WHY WE STARTED
LifeHub was born from the desire to improve the way we experience healthcare. Founded by a seasoned group of like-minded healthcare professionals, we felt that we could do a lot better in helping people get healthy. We saw that the modern healthcare system is designed to treat you when you are sick and often by treating the symptoms but not the underlying causes.
Although modern medicine has made great advancements, we have all noted the increased incidence of lifestyle diseases and “sub-optimal health” issues.
Many of our friends and family members were not necessarily ”sick”, but they were certainly not completely healthy: they were feeling tired, stressed, toxic, run down or burnt out. We felt this needed to be addressed in a simple, affordable & consumer focused manner.
SO, WE CREATED LIFEHUB.
We see LifeHub as helping you in that stage between self-diagnosis and a doctor’s clinic. Our team of Doctors, Practitioners and Coaches provide services, products and programs that address common lifestyle conditions. In a LifeHub you can buy pharmaceutical grade supplements, have a nutritional IV, consult a coach or order some lab tests without needing to use too much time or money to consult with a Doctor or wait at a hospital.
We are trying to make looking after your health a little bit easier.
Our founding team are a seasoned group of healthcare professionals with many decades of experience across the USA, Australia, China and Hong Kong. LifeHub is a subsidiary of LifeHealth Ltd, a leader in Integrative and Anti-aging medicine for over 10 years in Hong Kong. We have combined our experiences to try to create a better way to experience healthcare, a way where the consumer is empowered to take charge of their own health at convenient wellness centers that provide the necessary knowledge, tools and support.
Read the incredible story of our founder’s uncle, Dr Victor Seah, dubbed the poorest good doctor.
We take these three approaches and combine them together to work in an Integrative manner. We believe effective diagnosis and evidence-based treatments already exist, it is that just until LifeHub there was no convenient location for people to learn about them and purchase them easily.
We also approach our care by looking at our clients holistically, by addressing:
