Wow! 5 Powerful Natural Remedies for Cardiac Arrhythmia...
Want to cure your cardiac arrhythmia or irregular heartbeat in a hurry and for good? Here's the top 5 home remedies you definitely MUST consider...
I regularly get heart palpitations and sometimes my heart races uncontrollably. It's very scary when this happens. I don't want to go on medication for this. Is there a natural way to treat an irregular heartbeat and/or fast heartbeat?
Heart palpitations or cardiac arrhythmia is actually a common problem with 1 in 4 Americans at risk of developing this problem during their lifetime.1
The occasional light flutter in the chest is most often nothing to be concerned about, however, some heart palpitations can be serious and should not be left untreated. Cardiac arrhythmia means your heart has an abnormal rhythm. This can cause it to beat either too fast or too slow or simply beat irregularly (skipping a beat). Some of the symptoms of an irregular heartbeat include...
- Palpitations (a fluttering feeling, skipped heartbeats or feeling like your heart is "racing away")
- Dizziness or light headiness
- Chest pain
- Rapid heartbeat or pounding in your chest
- Shortness of breath
- Fainting/passing out
- Anxiety/panic attacks
- Cardiac arrest in extreme cases
Thankfully, fixing cardiac arrhythmia (and fixing it for good) is not that difficult. All you need do is follow the recommendations listed below to-the-letter and you wont have to worry about this problem again (that's the honest truth)...
Natural Cure for Irregular Heartbeat #1... Magnesium:
Magnesium is the single most important nutrient for heart health. An estimated 300,000 cardiac deaths each year are attributed to a simple magnesium deficiency. This crucial nutrient is responsible for the health of the nerve cells, and these nerve cells are what control the electrical signals within the heart muscle. When the electrical signals go haywire, you get irregularities (irregular heartbeat).
So your first point of attack is to fix your magnesium deficiency (yes you will have a deficiency). Because of our modern day farming methods, our foods no longer contain any magnesium (or only minuscule amounts) so you MUST supplement. Start taking a magnesium supplement that's specifically designed for heart health and curing palpitations (such as this one
). For dosages, follow the recommendations listed on the bottle. Remember to always take magnesium with food for maximum absorption.
Natural Remedy for Cardiac Arrhythmia #2... Selenium & Iodine:
The trace minerals selenium and iodine are also crucial for heart health and treating palpitations. In fact, a selenium deficiency has been proven to cause cardiomyopathy. And cardiac specialist Dr Michael Donaldson says... "Iodine stabilizers the heart rhythm, lowers serum cholesterol, lowers blood pressure, and is known to make the blood thinner as well, judging by longer clotting times seen by clinicians. Iodine is not just good for the cardiovascular system, it is vital".
The problem, once again, is that our food crops and soils are now devoid of almost all minerals, including selenium and iodine. You can easily fix this by taking some supplemental selenium and iodine. The best way is with coral calcium. Coral calcium contains selenium and iodine in a natural and high absorbable form, along with lots of the other essential minerals and vitamins that are vital for heart health including calcium, potassium, vitamins A,B,C,D & E, copper, boron and magnesium. Here's the best brand of coral calcium on the market if you're interested... Barefoot Coral Calcium Complete
Home Remedy for Heart Palpitations #3... Himalayan Pink Rock Salt (Crystal Salt):
Contrary to popular medical belief, consuming the right type of salt will not damage your heart or give you high blood pressure. In fact, if you eat the right type of salt you'll actually strengthen your
heart and lower your blood pressure! Himalayan pink rock salt does exactly this. Pink crystal salt contains over 70 essential trace minerals in a highly absorbable form, including all of the minerals needed for heart health. And the best thing about Himalayan pink rock salt is it's cheap to buy and you can pretty much get it from any supermarket or health food store on the planet. To use, simply add it to your cooking and salt your food to taste with it!
Natural Treatment for Irregular Heartbeat #4... Apple Cider Vinegar (ACV):
Apple cider vinegar works a treat to keep the old ticker healthy. It not only helps to remove the toxins and chemicals that contribute to arrhythmia's, it helps to increase blood flow to the heart. ACV also contains the minerals that are necessary for heart health and for preventing an irregular heartbeat. To use simply mix 2 tablespoons of raw organic ACV
(with the "mother") in a glass of warm filtered water and drink down. You can also add a teaspoon of unsulphured black strap molasses (molasses is good for heart health) to the mix as well for extra benefit and taste.
Natural Cure for Cardiac Arrhythmia #5... Cayenne Pepper:
Cayenne pepper is instrumental for increasing blood flow throughout the body. Once blood flow is increased and becomes more regulated, the heart begins to function properly. Cayenne pepper is in fact so powerful for heart health and getting the heart back into a normal rhythm that it will even stop a heart attack in one minute! All you do is mix in a teaspoon of cayenne pepper to a glass of warm water and get the sufferer to scull (chug) it down. They'll soon find their pain and heart attack diminishing significantly within a minute or two. This also works for angina sufferers.
So getting back to using cayenne pepper for an irregular heartbeat... you do exactly the same thing. If your heartbeat is slow or fast or skipping a beat, mix a teaspoon of cayenne pepper in a glass of warm to hot-ish water and chug it down. Yes the cayenne pepper will be hot, but I guarantee it will fix your arrhythmia as quick as a flash!
Other Treatments and Home Remedies for an Irregular Heartbeat...
Use the Vagal Manoeuvre: This involves a forceful and sustained period of coughing. If that doesn't work stick your fingers down your throat and make yourself gag. Gagging stimulates the vagus nerve.
Eat Healthy: This one speaks for itself really. Most people who suffer with irregular heartbeats have underlying health problems such as high blood pressure, high cholesterol and heart disease so following a healthy eating plan is paramount.
Go Easy on the Caffeine: Too much caffeine can cause heart palpitations and cause the heart to race. If you need to have your caffeine boost every day, go with green tea as this is lower in caffeine than coffee or black tea (and green tea contains lots of heart healthy antioxidants).
Do Some Regular Exercise: Exercise is good for the heart as well as warding off diseases such as cancer and diabetes. 30-40 minutes of regular exercise 4-5 times a week is all you need. And it doesn't matter what you do. Just make sure you get "huffy and puffy".
Stop Smoking: This one speaks for itself.
Go Easy on the Booze: Several studies have found that heavy drinking increases the risk of sudden cardiac death resulting from arrhythmia's.
Reduce Stress: Stress puts your heart under unnecessary pressure. The saying is definitely true... stress kills!
So there you go. Hopefully these tips and remedies help you out.
Good luck and all the best to you!
