Ancient Medicine Made Modern

The “Case of the Day”  is a patient I’ve been treating for years to keep his allergies away.  It has worked well and he continues to come in monthly for a “booster.”  I use a protocol that I found which shows that this protocol (electroacupuncture at LI 11 and LI4 100Hz) improved salivary Iga and HRV.

[Review: HRV is a measure of autonomic balance /stress levels)

Each group of columns represents one clinic visit, each column 3 minutes of data.

I look at each visit for response and also over time (weeks to months).]

This is his sympathetic (fright or flight) data only.  You would expect this to be lower, and, indeed it is.
