Why Do You Get Heart Palpitations After Eating

New To Keto But Want To Grow Your Knowledge?

More specifically, you want help with Why Do You Get Heart Palpitations After Eating?

so why would someone get heart palpitations after they eat let’s talk about that first of all what is the palpitation it’s a skipped beat it could be an extra beat as well you also have PVCs and pa CS this stands for premature ventricular contractions or premature atrial contractions you don’t need to know that all you need to know is both of these are extra abnormal beats that can occur a palpitation is an irregular heartbeat it’s a sensation that you feel in the chest area like a flip-flop or something that starts and stops and it has to do with your heart pacemaker it’s called a cardiac pacemaker a pacemaker is a group of cells that are automatically programmed to keep the heart and rhythm an average person at rest normally has a heartbeat of 70 70 beats per minute and what’s happening is you’re getting this rhythmic electrical impulse that causes the heart to contract which pushes the blood through the lungs to get oxygen carries it through the body gives oxygen to the cells which comes back through the other side of the heart and the whole cycle starts over again at the cellular level you’re getting this exchange with different electrolytes okay which are electrically charged minerals like potassium and sodium and magnesium and chloride and calcium and you have these little tiny pumps that are made of protein that are pumping in and out of the cells at a very very fast rate like a thousand per second these different electrolytes and what causes the electrolytes to travel are the difference in electrical charge the difference in pH and the difference in concentration of certain minerals and on top of that you have a part of the nervous system called the autonomic nervous system so it’s a bit complex so let’s just get into what causes palpitations and by the way palpitations skip heart beats are a precursor for a more serious problem like atrial fibrillation and other more it Vance problems with the rhythm of the heartbeat but let’s get into the main causes and the ones that are more common than others the big one is digestion when I was in practice there’s so many people that came in with palpitations and digestive problems and I’m talking about heartburn acid reflux GERD and gall bladder issues and that could be burping belching bloating gall stones sludge in the gall bladder and a lot of those cases had complications so what is the connection well we don’t exactly know but it’s probably the pressure that’s occurring inside the bile ducts and a lot of times when you have a gall bladder problem you have a buildup of pressure somewhere in the tubes between the liver and the gallbladder or the liver and the small intestine and when that pressure builds up it can create a lot of soft tissue guarding and tension and spasm around the area and because the bile ducts and the gallbladder are so closely connected to the cardiovascular system that pressure can then affect the heart and cause these palpitations I’m going to talk about what to do about that in a little bit but let’s go to number two low potassium this is probably one of the top causes as well why because potassium is the main electrolyte that controls the pacemaker and if you’re low in potassium the risks go up for you getting palpitations and other problems even atrial fibrillation which is a more advanced version of that number three let’s say your pH is too alkaline and what I’m talking about alkaline I’m talking about when the pH goes higher okay the lower you get the more acidic things are if the blood pH which normally should be between seven point three five and seven point four five goes above seven point four or five even a little bit your body is now excessively alkaline it’s called alkalosis that occurs the minerals specifically potassium doesn’t move that well through the body through the heart so if your pH is too alkaline that could be the cause and before caffeine too much caffeine can cause this problem to which alcohol a hyper thyroid condition I’m not gonna focus on these right here I want to focus on these two right here which are the more common let’s take a look at that right now all right so if you have digestive problems whether bloating heartburn GERD acid reflux I put some links down below so you can get a lot more information on what to do about it but the simple thing to do would be to start doing in a minute fasting for those of you that are new to my channel I put a link down below if you’re not new to my channel you know what a minute fasting is because that is the most powerful thing that you can do to take the pressure off the digestive system and let the digestive system actually reset and heal especially the gallbladder you also need to avoid refined carbohydrates and vegetable oils like in soy oil in corn oil these two types of so-called foods are very very hard on the gallbladder and the stomach and they’re highly associated with causing that pressure build up in those tubes simple thing to do would be do healthy ki tale put a link down below for those of you that don’t know what that is that will help the digestion and that will decrease the risk of getting these palpitations alright number two alkalinity if you have low potassium that could be the cause of your body being too alkaline if you have high cortisol if you’re too stressed out that could be the reason why your body is too alkaline I know a lot of people are trying to alkalize the body because they think they’re too acid and that might be the case but there’s also another problem of being too alkaline and that will affect the minerals especially potassium I put a link down below if you’re confused on that so you can understand pH also low hydrochloric acid okay like in your stomach that can create a problem with your pH as well in which case you want to start consuming apple cider vinegar some through the diet if you do a combination of healthy keto like I’m recommending for this I always recommend apple cider vinegar with that program so you should kill two birds with one stone next thing and this is very very common you just have low potassium that’s going to set you up for this problem now why are you low in potassium maybe you’re on a diuretic because you have high blood pressure well guess what there’s three things that cause high blood pressure one would be low potassium so in other words the low potassium is causing the high blood pressure which causes you to take a diuretic which depletes your potassium you see the problem there also if you’re low in vitamin D which a lot of people are that can cause hypertension and deplete your potassium reserves and if you have high insulin which the majority population has or you have insulin resistance or you’re pre-diabetic that can cause a depletion of potassium diarrhea that can also deplete your potassium levels as well as other electrolytes if you’re on any assets that can cause low potassium because it takes a very strong acid stomach to absorb these minerals thus the outside of vinegar in your diet and lastly let’s say you’re just not consuming enough dietary potassium this is very common why because you don’t consume enough vegetables it takes seven to ten cups of vegetables to get close to your daily amount of potassium that your body needs so you need to up these if you’re having a hard time with this I put a link down below of an electrolyte powder that may help you as well all right there you have it the actual causes of palpitations after you eat and when you’re not eating as well thanks for watching hey if you’re liking this content please subscribe now and I will actually keep you updated on future

Why would someone get heart palpitations after eating? In this video, we’re going to talk about that. 

What is a palpitation?
A palpitation is an irregular heartbeat—a skipped heartbeat or an extra heartbeat. It has to do with your cardiac pacemaker. Palpitations can be a precursor to more serious problems that have to do with the rhythm of the heartbeat. 

What causes palpitations?
1. Digestion (gallbladder issues) 
2. Low potassium 
3. pH (too alkaline)
4. Caffeine, alcohol, a hyperthyroid condition 

How to help stop heart palpitations:

1. For digestive problems 
• Do intermittent fasting 
• Avoid refined carbs and vegetable oils (do healthy keto)

2. For alkalinity
Low potassium, high cortisol, or low HCL can cause your body to be too alkaline.
• Do healthy keto
• Take apple cider vinegar 

3. For low potassium 
What causes low potassium?
• Diuretics (low potassium, low vitamin D, high insulin)
• Diarrhea
• Antacids (take apple cider vinegar)
• Low dietary potassium (consume 7-10 cups of vegetables per day)
