Arterial Elasticity Test

How hard are your arteries?

Arterial Elasticity Index (hardening of the arteries) The Arterial Elasticity Index (AEI) is a test that measures the flexibility or hardness of arteries: this is different than arterial blockage. The AEI is measured with a modified blood pressure cuff that measures the extent of arteriosclerosis (hardness) of arteries. Using AEI, alongside conventional cardiovascular markers, we can precisely monitor your response to natural and conventional therapies. Are chelation, diet and exercise working?

This test indirectly tells us about loss of elasticity in a large number of body cells, tissues and organs. Virtually all human diseases and many chronic health problems are associated with hardening of body tissues and loss of function (to varying degrees). Any health strategy that is focused upon healthy aging and reversing sickness and disease should be objectively based upon reversing, as much as possible, loss of tissue elasticity. Loss of elasticity (increased stiffness) affects, and is affected by, a large number of factors including, but not limited to;

  • Aging
  • Toxin exposure
  • Hormonal deficiencies
  • Nutritional deficiencies
  • Malabsorption syndromes
  • Poor diet
  • Certain medications
  • Stress

A pre-arterial stiffness test and another re-test performed at some chosen point after natural therapies are begun, will prove that one's healing efforts are working. Some health conditions associated with loss of elasticity include:
