Heart Rate Variability Test
Heart Rate Variability Test gives an accurate look at your Nervous System Function. It gives a snapshot of an individual's accumulated stress and overall health. HRV measures the Automatic Nervous System specifically looking at the balance between the sympathetic and parasympathetic nervous system. The Sympathetic Nervous System is like the 'gas pedal' of a car and the Parasympathetic Nervous System is like the 'brake pedal'. Both systems are very important and should be balanced at all times for optimum health. The body requires a way to cope with the stress load placed on it every day. Stress in the form of poor diet, fear, danger, general stress and lack of sleep accumulate and lead to the development of a degenerative condition and premature aging. This test can be readministered over time to see how effective any treatment (diet, exercise, supplements, etc.) is working.
