Do You Know Which Supplements Match Your Needs?
With so many nutritional supplements on the market today, it is hard to differentiate between what is beneficial and what is just plain “hype”. From week to week, you can find ads and breaking news on weight loss cures to secret anti-aging formulas. In addition, each person has specific nutritional needs based on genetic predispositions, dietary choices, and environmental exposures. With all of these factors taken into consideration, how can we truly know which combination of supplementation can best help us reach our optimal health standards?
SOLUTION . . .
Biofeedback is technology that is accepted and utiliized in many medical practices. From neurological studies of the brain to cardiological studies of the heart; from respiratory studies of the lungs to muscular reactivity studies, doctors rely on biofeedback in many different types of practices. You now have that technology available to help determine which nutritional supplements best match your physiology support needs!
How Does Biofeedback Work?
By sending digital imprints towards the body and measuring the physiological responses via respiration, heart rate, electrical conductivity of the skin, and subtle skin core temperature variations, reactions are collected via coherence (looking for consistent positive reactivity to stimuli). The less the coherence, the more negative a response to a particular stimuli. Once all the measurements have been sent back to the computer for interpretation and analysis, a report is generated illustrating the most positive coherence reactivity and corresponding elements. Z3 utilizes two types of measurements:
HEART RATE VARIABILITY
The body’s autonomic nervous system (ANS) governs many of the body’s internal functions, through its two branches: the sympathetic branch of this ANS activates or increases the heart’s
action, while the parasympathetic branch acts as a brake slowing the action of the heart. The vagus nerve plays a role in the parasympathetic braking action. The balance between this throttle and brake system produces an ongoing oscillation, an orderly increase and decrease in heart rate. These autonomic inputs are mediated by two “pacemakers” in the heart, the sinoatrial (SA) and atrioventricular (AV) nodes, which are responsible for heart rhythms. The SA node initiates an electrical signal which begins each cycle of the heart’s pumping action. This signal passes through the AV node which spreads the electrical current through the ventricles of the heart. A variety of factors, including breathing, pressure sensors (baroreceptors) in the arteries, the body’s thermal regulation, and anxious thinking, increase specific rhythms in heart activity. The overall process of heart function is the end product of these component rhythms. Higher heart rate variability seems to indicate an optimal cooperation between the sympathetic and parasympathetic nervous system.
Current research suggests that each individual has a “resonant frequency” at which heart rate variability is the greatest, and this resonant frequency can be measured by biofeedback instruments. Psychophysiological research suggests that these frequency ranges reflect different biological influences. The high frequency range is associated with parasympathetic pathways, the influences of respiration in normal frequencies on vagal tone. The low frequency range is associated with the influence of blood pressure (baroreceptors) on heart rhythms, and meditative/slow breathing augments this range. The very low frequency range is associated with sympathetic activation, or more probably the withdrawal of parasympathetic braking, and also the influences of visceral and thermal regulation. Rumination and worry augment this range. Finally, the ultra low frequency range is associated with the slower-acting biological influences. Several clinical findings show the importance of the heart’s variability.
Variability can be defined as the changes in the interval or distance between one beat of the heart and the next. The interbeat interval (IBI) is the time between one R-wave (or heart beat) and the next, in milliseconds. The IBI is highly variable within any given time period. Multiple biological rhythms overlay one another to produce the resultant pattern of variability. Interbeat interval variations, or heart rate variability, have relevance for physical, emotional, and mental function. Many people confuse Heart Rate with Heart Rate Variability. The human heart is a bio-electrical pump beating at an ever changing rate: it is not like a clock that beats at a steady, unchanging rate.
GALVANIC SKIN RESPONSE
Skin conductance, also known as galvanic skin response (GSR), is a method of measuring the electrical conductance of the skin, which varies with its moisture level. This is of interest because the sweat glands are controlled by the sympathetic nervous system, so skin conductance is used as an indication of psychological or physiological arousal. There has been a long history of electrodermal activity research, most of it dealing with spontaneous fluctuations or reactions to stimuli. The device measures the electrical conductance between 2 points, and is essentially a type of ohmmeter. The two paths for current are along the surface of the skin and through the body. Active measuring involves sending a small amount of current through the body.
Due to the response of the skin and muscle tissue to external and internal stimuli, the conductance can vary by several microsiemens. When correctly calibrated, the device can measure these subtle differences. There is a relationship between sympathetic activity and emotional arousal.. The GSR is highly sensitive to emotions in some people. Fear, anger, startle response, orienting response and sexual feelings are all among the reactions which may produce similar skin conductance responses. These reactions are utilized as part of the polygraph or lie detector.
- Biofeedback is a non-invasive way to map an individual’s supportive needs.
- Coherence is the reaction to digital stimuli via electrical and heart rate changes.
- A series of reactions to stimuli can be collected seeking our positive and negative responses.
- Once the reactions have been identified, a report is generated based on the results.
