Heart Palpitations: Causes and Treatment
Heart palpitations causes
of heart palpitations relate to 3
- electrical potential of the human body
- heart oxygenation
- CO2 levels in the heart tissue.
When the human body is electrically insulated from the Earth (as in more than
95% of modern people), the body usually accumulates a large positive charge.
This negatively influences work of the part of the heart muscle (the sinoatrial
node) that stimulates the heart muscle and regulates its contractions. In
addition, a recent clinical study discovered, according to its title, that "Earthing
(grounding) the human body reduces blood viscosity – a major factor in
cardiovascular disease" (Chevalier et al, 2012).
Apart from a lack of grounding, modern people have reduced CO2 and O2
levels in the heart muscle due to their heavy (deep) breathing at rest.
people breathe twice more than the medical norm (and almost 3 times more than
breathing of people living 100 years ago), humans have low CO2 levels in the
heart tissue. This makes nerve cells over-excited (see links related to CO2
Hyperventilation, apart from causing low CO2, also leads to the spasm of arteries and
arterioles (due to arterial hypocapnia) and reduced oxygen delivery to all vital
organs, the brain and heart included.
Since lowest body oxygenation (due to heaviest and fastest breathing) takes
place after meals and at night, it is obvious that most people suffer from
heart palpitations after meals and at
How to stop heart palpitations (even at night)
There are 2 main methods to prevent heart palpitations. Many people are able to
stop their heart palpitations using grounding of the human body (see
Earthing webpage for more details). Grounding
for sleep is an excellent remedy to stop heart palpitations at night. (Even a
simple transition into a sitting position at night can prevent this symptom.)
Those people who are deficient in calcium, can prevent or eliminate heart
palpitations with calcium supplementation. Taking 3-5 g of calcium per day
(and this is safe), in divided doses with meals, helps to define, if low
calcium is the cause of heart palpitations. For more info, see
Major Nutrients Guide.
Apart from Earthing, clinical observations by
about 200 Soviet and Russian doctors practicing the Buteyko breathing method
suggest that heart palpitations are a classic sign of hyperventilation. Heart
palpitations disappear with breathing normalization. Most people predisposed to heart palpitations require more than 25 s for the body-oxygen test in
order to be free from this symptom.
Application of resistive respiratory devices (such as the Frolov device, Samozdrav,
Amazing DIY breathing device, and many others) provide faster recovery rates
in comparison with the classical Buteyko method. You can also
stop heart palpitations with more
physical exercise with strictly nasal breathing and perspiration.
