We all know that hormones control our emotions and reproductive system, but did you know that they also control the functions of your entire body? Hormones control everything from brain health to body temperature to blood sugar levels; even regulating your cardiovascular system to keep your heart beating properly.
Heart Disease is the leading cause of death in the country, with over 600,000 people dying from cardiovascular issues each year. At IgniteRx, we now offer a simple Cardiovascular Assessment Test that can predict a person’s risk for heart disease before serious medical conditions occur.
This painless, three-minute test analyses three key components of heart health:
Heart Rate Variability (HRV) –
HRV measures the degree of fluctuation in the length of intervals between heart beats. A healthy person will show a fluctuation in heart rate, while an unhealthy person will have a simple and consistent heart rate.
Arteriosclerosis occurs when the blood vessels that carry oxygen and nutrients to the rest of your body become thick or stiff; restricting blood flow to your organs and tissues. Our assessment will determine the elasticity of the blood vessels of the patient and their risk for blockages.
Stress is a major contributing factor to cardiovascular health. Our assessment will measure a patient’s physical and mental stress levels, as well as their body’s stress resistance, or ability to handle stress efficiently.
There is no blood test required or crazy treadmill exercise and monitoring for the cardiovascular assessment we offer; just three minutes of a patient’s time. It is simple, painless, and can predict deadly medical conditions before they happen.
As a leader in Bio-identical Hormone Restoration Therapy (BHRT), the medical professionals at IgniteRx know the important role hormones play in the human body, including keeping your heart healthy and strong. If your cardiovascular assessment results predict elevated stress levels or heart problems, balancing your hormone levels may help. Our staff will then test your hormone levels and get you started on the path to better physical and mental health.
