HOW TO STOP TACHYCARDIAS
TIPS TO STOP TACHYCARDIAS
Stress and tachycardias
Stress is one of the main factors triggering tachycardias. A positive attitude towards life, avoiding or minimizing our problems will help us prevent the occurrence of such arrhythmias.
The adoption of techniques such as yoga or biofeedback can be very useful.
Relaxation for tachycardia
Too much work involves a personal state of stress which affects our emotional and physical stability and can increase heartbeat.
Tachycardia and Vagus Nerve Stimulation
Heartbeat is regulated by the nervous system. The sympathetic nervous system is responsible for accelerating the heart while the parasympathetic nervous system has the function of slowing it down.
Vagus Nerve Stimulation is done by an especial gadget which sends electric impulses to the vagus nerve. It requires the intervention of a surgeon in order to implant it. This technique is done at the moment by Cyberonics, Inc. Company
A less intrusive and home remedy to stimulate vagus nerve for someone consists on taking a long breath and, at the same time, bending down one's head towards one's stomach. A light pressure on the carotid artery can also provide similar effects.
Exercise and tachycardia
Exercise strengthens the heart muscles allowing it to pump more blood with a lower heartbeat rate. When we are practicing sports, heart beats faster than when we are at rest. However, people who do physical exercise regularly have slower heartbeat when being at rest.
Diet and tachycardia
