WHAT IS A-FIB?

A-fib is a short way of saying atrial fibrillation, which means the upper chambers of your heart aren't in sync with the lower chambers (ventricles). This is believed to cause an increased risk of stroke, especially if you have diabetes or are overweight, have shortness of breath, high blood pressure, valve or artery conditions.

HOW CAN YOU REDUCE YOUR RISK OF STROKE?

Things you can do to reduce your risk of stroke include taking garlic, hawthorn, olive leaf, dong quai, papaya, green vegetables, basil leaves, fish or fish oil, and doing yoga. See this link for more information about these approaches: http://www.natural-homeremedies.org/blog/natural-cure-for-atrial-fibrillation-afib/



WHAT OTHER SIMPLE THINGS CAN YOU DO TO REDUCE CHANCE OF STROKE?

Other things you can do are lose weight, exercise, limit salt, alcohol, and coffee. For more on these approaches, click on the link that follows: http://www.natural-homeremedies.org/blog/5-tips-for-managing-atrial-fibrillation/


WHAT DOES DR. WEILL SUGGEST FOR A-FIB?

Dr, Weill echoes the above suggestions and states that newly published research suggests that more than half of all cases of atrial fibrillation could be prevented by addressing common heart disease risk factors such as smoking, obesity, diabetes and high blood pressure. He also recommends: "Follow a protein-rich diet to ensure that you're getting enough magnesium and potassium, minerals that may prevent some arrhythmias. I also advise taking 500 mg of magnesium citrate or a chelated form of magnesium twice a day and an equal dose of calcium, if needed, to offset magnesium's laxative effect." For more of Dr. Weill's recommendations, click on the link that follows: http://www.drweil.com/drw/u/QAA400931/Alternatives-for-Atrial-Fibrillation.html

So, if you have these risk factors, it's prudent to make these lifestyle changes now, before you have to submit to medications with side effects and/or surgery. Please pass this article along to family or friends who could benefit by copying the address of this article from the search box at the top of the page and putting it into an email to them.

These suggestions are made for educational purposes only, they are not meant as prescriptions, but you may want to share them with your health care practitioner and see if he or she will help you plan the lifestyle changes you need to make.
