When I get problems with heart, I take taurine, cayenne, magnesium citrate, ACV, and potassium, hawthorn. Also yoga is very helpful. Also COQ-10.
I have been through hell with arrrythmias!!! I believe that there are 4 or 5 root causes:
1. MSG: Taurine is an antidote for this. Best to avoid it, but it's hard. Many people get heart issues from msg I think! It's in a lot of food!
2. Thyroid: for me one drop of potassium iodide in a little water in the morning helped.
3. An irritated vagus nerve:/ colitis: 3 tablespoons of organic olive oil worked for me.
4. Vitamin deficiencies like b12, iron magnesium, etc. In desperation, I got a spectracell micronutrient test. (Google it) Was deficient in pantothenic acid!
If I avoid msg, take taurine if I've had MSG, take 3 tablespoons of olive oil every day and one drop of potassium iodide, and pantothenic acid, I'm good! It took me 40 years to get the right protocol. No help from modern medicine worked in the long run.
Hope this helps someone!
Beyond ACV, cayenne, and magnesium...
I have had severe and intense arrhythmia for a few years now, all starting when I entered the menopausal change. It is quite common for many women to develop heart symptoms of all sorts. Well, I totally rejected the offered beta blockers (M.D.'s solution), and started looking to the wonderful and healing world of herbalism. Several cardiac tonics are available that work fast and immensely reliably. Motherwort would be the star of them all. In tincture form (as an infusion far too bitter! ) it can be taken everywhere and used in a 'heartbeat' if needed. 15 to 30 drops in a little water, one or a few times a day. Motherwort has many more benefits to women of ALL ages. I am a witness to its reliability and complete safety. For all women out there who are also experiencing their menopausal years, I HIGHLY recommend reading Susun Weed's book, Menopausal years The Wise Woman Way.
With the information and wisdom in this book I have approached even my N.D.s, and told THEM what I needed. Also, including very nourishing and with minerals loaded stinging nettle infusion (this is not a weak casual tea but a highly medicinal infusion of herb) supports the function of the heart (and the entire body), without dishing out a fortune for supplements. I do, however, supplement with RnA Remyte and ReMag on most days of the week. I determine the correct dosage for me each time I use it, with the help of my pendulum, as the daily needs vary. That saves a lot of money when you need exactly when and how much or little you actually need, as opposed to blindly following a protocol that is geared to the broad masses (yes, naturopaths usually work the same way as M.D.s, prescribing not what the individual needs, but what a certain protocol demands).
So, motherwort (leonorus cardiaca), nettle infusion (urtica dioica, see Susun Weed's books), ReMag and ReMyte, NOT skipping meat as it contains heme (there is not a single plant on this planet containing it), important for red blood cell formation and support of too many functions in the body to mention, but mostly iron supply.
I also learned that low ferritin levels (iron storage, NOT serum levels) can contribute or even cause heart arrhythmia. However, all that being said, we must remember that the heart is much, much more than a physical organ, and a vast variety of emotional issues or imbalances (anger, fear...) regularly trigger arrhythmia (I had a horrifying experience at one dentist where I considered not making it out alive there anymore; I went through 2,5 hours non stop intensely irregular heartbeat, did all I could and took my tinctures, did pranayama, had essential oils with me (ylang ylang, spikenard, lavender, marjoram, vetiver... just a few for arrhythmia), and absolutely nothing helped the situation. I prayed in the chair (mentally), I started crying, was very upset about the complete lack of compassion nor understanding from the dentist (he should never be let loose on the public), and realized that fear alone (in this case of the man himself as his energies were very dense and low) was the trigger that time.
The reality is, with heart arrhythmia there is no single cause, so it makes sense, to approach the 'problem' from more than one angle. I also do regular Dead Sea salt baths (26 oz per full bath).
As far as ACV goes, I find it way too acidic to take orally, even when diluted, and it has the potential to destroy tooth enamel. Not worth it to me. From an energetic perspective, in support of the heart there are a variety of crystals to use, such as red jasper, green aventurine, emerald, just to name a few. Working with crystals, however, is also a rather intuitive undertaking, and requires some understanding of the crystals themselves, how to use them, for how long, etc. The latest thing I incorporated to get the arrhythmia under control was/is homeopathy. I found an amazing doctor who practices traditional homeopathy (as opposed to those who use it more casually with little understanding of the matter). Great success thus far!!!!!
I am very certain that there are a myriad more solutions out in this world for arrhythmia, many of which the western world has never thought of perhaps. There are also insanely great ways from various types of energy medicine available. It all depends on the individual response of the person to any particular treatment (Acupuncture did absolutely nothing for me). I feel it is important to approach the matter in a holistic way as possible, physical, emotional, and working through the various layers of the energetic body. There is an amazing book out there, that everyone should have on their shelf: THE HEART SPEAKS by Mimi Guarneri, M.D., FACC. I hope I could provide the reader with more solutions than the three mentioned in the headline. Be well:)
