Heart palpitations, high pulse rate, elevated blood pressure! Help! Any natural remedies?

I have been under tons of stress that lead to my heart palpitating. I’m 27, overweight, with a history of anxiety. I had an ecg done that looked normal at that time…will see a cardiologist in 3 weeks just in case. Doctor prescribed Xanax, but I want to try a natural substance first. I have talked to several nurses who believe it is anxiety. I’m scared crapless just thinking of them occurring again. My blood pressure is in the pre-hypertension range of 140/90, with a resting pulse rate between 90-96. I quit the caffeine ASAP, and eating healthier. What natural tea or whatever can help to avoid xanax?

vti answers:

First, If you do have a heart condition, you need to be very cautious as far as the natural remedies go, because everyone’s body responds differently to different herbal remedy’s. First you have to find out what is the true cause before you can treat it adequately. The weight is definitely adding extreme stress to the heart, it weaken’s the heart, and makes all of the organs have to work harder which will raise your blood pressure and pulse. But that being said, those are not nearly the only causes for this, it could be many different things. Are you on any current meds?, are you dehydrated, has your thyroid blood levels been checked etc etc….all of those things can potentially affect the heart rhythm and pulse rate…along with stress as you mentioned. Ask your physician if you can get a referral to a nutritionist, have your doc do blood work CBC, Thyroid as well. Just try to eat better, stay hydrated, plenty of rest and excercise’s such as walking, swimming etc. As far as remedy’s to help you I like Stash Chai Green Tea during the day, that helps alot, and it also raises your metabolism, and reduces hunger. At night you should try not to eat carbs within 2-3 hours of bedtime, this helps you to sleep better, if your hungry, try a small piece of low fat cheese, or 4 oz non fat milk, or a small protein snack, this helps you to relax, and sleep better, you can also try Camomile tea at night, works wonders, also if you buy Pure Lavender Essential oil, dilute 10 drops to 8 oz of water, and spritz it on you throughout the day, or anytime you need to settle down and relax, you can spritz it on your bed linens, pillows, in your bath…but word of caution…you will definitely be relaxed and potentially sleepy….it is not a drug, it is all natural, and very therapeutic…..good luck to you

i have just discovered i have high blood pressure any ideas on how i can reduce this with natural remedies etc

vti answers:

Yes there are natural remedies for high blood pressure.
First cut the salt down or out in your diet. Take a walk everyday. You don’t have to power walk but walk at least 15-20 minutes. As you get more used to it you can increase your walking pace. Take the stairs whenever possible. Cut out the junk food. If you smoke cut way back or stop if you can smoking does raise your blood pressure. Eat bananas. Drink plenty of water. Get a cd or video of deep breathing excercizes this will also help you to reduce your stress level and as a by product reduce your blood pressure. Try the pomegranate juice or better yet eat a pomagranate and chew up the seeds, they’re a good source of fiber. Try to stay away from processed foods like frozen dinners, white bread and donuts and fast food.Eat whole wheat bread – Check The Label – If Whole Wheat Flour isn’t the first ingredient its NOT whole wheat bread. Eat vegetables with lots of color in them Tomatoes, red & yellow peppers, squash, kale, mustard greens, spinach, broccoli rabe. There’s lots of real good stuff in them to keep you healthy. Also eat fresh fruit/ they too have lots of stuff in them to keep you healthy and the complex carbs break down slowly and help to keep your appetite from getting out of control. Keep in mind that this is the only body you get and you have to treat it kindly. It’s a really complex piece of machinery if you will much like our earth’s ecosystem. You mess with one thing and it always affects other things in the system. You don’t have to go on a crash diet or take pills if you take some responsibility for your eating habits if you learn how to respect the vehicle that is your body you can reduce your blood pressure and cholestoral too.
I have done it and so have lots of other people & you can too. Good Luck and happy eating.

Mark asks…

are there alternative remedys for high blood pressure?

I am currently taking bp medication, just wondering if there are alternatives to this

vti answers:

There are treatments that MIGHT help with high blood pressure. These include magnesium, calcium, omega-3 oils, coenzyme Q10, hibiscus. Yoga, other forms of exercise and types of relaxation like meditation might help. In yoga, avoid inverted (upside-down) poses like shoulderstands or headstands.

However, the risks of hypertension are great, from strokes to heart attacks, especially when this problem is chronic.

I strongly suggest you don’t self-medicate with this condition. Perhaps you can find a qualified MD who specializes in alternative remedies for hypertension.

I suggest you continue with your bp medication. With your doctor’s consent, you might add some natural remedies to the conventional medication. Hopefully, your bp will return to normal with the medication. Possibly, you can then taper off the bp medication and see if any alternative remedies can help to keep your bp normal and stable.

For now, take the meds to lower your blood pressure. Think of alternative remedies as possible aids to the medication, NOT as replacements. I wish you well.

EDIT: Dr. Andrew Weil is one of the leading authorities on integrative medicine, which combines the best of alternative and conventional medicine. There’s a possibility you might be helped by his Healthy Heart Kit. Http://

David asks…

home remedies to reduce high blood pressure?

vti answers:

A healthy, well-balanced, low fat diet is extremely important for hypertension patients. Fresh fruits and vegetables are a must ( garlic should be included ) as the potassium present in them counters the effect of salt taken which in turn is a blood pressure increasing agent. Kidney patients, though, should keep a watch over their potassium intake. This diet of fruits and vegetables will also provide you with anti-oxidants, so very important for your general well being. This diet gets rid of the toxins in the body as well.

Obesity, and this holds true for people of any age, is a sure shot cause of high blood pressure. So reduce your weight to appropriate levels (your doctor will guide you in this matter).

Keep your mind relaxed by doing some kind of meditation, if possible, and try to keep your anxiety level low. Although there are many options like self hypnosis, biofeedback and transcendental meditation (TM) or progressive muscle relaxation (PMR) program; yoga is supposed to be the most effective.

There are a number of herbal and homeopathic remedies that are well known for their ability to control high blood pressure with great success. Unlike conventional medicines, which do not always address the root cause, natural remedies can do this without the risk of side effects or addiction.

In keeping with a holistic approach to health, Naturopaths recognize that high blood pressure may be a sign or symptom of imbalance in the body and thus recommend a combination of lifestyle changes and natural remedies to remove the causes of the high blood pressure, rather than simply just treating the symptoms.

Remember to always source your natural remedies from a reputable company in order to ensure safety, efficacy, and correct therapeutic dosage.
