Cardiac arrhythmia and treatment – the best natural remedies

Share on social networks 💚

Our heart is controlled by a very impressive system. At the top of the heart muscle, a signal is produced that travels down and because of it, the heart pulsates and constantly pumps blood.

With a healthy heart, 60 to 100 signals are generated per minute. For some reason, these numbers can be disturbed and there are abnormalities in the heartbeat, which in one word is called arrhythmia.

Although arrhythmia in most people is not dangerous and does not require therapy, the body after a series of warnings, if nothing is done, can be seriously endangered. Natural treatment of arrhythmia, with its unique methods, can improve the patient’s condition or act as prevention in maintaining the rhythm of the heart muscle. Depending on the problem, this type of treatment primarily changes your lifestyle, and also includes the use of numerous effective medicinal herbs.

In the text that follows, we will deal with cardiac arrhythmia and treatment and present the 5 best natural remedies.

Here are some quick links to what we’ll cover in this article. If you’re in hurry, or for any other reason, feel free to use the quick links to jump straight to the section you want to read:

What is cardiac arrhythmia?

If we translate literally, the word arrhythmia means “without rhythm”.

This health disorder occurs when electrical impulses, which are practically the main drivers of the heartbeat, do not work properly, which results in the heart muscle losing its normal rhythm. Then the person has a feeling of trembling in the chest or that the heart is beating very hard.

When the heart muscle does not work properly, the whole organism is endangered, and damage to the heart itself can occur. This disorder usually affects people over the age of 50, but it is also becoming more common in young people due to poor immunity.

Depending on the rhythm of the heartbeat, we divide the arrhythmia into several groups:

  • Bradycardia is a slowed heart rate.
  • Tachycardia is a rapid heartbeat.
  • Fibrillation or flatulence are irregular heartbeats.

In the case of turbulent blood flow in the atria, blood clotting occurs, so there is a risk of embolism. This means that the clot (thrombus) can disintegrate and together with the blood continue its way through the body all the way to the place where due to its size it cannot pass, so it stops the entire circulation.

The main causes of cardiac arrhythmia

With the normal functioning of the cardiovascular system, the heart can occasionally skip one or two beats, but quickly only return to its previous state.

With a heart arrhythmia, the heartbeat itself cannot be normalized, which can result in a fatal heart attack. The main causes of heart failure are excessive mental work, excessive physical activity, and recovery of the body after a severe illness.

Many medical conditions and diseases can lead to arrhythmias, including changes in heart structure, blocked arteries in the heart, high blood pressure, diabetes, thyroid disorders, stress, drug use, smoking, excessive coffee and alcohol consumption, certain dietary and herbal supplements treatments, as well as certain prescription drugs.

The main symptoms

Most people are not even aware that they have problems with arrhythmia, associating its symptoms mainly with chronic fatigue.

Only when more serious complications occur does it turn out that the problem is an irregular heartbeat.

In addition to the patient noticing that something is wrong with the heartbeat rhythm, signs such as mild headache, chest pain, possible dizziness and fainting, shortness of breath, or cold sweats may also occur.

Cardiac arrhythmia and treatment – 5 all-natural foods

1. Hawthorn is one of the safest and most effective herbs when it comes to treating diseases of the cardiovascular system, and that also applies to arrhythmia problems.

Medicinal parts of hawthorn are dark red berries, small white flowers, and leaves. Hawthorn strengthens the heart muscle and improves the flow of nutrients and oxygen through the bloodstream to every part of the body. It dilates the arteries that carry blood to the heart so that it also receives the necessary nutrients for normal work.

Hawthorn therapy should last at least three months to feel the effects.

2. Angelica is also known as angel root, and it got its name in the Middle Ages when it was used to treat vicious infectious diseases such as cholera and plague.

This medicinal plant contains as many as 14 compounds that quickly alleviate all the symptoms that accompany arrhythmia. Angelica also treats other cardiovascular diseases and disorders such as angina pectoris. Successfully lowers high blood pressure. It purifies the blood and improves circulation while expelling toxins through the patient’s skin.

Angelica roots, leaves, and seeds are used for healing.

3. Nettle is full of vitamins and minerals that protect the heart, and also regulate blood pumping and heart rate. The high concentration of vitamin C and iron is especially emphasized, due to which the production of red blood cells increases, and thus the transport of other nutrients and oxygen through the bloodstream is facilitated.

Vitamin C accelerates the absorption of iron, and iron is a crucial component of hemoglobin. The effect of relaxing blood vessels also contributes to healthy circulation.

Flavonoids in nettle, such as quercetin and kaempferol, lower blood pressure and prevent the development of dangerous cardiovascular diseases.

4. Hops is a well-known ingredient in beer, but it is also used in the treatment of disorders of the cardiovascular system. Hops can treat arrhythmia and improve circulation.

Cone hop flowers are used to treat abnormal heart rhythm. This plant is especially important for arrhythmia caused by stress. It also reduces the possibility of blood clots. It increases the level of good cholesterol and reduces bad cholesterol.

Hops contain beta-glucans, soluble fibers that also have a beneficial effect on the heart, but also blood vessels.

5. Asparagus is used in the diet as a vegetable, and many are not aware of how valuable asparagus is as a natural remedy. It protects your heart and blood vessels, and among other things, it successfully solves the problem of arrhythmia.

It can be taken in unlimited quantities, primarily due to its low caloric value and the absence of side effects on the patient’s body. Regular use of asparagus in treatment and nutrition will help you get rid of harmful substances from your bloodstream.

It cleanses the blood and enables unhindered transport of nutrients and oxygen to every tissue in the body.

Prevention is key

* Take care of your diet. Eat more fresh fruits and vegetables, foods that contain omega-3 fatty acids (fish, nuts), and foods rich in calcium (milk and dairy products).

*  Avoid fatty foods and stop eating nicotine, alcohol, coffee, black tea, green tea, and energy drinks.

*  Physical activity is also important. Exercise will reduce the level of bad cholesterol in the blood, regulate your blood pressure and improve the health of your heart and blood vessels in general.

*  It is recommended to set aside about 30 minutes a day for any physical activity, but be careful not to get too tired and not to exceed your own limits.

*  Avoid stressful situations. Stress can suddenly raise blood pressure levels and increase the tendency to form blood clots.

*  Relax and think positively to regulate the health of the cardiovascular system.

Check your blood pressure and blood cholesterol levels regularly. According to your doctor’s recommendations, measure your blood pressure periodically, and it would be great if you could get a home meter.

*  You will also receive instructions from the laboratory in order to detect a problem with cholesterol in time through a sample of your blood.

Don’t panic if your heart skips a beat sometimes

You may occasionally feel that your heart has “skipped one beat” or “one beat too many”, but that’s not a bad thing. Arrhythmia attacks may not be severe, but they are usually very unpleasant.

Pay attention if they start to recur and go to the doctor on time for an examination. He will determine if your condition needs to be treated in any way.

When someone has an arrhythmia, it does not mean that they need immediate treatment. Therapy is performed only if the arrhythmia increases the risk of more severe types of arrhythmias or to prevent potential complications.

Try the suggested natural remedies. We are sure that you will soon notice how your heart rate is slowly normalizing.

That’s it!
