Heart Sound Recorder Test

Your Heart is the Most Important Muscle in the Body.

Every day, your heart beats 100,000 times, sending 2,000 gallons of blood flowing through your body.

HSRThe Heart Sound Recorder is a computer-based, general wellness monitor which uses the principles of auscultation to observe heart sounds. The heart’s reaction to stressors (such as chemical, nutritional and emotional) can be measured using this type of device.

Certain types of heart stressors can be monitored by seeing the Rate, Rhythm, and Tone of the heart cycle.

Why the Heart Sound Recorder?

The Heart Sound Recorder (HSR) was developed in 1937 by Dr. Royal Lee, founder of Standard Process. Dr. Lee recognized the significance of the heart as a diagnostic indicator when he designed the Endocardiograph, an earlier version of the Heart Sound Recorder. This cardiovascular assessment tool allows the heart sound to be graphed and provide us with valuable information:

  • If your heart functioning optimally
  • If your bodies chemistry balanced
  • If your body’s nutritional deficiencies are causing stress on your heart
  • Overall motor nerve support and blood viscosity
  • Overall motor nerve support and blood viscosity
  • Specific nutritional support your body is requiring

The EKG primarily indicates if the heart tissue has undergone any trauma or permanent damage on an electrical basis. The EKG does not analyze valvular function, muscle efficiency, motor nerve function and blood viscosity. The EKG’s sole purpose is to diagnose disease, while the HSR looks at your heart function to analyze nutrient deficiency, improve health and longevity.

The Heart Sound Recorder provides a picture of heart sounds and analyzes heart function on a graph. We can measure the heart sound as a reflection of balanced body chemistry, nutrition and overall function of the body’s systems.

The Heart Sound Recorder analysis can be affected by many of our systems including circulatory, adrenal, kidney function and gall bladder. Heart function and sound is also affected by vitamins, minerals, essential fatty acids, and toxins. It is important to emphasize that the HSR reflects efficiency and deficiencies of heart function.

The Heart Sound Recorder can help detect dysfunctions and deficiencies, thereby helping you make appropriate lifestyle and dietary changes to improve health and wellness.

Rate, Rhythm, Tone

Three Key Indicators of Heart Health and Function

To function optimally, it is vital for the heart to have proper nutrients to maintain its correct rate, rhythm and tone. The Heart Sound Recorder is a general wellness cardiac monitor with a specialized microphone that is placed over each of the four valves of the heart to display specific sounds and movement.

Your Autonomic Nervous System (ANS) controls the RATE at which your heart beats. The heart rate of your heart is how fast or slow your heart beats. The optimal heart rate is 60-80 beats per minute. Several bodily functions are directed by your autonomic nervous system such as digestion, heart rate and blood pressure. These functions are strongly influenced by diet, vitamins, minerals, and other lifestyle factors.

The rhythm of your heart is the “lub dub” sound which pertains to how regular your heart beats. The “lub” sound is associated with S1 and “dub” (S2) should beat in a steady and consistent rhythm. The sounds of the heart should have a specific work to rest ratio. Your heart should be resting twice as long as it is working. Observations using the Heart Sound Recorder can be made to see if your heart is working too hard, or not working hard enough.

The rhythm of your heart can be supported with proper nutrition and essential nutrients, which help balance heart sounds and function.

The tone of your heart refers to the strength of the ventricle contractions. This includes the opening and closing of the heart chambers. Using the Heart Sound Recorder we can observe the tone of your heart based on the height and width of the “lub dub” sounds.

What You Can Learn About your Heart from the Heart Sound Recorder:

  • Heart Rate – is it too fast, too slow, or just right?
  • Heart Rhythm
  • Heart Tone – is it STRONG enough with no signs of weakness or is there need for improvement?
  • Autonomic Nervous System Balance – Are you constantly “hitting the gas pedal” or “riding the brakes”? to determine health of your parasympathetic and sympathetic nervous system.
  • Nutritional Support for the Heart – individualized nutrition counseling, supplement recommendations and exercise considerations are provided to improve your quality of life.
