Connective Tissue - Information Super Highway

The millions if not trillions of cells within the body are instantly and intrinsically linked at all times.

A free exchange of information and energy takes place between the cells at all times.

The function of each cell is informed by the function of the cells around it. Being open to input outside of itself allows the cell to be resilient and open to change. It gives the cell an intelligence beyond itself – an integrated intelligence where its function is connected to functions outside of itself.

Because of this, our health can be understood as the sum of many dynamic relationships that give way to wholeness.

However the heart also possesses intelligence that is consciousness. It plays a significant role in our mental, emotional and physical processes – thus having a direct effect on our health and our lives.
