  12. Alisha Ledesma says:

    Good Evening,

    Thank you for the information in this article. I am having heart palpitations due to perhaps a Babesia infection I believe, due to tick bites. Which has led to some thyroid issues as well as anemia, I believe. I also have high folate levels on blood tests. I am very confused as to which of these issues are causing my heart palpitations or maybe combination of things. The palpitations sometimes are just hard beats at regular rate, other times, they are high rates over 100 while resting. Any suggestions?

    Thank you!

      My mother has been experiencing an elevated heart rate of about 100- 150 bpm for the past week or so. She is on various allopathic medicines as well as homeopathic medicines from her homeopathic physician. She cannot get another appointment for a while. Can you please tell me what I should give her. She has Afib but her irregular/ skipped beats have improved since taking the homeopathy but she is still getting the palpitations. I am trying to avoid taking her to the hospital if I can. Her doctor is recommending a heart ablation and she really doesn’t want surgery. Please help.
