I havnt had a-fib (heart palpations) for about 6 months now after being hospitalized about 8 times. I stopped taking warfarin and blood thinners without my doctors consent and started eating healthy and taking supplements. I now can eat anything since leaving out the rat poison (warfarin) Let me tell you what I eat and what supplements I take. Breakfast consists of oat bran, oatmeal, flaxseed, mixed nuts, cocoa powder, black berries, turmeric powder, cinnamon powder, mixed with milk of your choice. Supplements include coq10, magnesium, chromium picolinate, resveratrol. I don't know what cured my A-fib but I will carry on with what I'm doing. I also have arthritis and diabetes. My arthritis has disappeared I no longer take cellebrex. My sugar levels are under control. I feel so good and healthy. I also believe Apple Cider Vinegar is good for heart palpations which I was taking but stopped, will start again. I wonder if anybody out there can recognize what has cured my palpations. I do know that the turmeric and cinnamon cured my arthritis. I've given up the idea about commiting suicide. Hope this helps someone, since I know how bad a-fib can be. Life's good now.
I apologize if this is a bit long. I would like to share with everyone who has or currently is experiencing (HP) and the alternative process that I undertook. It was December 8, 2008 when I first experienced HP. It felt as though my heart was going to go through my chest. I thought I was having a heart attack, but without the chest pain or numbness of my extremities. Thank God for that. It freaked me out so bad that I had my wife rush me to the ER. At the ER, they hooked me up to an EKG machine, then took X-Ray, and admitted for an overnight observation. In the morning, I underwent a treadmill stress test. All results were normal. So, I was prescribed Atenolol and Fleicanide. I went to ER more than 13 times from the plethora of side effects from these drugs. I experienced very low BP, blurred visions, internal burning and pain in my gut, which then radiated to my lower back and chest, and I was diagnosed with Barret's esophagus, which is a precursor to cancer. I believe the culprit was the Fleicanide. To combat the very low BP, my cardiologist replaced Atenolol with Deltiazim--that cause severe chest burning. It got so bad that I could hardly eat anything and I was burping and belching all day long. I had to be put on Xanax for anxiety and Valium for the pain. So what did I do?
Most of you have indicated that modern medicine doesn't help. I totally agree. In fact, it only makes thing worse with so many side effects and little benefit, IF any, which was my case. I even under went catheter ablation and thankfully, my cardiologist could not chemically induce the palpitation. So he couldn't burn and scare my heart. I understand that this process makes things worse. A friend of mine took me to her Naturopath doctor. He tested my lungs, heart, stomach and liver and wrote me a prescription to have my blood tested. There were 10 tests that he was looking for. I got the results and my regular doctor said everything was normal. I took a copy of that test results and gave it to my Naturopath. He highlighted 5 things that he found abnormal even though my regular doctor had indicated that they were normal. He immediately put me on 2 weeks nutritional program strictly of organic vegetables; no meats, no sugars, no bread of any sorts, and 8 sessions of colonic hydrotherapy to help speed up the detoxification process. Once the two weeks was completed he re-adjusted my nutritional program for another 4 weeks. He also put me on herbal and botanical supplements. I was on Devacor, Neprinol, Charcoal capsules, and a mixture that consisted of 15 different herbs, roots, flowers, etc. , all precisely weighed and mixed. I have also added OMEGA-3 Fish-oil, COQ10, pre and probiotics. I continue to drink ginger tea made from fresh root and in the process of being part-vegan, I have lost 35 pounds. I say part-vegan because I eat fish and turkey. If I do eat chicken, it must be cage free or organic. Throughout my HP ordeal, I have learned so much about alternative health style. Today, I am very healthy. I still get HP, but once in a blue moon, and briefly, as compared to what I experienced in the past. I continue to eat healthy and learn to appreciate vegetables like it was going out of style. Too much to write, but if anyone wants more information , you may contact me at my email address with the title "Heart Palpitation. " Thank you for reading.
