The Heart of the Matter

February 13, 2012

Yes, it’s Valentines Day tomorrow and everyone will be celebrating with enough sugar to choke a horse. But beware of diabetic centers that advise you to limit your sugar but often substitute synthetic sweeteners that may be even worse.

I have a couple of safe and sweet recipes for you in my Healthy Desserts Blog.

The real way to win a person’s heart, and keep it healthy for a long time, is with magnesium! Magnesium is THE most important mineral for the heart. So, instead of chocolates give your partner the gift of Natural Calm, or Epsom salts. Go to my Resources page for the list of my magnesium recommendations.

Exercise is important in heart health; both aerobic and resistance training are important. My favorite is T-Tapp developed by my dear friend, Teresa Tapp. It’s the ultimate multi-tasking exercise. Teresa is the model of fitness and sweetness as she coaches you through a 15-Minute Workout. Teresa has longer programs but promises that you can lose weight and inches and drop your glucose, blood pressure and cholesterol with only 15 minutes a day. You can even Try Before You Buy to check out if it’s something you can feel good about doing.

We can’t forget the Issues of the heart. In Proverbs 4:23 Solomon said that issues of the heart are the source of all issues in life. The best resources for healing heart issues are in a book and healing program called The Healing Codes. This work is co-authored by a friend of mine, Dr. Ben Johnson and it allows you to resolve all the stresses in your life that can account for 90% of illness.

In an era when standard medicine treats stress with mind-numbing medications and ineffective or harmful psychiatric intervention, The Healing Codes address the real cause of sickness and disease at the cellular level…where disease, illness, and sickness actually start. Under stress your cells don’t take in the proper amounts of oxygen, water, or nutrients. They don’t release wastes and toxins. So, healing the issues of the heart keeps even your cells happy.
