It’s about herbs. It’s about health. It’s about life.
Don't we all love our hearts?
Heart is responsible for both the flow of blood and distribution of oxygen, water, nutrients, waste materials, immune cells, and hormones. It creates balance in all physical functions.
Heart is also very "emotional". It is the organ that responds to each and every emotion we experience.
And, although, brain sends messages to the heart, the heart sends many more signals to the brain. These signals affect our attention, perception, memory, and problem-solving. In fact, emotions are a very important aspect to health and particularly to the heart.
Studies have shown that anger, stress, or grief significantly affect our ability to think clearly and remember things correctly, as a result of erratic signals sent from the heart to
Studies with a heart rate monitor have also shown that emotions also affect our heart patterns.
For example, when we experience stress and negative emotions, our heart rate becomes erratic and uneven.
On the contrary, the hearts of people who were experiencing a sense of calm or positive emotions, were also calm and steady.
Extreme emotions of sadness and heartbreak damage our hearts. Countless studies have shown that isolation and loneliness can cause people to become sick, or even die, following the death of a loved one.
Negative emotions and stress physically affect the heart, hardening the vessels and arteries, leading to atherosclerosis and inflammation in the heart. Although heart problems are considered genetic, many people develop them without genetic predispositions.
