Why do we have so many terms and phrases in our language that relate to the heart? Why is the heart considered by many to be the most important organ of the body? Is the heart nothing more than just a muscular pump or does it have neurological and energetic significance as well? The answers to these and many other questions are beginning to be understood as research conducted by the Institute of HeartMath in Boulder Creek, California continues to be performed and published.
In earlyJune, 1998 I attended the ICAK-USA conference in San Diego where there was a presentation by Jerry Kaiser, the director of the Health Services Division of the Institute of HeartMath. The HeartMath research team, many of whom are M.D.s and Ph.D.s, have researched the math of the heart, or more particularly, the math of the electrocardiograph: (EKG). The results of their research have been recendy published in cardiology and stress medicine journals.
Their findings show that the shifting feelings or emotions to the heart can have profound effects on the heart. But in addition to the heart, the entire autonomic nervous system.is affected.
