Introduction

Let's face it, heart health today isn't anything like it was years ago. With each generation it seems that our hearts are getting worse. Heart disease is starting in at younger ages along with strokes and heart attacks. Heart health in general has gotten much worse. There are many different things we can do about this. Our doctors place us on medication which is a step. Medications like Cholesterol pills for example. This is one great step. Things that will help lower our blood pressure. But then sometimes these things just don't help.

I've got news. There are actually several different alternative things that are great for our heart. You may be interested in herbs or even crystal healing. In this hub I will share with you a few herbs that are said to be great for our heart and circulatory system along with crystals that can be used in crystal healing to help our hearts out.

Herbs

There are a few different ways to use herbs. Some people do not believe in spells but if you are you can include these herbs in spells to help enhance them for your health. You can also include them in pouches to carry on you that may also help. However if you do not believe in either of these methods you can also ingest these herbs. When it comes to ingestion you must be careful. Herbs may be natural however our bodies may still react to them, especially if you are on other medications. So it is important to discuss using herbs with your doctor.

There is a mushroom called Agaricus Blazei Mushroom. This mushroom has been used in both Japanese cultures and in Brazil to treat heart disease.

A herb known as Alfalfa can help lower cholesterol which can help our heart health all around, help preventing stroke, high blood pressure and heart attacks.

Angelica Root, which is a well known herb, well at least for those who are into herbs. This herb can help aid with high blood pressure, to lower it down to a healthier level.

Apples, a great and tasty fruit is actually a fruit that is known to lower cholesterol.

Arjuna is a herb that is altogether a useful herb for cardiovascular health. It's well known to help with your heart. Whether it be cholesterol, high blood pressure or anything.

Artichoke is a well known one that is healthy for your heart. This you can find in your local grocery store.

Bugleweed is a herb that has been known to be very useful with heart and vascular disorders.

Garlic is also a well known herb, one you can find in your grocery store and is also great for your heart.

Now there are so many more herbs that can be useful for your heart. These are but a few out of a whole bundle of them that can help you. Be sure to keep in mind that a few of these may have affects on your body and to discuss using herbs with your doctor first. Especially if you are taking medications right now.

Crystals

Using crystals for healing is yet another alternative method to healing. It's actually my preferred method. When using crystals there are few important things to remember. You should always keep your crystals and gemstones cleansed and charged. There are few different ways to cleansing your stones. Keep in mind that a few stones cannot be exposed to water. Be sure to know your stones before using salt water or water to cleanse.

Now, let me share with you the several different stones that can help with heart health. The first stone I always like to mention is clear quartz crystal. When all else comes to fail this crystal is the one you can use because this stone can be used for anything and everything.

Rose quartz has always been associated with the heart. This crystal can be used to aid with heart health as well.

Kunzite can promote healthier circulation of our blood, in turn our heart can take it easy.

Iolite is a stone that is basically an altogether useful healing stone. It can be used in healing anything and everything, including your heart. It may be used to strengthen it.

Rubies have been used to improve circulation as well as cleansing our blood. In turn our heart will be taking it easy and our blood will also be healthier.

Ruby Zoisite is a stone that has been said to be able to slow down a racing heart. This is rather important. One that I'm sure a few of you could use from time to time.

While I'm sure there are plenty more stones that can be applied to heart health right now these are the only ones I can think of. When using crystals you can either carry them on you, use them in spells or last but not least rub the crystal around the area that is ailing you. So with your heart you'd want to rub the crystal around your heart. You'd want to visualize the pain, or whatever ailment it is leaving your body and being taken into the crystal.

Conclusion

I love natural healing, crystal healing especially. I am always amazed by what I can learn. II'll admit that at one point I did not believe in such things however I have a personal reason to believe in it now. It works for me and hopefully if you end up needing it it'll help you out as well. And even if you do not need the uses of herbs and crystals I still hope that this information at least was interesting to you.

Kitty, exercise is great for the heart. I do that as well of coarse. Writer 20, I do not have palpitations of the heart but I know what you are speaking of and I know that some of these crystals have helped some people with palpitations. I have been have been having heart arethmia do to low potassium which we are trying everything to do to increase. I'm taking the pills and even increasing foods that have it in them still no such luck.

Cresentmoon, you might try switching to light salt. Instead of making it from sodium, they make it from potassium (commonly). So switching it out may help with your potassium intake. You might want to make sure it says something akin to Potassium Chloride on the package, just in case, but there should be much trouble finding it. I hope this helps :)

Azaurmyth they have me on a prescription of potassium chloride and that's what I am taking. My doctor also has me eating more foods such as bananas, greens and potatoes that has potassium in them to help and still my potassium is low. They have me taking quite a bit of the potassium pills right now. Thanks for your advise though.
