I am supposed to have a 30 day event monitor for my heart starting sometime next week and an echo on Monday to check for cardiomyopathy (hypertrophic). I have been in a lot of discomfort due to abnormal ventricular tachycardia and supra-ventricular tachycardia as well as a gradual increase in my BP for no apparent reason over the past 6 months. They have me on the highest dose of Atenolol (a beta-blocker) that they can put my on and it is not cutting it anymore. Do you have any tips on things that will keep your heart rate in line and at a normal rhythm at least until I get the monitor? It will come in the mail but likely not until Wed or Thurs due to the holiday weekend... I figured this was the best place for finding a more natural approach to this.

Sorry you will have to wear the monitor for so long, that will be a pain. But hopefully it will help to clear up what is happening. Have any of your doctors considered stress as a reason for increasing BP? Most doctors acknowledge that stress raises BP.

I have heard that meditation can help to slow heart rate and lower BP. I haven't tried meditating, but I can get my heart rate to slow down sometimes if I sit quietly and take long, deep breaths. There is also something called Resperate (sp?) that is like a biofeedback machine, and the manufacturer claims that using it for 15 minutes a couple times a day can lower BP; IDK if it lowers heart rate too. Sorry I know this is mostly about BP, I don't know what to do to keep a heart rhythm normal. KUP.

We aren't to give a baby milk, berries, or peanut butter. We are to introduce new foods one at a time. But it's OK to inject several viruses, bacteria, aluminum, formaldehyde, phenoxyethanol, animal serum, mercury, squalene and more into an 8 week old? I don't think so.
In order to be healthy it is an unfortunate fact that people must be allowed the opportunity to be ill. I trust my body and those of my children to work correctly against the relatively benign diseases they vax for, and do not trust the ingredients in the vaccinations.
Our choice to not vax isn't based in ignorance, poverty, conspiracy theory and rumor. It's research, common sense, fact and evidence based..something the medical community has largely forgot about.

While stress can raise BP it shouldn't raise it that much. They have ruled out cardiomyopathy thank goodness but that leaves no clear reason for the sudden spike in BP. Maybe to 140/80 150/85 at the most but it shouldn't raise to 167/87. And that is WITH a medication that is supposed to lower BP and heart rate. A typical maintenance dosage is 100 mg and I am on 200 mg. A BP this high while on that dosage of this medication is quite concerning...
