According to, other sites, and research, Ectopics usually do not have a clear cause. One of the reasons may be that there has not been enough research into this condition. Probably because it is benign in most of the cases, and there is no real “need” to research it too much?

But I believe that it may be managed to some extent if we look at the above mentioned “causes”. Most of the causes are under our control and that boils down to a healthy lifestyle and habits.

The involvement of the vagus nerve must be mentioned and I have a full post on it here:

You must do it when according to PennState Hershey :

We definitely experience it as a heart problem and really feel it inside our bodies, but is it only a heart problem?

To a large extent, it is either the stress that we live under or the lifestyle choices that we make that “gives” us Ectopic heartbeats and then eventually ectopic heartbeat anxiety.

Is it then, a bigger head problem than a heart problem(I know there are exceptions) that we are dealing with, and that all of us need more to think correctly “thoughtarrest” and take responsibility for our lifestyle choices?

  1. This may just be the answer!

    Stress and anxiety causes hyperventilation (even slow deep breathing, which is suggested to supposedly relax us, often causes hyperventilation).

    Hyperventilation causes carbon dioxide levels to drop which changes our blood’s biochemistry and affects all of our organs (albeit temporarily) but it’s enough to cause anxiety and even a panic attack in some people and ectopic heart palpitations are very likely related to this.

    I just heard about this from Michael Norman of Panic Free TV.

    Buteyko breathing is a solution

    Here’s someone teaching how to do it

    (And now I’m also reading about slow breathing in the tips you mention. So hopefully that is the key!)
