Recipes for a Happy Heart

The heart is the emperor of the internal organs. The heart governs the mind, and is the resting place of the spirit. It is responsible for governing the blood and controlling the blood vessels. The heart's element is fire. Its season is summer, its color is red, and its flavor is bitter. The sense organ associated with the heart is the tongue. Imbalances of the heart may lead to symptoms such as insomnia, anxiety, excessive sadness or crying, mania, chest pain, muscle aches and pains, headache, burning/painful urination, chest pain, abnormal sweating and dull eyes.
