Unlike ischaemic heart disease, non-ischaemic heart disease actually affects the heart.
The clinical term is “cardiomyopathy,” literally, “illness of heart muscle.” However, non-ischaemic heart disease includes
- heart failure
- rheumatic fever
- valve problems
- pericarditis or pericardial effusion
(Note: although classed within cardiomyopathy, the pericardium isn’t part of the heart).
The health industry’s understanding cardiomyopathy comes from a false belief that the heart is a pump. According to this myth, the heart’s job is to push oxygenated blood around your body at a rate of about 5 litres per minute.
The “engine” of our mechanical body…only, instead of being built for 300,000 kilometres like a car engine, health professionals are taught the average heart is built for 2.7 billion beats.
To prevent cardiomyopathy, then, we just need to keep this pump-engine machine well-tuned. We do this by getting our heart rate up a few times a week with aerobic exercise. This will make the resting heart rate slower, which will spread those 2.7 billion beats over a longer period of time.
Unfortunately, budgetting your beats won’t help you if you’ve already got cardiomyopathy from rheumatic fever. Or if your heart is “damaged” from stimulants, severe anemia, or a built-in “defect.” Or if you have a bunch of stress in your life and your adrenaline keeps shooting up and making you waste heart beats (so-called “broken heart syndrome”).
Medications or pacemakers might help to control heart rhythm. Surgery might correct structural malformations. But, as with so many symptoms, the health industry cannot cure cardiomyopathy.
To be a pump, your heart would have to force your blood through 90,000 kilometres of blood vessels. Every minute. Now imagine trying to inflate one of those long, skinny balloons for making balloon animals. Multiply that by a hundred thousand. This much mechanical force needs a pump about the size of a house!
The Heart Is Not a Pump
Think of your heart as a grand central station for oxygenated blood flowing around your body and returning to be replenished with more oxygen. The central station of a railway is where train traffic is coordinated. It’s not where trains are pushed out to the countryside through 60 to 70 huge pulses per minute.
Neither is your blood pushed around your body. Like a train moves under its own internal combustion or steam or overhead electrical current, blood flows by fluid dynamics.
(Fluid dynamics also control cloud flow, river flow, glaciers, and the flow of the planets around the sun, spiralling through space)
The energy for propulsion of the blood is in the blood itself. We know this because pulsing and spiralling movement of the blood begins in embryos before there’s a heart.
So if the heart isn’t a pump, is heart disease caused by damage or defects in the pump?
Cardiomyopathy symptoms, just like other symptoms, originate because of specific types of traumatic stress experiences. These “biological conflicts” obey five biological laws of Nature discovered by Dr. Hamer. And knowing about this lets us heal our hearts …and get a lot more beats.
