Lauren Sambataro and Renee Belz grew up in a health-driven family that prioritized the fundamentals of wellness and self-care (don’t worry, there was lots of mac n’ cheese and peanut butter and jelly sandwiches!). Their father, Gene Sambataro, The Original Biohacker and pioneer of Holistic Dentistry, taught them the importance of individualization and experimentation from a very young age.


Coming together as health entrepreneurs, Renee a Certified Nutritional Consultant and Holistic Lifestyle Coach with a Master’s degree in Nutrition, and Lauren, a Broadway performer, Corrective Exercise specialist and Functional Health Coach, feel a strong passion and drive to not only share each of their journeys towards wellness, but their strategy and motivation to discover our unique bodies through the world of biohacking.


Their podcast, the Biohacker Babes, aims to create insight into the body’s natural healing abilities, strengthen your intuition, and empower you with techniques and modalities to optimize your health and wellness.


I’m alongside Lauren and Renee to talk about their journey from a health-focused upbringing to becoming prominent figures in the biohacking community. We share lots of actionable tips on personalized health strategies, the transformative benefits of holistic dentistry, and the importance of balancing technology with self-awareness.
