1 in 3 of us will suffer from a stroke or heart attack. There is often no warning sign of heart disease which can make it deadly.
If you have heart disease in your family or you are just interested to know more about your cardiovascular health and find out your REAL biological age, then this is the test for you!
Chronic stress and poor diet can have a damaging effect on your arteries, increasing the risk of heart attack and stroke. Arteries are the blood vessels that deliver oxygen-rich blood from the heart to the organs and tissues of the body. Ideally, we want them to be soft and elastic to enable blood to flow properly.
For years, the medical community has accepted that many of the problems associated with aging, heart attacks, and strokes are because our arteries stiffen and narrow, restricting the blood flow and oxygen supply to the skin, heart and other vital organs.
I am trained and registered by the company Turn Back Time to use a unique medical test (using class II medical equipment) to assess and track arterial stiffness. The results may provide early warning to cardiovascular problems. The equipment along with specialized computer software also calculates your real biological age. On completion of the test, you will receive a report detailing the results which includes, arterial stiffness, blood pressure, BMI and your biological age.
Once we have the results I can advise you in a further consultation on diet, lifestyle and supplements to support you. A retest can then track the progression and hopefully improvement of your arterial health.
This test is non-invasive and the equipment uses a blood pressure cuff to take the measurements required.
We can all benefit from a greater understanding of our arterial health. But if you are have any of the following then get in touch today for a test:
- Stressful work or homelife
- Family history of cardiovascular disease
- High blood pressure
- High cholesterol
- Poor memory
- Loss of skin elasticity / wrinkles
- Decreased libido
- Weight gain
- Lack of energy
- Shortness of breath
How Does It Work?
The device measures changes in blood volume caused by the pulse wave. By detecting the pulse wave pattern and calculating the volume of blood being delivered, along with arterial softness, the amount of oxygen being delivered to the skin and other vital organs can be ascertained. Results are then analysed by specialist computer software and the client’s biological age is calculated.
When an artery of normal stiffness is measured, the pulse wave generated during deflation of the cuff first appears when cuff pressure approaches systolic blood pressure. The pulse wave then rises and after reaching its highest point, decreases gradually. The softness of the artery and the volume of blood delivered by one cardiac output determine the size of the pulse wave. The device can detect when the disposition of the artery being measured differs from that of a normal artery. This is because arterial hardening begins when the normally soft side of the artery wall suffers a breach. The area thickens with collagen and consequently, a change occurs in the mechanical laws of the arterial walls.
