The Truth About “AFib”

Current statistics from The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) estimate that 2.7 to 6.1 million Americans are currently diagnosed with “AFib”. They also estimate that by 2030 more than 12 million Americans will have “AFib”. This is one of the most common types of heart arrythmia.

Mainstream medical practitioners almost unanimously tell patients that Atrial Fibrillation is incurable and can only be managed with prescription blood thinner medications and/or ablation surgery. Now, let me tell you, that’s a fib! The fact is that “AFib” despite being one of the most prevalent heart conditions in our society today, sometimes is treatable and may even be curable with diet, vitamins, and natural methods such as non-invasive chelation therapy. One of the greatest causes of “AFib” might be heavy metal poisoning which chelation therapy reduces from your body.

What Is It And What Causes It

“AFib” is quite variable, when the heart beats too slowly, too fast, or in an irregular way. The blood, due to this irregular beat, doesn’t flow as well as it should from the atria to the lower champers of the heart. Symptoms of “AFib” include rapid heartbeat, shortness of breath, and/or weakness. “AFib” often happens in brief episodes and can be quite frightening. While many mainstream doctors consider “AFib” to be a progressive and permanent disease, it certainly might not have to be if treated properly in the early stages.

Stress, Heavy Metal Poisoning, Diet

In my most recent blog, The Heart Is A Very, Very Resilient Little Muscle, (the link is provided at the end of this article) I talked about how sometimes heart conditions are misdiagnosed and when properly investigated, many can be found to be the result of (or significantly worsened by) heavy metal poisoning. This is very often the case with “AFib.” Metal dental fillings are one of the biggest contributors to the onset of “AFib.” Stress also is a major contributor and Lord knows there’s hardly anyone who hasn’t been under a great deal of stress in the last few years. Diet is also a culprit. Many people’s “AFib” appears to be triggered by coffee, alcohol, excess sugar, wheat gluten, excessive salt, lack of sleep, and MSG. Another noted cause of “AFib” is magnesium deficiency. When you really understand what contributes to “AFib,” it’s easier to see that it may be improved (or hopefully reversed entirely) without heart rhythm medications or surgical procedures.

“AFib” isn’t usually life-threatening in people who are otherwise healthy. If, however, you have diabetes, high blood pressure or other diagnosed heart issues, “AFib” is considered more dangerous and life-threatening. While “AFib” tends to occur in patients 65 years and older, it can and does happen to younger people especially in our society.

Biggest “AFib” Fear Is Increased Risk For Strokes

Most mainstream medical practitioners properly prescribe blood thinners to patients with AFib. Unfortunately, those blood thinning medications can lead to more serious issues. While stroke is a risk to be prevented, there are other natural ways to consider as well when looking to manage the formation of blood clots that cause stroke.

Don’t Believe The Fibs About AFib

If you’ve experienced “AFib” and it has rectified itself, you still benefit from a visit to an integrative doctor who can test for heavy metals in your urine and who offers chelation therapy and other natural methods for managing “AFib,” Please reach out by calling my office and setting up a consultation to help you reduce the fears you may have about this most common occurrence and learn about treatments that can give you hope to live healthfully without prescription medications or surgery.
