Natural Solutions to Sinus Tachycardia

  This post may contain affiliate links

Picture this: Your heart, racing as if it’s sprinting down a track, might actually be waving a red flag, signaling something’s amiss. We’ve all felt it — that quickening heartbeat during a morning jog, on a sweltering hot day, or in a moment of anxiety. This is sinus tachycardia at work. 

While the occasional heart rate spike is par for the course, a continuously fast beat could be your body’s way of sounding the alarm, hinting that something’s not quite right.

What is Sinus Tachycardia?

Imagine your heart as an efficient timekeeper. Under normal circumstances, it ticks along at a steady rhythm — somewhere between 60 to 100 beats per minute, thanks to the sinus node, your heart’s built-in pacemaker.

But what happens when this timekeeper starts ticking faster? When your heart beats over 100 times a minute, that’s sinus tachycardia. It’s as if your heart’s internal clock is nudging it to pick up the pace. This acceleration can spring from various triggers — an invigorating workout, a surge of emotion, or a bout of stress.

This rapid beating, though faster, still follows a regular rhythm. It’s your heart’s adaptive response, meeting your body’s immediate needs, whether for more energy or to combat stress.

However, a constantly racing heart warrants a closer look. It’s your heart’s way of telling you it’s possibly overexerting. In essence, sinus tachycardia is your heart shifting gears. It’s a normal response to certain situations, but enduring fast beats call for a check-up. Tuning into this helps us understand the messages our hearts are sending.

What Causes Sinus Tachycardia?

Various factors can kick your heart rate into high gear:

  • Physical Exertion: Exercise naturally speeds up your heart to boost blood and oxygen flow.
  • Emotional Turmoil: Anxiety or stress can ramp up your heart rate.
  • Health Conditions: Issues like fever, dehydration, or thyroid imbalances can accelerate your heartbeat.
  • Caffeine and Alcohol: High intake of these can quicken your pulse.
  • Medications: Many drugs, such as those for conditions like asthma or depression, can raise your heart rate.
  • Nervous System Imbalance: Challenges with the vagus nerve or dysautonomic disorders might lead to a fast heart rate.
  • Dietary Reactions: Sensitivities to foods or additives, like gluten or sugar, can increase heart rate.
  • Environmental Toxins: Mold or heavy metal exposure can also cause a rapid heartbeat.
  • Thyroid disorders: Typically, hyperthyroidism, or overactive thyroid can lead to tachycardia. There is a cause fo hyperthyroidism, and we help you find it. 

What Can I Do to Prevent Sinus Tachycardia?

Preventing sinus tachycardia naturally is about living a healthy lifestyle. Here’s how you can follow the Eat Well, Live Well, Think Well philosophy:

  • Diet: Choose a diet full of organic vegetables, wild seafood, and nutrient-rich seeds. Avoid foods that aren’t so good for your heart, like gluten, GMOs, and sugars.
  • Exercise: Regular exercise is great for your heart. If you can, exercise outside where you can enjoy natural light, rather than in a gym with artificial lighting.
  • Sunlight Exposure: Getting moderate sunlight is good for your heart. Sunlight gives you Vitamin D and nitric oxide, both of which are helpful for heart health.
  • Quality Sleep: Make sure you get enough sleep every night. A good sleep pattern helps keep your heart beating regularly.
  • Stress Reduction: Reducing stress is important for your heart. Practices like meditation and yoga can help calm your mind and reduce stress.
  • Chiropractic Care: Taking care of your spine through chiropractic care can also benefit your nervous system and help prevent irregular heartbeats.
  • Reducing Toxic Load: Try to reduce the toxins you’re exposed to in your daily life, from the products you use to the medications you take. It’s important to be aware of the toxins in your environment – test when you can, instead of guessing.

By following these tips, you can take charge of your heart health and help prevent sinus tachycardia. Remember, a healthy lifestyle is key to keeping your heart beating at a steady, healthy pace.

About Dr. Lauren Lattanza NMD, FACC

Dr. Lattanza Office Visit with Patient

As a Naturopathic Physician, I am trained to treat the whole person and get to the root cause of disease.

I went to Arizona State University where I graduated with a bachelor’s degree in psychology with a depth in physiology and minor in Spanish. After my undergraduate degree I was working on prerequisite classes towards medical school, which is when I came to learn that my values identified best with the principles of naturopathic medicine. I knew that I wanted to help patients identify the causes of disease and be able to offer treatments which would improve their health rather than simply treating symptoms.

I dedicated the next 4 years to the Southwest College of Naturopathic Medicine in Tempe, Arizona where I attained my Doctorate of Naturopathic Medicine. I served as Class President all 4 years, Board of Trustees – Student Trustee, spoke as the Club President for our branch of Toastmasters, and was voted by my peers and attending physicians to earn the Outstanding Leadership Award for the Class of 2020. Throughout medical school I took it upon myself to work alongside MDs, DOs, chiropractors, and functional medicine practitioners in addition to naturopathic physicians.

As a Spanish speaking student, I was able to volunteer with community clinics around Phoenix and provide free healthcare to low-income families. Due to this combined exposure, I came to find my passion in treating cardiometabolic and digestive disorders that are all too common, yet largely preventable. I took the opportunity to learn the broad spectrum of healthcare so I can ensure that I am able to provide my patients with the best options.
