I’m a clairvoyant and emotional healer. I have developed a condition called Atrial Fibrillation, to do with the electrics in my heart. I have had to give up coffee, tea and go easy on all stimulants like sugar, as this seems to set it off. I love my work and find immense joy and satisfaction with my abilities as a healer.
My Naturopath prescribed the ‘Broken Heart Tea, as its very grounding and calming with my condition and I can take it with medications. I found the energetics gave me a really peaceful feeling and I am sleeping all night, every night!!!!!. Its good to know the nutrients are strengthening for my heart and circulatory system, without causing any complications.
Thank you so much for your amazing heart tea.
