The Healing Project: Transmuting Grief and Loss

Updated: May 30, 2020

Grief and loss comes in many forms (e.g. death, fractured relationships, amputations, etc.). It is very important to transmute the pain in order to enjoy a peaceful life condition.




Broken heart syndrome, also called stress-induced cardiomyopathy, is a real condition with real consequences.


According to the American Heart Association, "Broken heart syndrome may be misdiagnosed as a heart attack because the symptoms and test results are similar. In fact, tests show dramatic changes in rhythm and blood substances that are typical of a heart attack. But unlike a heart attack, there’s no evidence of blocked heart arteries in broken heart syndrome.


In broken heart syndrome, a part of your heart temporarily enlarges and doesn’t pump well, while the rest of your heart functions normally or with even more forceful contractions."



The relief of stress during those difficult times is a priority. Herbals teas and tinctures are most helpful; and, the healing begins the moment you invest in the treatment. It continues through the preparation, and delivers upon ingestion.


Some popular, gentle favorites for treating insomnia and healing the nervous system are: lavender, passionflower, chamomile, ashwaganda, and mugwort.


The flower essences created by Dr. Edward Bach are also very effective in addressing singular emotional afflictions and can be safely ingested as part of a self-care regimen.

Therapeutic baths also offer relief for burdensome tension. The addition of magnesium flakes or mustard seeds (steep into a tea) will nourish the body and get rid of immune-weakening toxins.
