I started a plant based diet, and took 4 drops of Lugol's Solution a day. I have been vegan since June 27th my last episode and I can honestly say since July 25th I have had no more episodes and in general I feel so much better! Leafy greens and tropical fruits are what I eat. If I cook it is a vegan dish. No animal products whatsoever, and this is worked for me! Good luck to you :)
I've tried all these, molasses+cayenne, ACV+baking soda, Lugol's iodine and magnesium both orally and spray-applied oil. All work fairly well to get rid of the arrhythmias for about 6 months, but they came back every day and I had to watch my diet very carefully to stay off heavy carbs and coffee.
Then I read the symptoms of low potassium. Since they fit me, I bought a bag of potassium chloride (KCl). In a large water glass, 12 oz, I put 1/16th of a teaspoon of KCl, and stirred it up. I sipped the water slowly, for over an hour. Then I repeated throughout the day.
I just do that now, very little of the other stuff. I still occasionally take some molasses in warm water, it worked the best. Also magnesium helps lot of things. But the KCl in water is by far the best - I obviously have had an extreme potassium deficiency. I also have better strength in my muscles, and better energy. I'm a 56 year old male.
Yes, you have to be careful with potassium. But if you need it, you really do need it. Don't let naysayers scare you off. Try a little, as I did, and sip it slowly. If it's the solution, you'll know fast. I'm back to being able to eat what I want, including coffee. And no arrhythmias anymore, period.
Hi, I stumbled accross this site and just want to say a big thankyou for the helpful info. I am 49 and have had a dual chamber pacemaker (several) since I was 27. I have suffered with a multitude of different types of arrhythmias which the doctors just label sick sinus syndrome. More recently I have had episodes of VT. They tried several meds that my body just rejected and nearly killed me. Wanted to try burning my heart & if that didn't work - try putting a defribulator in. Providing I survive an op to take out all the current leads in there. That sent me on a path to find my own answers.
I would like to share with all the women sufferers out there not to discount the benefits of natural progesterone. Have to import it as in my country it is not available. (they just want to kill you with chemicals) I learnt a lot from reading the book 'what your doctor may not tell you about menopause' by John R Lee MD.
I also have been taking herbal medicine prescribed for me by a authentic Chinese doctor.
The combination of these has helped 50%. Im still not out of the woods yet which prompted my search.
I have followed the links and intend to start trying the vitamin methods as well. So thanks again I had started to give up. I knew there must be another way.
Also, if you need a quick fix, I find that running a mile or so is sufficient for me to reset my heart rhythm. So far, I've only had to do it 3 times, but have had success with no relapses for at least 24 hours. May be just me and my particular arrhythmia, but it is handy when traveling or away from your supplements.
Yes sea salt makes all the difference. I grew up with adrenal fatigue which turned into exhaustion/burnout 3.5 years ago. During this phase the adrenals don't produse aldosterone (anti-diuretic hormone) so the kidneys leak salt. As a result the potassium you eat is not absorbed - or very little of it - so that the balance is maintained in the body. When your levels are so low the heart cannot work properly. Until you start salting your water and food your potassium will remain very low. The heart problems - unless there is a physical malformaton or damage - are pure de-hydration.
In the morning drink a glass of water with a little salt in it. Experiment with the dosage. Shouldn't overdo it to start with. Try to eat at least one big green salad a day sprinkled with salt. Avoid in the evenings as you may get very thirsty in the middle of the night. I use Celtic Sea Salt, completely unprocessed and very tasty. Eat bananas too. You should see the difference in a couple of days.
Finally, I cant praise magnesium chloride enough. Magnesium is notoriously difficult to absorb. The absolute best & fastest way to replenish the body is transdermally. It's like balm for the adrenals.

I wish i could say i was like others on this board. occasional problems. i have atrial fib all day every day. i take coumiden so i don't get a stroke.i also take metroprolo to control the beat somewhat.
i am a person that has suffered with high stress for most of my life including my childhood and have a tendency to take things personaly further adding to the stress load. i have on occasion snapped and went berserk on more than one occasion. i suppose that really made my adrenals weak.
i have tried apple cider vinegar, liver flush, fasting, hawthorn berry syrup, green tea, baking soda for acidity reduction, calcium and magnesium, trace minerals, carrot juice, beet juice, celery juice. hemp hearts,omega three. the only thing i have not really got into is adrenal therapy and thirty day juice fasting. if i don't find the source of the problem i will just have to wait for this to kill me. its been this way for 2 years now and i am ready to cure myself because the mds haven't got a clue.

I heard a lecture by an ND for heart issues he suggested selenium, and calcium. Magnesium is the other one that was mentioned. Minerals are needed so buy a good mineral supplement and start taking it.
Bill from Pampanga:
I asked this question but forgot to check back here till now. Thanks for replying Bill. Mercury Drug Store in the Philippines sells 10 volumes RHEA H2O2 (Agua Oxigenada) made by Telstar Manufacturing for PHILUSA. This must be the red and white tip bottle you mentioned. It doesn't list any other ingredient other than H2O2, so it must be okay. Will taking 6 drops in filtered (3-stage sediment filter, Carbon filter and UV sterilized water be okay for mixing it in or do I have to buy Absolute or Wilkins distilled drinking water?
I also bought United Home Sodium Bicarbonate tablets(680 mg. ). Instructions say take 3 times a day, 1 hour after each meal. Would this do instead of mixing 1/4 Sod. Bicarb in 1/2 glass of water? I wonder what the equivalent of 680 grams of Sod. Bicarb in measuring spoons (1/4 or 1/2?)
Can I take the 6 drops of H2O2 with or after the Sod. Bicarb?
I have a discomfort in my upper left stomach that is activated by eating sweets. It disappears when I stay away from sugar stuff but returns after taking sweet stuff like fruit and grapes. I don't want to wait and be diagnosed with cancer and start treatment so I must as well do now. I ordered some maple syrup to be mixed with Sod. Bicarb but I just read Ted from Bangkok's instructions not to take it with maple. Ted seems to know a lot so he must be a practicing doctor who tried out a lot of alternative cancer treatments. I don't think I can buy Lugol's Iodine here in our country, can you?
I've had a quadruple by-pass in 1993. 12 years later in 2005, I was scheduled for another angiogram and possible stent or by-pass. Couldn't afford it and I really don't want to go through it all over again. I opted for Intravenous chelation and had 35 IV's using EDTA and Plaquex plus vitamins in IV form and O2 in water solution and came out okay. I didn't exercise and watch my diet so in April 2010 this year, I had 12 IV's of EDTA and Plaquex only again. Not having money to continue the IV chelation treatment, I tried Cardio-Renew EDTA in liquid drops and I am okay now. I can't get an endoscopy till I have a cardiac clearance but it costs money that I don't really have. So, I don't know what I got in my stomach. I have a super sweet tooth and was fond of sweets. But now, I am abstaining because I fear what may be inside my stomach. It's like a sore that won't go away but the sod. Bicarb tablets is helping a lot till I eat sweet stuff again. This causes my heartbeat to go medium fast and irregular. Could this be candida?
I noticed that after staying away from sweets and taking the sod. Bicarb tablets, the arrhythmia disappears. It's a strange one that normally starts when I lie down on my left side (most of the time. Positional arrhythmia maybe? I wonder why and what's causing it on my left side. Thanks so much and I'd appreciate suggestions from you Bill or Ted or anybody.

Taurine controls my 8 year battle with a racing heart. I get mine from chemical exposures (perfumes, cleaners, etc. ) taurine is an antioxidant that doctors don't seem to know about. I take 3 - 1000mg tablets a day. The body flushes out what you don't need. It is safe with no know drug interaction issues. It has literally been a miracle for me! I hope it helps you too.
There's some research that Taurine might be one of the most important amino acids to regulate the heartbeat. The research paper on the link below discusses how someone who had 20, 000 irregular heartbeats per day eliminated them with Taurine (along with L-Arginine). The paper says that the people involved in this particular study had tried many other supplements prior to Taurine, but Taurine (with L-Arginine) was the answer for them
See George Eby Research site.
They were using very, very heavy doses (10 - 20 grams per day). For a starter dose, one could take 3 grams per day of Taurine in 3 divided doses of 1 gram (the paper says to take with meals, but I have heard that it's better on an empty stomach so that it doesn't compete with other amino acids for absorption). According to what I have read, there are no side effects for dosages up to 3 grams. Beyond that, you might want to do some searching on the internet to check on this. Overall though, it seems that Taurine is pretty safe, but it's probably best to start with small doses and build up.
From the link, it seems that L-Arginine does have side effects (sometimes severe), so proceed with caution with L-Arginine, or just supplement with Taurine and see what happens.

Arrhythmia: I went on a raw food plant based diet or raw till 4 and it works! Give it time eat the foods rich in magnesium and potassium. Tropical fruits are not expensive and very tasty. There are tons of resources on YouTube about this. It's essentially the best way to correct the sinus rhythm and stabilize the body.
The arrhythmia I noticed first showed up around age 62. About the same time I started using a SCENAR unit, DENAS cardio-3 wrist blood pressure unit twice daily, once in the morning and once in the evening. After about 6 months of daily use, the arrhythmia is very rarely seen.
