Wed, May 8 9:53pm · Weaning off Metoprolol in Heart Rhythm Conditions

My husband is currently at a health retreat in San Diego. They are teaching him diet, exercise, nutrition, massage, colonics, emotional and mental release etc. This is all so great. He's acting like it's the first time he's heard these things. I've been talking about them for about 30 years in the marriage. I feel abit frustrated with his dissociation from my wisdom, but what the hell. I'm so glad he is finally hearing holistic health.

One of the Mayo Clinic cardiology team members who took care of me three years ago said something very useful. If I experience pain in the heart area (which I rarely do), it means the heart muscle is not getting enough oxygen and to take some deep breaths. I do this and it works well. I was wondering if this would also help with palpitations. I have some of these but not many, and I just tell my heart to calm down. I don't think they are that bothersome in my case.

My cardiologist said the vitamins were fine with Eliquis and metoprolol.

Most drs aren't into supplements, with the exception of magnesium for heart issues. Yes, I take metoprolol. I slows my heart rate which helps me feel better. That's about all my cardiologist recommends at this time, unless I want open heart surgery where they replace the heart valve, ablation the heart and put me on alot of meds. No thanks. I feel well enough for a 70+ year old. Also, the open heart idea would only maybe work and for maybe a few years. Good grief. No thanks.

I take 3 (500mg) vit C with three meals daily. Also with VitC take HeartBeat Cardiovascular support from Health Food store. Magn, potassium in morning with first VitC. I take metoprol to slow heart rate due to afib and leaky heart valve. Why do you want to go off of metoprol?

Yes, I agree with you. We pay the price of poor health for our wealth of owning everything we possibly can. When last visiting family in LA, I was bemused by the number of autos everywhere. Few visible people, but autos.

If you can afford it, massage therapy and change your diet…cut out sugar and lower salt. Eat simply. 80% fresh fruits and vegs.
