daveloper80 Posted October 18, 2013 Share Posted October 18, 2013 Secretly, my true intention on trying Whole 30 is to reduce the number of what I believe are PVC (premature contractions of your heart). My reason for this is because they are the #1 trigger for my panic disorder (my ultimate goal is to control these through diet and exercise but for now I am medicated) and although it was not specifically listed as one of the medical ailments Whole30 can help treat, I have found that since about day 4 or 5 they have decreased drastically. I haven't said anything until I just read on a facebook post that it helped someone else with the same issue. So I am curious if there is anyone else on here who has experienced this? Were you able to identify what was triggering them? So far through reintroduction they have not come back. I get about 1 per day, maybe a couple while I am exercising, especially at the start but still far less than normal. Part of me has always thought they were related to blood pressure or weight because at times I weighed less I would have fewer events. I know the obvious answer is "go see your doctor" which is planned but just to clear that up - I believe they are PVCs but in the past 3 years I have had about 5 EKGs, a sonogram and a holter monitor to try and figure out exactly what they are. unlike a lot of people I don't get them all the time. The doctors I have seen have put no restrictions on activity or diet for me. Before whole 30 I would notice about 5 per day (and before I got treatment for panic attacks there would be days where I would be aware of every single beat my heart would pump) but there could be days with none and days with more but I could never get anything to show up on an EKG. So its not confirmed but based on other people's experiences and descriptions that is what I believe they are. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
