I’m a veteran of heart problems having had cardiac insufficiency due to trauma since the age of 8 and actually had two cardiac arrests at the age of 19. I was told then that there was no chance of a normal life ahead for me. They said I’d live only with the help of drugs to keep my heart beating regularly enough, and things like having a baby would be at the risk of death, unlikely anyway as I wouldn’t be able to cope with the increased heart rate that’s part of sex.
My Great-Great Grandad John Waltham didn’t even hear me out when I started telling him all that. He put me on the path to healing my heart and in the process over the years I used what I’d learned to help others – people and animals.
I’ve learned that if someone has a problem with their emotions – whether their heart is broken by a tragedy or a loss, or whether they experience un-explainable sorrow, or whether they feel emotionless and blocked up – a common experience for those with depression, all these can be helped in big ways with herbs that have traditionally been used to support and heal the physical heart.
Of course, just as there’s no point filling up your car’s tank with fuel if you don’t actually turn it on and go somewhere, so there’s no point taking herbs for healing, if you don’t use that support to find out what’s troubling you emotionally and face it. I wish they’d taught us that skill in school or at home growing up – it would’ve saved so many such pain.
But coming back to the herbs. The following are some of my most favorite herbs that not only heal the heart, but help the nervous system frequency get back to normal and help the person emotionally.
