In this video, we’re going to talk about heart arrhythmias and how they relate to excessive amounts of calcium in your cells.

Arrhythmias are a problem with the rhythm of your heart. This could be a minor palpitation or a major atrial fibrillation—and anything else that involves an irregular heart rhythm.

The most common cause of arrhythmias is excess calcium stuck in your cells—this is why many arrhythmia medications are calcium channel blockers.

Calcium is one of many electrolytes that supports the function of your heart:
• Sodium controls the “spark”
• Calcium controls the “squeeze
• Magnesium controls the “relaxation”

There are many cannon triggers for heart palpitations:
1. Caffeine
2. Alcohol
3. Sugar
4. Stress (cortisol)
5. Electrolytes (magnesium)
6. Low vitamin D
7. Chocolate
8. Drugs

Each of these will affect calcium physiology—which can cause palpitations.

You can control how much calcium is in your cells with magnesium. Any imbalance of electrolytes can have a short-circuiting effect, which throws off the systems in your body and causes palpitations.

Low magnesium could be a result of insulin resistance or consuming too many foods high in sugar and carbs. It could also be a result of not consuming enough magnesium in your diet. Most magnesium comes from leafy greens.

Other causes of high calcium in the cells are:
• K2 imbalance
• Vitamin D imbalance
• Potassium imbalance

Take a look at your diet and lifestyle habits and see if any of the things I mentioned above could be triggering heart arrhythmia. It may take some trial and error to figure out a solution.
