The Single Most Important Health Assessment...
The Heart Sound Recorder may sound like a cardiovascular evaluation. However, it is far more than that! In fact, it tells us so much about your overall health that I cannot stress enough its importance in the development of a healthcare program. It is simply the best foundational test that can be run. In all health conditions, there is a nutritional component and that is precisely what the heart reveals - what nutrition is not adequate enough for the body to perform optimally.
How do we address cardiovascular concerns naturally, therapeutically and what nutrition/diet is recommended? Choose from the following pages below:
Just one example of a condition poorly addressed by allopathic medicine is high blood pressure (HBP). There are many causes and just two examples include hepatic portal vein congestion and another being a hormonal imbalance called estrogen dominance. To deduce the cause, simple in-office tests can be run. I always rule out or confirm the hepatic portal vein as the cause of HBP first. It is what carries blood directly from the gastrointestinal tract to the liver. This tells us about toxins or allergens in the GI tract and other organs such as the spleen (part of the immune system).
Finding the cause of your symptoms, such as in the example of HPB, means we can target treatment more effectively. A holistic or whole-person approach to one’s healthcare from the prospective of both ancient wisdom medical systems paired with today’s science and technological equipment is the advantage you have in working with us.
As you can see, digestive integrity is intertwined with cardiovascular health. With Chinese medicine, what's known as "yang rising" is when backed up energy and toxins from the liver affect the head, causing things such as headaches, sinusitis and anxiety. Even moods are affected in this case, and also can be the cause of mental disorders. The congested portal vein of the liver can work in the other direction and negatively impact digestion causing food allergies and acid reflux.
Alternately, in the case of a hormone imbalance being the cause of HBP where the hormone estrogen is too high in comparison to other hormones, recommendations may be very different. Estrogen dominance is an epidemic. In males, obvious signs are extra weight (midsection in particular), soft, thin skin, “baby face”, and “man boobs”. Apparent signs in women are menstrual disorders (irregularity, PMS, mood swings, excess pain and cramping), painful or tender breasts, headaches, over-sized breasts, soft thin skin, low thyroid function and extra weight.
How does estrogen dominance become corrected?
Diet and lifestyle changes are important.

What are symptoms of Estrogen Dominance?
You'll notice the symptoms associated with adrenal fatigue or chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS) are many of the same as having estrogen dominance. So what if there was a simple, natural and affordable way to balance your hormones? Would you do it?
Estrogen dominance also means your thyroid is in danger. What does a healthy functioning thyroid do for you? The thyroid is vital to much more than weight management. Its function determines the quality of your health and life in the following ways:
HEART SOUND RECORDER (HSR) CONSENT
I give Heather Holistics permission to record the sound of my heart and to create a graph of that sound on the Heart Sound Recorder (a general wellness cardiac stress monitor). I have been informed and understand that the Heart Sound Recorder (HSR) is not an electrocardiograph like those in hospitals and is not capable of diagnosing heart conditions. The HSR is not in any way a substitute for a cardiologist. I further understand that the Heart Sound Recorder has not been reviewed or cleared by the US Food and Drug Administration. I understand that if I have or believe I have a heart condition, that I should see a physician qualified to evaluate and treat that condition.
Any suggested nutritional or dietary advice is not intended as treatment or therapy for any disease or symptom of disease. Nutritional counseling, supplement recommendations, and exercise considerations provided to me are to support the normal physiological processes of the body.
I understand that any techniques, treatments, or lifestyle changes suggested after the use of this device should be undertaken only with the guidance of a licensed physician, therapist, or healthcare practitioner. The findings from this device can be used to support, but should not be used in place of sound medical therapies and recommendations.
I am giving permission for Heather Holistics to share my graph with other practitioners for educational purposes only so long as my name and other personal information are removed.
