Hereditary Arrhythmia

Posted by Jessica (Nyc) on 08/23/2013

Great site, thank you all for sharing this information, your stories, interesting POVs and advice. I'm wondering how many people on here suffer from hereditary arrythmia? Several people in my family have had it and I'm wondering if any of these arrythmia remedies would be beneficial for someone like myself who has it "in the genes". I suppose being prone to certain deficiencies might also be hereditary. But I'm wondering in my case what to start with, as there are so many options and suggestions. I've noticed my arrhythmia since I was 18 and its gotten worse over the years. Now I'm 37 and its still going strong and getting worse. I've had all the tests and Drs say "it's not the bad kind" of arrhythmia that might cause a stroke but it keeps me awake every night and has forced me to confront it. Best in health to you all.

Jessica, my husband has a terrible family heart history and also has arrythmia. If he stays off caffeine, it rarely flares up. A tablespoon of Blackstrap Molasses daily is highly nutritious and helpful to many. It is good for muscles and the heart is a muscle. Also, cayenne pepper. You can get capsules with ginger in them, which is also good for the heart and makes it easier on the stomach. Mrs. Hill

The deficiency that would be causing arrhytmia would be Magnesium. Search on Magnesium Glycinate, its an inexpensive but one of the best absorbable forms of Magnesium. Its a mineral supplement just like Calcium and Vit. D but we don't hear much about it. Doctors don't prescribe supplements, unfortunately, Nutritional supplementation is something we have to learn and search on our own like what you are doing now. I was in the medical field but It took me many years of search to have found Mg as help for many of my family's health issues. If you go on You Tube, search Magnesium Deficiency, you will learn so much more. Your family could use the info. Hopefully it would help each family member beat the heart irregularities .

In response to Jessica, NYC... have you tried TAURINE?

1) Magnesium Taurate supplementation helps irregular heart beats. Mg takes 6 to 12 months to build up in the system, so, patience. It also needs daily replacement as we use Mg in all our daily life activites.

2) use of Transdermal Mg ( Mg Oil Spray ) on top of taking the pills will speed up the build up process.

3) Epsom salt bath or foot soaks (Magnesium Sulfate) is cheaper and would also help. Eat Magnesium rich foods in addition, but know that Mg in food will not be enough. Pumpkin seeds, sunflower seeds, and greens are rich in Mg.

These forms of Magnesium will have favorable reviews on Amazon by people who have used it. Use of Magnesium supplements promotes sound sleep, relief of nervous tension, anxiety and "hundreds" of health issues. Do Search on Magnesium Deficiency.

[YEA]  Cardiac arrhythmia

I started with the Hydrogen Peroxide theraphy for another problem (Chron's disease), also I was experiencing arrhythmia, very bad. To my surprise my arrhythmia start to get less and less frequent. I did some research on google and on this site and found that this therapy is for almost everything. you can google Dr. David G Williams for details and also in this site Bill Munro has a very good posting and also a video showing the inhalation method that you can also try on YouTube. I did the drinking the water with the drops of hydrogen peroxide, but I'm going to try the inhalation. I pray God will protect this site, please do the same!!

[YEA]  I have a cardiac arrithymia since childhood. I am 54 now. I have researched and researched and researched after going to alot of cardiologists and trying mainstream remedies. I have tried magnesium, B vitamins, salt, potassium,etc. They all helped but did not cure my palpitations. My heart used to skip, and beat incredibly fast. I stopped going to the emergency room because they immediately wanted to do surgery, etc. The whole thing was terrifying. I cured this condition with one drop of REAL elemental iodine in my orange juice in the morning. Sea kelp and drugstore iodine did not work. Dr. Brownstein has written a book about it. You can tell if you are deficient by putting any iodine on the inside of your arm and watching to see if it lasts 24 hours. All my thyroid tests were normal. Every person I have told (who has arrithymia) has had a similiar experience!!!! One itsy bitsy drop of elemental iodine changed my life COMPLETELY. (I also paint my arm with it sometimes.)

Having just read the posts on arrythmias, could someone (Perhaps June from Ohio who suggested it) tell me where I could purchase elemental iodine? Thank you. I have had a long standing problem with PAT and PAF and would like to try something different.

[YEA]   I also have learned that along with avoiding soy (not sure if it is an allergy or what). . . If I have an arrhythmia flare up, I can paint a bit of iodine on my wrist and it will be better in just 5 minutes! I am not quite sure of the reasoning for this unless it is thyroid related (although all my tests came back "normal"). Whatever the reason, it works for me!

[YEA]   I got some Nascent iodine and started using it last week. Within a few days my heart stopped skipping beats. I tried many other things on this page, but the iodine seemed to do the trick. I put 7 drops in a 26 oz bottle of water and drank it all day. I also painted a drop on the inside of my left wrist once a day for a week.

Funny you mention iodine. If you do a little search on amiodarone and it's relationship to iodine levels you'll be quite surprised.

My problem was a corn allergy. I ate grits every day and had 220 bps tachycardia at least monthly and had to go in for conversion. I had to leave the US (permanently) to find a real doctor who cured it with a tropical diet.

Dear Arturo,

I use either Lugol's iodine (liquid) or Iodoral (tablet). I get either from amazon or iherb.

[YEA]  I occasionally have bouts of arrythmia: weak, rapid, irregular heartbeats. I've found that a dose of magnesium taurate will get the heart rate back on track in an amazingly short time.

I thought it was the best to use magnesium taurate to cure cardiac arrhythmia? Can anyone verify the best magnesium to take for this problem?

Replied by Nevada Smith

According to the book, The Magnesium Miracle, one of the most absorbable forms of magnesium [after an IV of magnesium] is magnesium oil [magnesium chloride] which is absorbed through the skin. Next would be magnesium glycinate, magnesium taurate & magnesium orotate. Magnesium citrate is fourth which is most popular due to it's cost. Magnesium oxide is a distant fifth and is poorly absorbed.

[YEA]   I have had mild arrhythmia for many years, but it had gotten very bad a couple of months ago, enough to scare me and send me to the doctor. They basically said not much they could do, and that there is medicine but sometimes the side effects are not worth it. I started taking the Super Magnesium (2 tablets daily) from _____ and have not had a single episode since then.

Magnesium, Blackstrap Molasses

Posted by Selena (Rocky Gap, Va) on 04/21/2015

[YEA]  I was diagnosed with; irregular heartbeat, SVT, (250 beats per min.and I would black out), and mitro valve prolapse. I refused the meds prescribed and read Dr. Mark Sircus' book; "Magnesium; the ultimate Heart Medicine", I then started using the magnesium oil transdermally and got immediate relief with the irregular/palpatations etc. I have not had an attack of the SVT since 2006. Because there was still the occasional times when my heart was out of sync; I continued to read for something more. I read "Crude Blackstrap Molasses" by Cyril Scott, starting taking two Tbs. daily and for me that was the magic. The minerals in molasses did the job. I take it daily and would not be without it. Both books are filled with much needed knowledge. I highly recommend both. You will see and feel the difference.

Hello Selena (Rocky Gap) --- I read your post with pleasure because you made such excellent choices. For many years I have kept a booklet by Cyril Scott as well as a booklet on ACV by Paul Bragg. Off and on I read these booklets again, marvelling at the simple and excellent remedies they are.

For example, as arthritis is a mineral deficiency disease, it is ideal to take BSM and it indeed relieved me of pain and arthritis for many years. I still take BSM and as long as I do, no more joint pain. I think it was suggested in the booklet on BSM to include ACV as well especially for cysts and cancer. It had great success since BSM dries tumours so an invasive treatment is not needed in the end. But there were more benefits, for the brain etc.

Just to mention that it was delightful also to see you include Dr. Sircus' transdermal magnesium treatment.

Well, I treasure these two booklets and wish you all the best.

Namaste, Om

[YEA]  Hi every one just a quick word to let everyone it's been 2 months to the day since I posted I was taking Magnesium and COQ10 so therefore I have been taking these supplements for 3 months now and guess what? Still no Arrythmia. I don't think about when the next time it may happen now, this a great site to gain knowledge for your health and wellbeing. I hope this helps someone.

[BETTER BUT NOT CURED]  I have been suffering from Cardio Arrythmia for about thirteen years about once or twice a month, sometimes more I have been to a few doctors and they have said that no one has died fom it yet BUT it is very scary, the longest time period it has lasted is five hours so I went straight to the Doctor while it was still happening so he could properly diagnose the condition I HAVE BEEN ON PRESCRIPTION ASPIRIN SINCE TO REDUCE THE RISK OF STROKE also a prescription drug for the control of the rhythym but it still happened.

Five weeks ago I went to a Naturopath and he put me on Magnesium and Co-enzyme Q10. Since starting on these natural medications I have had one short burst of Cardio Arythmia for about fifteen seconds and that's all in five weeks, I will keep posting of this improvement if there is anymore improvement.

Magnesium, Omega 3 Supplements

[YEA]  Magnesium and Omega 3s:

I have had continuous arrhythmias for over a year. I tried everything including pharmaceuticals and alternative methods. I decided to try Omega 3s, 1280 of DHA, plus magnesium glycinate 400 mg. Both of these I take daily in divided doses. It has been 6 weeks without a recurrence and I am amazed! There is nothing else I did differently so have to assume it is these 2 supplements. What a relief it has been! I hope someone else can be helped by this simple combination, too.

[YEA]  Blackstrap molasses! Sometimes--not often--I suffer from arrhythmia. Happened last night, still had it this morning. Tried Mag and ACV/baking soda without effect. Downed a big spoonful of blackstrap molasses, and my pulse became steady within a short time. Amazing!

[YEA]  arrythmia: I had a heart attack when I was 52; I am 63 now. I have kept my diet to a minimum of saturated fats although I believe in using butter and olive oil instead of margarine. I take supplements that included: fish oil, spirulina, flaxseed oil, garlic, glucosamine, msm, chondroitin, co-q 10,men's mega multiple, green source multiple, and a few others now for the past 11 years. In mid November 08, I started heart palputations that have been coming on more frequently. Some of my blood work over the years have indicated low potassium and I have been suspecting now that it is causing the arrythmia. Lately now I have been taking an occasional spoonful of sorghum or molasses, which has seemed to help. Last night (2/8/09) as I tried to sleep I had the arrythmia fairly heavily. Deep breathing did not help me. Finally I got up at midnight and took a .025 mg. xanax and a tablespoon of dark sorghum to wash it down. Within 1/2 hour the arrthymia went away and I got a good night's sleep.

EC: "Sweet sorghum is any of the many varieties of sorghum which have a high sugar content. Sweet sorghum will thrive under drier and warmer conditions than many other crops and is grown primarily for forage, silage, and sugar production."

"Sweet sorghum syrup is called "molasses" or "sorghum molasses" in some regions of the U.S., but the term molasses more properly refers to a different sweet syrup, made as a byproduct of the sugarcane or sugar beet production."

I'm going to purchase some molasses shortly so I can have the potassium ready when I am out of bananas and/or veggie juice. For a few days I had been having A-Fib symptoms and then earlier today I ended having a serve A-Fib attack. It was bad enough that I thought I was going to end up in the hospital again. But then, I got to thinking about the chips I ate yesterday and the fact that I hadn't been eating my daily banana or two for about a week. So, I opened a bottle of veggie juice and downed 12 ounces. After about 15 minutes I poured another glass of juice and started eating a banana. Within 25 minutes of drinking the first glass of veggie juice I could feel my heart go into a more regular rhythm. RELIEF! I finished off the second glass of juice and banana and drank a third glass of veggie juice over the course of about two hours. I ended up ingesting between 1800 to 2000 mgs of potassium. I feel great now.

[YEA]  I too found Molasses an instant treatment for my heart problem. Every night my heart has a delayed beat (confirmed with overnight monitor) but doctor gave me no treatment beyond giving up caffiene. While that helps, it doesn't totally eliminate it and I admit no caffiene is difficult for me. After the first day of 2 Tbls Molasses, I sleep through the night with no problems. And this is such a relief as it really is extremely scarey to awaken to no heart beat, over and over and over. This also cured my extremely heavy menustration

[YEA]  I was low on potassium, and having heart arrhythmia because of it. 1 tbs each morning, and occasionally another tsp in the early evening keeps it away!

for some years i have been sending in reports of my experience with arrhythmia. i have been hospitalized three times been given coumiden and told i need to stay on it for life as well as some other drugs for rapid heart beat. i have searched and searched and they do not make things easy for those searching for answers.

thank goodness for the internet. i have tried with some improvement juicing, fasting, diet, exercise, sea salt, and more but really got to the bottom of it when i discovered most things are digestive related. i found out i had symptoms of candida. i once had a white tongue, itchy anus constantly, sinus congestion, massive amounts of mucous after eating, and other seemily unrelated symptoms. it was then with all the stomach mucous i discovered was undigested protein and that was a result of lack of stomach acid and poor protein digestion. i put this all together and realized candida was in my stomach and my colon as well as the sinuses.

i started treating that and soon found my digestive problems were also my heart problems. when i first started taking hcl stomach acid there was massive die off of candida in my stomach and my intestines. finally i started to feel something with the die off. as unpleasant as it was, it was progress things that did not belong were dying. i also started taking systemic enzymes, and digestive enzymes and my digestion improved 100% as well as my a fib.

my theory is my colon was so full of toxic waste from undigested food it was poisoning my body and the heart was beating fast and out of rhythm in response to that poisoning. clean the liver and clean the blood with enzymes and juicing and many of the things bothering you will disappear. not right away but in time. try hcl and if one pill does not seem to give you any response of being too acid try two and up until you find the right amount. i gave one to a friend and he could not take one without feeling a burn. i take four and feel nothing. i had almost no stomach acid. if your stomach is not acid then your blood will be and that's a disease waiting to happen. you need the stomach acid strong and the blood to be alkaline for good health. i had just the opposite.

so here is what i did and i think i may have found the cure. i have taken no drugs for two years and am not dead yet. in fact i get healthier every day at age 66. rebounder, weights and running

hcl- three or four with each meal

digestive enzymes -three with each meal

juicing- carrot, apple beet celery cucumber every single day

Also good for you would be chlorella and spirulina. Read the free ebook at They clean the blood and detox the body and are very alkaline.

Also Ann Wigmore also recommended wheatgrass implants as a good way to clean the bowel but also get nutrients back into the bowel. Her book "The Wheatgrass Book" is excellent.

Can you please explain what is hcl. Also when you juice, how many carrots, apples, beets and cucumber you use. I can not use celery because it creates gas in body.
