Anxiety and Arrhythmia (Video)

Mental health and the heart

The heart and brain do a lot of talking, and our emotional health can seriously impact the heart. We’re learning that anxiety can tax the heart. Specifically, high anxiety levels can  cause an irregular heart beat  and it’s a vicious cycle, as the more arrhythmia you have – it makes you more anxious.
