“Systems Nutrition: A New Paradigm For Optimizing Health And Longevity With Diet And Targeted Supplementation” is the presentation given by Alan Gale, CEO of Aimee Health at the June 20 , 2019 meeting of the Silicon Valley Health Institute in Palo Alto, CA.

Despite a plethora of published nutritional research in top journals, and a motivated population half of which is taking a daily supplement, we’re still suffering from an avalanche of poor health, disease, and premature death. Over 130 million people in the US suffer from 2 or more chronic diseases, and this year 450,000 people will die prematurely from preventable chronic diseases due to diet. The crux of the issue is the science is too generalized, and isn’t actionable.

In this talk Alan Gale, CEO of Aimee Health, will discuss use of systems science to not only reduce risk of disease, but to also optimize health and longevity. This paradigm views the body as a complex system, with interconnected subsystems (e.g. digestive, neurological, etc.), with primary inputs being nutrients from diet, and outputs being traditional medical biomarkers like blood tests and vital signs. Just as performance of any other complex system can be optimized, so can the human body. Practical steps and tools to utilize this perspective are provided, promising a new era in personalized health.

Alan grew up in Marin County, with a love of nature, math, and biology. Alan attended UC Berkeley as an undergraduate where his interests expanded to the fields of cognitive psychology, neuroscience, nutrition, and ultimately electrical engineering as a way to better understand the brain as an electrical system. Alan later attended MIT focusing on biomedical signal processing, culminating in a master’s thesis using active noise cancellation to measure brain waves in response to stimulation by an artificial retina. This experience of applying tools from engineering to solve new problems in health ultimately drove Alan to create his latest company, Aimee Health. More information can be found at
