The Heart Sound Recorder is a general wellness cardiac stress monitor with a specialized microphone that is placed over each of the four valve areas of the heart to graph specific sounds and movement (as described below). The Heart Sound Recorder is the first muscle that responds to nutrition. To function optimally, it is vital that the heart have the proper nutrients to maintain its correct rate, rhythm, and tone.
Any suggested nutritional advice or dietary advice is not intended as any primary treatment or therapy for any disease or symptom. Nutritional counseling, supplement recommendations, and exercise considerations are provided to upgrade the quality of life and support the physiological processes of the human body including your cardiac health.
RATE The “Autonomic Nervous System” controls the rate at which the heart beats. Some bodily functions are directed by the autonomic nervous system such as digestion, heart rate, and blood pressure. These are influenced by diet, vitamins, minerals, and other factors.
RHYTHM This is the “lub dub” sounds of the heart, which should have a specific work to rest ratio. The rhythm can be supported with nutrition that will help balance a heart that is working too long or not resting long enough. Although everyone’s work to rest ratio varies, there are certain guidelines that they should fall within.
TONE This includes the opening and closing of the heart chambers. On the HSR graph, the tone of the heart can be observed by the height and the width of the two sounds made by the heart’s ‘lub dub’ sound.
The heart’s reaction to certain stressors, (ie. chemical, nutritional, and emotional), can be observed using this type of device.
