Many patients coming to our office for Homeopathic Workups ask us why we do Heart Rate Variability Testing before and after our examinations.
Hear Rate Variability or HRV testing is a very accurate measurement of the autonomic nervous system which is that part of our brain that controls all the sub conscious functions of the body such as breathing, heart beating, kidney urine production, liver function and the immune system, among many other functions of the body that we don’t think about to have happen.
For instance, we don’t think to breathe, it sort of just happens. Of course it doesn’t just happen, as it’s under the control of the part of the brain that runs on seeming autopilot systems that we are born with.
In actual fact, many of our patients see us because of immune system diseases such as ALLERGIES, CHRONIC FATIGUE,CHRONIC INFECTIONS, FIBROMYALGIA, ARTHRITIS and the myriad of problems we see in our practice all caused by defects in the autonomically controlled immune system.
The reason that we do HRV as part of our practice is that THE PROPER HOMEOPATHIC REMEDIES FIX HRV-DETECTED ABNORMALITIES. We therefore do an HRV scan before and after every one of our new workups.
We invite you to Google “SUDDEN DEATH IN YOUNG ATHLETES.” You will find numerous articles why young athletes can suffer cardiac episodes when stressed with the overexertion of athletic exercise.
HRV can also detect those athletes most at risk for these types of problems and its actually advisable to do an HRV test on all young athletes before starting any new Athletic programs.
We have decided to make a special summer offer to do a $75 School Physical and a FREE HRV TEST (takes 7 minutes) on the young athletes of family members of our practice’s patients if at least one family member has established themselves as a patient regardless if the athlete family member has been here before or not.
An HRV test normally costs $75 per scan and we are willing to run one HRV scan (with a $75 school physical) between now and end of August WITHOUT CHARGE just to introduce the procedure to our patients.
Having a normal HRV is no guarantee that adverse athletic events will not occur, but having a normal HRV is a very reassuring finding that the patient athlete is in good enough shape to endure realistic school sports endurance.
If we find abnormalities, we will recommend regular testing that we will charge for and may in fact need to refer abnormal findings to a regular cardiologist. But we can tell you that we have homeopathic formulas such as our ATHLETIC ENHANCER DROPS which have been shown to increase exercise ability in any athletic exercise.
To avail yourself of this offer, you still need to make an appointment to fit it into our busy schedules and slots will be limited to times available between other patients with regular appointments.
