Can a lot of alcohol consumption lead to frequent heart palpitations or unusual rhythms even in the most healthy person or unhealthy?

Alcohol: As your body is trying to clear the alcohol, you often lose both potassium and magnesium, both of which if out of balance can cause heart palpitations. Alcohol is also a neuro toxin, liver toxin, and makes you prone to a lot of health problems. If you or someone you know is having these symptoms after alcohol, I would recommend a blood test and being evaluated by your doctor.

Whenever I drink beer I get heart palpitations even if it's only one beer is this normal?

Normal for you: You have a sensitivity or allergy to a component in the beer and should avoid it--more common with darker beers (and dark liquors), so could try pale/red and see if don't get symptoms--if these do it also, discuss w/your dr, bit are likely "off" beer due to this sensitivity. Good luck!

I have 1-2 heart palpitations a day, I don't drink coffee and I had a good EKG in june. Is this concerning?

Depends: If the palpitations are brief, lasting 1-2 seconds, and feel like a "skipped heart beat" or an "extra heart beat" then these are generally benign and of no concern. If the palpitations are prolonged and characterized by sustained rapid heart beats, then you should be evaluated by your physician. These are usually safe and not life-threatening, but can be annoying.

Diagnosed with chonic dehydration. Told to drink 2.3L min. Of water per day. How long should it take to rehydrate and stop heart palpitations 100%?

Quickly: If you are drinking adequate water per day you should be rehydrated quickly. If you find that you still have heart palpitations then they may be due to another cause and you may want to add a little salt with the fluid- a handful of salted nuts, etc. Also you should be peeing several times per day- every 4 to 6 hours- that is another sign you have adequate hydration See your doctor if not better

Avoid triggers: Alcohol and certain foods can trigger palpitations. Avoid caffeine containing products including sodas, chocolates, coffee and teas.

Marketing that Power: Is Outside. Reality: Power, Control of all body functions overwhelmingly within. Like all living creatures, this must be the case in order to survive; termed homeostasis. Control of heart, like rest of body, from brain, many many interactive control cycles per second. Thus mental issues are dominant though some outside influences can interact.
