Introducing the New VITAL SCAN Technology!
VitalScan HRV is the latest Heart Rate Variability assessment tool from around the world. The assessment tools are designed to give the healthcare practitioner a look in to the many regulatory systems of the body and act as a compass as to what direction the patient’s health is headed.
Is the patient/client headed in the right direction or do you need to change course?
This technology is not designed to diagnose or treat any disease but is designed to educate the practitioner and the client as to how well these control systems: the Autonomic Nervous System, Neuro-hormonal, as well as the Chinese Meridians, are able to regulate the body based on the current internal and external environment.
Heart Rate Variability (HRV) is the variation in the time interval between heart beats. A healthy heart rate variability is reflected by lots of variation in the time domain between successive heart beats. This would indicate a very robust autonomic nervous system. Someone with less variation between one heart beat to the next has low heart rate variability and indicates decreased autonomic nervous system regulation.
The importance of Heart Rate Variability is that it is controlled by the autonomic nervous system and therefore is a window into its function. The autonomic nervous system automatically influences the visceral organs, smooth muscle such as the blood vessels and glands, and obviously a big influence on the heart.
There are 2 branches to the autonomic nervous system, the Sympathetic nervous system and the Parasympathetic nervous system. The Sympathetic nervous system deals with stress situations and is sometimes referred to as the fight or flight system and is triggered by any stress such as conscious or unconscious psycho-emotional stress, toxins and electromagnetic influences. The opposite is the Parasympathetic nervous system and is coined the ‘rest and digest’ system, which should be dominant. Many of us are in an adaption stage to chronic stress, which lowers many healthy, normal functions.
The second component of Heart Rate Variability is the spectral analysis. The ECG is broken down into very specific frequency band widths that correspond to specific functions. Low frequency, for example, has to do with the Sympathetic nervous system and high frequency has to do with Parasympathetic nervous system function.
Within these various frequency bandwidths is the proprietary information unique to the HeartQuest© that can tell us information about meridians and other systems of the body that other heart rate variability technologies don’t have available.
Here are some of the things it will show us:
•Autonomic Nervous System Regulation
• Psycho-Emotional States
•Dynamics of Functional State
• Fractal BioRhythm Analysis
•Complex Bio System Analysis
• Function of the Meridians/Chakra’s/Aura
•Elements and Dosha’s
This VitalScan HRV© system is designed for research and education. It can be used to see how various modalities performed in our office, based on the scope of practice, affect the regulatory systems seen on the HRV.
This HRV system was designed by Dr. Javdat Karimov, MD and NMD with Dr. Michael Kessler, DC, a system that goes way beyond any HRV that is on the market. Dr. Javdat Karimov has been investigating the research out of Russia and has found many connections between HRV and the physiology of many systems of the body as well as the connections to Chinese medicine and Ayurvedic medicine. Additional experts have been consulted to contribute to the information the VitalScan provides.
Jane Smolnik, a Naturopath based in Asheville, NC is now using this system in her practice. The before and after results can show us the efficacy and effect certain modalities or protocols can have.
