Yet again we report on another suspicious death in the field of alternative therapies
Sadly, this time it’s a young man, the famous biohacker and CEO of Ascendance Biomedical, Aarron Traywick who once turned heads by injecting himself with an untested herpes treatment died on Sunday, in a spa room in Washington, DC, police confirmed today. He was found face down in the floatation tank.
He spoke publicly not only about having the potential cure for several diseases like HIV, but said next it would be cancer, and wouldn’t end there.
According to Erin at Health Nut News: “I’ve been to alternative health flotation therapy spas many times over the years. The water is shallow (like a bathtub) and the salt content is very high, so you can float effortlessly.”
Also a flotation tank spa owner stated publicly that even if you flipped on your stomach, you’d flip onto your back again, within seconds seconds. So this was mystifying to experts, as well as to many friends and colleagues who thought there could be foul play. Although the authorities are currently suggesting there are no signs of foul play.

Two people who worked with Traywick at Ascendance Biomedical told VICE News: ‘Aaron was a passionate visionary,” software engineer Tristan Roberts said in a statement:
“He seemingly never tired as he brought people together to work on some of the most imposing challenges facing humanity. While many in the biohacking scene disagreed with his methods, none of them doubted his intentions.”
Traywick, according to Roberts, had been seeking “nothing short of a revolution” in the field of biomedicine, hopefully leading to the “democratization of science and the opening of the flood gates for global healing.”
Traywick’s death follows weeks of no communication with his Ascendance Biomedical colleagues due to differences regarding the company’s future, according to researcher Andreas Stuermer.
“We all lost touch with him,” Stuermer told VICE News last month during a profile on the tiny startup. “It was more than four weeks ago.”
Traywick made headlines in February when he injected himself with an unregulated herpes treatment during a biohacking conference in Texas. In October, Traywick also staged a live demonstration of a purported gene-therapy treatment for HIV, sitting next to Roberts as he injected himself with the compound. Roberts said his viral load had risen one month after the injection, Live Science reports.
Traywick apparently hadn’t been in touch with his colleagues at Ascendance over the past month, according to VICE. Reportedly, the CEO and his colleagues had differing ideas about how to distribute the gene therapies as well as the direction of the company. “We all lost touch with him. It was radio silence,” Andreas Stuermer, a researcher at the company, tells VICE. “It was more than four weeks ago.”
