CAN YOU “CONTROL” IT?
According to webmed.com, 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.

ECTOPIC HEARTBEAT ANXIETY, HEART OR HEAD PROBLEM?
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?
