Mary Jo from Southampton, MA, asked:
I have a post-it note on my cabinet to remind me to call in but I always forget to. Guess I need a bigger post-it note. Can you please tell me what is going on with my heart? I am an active 48-year-old woman who is healthy and not on any medications.
About a year and a half ago, I started feeling my heart racing from time to time. Since then it has increased to a weekly experience and often happens when I lay down at night. I have also experienced dizziness and a fluttering or skipped beat in my heart as well as a pounding and a vibrating feeling that reaches up to my neck. My doctor is running tests but I’d really appreciate it if you could connect in and tell me what is going on.
Thank you and take care.
Hi Mary Jo,
Hope you get that big post-it note to remind you to call in to the show. I’d love to talk with you.
To get some answers for you, I energetically connected with you in Southampton. Your heart looked like it was electrically misfiring. (Imagine looking at a heart with sparks flying out of its edges.)
You have what I believe is a form of cardiac arrhythmia, also known as an irregular heartbeat. And, the symptoms you describe, racing heart, dizziness, etc., are all common in arrhythmia patients.
In addition, I believe your fairly recent onset of symptoms is related to your being in peri-menopause. Our hormones help regulate all of our bodily functions and as we age, they decline. A large part of staying healthy is to restore these hormone levels to those of a younger person.
The Cleveland Clinic says, “During perimenopause (the time period before menopause), there is a marked decrease in ovarian estrogen production. This is associated with an increase in heart rate (sinus tachycardia) and an increased frequency in palpitations and non-threatening arrhythmias. Menopause causes a further decline in estrogen as the menstrual cycle stops. This time period is associated with irregular heartbeats, palpitations, and spasmodic chest pain in women 40-64 years old.”
So, in order to help you heal, I watched an energetic ablation occur that got your heart beating in a normal rhythm. Cardiac ablation is a fairly common procedure where radiofrequency energy is used to scar areas of the heart causing the irregular heartbeat and return the heart to beating normally.
In addition, energetic estrogen was administered to help restore optimal hormone levels which will in turn help your heart beat naturally.
Based on what I’m seeing, I believe you’ll be able to eradicate your arrhythmia symptoms when you get your hormones balanced.
In the meantime, here are a couple of suggestions:
– Work with a functional medicine physician who is knowledgeable about bioidentical hormones. They’ll treat your body as a whole system and help you focus on wellness. Go to the Institute For Functional Medicine, click on “find a practitioner” and insert your zip code. A list of doctors in your area will appear.
Thanks for your question.
