Jeff and Erik speak with Victor Mifsud about his fascinating findings as a biohacker. Victor originally went on a journey of self-discovery to confront his diagnosis of retinitis pigmentosa and in the process has met and interviewed countless experts, scientists, and others on the forefront of medicine, psychology, and wellness. His deep dive into so-called alternative therapies has led to a wealth of knowledge regarding our internal landscape.
Victor Mifsud is a citizen scientist, biohacker, natural vision educator, psychedelic advocate, and filmmaker. He has recently completed a very personal feature-length documentary called “My Neuroplastic Adventure”. His journeys take him from the cutting edge of neuroscience to the most ancient forms of tribal healing.
He has interviewed doctors and scientists who are using technology and wisdom in equal measure. He has worked with renowned National best-selling author & physician Dr. Gabor Maté; Canada Research Chair in Neurobiology of Motor Learning Director, Dr. Lara Boyd, and NY Times best-selling author Dr. Norman Doidge to name a few. He also happens to be blind.
