Heart palpitations are an abnormality or irregularity in the heartbeat, characterized by a feeling like your heart is fluttering, or beating too slow or too fast. This can last from just a few seconds to as long as hours.

There can be various causes of palpitations, including external stimulants, psychological factors, and hormonal or biological conditions.

Anemia, overactive thyroid, an electrolyte imbalance in the body; low blood sugar, high levels of adrenalin due to stress or anxiety; strenuous exercise, excessive intake of caffeine, nicotine or alcohol; and use of illicit drugs like cocaine and marijuana are some of the most common causes of palpitations.

Moreover, pregnant women and those who suffer from panic attacks are more prone to this problem. Certain prescription medications may also cause the same.

Palpitations are actually a symptom in themselves. However, they may accompany other symptoms, such as shortness of breath and a sensation of constriction in the throat.

In some cases, heart palpitations can be a symptom of a more serious heart condition, especially when accompanied by symptoms like dizziness, fainting, blurred vision, chest pain, sweating, nausea and vomiting.

Do consult your doctor if you experience these symptoms, especially if they worsen or occur frequently, or if you have a history of heart disease.

In most instances though, palpitations are harmless and resolve on their own. Some simple lifestyle changes and home remedies can also be helpful in relieving the problem.

1. Valsalva Maneuver

This ancient technique can help restore a fast heartbeat to normal. It causes physical intervention that stimulates the 10th cranial nerve (vagus nerve). This in turn leads to slowing of the heart rate.

First, pinch your nose, close your mouth and then try to breathe out forcibly. This will accelerate your heart rate, and then slow down your heartbeat.

Note: If you have heart disease, do not use this remedy.

2. Coughing

Coughing vigorously for a few minutes can help break the pattern of a palpitation. It causes pressure to build up in your chest, which puts your heart back into a normal rhythm.

This is not a preventive measure. Use this remedy only when you are having a palpitation.

3. Deep Breathing

Deep breathing is one of the best ways to deal with heart palpitations. It helps ease anxiety as well as a panic attack and, in turn, helps normalize your heart rate. Deep breathing also helps relax the body and increase the oxygen supply to the brain.

  1. Sit comfortably in a cross-legged position.
  2. Take slow, deep breaths through your nose, allowing your belly to expand with each inhalation.
  3. Breathe out slowly through your mouth.
  4. Repeat for a few minutes until your heart rate slows down.

You can also regularly do yoga and meditation to prevent heart palpitations.

4. Cold Water

As a decrease in fluid intake can make the heart more prone to irregular heartbeats, try drinking a glass of cold water to help restore your normal heartbeat. It will also help reduce stress, anxiety and dizziness.

Splashing cold water on your face can also work well for palpitations and panic attacks. You can also take a cold shower. Cold water helps shock your nervous system to help get your heartbeat back to normal.

5. Blackstrap Molasses

Blackstrap molasses is a simple solution to control palpitations. Being rich in potassium, iron, calcium and magnesium it helps prevent these deficiencies in the body that can cause palpitations. It is particularly good for treating anemia, one of the leading causes of heart palpitations.

  • Stir 1 tablespoon of blackstrap molasses into 1 cup of water and drink it.

  • Another option is to mix 2 teaspoons each of blackstrap molasses and apple cider vinegar in 1 cup of water.
