Episode 59: The Biohacker Babes

Freddie, Renee, and Lauren nerd-out on all things biohacking! We talk about specific healing modalities, the underrepresentation of women in the space and how that impacts healing modalities in the industry.

Lauren and Renee grew up in a health-driven family that prioritized the fundamentals of wellness and self-care (don’t worry, there was lots of mac n’ cheese and peanut butter and jelly sandwiches!). Their father, Gene Sambataro, The Original Biohacker and pioneer of Holistic Dentistry, taught them the importance of individualization and experimentation from a very young age.

Coming together as health entrepreneurs, Renee a Certified Nutritional Consultant and Holistic Lifestyle Coach with a Master’s degree in Nutrition, and Lauren, a Broadway performer, personal trainer and corrective exercise specialist, feel a strong passion and drive to not only share each of their journeys towards wellness, but their strategy and motivation to discover our unique bodies through the world of biohacking.

The Biohacker Babes podcast aims to create insight into the body’s natural healing abilities, strengthen your intuition, and empower you with techniques and modalities to optimize your health and wellness.
