(NaturalNews) A person's handwriting may be able to aid in the early diagnosis of heart disease, according to a handwriting expert from Wiltshire, England.

"I managed to find a statistically significant difference in the writing of patients with cardiac disease and my control group," said Christina Strang, who has been a graphologist for 12 years. "I've found one particular movement in the writing, although I actually believe there's far more than just the one link, and my research is going to be continuing, looking to see if I can find those other links as well."

Strang asked 61 heart patients from Pool Hospital in Swindon to provide handwriting samples for her, then compared these to samples provided by people without any cardiovascular disease.

"I ask the person to write down 100 words about a holiday or something, but I only analyze the last 30 words because this is when they are relaxed and write naturally," she said.

Strang discovered that handwriting samples from heart patients contained twice as many "resting dots," produced when the pen pauses on a piece of paper for mere milliseconds, as the samples from healthy people.

"These resting dots can be because the heart misses a beat or a sudden pain," Strang hypothesized.

"In the group I used, some had been diagnosed and some hadn't, so I'm hoping to do a completely new group of people who have not been diagnosed with heart disease and the idea is to see if I can pick out the ones that will ultimately be diagnosed."

Strang also hopes to see whether the same signs can also be used to detect the early stages of other chronic conditions, such as diabetes and arthritis.

"There could also be many other signs within patients' handwriting," she said, "but I haven't been able to identify these yet."
