Cardiac arrhythmia is the diagnosis physicians give to patients with an irregular heart rate or rhythm. Symptoms vary, but the most common complaint, is fatigue. People with heart irregularities are just SO tired! Their heart is not pumping right. It's not able to get the blood with nutrients and oxygen to the cells. Cells are the body's building blocks.
Typically the FIRST line of medical treatment is with prescriptions, such as a beta blocker.
A beta blocker "blocks".
What does it block? Normal stimulus responses of the body. It depresses your hearts normal pacemaker to slow it, and keep it from irregularity.
Some of the more common drugs are: Brevibloc (esmolol), Coreg (carvedilol), Inderal (propranolol), Lopressor (metoprolol), Sectral (acebutolol) **THAT ONE SOUNDS LIKE LIGHTER FLUID!, Tenormin (atenolol), Normodyne (labetalol), and Zebeta (bisoprolol)
If you or someone you know is on these, you also know that beta blocker side effects are many. One of the worst, is that it doesn't work!
Why? It could be that the drug(s) don't address the cause. Why in the world would your heart beat change? Alright, follow me here...
Your body is intelligent. It will heal a cut, even if you don't do anything for it (unless you have a chronic disease that doesn't allow for healing). Here's something else, your body will prioritize it's needs. The brain, lungs, and heart have top billing. You can live without your bones and kidneys right? So, what happens?
If your heart needs calcium, your body will take it from the bone. That's just one example. Your body is constantly shifting in order to maintain balance, but if there's too much need, it will sacrifice areas to maintain it's top priorities.
I hope that makes sense to you. Here's the good part. You have complete control!
How? Through nutrition.
What about heart healthy eating? Nutrition data is confusing at best. Unfortunately, the medical community has been telling us for years to eat a low fat diet for heart health. Well, the number one cause of death is now cardiac! When people went to low fat, they went ALL the way! Good fats are now found to be necessary for your body's heart health.
Let's learn something here. You are NOT getting the nutrition your body needs to heal if you're eating junk food, or even foods commonly bought at the grocery store.
Your heart, and the rest of your body, needs REAL nutrition. Eating organic foods that are minimally processed and supplementing with quality vitamins and minerals are the key to heart health.
Cardiac arrhythmia can be traced to a nutritional deficiency. Whether its calcium, magnesium, or good fats...the cause can be addressed and restored.
How do you know what to do? Start, to change your health story, with nutrition. See what happens. Your body will respond. When you've been chronically ill, there's a lot of healing for your body to do. But, with today's technology, it can do so much more quickly when given the right nutrition.

Cardiac arrhythmia is diagnosed by the medical doctor by listening to your complaints, listening to your heart, doing an ECG (EKG), and running lab tests. Ask your doctor for your lab tests. Did he run a ionized calcium and an ionized magnesium? Did he replace your nutrition through an IV line? That's cellular nutrition!
Now, let's get more educated. It's important to BALANCE your body's nutrition. Otherwise, your body will continue to do it's own thing. Adding one or two nutrients, like calcium and magnesium, without having the other vitamins and minerals, is like climbing a ladder without all the rungs.
