Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)
1. Why test autonomic nervous system (ANS)?

ANS is the most important feedback control system for major organs in the body.  
When there is change in body needs (mental or physical), ANS must be activated to
help organ systems to re-adjust.  ANS affects heart rate, digestion, respiration rate,
salivation, perspiration, diameter of the pupils, micturition (urination), and sexual
arousal.  About 90% of body activities are modulated by ANS during sleep as well.
Since ANS performs its functions largely below the level of consciousness, when it
fails to act or becomes imbalanced, most people do not recognize the origin of the
(HRV) and the sympathetic / parasympathetic balance ratio (LF/HF) can be measured
within 7 minutes.
