurements. Their researchers have determined that people who measure their metabolism:
- Lose an average of 0.5 kg or 1.5 pounds of weight per week on a consistent basis
- Improve their metabolic flexibility by 66%
- Improve fasting windows to 14 hours daily
- Increase their daily movement by 1000 steps
Take a deep breath and exhale to begin a new path on your journey to optimal health and wellness. Learn more about Lumen today.
