Your emotional health affects your heart health
Healing the heart requires a holistic plan that looks not only at diet and exercise, but also at the mind and emotions.
A holistic approach to healing can reverse heart disease! Dr. Carrie explains the dynamics of heart disease and describes research done over the past 2 ½ decades showing that exercise, a healthy diet, and relief from stress, depression, and loneliness are key elements in reversing heart disease.
Why is heart disease so prevalent? Because, as a society, we are disconnected from our hearts, live in our heads, and suffer from depression and loneliness. Ayurveda and yoga see our hearts, minds, and emotions as being inextricably intertwined and prescribe taking quiet time to rest in and connect with our hearts.
A combination of yoga, meditation, and a diet rich in good fats and antioxidants can help prevent it.
