Tachycardia and Herbs

Herbs that may help with tachycardia include motherwort, hawthorn berry, and arjuana. Tachycardia occurs in response to an illness or abnormality in the conduction system of the heart. The normal heart rate for an adult is between 60 to 100 times per minute. When the heart is beating too fast, over 100 beats per minute, tachycardia occurs. It prevents the heart from producing enough blood supply for the rest of the body.
