This Company is dedicated to the most effective way to prevent heart disease and increasing longevity through accurate assessment and programs administered by specially trained health-fitness professionals.
According to American Heart Association, heart disease is the leading cause of death in America with one in every two Americans developing heart disease during their lifetime.
An estimated 5 million Americans have a non-symptomatic form of heart disease known as silent ischemia. In many cases the first symptom is a heart attack. Unfortunately, 1 out of 7 are fatal.
The safest and most effective method to prevent heart disease is to protect your heart health. Research shows that heart disease can be managed - or even reversed - with a combination of exercise, nutrition and meditation. Additionally, living a healthy lifestyle will improve your overall health and well-being.
There is an estimated 100 million Americans who are candidates for their programs. Some of the market trends in the United States include:
* An aging U.S. population
* Increasing health care costs
* Perception of lower quality "sick care"
* More active "Baby Boomers"
* Reduction in corporate benefit programs
* Epidemic of obesity
* Shift towards prevention & health-fitness promotion
* Americans are becoming more technology-oriented THE TECHNOLOGY - VARIANCE CARDIOGRAPHY
The Variance Cardiograph is capable of measuring heart damage at early stages, years before the appearance of other indicators such as high blood pressure, high cholesterol and/or chest pain.
The electric current generated by the heart each time it beats is like the flow of a river. As the water encounters obstacles such as logs and rocks the water flow will vary. In a similar manner, as the electric current flows throughout your heart it encounters damaged cells and its path will vary. Variance Cardiography is a technology that accurately detects these variances within your heart and an algorithmic scoring process gives you a basis from which to monitor and even improve on.
More than 15 years of development and Clinical Research Studies have concluded that Variance Cardiography is more accurate than the standard ECG and equal if not more accurate than the exercise stress ECG. The 10-minute resting heart fitness screen is safe, inexpensive and equally effective for both men and women. Share Structure
