ACBM believes that assessing a patient’s Heart Rate Variability to stress is a key factor in promoting optimal health, and the HRV test can detect early signs of the development of the pathological processes or the presence of some functional disorders, which may not be revealed by an ordinary physical examination.
Heart Rate Variability
The Heart Rate Variability (HRV) test is a quick electrophysiology study of the stress on your autonomic nervous system (ANS). The test evaluates heart rate variability at rest and gives an assessment of the adaptability of the sympathetic and parasympathetic branches of the ANS. To achieve health and balance, the body needs to maintain a proper balance between the sympathetic, “fight or flight” and parasympathetic nerves “rest & digest” which is increasingly difficult due to the daily demands of the world.
