Your own Health Data

Personalized (n=1) experimentation is about learning more about your self. Then using that knowledge to improve your health and well-being.

The (free) comprehensive health assessment at Biohack U is designed as a high level measurement tool to help set health goals and track progress over time. Most people will also want to track a few things in greater detail.

Here’s an example of an individualized daily tracking sheet:

Though this tool is designed for daily data collection, you don’t have to use it every day. Instead you could:

  • Take a ‘snapshot’ for one week each month;
  • Use it when symptoms are varying a lot and you aren’t sure why, as a way to try to discern patterns; or
  • Use it before and after you implement an n=1 experiment as a pre/post measurement tool.
