Palpitations (tachycardia)
When the heart knows no rest.

“I feel like my whole chest is fluttering,” “Suddenly I feel dizzy unexpectedly,” “My heart is racing so fast that I get scared.”

This is how tachycardia sufferers experience their excessively accelerated pulse. With more than 100 beats per minute, often considerably more, the heart maltreats the body and weakens the patient.

Tachycardia can have very different causes: Hormonal disturbances as in thyroid disorders, overexcitation in stressful situations, excitation conduction disturbances of the pacemaker cells, a cardiac insufficiency – or not infrequently without any cause recognizable at first glance.

How does Vedic Medicine see palpitations?

Palpitations from an Ayurvedic point of view

According to the Maharishi Ayurveda approach, palpitations starts with the loss of natural balance.

Metabolic residues and toxins, called “Ama” in Ayurveda, are constantly produced – due to our way of life – which in the case of tachycardia have mostly accumulated in the heart area.

Every tachycardia patient knows that emotional stress and an unstable nervous system can additionally act as amplifiers and ever-repeating triggers of the familiar symptoms.

But according to Ayurveda, no two patients are alike and so the reasons for tachycardia are different for everyone. The Ayurvedic approach in our clinic is based on holism.

What can Ayurveda do for you?

In Vedic medicine, Palpitations is addressed by combining various treatments into a multi-faceted approach adapted to your individual situation, as determined in a comprehensive diagnosis by one of our physicians.
