I was diagnosed with SVT at the age of only 5 years old. I went to sick kids hospital in Toronto, Ontario and they recommended I get an ablation done to my heart. However the risks were that I would have pacemaker the rest of my life if something goes wrong. I was put on atenolol to help with my heart rate but it was causing me to have other side effects. I was on atenolol from 1999-2007. In 2007 my parents did research in to alternative medicine and we found Traditional Chinese Medicine. I can say that TCM changed my life for the better by doing herbal treatment and acupuncture. It didn't happen over night but within 2-3 years I was off atenolol and I no longer suffer from heart palpitations. I'm now 27 years old and my heart feels normal. I also recommend the herbal remedy called salvtonic that is also beneficial for the heart and will help with your palpitations. I advise people on here to look in to TCM because it will change your life. You may have to pay out of your own pocket unless you have coverage but I promise you it will benefit you. I hope this helps because I know how difficult it is to live with a heart arrhythmia.
