What’s behind the idea of Autonom Health?
“I have always been fascinated by how accurately we gynecologists can determine how a child is doing before and during birth. As long as the distance between each heartbeat keeps varying in the child, everything is fine. As soon as the heart beats too evenly, something must be done. The pregnant woman changes her position, her breathing rhythm, may be given oxygen or a drug may be administered to temporarily weaken the contractions. In case the measure taken is effective, it is immediately reflected in the heartbeat – the variability increases back to normal levels. Virtually every birth used to be monitored by midwives and doctors using Pinard’s ear trumpet, a simple wooden instrument that allows the baby’s heart rhythm to be assessed. Today, this role is assumed by the so-called cardiotocogram (from Latin cardio “heart” and Greek tokos “birth”). An ultrasound sensor records the fetal heartbeat, and a contraction pressure sensor records the labor activity of the pregnant woman. The principle of the variability of the heartbeat sequence as an unmistakable indicator of the actual condition of a human being, as an immediate sign of his momentary reaction to the sum of all consciously and unconsciously influencing and relieving life circumstances, this phenomenon, which already exists prenatally, remains with every human being – until his death. So what could be more obvious than to use this gift of nature not only before your own birth, but throughout your life, to determine with certainty, where you gain or lose vitality. Such a true “bio-psycho-socio-emotional feedback” could serve one – whenever one wants – as a compass to steer the direction of one’s life always in accordance with one’s very own current needs. You could always find out with certainty for how long and how intensively you should work and sleep. Whether breaks are really effective, which sports, which hobbies, even which friends are good for you. From which meals consumed at what intervals you get the most energy and in what way medications, supplements, alcohol, etc. etc. affect you. This chance to achieve one’s own health, performance and well-being not only from one’s own experience and with one’s own “gut feeling”, to not only question expert opinions but to gauge them, this fascinating possibility of knowing one’s life is on a safe track, has been the absolute center of my own life for 16 years now. Research in the field of heart rate variability, or HRV, is fascinating more and more scientists and users around the world. And the more knowledge is gained by using this method in all areas of life, the more it is recognized that harnessing this simple principle – inherent in every human being – will be the key technology that enables people to make deeply autonomous decisions for their lives. Increasingly simple sensors that can be used on a daily basis and without any restrictions, together with highly complex algorithms based on physiological and pathophysiological laws and a huge database, enable statements to be made about current health and performance, as well as conclusions to be drawn about the effects of past life circumstances and secure and targeted planning of one’s own future. Not only because medicine is on the verge of its greatest developmental step, namely achieving health and no longer solely fighting and preventing disease, but because we have always followed this credo and meanwhile know how to achieve this goal in terms of a new personalized medicine, our entire explanation, result and recommendation system is successfully geared towards demonstrably improving health and performance in order to simultaneously also balance imbalances and significantly support the (self-)healing of diseases. AUTONOM HEALTH GesundheitsbildungsGmbH is owned by five private shareholders. As the majority owner, CEO and Medical Director of the company, I ensure in my medical self-image that the thoughts and actions of all employees are also guided by medical ethics. The highest standards of data protection and security are – as a logical appreciation of our database – an immovable cornerstone of our corporate architecture. We feel the greatest reverence for the autonomy of the individual and recognize our importance to a democratization of health supported by trust.”
