How does one safely withdraw from a time-release calcium channel blocker? I want to take only herbal or other natural remedies for my arrthymia.

Arrhythmia - I used to have lower heart rate but I found natural remedies from the guava leaves which this plants grows abundantly in our place. I picked 8 pieces of young guava leaves and chewed it then juices was taken then a matter of minute my heart beats returns to normal.
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.

Subconscious healing through suggestion and visualization.
Hi, I am an 82 year old electrical engineer working at a US Radar site on the Kwajalein Atoll. I have experienced heart irregularities for over 10 years. At first I had occasional instances of rapid beating which I was able to stop by coughing. At that time I had a few skipped beats, but not bad. In the last couple of years my rapid beating has subsided but the skipped beats become more prevalent especially when working out in the gym to the point where during August of 2016 my heart at times would beat very strongly every other time getting down into the mid to high 30s per minute.
Also last June I had bouts of heavy bleeding in my urine. I underwent an MRI to diagnose the bleeding problem which revealed a severely enlarged prostate and a 4.3 cm ascending aortic aneurism. The urologist went in and cauterized the bleeders in the OR.
Being rather isolated out here I wanted something that would help me right now rather than waiting three weeks for an order of Taurine to arrive in the mail. So, having read about how the subconscious can heal the body, I started whispering to myself over and over “KEEP MY HEART RATE EVEN” during my 2 mile walk each morning and any time I rode my bicycle or walked shorter distances. At the same time I wanted to do something about the aneurism and prostate, so I began thinking “SHRINK MY ANEURISM AND PROSTATE”. It took several days to perfect whispering and thinking two different phrases but I found I could do it. I also try to visualize all the arteries healed and my prostate shrunk to normal size.
After 2 ½ months my heart rate has stabilized with only a few skips especially during workout. I am continuing with the two phrase healing and decided not to order the Taurine.
I hope this helps others.
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.

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!!
HI U OLE PATTOTS, ORH here, have learned how to address my vagus nerve when my heart is in trouble. I now know to put an ice pack on my face and right neck. Have no clue why this works, but it does. I am also doing the restricted blood flow program and it is working. I think I am now eligible for the EECP program which will prolong my life for certain. This is a deal where a system pushes your blood through your heart as if you were in a work out. Don't get old.
I was having bad palpitations that lasted all day. I took everything from magnesium, taurine, Q10, electrolytes, hawthorn, and the list goes on.. Nothing stopped them except for Iodine.
Try kelp or dulse for iodine. An irregular heartbeat can be a symptom of hypothyroidism. Taking kelp straightened out my Irregular heartbeat.
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 have to report my experience here because it's nothing short of miraculous. I have been having a LOT of palpitations. Way more than usual. Being anxious already, it really worries me. I went to buy a whole food magnesium supplement today and I took two (368 mg for 4) and almost immediately, I didn't have any more palpitations. I am also drinking ACV but the palpitations were almost immediately resolved after taking the first two magnesium. Just so grateful to have come here finding a wealth of information! Thank you!!!
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.
A magnesium complex containing magnesium oxide, magnesium citrate and magnesium aspartate cured my heart palpitations and arrythmias. I take one 400 mg capsule every day at bedtime. I am so thankful for this website.
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?

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 too cut down on my evening wine (now 1x/wk) and have decaf 1 cup in the morning. It has made such a difference I can't tell you!
