Getting To The" Heart" of the Matter

Filed Under: Heart Health

Heartbreak is never cited as a heart risk factor because it isn't considered a medical condition. Traditionally in Western medicine, concern with the mind has been left to psychiatrists and other mental health professionals.

I believe the mind, the heart, and the body are interconnected. Several enlightened cardiologists and holistic health practitioners agree with me.  That’s why we believe that no psychiatrist should limit himself to what goes on in the mind without taking into account the body’s signs and symptoms of possible mental illness. By the same token, no cardiologist or holistic practitioner should confine himself to the physical processes of the heart, for to do so is to ignore the fact that the heart is not an independent organ but one part of a total being.

Unfortunately, the sad fact is that most cardiologists treat the heart like a piece of machinery. That’s why I wrote Heartbreak & Heart Disease. I wanted to help readers like you become aware of hidden emotional causes of heart disease.
