    Nightly heart palpatations and worry...looking for input

    Primal Blueprint Expert Certification
    Hi, everyone. I'm on Day 16 and feeling great on strict Primal. It's occurred to me that I no longer have a racing heart (heart palpatations), and feelings of extreme worry during the night. I am 48 and very healthy but often worried why my heart would race and behave erratically.

    Since going primal, the symptoms have stopped -- completely. Just wondered if anyone else has experienced similar feelings/results?

    Thanks,

    I've been primal for over a year and have noticed my heart irregularities have almost disappeared, but not completely. Caffeine still has an effect on that and I do still drink coffee once or twice a week so that may have something to do with it. I have not, however, had one panic attack since going primal, which is a big deal. Used to get them ALL THE TIME. Now, never!

    Yes, my chest pains disappear when I am eating primally. They do come back if I fall off the wagon for too long. Ditto for my anxiety. I don't know what the exact cause was, but now that I know how to stop it (even if I sometimes find it hard to break my bad habits) I don't care too much.

    diet change and a multivitamin made my PVCs unnoticeable

    (excess caffeine and days of no sleep bring em right back with a vengeance tho)
    beautiful
    yeah you are

    I mean there's so many ants in my eyes! And there are so many TVs, microwaves, radios... I think, I can't, I'm not 100% sure what we have here in stock.. I don't know because I can't see anything! Our prices, I hope, aren't too low!

    Yes. I started to have palpitations while I was vegan. I switched to primal, and they stopped immediately.

    That said, they came back like crazy when I was pregnant. :P Which probably isn't a problem for you at 48. Heh.

    Onalark: Thanks for your thoughts. I have 4 -- my last two were twins (now 21 years old)...... My heart palpatations are now generally caused by my 'young adults' --- gray hair and heart palpatations --- not sure if Primal can help me!

    I know lots of women in their late forties who would love to be pregnant. Never assume.

    But onto the real subject my heart palpitations go away when i remember to take my iron supplement so it makes sense going paleo would stop them. My TCM provider says heart palpitations are a classic sign of low iron in women.

    There's a reason there was a "probably" in that statement.

    One of the reasons I went primal was because I was having frequent scary heart palpitations, it would beat really fast then skip around and bit and sometimes feel like it just stopped for a few seconds....been primal for 5 months and I haven't had a single palpitation in I'd say the last 4.
    I treat my body like a temple.....to nourish the Goddess who lives inside
