A Healthy Heart is a Choice

The mystery of the heart is deep, her courage undeniable, and her strength astonishing. This month is Heart Health Month and to better understand what a healthy heart is, we spoke to four experts from a range of fields including cardiology, fitness, acupuncture, and psychotherapy.
The questions to our experts—Jennifer Haythe, M.D., Craig Rigsby, L.Ac., Helya Glen, and Mary Kemp—naturally differed somewhat as the answers guided the direction of the interviews. And yet, when asked if a healthy heart is a choice, all of them easily answered “yes." At the same time, all were very clear that it’s not easy.
Everyone agreed that the heart can be hurt, she has amazing protection mechanisms, and most importantly, she can be mended.
The end of the official month for Heart Health is the beginning of your renewed attention on this precious and powerful organ and soul center.
Here are our interviews:
A big thank you to our friends who participated. We learned so much from their generosity, kindness, and willingness to speak from the heart.
