Let's play a game. I'll give you a few hints of what I do, and you try to guess what part of the body I am.
-I am the largest generator of electromagnetic energy in your body. I am so sensitive that I contract when an electromagnet is placed near me.
- I am always communicating with every part of the body, and the energy I send out affects every cell in the body, and
-I am not the brain. Stumped you, didn't I?
-I manufacture so many hormones I've been re-classified as an endocrine gland, among other things.
-I manufacture chemicals to keep you happy, that affect all your organs. I am exquisitely sensitive to emotions and respond immediately to them, sometimes I work faster or slower depending on what is going on.
Who am I?
If you guessed the heart, you are correct!
The heart is amazing. So much has been discovered about its abilities. We already know a lot about how important this organ is for the rest of the body and our survival, so it is important to keep it healthy as well.
The heart needs a lot to keep it healthy, but that doesn't mean it has to be hard!
Research has repeatedly shown that those eating lots of saturated animal fats, (butter, eggs, coconut oils and fish) and avoiding margarine, corn oil, vegetable oils, trans-fats, hydrogenated fats (i.e. Crisco) and other heavily processed foods have healthier blood vessels and less inflammation and clogging. What does this mean for your health? When your blood is pumping proficiently, the rest of your body functions can work at their best.
This isn't as difficult as it seems. You just need to make sure that the food you are eating is the least processed version of what it should be. Craving chicken? Grill it yourself instead of stopping by the nearest fast food establishment and chowing down. Want chocolate? How about a nice piece of pure chocolate, instead of grocery store-bought cookies and sweets, most likely made with the above mentioned ingredients.
How to protect the brains of the heart (nervous system): Keep your spine healthy! A subluxation (dislocation) could block essential communications between your brain and body, potentially affecting organ function.
