Heart Resonance: Why Attuning With Others Boosts Our Own Health

        Well folks, this week I’m turning 48. And because I am so incredibly grateful for the love that is present in my life as I get closer and closer to a half century ride on this planet, I’m dedicating this blog post to the healing power of attuning our heart energy with each other. We all intuitively can feel that connecting with others boosts our health, right? How much better do you feel after a warm hug from a friend, the comforting squeeze of a partner’s hand, or the joy of laughing around a dinner table …

Valentine’s Day Special Edition: Heart Health From Every Angle… Mind, Body & Soul

  Our minds and our hearts are inextricably intertwined. Mostly we can feel this on an emotional level — we can literally feel the people we love making our hearts feel warm and protected and expand in our chest. And sadly even people we are hurt by or scared of, we can feel that too — our hearts can feel colder or constricted or pound with fear in our chests. Some of you are also aware that electrically — the brain and the heart each have an electrical field and that these electrical fields overlap. This gives our brain’s electrical …

How Grounding Helps Protect Your Cardiac Function For A Lifetime

      Last week I wrote an article for you outlining how stress and trauma increases your risk for heart disease, but that this increased risk was reversible. This week, let me give you one of the best tools I know for supporting heart health — that is through grounding. Our hearts emit the strongest electromagnetic field of our entire body… thousands of times stronger than the electromagnetic field of our brains! The human heart’s electromagnetic field is measured at about 100,000 times stronger electrically (and 5,000 times stronger magnetically) than the human brain. This electomagnetic frequency that pulses …

Heart Disease In Women As A Response To Trauma

  Today I have a very interesting new study to share with you, published just this year on March 17, 2021 in JAMA Cardiology. Most studies on heart disease focus on the male population, so this one really caught my eye — specifically focusing on the link between heart disease in women with a history of trauma. Looking at almost 400,000 women, researchers identified women diagnosed with PTSD and matched them to age and cardiovascular risk correlated female controls with no history of PTSD. They then looked at ischemic heart disease outcomes, including new onset coronary artery disease, angina or …

Grounding To Support Your Heart Health

If the heartbeat of the earth resonates powerfully with your brain (as we talked about last week) …imagine what the heartbeat of the earth does for your own heart!     Your cardiovascular system is entirely electrically based, driven by the electrical impulse of the heartbeat which in turn drives the circulation through your body. This relationship has been extensively studied for the effects of grounding. The first study I want to tell you about was a double-blinded, placebo-controlled study of 40 patients. They had electrodes connected to their feet, and half of them were grounded for one hour (the …

A Super Interesting Difference Between Men and Women

  A very interesting study looked at how our heart responds to mental stress. Turns out, there is a very key difference between the way a woman’s heart responds to stress and the way a man’s heart responds.   Mental stress is well known to trigger cardiac changes (as I go into more detail on below…) but so far, no study had looked out a difference between the sexes. Today’s study, published in Arteriosclerosis, Thrombosis and Vascular Biology on Dec. 21, 2017, showed definitively that there is an incredible difference between how a woman’s cardiovascular system responds to mental stress …
