I posted (a few posts down) yesterday about my son having heart palpatations and feelings as if his heart had stopped for a few beats. I also suffered with this problem for many years, so I know it can be frustrating. But, the thing is, I was reading about OLIVE LEAF EXTRACT, is that good for this? it seems to be good for so many things, and I thought I had read it was good for your heart........any thoughts on this?
P.S.- his heart palpatations seem to start up when he goes to lay down at night to go to bed, as mine used to......what is that?
olive leaf is anti viral... of the qualities that I know it is really good for canadida,parasites, and viral infections....
Im not sure about its effects on the heart....
Is there anything else about your sons laying down at night that may contribute....
like a late night snack? or a new mattress? new laundry detergent? did anything recently happen to his room?
Has he beeen taking any type of drugs? street or prescription?
A lot of extra stress? Has he had a really poor diet... ? Sick as a kid? Depressed? strange behavior or addictions?
You might want to get him to take a Tbls. of hemp or flax or fish oil every day.... as well as a good quality b- suppliment...... while you see what other info you can find to get to the root of this....
"Olive leaf extract is hypotensive and antidiabetic; is helpful in some types of arrhythmias; and is protective against LDL oxidation. Use one to two 500-mg capsules 3 times a day, with meals."
The link to the web site is at the bottom of the page.
Also, Magnesium is great for the heart and will help calm the nervous system. it is wise to balance magnesium intake with both calcium and potassium For all heart problems, supplements containing magnesium, vitamin E and hawthorn in combination are effective. Green food supplements that are high in chlorophyll are also high in magnesium. Some other supplements are barley grass or wheat grass, chlorella and spirulina.
Coenzyme Q10 is another effective supplement that regulates heartbeat and speed.
To calm the nervous system, the B vitamins, together with vitamin C, are recommended.
I know that dehydration can cause heart palpitations too: his electrolytes may be off. You could put him on the Water Cure protocol
Does your son eat anything with Aspartame in it? Also junk foods have many chemical constituents that can contribute to throwing the hearts's electrical pattern off.
Caffeine in soda pop is also a major factor here. To much Sugar must also be stressed in this stuation as well as improper and harmful fats as found in frenchfries and hamburgers, etc.
For starters, a nutritious diet wil go along way in rectifying this and many other problems. Include sufficient pure water intake as well. Then excercise is very important as well to keep the cardiovascular system in top notch condition. Other factors of toxilogical importance are:
Dental health (amalgam replacement)
Viral/fungal/bacterial load (zapper and fixing biological terrain with sound nutrition)
Stress reduction (meditation and good communication skills)
Reduce or better yet, eliminate all household and personal chemicals to reduce total load on immune system
Reduce time spent watching television/computer activity as this is a huge negative electrical load on the body. Very bad for the thymus gland as well as brainwave activity.
Also impairs cellular activity.
This flutter in the heart is an early warning sign that the body is dealing with toxins. Proper nutrition and some cleansing should get him back on track. Beware of baidaid solutions as they will only deepen the problem of toxicity and have other symptoms join in on the body's cries for help.
The Kidney works really hard to dillute and detoxify the body. Surely, palpitations and flutters are a symptom of Kidney stress dealing with toxins.
(Oh gosh, I am looking all over for the article I had on it. I will post it when I find it.)
Anyway, hormones from the adrenals, above kidney, affect the electrolyte balance of the blood. You may be familiar with Aldosterone:: Aldosterone , steroid secreted by the cortex of the adrenal gland. It is the most potent hormone regulating the body's electrolyte balance. Aldosterone acts directly on the kidney to decrease the rate of sodium-ion excretion (with accompanying retention of water), and to increase the rate of potassium-ion excretion. The secretion of aldosterone appears to be regulated by two mechanisms. First, the concentration of sodium ions may be a factor since increased rates of aldosterone secretion are found when dietary sodium is severely limited. Second, reduced blood flow to the kidney stimulates certain kidney cells to secrete the proteolytic enzyme renin, which converts the inactive angiotensinogen globulin in the blood into angiotensin I. Another enzyme then converts angiotensin I into angiotensin II, its active form. This peptide, in turn, stimulates the secretion of aldosterone by the adrenal cortex. Pathologically elevated aldosterone secretion with concomitant excessive retention of salt and water often results in edema (swelling).
When this happens the pressure of the blood amy be low. In this case, the heart will pump faster to get more blood where it needs to go. People who who have low blood pressure often feel light headed or palpitations when laying down or standing up from a lying position. Hulda Clark 's kidney cleanse would be great for him. Watermelons and the seeds are great for kidney too. Watch his caffeine intake or anything dehydrating..ice tea, chocolate. Olive leaf, never hurts, and is a great natural antibiotic.
