Atrial Fibrillation (AF) disturbance of heart rhythm



An arrhythmia is where top heart chambers do not beat normally.

Alternative Medicine

B1 + CoQ10 + hawthron - Rule out heart attack with EKG.  Rule out allergies, hot flashes, emotional distress, & thyroid disease.  Consider taking 50 mg vitamin B1  AM with food, 60 mg CoQ10 to reduce arrhythmia + 250 mg hawthorn to "increase" heart blood flow and heart rate.  3/2004 Jamison Starbuck ND Bottom Line Health - +
Bananas can replenish your stores of potassium, 1 of the most important electrolytes, which helps regulate heart function as well as fluid balance. 
There are "2distinct species: the sweet banana (Musa sapienta, Musa nana) & the plantain banana (Musa paradisiacal)..
If you need to hasten the ripening bananas in a paper bag or wrap them in newspaper, adding an apple to accelerate the process. Ripe bananas...can be placed in the refrigerator. While their peel may darken, the flesh will not be affected. For maximum flavor when consuming refrigerated bananas, remove them from the refrigerator and allow them to come back to room temperature.

EDTA (ethyl-enedi-amine tetra-acetic acid) - - "Ethyl-enedi-amine tetra-acetic acid, or EDTA, is a synthetic amino acid that is approved by the FDA for removal of toxic metal ions such as lead. Repeated EDTA administration is thought to reduce atherosclerotic plaque & other mineral deposits throughout the cardiovascular system, especially the hardened arteries around the heart." (Do NOT exceed supplement dosage &/or duration.)

Hoffer, Abraham - Omega 3 Essential Fatty Acids - "Studies demonstrate that fish oil supplementation has anti-arrhythmic effects and can reduce the incidence of fatal heart attack & sudden cardiac death.5 "
by Ron Kennedy, M.D., Santa Rosa, CA - Nutritional Considerations - - "The primary goal, of course, is to decrease the risk of complications of AF.
The most important complication is stasis of blood in the left atrium with clot formation and then stroke by virtue of movement of clotted blood from the left atrium to the left ventricle and then to the brain. That is the reason for anticoagulation of patients with AF. However, standard anticoagulation itself presents serious risks, 1 of which is stoke, although by a different mechanism. The agents usually used is coumadin, which is also the major ingredient in rat poison. It induces hemorrhagic strokes (that is to say, they bleed into their little brains) in rats and that is how it works.
Of course there should be no consumption of alcohol, coffee, tobacco, or unnecessary drugs as these items can aggravate the condition. A safer, nutritional, alternative to coumadin is high dose vitamin E in the range of at least 2000 IU per day. This provides anticoagulation, but in a fashion safer than coumadin. However if a person is already anti-coagulated, there must be a transition phase supervised by a physician and the proper lab tests to be sure that clotting ability is not too far compromised while both the coumadin & vitamin E are on board at the same time.
AF is usually present with other cardiac problems & its very presence is probably the tip of an iceberg, so to speak. It is reasonable to think that other heart problems are on the way when AF appears. To strengthen the heart AF patients should be on a full range of heart supporting nutrients such as minerals and trace minerals, co-Q10, L-carnitine, taurine, magnesium, vitamin C, fish oil, and thiamine. In addition, EDTA chelation therapy, in my experience, strengthens the heart and provides an anti-coagulant action of its own. These should be alternated with intravenous mineral drips and this sometimes stops AF. This is the course I myself would follow if I had AF, before I would consider the more radical solutions such as ablation of parts of the conducting system of the heart."
Magnesium Taurate: Both (mineral) magnesium and the amino acid taurine share the ability to improve cardiac function; each has a potentiating effect on insulin sensitivity & also a calming effect on neuromuscular excitability. The actions of both have striking similarities when it comes to cardiovascular health. They both have blood pressure reducing effects, stabilize nerve cells, improve the contraction of the heart muscle and have an anti-thrombotic effect.7 Additionally, low levels of vitamin B6 have been shown to further deplete both magnesium & taurine.
Iron (II) taurate, magnesium taurate and magnesium acetyl taurate - 2009 - "Following a request from the European Commission to the European Food Safety Authority, the Scientific Panel on Food Additives & Nutrient Sources added to Food (ANS) was asked to provide a scientific opinion on the safety of iron (II) taurate, magnesium taurate & magnesium acetyl taurate added for nutritional purposes as sources of iron or magnesium in food supplements and on the bioavailability of iron or magnesium from these sources...
The Panel concludes that the bioavailability or iron and magnesium from iron (II) taurate, magnesium taurate and magnesium acetyl taurate is expected to be similar to that of other dissociable sources of iron and magnesium in the diet.  The Panel concludes that the use of iron (II) taurate, magnesium taurate & magnesium acetyl taurate as sources of iron and magnesium at the proposed use levels is not of safety concern."
Magnesium and Taurine - The 2 best absorbed forms are magnesium taurate and glycinate. Citrate and chloride are also fairly well absorbed. Magnesium is also absorbed through our skin. Epsom salt baths are proven to raise mag. Levels & topical mag. Chloride solution also works.  (and may also help with obesity, circulation and diabetes issues)
Dr. Albert G. Pizzo answered: "I prefer very absorbable magnesium e.g. Magnesium malate or magnesium citrate.
Do (not) use magnesium oxide as it does not absorb very well into your system...
Magnesium is found in fish, artichokes, bananas, grains, yogurt, black beans, almonds, cashews & Brazil nuts."
Magnesium and Taurine - (Some recommend 2 g taurine + at least 500 mg magnesium daily.  Whatever u do, titrate up or down slowly.)

Magnesium + taurine (magnesium taurate) may help with obesity and diabetes, but is vital for (AF) arterial fibrillation – heart electrical rythm.  However there r cautions esp. re overdose.  Use the minimum dosage, erring on the safe side.

Magnesium - Low magnesium (symptoms can be) dizziness, confusion, fast or uneven heart rate, jerking muscle movements, jittery feeling, muscle cramps, muscle weakness or limp feeling, cough or choking feeling, seizure.
Magnesium types - Good overview.
Magnesium + Calcium + Potassium - Ryan, Dr. Steve S. - - "If you have A-Fib, you can take for granted that you need more Magnesium...Most US adults ingest only about 270 mg of magnesium a day, well below the modest magnesium RDAs of 420 mg for adult males and 320 mg for adult females...A recommended goal is a minimum 600 mg/day, preferably 800 mg. (For example, 200mg 3x/day and 200 mg at bedtime.) It’s prudent to start off with very low doses of oral magnesium such as 100 mg. (Excess magnesium or magnesium sensitivity can cause loose stools and diarrhea which is counterproductive, because of the loss of electrolytes.) Increase the dosage of magnesium every 4-5 days. It may take as long as 6 months to replenish your intracellular magnesium levels. 7 ...If oral magnesium causes bowel sensitivity, an alternative (or an additional source of magnesium) is Magnesium Oil which is applied to the skin and over the heart.  An example is 'Ancient Minerals Ultra Pure Magnesium' which is odorless...
(One method is to apply a drop the size of a quarter to the inner arm fold opposite and above the elbow, then wash off in 20 minutes.)  Another alternative treatment is Epsom Salts Baths—soak for 20 minutes in a bath with 2 cups of Epsom Salts (any brand will do). (Epsom Salt Baths can also cause loose stools.) See Personal Experiences: Epsom Salts Cure. You can also make an Epsom Salts spray—one part Epsom Salts to one part water. Place in a spray bottle and mist the chest. Let it dry on the skin...
Too much calcium (Ca) can excite the heart cells and induce A-Fib, especially when magnesium is deficient. 8 According to Dr. Andrea Natale, calcium overload is the primary factor in A-Fib remodeling. 9 A-Fib patients may need to stop or lower significantly their calcium supplements and increase magnesium 10   Aim for a ratio of 1 part Calcium to one or more parts Magnesium. It’s good to keep track of how much Calcium you are taking in daily, so that you can be sure to take in more Magnesium...
Potassium (K+) is often the 2nd key nutrient A-Fibbers may be deficient in. In fact, magnesium depletion can lead to potassium depletion. 11 Potassium helps prevent A-Fib by prolonging the refractory period—the time when the heart is resting between beats. (During this rest period the heart can’t be stimulated to contract, thus leaving the heart in normal sinus rhythm.) When potassium levels are too low, heart cells become unusually excitable, often leading to premature contractions and/or A-Fib.
12...(Recommended foods are raw avocadoes, bananas, green leafy vegetables)...The recommended dosage is 1600-2400 mg/day. While potassium is available in tablets, the 99 mg maximum FDA dosage makes them impracticable (requiring 16+ tablets/day). Instead we recommend the powder form—Now Foods Potassium Gluconate Pure Powder available from... Take a total of 3-4 teaspoons a day with meals (approximately 540 mg per teaspoon). But as with magnesium, start off low, 1 teaspoon/day, and increase the dosage every 4-5 days. The goal is to keep the serum blood potassium level at 4.5 but under 5.0 13 A word of caution: adding too much potassium too soon will make A-Fib worse, not better. 13 Too much potassium in blood plasma makes the cardiac cells depolarized and unexcitable, leading to spontaneous activity in other areas of the heart such as the Pulmonary Vein openings. 14 - (Stay within recommended daily dosages/percentages to each other regarding calcium/magnesium/ potassium.  Titrate up or down slowly.  Monitor, perhaps by marking daily your wall calendar or keeping a diary.)...
Vitamin D from sun exposure: 5–30 minutes of sun exposure between 10 AM and 3 PM at least 2x a week to the face, arms, legs, or back without sunscreen 18...Two different forms: D2 & D3...For adults who aren’t getting vitamin D from the sun, the recommended supplement is: 200 IU of vitamin D a day for adults under 50 and 400 IU for adults 50-70 years of age. Many doctors are advising their patients to take much higher amounts, such as 1,000 I.U. a day...Vitamin D helps the body absorb calcium. A deficiency in vitamin D can cause an imbalance in Magnesium and Calcium, and contribute to heart palpitations. 16 Testing for Vitamin D deficiency: Ask your doctor for a “25-hydroxy Vitamin D Test” or use an in-home Vitamin D test available from the Vitamin D Council. 17 Vitamin D deficiency is defined as a blood 25(OH)D level below 20 ng/dL. Normal levels are considered to be above 30 ng/dL. 16."

Vitamin D - Zeratsky, K - biography - - "The main consequence of vitamin D toxicity is a buildup of calcium in your blood (hyper-calcemia), which can cause symptoms such as poor appetite, nausea and vomiting. Weakness, frequent urination and kidney problems also may occur...Taking 50,000 international units (IU) a day of vitamin D for several months has been shown to cause toxicity. This level is many times higher than the recommended dietary allowance (RDA) for most adults of 600 IU of vitamin D a day...You may be at greater risk if you have health problems, such as liver or kidney conditions, or if you take thiazide-type diuretics."
Vitamin D - - "In patients with low, low-normal, normal, and high-normal levels of vitamin D, there was no increased risk of atrial fibrillation. Those with excess levels (above 100 ng/mL) of vitamin D had 2.5 times greater risk of atrial fibrillation compared to those with lower levels...
It may have been hypo-thyroidism that caused the increased incidence of atrial fibrillation and not the vitamin D.8-10...We would expect anyone who may have developed atrial fibrillation in response to excess blood levels of 25-hydroxy-vitamin D would be able to reverse the problem by lowering their vitamin D dose. Since vitamin D is fat-soluble, we would recommend that someone who had been taking 10,000 IU a day of vitamin D and whose blood levels of 25-hydroxy-vitamin D are over 100 ng/mL should reduce their dose to NO more than 2,000 IU a day for 2-3 months and then take another 25-hydroxy-vitamin D blood test. If 25-hydroxy-vitamin D levels drop below 50 ng/mL, they may want to initiate supplementation with an additional 2,000-5,000 IU a day and re-check their blood within the next 3 months...The more common challenge is someone taking 5,000 IU (and higher) of vitamin D3 a day and still NOT being able to reach (the recommended) 50 ng/mL." (This pertains mainly to excess vitamin D supplements, especially the synthetic formula used as rat poison.)

EDTA (ethyl-enedi-amine tetra-acetic acid) - 2016 - - "Term “EDTA” used for 2 different drugs “ There are 2 drugs approved by the FDA that have similar names and are easily confused. To add to the confusion, both drugs are commonly referred to only as the abbreviation, “EDTA.” 1 drug is named “Calcium Disodium Versenate” and is also known by the chemical name of edetate calcium disodium. This drug is approved by the FDA to lower blood lead levels among patients with lead poisoning. The other drug is marketed as “Endrate” and is also known by the chemical name of edetate disodium This drug is approved by the FDA for use in selected patients with high blood calcium levels (hypercalcemia) as well as for use among patients with heart rhythm problems due to intoxication with the drug digitalis.(Fig. 2.11)"
