Heart Tremors and Palpitations
Heart Tremors refer to Arrhythmia, irregular Heart beats. Tachycardia means a rapid Heart beat. Palpitations are notable rapid or irregular Heart beats which are felt. Both may come from either excess, deficiency or obstruction. Excess are from Heat or Phlegm; deficient types are from Qi, Yin or Yang deficiency; obstruction is of Qi and Blood stasis. Due to the fact that there is irregularity in the flow of Vital Spirit (Qi), medicines to settle and regulate the Wind are often used.
