    Thank you Doctor for this notes.

  10. Hi Dr., I’m sure you’re busy, but is there anyway you could give me any information on what to do about SVT’s and PVCS? I had an 10 hour Afib episode back in 2001. I have flutters and very short episodes since then. 2018/2019 I was having 10k PVCS in a 24hour period. It went away after I finally started taking motherwort with Hawthorn. I have struggled to keep it calm since then. It’s been better, but I still feel them most days. Please help me. Is Digitalis an option? Thank you.

    • Hi Dr. Sharma,
      Just found your website today, November 30, 2023. In short, I’ve been inflicted with episodes of arrhythmia every 1 to 2 weeks and they last from 5 to 7 days. When in an episode, the heart rhythm is irregular and low, typically 55 to 65 beats per minute. It allows me to live normally but I cannot do more demanding physical activities, it also affects me emotionally and drains my zest for living. The typical triggers are prolonged physical activity such as a fast walk of 5 to 7 kms, eating or drinking, stressful situations and lately they appear quite regularly every 6 to 8 days, usually in the afternoons without any apparent trigger.
      I’m 77 years old.
      I hope that this description gives you some info on what’s going on here, allowing you to come up with a suitable homeopathic tincture which may potentially heal this arrhythmia.
      Best regards, Vlad

  14. Hello Dr. ,
    I have been experiencing heart arrhythmias. They may be related to a blood pressure medication I’m taking, or perhaps even long Covid. I had it a year ago. The arrhythmias tend to happen in conjunction with my inhalation. The heart beats quickly four or five times then returns to normal rhythm for a moment, then repeats. I have 300 or 400 of them per day. I have gone to the cardiologist, taken several tests, but thus far no one can help. Is there a homeopathy that would be appropriate for this type of arrhythmia? Please advise. Thank you!
