What is Heart Rate Variability Measurement?  Why do I need it?

We are thankful to have the Pulse Wave Profiler to measure states of health and dis-ease, and overall balance in the nervous system. 

Heart Rate Variability (HRV) and its measurement have become the gold standard in observing and managing stress reactions in cardiology, sports performance and psychology practices. HRV testing is a simple and accurate test that uses complex mathematical calculations to analyze the rates and rhythms of the resting heart beat pattern.

What Is A Subluxation? How Does It Affect My Health?

What Is A Subluxation?  How Does It Affect My Health?

A vertebral subluxation is when you have one or more bones out of alignment in your spine.

Researchers all over the world have found that there is a normal alignment for your spine.  As you may know, your brain and your spinal cord (your central nervous system, or CNS) are encased in bone.  Your CNS controls and regulates every cell, tissue, organ, and function in your body.  Your breathing, your moods, your energy, digestion, immune system, elimination system, and EVERYTHING are totally dependent on the function of the nerves housed in your skull and spine.

Why Test Blood?

Why Test Blood?

A critical part of our Rhino program is taking a look "under the hood" at different indicators of health and early detectors of disease processes.

We have often had people come in and they just had a physical with their family doctor and received a "clean bill of health."  Yet they feel lousy and they know something is not quite right.  Well they've skipped some key measurements, or mis-interpreted the factors that were measured.

Body Fat and Your Health

Body Fat and Your Health

We all want to look good, but other than that, why is it important to keep our body fat in check?

Excess weight has been implicated in myriad illnesses. You probably already know that excess weight is linked to heart disease, stroke, diabetes, certain cancers, and even depression. The statistics are staggering (20 times more likely to develop diabetes according to a Harvard study.)

Christians & Meditation

Christians & Meditation

I am a Christian.  Is it appropriate for me to do this meditation and yoga?

This is an extremely important question, and one that deserves significant prayer and thought.  Certainly what we do in terms of our minds, hearts, and bodies matters a great deal to God and can influence us powerfully either toward or away from God.  Ultimately I believe a person should choose to do or not to do based on their conscience, provided they have an understanding of the Bible and its core teachings.  One needs to do what they feel is right;  no one else can tell you what is right for you.  I believe that is why God sent us the Holy Spirit, to live inside of us and help us discern what is right and edifies our bodies, minds, and hearts toward Him.  Ultimately we answer for our actions and beliefs to God alone.  We will have to give an account.
