Alcohol reaction

Posted by Holger [1547.74] on January 25, 2004 at 05:17:33:

Hi
By now I have had 4 mag IV's and my heart seems to be beating like a swiss wath , no skips and every beat feels solid to me it feels just perfect. But waking up in the morning for some reason I can feel my heart beating and do not feel 100% relaxed. Especially after a few glasses of wine my heart would be racing after i wake up which I can easily slow down by deep breathing. I just feel like that there is something else that needs a fine tune.]
Dr. Stoll What do you think
Thanks Holger

Holger, I suspect that the sulfites in the wine are responsible for your racing ticker. Try to find a sulfite-free wine to drink instead.

Hi Holger,

Wait, I'm not clear about what is happening. Do you mean that you drink wine in the evening, and then the next morning you feel the heart beating strong when you wake up? If this is the case, that is a good clue that the alcohol is causing increased stress in your body. You know, alcohol is one of the more refined carbohydrates there is and you might consider giving it up.

I'm probably not going to get the terminology perfect here, but I learned something when I was trying to resolve my own problem with palpitations. I read that when a person wakes up, the hormone levels (or maybe it's the sympathetic nervous system?) becomes more active for a short while. I've noticed this is true, that even if I take a nap, when wake up sometimes I'll have that little bit of heart palpitations (it is a sympathetic NS reaction) when I wake up. Since I know it's normal, I don't worry about it but just continue to do things to decrease my stress levels in life (I do the Three-Legged Stool and keep working on relaxation).

Hope this helps. Maybe someone knows a more technical explanation.

Best wishes,
Jan DeCourtney, CMT

Thanks, Holger.

Listen to Happygal and June One.

If this were me, I would give up the alcohol for at least 3 months and then let us know how you are doing.

Holger,

In my opinion, it is the alcohol that is causing you to wake up to a fast heartbeat. Same thing used to happen to me when I drank too much wine.

Also you should know that alcohol depletes the body's mineral stores including magnesium.
