Heart palpitations are a pretty normal occurrence, and they don't necessarily mean that you have a problem with your heart. There are many different things that can cause these to happen, and I am going to list a few of the things that can and some of the things that you can do to prevent this from happening in the future.
Nutritional deficiencies- Electrolytes in your body-particularly potassium, calcium, and magnesium-keep the electrical signals in your heart firing regularly. An imbalance can cause irregular beats and simple supplementation may correct them.
Caffeine, tobacco and alcohol-Too much stimulation from ingested chemicals may affect your heart. If you have recurring palpitations, you may find that reducing or perhaps eliminating one or more of these stimulants will solve the problem.
Medications- Many prescription and over-the-counter drugs can cause heart palpitations, particularly cold medications which contain pseudoephedrine. It's a good idea for anyone to avoid these. Opt for natural and homeopathic remedies when you have a cold.
Stress-If you do not handle stress well, palpitations may be your body's way of responding. Identify your stressors and learn how to deal with them. Simplify your life, try yoga or meditation, listen to music, and practice deep breathing. Even adding moderate exercise to your routine can relieve stress. Do what works for you.
Prevent Heart Palpitations and Anxiety
The first thing that you do is to research and figure out what is causing your heart palpitations & anxiety. When you study anxiety it automatically gets less scary. Once you understand everything that is going on in both your mind and body they become less mysterious... simply understanding anxiety helps you conquer it by demystifying it.
Many people get PVC's from a lack of sleep. When you get an insufficient amount of sleep your mind in your body experience an increase in stress and anxiety. If you stay up throughout the night worrying about things that you have no control over... your very likely to experience heart palpitations & anxiety when you wake up.
You have to learn how to relax a little bit. If you're someone that comes to worry a lot you are very susceptible to anxiety. People like this tend to get into a vicious cycle of anxiety. One little thing tends to set them off and there thoughts start to spiral out of control. They then start thinking about other uncontrollable things and becoming more and more anxious.
Catnip: It is another important and useful herb, belongs to mint family and thus obviously has the ability to calm the patient down. It also has a sedative effect, so do not be surprised if you will feel sleepy. Another thing, catnip relaxes the muscles.
Kava kava: It soothes unpleasant symptoms of anxiety without disrupting mental clearness and is really very helpful. However, better be careful with kava kava; use it three times in a week, otherwise it may affect liver. That is why I do not recommend this herb for teenagers or children.
Siberian Ginseng: You can also try this herb. It is one of the popular ingredients of Chinese medicine. Siberian ginseng helps to palliate anxiety and stress. Also, because of it you can control emotions better, concentrate and fall asleep easier.
Passion flower: Try this herb too; it should help you as it has benzodiazepines, which is an effective thing while curing anxiety. Patient will feel better and not that nervous or worried.
