Gandalf081User Since: Mar 2016Posts: 2Amazing post, this has worked for me after 14 years of the damn things constantly sometimes 30,000 a day, bigeminy, couplets the lot . I had resigned myself to this being a lifelong sentence for me ! This had recently progressed to episodes of sudden unnerving tacycardia and what i suspect was VT as Steve's initial post suggested it might. I had tried all types of supplements to no avail over the years including Magnesium with very limited improvement. I started supplementing with only 99mg of potassium 4 x daily with my usual magnesium and the pvcs have reduced massively within just a week. I have not been this pvc free for as long as i can remember.
It does all add up when i think about it, i have had stomach/bowel issues and 'looseness' for years as i have a gluten intolerance so have probably not been absorbing electrolytes properly. The doctors solution was just beta blockers which dont work for me. Though it sounds weird my heart actually feels more relaxed whereas it usually feels 'nervy' and ready to throw a PVC at all times. I'm going to increase the potassium slightly to see if i can eliminate them completely but will have to go easy as my blood pressure is borderline low naturally..

CuredPVCswithPotassiumUser Since: Apr 2018Posts: 1Ive had PVCs for 18 months off and on. One PVC every 20 -60 sec. Tried to figure it out on my own because doctors dont know jack and would say they are benign or would try to prescribe some BP meds. Something that feels like PVCs are not benign!

Started off taking 400-600 mg of potassium a day, 200mg with each meal, and it help a little. Bumped it up to 900 mg a day, 300mg with each meal and the PVCs are mostly gone! Will probably bump it up again to 1200mg a day.

Alcohol, caffeine, or a heavy meal speed up the blood flow and the potassium is filtered out/depleted more quickly.

Look for more nutrient rich foods with lots of potassium.

I AM NOT A DOCTOR SO BE CAREFUL WITH POTASSIUM. There is a lethal dose and you should research the problems from taking too much.

Also i am outside all day, everyday so i sweat a lot. Dont eat many veggies. I say this just to portray my lifestyle.

bfrocks30User Since: Apr 2018Posts: 26Just adding this to the thread not sure if anyone can get one of these tests or if there is one near you. Also who knows if its truly accurate but were a look

Imagine if you can actually identify this on the cellular level, we all could move on with our lives.

So helpful your research,i am sure i have electrolytes imbalance as my pvcs started after a long,years,condition of cronical digestive issues,including tones of laxative and often vomiting episodes.
Now i solved those problems,eating after a strict menu but i am sure i am lacking magnesium and potasiu,i started one week ago taking all the supllements you mentionez,they are less frequent but they still here
Please tell me if you know,once disturbed the electrolytes balance how long will take to put it back in track ?ever?
Thank you very much!!

I would like to mention that I found a cure for my PVC's. I read that taking Hawthorn helped most people having PVC's.
So after having PVC's for 10 years and using Atenolol to treat them, I started taking a STANDARDIZED Hawthorn Extract supplement (You may need to take more or less than what is the Suggested Use). After 4 to 6 weeks my PVC's were completely gone. I still get an occasional PVC that everyone gets, but not the constant runs experienced by PVC's sufferers. I hope this helps as it did for me...

I would like to try standardized Hawthorn Extract supplement. Can you recommend a brand?

Now Foods makes great products you could try that one possibly. I think the thing with Hawthorne is more useful if you have high blood pressure so it's masking the pvcs but certainly worth a try. I would focus on potassium and magnesium. B12 keeps coming up more and more as well through my research and on this forum.

I just found your thread and wonder how it’s still going for you. I have had PVCs for over 30 years. I had them under control I thought till I almost passed out today..ugh. I am using CBD oil no I am wondering if I need to add potassium. My blood pressure has elevated over the last year or so..
Thanks !,

PotassiumAddictUser Since: Jan 2020Posts: 1Winenut, you are right...and I am not exaggerating when I say you have probably saved lives with your post. I first started noticing my PVCs about a year ago. It was like a sudden spasm I could feel in my chest accompanied by a cough. At first I thought it was just my lungs being a little irritated, but over time I could start feeling this noticeable fluttering / skipping beat sensation, and that's when I knew it wasn't my lungs anymore.

Anyways long story short, went to get checked out at the hospital a couple months ago, had all the usual tests done (echo, ekg, chest xray, blood test) everything came back normal.

Shortly after I stumbled upon your post, figured out what the issue was on my own, the doctor later confirm they were most likely PVCs.

Been upping my potassium intake a lot since I discovered the issue, and in a matter of weeks I feel like practically a brand new person. PVCs are gone, even during strenuous exercise which is what used to trigger them quite a bit.

One tip I wanted to add which I found a pretty easy way to get a nice dose daily, is dried apricots (each 100g contains over 1000mg of potassium). I try to eat an assortment ofcourse (bananas, oranges, spinach, avocado, nuts, seeds, beans etc.), but a cup of dried apricots a day during your potassium loading phase to get your levels back to normal really helps a lot. Make sure to get the organic unsulfured kind.

Thanks a lot for sharing, god bless.

LloydPVCUser Since: Apr 2020Posts: 2Hi guys

I am 29 years old and been struggling with PVCs for nearly 4 years now. Lately been feeling them quite frequently after training but also during the day. I have gone for ECGs, blood tests and all came back normal, as it seems is the case for a lot of PVC sufferers. My cardiologist prescribed a 2.5mg Beta Blocker which has worked a bit but it has not solved by PVCs.

Brian I read your review above and I have starting using Magnesium and Potassium supplements 2 days ago and have stopped using the beta blocker about a week ago. I can start feeling a slight difference in my palpitation patterns but I want to know how long it took until your PVCs really started going away?

At the moment I am taking in 1000mg of potassium in the mornings through dried apricots as you said, as supplement with a 100mg potassium pill every 3 hours. I also take a Slogmag Magnesium fizzy in the morning.

Do I need to increase my Magnesium/Potassium intake? And how long before you started feeling a difference?
