Recently a close friend has experienced two TIAs, Transient Ischemic Attacks. While not as serious as a stroke a TIA is considered a warning sign of stroke. Although it only lasts a few minutes and the symptoms are mild, most people who have a TIA are likely to suffer a full blown stroke within the next year if left unattended.
Monitoring your heart and the cardiovascular system for blockages naturally includes keeping arteries running to your brain clear and healthy. If they are towing debris that causes blood flow to diminish and nutrients are cut off to a part of the brain, you are likely to experience a TIA or worse, a stroke.
When researching the human heart the scope of study incorporates the natural connectedness of brain activity. How do we manage stress? What is our level of cognitive interpretation? What is our relationship with our self and others? How do we relate with our daily surroundings?
These things are processed emotionally as well as through avenues of thought. When heart-brain activity is combined, it is safe to say this is intuition. The solar power of the heart and brain working together lights our way with ideas, impressions and, yes – brainstorms.
Eating well is the best medicine for a healthy heart, but what does that mean? We all know what unhealthy eating is; too much fast and processed foods, or an unbalanced intake of one thing over another. But what constitutes a heart healthy diet?
There are several foods that we all should try to include in our diets on a regular basis to prevent cardiovascular disease. Healthy foods don’t need to be prepared by your local caterer to keep your vascular systems moving. Consuming whole foods and reducing processed foods from your diet is key.
One of the buzz phrases going around is “drop into your heart”. What does that mean? When you find yourself too much in your head about a situation – stop. Stop for a moment and entertain the circumstances from a different perspective. Get another view from a different source.
If we let our mind cater to our actions as the only origin for our decisions, we deny ourselves the bigger picture. Many people who operate solely from thought are missing an important advantage. When we incorporate heart into decision making we bring in another avenue of energies that elevates our communications to a much higher level of effectiveness. Referred to as energies because they cannot normally be seen by the human eye, but emit a measurable frequency field.
