Anyone who has suffered from PVCs and done any kind of research will discover thousands of sufferers claim a link between Acid Reflux and PVCs. Of course the medical community denies the possibility of this stating the only connection is that Reflux causes stress and stress causes PVCs.
My PVCs began hard and heavy during a stressful time of my life. Ironically, I was having acid reflux issues at the same time. I decided to take a course of Prevacid to counter the reflux and noticed that my PVCs began to improve. I just assumed the PVCs were winding down because the stress was. Be advised that I have "silent" Reflux, which means I don't usually experience symptoms even though I do have the reflux. I also don't take meds unless I have to.
So, as my Reflux felt better, I chose to stop the Prevacid. Shortly thereafter, the PVCs came back with a vengeance. So I began to experiment. I would start a round of antacids and then take a break for a while. Always on the breaks the PVCs became worse. Not wanting to take Prevacid the rest of my life, I started drinking baking soda every night before bed. This simple trick substantially improved my PVCs. Basically taking them from unbearable to manageable. I have done this for 2 years now.
Okay, recently I began taking ginger supplements. I noticed at that my PVCs were so rare, I felt normal again. I did not at the time make the connection with the ginger. However, about a week after I stopped the ginger, my PVCs started coming back. Again I bought more ginger and again noticed improvement within days.
I finally put everything together. I believe my PVCs are directly linked to my acid reflux. A trunkline nerve runs down your GI tract to the heart. It is called the vagus nerve. When your acid reflux acts up your GI tract becomes inflamed. It is my opinion that this inflammation aggravates the vagus nerve and thus leads the heart to misfire.
I do not believe I am cured of PVCs as they show up occasionally. However, God has given me my normal life back.
The protocol I use is as follows:
Baking Soda: 1/2 teaspoon mixed with 1 ounce of water at bedtime.
Ginger: 1100mg tablet daily.
I used ginger tea for irregular heart beat and it worked for me. Take fresh ginger1/2 inch piece.Thanks
I suffered skipping heart beats rapid heart rate, acid reflux and panic attacks for 15 years. Now all that is gone. I found out that Hawthorn will stop the irregular heart beat in minutes. Also found out the cause was poor digestion accompanied by stress. Apparently the intestines have some similar tissues to the heart. I thought perhaps my heart palps were due to food alergies because they seemed to come on strong after a meal. I am taking several enzymes to correct my digestion and the hawthorn. My heart now beats normal all the time in the low 60s at rest. Used to be in the mid to high 90s at rest. Ive not felt this good in years.

Try alcohol-free hawthorn extract and the lowest alcohol content motherwort extract, read the bottle for dosage, don't bother with water, take equal quantities, and I think it will promptly cure your palpitations.
Please look at my submission under Tachycardia, titled Motherworth and Hawthorn, to get my remedy for heart palpitations. This is fast heartbeat, a sudden rise to 150 beats per minute or more, even to the 200 beats per minute range. The remedy I found and have tested over years is very fast for me, and very reliable. My submission under Tachycardia, titled Motherwort and Hawthorn, gives details. I think the medical community should know about this but I think the pharmaceutical industry would find a way to make money off a chemical variation. The herbs themselves do a remarkable job.
Hi, The people can use these mudras for heart palpitation and thyroid disorder. You can see the results within 5 to 10 minutes. These mudras are really amazing. The link is:
Hi Ted, I'm in desperate need of your help. I've been having heart palpitations for the past 2 yrs. I've been to the doctor, cardiologist, ER and they done EKGs heart monitors and nothing comes out. I sometimes feel dizzy, nausea and sometimes end up vomiting. My episodes last a few hrs but during the time I'm afraid of dying. Please help me... I am very desperate. Also, according to my doctor my blood test shows everything is fine.

I've had heart palpitations off and on for as far back as I can remember. However, I noticed they've been much worse over the past few weeks. It started when I was PMSing and we went for a hike.
I was fine during but it was at the cool down period where I got the palpitations. Of course this sent me into a tizzy and I ended up having a few panic attacks. I went to the doc and he gave me atenolol and a water pill for my high BP, which was been high since I was pregnant. It seems to help as I haven't had them quite as much, but they still manage to creep in. I'm wondering if my hormones have anything to do with it. I'm also under stress having an autistic toddler. I'd just really like them to go away once and for all. It's always a good day when I haven't had them. I'm a 35 year old female.
Heart racing, fluttering, and irregular heartbeats:
My racing heart after years of the unknown cause is now clear…. First dehydration, second inflammation of the Vagus nerve, racing heart, all tied together. You get dehydrated, any injury that affects the Vagus nerve, including reflux, aggravates it. It controls heart rate, then all of a sudden racing heart (over 100) takes hold. It took me years to figure this out.
So, the treatment, immediately hydrate, get some electrolytes (since they are now out of whack), and start taking every 5 hours advil and add Turmeric for inflammation. Also, I added magnesium (in spray on form) or epsom salts work too. Your electrolytes need rebalancing also. You take the Advil til the inflammation in your Vagus nerve calms down, maybe be a week or two. I have a neck disc problem that is the culprit…and when dehydration affects your discs, they can inflame the Vagus nerve.
I have solved the problem, no more fear of high heart rate, all with the help of water, magnesium spray (on Amazon), turmeric, every 5 hours advil, and limit caffeine, add eletrolytes to rebalance. If you have reflux, you have a hiatal hernia most likely, push it down and take tums…..all of this works…finally, and no doctor helped…I am finally free of this symptom and if I forget or relapse, I repeat the above protocol.
A remedy my grandmother used to swear by was drinking a glass of ice water whenever she had heart palpitations. I tried it last night and it works. Yea Granny!!
I have a symptomatic Mitral Valve Prolapse with mitral regurgitation so palpitation is like a daily thing for me plus chest pains and fatigue. I learned about magnesium on the net and tried it right away and since then I no longer have palpitations and it also cured all the other MVP symptoms including insomnia. Just 400mg daily before bedtime. I've been taking it for 5 years now.
My friend had severe heart palpatations that had me driving him to the hostpital one time after he had sat there for 8 hours with an irregular heart beat! The hospital did what they knew to do but nothing worked for him and gave no really useful advice.
For another issue he started taking magnesium and a little zinc. He didn't really notice that he hadn't had a heart palpatation until one day he forgot to take the magnesium. His heart went irregular by about 2pm. He started to get worried.
He remembered he hadn't had his magnesium tablet and within a few minites of taking it the palpatations had completely stopped!
Reading other posts, I wonder if that's why molasses has worked for some people as it has a good supply of magnesium?

Magnesium for heart palpitations/panic attacks: I thank God for this site. I was having scary heart palpitations at night, and I knew it was panic attacks. The only course my doc offered was xanax, and as I was rushed through the visit there was no time to talk alternatives. I am not one of those people who thinks happiness is a pill away. I did my own research, and decided to try a magnesium supplement. The FIRST NIGHT I was heart palpitation-free. I can't believe doctors would rather throw a dangerous pill at you rather than discuss the effects of diet, exercise, and soda (caffeine&aspatame) on your body. Try Magnesium first, and make sure you are getting your potassium too!

Re: Heart Palpitations:
Take magnesium. Google: Dr. Carolyn Dean Magnesium and heart palpitations.
Take EFA's. Google: George Eby Heart Palpitations
Monitor your Omega 6 and Omega 3 Fatty Acid intake. The ration of 6 to 3 must be NO MORE THAN 4 to 1. Take a good EFA (Omega 3). Spend the money on a good one, to save your sanity and your heart. (See: selfnutritiondata.com for the ratios of Omega 6 to 3 in many foods. ) Good Luck to us all. Lucinda
I have been having heart palpitations for a few months now. I thought caffeine was causing them and cut it out of my diet completely. Didn't solve the issue. I also tried various magnesium supplements, which gave me diarrhea and didn't stop the palpitations. About a week ago I decided to try magnesium chloride which I had bought a few months ago at an aquarium supply store but never used. I made up a 50/50 magnesium oil solution by adding 1 cup of boiling water to 1 cup magnesium chloride crystals and stirring until the crystals dissolved. After the oil had cooled, I slathered about 3 tablespoons of the oil all over my chest and also on my right armpit. I then put on an oversized, button down shirt, leaving it wide open at the top so the magnesium oil wouldn't get soaked in the cloth, and waited about 15 minutes before washing it off. Only 5 minutes into the treatment, I felt my whole body relax and the tense feeling I had in my chest immediately dissipated.
I have been doing this treatment twice a day now for the past 5 days and have not had any more palpitations. I feel so much better now! Hope this helps someone.
