Heart Rate Variability Test (HRV)

Heart Rate Variability (HRV) has become the "gold standard" for characterizing autonomic nervous system (ANS) function and dysfunction. The ANS is a part of the nervous system that involuntarily controls all the organs and systems of the body. There are two branches of this nervous system - sympathetic and parasympathetic. These two systems constantly work as antagonists towards each other in their effects of the target organs. In traditional Chinese medicine, the key to good health is the balance of Yin and Yang which may be akin to Sympathetic and Parasympathetic tone. The HRV evaluation can determine one's current physical fitness level and adaptation reserve. This test may be useful for those who are suffering from chronic fatigue, dizziness, heart arrythmias, anxiety, depression, fibromyalgia, panic and sleep disorders.
