2 weeks ago I awoke at 7:30 AM with that all too familiar feeling banging in my chest. My Afib was back. Normally, I have an episode that lasts 24 hours, but this has been going on for 2 weeks.

I spent my last Saturday in the ER because I was having difficulty breathing, my blood pressure was abnormally low, and well I just didn’t feel good at all.

After running various blood tests, ensuring I did not have a heart attack they determined the needed to start me on blood thinners. Funny thing was that they did not want to start me on them. I am too young they said for it.

So after seeing my cardiologist, who discussed with my wife at length what could happen to me without taking the blood thinners, stroke, pulmonary embolism, and heart attack. She looked at me and said please take them.

So now I am waiting to have a cardiac ablation performed which carries its own complications.

Some people, like myself, have to deal with atrial fibrillation and high blood pressure. Although I have my blood pressure under control, I still suffer from Afib. Dr. Berg talks about the best tip for atrial fib. This is based on the book, Beat Your A-Fib by Steve Ryan Ph.D.

This condition is usually triggered by a magnesium deficiency. It can also be a potassium deficiency. However, it is difficult to determine these mineral differences because of where most of the minerals are located – inside the cell.
