Coffee with your Doctor?

How the body resets:

  • Fragility
  • Anit-fragility- Antifragile systems not only benefit from periodic stressors, but also tend to benefit more when these stressors are distributed randomly, as opposed to more regularly
  • Collective anti-fragile – not the same outcomes – collect data – “The only way that we can effectively work with complex systems is by working from the inside – by gearing our decisions and actions to act as minor tweaks (trial and error) on the system (just as evolution does)”
  • Users only visit doctors at peak times of their diseases
  • Drs don’t know variations to make accurate assestmentsIMG_4567
  • Drs are weary to give users apps
  • Users are familiar with sharing our health /  wearables (but where in the body?)
