When she awake up, the heart rate jumps to high speed . I am much worried about my daughter’s condition. Kindly help me and prescribe some Homeo medicine to bring my daughter’s heart rate normal. Thank you in advance.

Doctor reply.

Thank you for your query. Before i prescribe the Homeo medicines to treat fast heart beats, i would like to discuss some thing about heart rate.


  • Normal resting  heart rate:
  • Children heart rate.
  • Maximum heart rate.
  • Target heart rate.
  • Dangerous heart rate.
  • Slow heart rate.
  • Find your heart rate.
  • Effects of Typhoid fever.
  • Homeo treatment for high heart rate.

Normal resting  heart rate.

Heart rate is the number of times our heart beats in a minute. Our heart rate changes and does not stay at one level all the time. It will change in our emotional state and during exercise . Heart rate is always measured when some one is at rest and relaxed. This is known our resting  heart rate.

Our resting heart rate is when our heart pumps the minimal amount of blood that our body needs. Our body need less amount of blood when we are resting.

Usually between 60 and 100 heat  beats per minutes is considered as normal resting heart rate for adults. If you are exercising, your heart rate can be higher or lower. It depends on your activity. Beside that , your age, level of activity and certain medications have affects  on heart rate. The resting heart rate of children may be higher than an adult heart rate, Athletes ‘ heart rate could as low as 40 beats per minute and still considered as normal. People taking some medications like beta blockers can have lower resting heart rate.

The  following table  show the average normal resting heart rate for adults based on their age.

Age ( years)          Average resting heart rate  ( bpm)

18  to  20                 81.6

21  to  30                 80.2

31 to  40                 78.5

41  to  50                 75.3

51  to  60                 73.9

61  to  70                 73.0

71  to  80                 74.2

over  80                   78.1

Some factors can change your heart rate. These are:

  • Temperature.
  • Pain.
  • Medication side effects.
  • Emotions.
  • Weight.
  • Anemia.
  • Body position.
  • Smoking.


Children heart rate:

Children heart rate changes as the they grow. The following table show the pediatric resting heart rate, awake or asleep.

Age                     waking resting h. rate (bpm)      Sleeping heart  rate (bpm)

Newborn to

3 months.            85 to 205                                            80 to 16

3 months to

2 years.                100 to 190                                             75 to 160

2 to 10 years         60 to 140                                              60 to 90

Over 10 years        60 to 100                                              50 to 90

Maximum heart rate:

You can estimate your age related  maximum heart rate during exercise. There is an easy formula. Subtract your age from 220. For example, for a 30 years old person , the estimated maximum age related heart rate will be calculated as 220 – 30 years = 190 beats per minutes. This  maximum  heart rate finding during exercise  will help you to find out if you are exercising too hard or  you need more hard exercise.

Target heart rate:

American Heart Association recommends your target heart rate during moderate exercise  should be  50 to 70 % of your maximum heart rate. The following chart shows the target heart rate range and average maximum heart rate of different ages , based on AHA :

Age (years)      Target H. rate (bpm)      Average max. H. rate (bpm)

  • 20                           100 to 170                    200
  • 30                            95 to 162                     190
  • 35                            93 to 157                     185
  • 40                            90 to 153                     180
  • 45                            88 to 149                     175
  • 50                            85 to 145                     170
  • 55                            83 to 140                     165
  • 60                            80 to 136                     160
  • 65                            78 to 132                     155
  • 70                             75 to 128                    150

Dangerous heart rate:

When our heart beats is too fast, it is called ” Tachycardia” ( Tachycardia  is the medical term for a heart rate over 100 beats a minute. Many types of irregular heart rhythms (arrhythmias) can cause tachycardia ). Usually a fast heart beat above 100 bpm is considered as high heart rate. There are some health conditions which are cause of Tachycardia. These are:

  • Congenital heart disease. (Congenital heart disease is also known as CHD. They are structural abnormalities of the heart and can cause other issues in the great vessels. These abnormalities occur while the fetus is developing. This is why it is called congenital, it is there since birth. CHD is a common type of birth defect but is also the leading cause of death in babies ).
  • Anemia.
  • Hyperthyroidism, ( Hyperthyroidism is known as overactive thyroid. It occurs when your thyroid gland makes and releases too much thyroid hormone).
  • Blood flow effecting heart disease.
  • Heart injury from heart attack.
  • Drinking caffeine or alcohol.
  • stress.
  • Physical exercise.
  • Pregnancy.

Beside above, taking illegal drugs , misuse of prescribed medication and using non prescribed products can cause of too fast heart beats.


Slow heart rate:.

Too slow heart rate is called “Bradycardia”. If the heart beat is less than 60 beats per minutes, it comes under Bradycardia. Peoples who exercise regularly and athletes ‘ heart beat less than 60  bpm is considered as normal and even healthy. The following are possible causes of bradycardia:

  • side effects of medicines
  • Abrupted sleep .
  • Any health condition.
  • Electrolyte imbalance.
  • Old age.
  • Heart problems.

Prolonged not treated  Bradycardia or Tachycardia can come more serious and become cause of dizziness and fainting.

Find your heart rate..

Know your heart rate.      A simple method .



There are many devices which can help  to calculate heart beats per minutes. The American Heart Association recommend a simple method to  check your heart beats manually. Many doctors and Hakeems check the heart beats with this method . It is so simple.

  • Find your pulse on the inside of your wrist.
  • Put the tips of your first two fingers over artery.
  • Press the finger tips slightly over artery.
  • Count the pulse for 30 seconds. Then  multiply  that number by 2  and you will get your heart beats per minute.

If your heart beats are too  fast  or too  slow, or you are  feeling uncomfortable, do not rely on above method . In such case , consult a doctor immediately.


Effects of Typhoid fever.

Typhoid fever is a life-threatening infection caused by the bacterium Salmonella Typhi. It is usually spread through contaminated food or water. Once Salmonella Typhi bacteria are ingested, they multiply and spread into the bloodstream. Symptoms include a high fever, weakness, stomach pains, headache, and loss of appetite. Sometimes, a rash of flat, rose-colored spots may appear. Antibiotics are often used to treat the disease.

It is believed among folks that Typhoid fever has four steps. It will leave the body after 7 days . Giving strong medication is dangerous. If the fever is still there, it will be cured automatically after 14 days, or 21 days or 42 days. Typhoid fever ‘s poison travel in the body . If strong medicines are given to the patient for relief of the fever, and patient got relief, the typhoid fever’s poison will effect on the human body’s part where it was present at that time. I know two example of this effects. One of my friend’s doctor mother had Typhoid fever. She took some strong medication to get relief from Typhoid  fever. She got the relief from fever but she became blind. Another example. One of my male relative had Typhoid fever. He also took medicines to get rid of Typhoid fever. His fever was gone, but he became blind.

It is very important NOT to try to get rid of Typhoid fever with fever breaking strong medications. A qualified doctor is the only choice to consult.
