Magnesium Question

Hi Everyone,  I am a member of the heart rythm forum.   I have been having a
very rough time dealing with the anxiety of my heart pvc's.    The other day
I went for my stress test and had an anxiety attack.  I take no meds for my
heart issues or anxiety.     I think I need help, it consumes my live,  I think
about my heart all day long.     I obsess.  I have been reading alot of about
natural remedies for anxiety.  I have read that magnesium is a natural calmer
and may help anxiety.  My cardio told me at my follow up in two weeks he
will put me up prophanol for palps and anxiety, I would rather go natural
but I dont know if I should give magnesium a try, any opinions

I doubt magnesium alone will calm your anxiety, but it does relax the heart muscle.  Most Americans, particularly women, lack magnesium for three reasons:  the overindulgence in sodas, which leech magnesium from the body; the over consumption of calcium, particularly in dairy, which also leeches magnesium out of the body; and the underconsumption of green vegetables like collards and kale and such.  I would recommend that if you want to pursue this without medication to see a naturopath or holistic nutritionist, who can help you balance your diet and suggest a combination of remedies that might help, such as hawthorn, which relaxes the heart muscle.  Otherwise, you're kind of stuck with drugs.
