Our Mission

To be the hurricane that results from the flapping of a tiny butterfly’s wings, where the hurricane is the change in perspective away from disease and into health.

...And the butterfly is HOMe/HOPe.

Health = A+B+C

Health is an Optimal Physiologic State

  • A

    The Absence of Disease.

    This is under the purview of illness medicine.

  • B

    The Maintenance of Balance Between Anabolism and Catabolism.

    This is under the purview of the Health Optimization Practitioner.

  • C

    According to the Cycle of Life of the Organism.

    This is under the purview of the Health Optimization Practitioner.

Just Because Your are Not Sick, Does Not Mean You Are Healthy!

Health in 3 Steps

Measuring: Measure the metabolite levels, especially of the nutrient and hormone networks

Comparing: Compare the measurements to the metabolite levels found at ages 21 to 30 years old or at evolutionarily derived values (Optimal Range, meaning HOMe does not use the standard reference ranges given for diseases)

Balancing: Balance (correct and shift) the nutrient and hormone networks (using the active form of nutrients and bio-identical hormones) towards the optimal range by using ratio correction and network-wide range shifting.

The HOMe/HOPe Story

Unlike most online courses for purchase, HOMe/HOPe is a nonprofit organization. All profits from the purchase of HOMe/HOPe certification coursework will go directly towards advanced HOMe /HOPe coursework development.

Health Optimization Medicine (HOMe) was founded in the Philippines by Dr. Ted Achacoso after realizing that illness medicine, in which he is trained and excels as an interventional neuroradiologist and pharmacologist, was reactive, interventional, and could benefit from an entirely different approach: one that optimized health rather than treated disease.

Over several years, he became an expert in the intricacies and power of metabolomic, gut, and hormone optimization, along with the additional pillars of what became HOMe. With the 80/20 principle in mind always, testing was key to measure and quantify but it was vital to only measure and quantify what was absolutely necessary for health.

Dr. Ted constantly studied and honed the art of measuring borderline deficiencies and subtle toxicities. He then compared these values to optimal ranges using his ownalgorithm,via “network-wide range shifting”, moving away from illness medicine “normals” and creating optimal ranges that reflected our most resilient age range: males and females between the ages of 21 to 30.  

Health Optimization Medicine did not treat or diagnose any disease. Instead, any clinical improvements were simply theresult of having true foundational, real-time, preventative wellness.

HOMe/HOPe obtained its 501(c)3 charitable organization status in February 2019.

HOMe/HOPe Requires a Shift in Frame of Reference

Pathogenesis shifts to Salutogenesis

Geriatrization shifts to Neotenization

Organology shifts to Holobiontology
