I’d like to get some advice from you re. heart health. Last week I experienced chest pain that persisted overnight, so I went to the ER to make sure I wasn’t having a heart attack. They did all these tests –blood, EKG, etc. and it wasn’t my heart. I’m sure it was stress-related.
I don’t trust conventional doctors & was wondering what I should do next. I really don’t know who to turn to for advice.
I’m a young 64-year-old and up until now have been feeling great.
Last year you gave a talk up here in Saratoga Springs, and was impressed by your nature-based approach to health. I guess you meet one-on-one with clients, & I’d be willing to do that, if you think you could be of some help with this particular health question.
Thanks & I hope to hear from you soon,
Many thanks for writing in. Susun does offer private consultations by the phone, so that is always one option. These are booked thru the website at the following link: http://www.herbalmedicinehealing.com/store/store_results.php?SubCat=1034&Section=consultations
Susun also does a free health hotline every Tuesday from 7:30 – 9pm Eastern time on blogtalk radio. http://www.blogtalkradio.com/susunweed
However, she is traveling and is basically gone for all of March and we won’t be resuming that again until April 12. You are always welcome to call in for that – or if you can’t just let us know and we can field the question to Susun and let you know when she has a chance to answer it.
So … however, to understand, you are saying that you don’t believe this is actually anything health related, right? Stress can be helped with herbs… Probably one of the biggest ones that Susun talks about and I use personally when I’ve had a rapid heartbeat due to stress, anxiety, etc. would be motherwort tincture. (this has the added benefit of being suitable for heart health whether from actual physical reasons or stress related)
From Susun: “Motherwort is primarily an herb of the heart. Several species have sedative effects, decreasing muscle spasms and temporarily lowering blood pressure. Chinese studies found that extracts decrease clotting and the level of fat in the blood and can slow heart palpitations and rapid heartbeat.”
You can start off with ½ dropper to a full dropper and wait about 15 minutes to see how you feel… and if you need more, it’s fine… maybe take some every 15 minutes until you feel more grounded. Infusions are recommended always – for general health and especially nettles and oatstraw…
