Whats a heart arrhythmia (also called dysrhythmia)? It is an irregular heart beat. Healthy hearts operate at a rate of 50 to 100 beats a minute and in a specific pattern. When that pattern changes, it is an arrhythmia.
The irregular heart beat can happen occasionally or regularly. They can happen when the heart is beating too slow or when the heart is beating too fast.
Over 850,000 people a year end up in the hospital because their heart starts beating irregularly.
The various irregular heart beats are known by various medical terms. There are commonalities with all of the various types of arrhythmia's as there are differences. Often times, doctors treat the symptom or the irregularity rather than the cause. The Water Cures Protocol plays an important part in that commonality.
Have you ever experienced a heart palpation? Ever felt like your heart skipped a beat? Then you felt an arrhythmia.
Sometimes there may be a heart disease arrhythmia. Not all arrhythmia's happen with heart disease though. To answer the question, what is a heart dysrhythmia, it is the same as whats a heart arrhythmia. These are different words that mean the same thing.
The arrhythmia's types have both simple and weird names. It could be a 1st Degree Block or a WinkieBach. Each arrhythmia causes unique things to go on inside the heart.
The atria is the top part of the heart. It is made of two smaller chambers that pump into the larger ventricle chambers. The heart also has its own wiring. The electricity causes the contractions on a specific timing so that the beats follow a specific pattern. This is what you see when you see EKG machine on the TV shows or if you are visiting a friend in the hospital. A PAC is when the heart has an extra beat that comes earlier than it is supposed to.
PAC's are considered harmless. It is felt that they do not need treatment.
This raises a question. If the body is causing this abnormal beat, why? If it is not supposed to happen, how can that not be bad? More importantly, if there was a simple, easy dietary way to stop it from beating wrong, then why would we not want to do something to correct it?
PAC's often times happen when there is a lack of magnesium. The Water Cures can naturally end PAC's. The unprocessed salt has trace amounts of magnesium along with up to 84 trace minerals, all necessary for our overall health, which may help resolve the premature beat.
The most common of the arrhythmia's, PVC's are when the verticals or lower chambers skip a beat. You can have this arrhythmia even if you do not have heart disease. Many have experienced this in their lives. Stress, too many caffeinated drinks, smoking or chewing tobacco may cause PVC's. Even over exercising may cause this abnormal beat.
There is a commonality with all arrhythmia's. Caffeine, nicotine and stress all cause electrolyte imbalances. They also promote dehydration. The Water Cures easily corrects these imbalances and may end the arrhythmia with out drugs and without surgery.
This is backed by scientific research as among the causes of PVC's is also electrolyte imbalance and heart disease. Heart disease in many cases may be the result of and caused by fluid and electrolyte imbalance.
Although most PVC's are rarely treated, you should be checked out by a doctor. Find a holistic MD or a naturopathic doctor if you want to avoid drug and surgery solutions to your heart health challenges.
A fib an abnormal contraction of the atria or upper chambers. Atrial fibrillation is a very common irregular heart rhythm that causes the atria, the upper chambers of the heart, to contract abnormally. Because the atria beat chaotically, the beat does not allow for an effective pumping of blood from the atrium to the ventricles.
This is sometimes seen with those who have Lyme Disease.
There are three kinds of A-Fib.
Paroxysmal A-Fib is caused by abnormal electrical signals that quickened heart rate starting suddenly and then just stops. Symptoms may be3 mild or severe and can last for a few seconds, minutes, or persist for hours or even days. Paroxysmal a-fib starts from where the pulmonary veins meet the left atrium (the left upper chamber of the heart).
Persistent A-fib is a condition that only ends with treatment.
Longstanding Persistent Atrial Fibrillation - (formerly called Permanent Atrial Fibrillation) is where the patient's normal heart rhythm cannot be restored with the typical treatments.
Paroxysmal and Persistent A-fib can eventually become Longstanding Persistent Atrial Fibrillation.
Where A Fib is irregular, A Flutter is regular. But it is much faster. Because it is organized, the EKG pattern will look much like a saw tooth.
These often occur in those with heart failure, heart attack, high blood pressure, dysfunctional thyroid, diabetes, chronic lung diseases and those who are given to binge drinking.
The commonality: fluid and electrolyte imbalance.
A rapid regular heart beat. These start and end suddenly.
V-tach is a fast rhythm when the electrical charge comes from the ventricles.
The rapid rate makes the filling of the chambers inadequate. This results in less blood being pumped throughout the body.
This is either a block or delay in the electric impulse traveling to the ventricles.
The beats may be irregular and slower than normal. The block may be measured in degrees, such as first degree block and so on. Pacemakers are often used to correct this arrhythmia.
This is just the basics of the answer to the question, whats a heart arrhythmia.
The Water Cures Protocol Simple and easy ways to correct heart arrhythmia's.
Some find that in addition to the orange juice, taking 1/8th tsp of sea salt dissolved on the tongue also helps.
The key to this working is the combination of vitamin C, potassium and the various minerals in the salt, one of which is magnesium.
