This challenging time of his life had turned his emotions upside down preventing him from managing stress effectively. He needed help managing stress to reduce heart disease.

Prior those events, he was not at-risk for heart disease and he was in great physical shape. The stress generated by these emotional experiences had been enough strong to cause a stroke and a heart attack.

A recent article describing the link between brain activity and heart disease helps to understand Mike’s medical issue better. A scientific study showed that hyperactivity of the amygdalae, located in the reptilian brain, impacts the bone marrow which in turn affects the arteries causing inflammation. Arterial inflammation is responsible for strokes and heart attacks. The research proves that managing stress to reduce heart disease can be effective.

The reptilian brain is known to be part of the primitive brain and controls the response to fear and anger. The reptilian brain manages the fight or flight response.
