Heart rate variability (HRV) is a clinical test that gives a measure of the resilience and dynamic range of the heart and autonomic nervous system. It is used in holistic medicine to monitor stress and certain disease states and conditions. HRV measurements can predict the likelihood of a heart attack or other chronic illness. A variety of cases will be covered showing before and after various interventions, including yoga, qigong, meditation, phototherapy, nutritional supplementation, prescription drugs, cell phone use, and tobacco smoking.
