SHR # 1761 :: BEST OF :: Roemheld Syndrome: The Gastric - Cardiac Connection

Roemheld Syndrome: The Gastric - Cardiac Connection

Guest:  Dr. Michael Smith

This show originally aired in 2010 and continues to get request for it to be re-air.  - Ludwig Roemheld was a physician in the late 1800's doing caloric intake research when he stumbled upon a critical link between the stomach and the heart. Roemheld Syndrome was taught to physician in the early to mid 1900's but is all but ignored by physicians today. Sufferers of RS are usually dismissed by their doctors as being hypochondriacs. Treating the heart and not the stomach in Roemheld Syndrome sufferers can be fatal.

I am a fellow Roemheld syndrome sufferer. I just bumped into this site and am so thankful there is a name for this. Mine started about 20 years ago and after thinking I was going to die I started taking a PPI which seemed to cure it. All my heart palps went away and for the past 20 years I have lived a full life. Sadly a few weeks ago it came back hard. I had to go to the hospital because of an afib attack. The most peculiar thing for me is that every time I swallow I get heart palps. At rest it is tolerable but not fun. When active it is horrible. If I don't swallow the rythum is fine. All these years I knew it was because of something in my upper stomach area. They put me on a heart med this week and I hate it. Any advice would be greatly appreciated. I'm hoping some new ideas have surfaced. Much appreciated. Peter. My email address is [email protected]

Balancing the iodine and magnesium is important too... I keep reading more and more about the benefits of higher doses of vitamin C in every thing to do with health... How does high dosages of Vitamin C work here .. as I know it aids digestion.. reduces pain.. boosts collagen.. the metabolistic byproduct of Vitamin C ( hydrogen peroxide) destroys most harmful bacteria.. detoxes.. etc..

The vagus nerve is quickly turning into the holy grail of homeostasis and overall health. It's being linked to almost every autoimmune and neurological disorder that has been identified.
One thing I'd like to add is for everyone to get a full blood panel and take a look at minerals and electrolytes first. I had tachycardia with gas after meals due to inflammation of the vagus nerve, which was linked to a pretty serious potassium deficiency. When I started taking potassium supplements, it stimulated the peristalsis needed to move the digestive tract, reduced gas and re-balanced the heart rhythm. Keep your minerals balanced first. Magnesium/calci um/potassium/so dium/chloride. Once I got these checked and balanced, it also gave me back energy and focus.
