One of the most common complaints I get as a cardiologist (besides “Doc you made me wait too long!”) is rapid or irregular heart beats often called palpitations. By and large excitement, stress, caffeine and alcohool are the most common culprits. I wobn’t talk about more serious causes at this time but would be glad to address them at a future date and reassure you they are mostly treatable and not as common causes as the ones I listed above.
The heart functions by electrical stimulii or electrical excitement which travel as circuits and lead to heart muscle squeezing or pumping blood to the rest of the body. So this EXCITABLE organ works very closely with the mind and as the eyes and ears are the fodder for the mind you can get excited by what you hear and see.
ith all the pressure in our United Stress of America , it’s a wonder that 95% of us do not get palpitatiions. Sometimes our sense of smell is enough to do the same. Yes our senses are the greatest culprits causing us to act in any way but sensible. Here the heart is the most easily drawn into the dance of stress by the adrenaline we bathe it in every single day.
