About this course
Optimal heart rate variability intervals reflect good self-regulatory capacity, adaptability, and resilience. This is not a cardiovascular parameter, it reflects autonomic function. Too little variation indicates poor regulation. This is often seen in autonomic nervous system dysfunction, anxiety, depression, allergies, and many other conditions.
This diagnostic tool predicts the rate of recovery from stressful events, and low variability is associated with lower life expectancy in several studies. It is also one of our best ways to monitor patient’s progress and response to treatment.
Heart rate variability can also be a therapeutic tool. Research on self-feedback techniques is showing benefits in stress, anxiety, heart and cognitive function. And the list is growing quickly.
Personalised medicine is getting much closer. You can now monitor your patient’s autonomic nervous system very precisely. By measuring the time differences between heartbeats we get a very clear representation of our patient’s physiology as it is right now.
Dr Rob Kachko ND has been using heart rate variability as a clinical tool for several years and finds it tremendously helpful. It adds a great deal of information to all of the other data you have. He is a recognised expert in the fields of healthy ageing, neurodegenerative disease, and cardiovascular disease. He serves on the Board of Directors of the American Association of Naturopathic Physicians and the New York Association of Naturopathic Physicians, and as Chair of Public Education and Media Affairs for the AANP.
