What if you could easily...

Make better decisions? Gain control of your emotions? Enhance creativity? Reduce high blood pressure? Increase personal productivity? Slow down aging?

You can, simply by understanding your heart's intelligence--which has more impact on our emotions, our mind, and our physical health than was ever thought possible. And what if you learned that there is something you can use--potent tools that can channel your heart's intelligence--to live a healthier life with greater potential than ever before?

Breakthrough scientific research proves that the heart is the control tower of the body's systems and overall health. Pioneers of this research--based at the prestigious Institute of HeartMath--have developed a program to harness the power of the heart with simple, proven techniques. These life-altering techniques will show you how to deepen the qualities long associated with the heart--wisdom, compassion, courage, love, strength, and joy.

Hailed by the medical community, the institute teaches its techniques to individuals and corporate clients all over the world, from Fortune 500 companies, such as Hewlett-Packard, Motorola, and Royal Dutch Shell to all four branches of the U.S. military. Here, for the first time, The HeartMath Solution presents a comprehensive view of their groundbreaking work including:

The research that is the foundation of their program--from the institute's team of cardiologists, physicists, psychiatrists, and other experts in the medical field; Their easy-to-learn, scientifically proven techniques, including FREEZE-FRAME, CUT-THRU, and HEART LOCK-IN; and The amazing results that balance our heart rhythms and hormone levels, increase DHEA, and boost our immune systems.

Publisher's Weekly Review

Is the heart the missing link in the mind-body connection? By combining age-old philosophy with modern science, Childre and MartinÄrespectively the founder and an executive consultant of the California nonprofit research organization, Institute of HeartMathÄmake a compelling case for the idea that good health is really a triumph of heart, not mind, over matter. Citing the Institute's research on the heart's role in human health, they demonstrate that the so-called metaphorical condition of the heartÄwhich has long been associated with love, wisdom, courage and happinessÄmay play as important a role in mental well-being as its physical function. The HeartMath solution lies in developing what Childre and Martin call the core heart feelings (such as love, forgiveness, appreciation and care), which trigger physiological responses resulting in less stress, better brain function and a stronger immune system. Although this book is about the heart, it's written with cool intelligence and intelligibility for the head. Despite slightly off-putting names (Freeze-Frame, Cut-Thru and Lock-In), the relaxation exercises, which are being taught at corporations and at schools, are simple to do, although perhaps already too familiar to anyone who has tried other kinds of meditative techniques. Nevertheless, in presenting a clear argument for following one's heart, this book certainly breaks new ground in the holistic approach to health. Author tour. (May) (c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC.
