A healthy body depends upon all its systems being in balance; interrupt any one of them and eventually there will be widespread disruption. The brain and heart are arguably two of the most important systems as they are at the center of many vital body functions. The heart acts as your body’s lifeline, sending oxygen and nutrients to every cell. Your brain acts much like a computer, processing information, controlling thoughts and feelings, as well as coordinating actions and reactions. With control over so many important functions, a glitch in either system can quickly lead to disruptions in overall body function.
