Heart Rate Variability as Biomarker of Prevention and Resilience: A Year Long Study of Migraine Patients in the Acupuncture Clinic This is the full manuscript with references for my submission last July to the Journal of Medical Acupuncture.  They turned it down, but I’m stashing it here for the record and also because even though…

Heart Rate Variability as a Biomarker for Resilience and Prevention: Data

In the latest issue of Medical Acupuncture they highlighted the importance of Acupuncture as a preventative and a way to optimize health.  I’m preparing a journal article to show that HRV improves, stress decreases in migraineurs who have been successfully treated.  This data is over patient visits for at least a year.  I tried to…

Stress reduction Na.Am Edition: Tales from the Clinic

This is data from a patient who I’ve treated in the past.  She always has a profound sense of calm and relaxation from treatment. So the data shows a decrease in stress during treatment and some reduction over time.  If you also notice, she has a pronounced increase in her stress levels during needling.  This…

Robots No Better than Traditional Surgery for Cancer Patients

I need to put a new tab on my blog called “Boys and Their Toys”.  Just kidding!  I don’t need the backlash from the boys and their toys…  I did a previous post on the perils of robotic surgery here.  I’m sure that these companies would love nothing better than being able to promise the…

TAVNS and Acupuncture in the Clinic: J.L. and C.H. edition

After I used TAVNS on these patients in the same day, I realized they had some things in common. Both very athletic and hard workers.  One patient comes in for hot flashes/Pms, the other anxiety.  Both of them had a pronounced drop in their LF/HF with the TAVNS.  Is it reproducible?  We will see.  I’m…

HRV in the Clinic: R.Tr edition

This is data from a new patient’s first visit.  She has a hypersensitive vagal response, so can feel ill/nauseated and dizzy under certain conditions.  This case may prove to be out an outlier of what I usually see in the clinic. I usually try to increase vagal activity/decrease sympathetic activity. In this case I may…

HRV Stress Levels in Acupuncture Clinic: Na.Am edition

This is an almost picture perfect example of an overall decrease in stress levels with acupuncture.  This, of course, does not always happen. But this data illustrates a few aspects evaluating  the data that I’ve been interested in. Her overall HRV RMSSD and Pnn50 are midrange from 25-40, and .07 to .25 respectively.  With this…

Heart Rate Variability with Acupuncture: Ma.Co. revisit

This is the subsequent visits from this patient.  He’s feeling better, with less anxiety. As we mentioned before, because of his relative high RMSSD and Pnn50, the DFAα1 can be more representative of the autonomic response.  So you can see the spikes in stress levels after treatment.  But if you look over time with the…
