Heart rate variability is a well-accepted measurement in medical literature to evaluate the autonomic nervous system. The autonomic nervous system influences visceral organs, blood vessels, and glands. There are two branches of the autonomic nervous system, the sympathetic nervous system and the parasympathetic nervous system. The sympathetic nervous system is involved with stressful situations, while the parasympathetic nervous system is involved with rest and digestion. HeartQuest TM is a tool that non-invasively measures heart rate variability using electrocardiograph (ECG) recording.
The information collected from HeartQuest TM is translated into valuable information on the balance between several body systems, central nervous system activity, total hormonal activity, the five elements from Chinese medicine, indications of thyroid imbalance, as well as actual age versus biological age. HeartQuest TM illustrates how stress is impacting the patient’s health and adaptive capability. This is valuable information is not diagnostic but is used to guide and strengthen patient assessment, treatment planning, and evaluation of progress. Visit
