HeartMath® is a program designed to teach individuals how to handle stress by managing their reactions to stressful situations, in turn allowing them to lead healthier and more productive lifestyles at home and at work.
The basis of HeartMath® is heart rate variability. Increased heart rate variability is a result of stress, or occurs in response to stressful situations. The greater the variability of your heart rate, the more disordered the message is that is sent to your brain, and the more unclear your thoughts are.
When stress is constant, your body is constantly producing cortisol and other stress hormones. This disrupts the body’s processes, putting you at higher risk of developing heart disease, obesity, diabetes, cancer, hypertension, memory problems, depression and sleep problems. According to the American Institute of Stress, 90 percent of all illnesses are stress-related.
HeartMath® provides the tools necessary to eliminate stress so that people can operate more efficiently in their lives, both at home and in the workplace. People can’t control every situation, but they can control how they react to them.

Even though the heart and the lungs help the body in different ways, they are also linked together in many unique ways. When the lungs develop a rise in blood pressure, known as pulmonary hypertension (PH), it can affect the heart as well.
