It is interesting to learn, through many experiences, how to do research on the net, looking for good alternatives to traditional views of any particular disease or illness. I generally always start by entering the name of the disease into Google, for a search. I did that for "rapid heart beat" and got fifty different web address results published HERE. Usually within fifty web sites I will find a wide diversity of data and opinion. The next job is scanning through those fifty, and picking some to read in depth.
I typically find that for certain types of diseases, particularly "hopeless diseases" there are ALWAYS a fairly large number of "foundations" or "institutes" or other type of so-called non-profit organization. I say "so-called" because in my experience almost all of these "non-commercial" web sites are really benefiting some commercial interest -- usually at least the generality of the "drug industry" and often some specific group, like "psychiatric drugs." Probably "psychiatric drugs" are the most common hidden benefactor when the disease is most hopeless. In the case of "rapid heart beat" you can guess that "stress" will be listed as one of the causes. When you check out "stress" your investigation invariably leads to "depression." The psychiatrists have the "depression" industry locked up.
Then, I read through these top ranked web sites, almost always the very top ones don't seem to represent some obvious commercial interest, and I find what is probably an accurate description of the "disease." When I say "accurate, I mean that the physical manifestations would be objectively described.
Thus, if you are concerned about "rapid heart beat" you would find that there has arisen, within the medical community, an agreement on a "definition." The definition for "rapid heart beat" is probably reasonably stated here:
A rapid heartbeat is defined as a heart rate that is faster than normal. The heart normally beats fewer than 100 times per minute in adults. In children, the heart can beat slightly faster than 100 times per minute and still be considered normal. (source)
The Praying Mantis has a intriguing mechanism of survival using fake piety. There is a well understood predatory behavior of lizards, beetles, and plants. Science has found out how beetles lose their wings to mimic wasps, how parasites feed on their own larvae and how certain insects feign death. This is an insight into slaughter, subterfuge and survival in the insect kingdom. Like the predators they are, psychiatrists routinely employ subterfuge to sell their wares!
If you click on the "source" above, you'll arrive at a very traditional view of "rapid heart beat." It is worth reading, just so you know what the traditional view is. In this case, like almost all other "traditional" descriptions of some disease, particularly one, like this, where the cause is mostly uncertain, there will be many causes, each with its own type of treatment, but you can be sure that any non-traditional treatment will be listed mostly as a subterfuge -- to trick you into thinking that THIS source of information is "even-handed," and "balanced." If they list "massage therapy" along with "Prozac," you can understand that they are convinced that massage won't help, that you will think that it might, you try it, it fails for you and you have that terrible feeling that "alternatives don't work for me!" So, very reluctantly you move to the next level of possible treatment -- with Prozac usually being at the end of a list of things that are not likely to work, or that require such a substantial investment of self-discipline by the patient that, even if they would work, the doctors know the patient won't follow them.
One of the possible causes of rapid heart beat is the use of drugs that are prescribed for treating the invented psychiatric disease called attention deficit disorder.
Cardiac side effects: necrotizing vasculitis, thrombocytopenia purpura, blood pressure and pulse changes, rapid heart beat, cardiac arrhythmia, angina. (source)
But, heck! The insurance will pay for the Prozac! Often health insurance will NOT pay for the alternative therapies! So, the patient feels justified in passing right on by the alternatives, and handle the problem immediately with a mind-numbing, vegetative-state producing drug.
When you start reading about rapid heart beat you find, immediately, that "irregular" heart beat is usually mentioned at the same time. Another fancy phrase for "irregular heart beat" is "atrial fibrillation." It is also referred to as "arrhythmia" (fast" rhythm) or even "dis-rhythmia" (meaning "wrong" rhythm.) The most common type of "irregular" heart beat is a "too fast" heart beat. So, Atrial Fibrillation is the most common type of "arrhythmia" -- a correctly worded sentence.
You can even bump into long QT syndrome (LQTS), a so-called genetic cardiac disorder than can cause sudden death in young people.
What is LQTS?
The Long QT Syndrome (often abbreviated as LQTS) is a disorder of the electrical system of the heart. It particularly involves the process called repolarization, or the recharging of the electrical system after each heart beat. The QT interval is a quantity measured on the electrocardiogram (ECG or EKG). The duration of the QT interval is a measure of the time required for depolarization and repolarization to occur. In the long QT syndrome, the duration of repolarization is longer than normal, thus, the QT interval is prolonged. Prolongation of the QT interval renders patients vulnerable to a very fast, abnormal heart rhythm (an "arrhythmia") known as torsade de pointes. When this rhythm occurs, no blood is pumped out from the heart, and the brain quickly becomes deprived of blood, causing the usual symptoms of sudden loss of consciousness (syncope) and sudden death. (source)
What is ventricular dysrhythmia?
Ventricular dysrhythmia, defined as those rhythm disturbances that originate distal to the bifurcation of the bundle of His, can be either completely benign or fatal depending on the type of dysrhythmia and the clinical situation. (source)
There are many of these different irregularities:
Bradycardia describes a heartbeat that is too slow. The word comes from the Latin words brady (slow) and cardia (heart).
Tachycardia (tachy=fast) is a too-rapid heartbeat.
Premature heartbeat occurs when the heart's regular rhythm is interrupted by early or premature beats. It may feel as if the heart has skipped a beat. Usually it is not serious. If the beat arises from locations in the atria (upper chambers) it is called premature atrial beat. Premature ventricular beats arise from the ventricles (lower chambers). Sometimes they are called premature ventricular contractions, or PVCs.
Fibrillation describes a heartbeat that is chaotic, or irregular, and may seem to skip beats or beat out of rhythm. This occurs when a chamber of the heart goes into spasm and fails to pump. (source)
Rapid Heart Beat Is Most Often "Atrial Fibrillation"
Actually the most common name, or at least the most common "problem" is called atrial fibrillation. Click here for a good technical description of this problem, said to affect about 2,000,000 people every year. The word "atrial" comes from the name given to one of the pumping chambers of the heart -- called the "atria," and "fibrillation" means "flutter." It is that chamber that should beat on a regular rhythm but in this case it "flutters."
How things are supposed to work
To better understand the mechanism and characteristics of AF, it is best to begin by describing the normal mechanical and electrical activity of the heart. The heart is a muscle and functions primarily as a double-sided pump. The left side of the heart pumps blood rich in oxygen to supply all parts of the body, while the right side of the heart pumps blood back to the lungs to pick up more oxygen.
There are four chambers, two upper chambers called the left and the right atria and two lower chambers known as the right and left ventricles. Separating these upper and lower chambers there are valves that passively open and close to direct the flow of blood. The left ventricle performs the most work and is the strongest of the chambers because it ejects blood into the aorta (the main pipeline that supplies oxygenated blood to the entire body).
In order for the heart to pump, it must first receive some sort of electrical stimulation that will cause the muscle to contract. During a normal heart beat, an electrical impulse originates in the right atrium in the sinoatrial node (SA node) and travels simultaneously to the left atrium and down the interatrial septum to the atrioventricular node (AV node). The impulse slows briefly at the AV node and then continues to travel down a common pathway splitting off into the left and right bundle branches located in both ventricles. This cycle of electrical stimulation is known as normal sinus rhythm (NSR), which describes a form of orchestrated synchrony between the atria and the ventricles of the heart, producing the familiar (lub-dub) heart sounds.
What exactly is
atrial fibrillation ?
In the broadest sense, AF represents the loss of synchrony between the atria and the ventricles. Typically, AF is characterized as a storm of electrical energy that travels in spinning wavelets across both atria, causing these upper chambers to quiver or to fibrillate at 300 to 600 times per minute.
For many years, AF was believed to be a completely chaotic event with unorganized electrical impulses bouncing around the atria randomly. However, research and computerized mapping techniques have provided greater insight into the mechanism of AF. Typically, there are at least six different locations in the left and right atria where relatively large circular waves can occur, creating a pattern of continuous electrical activity that is characteristic of complex AF. This important discovery paved the way for the development of the Maze procedure, a surgical intervention that extinguishes atrial fibrillation.
Atrial fibrillation can also occur as a secondary event. Other arrhythmias such as atrial tachycardia and atrial flutter may be initiated from a single region of either atrium and subsequently degenerate into AF. (source)
There are more names, but let's look, now at the drugs that are often prescribed, and the final remedy being the "pace maker" surgically installed into your heart.
Sinus rhythm is often restored with medications by slowing the conduction of electrical impulses, decreasing the excitability and automaticity of cardiac cells, or prolonging the refractory period (rest period) of cardiac tissue. Several medications may be used to terminate atrial fibrillation including procainimide (Pronestyl), quinidine, disopyramide (Norpace), and amiodarone (Cordarone). The effectiveness of pharmacological cardioversion and one's tolerance of drug therapy is quite individualized. Medications may often be changed in order to achieve the desired outcome of reducing symptomatic episodes of AF. Unfortunately, some of these drugs can have pro-arrhythmic effects, causing the heart to become even more irritable and setting the stage for new arrhythmias to occur. (Source)
There are other drugs mostly for general purposes, but often prescribed when irregular heart beat is occuring.
Beta-blockers affect the force and frequency of heart beats; they slow certain metabolic processes, ease the workload of the heart, and reduce pressure.
Atenolol has been found to reduce left ventricular hypertrophy and, when used with the diuretic chlorthalidone, was found to significantly reduce the risk for heart failure, particular in patients at high risk for it. (source)
The prognosis for return to normal with these drugs is not good. That is because like most drugs, these treat only the symptoms.
When drugs don't do the job, the next stop is usually a "pacemaker."
The term "artificial pacemaker" is used for a small, battery-operated device that helps the heart to beat in a regular rhythm. A pacemaker uses batteries to send electrical impulses to your heart to help it pump properly. Most pacemakers have a sensing device that turns the pacemaker off when your heart beat is above a certain level. It can also turn itself back on when your heartbeat is too slow. (source)
Pacemakers are expensive, even though covered by insurance usually. But isn't that generally true. The best treatments are either free or expensive and not covered by insurance. In any event, your doctor is driven by insurance and drug interests -- if you ask him about your rapid heart beat he will tell you about the drugs, and about the pacemaker, but he will NOT tell you about magnesium!
The cause is often nothing more than a shortage of magnesium in the blood stream. The two minerals, calcium and magnesium play a very important role in regulating the rate of heart beat. This is so basic to human physiology that it has been forgotten by most doctors -- particularly those who have had drug detail salesmen visiting them weekly for dozens of years. There is no money in minerals!
The heart is a muscle and its primary function is to pump blood throughout the body. The heart is composed of billions of cells, each of which works as an electrochemical generator, and contains both calcium and magnesium. On the outer surface of the heart cells, thin fibers made of a substance called "actin", continually expand and contract in unison with the heartbeat. The actin fibers are stimulated by calcium, and then relaxed by magnesium. An electrical charge produced by magnesium then pushes the calcium to the opposite side of the cell. Thus, calcium helps to produce the heartbeat, and magnesium regulates it. (source)
If the amount of magnesium in your blood stream is not right, the heart beat can become irregular. Most people have plenty of calcium because any shortage of calcium in the blood stream can be handled by the body taking calcium out of the bones. But, a shortage of magnesium requires some regular intake of magnesium -- from food or supplements. Unfortunately there is one very common type of "food" which removes magnesium from the body -- sodas and soft drinks. Drink a Pepsi and you lose magnesium. Drink lots of sodas and you may well have irregular or rapid heart beat!
Phosphorus laden soft drinks can cause magnesium deficiency because phosphorus interferes with digestion. For every milligram of phosphorus contained in the soft drink 1 milligram of magnesium is destroyed. On the average, a soft drink contains approximately 30 mg of phosphorus. (source)
Your body has a hard time keeping up its supply of magnesium. Therefore your heart beat can easily become irregular when there is a shortage of magnesium. If you have this symptom for your heart, the easiest, quickest and cheapest way to improve your situation may well be simply to buy some magnesium supplement at your local health food store.
The principal function of magnesium that is critical in thyroid disease is that it enables muscles to relax. With inadequate magnesium, the muscles cramp. When this happens to the heart muscles the heart does not go through a complete relaxation phase, and the next calcium-driven contraction begins before the relaxation is complete. This results in rapid heart beat and irregular heart rate known as arrhythmia. (source)
Here are three different pages with excellent information about Magnesium. Click on any one of them, then the next two, read and learn how easy it may well be for you to eliminate the rapid heart beat problem.
Peter Gillham has been in the vitamin business much longer than I have. I count him as a friend. He has had more good information about Magnesium than any other source I've ever seen.
What is Natural Calm?
The solution is to take the magnesium in a form where it is completely dissolved in WATER. In this form the magnesium assimilates fast into the body producing almost instant relief. Natural Calm is a product, which was developed especially for that reason. It handles the excess calcium in the body and gradually dissolves the calcium deposits and the calcified body parts giving a new lease of life. Natural Calm is a water-soluble magnesium powder, and provides the most assimilable, effective, fast-acting magnesium available. You make it fresh each time and it works better than any other form such as tablets or caps.
Magnesium can be taken on its own without side effects or liability. Magnesium taken on its own without any calcium will help you feel younger, more energetic, stronger, and give you a multitude of other benefits all as a result of the magnesium being present to do its job. To handle a magnesium deficiency it is best to take the magnesium on its own without any calcium. Then, only when the deficiency is handled, go back onto calcium and magnesium together. Stay alert for any need for extra magnesium or better yet take some on a regular basis. (source)
His is also the only source of magnesium that I would trust. I have no financial connection with Peter, but enthusiastically recommend his magnesium. Click here for data and HERE for his products offered for sale.
Magnesium ...1......2... ...3...
High Blood Pressure?
The source of magnesium, above, is a very safe and good test. It often works to lower blood pressure -- safe and cheap.
Also, potassium is very good for this. I have many pages about potassium HERE.

This is a wonderful site. I asked a question, and I got an immediate reply regarding magnesium and I just want to tell you that I got on the magnesium and my life has completely changed around in 4 days.
Thank you so much.
I don't know where I should send this message, but, I can tell you that I have fought my blood pressure problems for over 18 years, and I read about the magnesium which was sent to me and suggested to me by Karl saying I think you need magnesium.
I take one tablet a day along with my blood pressure pill and this is only the fourth day and I have had success.
Besides my ears no longer ring, my head always felt like I was under electric wires with the buzzing.
Thanks for your help.
