Did you ever think how better it would be to prevent sickness, know ahead of time before it appears visually? How autonomic nervous system is related to our well-being? How it is possible to detect health problems at their early stages by analyzing the autonomic nervous system? What tools can do that?
Health problems – treat or prevent? “Health is not everything, but everything without health is nothing” was said by Socrates. Unfortunately, people often don’t think about their health until obvious symptoms of a sickness begin to appear. As a result, a doctor’s visit becomes necessary, which in turn leads to either multiple expensive examinations, or even more expensive treatment options. Just think, it all could have been avoided if the sickness was exposed at an early stage of development. Preventing a sickness is always easier and more pleasant than treating it after it has already arrived. So why then do people wait until the last minute? Here are just a few possible reasons:
Health care costs – Every trip to the doctor can be a hefty expense. Not everyone can afford to visit the doctor for regular checkups and evaluations.
Busy life style – In today’s world, too many people don’t have time to see doctors, especially if it is not urgent
Personal Confidence – Some simply believe that as long as they feel great they must be healthy. And with that kind of mentality it is no surprise they choose not to perform checkups and evaluations.
Just by looking at those three factors alone, we can make a general statement that today’s medical system is not setup to warn individuals about an approaching sickness, but instead to help treat it after it has already arrived and began causing harm to the body. At the same time, another problem arises. The majority of the “sick” who go see their doctor, are actually in a state that is somewhere in between “sick” and “healthy”. This group of people doesn’t necessarily need high cost exams and drugs to make them better. The ultimate goal should be to preserve and strengthen their health. This is why the task of identifying certain health problems at early stages of development is so crucial.
Autonomic Nervous System and its role in our health. One of possible ways to solve this problem is to monitor the body’s Autonomic Nervous System status. The Autonomic Nervous System (ANS) – is a mechanism which controls all of the body’s processes. Depending on the performance of the ANS, the body either functions normally, or experiences some abnormalities or problems. At their early stages, many sicknesses can be linked to a disruption in the performance of the ANS.
In a healthy individual, the ANS is in a state of balance between a state of activity and relaxation. What does this mean? Everyone knows that there needs to be balance in nature. For example, we need balance between work and free time. The human body is no exception. If the body becomes too active, the Autonomic Nervous System immediately activates a process of relaxation in order to relieve stress and restore balance. In a healthy person, these balancing processes contain a certain level of function. A drop in that level or even a lack of balance between these processes is a first sign of unpleasant changes taking place in the body. In the long run, such changes can cause various health problems. Fortunately, they can be detected early through an evaluation of the autonomic regulatory system using
Heart Rate Variability (HRV) analysis. Such an analysis is neither expensive nor time consuming.
Autonomic Nervous System evaluation – available tools.
Inner Balance Scan, developed by Biocom Technologies, evaluates the balance of the Autonomic Nervous System with in just 5 minutes. At the end of the evaluation session you get a detailed report which includes interpretations of the state of balance between the activity and relaxation in your ANS, along with the level of their functionality.
It is important to note that a onetime evaluation of your Autonomic Nervous System status cannot provide definite answers about your health simply because the results will vary depending on your overall state of wellbeing that particular day or even time of day. However, if the varying changes are tracked over some period of time, you will in fact be able to determine if you’re really as healthy as you thought or if there are things that you should at least think about. To get the health answers you’re looking for, you must do the following:
Perform at least 3 evaluations of the ANS status, but at different times (in the morning before work, after work, and on the weekend).
If the results of all three evaluations show that the ANS is performing within the normal boundaries, continue performing evaluations at least once a week in order to keep track of possible trends or changes in these results.
If at least one evaluation returns an abnormal result, analyze your current condition subjectively. Perhaps the abnormal test result is related to an overwhelming day at work or stress at home or elsewhere. Think about ways to change your routine in order to avoid stress and unnecessary strain on your body.
Continue evaluating your ANS status. If the abnormalities continue even after long periods of rest and relaxation, it may be necessary to perform a much deeper analysis and maybe see a doctor.
