  • Heart races

    Hi everyone,my heart tends to race pretty fast lately and I don't know if it’s because I started taking too much coffee per day or because of a more serious health problem. Now I'm literally a coffee addict. Any idea to stop this?

    It is not uncommon to hear patients say that, when they started experiencing racing or skipping a heartbeat, they stopped drinking caffeinated beverages. In general, there is a widespread perception that caffeine may be a root cause of a racing heart, even in light of our overwhelming consumption of caffeinated products, including energy drinks, coffee, and energy supplements.

    Caffeine is a natural product that is derived from the raw fruit that grows on coffee plants. Some tea leaves also have caffeine, as does cocoa, kola nuts, and yerba maté. When we consume caffeine, the chemical is absorbed by the body within 30 minutes to an hour.

      Here's another issue that I think effects many native Americans both young and old.

      I'm currently trying the Special K diet with most breakfasts consisting of a bowl of Special K and a cup of coffee w/equal. Lunch is a bowl of Quaker Oats w/coffee.

      Dinner is something...

      Making it thru Fridays....
      by suzyq
      Okay, we all know the only good thing about Friday is:
      A. It's usually payday
      B. It means the weekend is finally here

      What, if anything, do you do to help you get through Friday and keep your sanity?

      For years I have worn one of my Hawaiin shirts on Fridays...
