24 hour ECG testing (Medilog)

This test provides a comprehensive analysis of the human being as a whole, combining assessment of the heart, sleep apnoea and nervous system stress via heart rate variability.

It reveals the balance between the stress side of the nervous system and the relaxation side. Thousands of research studies have looked into the impact of this marker on all aspects of health. Research also shows this is a great tool assessing the improvements in health associated with lifestyle changes.
