I tried so many of the remedies on this site, and could find no relief. The arrhythmia was getting so bad, at times I felt like I would die. I even was getting desperate enough to consider going to a doctor - which I only do if I figure I am going to die. Then, I read about taurine on this site. I had been vegan for several months. I had wanted to be vegetarian, not vegan, but since I am allergic to eggs and dairy, it made me pretty effectively vegan. In desperation, I switched over to eating meat again and taking taurine as a supplement. Voila! In short order, the arrhythmias disappeared! I thank God for Earth Clinic!

Well, it's me again and I am still searching for a way to address my heart situation. After a visit to two Knoxville, Tn cardiologists, I am at a loss as to what to do next. First of all I have been doing EDTA Chelation for over a year just to avoid just what is happening. I have been with over 300 heart by-pass folks and no way will they do another by-pass or stint. They don't even go to a cardiologist anymore. They use chelation to keep their arteries open.

My tests show that I have both a restriction and arrhythmia. I continue to do chelation but my cardiologists insist that I have a cardiogram and stints and bypass as they deem necessary. I refuse and they refuse to address my irregular heart beat. It pisses off heart doctors if you do chelation. There is no big money for them. Chelation cost's $ 3000 and by-passes are in the hundred of thousands.

Not only that , it pisses them off if you have an Anti Aging Doctor who does hormone modulation or supplements as I do. You got to do big pharma's stuff. You got to stay sick and visit them every few weeks.

At 73 , I thought I was in good shape. Upon reflection it appears that my heart damage was done when I was younger and in job stress as well as when I had Sleep Apnea. I will do better in the next life, if I don't come back as a goat.

Doctors don't like for you to challenge them. Just be a good little boy or girl and follow orders. It's a GOD thing. As a card carrying Redneck, I don't do that. They can kiss my grits.

Excuse my vent, but I had to or explode.

Hi Robert...Although EDTA chelation therapy clears plaque from within the smaller blood vessels, current research has found that it does not have much effect on the bigger arteries near the heart.

A relatively new discovery, recent research has also found that dilute solutions of hydrogen peroxide -- by way of chelation IV therapy -- DOES successfully clear plaque and obstructions near the heart.

There is a therapy called CHELOX THERAPY that combines both the EDTA and Hydrogen peroxide chelation therapies which has been quite successful. See this link here:

http://www.website-articles.net/Article/Chelox-Therapy---Chelation-Therapy--A-Common-Purpose/30980

As well -- regarding your heart arrythmia problems -- you might like to try three further protocols:

* Taking magnesium supplements -- such as Mag Chloride, Mag Citrate or Mag Gluconate.

* Taking baths with two cupfuls of Magnesium chloride or Epsom salt crystals. This method uses transdermal absorbtion by the skin of the body to absorb the Magnesium. I also use a simple garden sprayer -- 8 oz of water plus 2 tablespoons of Epsom Salts -- and just spray it all over my body after a shower and let it dry and be absorbed. This is the fastest, safest way to get your magnesium levels up. See this link:

* Take mega-doses of vitamin C. Linus Pauling, a double winner of the Nobel prize went on to study vitamins. He has proved by research (which the medical profession has completely ignored), that taking 4-6 GRAMS of Vitamin C with 4-6 GRAMS L-Lysine, an amino acid, removes plaque and heart blockages. Pauling also referred to the arterial plaque as "Arterial Scurvy". See these links here:
http://www.hearttechnology.com/pauling_therapy.html

http://ehealthforum.com/health/topic10681.html

The two magnesium protocols I've mentioned also got rid of my regular episodes of racing heart. I also found that I could sleep much better, and it raised my energy levels. I'm over 60 y o bye the way. My determination of my own problem was that my calcium intake was both too high and unregulated because of low magnesium in my body.

Magnesium is very important for your body and is involved in over 300 major enzyme processes. It is also involved in the regulation of calcium in the tissues(think arterial plaque) and magnesium is also critical to the heart muscle(or heartbeat) -- being the important part of the relaxation process.

Bill, Will magnesium malate work for arrythmias?

Hi Mikec...I can think of no reason why magnesium malate should not work for arrythmia. The malic acid from ACV is converted to sodium malate salt when Baking Soda(Sodium Bicarbonate) is added to ACV in solution. Malates will provide more energy for the cell Kreb's cycle. The magnesium part should act in the normal way to relax the heart muscle more as well as help balance any excess calcium, acidity and tension created in the heart muscle.

The more usual magnesium forms to supplement are mag chloride, mag citrate and mag gluconate. I have seen and bought magnesium gluconate from GNC in SM Mall in Baguio and Manila. I have also seen various magnesium supplements at Healthy Option shops in SMs like Asia Mall.

I found that both taking Magnesium Bicarbonate water and absorbing magnesium sulphate(Epsom Salts) in solution transdermally was the best way to get rid of my own arrythmia problems. I bought a large milk carton of Epsom Salts crystals from Healthy Options recently and it cost only 99 pesos. I put a couple of tablespoonfuls of Epsom Salt crystals in a garden sprayer and, after my shower, just spray myself all over and let it be absorbed transdermally. This is the most economical way to absorb larger amounts of magnesium than supplementing -- and with this method there will be no intestinal problems.

I just want to thank the person that mentioned Vitamin C Therapy and Linus Pauling. It appears Mr Pauling had the answer years ago and the drug and medical industry has spent years trying to keep it a secret. My doctor told me " It doesn't matter what you do, you will never correct this problem yourself without medical treatment." Of course by medical treatment he meant to shock the heart, pacemaker or some other medical witch doctor baloney and of course the dangerous and deadly drugs. Here take this drug it will calcify your arteries, cause cancer and you can bleed to death but at least you will not have a stroke. Some choice.

Vitamin C Therapy is the answer to all of your problems with the heart. Take my word for it because I had A fib worse than any of you, it was a 24 hour 7 day a week problem with a heart beat of 155 beats a minute. In the mornings, I would wake to a heart beating out of the chest, not sometimes but every morning... Once again my thanks to the person that posted the part about Linus Pauling and I want to thank you for saving me from this problem as micro nutrient therapy is the answer to the riddle I was beating my head against the wall trying to find. No thanks to the dangerous and deadly incompetent medical industry with their dangerous chemicals and primitive medical practices.

To all: The entire cardiovascular and cancer research pretty much, done by Dr. Linus Pauling (d. 1994) and his less well known co-researcher Dr. Matthias Rath who actually was Dr. Pauling's mentor in Vitamin C therapy after he retired at 65 in order to pursue this, can be found in a few key documents on Dr. Rath's site here:
http://www4.dr-rath-foundation.org/

Select the SCIENCE tab, then SCIENTIFIC PUBLICATIONS:
http://www4.dr-rath-foundation.org/THE_FOUNDATION/scientific_publications.html

Among the discoveries made by Dr. Rath the following rank highest:

1. The discovery that atherosclerosis, heart attacks and strokes are an early form of scurvy caused by a chronic vitamin deficiency of the vascular wall. Read about it in Dr. Rath's book 'The Heart'. (PDF, 1. 43 MB)

http://www4.dr-rath-foundation.org/pdf-files/heart_book.pdf

Looking at the TOC inside, Arrythmia is in CH. 6, on Page 96. This has been freely available online since 2001, and the Pauling scientific studies were released in the early 1990's just a few years before Dr. Pauling died. But some slides are like an open-face book, there are two pages per slide. So in the PDF doc, if you put 96 into the page box and expect to get there, you'll note there are only 96 pages or slides total, so you'd be on the very last page. The correct number to put in the box above is '48'. This gets you to Chapter 6 Arrythmia. In here is the case studies, dosages and frequency, etc. For the various supplements, minerals, Vitamin C and amino acids!

Richard, I developed arrythmia issues last year and was put on 25 mg Toprol, which I have recently stopped taking (didn't like the side effects and slowly reduced the amount). I researched it and from this website learned that lactic acid can build up in all our muscles (including the heart).. And can cause the arrythmia. I believe that I had exercised so much, was eating yogurt (has lactic acid in it), and the combination of electrolytes being down, the lactic acid from both working out and the yogurt, could have contributed to the arrythmia.

I have recently read a book call The Magnesium Factor by Seelig and Rosanoff which has explained how most Americans are seriously low in magnesium. Since stopping the Toprol and reading the book, I take 1 tsp of magnesium powder before going to bed (I use a product called CALM I found in the health food store, not sure who makes it... ). I'm having a 48-hr halter monitor test Thursday and Friday this week (cardiologist was upset when I told them I gradually stopped the Toprol on my own... They say people don't usually go off it. I didn't want to stay on it for life! ). Not sure how old you are, but some of us remember Jim Fixx who got Americans running, and then up and died of a heart attack one day, which was pretty confusing to the masses. It could be that lactic acid & low levels of magnesium (an electrolyte) contributed to it. By the way, I also don't drink coffee and instead use a tablespoon of blackstrap molasses (has potassium) in hot water as a drink at work. Hope this helps...Anne

I also learned somewhere on this site that apple cider vinegar is helpful in cases of arrythmia. Will like to hear about how your situation improves. I live in a high-rise and have developed tinnitus noticeably more at home.. am wondering if all the 'waves' in my building could be an issue for both the tinnitus and arrythmia....Anne

I would just like to say; I love your site. I believe God first in all things. Luke was a Dr. So we have need of caring for ourselves at times while the Lord works out all of our issues and promises to heal us by his stripes. He does and sometimes we can play a part in it.

I had bad heart arithymia about 8-9 years ago.

I was at the point they were going to put the pacemaker in, as I was in filbilation all of the time. A new heart Dr.Was added to the practice and he told me lets try something they had been working on at the university. So I had two weeks to get better basically (from what I remember), he put me on slow magnesium 2 pills a day. My heart before the end of the two weeks started to beet normal. However if I don't take it for several months the fililations returns. I for some reason am normal to low on the blood test, but they don't know why.

In some states and countries you may have to get the slow mag from the pharmist, you have to order in st. louis and then pick it up but it saved my life.

Following surgery for a blocked carotid artery, I found out about ProArgi-9. Wonderful stuff for clearing arterial plaque. You simply take a scoop each morning and night in a glass of water. Much easier than chelation systems I have tried.

Please do Google it and find out about Dr Prendergast, the inventor. My surgeon has never heard of it and does not want to know about it!!!

I was having angina, I already have a double bypass, Atherosclerosis, a pace maker, and VA could only offer nitro as a cure. I thought, I am going to die. So I started researching homeopathic cures, and found basketfuls on the www & YouTube, and tried a bunch of them with a 95% turnaround in two months, no angina, no high blood pressure, clear arteries, no diabetes, no COPD, no body cramps.

I would now recommend two great products, Serrapetase removes anything nonliving from your system and arties, scarring from heart attacks, etc. And Nattokinase will remove blood clots. I am waiting on my first order of Nattokinase to arrive, and I just quit Serrapetase as I feel my system is super cleaned now. I want to see what affect the Nattokinase will have on arteries in the brain and possible headache cure and varicose veins. Doctors in Europe & Japan are using these instead of doing by-passes, angina, etc. I used the Serrapetase for about six months, and will use it occasionally in a lower 1/2 dose and maybe every 3 months, I will use it for a month.

I want to calm some fears for pacemakers & wires and stints, Serrapetase had no affect on these items in my veins or heart. I didn't short out or anything. BUT it did a job on plaque and I can tell the difference. I went from a 1/2 block a day to 2 miles, and can run up and down my stairs like a 16 year old. I am 68.

I thank Arginine for giving me strength. weight lifters use it too! ACV & Highlands pills for stopping leg cramps. Good tip. Take along some highland leg cramp pills when you walk. Your legs won't feel tired. And dilate before you go.

Just a WARNING!! Don't use these if you recently had any surgery or getting ready to have surgery. They can stop healing.

A good morning drink to clean arterys & end hardening, is to use 1 8oz warmed glass of water, add 4 tbsp lemon juice & 2 tbsp. honey.

A good night drink, 2 tbsp. Apple Cider Vinegar in 4-6 oz of water. Ends those night or early morning leg cramps forever!! If you feel any body cramp durning the day, use this method. The cramp is saying give me calcium, magnesium & potassium, one of those is deficit.

Wish you well!!

Hi Mike from Stockton

I have fairly high blockage on descending arteries and get breathless easily, was 65% after NO intervention during an exam. That was 6 yrs ago. I continue along my merry way without stents etc and do Yoga, take nutrition and the occasional glass of wine weekly. I am trialling EDTA powder orally and, other than clearing out the bowel, can't assess any other benefits over 3 weeks. Take about 1500mg in divided doses over 24 hours on empty stomach.

You mention Serrapeptase - taking it for 6 months. How do you evaluate the blockages have cleared - you mention running etc. Did you have an angiogram to confirm?

Would you share the amount you took, and similarly for Nattokinase.

Many thanks.

For the user who mentioned homeopathic remedies I would love to know the names and dosages that worked for you. Understandably its different for each person but seeing a Homeopath may help me also.

Have you tried Molasses? It has 4 YEAS.

EDTA has been historically used to clean the arteries. Nattokinase has obsoleted EDTA. Unless there is a blood flow problem, I wouldn't think this would work for Arrhythmia.

Recently Dr Mercola published few studies that found that both marathon runners and long distance runners have arrhythmia. He claims also that researchers found that long continuous exercise is not as beneficial as short high intensity bursts, lasting only 20 min or so he calls it (HIT). I also wanted to add that I personally developed arrhythmia at age 58, shortly after completing my cross country trip on a bicycle in the year 2000. It supports of what Anne from Chicago said, about strenuous long term activity and possible "lactic acid buildup". I did not have any issues beforehand. I still have the AFIB, my pulse is very low (well conditioned athlete) but the hurt rate is irregular and the Drs for long time wanted to put me on blood thinners (for the last 13 years, but I refused). So far so good, but would like to get rid of the AFIB, now I'm 70 and still bicycle a lot. Taking Mg glycynate (400Mg) but not sure if it helps.

Roman, I was a jogger of 6-8k 4 times a week when I came down with AF at 56. After 4 years of several cardios/EPs treating symptoms and Meds that never work or lose effectiveness, Im med/allopathic medicine free. Its not any one activity/diet etc that brings on arrhythmia, but any and all including raising LA in our bodies that depletes the number one mineral our hearts crave, Magnesium. Strenuous exercise is moving up the ladder, however it has a long way to go to catch 1.Alcohol and 8. Caffeine as Mag depletors. Your Mag intake is too low. 400mg is fine for normal people, but were not normal. Plus, gylcinate is very difficult to absorb and hold in, possibly only getting 100mg in your blood. I take on average, 800mg along with a few other things and increase that to 1200-2000mg depending on heart feeling and getting back to NSR. I use Mag Malate and Mag Oil.

I also am back to drinking moderately, mostly wine a few times a week and drinking coffee 1-2 cups in the morning. Just know I have to load up on the Mag when I do this.

Hi Roman and James, I am also a runner, for over 20 years now, age 56. I have had irregular heart rate for about 10-15 years now. Mine is slow and irregular. It happens about every 2 weeks and lasts for up to 24 hours. Then it goes away for another 2 weeks or so with an occasional irregular beat here and there in between. I feel like I've tried cutting out just about every food I can, alcohol, caffeine, dairy, glutamate, etc. I've also tried many supplements, potassium, magnesium, taurine, all the vitamins and still have it. Even took a month off of running just to see if it mattered. During the days after an episode I can eat anything and do anything without an episode. But for some strange reason I seem to be on a schedule of every 2 weeks. Sometimes I will go back to back some weeks but usually it's every 2 weeks. Sometimes it will only last 12 hours but usually it's closer to 24 hours, never more than that. I been to the doc, did the ekg, echo. They say my heart is fine and recommend the usual blood thiners, etc. I also have little to no dizziness, chest pain or other symptoms. I wish I knew what to do to get rid of it. I'm a little concerned with going overboard on the magnesium but am also tempted to try more. Currently I take about 300 mgs of supplements also eat foods high in magnesium like spinach, nuts, etc. I use to run alot, like 70 miles per week, now more like 40 mpw, have run over 100 races along with 7 marathons. I also sweat a ton when I run except in the winter it isn't too bad. Just wish I could figure this out. I'm worried one day my heart's just going to stop, I mean at a young age, relatively speaking.

As I'm writing this I'm in afib now. Should be stopping soon, it's been about 23 hours. When it happens my hr gets as low as 37 bpm. Normally it'a about 48-60, lower at night, higher during the day. Not sure if the cayenne or other remedies would work for me. Probably will need a pacemaker at some point. Just hope I figure it out before that. If there's an answer that is. Do either of you think I should try to double my magnesium doses, maybe up to 600 mgs a day? A little concerned about too much. Maybe I worry too much. Oh well good luck to all you folks. Hope to hear back from some of you. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

Hi Bruce.

Info Fyi...54 Year old, not super fit, not super unfit, non smoking woman here. Average person, average weight. Moderate drinker.

I get low heart rate (48 BPM) and heart palpitations. It's weird, when my BP is high, I have a low heart rate, when my BP is low....the opposite. I notice that my heart rate picks up if I eat something. Maybe it is a blood sugar issue?

Since I began taking 40,000 units of Serrapeptase about ten days ago, my blood pressure has been WAY lower, and NO palpitations! From what I have read about Serrapeptase, it makes the blood thinner, and helps clean out the arteries by consuming fiberin. Something you may want to google....Serrapeptase.

I have also been upping my magnesium, (Threonate and Malate) and taking at LEAST 500mg a day. As a man, I believe you could safely take 200mg more than that, until you have loose stools, which is the most reliable way to know you have reached your limit. Mg is also complimented by vitamin B6. Read up on that too if interested. There are Many co-factors for magnesium.

Another thing...consider chiropractic for the Vegas Nerve. I also started getting my upper back (C7) adjusted two weeks ago after reading that may help some people with AFIB. My upper back has been a source of misery for me for decades....and I was thinking...even if it didn't help the palps, maybe I could get some back relief. It is helping both, I believe.

Just some alternative type of things to consider, and possibly "Google". I know how awful palpitations are, and hope you figure yours out! Good luck!

B: Insufficient bile flow which is a condition called cholestasis and/or cholesterol gallstones can and do cause heart irregularities.

It would prove advantageous to broaden the scope of your heart support nutrients w/ advanced nutraceuticals like Carnitine, CoQ10, and d-Ribose. Dr Sinatra goes into some detail on these nutrients in his publications and media presentation; along w/ warnings on the dangers of statin drugs for reducing cholesterol.

If you haven't made the switch from processed salt to Sea or Himalayan Salt, then now is the time to do that. These "real" salts have other major & trace minerals which provide a complete balance to body chemistry.

Hi Carly,

Didn't see a reply button on your post so went to the next one down. Not sure on how this site works just yet.

Anyway, thanks for the reply. I will try another 200 mg of magnesium as you suggest and monitor. Today I took some others advice and bought some ACV and cayenne pepper, just to try. You never know when that one thing may make a difference. I will also look into your suggestion about serrapeptase (never heard of it). I like your other suggestion about the cervical spine. I've had problems in my neck area in the past, mind pain and stiffness, and had considered that to be a possible problem. Sometimes get numbness in my finger tips too. It may be worth checking out and getting an adjustment in that area.

Again, thanks for the tips. I love these kinds of sites. I've solved more problems on the internet. You never know when you'll come across that one bit on information that makes the difference. Think I'll keep visiting this site. I'm always having one problem or another that I would like to improve. Sometimes I have some things to share also. Not sure if they allow links to other sites here. Some sites I've visited claim that glutamate is a big problem. Found a nice lecture video of a Dr Blaylock on this topic, He calls them excitotoxins and in high doses they can penetrate the blood brain barrier and cause a wide range of problems. Let me see if I can post the link. If the site doesn't like them then they can delete them I suppose.

Scroll down this page a bit to get the Blaylock video, pretty interesting:

Thanks Bruce!

I am glad you are finding alternative ways of looking at your health issues here. I have been posting and reading (mostly reading) Earth Clinic for years now! Amazing how fast time goes by.

Re E.C.: there are so many people on here that are MUCH more informed on natural cures than I am. We all share what is true for us, and people can either take it, or leave it...the point is sharing our experiences and attempting to maybe help even one other person. Nothing is written in stone for each individual...nor should it be!

Doctor Blaylock is an interesting read. Also, look on youtube for some talks by a Doctor Frank Shallenberger. He has some very interesting lectures as well. Not all will apply to you, but the ones that do, are just awesome.

MSG and glutamates....horrible stuff. Taurine (an amino acid) counteracts MSG. It competes with it in your system. My husband would get heart palpitations after eating a French dip with the au jus at a certain restaurant. I tasted the au jus, and it literally burned my tongue. Not because it was hot...because it felt like so Damned CHEMICAL. So anyway, that was when I looked up what counteracts MSG....turns out is it the amino acid Taurine.

Because my husband continues to eat fast / ie CRAP foods....I make sure his daily vitamins include a 500mg of taurine daily. He has not had another horrid reaction for a couple of years now.

I am rambling...just wanted to say that I am glad you found Earth Clinc, and welcome aboard!

Carly, Glad to be aboard. This seems like a good site. No registration either which I like. Post away, no hassle.

I didn't know taurine counteracted MSG. I found out about taurine on a running site. This runner said it cured his arrythmia. I tried it for a couple of months and continued to have my episodes so I stopped. But recently started taking it again. I have the 500 mg also. I've always thought MSG was a problem for me, a trigger. Whenever I eat chinese food, soups and other stuff with MSG I seem to have a problem. I read all labels now. I'm surprised your husband even goes near it, I don't anymore. But I guess if the taurine cancels the effects then why not. It does add flavor.

Bought some CoQ10 today. I'm trying everything, getting desperate to find a cure for this. I take so many supplements now. I do feel better in many areas since I started taking supplements. I think when you exercise aggressively like I do you lose a lot of nutrients through sweat, etc. I always thought I was getting enough through food but I think I was wrong. I now feel better, sleep better, think better, less stressed, since adding supplements. Just wish the darn afib would go away. Like so many other problems I've had in the past I usually find the answer at some point.

Nice chatting

Hello

I am 30 year old runner (15 years o training) and I have had arythmia problem for 5-6 years. I have irregular heart beat after end of the training (not during) sometimes when I stand very quickly or lay down from standing postion - my heart stops and beats very slow but very strong and there are some extra heart beats. During the stress there is the same situation. Lot of circumstances when I have it. I tried lot of magnesium - didn't work. Suplementation with vit C B Q10 CAL MAG D, MAG, ZInk, Kelp, selenium, chrom with wanad - most of them from nutrilite. Nothing has changed. My heart beats slowly but very strong after my entrance on the second floor upstaris it stops then it beats irregular- I don't feel tired by my chest is doing everything incorrect. during that I have something like reflux but with empty bubbles of air - nothing else.

I'll agree with the first responder to this post, as it appears the problem is in the circulation and not the heart itself. There are several different cleanses you can do for the arteries & veins. For veins take Rutin, White Oak Bark, Horse Chestnut, Butchers Broom. For arteries Cayenne/Ginger, Hawthorn, Garlic, Gingko Biloba, ACV, Lemon Juice, MSM/Vit-C/L-Lysine.

Another problem source to consider is Parasites, especially Ascaris aka Roundworm. If you have indoor/outdoor pets or are around tame or wild animals as a hobby or trade, you are likely exposed to parasites. Ascaris stages are very damaging to arteries and the heart. Someone only days ago posted here on E.C. of a recent heart surgery or ablation and after recovering from that procedure is back to the heart pains which she has now found are caused by parasites (is doing para cleanses now).

Better But With Side Effects

Hello, I did the 2 TBSP of Epsom salt mixed with 8 oz's of water because I was having what felt like a skipped heart beat. I sprayed it all over my body & did notice that the skipped heart beats stopped within 20 minutes. Also I slept much better than I have in a long time. However the next morning I did have diarrhea. So my question is can a person get diarrhea from spraying the Epsom salt water combination onto their body this way? Not sure if it was from the spray or not. If from the spray then any suggestions on how much to spray in order to get the benefits of the magnesium. Thank you

Yes it can. Any overdose of magnesium will have that effect, which is what is in Epsom salts. Similar to Vit C it's best to start low and then work your way up till you find your tolerance level(it helps but has no lose bowels).

Don't think the above answer is correct. Magnesium was applied externally and should not have caused a diarrhea.

Hi there. I have heart arrythmia (well HAD it) for about a year. I would have an episode where my heart was beating all over the place or skipping beats about once a week to once every 2 weeks. The episodes could last for most of a day and sometimes longer. They left me worn out and feeling crappy.

Now I am a big fan of oats and would eat them regularly but it seems that oats are not my friend. There came a time when I stopped eating oats for 3 months and for the entire time my heart arrythmia stopped (as did my frequent heartburn). I then ate oats for one week and low and behold both my arrythmia and heartburn returned. That was when I noticed the correlation and so I again stopped eating oats for a few months. The heartburn and arrythmia ceased immediately. Recently I ate oats again and the symptoms returned.

I therefore now do not eat oats. I can eat bread and I eat cornflakes every morning but no oats.

I've asked doctors about this but they seem to discard it and tell me I shouldn't have stopped taking the medication (which I took for only about 1 week as it seemed to make the arrythmia worse), even though I seem to have cured my problems without drugs.

I have found no scientific evidence for my case and have searched the internet for reasons for why it works but there seems nothing. In fact I have found a number of sites recommending oats for heart problems, so I can't explain it, but hey... cutting out oats from your diet to see what happens can't harm anyone so I hope this helps someone with the same problem.

GOOD LUCK!!!

Thanks for your comments. I have also had trouble after eating oatmeal. Many other foods seem to cause V tach, skipping and extra beats too, but usually when trying to sleep. I think sweets and flour products, fried food, beef, gas causing foods, beans, red sauces, tomatos, milk, cake, etc, all contribute. Coffee drives it crazy (Chickory is my substitute- limited amounts). No colas anymore for me. Episodes begin just as I am fading into sleep and last off and on all night. Can't hardly sleep. Gets much worse in early A. M. When heart slows, skips, bangs, wakes me. I was prescribed Toprol, maybe helped some, but won't continue on it for long. Have felt terrible for a year or more, no energy and have battled GERD for years, progressively worse. I think the GERD causes the V tach, maybe the V tach caused the GERD, though. Doctors don't care, just want to treat one, not the other and prescribe only chemicals. I was ordered to stop all supplements by the cardio Dr. I think diet and magnesium and other things on here will help. Right now I will try to eat a lot from about 8am to 2pm, then maybe almost complete fast till bedtime so I can sleep. On of my best nights was after I fasted all day, but I have to eat. I think we need more info / research on the connection between digestive system -GERD- and arrythmia. BTW, ACV helps with GERD.

Carl, from Floridale, Try eating a red Delicious apple after dinner and also as required during the day for your GERD. I was placed on Nexium (for life) at age 70 because of Gerd and a Hiatus Hernia.

Persevered for a month or so as I had been on Nexium for about a year and was back and forward between apples and pills in that time. Gerd is now resolved and I swear by this method.

Hello fellow arrhythmia sufferers!

So happy to have found this website. I have read all the posts of natural remedies and cannot wait to try. I have pac's or ectopic beats everyday and night now. Have been to EP doctor and have had 2 ablations. 1st one did cure the tacchycardia but irregular beats persist. I will try acv with soda, mag, cayenne, molasses, and even giving up the yogurt and oats. I refuse heart meds and truly believe in the gi connection and a vitamin deficiency. God bless all of us to find the cure! Amy

I developed an arrhythmia in 1996 two years after a car accident where my stationary car was struck by a drunk driving a 15 passenger van at high speed. In the accident I sufferred some damage to my neck, back, struck my head etc. I have since learned that damage to the vegus nerve can cause cardiac arrhythmia as well as numerous other problems. The doctor assigned by my insurance plan put me on a regimen of 600mg of ibuprofen every six hours for pain, not only in my back and neck, but also for an arthritic knee. Which had been operated on previously. I have learned since, that Ibuprofen and other "nsaids", in high dose (over 400mg/day), can damage the myelin sheath which is the equivalent of electrical insulation on our nerves. I have read that this can cause nerve impulses to leak and activate muscles along the path of the nerve which can result in twitches, spasms, or arrhythmia. Long term use even at lower dosages can also have the same affect.

If a person already has arrhythmia, then I imagine use of these types of drugs may make the problem worse. I also learned that most nsaids cause red blood cells to clump together unnaturally, Which leads to stroke. Especially if one already has an arrhythmia. The first course of action we need to take is to find a physician who wants to cure us instead of treat us with the pharmaceutical industry crap for the rest of our lives which in most cases causes a host of other problems requiring more wonder drugs.

Thanks to my naivete in trusting my doctors I have become disabled, suffered two strokes, developed constant diarrhea, dizziness, temporarily lost the ability to swallow, and temporarily went blind in my right eye. On top of this I developed M.R.S.A. while in the hospital. Western Medicine SUCKS! The criminals at the A.M.A. , F.D.A., the drug conglomerates, Insurance companies, Politicians with price tags around their necks, and the so called JUDICIAL SYSTEM that covers and protects their miserable asses all need to be completely destroyed and rebuilt, with the best interest of humanity as the goal instead of the bank accounts of the scumbags in power.

Hi Steve, Thank you for your contribution. I totally agree that it would be such a treat to find a doctor who is actually interested in healing this Arrythmia instead of dosing you up with as many drugs as possible! I have just been told I may need to have an ablation and I really don't want to go down this road! Having researched Ablation it sounds very invasive indeed not to mention dangerous. It's Magnesium for me and Vit C and no more coffee or chocolate! :-(( Or Alcohol! ) Must try the Epsom salt baths and spray! What a great site! I wish you well and I will also steer clear of Ibuprofen also. I don't take it but now and then I might take a few for low back pain.

I had a cardiac ablation from a dr who put me on atenolol.. I had to be wheelchaired into the hospital and 3 days later walked out in perfect health... I had it done at New England Medical Center, Boston... The operation is nothing.. The anxiety before it is not good. But knowing what I do now, I'd have it done in a heartbeat (pun intended. ) Before I went in my resting pulse was 160, if I walked it would go up to close to 200 and I would just about pass out... The punchline is I never even had HBP once in my life.. But a dr talked me into going on it for "preventative reasons. " I was ignorant of the facts back then... 10 years ago and feeling fine.. They ablated 12 places where the extra heartbeats were coming from... The procedure is nothing.

I had irregular heart beats, one cardiologist said it was PVC. Sometimes, my heart would beat so hard my body would shake was making me so uncomfortable and scared. The cardiologist said I could ignore it or take medication. I don't function that way so I looked deeper for the cause. Read about possible dental issues causing heart issues,

We hired a dentist that does dental cavitation surgery to open up every extraction site in my mouth. A study showed that 80% percent of these sites have toxins, in them . I also had my root canal extracted, due to my fears that they could be causing this issue. This is personal choice because I wanted to be well The cavitation dentist located a huge infection wisdom tooth extraction site he found gauze left behind from years back, and jaw bone infection, this infection did not show up on the MRI or digital x-rays, low level sepsis! I went on heavy duty antibiotics, after the surgery. Pounding heart, PVC , irregular heart beat whatever you want to call it was gone NO more Heart Problems

Elwyn, I was taking a beta blocker (Toprol) for my arrythmia, and wanted to stop taking it. I just gradually tapered it off myself, using a pill cutter (you can get one at pharmacy). My cardiologist wasn't pleased, but I am off of it and doing ok for over 6 months now. I did ask them afterwards to give me a Halter test, and all was ok. I think they would have kept me on it forever. You might want to figure out what lifestyle changes you should make to avoid the arrythmia; I learned a lot on this site about possible causes.

Heal Your Gut  

Posted by Waleed (New York ) on 05/17/2016

Dear all,

There is an undeniable relation between the gut/digestion issues and Arrhythmia (irregular heart beats, PVCs)

It has taken me two years to identify, research and educate myself on this connection. Look into "Roemheld Syndrome" first discovered by a German scientist while studying caloric intake on the digestive system. RS explains the Gastric Cardiac effect of stomach gas, acid reflux, and dysbiosis in irritating the Vagus nerve and how that triggers our irregular heart beats among causing other life bothersome side effects, like chest pain, dizziness and vertigo. It usually begins with a case of post infection IBS, which I believe is related closely to SIBO/leaky gut syndrome. By the time you are experiencing RS, you must understand that your gut has been compromised and mostly your vagus nerve as well, which in turn leaves your Autonomic nervous system in jeopardy as well.

This is one of the most under diagnosed and controversial syndromes in the world today, doctors do not want to admit the relation of the gut on the heart even though all the science is there to prove it.

This is a serious condition to say the least. I have struggled with this for two years and eventually it lead to severe Dysautonomia (POTS) recently as well as diminished adrenal function, where I have been extremely dizzy when standing up, fast irregular heart beat and overall fatigue.

Every case is different of course, I am still trying to heal myself so I am not able to mention any remedies so far except

HEAL YOUR GUT, find out your food sensitivities and eliminate them, eat small meals, trying a low fodmap diet (creates no gas) starve SIBO, burp when you can, Zinc Carnosine and D-Limonene might help but I am still not fully recovered, will stay in touch with more news.

Note to EC: please do more research on this topic, it may help many people.

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 .

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.

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.)

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!

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.

I just started with irregular heart beats (last 3 weeks), pounding, then skipping. I am 69 yrs old. It starts and I feel faint, short of breath, weak, overall just bad. At my worst, I was on my way to the emergency room, but couldn't find the hospital, so went on to the health food store and bought magnesium with potassium aspartate, took 3 and felt better in about 10 minutes. I am now taking 3 (300mg) 3x/day with meals and I feel like my old self! Until I found this website I didn't know about the other things I could try, but will give it a go to improve my heart health.

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
