Rhythm of Your Heart

Our heartbeats literally enable life, circulating oxygen to our lungs and vital systems throughout the body. Sometimes, because of genetic predispositions or cardiac conditions, the heart can beat too quickly, too slowly or in an erratic fashion. This can result in symptoms like dizziness or heart palpitations.
