In Proverbs 23:7 we read:
"For as a man thinketh in his heart so is he."
I don't know about you, but I find this interesting.
One would imagine, we think with the brain.
Yet Gods Word clearly tells us here, "as a man thinketh, IN HIS HEART!"
I'll just remind you a little about the heart.
It is approximately the size of your fist.
It pumps 5 litres (almost 8 pints) of blood around your body in one minute.
It has an electrical system that charges and fires to keep it in sinus rhythm (beating smoothly).
Stress fear and LOVE have an effect on the heart.
What you eat, if you exercise, smoke or whether you breath properly all effect the heart.
I have written about some of this in previous postings.
This time I want to enlighten, in simple terms, on the value of magnesium.
I first recognised this myself when suffering from restless leg syndrome.
There is nothing worse than trying to sleep and your legs won't stop twitching.
One of my doctor colleagues who also believes in natural therapies explained magnesium depletion. Apparently my leg movements were one of the symptoms.
Further research revealed other benefits from taking this Wonder Mineral.
Actually, many will be familiar with its more common name of, Epsom Salts.
It assists in healthy heart rhythm, promotes normal muscle and nerve function (also within the heart), resulting in restful sleep and calmed leg muscles.
So with better circulation there is less stress on the heart.
I hope this helps.....
(And hey, it also assists with constipation.)
MAGNESIUM IS BROUGHT IN TABLET FORM
FROM PHARMACIES AND WAL-MART.

Your Heart, Your Soul
An Author since 2012 and retired Specialist Registered Nurse. I reside in sub-tropical Queensland, Australia, with my American husband Raymond and our two little dogs. Mille` (Toy Foxy), and Marley (Toy Poodle). Late in 2008 I began to explore and enjoy the realm of creative writing. This is something which has always been an interest yet until now,I haven't found time to indulge. God is the cornerstone of my home and heart. He is my life and my breath, for without Him I am nothing. My desire is to edify His existance in my daily walk through life. To inspire and encourage the broken hearted. And to assist in the knowledge that EVERYTHING has a reason and a purpose under the Heavens. We are reminded through our faith in Jesus that He will, "Turn our Mourning into Dancing and our Sorrow into Joy." Psalms 30:11. Having personally experienced tough times I know, there is truely no gain without pain. B.N (Aus) B.S.N (U.S.A) M.H.N, ProfC, Bible College Graduate. 1. South Western Sydney Area Health, 2.
