Broken Heart Death : Dr. Nikki Stamp

Broken Heart Death : Dr. Nikki Stamp

Australian heart and lung surgeon Dr Nikki Stamp has shared the devastating effects heartbreak can have on the body.

It can be a soul-crushing experience for many people, but is it possible to die from it?

‘In short, yes you can. From the direct toxic effects of adrenaline in an acutely stressful situation, to the physical symptoms of having your heart broken, the mind and heart are truly connected,’ Dr Stamp wrote in her new book.

Women, may, repeat, may be “more likely” to suffer from a broken heart but the negative effects on men and women is a surety.

Dr. Stamp is correct: “It can be a soul crushing experience for many people…”

A man’s spirit sustains him in sickness, but a crushed spirit who can bear? (Proverbs 18:14)

Crush a man’s, or woman’s, (note man in woman), spirit and they will not be able to endure living. Indeed, the bones in the body begin to collapse and nothing can be supported or moved forward to exercise the functions of life.

A cheerful heart is good medicine, but a crushed spirit dries up the bones. (Proverbs 17:22)

Bonus Wisdom:

This is one reason God hates divorce with God speaking of guarding “your spirit.”

“I hate divorce,” says the Lord God of Israel, “and I hate a man’s covering himself with violence as well as with his garment,” says the Lord Almighty. So guard yourself in your spirit, and do not break faith. (Malachi 2:16) 

With governments abusing relationships, movies creating division in relationships and laws being lop-sided when it comes to crushing relationships it will take divine power from the Living God to guard one’s spirit.

Just thought I would point you in the right direction.

In her new book, heart surgeon Dr Nikki Stamp explores how modern medicine is only beginning to understand the connection between body and emotion

Takotsubo cardiomyopathy – commonly known as broken heart syndrome – is rare but real. As a heart and lung surgeon, Dr Nikki Stamp has seen a few cases herself, and the phenomenon provides a compelling opening chapter to her first book, Can You Die of a Broken Heart? The title reminds us of when but this book rises far above the online pseudoscience accompanying those reports. It is possible to be so affected by grief or shock that a predisposed heart simply cannot cope, and Stamp uses this as an opener to explore the myriad ways modern medicine is only recently understanding (and admitting) to the connection between body and emotion.

“We’ve sort of come full circle in terms of emotion and health,” Stamp says. “When early physicians were discovering organs and the body, they actually thought the heart was the centre of emotion, because it was warm and hot and that’s where the idea of being ‘hot-blooded’ came from. And then we got kind of cold and clinical; that your emotions come from the brain, that your emotional state has nothing to do with your physical state, and now we’ve come full circle and we’re starting to encompass a more holistic view of health.”
