Healthspan Revolution: Game-Changing Biomarker Blood Testing (SiPhox) | Michael Dubrovsky

Wellness + Wisdom | Episode 581

Is biomarker blood testing the future of real healthcare?

Michael Dubrovsky | Healthspan Revolution: Game-Changing Biomarker Blood Testing For Wellness + Longevity (SiPhox)Michael Dubrovsky, co-founder of SiPhox, joins Josh Trent on the Wellness + Wisdom podcast, episode 581, to reveal how at-home biomarker blood testing is revolutionizing people's health journey, why the healthcare system should adopt a preventative approach, and how you can combine blood testing with wearables for best results.

“We went after at-home blood testing to put a device in every home in America and make it possible for people to have easy access to this rather than making blood testing reactive, where “I have terrible symptoms, now I'm going to get a bunch of blood work.” SiPhox is making it proactive so that people are getting much more blood tests and that's the cornerstone of the whole medical journey.” – Michael Dubrovsky

Power Quotes From The Show

Biomarker Blood Testing

“The way we view biomarker blood testing is like this panel is the base panel, you should be getting it frequently. We have add ons that allow you to look deeper at certain things. And that's how most engineers will debug a system. You do something broad and simple and you see what's going on there. And then we go deeper down a particular rabbit hole.”Michael Dubrovsky

Life Expectancy in the U.S.

“Life expectancy is not increasing while cost is increasing in the standard medical system and that is not true in Europe. If you look at all the European countries, everybody's life expectancy is increasing and the cost is not increasing that much. America is just obviously broken. We don't have a very strong opinion of how to fix it beside you need more data and you need more control over the situation.”Michael Dubrovsky

The Evolution of the Medical System

“Medicine is getting better but it's too expensive for most people to get that kind of scrutiny. Having more data makes it easier. If you give a doctor lots of data, such as 5 years of blood tests, the chances that they're going to give you an answer quickly is very high.”Michael Dubrovsky
