Heart Rate Variability Test
Person will receive a printout of the test with visual depiction of the overall state of health and imbalances displayed clearly on the graphs.
The test includes:
- ECG and HRV measurments
- Body Mass index,
- Stress Index,
- Rate of Biological Aging,
- Activity of Sympathetic and Parasympathetic Nervous System.
Q: So what is HRV?
A: Heart Rate Variability (HRV) Test measures the levels of vital energy, rate of biological aging and ability to adapt and process stress .
HRV test can determine:
- What volume of energy has a person to react and adapt to the environment and stress?
- Is the functional state of an organism balanced or not? How harmonious are relationships between a man and the environment? How harmonious are flows of energy — in a human body, as well as between him and the environment?
These are the fundamental questions of life and death. Man is alive only as long as he has a vital energy. And he is healthy only as long as his interaction with the environment is harmonious and balanced. If the balance is broken than illness begins. Vital energy is ended — death comes.
Q: What do you mean by “vital energy”. Here we do not refer to energy measured in joules, kilowatt-hours or TNT. Then what are we talking about?
A: Here, the ‘vital energy’ is measured by HRV and pulse diagnosis.
The point here is the following. The source of the vital energy are primarily from sunlight, air-oxygen and nutrients derived from food as well as electrons from the earth. All organs and systems of a body receive and distributes this energetic nourishment through blood.
A heart sets the rhythm to the process of blood moving and supplying a body with energy.
We know that the heart rate is variable. Thus a body is adapted to the external environment. Even when a patient lies on a couch during the survey and does nothing, however, there is a complicated process of interaction with the environment. Scientifically speaking — ADAPTATION. This process of adaptation is accompanied by a continuous change in the heart rhythm.
It’s simple. If the heart rate varies this means that the heart responds to needs of the body and doses volume of blood directed to the tissues through the circulatory system. And if the heart beats in rigid rhythm (the variability is little) it means that the heart ignores the problem of adaptation to the external environment.
In the course of the survey/test we can roughly estimate how much the heart rate is variable. During the five-minute test we look at the changing numbers on the ECG signal, where the program displays the duration of the cardiac cycle, in milliseconds, and recounts how the heart rate (HR) changes.
If the heart rate is almost unchangable then it means that the body is out of balance. And if the heart rate is changable this means that the process of the blood supply, and therefore the energy is regulated. So, let’s remember the simple truth. The higher heart rate variability, the greater potential reserves of the body to adapt. Of course, everything has reasonable limits. Excessive variability in no way should be regarded as a large energy potential, it’s more like to shoot out of a cannon on sparrows. Total chaos reigns in the systems of regulation — respectively, the energy is spent foolishly.
The optimal variability is 150-250 ms.
Q: How much time it takes?
A: Testing and evaluation time may take between 30 min to 1 h, all depending up on the complexity of the case and type of tests included.
Q: Are there special recommendations regarding my preparation for the test?
A: For the accuracy of the measurements, tests should preferably be conducted in the morning time, 3 hours after last meal, when the body is rested and not under stress. Thus preferably, a tested person should not eat anything or drink tea or coffee for 3 hours prior to the test. All medication used for cardiovascular problems should be abstained from for at least 12 hours prior to the test.
Q: What will I get from the visit?
A: Person will receive a printout of the test with visual depiction of the overall state of health, imbalances and rate of biological aging displayed clearly on the graphs.
