6 Natural Ways to Stop PVCs (Premature Ventricular Contractions)

In my days of active practice, one of the most common consultations I used to have was with patients who came in because they didn’t feel like their hearts were beating properly anymore. Some described skipped beats. Others, flutter and flip-flop sensations.

Almost all of these patients were suffering from a common type of arrhythmia called premature ventricular contractions, or PVCs.

Most people, including myself, experience PVCs at some point in their lives—and in most cases, PVCs are completely benign. Still, that doesn’t stop them from being a source of tremendous fear and anxiety.

Fortunately, there are steps you can take to help minimize or even stop PVCs. Here’s how I would approach the problem.

What to Do if You Think PVCs May Be Your Problem

Even though most PVCs turn out to be harmless, it’s always best to have your symptoms checked out. Under certain circumstances, PVCs do have the potential to cause potentially lethal ventricular tachycardias—so it’s important for you to know if you have that risk.

The first thing you can expect your doctor to do is ask you to wear a Holter monitor for 24 hours to see how frequent your PVCs are. You’ll probably also be asked to keep a journal of what you do over that time, so your doctor can see if there are any specific activities or type of events (an argument, maybe) that cause the PVCs to flare up.

It’s also likely that you’ll be asked to have an echocardiogram so your doctor can look at the size and shape of your heart and assess how well the valves are functioning. If those things all look normal—and you have no other underlying disease—you’ll probably be given a clean bill of health.

6 Ways You Can Stop or Reduce PVCs

Even though it’s reassuring to hear a cardiologist say your heart is fine, PVCs can still be bothersome. Here are some of the things I’ve found effective for calming and rebalancing the body and heart, and stopping these unwanted beats.

Clean up your diet.

The first thing you should do is get rid of the Unholy Trinity of sugar, caffeine, and alcohol. Alcohol, especially, has a well-documented connection with arrhythmias, and sugar and caffeine are both stimulants that get the heart going, as opposed to helping it relax. All of these can aggravate PVCs.

Second, give up processed and packaged foods, which are full of preservatives and flavor enhancers like monosodium glutamate (MSG). These also can trigger PVCs. Instead, focus on nutrient-rich, high-vibrational whole foods—and go organic if you can, to avoid exposure to pesticide residues. (Find out which foods are most essential to buy organic.)

3 Foods that Cause Heart Palpitations

Keep a food diary.

Writing down what you eat and how your PVCs feel for the hours afterward can also be a useful tool. If you find that you’re sensitive to spicy foods, for example, you may benefit from toning down your meal planning.

Take a break from your electronic devices.

As much as we love our smart phones, tablets, and other electronic devices, the EMF they emit can affect the heart rhythm and supercharge the part of our brain that controls the fight-or-flight response. This makes them a potential trigger for PVCs.

I know that reducing EMF exposure in this day and age is a big ask, so simply do the best you can. Keep calls short, and use speakerphone if appropriate. Most of all, remove any electronics from your bedroom—especially cordless phones and baby monitors.

Put your bare feet on the ground.

Earthing is a fantastic way to treat PVCs because it rebalances the autonomic nervous system. This helps calm the fight-or-flight response, which has a soothing effect on the heart. It also helps reduce cortisol levelswhich further relaxes and balances the body’s natural rhythms.

Make sure your heart is adequately nourished.

If you’re open to trying nutritional supplements as a way to reduce or stop your PVCs, many people have good luck with CoQ10, fish oil, and magnesiumThe anti-inflammatory properties of fish oil have an overall calming effect on the cardiovascular system, while CoQ10 and magnesium support energy production. Magnesium also plays a crucial role in regulating the heartbeat.

Look inside for unexpressed or unacknowledged emotions.

Finally, spend some quiet time with yourself, reflecting on whether you’re living in a way that’s true to who you are. Oftentimes, a benign problem like PVCs isn’t so much a problem as it is a message from your intuition that you’re falling out of alignment with what you really want and need in life. Recognizing those issues and giving them a voice can not only help stop PVCs, but help prevent much larger problems down the road.

    I found out about a year and a half ago and I’m still trying to get it under control.
    For me nighttime is rough because it’s an effort to slow them down. I feel like I’m going to have a heartattack or something and they actually make me feel sick to my stomach.
    Also, stress is a big trigger for me. When on vacation etc I’m more relaxed. When something stresses me out I feel them alot more.
    I’m still researching PVC and am figuring out how to live with them.
    I would recommend routine visits to a cardiologist as I do.. my next one is in November.

    Hey to you both. I have had PVCs for years now and im 33 years old. Ive had them since I was 22 years old. The only thing I have found that triggers mine are sodas and stress. I had cut all of this out and only had a PVC few times a month. Here lately i have been drinking tea and coke and they are coming 10 xs a day. Try cutting out caffiene and do not over eat and see how that goes. I know it is scary because they still scare me at times but if your heart has checked out good then i would life style change and see how it goes.

    I recently was diagnosed as well with PVC’s. I had for 10 years been told I had MVP, which was incorrect. I was treated with a beta blocker. This has made my conditions worse. I had been seeking some natural supplements to help myself and finally found this website, which is positive and offers aid. One question I do have is what affect white noise in the office has on PVC’s. I was recently moved to a floor with the white noise and my condition worsened.

  5. HeartMD Editor

    on September 12, 2017 at 11:47 am

    Hi Michelle,

    White noise can be a stimulant that adversely affects heart rate variability (HRV). Anything that accelerates HRV needs to be curtailed. You might want to consider trying Grounding/Earthing as it helps to support healthy HRV. You can learn more about it here.

    I am 80 and just found out I have PVC’s. I got arrhythmia 5 yrs ago then 2 weeks ago. When. Poor pressure gets too high I get P C. I thought sugar might be causing this. I had cheesecake that day and a Reeses egg. I watch sweets now. I am a good weight and walk everyday. Because my age I have to take blood thinner. I’m going to add fish oil and magnesium like article advised.

    My situation was getting out of hand as I got older. I began to research the best doctors, including Dr. Sinatra, and got wisdom from each. My incidents went down to nothing. First of all, eliminate sugar, caffeine, alcohol. If you drink at all, be hydrated. Eat a healthy diet, mostly plant based, though I still have wild salmon, grass_fed beef, some chicken. Eat organic. Try Dr. Hyman’s ‘pegan diet.’ Here are the supplements I take that have reduced my PVC’s to nothing. 2-3 g (high DHA) fish oil, L-Carnitine 2x a day, taurine 2x a day, CoQ10 daily, magnesium at least 400 mg a day (citrate, and glycinate). It takes almost two months for it to fully kick in. Remember, these are not drugs but a natural way to beat it. It works so well you will be thanking God!

    Is a transthoracic echo with bubble study a safe test?

  15. HeartMD Editor

    on October 13, 2017 at 2:52 pm

    Hi Elaine,

    A transthoracic echo with a bubble study is a mildly invasive test and should not have complications. It offers more info than a standard echocardiogram. Be sure to discuss all the risks and benefits with your doctor.

    I’m 55 have MVP and have been treated with atenelol for 30 years and felt great until about 3 years ago and now get skipped beats first thing in AM then they ease off until later in the afternoon and evening… they start coming back about 3 pm everyday and last into the evening. They come like clockwork…what could this be? I’m taking magnesium and multivitamin. I do have some digestive issues as well…could this be adrenal related? If so, what to do?
    Thanks for your help!

    My PVCS come and go which drives me crazy. I can be fine for hours and at times days and all of a sudden wham! They start. But its weird because they will not last that long. If i get them my remedy is to move from position or stand up. Doing some sort of physical activity will make them go away. I wish I knew what caused them. Has anyone taking or done something to make them go away?

  21. HeartMD Editor

    on November 6, 2017 at 12:27 pm

    Hi Mercy,
    It’s a good idea to omit caffeine sugar and any foods that trigger PVCs. Try to connect with mother earth and ground as much as possible by walking barefoot on the grass, beach or concrete. You can learn more about Earthing here. Sometimes simple things like avoidance of certain foods, reduction in emotional turmoil, and Earthing has helped some of Dr. Sinatra’s patients. If your echo cardiogram is normal and there is no disease or pathology in the heart having PVCs can be a normal situation.

    I discovered I have pvc since I was a like 11 or 12, I started observing when I clocked 15years old and now I am 28, I have been living with this flip flops almost all my life, comes and goes, when it comes, I feel like it’s over am gone, and the next hour am alrght, sometimes it happens sharp, twice or thrice a day that I really feel afraid, sometimes it flutters softly, truth is, I have not been monitoring my intake yet, I eat anything and drink alcohol and smoke occasionally, well I sometimes forget I have them, and sometimes I get them every day, when I relax take suppliments eat good and laugh, I hardly have them, but when I go through daily stress, emotionally mentally and physically, it really troubles me, I try to stay out of stress, I take no drugs for it. Only regular suppliments, I think I’ll try fish oil and better blockers and observe… I haven’t been to the hospital and I didn’t tell any of my family I have PVC, it’s been my Greatest secret.

    How do you fall asleep with these PVC’s? WOW! Have had the 35+ yrs and all was fine until my doctor (new doctor) decides my meds should be 1x a day 50 mg instead of 2x a day 25mg as prescribed by my heart doctor 35 yrs ago. What a mistake! This happened once before and I forgot about that and it took several months to get it all back under control, and by under control I mean NO PVC’s at least none I can feel. So now I stay awake for days which makes it all worse its terrible ABSOLUTELY TERRIBLE, like now its 4:45 am no sleep tonight,,,, I fell for all with this horrible condition!!!

    I am 53 and i believe im starting to go thru peri menopause….2 weeks ago i started to feel a flutter in my throat which i thought was nothing and didnt worry about. Thought it might be my thyroid Palpating as i i take synthroid. But when it continued into the next day and the and now it’s been 2 weeks. They occur at different times…when im resting or active, i am a dancer and group fitness instructor. So i am continually elevating my HR…but my hr and bloodpressure are excellent. I thought it might be hormone related but my doctor immediately shut that down. I had blood work done and wore a holter monitor for 24 hours. So far nothing indicating anything structural….but its continued and gotten a little worse. Now instead of the flutter in my throat i actually feel it in the heart muscle like its flipping or clenching. I also have an immediate feeling of fear and a rush like flight flight symptom. I also had 3 (nsvt) in a row. Im scared. Dont know what to do or whete to find answers….my Dr. Is not giving me any answers and seems completely unconcerned….i want to move forward with all the tests to rule out structural issues. If all comes back clear should i pursue a hormone panel and endocrinologist? I cant continue on like this with no answers especially in my line of work. I dont consume any caffeine alcohol or sugared foods. Please any help suggestions from the Dr. Anyone will be greatly appreciated.

    I have a Shatzki’s ring which causes me to have problems belching, etc. I’ve found that trapped gas aggravates my pvc’s and they subside when I belch. Also, changing position when lying down helps.

    For everyone concerned about PVC’s…. I am 63 years old and have had PVC’s since my late 20’s. My father also has them, he is alive and well and 85! Here’s what I’ve learned.
    1) They will occur at anytime and anywhere. Trying to determine the actual cause is futile.
    2) If you want to ‘limit’ them, get some exercise, limit your caffeine and Alcohol, and try to stop stressing about it.
    3) If you are really concerned, get your heart stress tested and ensure there are no underlying issues. If there are none, try not to worry about them. They will occur, but they ARE benign.
    4) Get a physical EVERY year to ensure there continues to be no underlying issues. If none, you are fine.
    I will say they have always bothered me and sometimes really does give you a sense of doom. But if you are otherwise healthy, they are just a part of your life and try not to stress about them. You will limit them if you take some of my advice. Sometimes I don’t have them for days, other days I have 3 -4 PVC’s a day (usually from lack of exercise, caffience, or alcohol related I’ve found). Good Luck!

    I am 74 years old. I have AFIB , PVC’s and PAC’s. Two weeks ago I was in ER and then admitted for observation. During the hour that I was having my oxygen measured, it went below 90 three times. I ask the ER Dr why is my oxygen level dropping and he said good question. I am on Sotalol 120 mg twice a day, Eliquis 5 mg twice a day Furosemide 40 mg once a day, losartan potassium 100 mg once a day, amlodipine once a day. potassium CL 10 MEG, twice a day and Cartia XT 120 mg once a day. I have had an irregular heart since my early 20’s. I have had one ablation for the sinus node. Dr wants to do an ablation for afib, but it will be a 6 hour procedure because of my enlarged heart. I have more of the PVC and PAC in the afternoon and night. I take my heart medicine in the morning and I think it wears off by afternoon. I know I have over 3 PVC and PAC a minute. Dr says it won’t kill me, but I was having a lot of them and I went into AFIB with RVR. I feel like they triggered it. Can you give me any suggestions? I am thinking about trying Magnesium.

    Omg, I have about 10per minute. I had a stress test and at one point I had 2 in a row . All labs are good and I do take levothyroxine with all thyroid tests results wnl. Right now I take no other meds. I drink one cup of coffee daily now. I am trying to get rid of all caffeine. Today I am resting and I have never had so many PVC’s. Waiting to see cardiologist and I am kind of nervous today. I am 64. Maybe just discussing with others will help relieve some f my anxiety!

    This is very informative site. People’s experiences provide a lot of real information. I have PVCs at age of 61 years which scares but now I think might having these PVCs long ago when was quite young but at that time no awareness. I was taking Anderal beta blocker some 25 years ago with other medicines for anxiety etc. Now after having high bp started Anderal with other high bp medicines which lowered bp as well as heart rate to 50 – 51 pulse in a minutes. I tried to withdraw from Inderal but it was quite difficult and killing myself but finally I came out from Inderal after taking other anxiety medicines like Paroxa 20mg. Now on this PVC when doctors suggest to take Inderal. I scare and ask them for medicones.but not a beta blocker bcz these doctors give beta blockers first and when heart rate slows down they ask to stop or lower the dose but they are totally unaware that how much is difficult withdrawing from Inderal.

    I think the best way to control PVCs be naturally and share experiences so people can benefit bcz parient is the best narrater and doctors shpuld believe.

    Hello Everyone, I’m 34 years of age and just staring experiencing pvc’s about 6 months ago, when I decreased my anti anxiety medication. They are a nightmare! I have had the halti & event monitor, both registered the pvc’s. They sometimes last for hours, and then other times nothing for weeks, I am really afraid I will have a heart attack. I have two young son’s and I’m constantly worried I’m going to drop dead. I have researched, and I have gone to my doctor but still, it is just such a horrible feeling, I’m sorry to all who experience this. Take care

    PVC’s ARE NOT BENIGN when they cross a threshold in terms of percentage of total beats in a day. if you have a heavy burden of PVC’s it can contribute to heart failure. Get your PVC’s checked out, and make sure it’s by a cardiologist who takes them seriously and doesn’t just offer you reassurance and medicine.

  36. HeartMD Editor

    on April 12, 2018 at 9:23 am

    Dear Mary,

    Continue to work with your cardiologist as ablation could be a solution. On a positive note, taking magnesium may also help as it can have a nice calming effect on cardiac arrhythmia.

    Mine came on suddenly back in 2006 – I was sitting at my desk and it just felt like the wind was being taken away, no pain, no dizziness, but i noticed something was a off and it felt likeIt had to do with my breathing and lungs on my breathing. Obviously at that point I’m starting to panic because I have no idea what’s going on. I call the doctor right away went in and was diagnosed anxiety. I wasn’t sure that was it, i’m pretty laid back and calm, but I guess it could have been internal emotions. After about 6 months I was still having them. I thought it might also be exercised induced ( I do play racquetball competitively) but that didn’t “make” the PVC’s happen with any regularity. I realized I should see a cardiologist but that scared me even more but I did. They ran every test Imaginable except for an angiogram. I did have a 3-D image taken with nothing evident that there were any blockages things seemed to be fine . Yes, that was a relief but it didn’t help. It’s frustrating and discouraging bcuz you know something’s going on but no one can find anything. They put me on some beta blockers and a combination of anxiety medication – all extremely low dose. I do have weight issues, I’ve always been athletic but my weight is way too high (i realize that might be the culprit as well). in 2010 I had the lap band surgery to lose weight, I dropped about 100 pounds and felt great. At the time of the surgery, they found I had a hiatal hernia and they said it was pretty bad, they patched it up during the surgery and I’ve got to say, the PVC went down to a bare minimum. This was right after the surgery, they seemed to have disappeared. This lasted for about 6 or 7 years with very minimal PVC’s but I started to slowly gain some (not all) of the weight back. I’ve had a couple of doctors kind of agree with me that could have contributed to the PVC’s but there’s no proof that the hernia along with the weight was the cause. As of a week or two ago, i’m starting to feel what i would describe as a “harder” beat, it doesn’t feel like a skipped beat, just more intense. because this feels different, the fear sets in again. These episodes seem to occur when my body feels cold, but not sure, they seem to happen when i’m awake or in a light sleep (probably cuz i’m thinking about them too much). As others have said before me, these posts are comforting knowing that most of you or many of you have had these issues for a very long time. For me it’s been about 12 years and that feels like a very long time to me, but some of you have had them much longer than I have. I do like the stress free approach, although it’s very easy to say “be stress free” it’s a lot harder to make happen. I appreciate all your experiences and sharing, it does help calm me. Now I’ve got to go back and lose the weight again. Good luck to all of you and God Bless!

    Hi there!
    Was diagnosed with PVCs 9 years ago when I was in hormonal flux between giving birth / weaning child / starting menstruation again. Cardiologist and Endocrinologist said I checked out. Just something to “get use to”. Over the past 9 years they have come back intermittently, but not really bad until 3 months ago. Now they are CONSTANT to the point I am exhausted and my chest actually hurts. Doctor still says “normal” due to blood work. Here’s the deal – I am close to hitting menopause (peri) so maybe mine IS hormone related, even though blood work came back normal? My neck seems fuller recently. . . .

    Opinions on pushing back that it doesn’t feel “normal”?

    48 yrs old. Female. Previous smoker. Light social drinker. Very active. Mostly organic food.

    When it comes to arrythmias no one looks at the spine and chest muscles. I finally fixed my pvcs after 2year I suffered from them. I did ask my cardiologist if it couldn’t come from blocked T3 and T4 cervicals. She replied harshly “NO”. But my back still did hurt a bit in that area. And I kept noticing, that my PVCs would get more frequent when I was sitting at my computer. So I started to to rehabilitate and stretch and stretch. Finally PVCs are now gone (summer came, so I’m much more working manually outside). Reccomend everyone with PVCs to get some chiropractor to check them out and work on stretching of the thoratic spine segment. Magnesium helps big times as it relaxes muscles. But the best thing is to move, work on the garden, go out walking as much as possible. Hope it helps.

    Hi Libor, Thanks for your great insight! We’re glad you had PVC success with spinal care and exercise! For others who may be wondering about this, we have a related article you might like at https://heartmdinstitute.com/health-and-wellness/unexplained-symptoms-chiropractic-may-help/. Lots of things can go wrong with the body when the spine is misaligned – for example, blood pressure can temporarily go up. It’s so crucial to keep energy moving throughout the body!

    I have tracked my PVCs by keeping record of everything. This is how I stopped them: First, STOP salting your food and use an alternative to salt. For example Sumak is a good spice to use because it provides salty, lemony taste without the harmful effects. Salt raises my blood pressure, and contributes to PVCs. I STOPPED drinking alcohol completely. I switched to a vegan diet with Salmon fish 4 times a month. I bike or walk for 30-60 minutes daily. I drink 5-8 16oz of bottled water each day. I stopped eating processed foods, junk foods, sugars, candy, etc. I buy dates from an ethnic store. I purchase the 11 pounds California dates, and I eat 7 dates each morning on empty stomach. Dates are rich in fibers and minerals and the sugar in them is healthy for your body. Seven seems like a magic number. I buy the best olive oil brands in the market. I tried every olive oil brand, and the best I found is Turkish, Tunisian, and Spanish olive oil. They have strong olive taste, and extremely rich in nutrients. I eat olive oil with my salads, as well as dip the dried dates in olive oil before eating them. I meditate as much as possible. meditation is magical. When I exercise,I do not over work myself out. Instead I take the time to build the workout and enjoy it. Biking is the best workout activity because I can travel from town to town and enjoy it without stressing myself out. When I feel a PVC once in a blue moon, I learnt to ignore it, and distract myself from it. I immediately change my position, get up, go for a walk, breath in better, and it goes away. Since I began to do everything I mentioned, I hardly experience PVCs.

    That’s wonderful that you were able to stop your PVCs through natural lifestyle approaches – keep it up! Dr. Sinatra is also a huge fan of olive oil, for all the health benefits it offers (see https://heartmdinstitute.com/diet-nutrition/whats-powerful-polyphenols/). He prefers California olive oil to olive oils from Europe though, and offers a line of cold-pressed flavored olive oils at https://vervana.com/product-category/olive-oils/ (organic EVOO coming soon).
