How Do I Lower My Heart Rate Quickly?

A high resting heart rate, known as tachycardia to doctors, means your heart is beating more than 100 times per minute. When your heart beats that fast, it can be harmful to your health because tachycardia significantly increases the risk of stroke, sudden cardiac arrest, and even death.

Before taking any steps to lower your heart rate, you must find out the underlying cause from your doctor. Certain medical conditions need to be corrected with medicine.

But besides medicine, your doctor might also suggest the following.

Get some regular exercise, but go easy at first. Walking 1 to 2 miles at a time, five times a week is a good start. If you prefer biking, go three times as far as you would walk. Such exercise helps your heart pump blood more efficiently, providing more oxygen and nutrients to your tissues.

If you’re subject to occasional panic attacks that cause your heart to race, try the Valsalva maneuver.

The Valsalva maneuver involves quickly closing your mouth and nose and raising the pressure in your chest. This is similar to what you do when you stifle a sneeze. Breathe in for 5-8 seconds, hold that breath for 3-5 seconds, then exhale slowly. Do this several times to raise your aortic pressure, which will lower your heart rate.

Doctors also suggest relaxation techniques like yoga and meditation, which may provide some relief from tachycardia. But if your rapid heart rate is caused by stress, the best way to treat it is to relieve the stress. Chronic stress and anxiety may lead to an overactive sympathetic nervous system and can cause to long term damage to your overall health.

  1. Another way to stop panic attacks and to lower heart rate is to stimulate the Vagus Nerve by drinking very cold icy water and yes stimulating the Vagus Nerve can slow down the heart rate

  2. I have a trick when we exercise we breathe fast and our heart rate increases but if we are sitting and do the same fast breathing like when we exercise our heart rate will decrease just try heart rate dropped Up to 37 bpm.

    May I suggest a pinch of salt on your avocado or spinach or other leafy greens. Drink a 1/4 cup of water every 15 minutes for a couple hours or until you feel rehydrated.
    Relax … enjoy your day 🌸❤️✨
