Many posters have started topics as to whether there is a connection between celiac and heart arrythmias, skipped beats, and irregularities. I post on a forum called afibbers.org because this is one of my food-related curses. Today there was a new post by one of the founding members of the forum, who is a nutritionist, who posted a compendium of notes she had taken at various conferences she had attended on the subject at hand. This is one person's (albeit a pretty informed person) take on the topic and I found it very interesting reading. Those of you who have experienced a racing heart, skipped beats, etc., might be interested in reading it. I was particularly flabbergasted to note the statement I have bolded below: This is the first I have heard of such a condition. I will look into it. "3. Dysbiosis. An imbalance between friendly and unfriendly gut flora. Typically, it’s too much unfriendly. Candida albicans overgrowth is an example of dysbiosis. There are 500 species gut bacteria. About 25 have official names. Besides releasing various chemicals and cytokines that cause inflammation which then gets into the blood stream (translocation) which is typical in surgical patients who develop complications – (sepsis, toxic shock). Translocation starts in the gut. Leaky gut can be the source of autoimmune disorders. Evaluate gut flora with Comprehensive Digestive Stool Analysis (CDSA) Genova and include parasites. Or test for Inflammatory Cytokines – Interleukin 11 in an IBD blood panel. SIBO (small intestine bacterial overgrowth) was discussed in a post not long ago. Bacteria the colon or large intestine migrates into the small intestine where it doesn’t belong and causes significant GI problems. [see References listing] Important – It should be noted that people who have had severe GI-related infections such as C. diff are left with what is known as Post-Infectious Irritable Bowel Syndrome (PI-IBS) and this stays with them for life. They will always be highly susceptible to any type of toxin or exposure such as minor food poisoning or a gut bug. They must be mindful to keep their bowel flora optimized continually (using high-quality probiotics). " http://www.afibbers.net/forum/read.php?9,136149
