Even If The PVCs Are Benign They Are A Hard Traveled Road

This information below was complied from several different web sites to bring the whole condition of throwing PVCs into perspective. Anybody with or without a heart condition can get these PVCs young and old. Most are harmless but if they make up long strings of your heart rhythm PVCs can be harmful.

Ectopic Heartbeats

What is ectopic heartbeats? In short, it is extra or skipped heartbeats commonly called Palpitations or throwing PVCs. It can also be explained as a heartbeat that is in the “wrong place”. That means, too early in the heart rhythm cycle.

This ectopic heartbeat vagus nerve palpitations “thing” can be a scary unknown monster! The doctor says you are in rhythm, you can feel your own pulse and it’s in rhythm, but then you get these HARD and skipped beats!

An ectopic heartbeat can also be described as a Premature atrial contraction (PAC) or a premature ventricular contraction (PVC). Abnormal heartbeat, PVB(premature ventricular beat), Extrasystole, Premature supraventricular contractions, PAC, Premature atrial contraction.

Is treatment of ectopic heartbeats critical? In most cases NO and symptoms will resolve themselves over time. This will however not curb the anxiety that most of us experience when we get that awful ectopic attacks. So! they may not be harmful in most cases but seek medical advice in the following situations:

* If the condition persists for a long time.

* If you experience chest pain and pressure.

* Sustained rapid heart rate.

* Other symptoms with the ectopic heartbeats.

It is the tenth cranial nerve and interacts with the parasympathetic control of the heart, lungs and digestive system. It is the longest nerve of the autonomic nervous system and was previously known as the pneumogastric nerve. One of the tasks of the vagus nerve is to mediate the lowering of the heart rate
With all types of treatment, there is stuff you can add to your lifestyle and stuff you can take out off your life. Here are 10 tips to relieve or stop your ectopic heartbeats.

Simple breathing exercise. A study showed that by slowing down patients breathing the ectopic heartbeats were reduced notably. In the study, patients were instructed to slow down their breaths from about 15 breaths per minutes to about 6 breaths per minute, by taking 5 seconds to breathe in, and 5 seconds to breathe out, and the number of ectopic heartbeats dropped significantly. Doctors explain the exercise and the study in one of his York Cardiology videos.

Reduce or stop alcohol intake. Alcohol is a stimulant and can contribute to the onset of AFIB but also ectopic heartbeats. With stimulants, you have to know how your body reacts to it. What works for me may not work for you. Too much alcohol will not only be bad for you but can put you in AFIB and increase your ectopic heartbeats.

Burping. To take the pressure off your vagus nerve due to bloating of your stomach, you can burp/bring up gas. There are many over the counter products that will break up gas and prompt burping. This can bring immediate relief in most cases if your ectopic heartbeat vagus nerve connection is your main problem.

Stress Less. If you have been checked out by your doctor and he says your heart is OK, then believe him! If you are stressed your heart goes faster, and you can “feel” your heart more, then you stress more. You see the cycle? One of the most common links between people who have ectopic heartbeats is the fact that they have health-related anxiety. Stress can be a trigger of ectopic heartbeats. Something that I learned from my grandmother is, sit down, make a cup of Rooibos tea breathe in and relax. Rooibos tea has many “anti-stress” qualities because of it’s high magnesium levels, influence on cortisol levels, no caffeine content and antioxidant count.

Keep your bowels moving. Constipation can lead to bloating and that will influence the vagus nerve. Taking a magnesium supplement can help with better bowel movement. If you have regular bowel movements you decrease the chance that your vagus nerve gets irritated.

Chew your food. You need your food broken down in your stomach, otherwise, it causes constipation and bloating. To assist with the breakdown of food you need enzymes. When you chew your food properly it releases those enzymes in the saliva that break down food. The other spinoff, of chewing your food properly, is that you eat longer and then you do not eat that much. Your brain gets the time to report that you are full.

Change your posture. A study showed that patients had more vagal ectopic heartbeats when they were lying on their right side. People could also feel ectopic heartbeats when they were lying on their backs and left side. So be prepared to “feel” those HARD and skipped beats when you lie down. I have experienced it and it was no joke. I jolted up sometimes and in most cases, it helped. But you have to go to sleep sometime? Convincing myself that everything would be OK was difficult. Praying and believing that I was alright and saved in any case was a big reassurance. Going to bed very tired also helps, because you then you do not think that much and just fall asleep.

Get more Magnesium. About 50 to 80% of Americans are deficient in magnesium. The value of magnesium for the correct functioning of your heart is immense. There is proof that increased levels of magnesium will help curb your ectopic heartbeats. In a study done at Coração Universidade de São Paulo, “Symptom improvement was achieved in 93.3% of patients” who used the magnesium pidolate for 30 days. Dr Sanjay Gupta also made a video about “Magnesium works for Ectopic heartbeats” and this study. Your ectopic heartbeat vagus nerve palpitations my drop significantly if you get in more magnesium.

Eliminate Caffeine. This is the only way to find out if caffeine has an influence on your ectopic heartbeat vagus nerve palpitations. Sorry to say but there’s caffeine in chocolate, and not just coffee. If you suffer a lot from ectopics it may be a good idea to do a small test on yourself. Count your ectopics when you consume caffeine in normal everyday life. Then cut out all caffeine for 30 days and monitor your ectopic heartbeats. Try drinking Rooibos tea for a month, and see if there is a difference. This simple test will help you immensely.

Do not overindulge. You must treat your stomach with respect! Due to the vagus nerve, there is a very strong connection between your stomach and your heart. An uncomfortable stomach can trigger ectopic heartbeats. An overfull stomach can trigger ectopic heartbeats. Stomach issues like indigestion, GERD or ulcer causes irritation that travels to the heart. This tip also relates to keeping your bowels moving and not irritating your stomach with indigestion.

Self Treatments

Passing gas will relieve bloating in most cases, but doing it where and when is the problem? not in a lift.

I do not know enough about the Valsalva maneuver and could not say if it is useful with ectopic heartbeats. Consult your doctor before you do something like this and any feedback is welcome.

Consult your doctor about other vagal maneuvers like gagging, immersing your face in ice-cold water and coughing, before you attempt them and to get the correct instructions.

Exercise can, and in most cases will help, for people who are inactive.

The reason being is that in most cases it is benign. But the fear and anxiety is awful.

Do not irritate your vagus nerve, a hiatal hernia can be a culprit, as well as excess alcohol, spicy foods, stress, fatigue, and anxiety.

Ectopic heartbeat vagus nerve palpitations may not get much attention from doctors.

Signs and Symptoms of Vagus Nerve Dysfunction

The health and function of your vagus nerve is described as vagal tone.

When your vagus nerve is working as it should, it’s said that you have high vagal tone.

High vagal tone is linked to good physical health, mental well-being, and resilience to stress.

When your vagus nerve isn’t working as well as it should, you have low vagal tone.

If you are easily stressed out and have trouble calming down after experiencing stress, you may well have low vagal tone.

Since one of the vagus nerve’s many functions is to act as an “on-off” switch for inflammation, low vagal tone often leads to chronic inflammation — a major factor in many diseases of the body and the mind including ADHD, anxiety, depression, Alzheimer’s, heart disease, cancer, and diabetes.

Low vagal tone has been linked a long list of physical and mental health conditions that range from mild to serious.

Here are some symptoms and disorders linked to low vagal tone:
Alzheimer’s disease
anxiety disorders
autoimmune disorders
bipolar disorder
chronic fatigue syndrome
difficulty swallowing
digestive disorders
heart disease, including slow heart rate
rheumatoid arthritis
sudden drops in blood pressure
tendency to choke while eating

As you can see, the influence of vagal tone on health is widespread, affecting many major systems.

How to Check Vagus Nerve Function

There are several ways to know if your vagal tone is low.

First is a surprisingly simple way to check the health of your vagus nerve yourself that even doctors use.

Have you ever wondered why they tell you to open your mouth and say “ahh?”

Among other things, this is a simple way to check the health of your vagus nerve.

You can do this yourself at home.

Open your mouth wide and say “ahh.”

You can look in your mouth using a handheld mirror or have someone else look for you.

You want to look at your uvula, the small protrusion that dangles at the back of your throat.

When you say “ahh” the uvula should rise.

If your vagus nerve isn’t working well, it won’t rise much.

You can also press down on your tongue to check your gag reflex.

If you gag that’s a good sign, but if you don’t gag much that means your vagal nerve tone is low.
