Emotions affect the HEART

*information obtained from Eight Weeks To Optimum Health by Andrew Weil, M.D

The sympathetic (arousing) branch of the involuntary nervous system dominates at the time of heart attacks; during that time the heart muscle might be predisposed (inclined) to go into ventricular fibrillation, which is when the heart muscle goes into a chaotic useless movement that leads to death within minutes.

On the other hand, if the parasympathetic (relaxing) nerves are dominant during a heart attack, then the heart muscle may be protected from this catastrophe (disaster) even through the area of injury is extensive.


The sympathetic dominance correlates with chronic anxiety, stress and a tendency to rage when frustrated.

The Parasympathetic dominance correlates with openness, calm, and acceptance.

Emotions are usually associated with the heart and sometimes people even experience emotional disruptions as pain or discomfort in the chest.

Our feeling interact with our hearts through complex nervous and hormonal systems of communication, which can also affect the condition of our coronary arteries.

For example, a coronary event that can precipitate (cause to happen suddenly; unexpectedly) a heart attack is a spasms of those vessels in response to an emotional upheaval.
