HI U LARA,,,,,,,, been down this trail for a year or so and have done some hard headed things. My Cardiologist put me on Cartizim and it worked but I stopped, because I don't like taking drugs.
My A Frb came back with a vengeance. Thought I was a goner it got so bad, especially with my self induced stress.
My integrative doctor told me that sometimes we must do drugs until we find a natural solution. Thus, I'm now back on Cartizim along with Nattokinase to keep my blood thin; Cardiac Px which contains many herbs especially Hawthorn; Taurine;
I have not had a spell since on this regimen. I also do magnesium by mouth and trans dermally.
When I really get stressed out, then I take a .5 mg Xanax.
When I get in A FIB, I drink warm water with Cayenne extract as hot as I can stand. My pulse rates goes down within a short period of time. Country doctors used this trick in the old days to keep stroke and heart attack patients from dying.
Laura, I wish you well.
