Just finished my second "normal" period thanks to BSM. Fairly certain that any fibroids are reducing in size as the pressure I've been feeling in a couple of places is now much less... but still there somewhat. Plus, 99% reduction in heart palpatations - and they were bad ones, very scarey.

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.

I have had palpitations for about 6 or 7 years now. During my pregnancy I had several tachycardic episodes where my heart would race for 2 or 3 minutes then stop. I have been trying everything I have read about on this site (BSM, pedialyte, mag/pot, B50, CoQ10, iodine, fish oil) and the palpitations continue. How long do these "remedies" take to work? I also wonder...does anyone feel like this could be a hormonal thing vs. a low in this vitamin or that vitamin? (Palps are 10x's worse before that time of the month) I am truly at my wits end with this stuff. Just want something to work for me. Hate feeling anxious about this :(

Hi To everyone, I do understand how hard is dealing with this I had taquicardia couple years ago and from there everytime I fell my heart running I get so scaried about what is going to happend to me. I did pass for the same of you guys lot of doctors and test and they keep saying my heart is in an excellent condition and need exercise. What I can say 100% sure lot of times this symptoms coming from anxiety or stomach. My stomach is so sensible I can't spice food, caffeine, nothing so acid, and a banana a day is so helpfull for me. Coffee dicaf and tea dicaf, 0 strees Life is so beautifull to live everyday dealing with problems, in every bad thing is always something positive try to think in this way!!! Helps me a lot.
Also when I start feeling my stomach funny I take a teaspoon with baking powder in a cup of water and works so good. Everybody is different wish we can have an answer that can fix everyone problems but I believe if you start study your own body and all reactions to what you eat everyday and take less problems will be an excellent solution.
Hope this can help someone!!! Take care and remember in every bad thing is always something positive!!!

IN 1985 I HAVE MY FIRST PALPITATIONS. I WENT TO THE EMERCENCY ROOM AND THE DOCTOR KIND OF BRUSHED IT OFF AND THAT WAS THAT, IT WENT AWAY. IN 1986 WHILE DRIVING MY CAR IT HAPPENED AGAIN AT WHICH TIME I TOOK MY CIGARETTES AND TOSSED THEM OUT THE WINDOW DONE FOREVER. THE PALPITAIONS CAME ON AT CERTAIN TIMES THEN WENT AWAY AND I THOUGHT LITTLE OF THEM. IN 1995 THEY GOT WORSE AND I HAD A MONITOR PLACED ON ME AND THE DOCTOR WAS NO HELP.IN 1996 I GOT THEM REAL BAD AND WENT TO THE HOSPITAL AND BECAUSE I HAD INSURANCE I WAS HOSPITALIZED WITH WIRES GOING TO THE NURSE STATION. I WAS RELEASED BUT WITH NO INFORMATION OTHER THAN SOME DANGEROUS MEDICATION WHICH I LATER FOUND OUT WAS VERY BAD. I HAVE SINCE FOUND THERE IS LITTLE THAT THE MODERN MEDICAL INDUSTY CAN DO OTHER THAN TAKE YOUR MONEY AND FEED YOU DANGEROUS DRUGS.AFTER A COUPLE MORE TIMES IN THE HOSPITAL AND ALMOST HAVING A STROKE TWICE I HAVE REALIZED I AM THE MASTER OF MY BODY AND NEED TO DO SOMETHING ABOUT THIS BECAUSE THE MDS ARE CLUELESS. MY CONDITION NOW IS CHRONIC I HAVE PALPITAIONS ALL DAY EVERY DAY. I TAKE ACV,MASSES OF VITAMINS AND MINERALS,WAS TOLD THE ADRENALS CAN HAVE AN AFFECT SO I AM WORKING ON THE ADRENALS. MY NEXT STEP IS JUICE FASTING WITH MINERAL AND VITAMIN SUPPLEMENTS AS WELL AS A COLON CLEANSE, A LIVER CLEANSE, AND A KIDNEY CLEANSE. I SUSPECT THE ADRENAL CONNECTION, I ALSO SUSPECT POSSIBLY A PARASITE OR CANDIDA CONNECTION AND OVER ACID BODY.I AM GOING ON A TOTAL RAW FOOD DIET AND ELIMINATING EVERY THING CAN POSSIBLE BE A SOURCE OF THE PALPITATIONS. ALL THESE THINGS I AM WORKING ON IN AN ATTEMPT TO CORRECT THIS PROBLEM. TOO BAD OUR SO CALLED MEDICAL INDUSTRY IS SO CLUELESS AND EXPENSIVE.IT SEEMS THAT THE MEDICAL INDUSTRY CAN BE INCOMPETENT AS WELL AS PROFITABLE. I DID A HAIR SAMPLE MINERAL TEST AND FOUND I WAS HIGH IN ALUMINUM CADMIUM, AND OTHER DANGEROUS METALS THAT MAY BE AFFECTING THE ABSORBSION OF GOOD MINERALS. I WAS LOW IN CALCIUM, MAGNESIUM AND OTHER MINERALS EVEN THOUGH I SUPPLEMENT WITH QUALITY MINERALS. I NOW ALSO DO THE CHELATION TO RID MY BODY OF THE BAD METALS. I AM WORKING HARD ON THIS AND AM DETERMINED TO ADDRESS THE TRUE SOURCE OF THE PROBLEM.

I started getting heart palpitations every day for the last month or two. They are very scary. I was told to cough hard to get the heart back in rhythm. That worked for a second or two. I then took Black Strap Molasses (1 teaspoon) and a 1/2 hour later I drank water with 1 teaspoon of Apple Cider Vinegar. That combo usually stops the palpitations for 1/2 a day.
HOWEVER, I started OP (Oil Pulling) every morning on an empty stomach (1 teaspoon of either virgin olive oil or 1 teaspoon of sunflower oil) and since I've started, I've had no palpitations at all! It's amazing!
If you want to try this, please read up on it (on this website) first.

Dear Bill and friends,
I have had heart palpitations and cured them with Olive oil. I would drink a tablespoon or more before bed at night and they would not appear..my girlfriend took flaxseed oil for hers so I decided why not olive oil because flax tends to imbalance the hormones..but that works for me. Must warn though that taking too much Baking Soda can Burn out the kidneys so I rarely drink it anymore..xoxo

I was surprised to learn that yogurt may cause heart palpitations. However I know from my own experience that I would sometimes develop an irregular heart beat after eating this product. Orange juice or an orange can help reduce my heart palpitations along with calcium and magnesium supplements. Other people have also told me that an orange or the juice works for them as well. I've not tried the apple cider vinegar but will do so to see if it may work for me. I've had nuclear stress testing and apparently do not have coronary artery blockage thus far. I have learned through personal experience that high blood pressure meds (once took mycardis) may cause heart palpitations even after a year or more of use.

I want to start off by saying Happy New Year & May God bless you, your off springs and your families with perfect health and long lives!!!
My Heart Palpitations started in early 2013 when my general physician gave me Claritin-D to open up my eustachian tubes he thought had blocked up causing water to get stuck in there make Tinnitus. That Claritin-D started giving me racing heart.....i started feeling my pulses in my throat...... Then once in a while my heart would skip a beat.**BOOOOM** that right there creates anxiety, panic attack and cold hands & feet like you have just seen a ghost or just avoided a bad bad accident.
This also creates a hurricane of all those negative thoughts like possible heart attack ??heart failure?? cardiac arrest??blocked value?? cholesterol?? hospital bed!!! Painful death!!! & what not.
I'm 34, Diabetic due to obesity. Married for 6 years, just bought a house. You can imagine the barrage of negative thoughts like...what if.............
I did some googling and turns out low potassium helps but why am I losing potassium??? Did claritin-d caused this?
Potassium helps but next day my heart starts racing during breakfast and don't calm down till I take potassium and even after that I feel like its lurking somewhere inside...the palpitation is alive and not dead.
There was a time when I had to stop drinking water to stop losing potassium...that also helped palpitations...
Homeopathic remedy called Thuja Occidentalis in 30 potency me for a month but for some reason they came back again.....
I sometimes feel chest tightness but I guess that's due to anxiety and that barrage of negative thoughts that come after one heart flutter.....
What do I do? I hope it gets fixed.There have been some bad people and events I had to deal with in my life that caused me a great deal of stress.
Someone plz advise!!!!

I have read in several different places Ted's recommendations for taking potassium citrate and magnesium citrate for a variety of problems. The latest was a cure/prevention for heart palpitations. I've suffered from heart palpitations (HP) for 10 years. The severity of the palpitations has varied over the years but lately, for some reason, they had become extremely troublesome.
This problem runs on my mother's side of the family and I know my mother and her sister's solution has been to take prescription drugs, regardless of their serious side effects. The Rx approach has never worked for me so I am always looking for alternative remedies. I had used hawthorn to treat my heart issue and avoiding sugar and alcohol are also important. But lately nothing was working. I have taken CoQ10 in the past, but it is very expensive and difficult to take continuously because of the price.
Finally, I came back to earthclinic to do some further research and read where Ted said he had treated a woman with HP using potassium and magnesium citrates to replace electrolytes. I had already searched for these products from my supplement companies I use and could not find them and was wondering how to replace my electrolytes without drinking the sugary sports drinks that claim to replace electrolytes. I found the solution at a local pharmacy this week where I had gone to purchase iodine (another home remedy suggested here). I happened upon a $4 bottle of generic brand pediatric electrolyte solution used for preventing dehydration. The ingredients include: water, dextrose, citric acid, potassium citrate, sodium chloride, sodium citrate and benzoic acid. It's the closest product I could find to Ted's recipe. I figured I would give it a shot.
The result has been very positive. My HP almost immediately ceased upon taking the first dose. I've only had a few mild palpitations since I began taking the product 3 days ago. Even though I had several (mildly sweet) desserts during the Thanksgiving holiday (and two beers) I did not have the normal reaction of terrible HP that I could have previously expected before taking the electrolyte solution.
I know the best remedy is to avoid sugar and alcohol all together. And while I closely monitor my intake of those items it's not realistic for me to give them up completely. I will always want to enjoy a dessert on occasion and a beer once in a while.
I do hope the electrolyte solution continues to work for me. The taste is not unpleasant and is of citrus. It seems like there is only enough dextrose to make it palatable. There were two bottles to choose from, one was clear and the other was colored orange and contained acesulfame potassium, an artificial sweetener I try to avoid. I chose the clear product.
I hope this information helps someone else. And thanks to Ted for the suggestion on an electrolyte cure for HP!

I had heart palpitations that increased greatly this year, and I found that taking simple Potassium Gluconate 595 mg, of the kind sold in common grocery or health stores, decreased them significantly. So, passing it along.

WarningAlthough many of you believe you have been cured of angina by taking garlic and flaxseed, I am afraid that is is not true and you are in a dangerous situation. These supplements are very useful and strong if used correctly...as prevention. However, they cannot unclog arteries. Please be good to yourself and reasonable. Use all available treatments and advice together! There are plenty of wonderful cardiologists who have a holistic approach.

I am 50 and have been experiencing missing heart beats, mostly in the early morning and late at night. It makes me cough and it's frustrating. The solution stemmed from an emergency visit 20 years ago. I remember the Dr giving me a bag of Magnesium via IV. I'm sure it cost a bundle. Fast forward to now: I was just experiencing a bout of skipping beats at 3 am.
I ate a half cup of roasted pumpkin seeds (one of the best food sources of Magnesium). Within minutes of the first swallow, the missing beats went away! I chewed as much as possible, then spit out the shells that I couldn't swallow. I thank God for providing natural & safe remedies. Going back to sleep now!

I have researched heart palpitations, and I believe the underlying cause may be infection of some sort either it : viral, parasites, bacterial, dental, sinus, ear, food allergies, environmental allergies, heavy metals, and candida overgrowth. The most accurate test for candida is a stool test . I saw a few cardiologist they offered some funny band-aid solutions. I had a vitamin deficiency and sinus issue.
I got checked for vitamin deficiencies/ micronutrient was sure to include B12 and iron levels. My research showed vitamins that help the heart are Magnesium. CQ10, Ribos, Taurine, work synergistically . Garlic and Omega 3 helps. I also think investing in low EMF sauna and increasing the body temperature helped me tremendously by increasing the body voltage.

Randall, my husband was diagnosed with the exact same thing as you, mitral valve prolapse. He was experiencing the same symptoms as you. It was hard for him, as he is a handsome, tall, athletic man who was not used to being held back by physical ailment. Dr. wanted to put him on beta blockers. NEVER go on beta blockers.
I began corresponding with a Dr. via email who wrote a few books. He put my husband on this protocol: morning - 300 mg. Magnesium, 500 to 1000 mg. Sodium ascorbate (vit. C), 500 mg. L-carnitine, 200 mcg. Selenium, 500 mg. IP-6, 100 mg. Co-q-10, 800 mcg (or mg. , however they measure it) of d-3, 100 mg. K-2, 100 mg. Quercetin. We get all capsules or powder, except for the d-3 and co-q-10, which are tiny enough for him to swallow, and I put it in a small cup, mix with about an oz of orange juice, and he drinks it up. With the exception of the selenium, repeat in evening, right before bed. Sounds like a lot, but do it. His heart palps stopped in their tracks. If he gets careless and adds a lot of sugar and a beer or two to his diet, it will recur. Palps stopped within a 2 week period or so. Keep up the regimen daily, if you want your life back.
If you feel one coming on during the day, take some magnesium powder in o.j. , maybe 500 mg. or so. It calms them right down. Also, fill pot or bucket with ice water, dunk your face into it, and rub it on your arms and wrists. This will stop palps in their tracks. As far as the motherwort and hawthorn, I ordered both thru vitacost. com, and they are coming in the mail any day, to keep on hand for emergencies. You can get your life back, it just takes diligence. Oh, yeah, above all; prayer is the ultimate healer. Ask God for his help. He has guided us through this. God is so good!
