SHOCK AND CARDIOVASCULAR DISEASES

by

There exists a powerful connection between our emotional wellbeing and our heart health. Shock – a highly stimulated state fueled by strong and sudden emotions such as fear, stress, or surprise – has long been associated with the development and exacerbation of cardiovascular diseases. Unlocking the intricate link between shock and heart health holds immense potential in providing care to individuals prone to such conditions. This article will explore the impact of shock on cardiovascular diseases and shed light on the critical importance of addressing emotional well-being for a healthy heart.

While we are well aware of physical factors that potentially endanger our heart’s health, such as smoking or lack of exercise, an often overlooked connection lies between our emotional wellbeing and heart health. Instances of trauma and emotional shock permeate our lives in various forms, negligent of background or social status. Let us delve into why these emotive experiences take a dreadful toll on our cardiovascular system, emphasizing the importance of nurturing emotional health alongside physical care. Trauma and emotional shock shake the very foundation of our being, momentarily destabilizing us. Amid such emotional disturbance, our physiological state is subject to drastic and abrupt transformations. These unprecedented disruptions eventually influence multiple bodily systems, including the intricate web of our cardiovascular health.

Many concealed triggers of trauma give rise to an innate response: activation of the sympathetic nervous system (SNS). Encoded within our genetic makeup, the SNS aims to prepare our body for the fight-or-flight responses elicited during perceived danger or stress. Although necessary for genuine threats, persistent activation of the SNS places elevated stress on the heart. Trauma powerfully reworks our perceptions of threat. Sadly, persisting emotional shock keeps encountering this forward-thinking figurative saboteur, interpreting almost anything triggering a painful reminder as imminent danger requiring heightened reaction. As a result, day-to-day activities raise levels of stress hormones, including cortisol and adrenaline, pushing our heart into an overworked and exhaustive state.

Heartache burdens the emotional chambers of our hearts, concomitantly occurring as the heart’s physical counterpart strains under the pressure. Studies confirm that suppression of emotions, guilt, grief, and chronic stress contribute to the wear and tear of one’s overall cardiovascular health. Beyond the emotional strain and unhealthy coping techniques that may follow traumatic events, the direct influence on our heart adds to the magnitude of the toll taken on our cardiovascular system. Conditions such as post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) often reveal concomitant increases in heart rate and blood pressure (to read more about homeopathy for high blood pressure click here), leading to a heightened risk of developing heart disease in the long run.

Trauma also disrupts critical aspects of self-care, such as sleep patterns, dietary habits, and exercise routines. The ensuing imbalance acts as an additional roadblock in maintaining the optimal functioning of our hearts. Lethargy, poor nutrition choices, and impaired sleep quality collectively manifest as risk factors for various cardiac problems. Recognizing trauma as a pressing importance helps ensure we implement proper healing and establish a safety net for our cardiological health as well.

Here are some remedies that can help to protect your heart and reduce the impact of shock on cardiovascular health. 

 

Arnica

 

Arnica SHOCK AND CARDIOVASCULAR DISEASES

Arnica is a homeopathic remedy that is highly effective in treating traumatic experiences, both physical and mental. It can address the immediate effects of trauma as well as the long-term effects that may linger. Traumatic events can leave a lasting impact on an individual’s mental and emotional well-being. Whether it is the pain of grief, the guilt of remorse, or the stress from sudden financial loss, Arnica can provide relief and aid in the healing process. Physical trauma, such as a blow to the liver, can also have detrimental effects on the body. In these cases, Arnica can help in restoring the body’s balance and supporting the recovery process.One common symptom of trauma is a strain on the heart. Arnica is particularly effective in addressing this issue, especially when the heart muscles have become weakened. It can alleviate ailments such as palpitations after exertion, angina pectoris, severe pain in the left arm’s elbow, and stitches in the heart. Additionally, Arnica can help with heart pains that radiate from the left side to the right side.

For individuals facing constant thoughts of death accompanied by cardiac distress at night, Arnica can provide respite from this psychological burden. It can also be helpful in addressing cardiac dropsy (fluid retention in the heart) and the accompanying distressing shortness of breath. Arnica not only targets the heart but also the limbs. After experiencing trauma, individuals may feel as if their limbs are bruised and sore and may even become distended. Arnica can help alleviate these symptoms and promote healing. In cases of fatty heart and hypertrophy, Arnica can be beneficial. These conditions involve the enlargement or thickening of the heart muscles, which can impair its normal functioning. Arnica can support the heart in regaining its strength and improving its overall health.

Finally, Arnica can address irregular and feeble pulses, which are common symptoms in individuals recovering from trauma. By promoting a more regular and stronger heartbeat, Arnica can contribute to the overall well-being of the cardiovascular system. In summary, Arnica is a powerful homeopathic remedy that can address the physical and emotional effects of trauma. It can provide relief for the heart, limbs, and overall cardiovascular system, promoting healing and restoring balance.
