If you look up and research the anxiety or heart medications that you are taking, you'll see that almost ALL of the meds attempt to block, or inhibit, either Hormones produced by your NeuroHormonal System, or Cytokines released from any cell of your body via your Immune System.
That means that the Pharmaceutical Companies target body chemicals that are over-produced; while the Medical Profession ignores this fact, and just tells their patients that it's their anxiety, which is a result of an over-active NeuroHormonal or Immune System!
The health risk is not from the palpitations, IMHO, because the heart is a very strong organ, which takes decades to fail. It's the excess body Hormones and Cytokines, which the Pharmaceutical Industry targets, that cause almost all of the damage to our organs, glands, nervous system, bones, muscles, etc.
I prefer a health specialist who understands the relationship between body chemicals and heart dysfunction.
I've spent the past few decades trying to find out my own personal triggers that cause my body's overproduction of body chemicals. It has been very complex, frustrating and difficult, since I have no medical training or education. As I uncover my own personal triggers, I have significantly improved, despite major life-threatening health problems.
But...... as the old say: The proof is in the pudding
. I'll find out if I am correct as I get past age 70 and head towards age 80.
Will I make 80?!
