Tachycardia and The Human Body

tachycardia heart racing hypnosis therapy

Therapeutic Hypnosis is a method to reduce tachycardia symptoms.

Tachycardia (also called tachyarrhythmia) is a heart rate that exceeds the normal resting rate.  When the heart beats excessively or rapidly, the heart pumps less efficiently and provides less blood flow to the rest of the body including the heart itself.  The increased heart rate also leads to increased work and oxygen demand by the heart.  In general, tachycardia is not good for the body as a whole.

Some people with tachycardia have no symptoms and the condition is only discovered during a physical examination or with an EKG.

Symptoms of Tachycardia

• Dizziness
• Shortness of breath
• Lightheadedness
• Rapid pulse rate
• Heart palpitations
• Chest pain
• Fainting

Tachycardia Causes

Tachycardia is caused by something that disrupts the normal electrical impulses that control the rate of your heart’s pumping action.  Factors that contribute include:

• Anemia
• Exercise
• Stress
• High blood pressure
• Smoking
• Drinking too much caffeine
• Alcohol abuse
• Drug abuse

Therapeutic hypnosis and tachycardia

After consulting with your doctor, therapeutic hypnosis can help lead the body toward relaxing into a more normal rhythm.  By getting the causes of tachycardia under control (anemia, exercise,  stress, high blood pressure, smoking, caffeine addiction, alcohol/drug abuse) the body feels more free to enter into a healing, then healthy state.

Tachycardia, Stress and Prescription Medication

Stress can be a powerful force that plays into the causes listed above.  Hypnosis as a therapy (hypnotherapy) is a prescription-free method many clients with tachycardia explore after being first examined by their doctor and discussing it with them.

We’ve helped many clients avoid or reduce prescription medication by helping their minds to relax and focus.  While a hypnotherapist is not someone that advises on medications, we work with you with the oversight of your doctor to help your body enter into a state where healing is possible.

See yourself in a whole new light, allow others to see the glow within you, feel more relaxed around others and feel great from the inside out — its all possible using hypnosis.  Meridian Peak Hypnotherapists craft a custom hypnosis plan that get you feeling better.  99% of our clients report a significant change in how they feel after the first visit.

Hypnosis is proven more effective than traditional counseling

In a study in American Health Magazine, hypnosis and hypnotherapy have a 93% success rate compared with lower results from other methods of therapy which require far more sessions.  Click here to learn more about hypnosis and its high success rate.
