Atrial Fibrillation

Atrial Fibrillation Tips

Atrial Fibrillation now plagues millions of people worldwide. Eight to ten percent on the world’s population have or will suffer with atrial fibrillation or cardiac arrhythmias. Your concerns are not how many have atrial fibrillation but, what causes it and how do we manage atrial fibrillation in our life? After the scary ride in the ambulance or the hours in the emergency room, we rush to the internet for an explanation of what is happening to our life.

If you are wondering if the life sentence of drugs (that will eventually cause other heart problems, nerve deterioration and higher chances of stroke)to manage your atrial fibrillation, can be pardoned, then the discovery of mineral deficiency and the ill effects on the heart will be of great interest to atrial fibrillation sufferers.

When a veterinarian is called to tend an animal, he or she is trained to find a cure for the animal, not recommend a band-aid treatment that will hide the disease. Veterinarians are trained in nutrition, vitamin and mineral deficiencies that can be corrected allowing the animal’s body to be restored. Our body can also HEAL ITSELF if we give it a chance!

Atrial fibrillation could have been caused by a virus, injury or just passed on from our parents… heard any of this? We won’t debate any of the suggested causes as it really doesn’t enter into the equation if we have atrial fibrillation.

Could there be an explanation that is really the MISSING LINK?

Dr. Linus Pauling, two time winner of the Nobel Prize, claims Iodine deficiency is an important health problem throughout much of the world.

Dr. Guy Abraham, thyroidologist, is convinced that atrial fibrillation and cardiac arrhythmias have grown to epidemic numbers in this country due to iodine deprivation in the body. Adequate iodine reserves in the body are necessary for smooth heartbeat. High iodine doses were prescribed for numerous conditions for over 100 years. Every organ, vessel and tissues in the body needs iodine. Today’s doctors are reluctant to allow larger doses of iodine to be used as therapy. (The reason is not that iodine won’t help or that it is dangerous, but that there is no kickback for a prescription!)

Dr. Bruce West states that “most of the stubborn cases of cardiac arrhythmias and atrial fibrillation … have now been resolved with adequate supplies of iodine”. Dr. West saw people with stubborn arrhythmias get better on 10, 20, 30 and as much as 50 mgs of whole food iodine, daily for 3 to 4 months.

A simple test to find out if you are iodine deficient: procure a small bottle of iodine (less than 20%) from WalMart . Paint a 2 inch circle on the center inside (or inside of the bicep) of your arm.
• If the circle disappears in less than 8 hours, you need iodine desperately.
• If the circle disappears in less than 24 hours, you still need iodine supplement.
• If the 2 inch stain stays on your arm after 24 hours (even if faded) you have reached iodine sufficiency.

Protocols for a healthy heart includes whole food supplements of iodine, calcium, B complex, and magnesium.
