Autonomic Nervous System

Patient ANS

Catch it Early

We assess your metabolic health – over 10 million Americans have diabetes and another 80 million are pre-diabetic. The slow decline of your overall health due the development of insulin resistance opens the door for diseases such as neuropathy and peripheral vascular disease. Diabetes can take a decade or more to be diagnosed, and many people are not aware of its gradual development or the impact it is having on their life.


The ANS-1 evaluates your Autonomic Nervous System for damage caused by Insulin Resistance, the development of Diabetes, and other diseases or lifestyle choices that impact your nervous system. Your Autonomic Nervous System is the part of your body that manages activities that you do not consciously control; Activities like heart rate, blood pressure, digestion, and sweating. By looking at imbalances within your Autonomic Nervous System the ANS-1 can pinpoint areas where you may be developing chronic disease. If you already are diagnosed with Diabetes, Neuropathy, Cardiovascular, or Peripheral Vascualr Disease, the ANS-1 can help your doctor manage the illness.
