Mirroring Dr. Cheney’s unpublished findings, both Newton and Miwa have also found reduced diastolic volume (30%). The diastolic phase of the heart cycle is the filling phase. During diastole, the ventricles relax and then, in an energy intensive process, expand so that they can fill with oxygen enriched blood. Reduced diastolic volume or preload indicates that the heart is not being filled as much as normal.
