When I answered you, "Idiopathic Heart Rhythm problems and Blood Pressure problems are usually the result of an over-production of hormones, especially from the adrenal glands
.", I was referring to the hormones of the adrenal glands, not the thyroid.

Most of the time doctors cannot figure out exactly why someone's heart does not beat correctly, or why their patient's blood pressure runs too high; no matter how many tests they do. An example of this is number of members of HealthBoards who have had numerous tests and still don't have any answers. It just shows the vast complexities of our bodies and metabolism.
However..... Medical science has already figured out some of the hormones that cause higher blood pressure and heart rhythm problems. For instance, you are currently taking propanolol, a beta blocker, which blocks hormones from your adrenal glands
Sometimes it takes more than one medication to treat heart rhythm/beat problems, or high blood pressure.
im not familiar with those medications but i did read about calcium channel blocker. are those better than beta blocker and has same purpose? or is it for some specific condition?
Your doctor might be able to answer your questions about your medications far better than your fellow patients, here on HealthBoards.
In my case, I have been able to greatly improve my own problems with tachycardia and an irregular heartbeat thru taking digoxin, exercise, an appropriate diet and avoiding irritants and stimulants.
In my opinion, most patients with erratic heartbeats or high blood pressure could enjoy significant improvements to their health by being on a correct diet that is appropriate for their own unique metabolism. Most so-called healthy diets are not really healthy, IMHO. They are one size fits all and don't address a individual's metabolism dysfunction.
The main reason that I initially responded to your questions was to tell you that I did not think that a fast, irregular heartbeat is healthy over time. It is not good for a heart to be constantly under stress, even if a doctors says that it is nothing to worry about. Many doctors tell their patients not to worry about heart beat problems, mainly because the doctor doesn't know what to do about the problem.
Take care, and best of health!
