Dr. Stefan Chmelik is a man of many talents. He’s a physician, philosopher, writer, teacher, and technology creator. He’s the co-founder of BioSelf Technology, and his mission is to positively impact the lives of 100 million people by 2025. He’s achieving this through exploring and furthering the understanding of sound processing in the body. He’s one of the only experts in the world with a combination of clinical experience in stress and trauma as well as direct experience of meditation, sound healing, music, and breath training.
Sound is incredibly powerful. It’s the one sense we can’t cut off—we’re always hearing and processing sound. Sound healing has been practiced for centuries, and there are still places to go where you can experience this for yourself today. Humming and singing, from an evolutionary standpoint, are immediately calming and nurturing.
Sound can also be an incredibly powerful tool in dealing with anxiety, which is a natural part of being human. As collective anxiety has gone up with the introduction of technology, Dr. Stefan thought it would be fitting to find a technological solution to that anxiety. He became the UK representative for a soundbed technology developed to treat PTSD in US soldiers which had an incredibly 96% success rate. But while using and studying the technology, he realized that they could get rid of the need for that big, bulky hardware by turning the body into the hardware. That makes this incredible technology harnessing the power of sound accessible to more people than ever before.
The Biggest Helping: Today’s Most Important Takeaway
“Getting outside, not just in a gym, being outside in nature, walking—and therefore breathing—is the most important thing any of us can do. Get out there and walk. If you can’t walk, move in some other way, but we need to walk and we need to breathe, that is an essential human function.”
