    Re: Heart racing after bending over

    My husband reckons his heart races when I bend over?

    Actually, I've had this and lots of other unpleasant heart symptoms where my head pulses (and entire body) and simply getting up makes my heart race. I've had my ticker checked over thoroughly and it's all down to stress hormones innit. Also, chocolate (stimulants) are an issue - especially with a sensitised system.

    Best thing I ever did was to lay off the stimulants and to practice deep breathing which kicks in the parasympathetic response (calming) - which turns off the fight or flight (sympathetic nervous response)

    I can drop my heart rate from 'racing like a bugger' to normal in under a minute now.

    Haha! Thanks so much.

    Stimulants is definitely something I need to avoid. I donít do caffeine but sugar, chocolate etc is very much in my diet!!

    Time to focus on eating clean perhaps instead of anxious thoughts... if only....haha
