ANS (Autonomic Nervous System Testing)
Cardio - Autonomic Nervous System testing in Brooklyn, NY
The health and function of your cardiovascular and nervous system is vital to nearly every process occurring in the body. We rely on our heart and blood vessels to supply our bodies with the essential building blocks of life, and imbalances in this system may result in chronic health conditions such as hypertension, heart disease, and diabetes just to name a few.
The cardiovascular system is in constant communication with a part of the nervous system called the Autonomic Nervous System (ANS). Your autonomic nervous system controls body functions that are not under conscious control. Think of it like your body’s autopilot. It controls your breathing, digestion, and heart rate among other things. Even though we do not have to think about these functions, each one of them is vital and can cause serious issues if they are not working properly.
The NY Center for Integrative Medicine in Brooklyn uses autonomic nervous system testing to assess and treat a variety of conditions.
When to get tested
One of our doctors may recommend a Cardio-ANS evaluation when they want to assess your risk of several chronic diseases. This assessment is also useful to track responses to treatment plans and ensure your long-term health is optimized.
Some symptoms that may be particularly useful to assess with this device include unexplained dizziness, fatigue, and abnormal sweating. Additionally, we may test patients who regularly experience a rapid heart rate, fluctuating blood pressure, shortness of breath, or frequent tingling in the extremities.
During the Cardio-ANS procedure, you will be asked to lie still or perform a series of simple tasks. The entire procedure is painless and can be completed in as little as 15 minutes.
