Have you ever asked yourself why is the heart the symbol of love?

Medical professionals would question this fact knowing that the heart is not the center of emotions.
Instead, it is the brain, specifically the hypothalamus, that governs emotions. Results of experiments
conducted show that the hypothalamus responds in any form of emotional triggering.
But why would people always say, "I love you from the bottom of my heart" ? No one knows where
this idea originated but I have made some personal analogies about the heart in a question-
and-answer format.

Anatomically, the heart is placed at the center cavity of the chest, more inclined on the
left.
Q: Why is the heart positioned at the left?
A: For you to be reminded that the heart is not always RIGHT.
No wonder the Bible said, "the heart is deceitful above all."

There are two normal sounds of the heart: S1 and S2. We call these the lubb-dubb
sounds. For infants, S3 sound is awaited. It is expected that the two normal sounds
remain as a person grows. Hence, the presence of S3 and S4 becomes abnormal and in
fact, could implicate a dangerous heart condition.
Q: Are S3 and S4 dangerous to the heart?
A: Yes. Because the heart should only have two sounds. LOVE IS MEANT FOR TWO. A 3rd
and 4th party results in dangers in a relationship.

The heart is labeled as the primary compensatory organ. It adjusts in cases where the
other organs are failing or in trouble. From a minor problem to a major complication in
the body, the heart will respond but either increasing or reducing its pumping to correct
the problem.
Q: Why is the heart considered as the primary compensatory organ?
A: Because the heart understands the entire body. The heart is understanding, and so is
love. LOVE IS UNDERSTANDING.

Q: When will the heart stop beating permanently?


A: When you are dead. No wonder most wedding pledges end with these words, "Till
death do us part."
The brain, firing electrical impulses to make our muscles contract for movement,
controls most parts of the body. But wait, there is an exemption.
Q: What is the only muscle that is not controlled by the brain directly?
A: The heart. Because the heart has its own pacemaker (an area capable of producing
electrical impulses). Therefore, the heart can produce its own impluses that is why it
cannot be controlled by the brain. DI KAYANG TURUAN NG UTAK ANG PUSO. Don't
always follow your heart.

Q: What is the most common disorder affecting the heart?


A: Myocardial infarction. Its primary symptom is chest pain. Experts actually tell us that
it's one of the most excruciating experiences a person could ever have. Despite this
severe pain, the heart does not immediately cease in functioning. It is expected to
counterbalance to increase a person's survival. In other words, even if the heart is
having a hard time, it fights and compensates. KAHIT NASASAKTAN AND NAHIHIRAPAN
NA ANG PUSO, LUMALABAN SYA.

The next time you think about love, think about your heart.
