In brief: No treatment is best
Premature ventricular beats have absolutely no clinical relevance to you, as long as you have had basic testing to exclude underlying structural heart disease.
The only reason to ever treat them is if they are distracting and really annoying to you. Caffeine/stress reduction, and better sleep habits sometimes helps. Beta-blockers will suppress them but often at trade-off of side effects of the med.

In brief: VPCs
One to three vpcs a day is so few that you can't treat it with any confidence that you are achieving anything.
That few vpcs really has no significance and certainly shouldn't be treated with drug.
