Welcome to my website – I am glad that you are here. My name is Matt Dippl, as a biohacking coach, I am helping entrepreneurs and knowledge workers in the digital economy to achieve peak-performance health and brain function.
Over the last 17 years, my primary focus has been to research health and longevity and it’s various strategies and tactics to achieve it.
My medical Journey: from west to east
I grew up in a family of medical practitioners. My father is a successful dentist from Munich, Germany. My uncle runs one of the biggest pharmacies in Bavaria close to Garmisch-Partenkirchen.
I was always interested in the medical and healing arts and when I was 19 I decided to study Traditional Chinese Medicine.
I was inspired by the story of the master healer and Chinese martial arts legend Wong Fei Hung.
Migrating and living in Australia
In 2001 I immigrated to Australia to study traditional Chinese martial arts with a 5 generation master of a Shaolin/Daoist family system.
I trained traditional kung fu and qigong under his guidance. He advised me to study to get a medical degree.
My martial arts teacher was a highly accomplished “hit medicine” expert, the equivalent of a chiropractor for martial artists in China.
He was a total legend in Chinatown living the example of a bodhisattva. Guiding the youth and treating the sick, old and weak.
In 2007 I graduated from the University of Technology in Sydney with a Bachelor in Health Science for Traditional Chinese medicine (TCM).
Afterward, I built up my own integrative Chinese medicine clinic through digital marketing. I mainly looked after top CrossFit athletes in the Canberra region.
My own Story of Healing
I have not been always well though… I actually got very sick in 2012 due to an autoimmune disease, and I had to fight for my life to get my health back.
I accomplished this through combining the eastern healing arts with functional medicine based biohacks to improve my mitochondrial health.
I used art and science at the same time to get my health back on track.
Today, I am symptom-free, happy and well. I enjoy solid health and am executing daily on my dreams.
No more brain fog, tiredness, and sleepless nights due to incessant worries about my health and future.
No more tears of despair due to fear that tomorrow could be worse than today.
Today my brain is sharp and I have a great amount of cellular energy to live the life that I want.
To make things even better I am sleeping next to a newborn baby and a wonderful woman which has a deep love, wonder, and awe for life.
Overcoming Disease as my Hero’s Journey
As a result of having been through my own journey of facing an autoimmune disease, I am now a skillful creator of my own life.
All I had to do was to leave my victim mentality behind. I stopped the excuses, rationalizations and bad feelings coming with them.
I did it because they made me sick.
I made the choice to be a hero, instead of a being a victim and a coward hiding away from life.
The choice for me was to become a master at creating my own identity and reality.
I crafted a vision for my life and I went out into the world to learn the skills that I needed to get well again.
Who am I?
What do I love?
What do I feel?
Who do I want to be?
These are the questions I ask myself daily. The key to a rich life is to ask better questions!
And no, it’s not all about the supplements, tests, and diets that you perfectly and religiously need to take and stick to.
The Inner and Outer game of Hacking Your Biology
The outer stuff is only about 20% of the work you need to do. The other 80% is the deep, hard and confronting inner work.
Finding your love, your forgiveness, and your vision is the big work that will really get you going!
Leaving a painful past behind, and to love deeply again… That’s the deep work.
The Vision behind my work
I want to empower entrepreneurs to have the health they need to create world-changing businesses and technologies.
Secondly, I envision Germany as a country in which functional medicine is available and patient-centric care will be the standard of care.
My mission is to change a part of the healthcare system from sick care are focused based model to a healthcare based model.
My Big Why
In 2013 my wife and I participated in a tech accelerator program to launch a startup in the eBook publishing space.
After 18 months in, we lost a brilliant friend, co-founder and programming genius due to a stroke.
It was a total tragedy. This is one of the main reasons why I now work with knowledge workers in the digital economy.
Being an entrepreneur is like peak performance sports on a mental, emotional and physical level.
And I’d like to help others now to attain peak brain function and to keep it that way!
The Inner and Outer Game of Biohacking
I do this by applying various strategies and tactics of functional medicine based biohacking approaches.
The inner game of biohacking is about your identity, your beliefs, and your associated feelings.
The truth is what you focus on becomes bigger.
You focus on health? Well, health grows…
You focus on disease? Well, you get sicker…
When we are not well we do the second bit really well. And unfortunately, we are not so skilled at focusing on health.
It’s a skill we can and need to learn!
This is my Mission
This is why you can find me here on the internet – I’ve built this site for you.
To give you a nudge to focus on what you want instead of what you don’t want!
I am here with the single intention to get you moving towards peak-performance health via embarking on your own hero’s journey.
We don’t have a lot of time…
I would have wished for a resource like this website to dig into on my worst days of illness.
I read a lot when I was going through bouts of inflammation, brain fog, and tiredness…
Due to my own challenges, I have come to understand that a new medical model is drastically needed.
Solving the chronic health epidemic in all of the western developed countries is one of the biggest challenges our society is facing as of today!
Especially in the treatment of autoimmune diseases, there is still so much work to do alongside the already exciting stuff happening right now.
I am convinced that a Functional Medicine based approach can dramatically improve patient outcomes and overall care efficiency.
I’d like to play my part and contribute in a meaningful way to society.
In regards to applying medicine people’s life’s, jobs and their families are at stake.
I hope more doctors will contemplate this fact more deeply how far reaching their advice or treatment can be.
Focus on always what you can do,
Matt Dippl, BHSc
