Meditation for Heart Health & Cardiac Fitness
Thanks to some good public health efforts based on cardiology research, most of us are now aware that there is a great deal we can do to improve heart health and reverse coronary artery disease.
Along with behavioral changes in nutrition and exercise, there is now a wealth of data showing the importance of managing stress for heart health and cardiac strength.
The last thirty years of mind-body cardiac research shows that guided meditation and guided imagery for heart health improve heart rate, blood pressure, cholesterol, heart rate variability, and are associated with reducing arterial plaque. We even have outcomes showing that meditation for cardiac fitness will improve blood glucose and Hemoglobin A1c in people with diabetes.
We’re proud of the programs of guided meditation for heart health that we’ve assembled – a collection of clinically sound, impeccably produced relaxation, hypnosis and guided imagery for heart health that covers all the bases in the most elegant, sophisticated and evidence-based ways.
Belleruth’s Meditation to Promote a Healthy Heart uses guided imagery and affirmations to maintain or improve heart health and reverse coronary artery disease. Her guided meditations for Cardiac ICU & Rehab were made at the request of Columbia Presbyterian Hospital, where her Successful Surgery imagery is regularly used in the O.R, and her Relaxed & Awake guided imagery calms patients in the cardiac cath lab and during other uncomfortable procedures.
Carol Ginandes’ Perfect Pressure, Healthy Heart and Emmett Miller’s Down with High Blood Pressure are gold standards in the field, designed to effectively remediate hypertension and lower blood pressure.
For a comprehensive program to maintain heart health and reverse coronary artery disease, there is no wiser, sounder or more balanced guide than Andrew Weil, whose Healthy Heart Kit is about as good as it gets.
We also recommend supplementing these superlative meditations for heart health with our collection of guided imagery for stress and with the soothing music of Steven Mark Kohn.
We invite you to browse, listen to samples and find the voice and style that suit you. Welcome to the fun of discovering guided imagery and meditation, and a new chapter of cardiac strength and health!
