What is ANS Testing?
ANS (Autonomic Nervous System) analysis measures neuro-cardiac function which reflects heart-brain interactions and autonomic nervous system dynamics. The autonomic nervous system is involved in the function of virtually every organ system and clinical manifestations of autonomic dysfunction are involved in just about every disease. As a result, ANS analysis is used as a screening and monitoring tool in many disease processes including early detection of heart disease and diabetes, even before other “routine screening” tests become abnormal.
Why should I get ANS Testing?
ANS testing is a non-invasive test. Meaning we don’t need to poke you or put tubes etc. into your body. We place a probe on your finger and within ten minutes you have the answer as to what is your risk for heart disease, stroke and cardiometabolic syndrome. You may feel like you are in good health and take no medications and have no symptoms and that is because a lot of the pillars in your bridge need to go down before you see actual cracks in the system. But, knowing that some pillars are being compromised, gives you the opportunity to fix them early and more easily and with less money, time and aggravation then when the system is really broken.
(The picture below explains the diagnostic gap in cardiovascular disease. This is where ANS testing focuses – leading to early treatment of inflammation even when patient is “fine”)
