by Dr. Thomas Cowan, Human Heart, Cosmic Heart
Thomas Cowan, M.D., has studied and written about many subjects in medicine including nutrition, anthroposophical medicine and herbal medicine. He is the principal author of The Fourfold Path to Healing and co-author (with Sally Fallon) of The Nourishing Traditions Book of Baby and Child Care.
Dr. Cowan has served as vice president of the Physicians Association for Anthroposophic Medicine and is a founding board member of the Weston A. Price Foundation®. He also writes the “Ask the Doctor” column in Wise Traditions in Food, Farming, and the Healing Arts (the Weston A. Price Foundation’s quarterly magazine) and has lectured throughout the United States and Canada. He has three grown children and practices medicine in San Francisco where he resides with his wife, Lynda Smith.
Building off the ideas of Rudolph Steiner, Dr. Thomas Cowan in his book Human Heart, Cosmic Heart, further delves into a beautiful explanation of how our circulation actually works reinforcing what we now know to be true of Steiner’s assertion that the heart indeed is not a pump.
The discovery of a fourth phase of water called “structured water” explains the mechanism of how this works in our circulation and in the forces of nature under certain conditions. This process is one of effortless balance in which Cowan calls “levity.”
Cowan further examines what we believe to be the basis of heart disease, shifting this instead to the imbalance of the parasympathetic and sympathetic nervous system. This underscores our need to regain equilibrium within ourselves and to our world in which we live.
Intertwining personal stories and other tangential topics Cowan elegantly asserts that “Life is, always, more than the sum of its parts.” This also hold true of this book as it is one in which the reader will reflect upon often, and will change the paradigm of not only what we know, but moreover, what we know with our hearts.
This remarkable book outlines with warmth, clarity and rigorous thinking:
- A new understanding of the role of the heart in the human body
- The connection between the heart and gold
- The connection between the heart and love
- The true cause of heart disease and how to prevent and treat it
