About this project
What if there was a single solution that knows EXACTLY what is best for YOUR body at THIS EXACT TIME in your life? Meet Shae. Your very own Virtual Health Assistant, whose only interest is to keep YOU healthy and happy. All of the time.
Shae is designed to eliminate the confusion around health. Making “getting healthy” and “staying healthy” simple and convenient. No more guesswork for your diet, exercise and even lifestyle. No need to try to keep up with the latest fads or attempting to plan or remember your healthy choices. Shae does all of this for you, from any device.
Our global team is led by Matt Riemann, who was diagnosed as terminally ill with a rare genetic disorder. Disheartened by his medical prognosis, he traveled the world, working with geneticists and health specialists around the globe to figure out something that not only changed his life but will ultimately change millions of lives for the better.
We Are Each Unique And So Is Our Health
He reverse engineered the solution and created “Siri for your health” - a revolutionary virtual health assistant called Shae, who provides a customized experience based on your specific epigenetic make up, that can actually change your health, in real-time.
Shae uses a technology with more than 10,000 data points and 500 algorithms, to create an evidence-based, accurate solution 15 layers deep – Solving the question, “What is right for You?” Shae gives you the ingredients for your specific epigenetic recipe in diet, fitness and lifestyle. Take a tomato, for example. Imagine that tomato having the power to contribute to severe illness in one person and help to cure it in the next. Knowing what is right for you is the real power of Shae, a diet personalized for you.
With Shae, we’ve discovered a way for you to turn off your bad genes and turn on your good genes, every day. And as you update your information, Shae will interact with you to help you prevent issues and optimize your health for the rest of your life.
How it worksOur team is an international collaboration of researchers and specialists from Geneticists to General Practitioners, Dieticians to Alternative Medicine Experts with accumulated years of experience equivalent to 7 decades of targeted research in personalized health.
Imagine having a room full of Health Professionals working around the clock for you, in real time, coordinating with your environment and body to keep you happy and healthy.
Shae uses complex algorithms to translate the distinct relationship between your body’s shape and physical traits with it’s physical functions, hormone secretion, metabolism and lifestyle preferences.
Shae also uses anthropometry (scientific assessment of your body’s ratios), family history, and assessment of your lifestyle and environment to determine your phenotypic and epigenetic profile (pioneering advancements in future health). Did you know that endocrinology, anthropometry, phenotypology, biotypology and neuropsychology are some of the basic layers that actually make up your body? Don’t worry… Shae does, so you don't have to.
And did you know that kale may cause skin breakout in one person and be a superfood for the next? Shae does, and pulls from more than 15 sciences to create truly customized health that advises you on precise food, activity and lifestyle choices, so you can navigate your way to health and happiness. Welcome to the world’s most advanced Virtual Health Assistant.
When you understand this piece, which Shae actually does, you have the unique formula to be healthy and happy. And here’s the coolest part - YOU don’t have to know anything about it… all you do is fill out the questionnaire, put in your measurements and Shae tailors your plan for you.
Shae takes your data and matches it to hundreds of years of research and wisdom to literally tell you what is right for you today, down to which vegetables to eat, how to move your body for longevity, what is the best environment for you and so much more.
Through your specific measurements, Shae really gets YOU, precisely where you are in that moment, then delivers, manages and directs your health via specific, customized insights for nutrition, exercise and lifestyle that fit EXACTLY you, as you naturally are.
Simply put, Shae is one of the most advanced and unique technologies you will ever experience.

You are at the beginning of a movement, the start of a revolution that will change the face of health. Your participation and your investment will ensure that this technology will change the world. The world thanks you in advance.
Technology that is changing the face of health as we know it.
More than a decade of research and testing and more than $5 million of privately funded resources has cumulated in Shae as it stands today - the world’s first personalized health program for individuals. With our mission to assist the health and happiness of the entire world, it is no small project and your contribution will help to continue to evolve Shae for the people of the world.
Using a combination of ancient wisdom, modern medicine and the latest advancements in science and technology, Shae provides you with the insight that you need to stay healthy, spanning the 6 key areas of your everyday life: food, activity, social interactions, environment, your mind and what you do (your natural talents). Science already tells us that health is more than just what you eat and how much you exercise. All 6 aspects of your life influence the way your genes react to the world around you. And, as your genes tell your cells what to do, this is an important way that you can take control to keep your body healthy.
In the future, you will decide how to stay healthy - simply by what you choose to do each day. To begin with, Shae guides you by making it super simple - taking care of the details to let you concentrate on what really matters in life. The more you interact with Shae, the more deep learning occurs about the way you communicate, your body responses and your preferences.
Within a matter of days, you can forget about ‘being healthy’ and just ‘be’, with Shae by your side.
Over the years there have been countless researchers, statisticians, health professionals, medical doctors assisting with the development of Shae algorithms and programming... meet some of the team below..!

Right now, our world doesn’t do health, it does sickness
We are sick of seeing the one size fits all approach to health, where everyone is queued in the same system, square pegs shoved into round holes when there is an obvious difference in each and every single one of us. The key to our health is written in our body’s unique code. And we cracked it. Now that we can translate that code, we have the opportunity to be a thriving, happy and healthy society. Our intention is to provide the technology to help improve the health of the individuals of our world to support a healthy, happy community, regardless of race, gender or status.
We believe a healthy global community makes healthy decisions - with their own lives and through the influence they have on those around them. This is the driving force behind the decisions we make through our actions with Shae and this is our promise from our family to yours.
What will we use the funding for?
The more we raise through Kickstarter, the more efficient our development and production can become - so please share!!

Russian) to be able to assist in improving health around the world Create channels of access for those who are disadvantaged or need it most Keep Shae affordable and accessible for millions to align with our mission of transforming world health Continue to develop state-of-the-art technology to allow real-time integration of predictive, intuitive, interactive health that empowers you to control your future Integration with personalized medical software for real time monitoring of patients and holistic care.
Risks and challenges
The risks are the world won’t get a chance to receive this and so many people will continue to suffer, not knowing they simply have the choice to be healthy.
The science of epigenetics has been around for about 75 years, and we are now ready as a population to embrace this much needed information. This is your chance to participate in the real-time application of epigenetics, that up until this point in time has not been readily available. We are excited about this!
Our current tech platform is exploding with usage and our biggest challenge is to make sure our infrastructure is able to keep up with this explosion. We are continually expanding servers and adapting to latest technologies for efficient and secure development. And we are continually incorporating the huge breakthroughs in genetics and life science fields today to allow impact on individual lives immediately.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
