Answers about ANSAR from Albany Spine & Brain Center

ANSAR uses heart rate variability and an analysis of your respiratory activity to help Dr. Harry Weiser, M.D., F.A.C.S., and you to determine the best way to treat:

  • Post-MI and other cardiac conditions
  • Diabetes
  • Hypertention
  • Neurologic problems
  • Syncope
  • Pregnancy
  • Anxiety/Stress
  • Circulation problems

ANSAR technology is a non-invasive nervous system assessment test that evaluates pain by measuring the automatic nervous system.

Your nervous system says a lot about your overall health.

Your automatic nervous system (ANS) is the part of your body that keeps the heart pumping, lungs taking in air, your food to digest, sweating, pupil dilation... pretty much anything your body does that you don't have to think about.  And there are two parts.

The first part is called the "sympathetic branch." It kicks in when you're feeling stressed or nervous.

The second part is known as the "parasympathetic branch," which is a fancy name for that part of your nervous system that's in control when you're sleeping or relaxing.

Believe it or not, the health of these two nervous system branches is essential to your good health, and here's why:

How your body responds to these is determined by your ANS.  If the two are not in balance with one another, injuries or illness is more likely to occur.  And the balance or lack of balance can be determined by monitoring your ANS with the new ANSAR technology available through Dr. Harry Weiser, M.D., F.A.C.S. at Albany Spine and Brain Center.
