Tachycardia or Rapid Heart Beat

Dr. Carolyn Chambers Clark, ARNP, EdD

Tachycardia or rapid/racing heart beats are often accompanied by heart burn and belching and fatigue. Some of these symptoms are related to the heart and some to the stomach.

How can that be? The answer is, the vagus nerve activates both the stomach and the heart and irritation of that nerve can result in abornoaml function of both of these body organs simultaneously.

How can you tell?

See what happens after you drink ice water or eat something. Is there a change in your heartbeat for the better or worse? What about your fatigue? Your belching? Your heartburn?

Drinking a glass of ice water or a glass of room temperature water with a teaspoon of sea salt or a glass of room temperature water or milk with a pinch of cayenne pepper has also been reported to help. Cayenne pepper, the spice you can get at the grocery store has been reported to work, but it might be safer to get liquid cayenne at your health food store. Never mix cayenne pepper with aspirin because they're both blood thinners.

It could also be that rapid heart rate is a method your body uses when you're not drinking enough water, which leads to thicker blood. Dehydration can cause rapid heart beat/tachycardia.

As well as thinning blood, water by itself can also reduce pain and fatigue, so be sure to drink at least 8-10 glasses a day just to maintain your body systems and more if you are sweating or exercising.

The American Heart Association recommends taking a deep breath, coughing, or bearing down to stop a racing heart. For weakness and difficulty breathing, be sure to consult your health care practitioner right away.

Minerals, such as potassium and magnesium could also be involved because they help keep the heart beating in a normal way. You may not be receiving sufficient amounts of these minerals by eating leafy green vegetables, nuts, dairy, soybeans, potatoes, whole wheat, potatoes, bananas,or quinoa.  

For more information on potassium and heart beat, click on http://www.carolynchambersclark.com/id208.html

Colloidal minerals have been suggested because they contain all minerals in a balanced, plant-derived form.

It is imperative to check what you're ingesting and stop taking any drinks or medications that contain cafeeine or phenylephrine hydrochloride, both of which stimulate the heart to beat faster ccording to The Mayo Clinic.

Also check what you're putting into your body. Energy Drinks are often laden with artificial sugars that can affect heart rate, as are other foods and drinks. Read the labels of whatever you're ingesting. Aim for organic sources.

Anxiety or worry, tension or lack of sleep can also up heart rate. Be sure to learn some tension-release methods: listen to relaxation tapes (but not while driving), take slow even breaths and breathe from your abdomen not your upper chest, picturing yourself relaxed and with a normal heart rate, hypnosis, etc., and see my article on sleep if you aren't getting at least 7 hours of sleep every night. Remember, sleep is when your body repairs itslef. Without sleep, your body can't repair itself.
