'The more we look at our health in a proactive way the better our long-term outcomes are. It’s self-empowerment really. It’s my body.'
DIANNE MCGRATH is a symbol of self-empowerment, self-optimisation, inner-strength and courage - that inspires humanity. She is a curious explorer of life, who believes in honouring one’s self by growing through challenges and following limitless dreams. As a Mars One Astronaut Candidate for the first Human Settlement of Mars, she has prepared for the one-way journey by taking the power of personal health into her own hands and bio-hacking herself. She has actively challenged the status quo by taking a preventive and proactive approach to her health and transforming her physiology. This beautiful soul, emanates all that we believe in and aspire towards. She is one of Today’s Alchemist’s. She is part of our Alchemy family. And, It’s our honour to support her extraordinary dreams and self-experiments. Discover the inspirational story of Dianne McGrath in - Part I: United Humanity & Part II: Humanity 2.0 - of her remarkable photographic documentary by Agent Morphe. Here’s a mere glimpse…
There are multiple stages of Mars One’s astronaut selection, and an aspect of self-selection especially during the medical test part. I believe in preventing things rather than dealing with consequences later. It’s why I started spending a lot of time seeing a psychologist and counsellor. Why do we treat mental health any different to any other type of health? Why don’t we take a proactive approach to things rather than wait for something to go wrong? It’s ridiculous. The more we look at our health in a proactive way the better our long-term outcomes are. It’s self-empowerment really. It’s my body.
What about if I do get selected for Mars One, what are the health risks that astronauts face? What would my life look like?
Is the Dianne McGrath today going to be good enough – in a physical and mental sense? Will I be able to deal with that? I don’t know. And I realised that no, heck no, there’s no way I’d have been able to get into a spaceship at that point in time. I needed to become a totally different person. I had to change.
There are so many health risks that astronauts face at a level that is beyond what we have here on this planet. The amount of bone and muscle mass lost, vision impairment, mental health issues. That’s when my bio-hacking journey started.
