What happens to when you are deficient in Vitamin D, B12, B Growth Factors & Essential Minerals

This post has been created from a mass of accumulated research and personal experience. I have tried to put it together in a simple manner, but feel I have failed miserably, however, it is an honest effort to present clarity on a wide reaching topic – and I believe it does present suffient data to support a programme of wellbeing that focuses on nutrition. I am currently working on a new learning/training/workshop and scheme of work that pulls together emotional/behavioural intelligence with physical health and fitness – I am hoping this will be completed before the end of March 2023. In the meantime please take from what is below what you can – but know this – “when you put back that what you are lacking you can correct the real cause of much physical, mental and emotional dysfunction.

Thank You.

Mr. P

The following insights assume that other than the deficiency in question, you are as healthy as possible in all other respects (which for most people would be quite the opposite).

Recent scientific studies of Vitamin D increase & deficiencies:

N.B. Recent studies in the USA indicate that about 20% of white adults and 75% of darker skinned adults have a severe deficiency in Vitamin D. In another recent study ( –

It has been established that almost one billion people worldwide have low levels of vitamin D and approximately 20% of the population in the UK have a vitamin D deficiency. 60% of the population are considered as having insufficient levels of vitamin D.

Customers testing for Vitamin D with Vitall show that the UK average Vitamin D level is 76.8 nmol/L. This is inline with previous estimations, with as many as 21.9% of people having results indicating a deficiency. (Optimum levels are 150nmol/L – 200nmol/L), however, The National Institutes of Health (NIH) recommends an average daily intake of only 400–800 IU – WHY IS THIS?

  • A combined analysis of multiple studies with nearly 60,000 participants, found that even a slight increase in Vitamin D levels (above the recommended daily intake) reduced early deaths by 7% – this is an increase in about 6 years for an 85 year old – increasing death until 91 years old!
  • Similarly, increasing the daily intake of Vitamin D reduced hip and non-spine fractures  by about 20%; furthermore, a daily increase preserved muscle fibres and reduced the risk of falls by 19%.
  • Increased daily Vitamin D was also shown to inhibit tumors, especially canerous one’s from the breast, ovary, colon, prostate and brain.
  • A study of 307,000 Europeans found a 25% reduction in lifespan for those with very low Vitamin D deficiency – this is a decrease in about 21 years for an 85 year old – dying at 64!
  • Another study of 407,000 Europeans found an increase in dementia of 54% for those with Vitamin D deficiency.
  • A 20 year study on 83,000 women showed a 13% increased risk of developing Type 2 Diabetes; furthermore, this increased to 33% when they were also low in calcium. Children who regularly took increased Vitanin D during infancy lowered the risk of type 1 diabetes by 90%.
  • Studies on cardiovascular disease, strokes, the immune system and inflammation showed those with the lowest levels were at the highest risk and those with the highest levels had the least risk.
  • A study on 25,000 men and women aged over 50, showed a reduction in autoimmune conditions including rheumatoid arthritis, psoriasis, polymyalgia rheumatica and thyroid disease.

Details of all these studies is available at –

Specific Research on children and young people:

  • Increases in vitamin D have been shown not to influence  growth, body composition, or pubertal development – this is significant in supporting its supplementation and maintaining general homeostasis. (
  • Vitamin D deficiency and insufficiency are found frequently in adolescents with severe mental illness. Vitamin D deficiency has been linked to an increased risk of developing schizophrenia. In one study of adolescents admitted to an acute mental health facility, those who were vitamin D deficient were 3½ times more likely to have psychotic features when compared to vitamin D sufficient patients []. In another review of psychiatric patients, those with the lowest levels of vitamin D (<20 ng/mL) were more likely to be male, of Middle East, South-East Asian, or African ethnicity, and had diagnoses of autism and schizophrenia. When supplemented with 1000 to 4000 IU of vitamin D, many had clinical improvement []. (
  • The medical journal BMJ Open concluded that – “There has been a marked and sustained increase in vitamin D supplementation prescribing in children in UK primary care. Our data suggests that national guidelines on vitamin D supplementation for children are not consistently followed by GPs” – this is significant as the proposed protocol from Mr. P includes supplementation of vitamin D at much higher levels than the RDA (
  • Vitamin D has been shown to affect mental health on children and young people. The conclusion from research was –

The vast majority of assessed studies, including the most prominent ones (based on the NOS score) supported potential positive influence of vitamin D on mental health in children. Vitamin D intake within a properly balanced diet or as a supplementation, except for a safe sun exposure, should be indicated as an element supporting mental health in children, so it should be recommended to meet the required 25(OH)cholecalciferol blood level in order to prevent or alleviate mental health problems. (

  • Further research concluded –

Vitamin D deficiency and insufficiency are both highly prevalent in adolescents with severe mental illness. The preliminary associations between vitamin D deficiency and presence of psychotic features warrant further investigation as to whether vitamin D deficiency is a mediator of illness severity, result of illness severity, or both. (

Vitamin D tests and correction of subsequent deficient levels are the basis of the amazing protocol called RightSleep from Dr Stasha Gominak (

She has highlighted Vitamin D deficiency as the cause of poor sleep due to disrupted gut microbiome, deficient B growth factors (what we know as the B Vitamins) and poor performance of the mitochondria.

Mr. P has bought into her support workbook and has personally experienced the benefits of her focused research and refinements from over 5000 clients using the Right Sleep Protocol.

Mr. P’ and his wife tested their Vitamin D for the first time in their lives in February 2023 (they had levels @ 33nmol/L and 15nmol/L respectively). Thye have since followed this protocol and seen a significant increase in their levels. They have also seen their REM and Deep Sleep increase from levels around 20% of total sleep to levels above 45% (and that was within the first month). Over 32% of their total sleep time is now in deep sleep and this now provides greater time for physical repair and rejuvination to take place. Similarly more than 13% of the time is now in REM sleep (compared with 5% previously) and this allows more time for emotional and mental overload to calm down – it allows for clarity and creativity. Such improvements are significant because it is only during extended periods of Deep and REM sleep that correction of deficient minerals, hormones and growth factor levels and metabolic flexibility can be of full benefit. This means correction of deficiencies and flexibility are only optimised with optimised sleep patterns.

Recent scientific studies of microbiome and Vitamin B deficiencies:

A recent conclusion from research on vitamin B’s and mental conditions was that –

There is increasing consensus that nutrient status is an important modifiable factor in many neurological and psychiatric conditions. This present review provides evidence that B group vitamin supplementation (either alone or with a multivitamin) may also benefit mood in healthy and at-risk individuals. (

According to Science Direct a “low intake of B-vitamins is associated with poor adolescent mental health and behaviour” (

According to WiseOwl Health –B vitamins can benefit both our physical and mental health. Recent studies have proven that they can help to combat anxiety, depression and stress and improve your mood.” (

Other results from research on specific B vitamins found out that – “Vitamin B6 supplementation reduced self-reported anxiety and induced a trend towards reduced depression, as well as increased surround suppression of visual contrast detection, but did not reliably influence the other outcome measures. Vitamin B12 supplementation produced trends towards changes in anxiety and visual processing”. (

In an interesting article Remedy Psychiatry wrote –

“As a group, the B vitamins perform important tasks in metabolic pathways, and are therefore essential components of a person’s health. Their collective effects are important to various aspects of brain function, such as energy production, DNA synthesis/repair, genome modification (methylation), and the production of different brain chemicals. The more heavily researched types of vitamin B include B12, B9 (folate or folic acid), and B6, and various studies suggest they may individually and collectively impact mental health. One proposed mechanism by which vitamin B affects mental health involves folate (vitamin B9) and vitamin B12 in what is referred to as the folate cycle. A deficiency in vitamin B12 results in a folate deficiency and a disruption in the folate cycle. This disruption in the folate cycle, in turn, disrupts the conversion of certain substances into brain chemicals important to mood, such as serotonin, dopamine, melatonin, noradrenaline, and adrenaline. In short, the healthy production of the neurotransmitters that regulate mood is, in part, dependent on adequate amounts of vitamin B12 and vitamin B9 (folate) being present in the body. Therefore, research that has studied this metabolic pathway has suggested that deficiencies in vitamins B12 and B9 (folate) may play a role in making an individual more susceptible to mood disturbances.”  (

Summary of microbiome functions:

The microbiome changes depending on how you were born, how you were fed, what minerals you lacked at birth and subsequently what minerals you now provide or remain deficient in and your metabolic flexibility as an adult. The healthy microbiome (the main 4 types that provide you with optimal functioning – yes they are in control of your physical, mental and emotional states) need optimal levels of Vitamin D to survive. When they are deficient they die off and are replaced with unheathy microbiomes – that then cause you to function badly (physically, mentally and emotionally). When the healthy microbiome are in the majority (when in control they produce for you all the B Growth Factors  you need known as the B vitamins), they also control much of the signalling that goes on between the vagus nerve and the brain – such as the production and timing of setotonin, melatonin, dopamine, oxytoxin and others. The relationship between healthy microbiome and a flexible metabilic system is very strong. In healthy humans science is starting to evidence that higher levels of circulating ketones interact with healthy microbiome in immune signalling. This interaction is especially beneficial within the mitochondrial (the energy powerbase for humans). The liver can produce up to 300g of Ketone bodies per day in an average adult, which is approximately 5%-20% of the total energy expenditure – the remaining energy requirements may be derived from fat stores, or in lean humans from the recirculation and degradation of damaged and dead protein substrates (only maximised through effective autophagy and during optimal sleep cycles). Apart from passive energy carriers, BHB the main Ketone body, is also involved in multiple signalling functions at the cell surface and intracellular, affecting gene expression, lipid and protein metabolism, neuronal function, and metabolic rate by direct or indirect mechanisms – thus exogenous BHB ketones may be used to enhance signalling potential as well as for fuel. The proportion of healthy and unhealthy microbiome are mainly influenced by what you eat – sugar and carbs produce unhealthy microbiome, proteins, nutrients and Ketone bodies produce healthy microbiome and signalling. In addition to sunlight, they are also influenced by how much oxygen you absorb and how much you exercise or are sedentary.

More details below . . .

According to the National Human Genome Research Institute (NHGRI), which is the driving force for advancing genomics research at the National Institutes of Health (NIH), the largest biomedical research agency in the world:

The microbiome is the community of microorganisms (such as fungi, bacteria and viruses) that exists in a particular environment. In humans, the term is often used to describe the microorganisms that live in or on a particular part of the body, such as the skin or gastrointestinal tract. These groups of microorganisms are dynamic and change in response to a host of environmental factors, such as exercise, diet, medication and other exposures. (

If you want to learn more or even teach others about the microbiome then the following link may provide you with support –

This particular link is a great starting point –

Deficiences in the B growth factors and or an inability to maximise their potential can cause you to function with less ease – your physical, mental and emotional states will be impaired:

Vitamin D provides the energy for the 4 main healthy microbiome types that provides energy to sustain the B Growth Factors – so everything is interlinked as regards signalling and energy:

According to Science Direct (

B growth factors are often called the energy vitamins because they are important for metabolism and help your mitochondria convert food into energy. These complex mitochondrial functions include: the Krebs cycle (converting food into energy), the electron transport chain (generation of ATP energy), and beta oxidation (fat burning). Several of the B vitamins also help with hemoglobin and RBC (Red Blood Count) production, which helps keep our organs and mitochondria well oxygenated.

The B vitamins include:

Vitamin B1 (thiamin) helps produce acetyl coenzyme A (energy source of the Krebs cycle).
Vitamin B2 (riboflavin) helps with the electron transport chain, Krebs cycle, and fat burning.
Vitamin B3 (niacin) conveys energy from the Krebs cycle to the electron transport chain.
Vitamin B5 (pantothenic acid) helps burn fat and carbohydrates.
Vitamin B6 (pyridoxine) helps with hemoglobin synthesis and gluconeogenesis.
Vitamin B7 (biotin) helps with multiple metabolic processes.
Vitamin B9 (folate) helps RBC production and prevents neural tube birth defects.
Vitamin B12 (cobalamins) helps RBC production and nerve sheaths.

Without all of the B growth factors functioning correctly then the body and brain will not function correctly and with ease – it will function with dis-ease.

Mr. P and his wife are currently following a protocol and their own enhanced programme (VFP#1) to correct all these deficiences. You can now do the same by following them!

Once your sleep is optimised and you have identified and corrected deficiency with B12 and other B growth factors then your microbiome and mitochondria have a strong foundation for optimising their performance.

the human mind

Stress relief is this way – I am writing this because I love life and love being amongst others who love life and know how to overcome stress – even more so when everyone is mentally, emotionally and physically without limitation and in flow.

If and when I or others perceive or experience a challenge that restircts flow, then rather than allow this to linger and cause diminshing effects to thoughts, feelings and actions, I seek to correct the deficiency.

My solution is to correct by relenishing that which is deficient

Amazing but true – Mr. P can now predict the mineral deficiencies you lack from your date of birth and the physical and mental symtons that might prevail. Furthermore, he can check this with blood test analysis, and put in place measures to corrrect it.

Mr. P can also predict what mental and emotional challenges you are likely to face and what you can do best to overcome them and create more ease.

More of this within what he calls his VFP BLUEPRINT!

Why consider Mr. P as someone who could support you with health and fitness as well as with fear, trauma, and chronic stress?

Mr. P has recently completed various courses and training that have clarified to him the interconnection between the physical, mental, and emotional expressions of life. When we are deficient it causes malfunction, and this manifests as illness and disease of the mind and body. If we also experience type 1, type 2, or type 3 trauma and or chronic stress or a physical injury, then we have less energy to fully recover and become stronger.

His recent insights, training, and courses have included:

  • Food intolerance, gut biome, vitamin and mineral sensitivity test via hair analysis.
  • Optimising sleep and the gut microbiome (Right Sleep Course from Dr. Stasha Gominak)
  • Full blood panel analysis and optimization course (Dr. Ekberg’s Ultimate Blood Work Course)
  • Qualified phlebotomist course – in readiness for blood testing (March /April 2023)
  • Rapid Fat Burning Course (Dr. Berg)
  • How to Bulletproof your Immune System (Dr. Berg)
  • How to Restore Your Energy with Bioenergetics (Harry Massey & Steve McCardell)
  • Metabolic Flexibility & Nutritional Optimisation – Marty Kendall
  • The Protein: Energy Ratio (Dr. Ted Naiman)
  • Changing Behaviour: Techniques for Tier 2 Adult Weight Management Services (Public Health England)
  • Emotional Coaching (
  • AHCT Therapy Training (5-day Compass) for The Assessment and Healing of Complex Trauma
  • CAHMS Trauma Training (via Madiba and Bradford Health Service)
  • Etymology and The Wonders of The Human Body (George W. Carey)
  • Numerology for Decoding Behaviour & Numerology for Healing (Michael Brill)
  • PEMF (Pulsed Electro Magnetic Frequency ) and Health (Dr. Pawluk)

He has combined this with his qualification and 3 years of experience as a Trauma and Stress Therapist (SSP) using Polyvagal theory. Balance this with his 9 years+ of practical experience in fasting, exercise, and adapting to a more flexible metabolism – using HRV and blood tests as objective biomarkers of results – and 30+ years of coaching, instructing, mentoring, and therapeutic experience, it is reasonable to assume he has some knowledge and experience of improving health, fitness, and wellbeing, especially with those who find life more challenging or have experienced a physical injury.

He has combined all the above with insights and practical knowledge of reversing insulin resistance and chronic stress whilst improving social engagement and interaction with challenging young people and supportive adults.

Some of the negative effects of Covid-19 include:

  • Struggling to deal with loss and / or feeling isolated or lonely..
  • Joint pain, loss of energy and weakness.
  • Feeling unsafe and not knowing why.
  • Confusion and frustration with not understanding what is going on.
  • A lack of trust with people, situations and places.
  • The lack of stucture and order and not knowing what to do with your time.
  • Brain fog - not being able to concentrate or think clearly.
  • Struggling to have longer conversations and discussions about positive and creative opportunities - and too much negative talk.
  • Couples and families stuggle interacting together due to a lack of personal and joint purpose in life.

The severe isolation measures imposed by governments have been traumatic to the psyche of people; to the extent, many have the fear of getting tests done and or divulging the results to authorities for fear of loss of income or further isolation. Others live every moment on the edge of media releases and feel totally reliant on vaccinations and guidance and rules on how to live.


Society has created a situation where many people have an overdependence on other people for guidance and regulations on how they live. This can be clearly seen with those people who have retired or are suddenly not working and do not know what to do with their time. For many people walking the dog, watching some form of day time TV and cooking, represent the limits of their activity. Their social interaction and discussions are based around such activity or in discussing the limitaions imposed on them and everyone else -

"very few people do something that is both creative and of benefit for themsleves and others; furthermore, they do not discuss the creative process for making this happen - they have lost (or never developed) this self-relience and love of life - they are lost within an 'auto-pilot' existence" -


When individals within a relationship or within a family, educational, work or team environment, lack any purpose in life or don't have any creative ideas to stimulate their emotions or thoughts, then they are more dependent on external forces to influence their behaviour. The majority of outside forces are negative, therfore most of the time people will be negative. Covid-19 is not the cause of this negativity - it highlights the hidden problems faced by most people and society.

This post provides a short practical instruction on how to conduct a quick coherence / QUICK CALMING/POSITIVITY PRACTICE:

The optimal times for doing this practice are:

  • first thing in the morning whilst still in bed (before getting up)
  • First thing when you get to work or school etc.
  • every 90 mins once you are active and the day has begun
  • when you get back in bed to settle for a sleep.

It is perfect when combined with other people (especially smaller groups) just before a meeting/lesson/meal.  It may even be used by a family group or a group of friends or work/school/college friends - perhaps in conjunction with an agreed 'positive statement/affirmation'.

Whilst it helps to reduce stress; with the 'the more advanced breathing progression' it is most beneficial in promoting a feeling of wellbeing and positivity; and in activating your parasympathetic nervous system (your feel good system). Once activated this may lead to positive stimulation that facilitates exceptional mental and physical performance, or, if you are relaxing, it will lower your heart rate, lower your brain frequency and promote better rest and natural sleep patterns. When a calm and positive state is maintained for longer and longer periods (with monitoring and practice) then it leads to 'flow' and extends the 'optimal arousal zone'.

Quick Coherence only takes 1 - 2 minutes (it is best done with your eyes closed):

Welcome - By following this short process you will feel calm, positive and energised. The process will work even better when you smile during the process and continue smiling after it has finished - let us begin - you may keep your eyes open or close them - do whatever helps you focus . . .

  • Focus your attention on your heart just to the left of centre in your chest. If it helps, place the fingers of your right hand over the heart so you can physically feel your heart beat - then relax.
  • As you breathe in, visualise the air going into your heart. As you visualise breathing in, count to between 4 and 7 and with each count visualise your heart expanding your belly. Continue doing this until you find your own natural timing. Once you have established your natural breathing in cycle move to step 3.
  • As you breath out and feel your belly go down, visualise either:
    • a special place that makes you feel good; or
    • visualise what you are doing that makes you feel so good;
    • and /or visualise a person or group of people that makes your love come out.
    • as you become more familiar with this, and as it becomes easier to do - focus on giving appreciation or gratitude to someone and allow your love to come out.
  • More advanced breathing progression - once you have become familiar with all of the above - then as you continue with the heart felt focus - PROLONG the breathing out stage, so it is between 3 and 5 seconds longer than your breathing in stage. Then continue this staggered breathing cycle for between 1 and 3 mins. This will physiologically activate your parasympathetic nervous system and stimulate creative and happy hormones.

Adopt quick coherence as a pattern of positive performance:

The quick coherence practice, including the more advanced breathing progression, may also be used in the build up to a high performance related activity - especially as a precursor for being in the flow zone. This is perfect for activities such as climbing or skill related performance or even high intense muscular activities such as arm wrestling, powerlifting, strongman event and surprisingly combat sports - because the more you can perceive stress as a positive opportunity, the greater you will maximise your optimal flow zone perform to your maximum potential. When stress is perceived as being negative, it increases anxiety, increases muscle tension, reduces reaction times and speed and reduces power. Negative stress leads to a quicker loss of energy and reduces mental clarity and sharpness.

Smile and be positive.

Group / team coherence:

Imagine the benefits to a team if you all acknowledged gratitude for one another prior to starting a more physical warm up or at the end of a warm just before you went out to compete. This would minimise stress and allow you to perform at even higher levels of intensity for much longer.  

When Phil Jackson began coaching the Chicago Bulls - and later the Los Angeles Lakers - he says he used the Zen philosophy of mindfulness to help build both teams.


Coherence practice is used by the NHS in Derbyshire:

Quick coherence may be used to overcome feelings of anxiety, stress and help calm you or someone else down when they are feeling their behaviour is becoming more challenging to others.


More scientific research on this is available at -

Monitoring and measuring coherence can be done using new technology and with the correct insights.

Elimination is the lowest level of consciousness and calibrates <20:

The strategy for getting yourself or someone else out of this stage is provided below:

The VFP strategy for achieving higher/more positive 'natural patterns / cycles of being' is to re-tune your mental and emotional energy fields, so they do the 'right things' on an automatic basis (using your autonomic nervous system), rather than a cognitive basis (having to think and feel if what you are doing is working).

This approach is more significant when dealing with those at the lowest levels of consciousness. Such individuals 

  • You must have natural cycles of imbalance in your life. These should be positive in maximising you as a physical being. Look at every situation as an opportunity!
  • You should maximise the functioning and capabilities of your physical body/mind.
  • You should maximise your individual creativity and find purpose in all that you do.
  • You should be your best and give yourself for the benefit of all.

When you do this you will find love will allowed to flow from you and you will attract it!

You can’t tune into Love when you have negative forces influencing you - 'love is felt through tuning in to the truth'.

Love is not felt when someone is holding you back and not caring for you as best they can.

You cannot hold other people responsible for their imperfections in respect of your relationship. You need to break negative cycles with people - this does not mean you have to stop being with them, or loving or caring for them; but it does mean you must take responsibility yourself for following more positive natural cycles. If you are not capable of allowing love to come out of yourself for your TRUE SPIRITUAL BEING then your imperfect physical being will dominate your life. You must learn to let love come out by turning negative thoughts and emotions into opportunities to help yourself and others.

You must stop feeling sorry for yourself and you must stop using others as an excuse.

You are not an 'imprisoned physical being' - you may feel like one, and may be treated like one - but you have the opportunity to change this.

When your mind thinks with moving pictures rather than thinks with words (self-talk), then the results/benefits are significantly better.

Mental imagery is a more intuitive process than an intellectual one. It allows you to influence and take control of your unconscious and subconscious; whereas self-talk and worded affirmations focus your influence within your conscious mind.

For most people the language of imagery is commonly experienced during REM sleep at night or whilst daydreaming. However, becoming aware of images whilst waking simply requires us to give it more focus than we currently do. Most people self-talk rather than self image!

Scientific research confirms the benefits of imagery for improving health:

Doctors prescribe pharmaceuticals that control the mind through the body; eg. tranquilizers, antidepressants and anaesthetics. In much the same way, we can use the mind to control the body - and imagery is far more effective at doing this than self talk. There are at least two major scientific journals devoted to imagery research; one from Marquette University (The Journal of Mental Imagery) and one from Yale University (Imagination, Cognition and Personality).

Mental imagery may be used as a process for reacting to experiences (negative or positive), however, it is more powerful when used as a way of 'creating new experiences'. After successive repetitions/cycles (21 days being a natural cycle time that changes behaviour) then the physical body attunes with the mind to make the mental imagery reality - THIS IS A PROVEN BENEFIT!

Within the VFP Digital Tuning Chart we have created audio links that explains how to use imagery to help create your own good health (this is an ongoing development).


HRV (Heart Rate Variability):

In terms of 'measuring SPIRITUAL BEING REALISATION' or 'SPIRITUAL COHERENCE' - it may be measured on a physical basis by HRV (Heart Rate Variability). However, what you have to realise is that SPIRITUAL COHERENCE extends beyond your physical being and HRV is therefore limited in its potential to measure the higher levels of consciousness. It would be reasonable to estimate that below the level of 200 HRV is low and not smooth. Peak HRV will start and continue at a level of approx 250. Above this level HRV will peak but it will not indicate your level of consciousness - this can be better estimated using the VFP Digital Tuning Chart.

The similarity between SPIRITUAL COHERENCE and HRV, is that HRV maintains 'high activity, smooth sine wave cycles' regardless of the heart rate or brain wave frequency (excitatory or inhibitory) - and SPIRITUAL COHERENCE maintains 'natural/balanced cycles of smooth waves - that can be excitatory or inhibitory' - so they are very similar to measure!

When SPIRITUAL COHERENCE occurs, on a physical basis, the heart and brain waves become more synchronised / tuned in to one another on an autonomic basis. The important aspect to measure is not whether the heart or brain frequencies are high or low - but that the 'HRV is high and smooth', thus showing a willingness and readiness for either positive/excitatory or negative/inhibitory states. Good coherence indicates a wide range of optimal flow zone frequencies (an ability to perceive stress as a positive challenge, rather than something negative to overcome).

Coherence and a good HRV are indicators of:

  • Positive relationships.
  • Creative initiatives between positive people.
  • Problem solving and group decision making.
  • Bonding and mutual support.

Quick coherence practice is only part of the VFP Tuning Protocol; By following the VFP retuning protocol you will reduce and prevent the negative effects of stress, fatigue and exhaustion, sleep disruption, anxiety and burnout - you will feel calm, positive and energised.

VFP uses the Inner Balance App in conjunction with the Bluetooth sensor from Heart Math to measure HRV. By recording your HRV before any interventions/therapy sessions, during the sessions and after the sessions we can better evaluate the impact of our VFP Protocol.
