A'chem... KHEM. The land of black soil. Just like good old IOWA.
Was inspired by our murky Mercator map as well. Heart in the center? Other landmasses representing other organs?...

Like rhythmic or yogic breathing as well. Or cats purring.
From The Opening of the Way by Isha Schwaller de Lubicz.
"The Heart
The nature and function of the heart cannot be understood apart from the cardiac region which provides its driving force. The sun that vitalizes the physical heart is the spiritual heart, which is the center of spiritual fire which can be stirred up and strengthened by close attention and meditation.
The spiritual heart is the seat of the Presence, the magnet of our divine Ka, and its expression is that impersonal love which alone can prevail against all the fires of passion. It forms, together with the spleen, the area which reacts to the Spiritual Consciousness. By loving concentration it can become a radiant center of indestructible life.
The physical heart is its servant, the "minister of the lord and master," as the Chinese sages call it. Its activator is "the master of the heart." This is a functional command post, and it has its meridian of energy and discoverable sensitive points just as if it were an organ.
The "master of the heart" is the agent for transmitting energy between the spiritual heart and the physical heart, and as such it is in relation both with the conscious mind and with the Automaton. It rules the heartbeat and the energy of the whole sexual region, which includes not only the sexual glands and organs but also, in this context, the kidneys.
The Chinese likewise call it "the mother of the blood," because it regulates the flow of the blood, in conjunction with the small intestine, which refreshes and nourishes the blood with its chyle.
Thanks to this activator, the physical heart is the center and governor of the whole organism. For although the lungs are activated by the air and fire that they breathe in, the heart is the center and motor of the circuit which regenerates the blood in them.
Together with its region (the stomach, spleen, and pancreas) the heart is the agent of combustion of the terrestrial food which is to become assimilable nourishment. It collects the blood, which carries the liquids provided by the kidneys and liver, and also the nourishing chyle distilled in the small intestine. But both the small intestine and the kidneys are regulated in their energic aspect by the "master of the heart."
This mutual dependence makes it understandable that the functioning of the organs can be improved through the intermediary of the heart; and conversely, the state of the heart depends on the balance of the organs serving it."
Ah, the PASSIONS.
In the above mentioned work, she quotes
"An experienced cardiologist writes:
'The kingdom of the heart, including its channels of distribution in the blood vessels, covers the full extent of any living being both in time and space. The heart is engaged in the mysterious work of holding the whole organism in balance, which is more than a matter of blood vessels and changing pressures. To correct the effects of injury or disequilibrium it has remarkable methods of compensation justified by thousands of years of experience. This Wisdom of the Heart has come to us by heredity, as a quality of our species. The heart possesses an ability to repair damage affecting itself without for one moment interrupting the flow of energy it provides. Thus it is rightly a symbol of unfailing generosity. In the practice of cardiology we have had to recognize that the heart's power to maintain life is almost unlimited, so long as it is allowed to use its own methods and has unrestricted access to its natural resources. [Here the author makes a reservation regarding "situations which are beyond medical control, such as a massive embolism of the pulmonary artery, when the heart fails because the task is practically impossible.] Only too frequently, however, the unfortunate interventions of the psyche, especially in the form of anxiety, turn the course of events into catastrophe. A strong heart, very little damaged, has often been known to fail in a few hours under the influence of acute anxiety. One emotional storm can demolish completely the marvelous structure of homeostatic defenses which, with the Wisdom of the Heart, has come down to us from the depths of time.'
Dr. Godel, L'Experience liberatrice"

Agreed! My (finally) saline blood rises at anything suggesting someone might misconstrue this salt comment. Mineral, esp. iodine rich unprocessed, hand-harvested sea salt, or from local inland lakes is the ticket.

This made me think of.......

Nascent is inferior to Lugol's which has iodine and iodide. From memory nascent is just iodine.
Iodide is picked up by receptors that don't pick up iodine- different needs for different places in the body. But frankly, at this point, a drop of nascent is better than none at all- just remember to always salt load afterwards and chase it with clean non-fluoridated water to flush out the junk it collects.
(See the 2007 Iodine protocol or better yet read Lynne Farrow's book on it.)

Hey like the yin-yang symbol.

I went through one or two of these episodes in what feels like a past life now, in my early twenties. It felt that, in order to continue with life, my heart had to be 'put on ice' until some time had accrued which would enable a perspective on what happened and why.
Well, it certainly has (been healed with time), but in my travels I came across a really interesting scan experiment, where the people involved had recently undergone a trauma or grievous loss, and were scanned alongside patients with strong healthy hearts. Lo and behold- the healthy heart scans were red, the sad scans showed literally blue.
It turns out the stress hormone adrenaline turns the blood 'sticky' and it flows more slowly through the 'broken' heart.
I tried to find the original thermal imaging scans but only found these. Close enough;
