The heart and adrenals control just about everything in the body. The heart is the major energy supplier to everything in and throughout the body. The adrenals affect the heart much in the same way that the accelerator affects the engine of a car.
Keeping the heart and adrenals functioning at or near one hundred percent delays aging and keeps the body looking younger than it would be otherwise.
The easiest way to assess the heart and adrenals (and everything else in the body) is to check their 'pulse' or electrical rhythm. The normal electrical rhythm of the heart is 12, and should remain 12 when checked three times in quick succession, while the electrical rhythm of the adrenals is 10, and should remain 10 when pulsed three time in quick soccession. the adrenals should be checked separately and collectively using limbic muscle testing (see separate article or my books), and they should communicate with each other (right with left and left with right) and with the heart (and the heart with the adrenals, individually and collectively).
When the heart is pulsing 12 (x3) no-one 'just drops dead.' When the heart and adrenals pulse normally conditions like anxiety, panic attacks, fibromyalgia, insomnia, depression, hypertension, incontinence, constipation, diabetes, numbness, weight gain, erectile dysfunction or inability to achieve orgasms are rare.
The adrenals are controlled by the hypothalamus which, in turn, depends on the energy produced by the heart. It is also affected by emotions such as 'being a failure,' 'I am unworthy,' 'I am useless' or 'I can't do anything right.' The adrenals are affected by stress and the heart is affected by unrequieted love and by being empathic.
Stress affect both parts of the adrenals. It causes the adrenal cortex to produce cortisol and the adrenal medulla to produce excessive amounts of adrenaline, which makes the heart beat faster (increased heart rate, not to be confused with the electrical rhythm of the heart) and over time wears it out. It contracts with less force and generates less energy, leading to fatigue and weakness. Cortisol inhibits the production of insulin, so sugar cannot be transported into the cells and remains in the blood (Hyperglycemia) and the person is always hungry. When the heart, which is a mass of smooth muscles weakens, it moves blood with less force, so organs and tissues receive less oxygen and nutrition and metabolic wastes accumulate in the tissues. The body becomes less efficient and symptoms begin to appear. The aging process is accelerated, and is compounded by the pharmaceutical drugs the person is prescribed to deal with these symptoms. Prolonged exposure to stress (and not enough sleep) weakens all the smooth muscles in the body and can lead to adrenal fatigue. Recovery from adrenal fatigue is very slow. Adrenal fatigue can be physically debilitating.
A drop in the energy that is generated by the heart also affects the aura, our invisible energy shield, which determines the strength of our immune system, not only in terms of avoiding or fighting infections, but also our ability to withstand psychic attacks.
