    I’m very much impressed at your pointer in ‘Cut Your Stress’ to Biofeedback, specifically the EmWave/HeartMath monitor link. Dysautonomia as indicated by HeartRate Variability is only now being recognised as a more vital sign than simple HeartRate. Training by Resp Sinus Arrhythmia feedback is still inceptive 6 years later (although it’s 2 decades since circ.ahajournals.org/content/93/5/1043.long) !
    Nonetheless, despite validation of such infrared blood pulse monitors by James Heathers (ie the iThlete), I’m appreciating the surety of an ECG pickup such as the Polar H7 and a mobile phone app such as Elite or Grobe’s HRV Monitor.
    Apologies for the technobabble, but realising that this has become peripherical to your dietary instructionals this is merely an appreciation of your RSA insight. I’d suggest therapists interested in the concept continue via: http://www.painphysicianjournal.com
