Everyone knows that the heart is a vital organ. We cannot live without our heart. The primary function of the heart is to serve as a muscular pump propelling blood through blood vessels to and from all parts of the body.
Did you know:
- The heart is one of the most important organs in the human body, continuously pumping blood around our body through blood vessels. Your heart beats around 100,000 times a day, 36,500,000 times a year.
- The heart is made up of four chambers, the left atrium, right atrium, left ventricle and right ventricle. There are four valves in the human heart. They ensure that blood only goes one way, either in or out. Blood that leaves the heart is carried through arteries. The main artery leaving the left ventricle is the aorta while the main artery leaving the right ventricle is the pulmonary artery.
- Blood going towards the heart is carried through veins. Blood coming from the lungs to the left atrium is carried through the pulmonary veins while blood coming from the body to the right atrium is carried through the superior vena cava and inferior vena cava.
- Heart attacks cause scar tissue to form amongst the normal heart tissue. This can lead to further heart problems or even heart failure.
A lifestyle consisting of an over consumption of trans fatty acids and refined carbohydrates, combined with inadequate exercise plus protein and micro nutrients, sets the stage for cellular inflammation which in turn creates a predisposition for hypertension, diabetes and heart disease.
Though Lymphatic Enhancement Therapy does not directly work with the heart, it is working with the lymphatic system and elimination processes of the body (bowel/kidney etc) and therefore assists the body in its removal of waste products. The build-up of these wastes is part of the predisposition to heart complaints.
Lymphatic Enhancement Therapy assists you by improving the function of your lymphatic system, bowel and kidney by encouraging the removal of toxicity. Along with the therapy the Lymphatic Enhancement practitioner will educate you in dietary advice and self-care.
