High Blood Pressure Cardiovascular Program
The Heart to Brain Relationship is necessary to understand the cardiovascular system. The heart has its own complex nervous system called “The Heart-Brain” because, the heart sends far more information to the brain, than the brain sends to the heart.
The heart is in non-stop communication with the brain and body via multiple pathways: neurological, biochemical, biophysical, and energy reserves. Electromagnetic fields generated by the heart penetrate every cell and may act as a synchronizing signal for the body.
At eCenter we measure Heart Rate Variability, (HRV), which is a non-invasive measure of neurocardiac function that reflects heart-brain interactions and autonomic nervous system dynamics. It is a measure of the naturally occurring beat-to-beat changes in heart rate. A low HRV reflects a low energy level in the autonomic nervous system and is causational to weight gain, metabolic syndrome, hypertension, diabetes, and congestive heart failure. This condition is also commonly associated with behavior problems, and difficulties with emotion regulation, depression, and anxiety. Reserving a consultation with Jocelyne Eberstein O.M.D. is the first step to obtaining your personal heart health knowledge, and knowledge is power!
