As the old saying goes… “The heart eats first.”
This means that nutrition fed to the body, is used by the heart first.
The heart can show nutritional needs before symptoms manifest in other organs.
Certain types of heart stress can be monitored by visualizing the rate, rhythm, and tone of the heart cycle using The Heart Sound Recorder. As a result, the heart’s reaction to certain stressors, i.e. chemical, nutritional and emotional can be observed using this type of device.
The response to recommendations can be monitored by observing changes in the frequency, amplitude, and characteristics of the heart’s sound recording. Comparison graphs can help determine the effectiveness of actions taken to improve the quality of life.
Nutritional Deficiencies of the Heart
Every day, more than 1700 people die from cardiac arrest in the United States. Heart Disease is the leading cause of death for both men and women accounting for almost 24% of total deaths.
Yet, there is very little attention on how to assess the heart for nutritional deficiencies.
The Heart Sound Recorder Does Just That!
The sound that a heart makes is a reflection of the valves and muscle tissue that pump blood throughout the body. It has peaks and resting periods that can be assessed in real-time.
Based on the findings, nutrition can be eaten on the spot and sounds can be reassessed. This is a non-invasive test that can be administered in about 15 minutes.
