Is the amount of heart rate variability we have important?

The simple answer is yes, but IHM Director of Research Dr. Rollin McCraty will explain why it’s such a valuable commodity and how the amount of our HRV is a key indicator of health and resiliency. He will discuss how it is measured and share some simple tests you can conduct on your own.

What You’ll Learn:

  • What is HRV and how it is measured?
  • New discoveries on the physiological sources of HRV.
  • HRV frequency bands and what they mean.
  • Common misunderstandings about HRV.
  • How your HRV reflects aging, health and resilience.
  • What “HRV coherence” is and why it’s important.
