you know a lot of times when you go to the doctor and they do all these tests specially blood tests things don’t show up and so that would mean that those symptoms could be subclinical or below they’re very sensitive they might be not showing up on conventional tests yet because their early symptoms of a condition that takes years to develop so there is a test that I do in my clinic that’s very very sensitive and it picks up the beginning stages of different situations okay but in order to explain that I have to explain what it’s measuring and there’s a system in the body called the autonomic nervous system a n-s if you’ve ever taken anatomy physiology you’ve heard about the autonomic nervous system autonomic meaning kind of the involuntary automatic system that works on autopilot you don’t have to even think about breathing or your heart rate because it just automatically goes so this system is the system behind all other systems it’s behind the endocrine system it’s behind the organ system and it’s kind of like a part of the nervous system that regulates on and off functions or hyper or hypo so if you had a little light switch and you had a little rheostat or a little dial that to turn up the light and down that would be what this system controls is the turning up and the turning down of different organ and glenn functions okay so there’s two divisions one is called the sympathetic and that would be another name for that would be the flight or fight mechanism and that is the stress state it’s your body’s ability to react to stress if there’s a lion there you can either run away or fight the lion if a car is on your child you would try to lift the car over the child and get this incredible adrenaline rush so the sympathetic nervous system kind of runs on adrenaline and other hormones that activate or turn things on so if you can imagine in a certain stress state all the different body reactions that occur that would be controlled by that part right here okay so that’s like the on switch now we also have the switch which is called the parasympathetic and that has to do with more rest sleep and digestion so you can’t digest you’re being chased by a tiger you can’t reproduce if you’re being chased by a tiger so in body when these bodies are in stressed states they have reproductive problems they have hormone problems they have digestive problems and they can’t sleep so this we consider the system that helps relax you and calm you down and so these things are constantly going back and forth so if you can imagine in a total relaxed state all the different body functions that’s when you’re healing that’s when you’re that’s when your metabolism is working so this system measures all those functions ok so we go back and forth so this would be more like the reaction to stress this is more of the ability to recover from stress now what’s really cool is there’s a test to measure both of these systems and it’s a technology developed by the Russians in 1990 called the heart rate variability and there’s over 2,000 studies and even certain cardiologists use this as a predictor for mortality from cardiovascular incidence I don’t use that for that purpose I used it mainly to measure stress in the body so the heart rate variability technology will measure information between the heart beats to assess the nervous system that’s controlling the different functions of the heart and from there we can kind of get an idea what’s going through the entire body ok so that’s what this test is and and I want to just explain the two scenarios we can actually visualize what’s going on with stress in the body we can actually see stress in your body and see how it’s affecting your body and see how you’re reacting to it in a normal body this graph this line should be totally plumb up and down like there’s no Tigers in the room that there’s you know the walls are safe everything’s calm and everything should be chilled out but when you measure someone a lot of times it’s stuck in high mode yet their their body’s reacting to stress but there’s no stress there so they’re basically kind of stuck in something in that state you might find them thinking a lot analysing they can’t turn it off they can’t relax so that would be that state they’re kind of stuck in stress even when they’re sleeping and then we get a loss of that overtime when you’re stuck in stress when you’re burning out you end up burnt out and then this tall dial goes to the left and that would describe someone who kind of lost their vitality their get up and go mojo there and they feel like they’re lazy they feel like you’re tired they just can’t seem to get going and so that’s what happens when this goes down here because now their body doesn’t react to stress anymore another physiological thing would be if they were to exercise and the pulse rate doesn’t go very high so this does control the pulse rate okay now over here the parasympathetic it’s measured by a smaller dial right there so we measure that too and normally that needs to be all the way to the right okay because you should always have a little bit more of this than this because it’s like your buffer reserved to stress so if you’re being chased by a tiger you need you need to be able to have enough reserve to get away and then recover from that so it’s really the like once you are done being chased by the tiger how fast is your body come back and recover how fast can you recover from stress how fast can you recover from exercise and if this brings the pulse rate up when you’re exercising this will bring it down after you stop exercising okay if you work out and you’re extra so your pulse rate stays high for a long period of time then you don’t have a good system that can recover that that’s a very unhealthy state so this is another system that measures kind of like your ability to recover from stress and this is an active recovery so your body is constantly working to recover from stress so if there’s a problem with this if this dial goes right here and the more it goes to the left your tolerance for stress is affected people get on your nerves easily you have no pain you don’t sleep you don’t relax and it kind of severely affect your metabolism okay so those are the different mechanisms and there is a test to measure these and it’s very valuable especially in determining what exercise the person needs kind of where they’re at on the body and then there’s also techniques that I do to extract the old stress from the body using acupressure to make a difference so I’ve been doing this for like 25 years so I’m able to manipulate the changes in this graph by doing before-and-afters so I hope this was helpful and it’s called the autonomic nervous system and then it’s called heart rate variability

Here’s The Video Description From YouTube
Find Your Body Type:
Dr. Berg explains how to measure the flight or fight mechanism using heart rate variability (HRV). This relatively unknown technology to most people assesses the system behind all other body systems, called the autonomic nervous system.
The flight or fight system is called the sympathetic nervous system and the rest and recovery is called the parasympathetic system.
