Heart disease is the number one cause of death in the western world. When you understand what causes heart disease, you can take avoiding action. Knowledge is power!
Medicine likes to label all the different types of heart disease, but to a homeopath, this has little relevance. That may sound strange to those new to the idea of homeopathy, but when you look at life in an energetic way, it can all make so much sense.
We live in a three dimensional world so tend to think this is all there is. But thoughts, ideas, emotions, love and dreams cannot be explained by a three dimensional model. These are all more easily explained in terms of energy. They are metaphysical. They transcend the physical.
And every creation starts as a thought. When someone wants to build a bridge or an electronic gadget, it starts out as an idea or a thought. So the metaphysical always precedes the physical.
This is true in everything, your health included. So let’s explore this idea.
Your body is already perfect. It has the potential to live well beyond a century, in a very healthy way. Undisturbed traditional people do this regularly. So what has gone wrong with people today?
I believe there are multiple factors that create disease, that lead to the common causes of heart disease.
The obvious ones, that most people know about are diet, obesity and exercise, so I don’t really need to go there except to say these are REALLY important areas. The wrong diet, so common today, makes your body work so much harder to stay vaguely healthy. They are deficient in the vital nutrients for survival and many are toxic.
Deficiency and toxicity are two of the most common causes of health problems on the physical side. And you can clearly see that the lack of nutrition or the intake of toxins precedes any health issues.
The less obvious heart disease causes are metaphysical. Few people, including your doctor, know anything about this vital area.
When I talk about Love, I don’t mean the love you feel for a partner or other loved member of the family. I mean the Love that in unconditional. The Love that doesn’t need anything in return. This sort of Love can only come about if you feel it for yourself first.
Most of us are brought up to be self critical. That’s OK as long as you criticise your actions, rather than your being. You are already perfect. But your actions may not be. You may act in a way that is so distant from your heart, your true self, that you attack yourself. Guess what, you then suffer a heart attack!
When you connect with your true, authentic self, you act out of compassion and Love for yourself and for those around you. Do you see much of that in our present, highly stressed world? Could that be why we so easily succumb to heart disease?
Undisturbed traditional people live more authentically, in touch with their inner self, with Nature, with compassion for those around them. No wonder they don’t suffer from the cause of heart disease and so live longer and healthier lives.
Our self judgement is expressed as judgement of others. It’s so much easier to judge and blame others than to look within to find our own problems and sort them out.
Another way of looking at what causes heart disease, which comes to the same thing, is to see which side of the brain we use most. The western world is dominated by the left brain. This is all about ego, profit, greed, trying to understand everything, knowledge (usually yesterday’s and someone else’s) and intellect (which can be rigid).
Some of these aspects are necessary, but not to the exclusion of the right brain, which is all about going with the flow, knowing (which happens now and is your own), feeling, intelligence (which is flexible and open to the change of what is), connecting with your heart, compassion.
You need to use your whole brain for a healthy body.
This is why meditation is so important. Or yoga or any of the other eastern forms of exercise. Or homeopathy. All help you connect with your authentic self, your heart.
Homeopathy is wonderful at bringing you back to your heart centred being, to unravel past hurts, to de-tox your body, so you can live the life you chose when you came into the world.
Look beyond the physical side of what causes heart disease and see the metaphysical. Living a life detached from your heart may be common, but you don’t have to buy into it. Homeopathy can help you rediscover the connection.
