The heart is considered “the best proxy of nutritional status of the entire body. It receives the complete blood supply every minute and gets first choice of what is available.” (Goodheart) Our heart, being the most important organ in the body, is also very susceptible to vitamin and mineral deficiencies. Supplying these missing vitamins and minerals can have an immediate positive effect on the rate, rhythm and tone of the heart muscle as measured by the heart sound recorder (HSR).
The HSR is non-invasive--a specialized microphone is placed over each of the four valves of the heart. The HSR then graphs the sound and movement of the valves so that the rate, rhythm, and tone of the heart may be evaluated.
Your heart absorbs nutrients very quickly because your body is primarily concerned with keeping it beating. It has been determined which whole food nutrients would restore the correct rate, rhythm and tone of the heart. Then, when proper nutrition is supplied to the body, the improvement in the heart is reflected in subsequent graphs, often within minutes. The HSR can be an important tool in evaluating your overall health and then in following the progress you are making when under proper nutritional care.
The correction in the nutritional status of the heart is reflected in the body’s greater endurance, ability to rest, and overall well-being.
We can evaluate the effectiveness of your heart’s Rhythm, Rate and Tone using the Heart Sound Recorder. This is one way to examine whether your body is receiving the proper nutritional balance it needs. This Heart Sound Recorder records the sounds of your heart with a visual black and white view of the beats, the balance between the work and rest ratios of the heart beats and any irregularities that may exist. Your heart is the center of your body and can show a need for many nutrients like B vitamins, calcium, vitamin C, essential fatty acids, etc. Additionally, we can see if the body needs support for digestive dysfunction and adrenal insufficiency with this tool. This is imperative for not only proper function of the body but overall vitality!
Everyone can benefit from doing the Heart Sound Recorder. The HSR is a wonderful tool to find nutritional deficiencies that may be linked to several conditions, including:
· Sleep Issues
· Digestive disorders (heartburn, IBS, constipation, etc.)
· Thyroid dysfunction
· Poor endurance/Athletic performance
· Erectile dysfunction
· Decreased sex drive
· High blood pressure
· Dark circles under eyes
