Premature Ventricular Contractions (PVC’s)

heartbeats that start in one of the four chambers. Although having PVC’s are usually harmless, if you gain symptoms from them it should be treated to prevent the risk of developing other issues/diseases. Our Holistic Cardiologist in Nassau County has developed ways to treat PVC if it is necessary. If you are looking for ways to decrease your PVC symptoms and reduce the risk of developing other heart issues, the Integrative Cardiology Center of Long Island is the place you should go!

Common  Symptoms:

Someone who experiences PVC’s may describe the feeling like their heart skipping a beat. In reality, though, your heart is actually getting an extra beat rather than skipping one. At times they can be symptomless, but if you have any of the signs listed below, you should seek out  the help of a Holistic Cardiologist in Nassau County:

  • Dizziness
  • Weakness
  • Skipped beats or missed beats
  • Fluttering of heartbeat
  • Pounding or jumping of heartbeat  

Triggers:

These PVC’s can sometimes happen for no reason, but there are certain triggers that are known to cause them to occur, such as,

  • Alcohol
  • Drugs
  • Caffeine, tobacco, anxiety
  • High blood pressure
  • Certain medications including decongestants and antihistamines
