Measuring Health

Straightforward - Accurate - Revealing

Did you know that our heart is a resonating body for many vitality processes and biorhythms steered by the central and autonomous nervous system? It is inter alia closely linked with our brain via neurotransmitters as well with the organ, immune and endocrine system and perceives every little change occurring there. The activity level of these vital functions can be extracted from the heart rate variability (HRV) and qualitatively evaluated. Hence, HRV is a global indicator for identifying the individual health status.


 Factors affecting heart rate variability have priority:

  • Limited recovery ability due to stress
  • At work: excessive load / demands over a longer period of time
  • In sports: excessive training load over a longer period of time
  • Inner influences (psyche, thoughts, emotions, etc.)
  • Inadequate nutrient supply at cellular level
  • Insufficient fluid intake
  • Lack of sleep and quality of sleep
  • To little exercise
  • Obesity
  • Health impairments

 Convenient and practical application

The HRV-Scan is conducted with the aid of two non-invasive clip electrodes, suitably for wrists - without undressing. The user-friendly measuring appliance therefore permits a direct integration into the daily work routine.

In contrast to a pulse measuring procedure which only records a pulse wave without a specific punctum maximum our cardiograph records the exact R wave peaks.

Realiable measuring technique -

Genuine heartbeat recording

This provides measuring results in an accuracy margin of one millisecond with a yet unattainable degree of precision in HRV recording by capturing the exact length and intensity of every single heartbeat.

Information security and free of electromagnetic smog

We work completely without any radio signals such as WLAN or Bluetooth, wich are used with some HRV systems. Ahead of every health measure a thorough analysis and evaluation of the current situation is required. Only in this way a tailor-made and effective aid can be developed and provided.


What can we measure?

 Circadian Forecast

of performance Capability

The Circadian Forecast of Performance Capability shows the individual performance curve within the period of 24 hours; the time of the HRV measurement is highlighted as a dot on


the curve. The depiction illustrates performance peaks and gaps as well as the wake-sleep-rhythm including the deep sleep phases and their quality. On the abscissa (horizontal axis of the co-ordinate system) the time is shown in hours; on the ordinate (vertical axis of the co-ordinate system) the energy level of the biorhythms are depicted as a percentage.

 

Good sleep quality: In the time after 22:00 hrs the curve slopes downward and reaches the first energy peak of the day approx. between 6:00 hrs and 7:00 hrs.

Impaired sleep quality: The curve successively slopes upward between 21:00 hrs and 22:00 hrs and slopes downward not until about 4:00 hrs to slope slowly upward again between 6:00 hrs and 8:00 hrs.

Why negative thoughts harm us

Thoughts and the meanning we give them trigger emoons. Anger, for example, increases the amount of the hormone adrenaline in the blood and increases blood sugar levels, which in turn increases the blood flow to the heart, lungs, brain and muscles. Thus, the organism is prepared for battle and survival in a vital threat. And this can even take the form of a sitting activity at one's desk. 

Health and well-being are directly dependent on the proper functioning of the autonomic nervous system. 


In healthness the influences of the sympathetic and parasympathetic nervous systems alternate with one another without falling into extremes. Shift in this health balance, e.g. due to stress and in particular persisting stress, can be identified and analysed.

The frequency spectrum diagram shows the percentage activity level in the distribution of the three frequency segments:

  • parasympathetic nervous system
  • sympathetic nervous system
  • neurohormonal system

 

King of stressors

While breathing, heart rate and pulse work synchronously, the brain waves are also involved. Therefore, a good recovery rate will lead to clearer thinking and increased efficiency. In an ever faster accelerang world mulple stress peaks per day / per week / per year are the norm. The principle question is: Wich vital strategies are right for me to refuel again and again?


The Spline-Map of Electrical Activity is a cerebral matrix simulation wich illustrates the active functional areas of the central nervous system. The data derives from the neuron's activity within the cell structures of the different areas. The software captures every 50 heartbeats the respective data and projects the total of all information as a two-dimensional animation.

With the aid of the colours and percentages the current psycho-emotional state can be assessed. Moreover, topographic knowledge of the brain allows to further specify the measuring result and to draw additional conclusions regarding the cerebral activity.

Your organism needs stress - but: Prolonged and excessive levels make you sick.

Without the influence of earth gravitiy no muscle growth can take place. Controllable stress has a positive effect on mental and physical health. Leading the way in clinical research around the topic of "stress" is the stress theory of the physician Hans Selye, published in 1950. He demonstrated that especially cortisol (hydrocortisone) in humans is released under stess in larger quantities.  Selye realised that one gets sich when the body tries to adapt to prolonged, intense stress


without having compensatory influences, activities and opportunities. With increased cortisol levels, fad pads are no longer sufficiently broken down by the body. This means that permanent stress can also lead to obesity.

Your biological age

Each of us can be biologically younger than our calender age. Our actual biological age is dependant on our genes and our way of life. An HRV measurement can be used to calculate how good the constitution is and how lifestyle impacts on age.

Aging processes are intensified if the organism does not have sufficient opportunities for regeneration and compensation. The gerontological curve from the HRV measurement allows for conclusions to be drawn about the biological age of the body.

Energy reserves

We gain the energy for our daily activities from our cells. The count and the function level of the so-called "mitochondria" (the power plants of each cell) determine for example how much oxygen we can use in our body. That is why exercise and diet in conjunction with our resilience play such a key role. The cells react highly sensitively to excessive stress due to the micronutrient deficiency and lack of oxygen supply - among experts this is known as "oxidative / nitrosative stress".

 

The pyramid shows with the aid of blue (anabolic = construct) and red (catabolic = break down) elements and values the energetic balance in the different organs and subsystems. It contrasts the energy absorption with the energy consumption of the organism. This energy balance represents the dynamics of the "Neurodynamic Matrix".

 


Peripheral Brain Frequency Continuum


The electric activities of the brain during the measurement are closely related to the psycho-emotional state and are located in a certain frequency spectrum. This spectrum is divided in:


Sound waves

synchronise the brain

Sounds have a direct influence on our nervous system. They can influence our mind quickly - some sounds activate us, others directly induce relaxation. This has to do with the response of the brain to the different frequencies. The most effective frequencies which determine our relaxation are ones which we are no longer consciously aware of.

Our eras convert the vibrations we recognise as sound into electrical impulses and relay them to the cortex, which controls sensory and motor processes, our consciousness,


how we think and hence our personality. And we are well aware of how sound can affect our feelings, our emotions, mood and even our creativity. Sound can also stimulate the brain in ways of which we are unaware, for example to activate, release and convert hormons which circulate through the body via the bloodstream to control specific functions.

 

Getting back to balance by setting the right tone

So what happens during a scan? After you have been tested, the computer evaluates the characteristics of your neuro-dynamic matrix (what's happening in your body) and the two weakest chakras, and compares them with what it thinks ought to be happening. It uses this difference to identify which signals are needed by you, to restore the body's optimal state of balance, which it then superimposes onto a background of natural sounds.

 

The power of sound to balance body, mind and soul

The software makes it possible to generate for each person a unique audio file containing a sound pattern designed to correct bio-energetic imbalances an deficiencies. These health-stimulating sounds can be directly saved as an MP3 file, burned on CD, saved on a USB stick, or delivered to the user via a file-hosting service.

The file is approximately 20 minutes in duration and should be listened to every day for a period of two weeks. When after two weeks, the neuro-dynamic matrix adapts to the course of the sound regulation, it makes sense to return for another scan to generate a new sound pattern file which calibrates to maintain and further improve the new state of health and well-being.

The power of breath for health and fitness

Breathing is an essential life function primarily intended to supply oxygen and expel carbon dioxide. However, how we breathe is also very important and can enable us to remain healthy, rectfy disorders, improve energy supply and balance our physical and mental well-being.

 

Stress impairs the natural respiratory flow

If we are continuously stressed, the depth and frequency of our breathing is likely to be adversely affected. We can become so used to this that we do not notice our breathing becoming more rapid and shallow. If allowed to continue, this restricted breathing pattern can contribute to further unforeseen health disturbances, strains, tensions and eventual exhaustion.

 

Proper Breathing

Understandably, we often think of ourselves as breathing through our lungs but with practice it is possible to imagine ourselves breathing through our abdomen, pelvis, kidney, in fact any organ in our body that we happen to select.

 


Getting a "Lung full"

The result of our heart rate variability determines an ideal individual respiratory rate which should be done for 5 minutes. When done according to the instructions, it helps to restore our own ideal rhythm, simultaneously regulating biorhythms, strengthening the parasympathetic system, reducing stress and increasing our energy levels as well as psychic abilities like concentration.

The respiration procedure is illustrated with the aid of a dynamic ball, which expands to correspond with when we breathe in and contracts as we breathe out. The pace of the expansion and the contraction of the ball as well as the length of the breather are determined by the results of the measurement data and individually tailored to the subject of each test.

The relaxation effect is enhanced by the interplay between the breathing ball, varying landscape scenery and embedded classical music.

What makes the health-index soar

Exercise

With exercise, we reduce stress hormones. We feed our cells oxygen, toxins are excreted via the skin and respiratory systems. The best results are achieved with moderate endurance training and strength building. Both, if correctly applied, have an optimal effect on the HRV.

Breaks in between

Help to regenerate the mind for a short period. Taking walks, reading a book, a nice conversation or consciously relaxing ...everything helps to maintain our natural rhythms.

Relaxing to music

Transports us faster into another state of consciousness. The brain is in sync with the rest of the body. Deeper breathing amplifies this effect.

Time off during the year

It is wise and vital strategy, to consciously plan periods of relaxtion over the course of the year and experience them "in one's own time". This leads to resilince for those more heated phases in our everyday lives.

Support the regulatory capacity of the body

The regulatory medical procedures determine in whisch areas the body requires support. The use of accupuncture, herbal medicine and other procedures help to reconcile body an psyche.
