Hey, this is Dr. Jack Wolfson, The Paleo Cardiologist of The Drs. Wolfson and today I want to talk to you about natural ways to treat atrial fibrillation.
Now, first of, atrial fibrillation is a cardiology diagnoses. It's a heart diagnosis. It's an irregular heart rhythm where the hear fibrillates or the top part of the heart, the atrial, just kinda quivers and shakes.
And with atrial fibrillation it gets more common as we get older. Clearly there are reasons for it and those reasons are the same as pretty much what causes all disease and that's poor nutrition. And environmental pollutants, and a lack of sunshine, and a lack of sleep. It's a lack of living the healthy lifestyle.
Now, the problem with atrial fibrillation is that a couple things, number one, it can cause symptoms such as shortness of breathe. It can cause light headiness or dizziness. It is a serious medical diagnosis.
The other thing is, in some people, they have a higher risk of stroke with atrial fibrillation. So make sure to talk to your doctor, about anything that I'm discussing in this video, to decide if it's the right plan for you.
But, the reality of the is, is that atrial fibrillation in the medical world, they treat it with dangerous pharmaceuticals. Some of which you have to be hospitalized before you can safely be on those and you have to be hospitalized because they have to monitor you to make sure you don't die from the drug.
Now, there's other drugs that they use, that are more common, that they can use on an outpatient basis, but those are not very successful. There's a procedure that they do called a cardioversion where they zap your heart back to a normal rhythym. And that is not very successful either.
And then ultimately they'll go towards a procedure called an ablation. Where they burn the tissue in the top part of the heart and that is successful fifty percent of the time, according to the medical literature. And that's with the best doctors in the world that are doing that procedure.
So let's talk about how we can prevent and actually get rid of a lot of cases of atrial fibrillation by giving the body what it needs. First of I wanna talk to you, Paleo nutrition. Eating the foods that our ancestors consumed, loaded with omega 3s, loaded with vitamins and minerals, organic, responsible, Paleo foods.
Number two? Get Sunshine! The sun gives us the energy. It fuels the body. It fuels the ATP, and when you have good energy coming in from the sun, you charge up those mitochondria. You make all the energy in the cell and you do some incredible things. And the body just works normally... I've seen this in my patients. You crank up levels of vitamin D, and with high levels of vitamin D, you reduce the risk of atrial fibrillation.
Number three, get your sleep. When you're not sleeping, all bad things happen. Our ancestors went to sleep with the sundown and they woke with the sun rise. So get your sleep. Sleep, sleep your way to resolving atrial fibrillation.
Number four, get adjusted. See your chiropractor. Your chiropractor restores neurologic balance to the body. The balance of autonomic nervous system where the parasympathetics and sympathetics.
The doctor of chiropractic is uniquely skilled in removing what is called vertebral subluxation by using the spine to adjust the nervous system.
Chiropractic, we get tremendous results when I work in conjunction with a chiropractic. And then also getting away from chemicals. We know the environmental pollutants and environmental toxins and air pollution and heavy metal toxicity. All those things are linked to atrial fibrillation so get that out.
And then lastly, but not least, number 6. Use evidence based supplements. Omega three supplementation, magnesium, potassium, taurine ... there’s a lot of different things that I use, very successfully, in my practice to help with atrial fibrillation prevention and reversal.
We don't need to go down the dangerous medical route. Work with a holistic doctor. Find a local doctor of local chiropractic and get healthy today.

How to Eat Paleo on a Budget
I am a 55-year-old female, 5"5" tall and lost 31 pounds going from 151 to 120 lbs. doing IF 18/6. I started experiencing afib (pulse going from 55 beats a minute to between 120 beats a minute) after I hit around 125 lbs. I exercise three times or more a week for an hour and half each session, have low blood pressure usually around 100 over 60 or 70. I chalked up the afib to low electrolytes and started making a homemade ketorade 640 mg of potassium with sodium and apple cider vinegar) plus taking up to 500 mg of magnesium citrate a day.
I still occasionally get the afib when in a fasted state. Sometimes simply from taking a step or coughing. I'm wondering if another cause could be: as a kid I was diagnosed with asthma and the pediatrician immediately jumped to last resort medications (I'm sure less severe measures would have worked but I was a kid and not able to advocate for myself) theophylline and prednisone daily for at least four months before the side-effects became so severe I refused to take the meds. It gave me "moon face" and caused me to go from being normal weight to overweight to the point I felt I sloshed when I walked.
It took through my sophomore year in high school to go to a fairly normal weight. All through most of my adulthood I've taken minor doses of albuterol to keep the asthma in check during episodes. Since keto/IF (over a year now) I haven't had any asthma episodes.
I'm wondering if my minor fat stores during the fasted state could now be releasing old/stored albuterol/epinephrine/theophylline causing my afib.
We now know fat stores toxins—not the liver. Anyone, any thoughts?
I'm wondering if these tips will help with SVT related to Wolff White syndrome? I noticed beta blockers were making it worse and am holding off on the THIRD beta blocker my GP & cardiologist is testing on me. I have found holding my breath while exhaling, coughing, ice packs and Ibuprofen have all worked MUCH better than the beta blockers, but would love to not have these attacks all together.
I had an ablation in 2000 for SVT and it was life changing. Done as an outpatient. I'm sure that the electrophysiolgist that are performing the procedure today are well adept in finding the right section of the heart to scorch. The only drawback could be having a pacemaker if not done correctly. My daughter was diagnosed with WPW which was corrected also with an ablation. Get it done.
I know everyone has different experiences, this is mine. When I feel my afib starting...I hold my breath, strain real hard like I'm trying to squeeze out a car for about 5 seconds...then release. This has helped me everytime since I got diagnosed. I hope this method may help others.
I truly believe in what you are saying, but what about guys like me. I’m 45 and I have persistent A-fib. I had an ablation 8 months ago and I have felt like I have had a new lease on life. But now the afib is back!! I am so distraught. I have been working out, getting sun, lots of vitamins and supplements and I now I just don’t know what to do!!! I can’t get an ablation every year!! Please help me.
I had Chronic Afib caused by a bad Mitral Valve...I had surgery at Cleveland Clinic in Ohio 10 yr's ago and now have a mechanical valve...Took a lot of time to actually find my problem but I had a good Dr. and I am so thankful...Still, have some irregularities from time to time but nothing like it was...Contact Cleveland clinic they have a very good reputation...Wouldn't hurt to talk to someone, I know it can be overwhelming...Prayer was my solace... Ask for Jesus to help you...I know he helped me the whole time...Peace and Blessing to you I pray...
Try liquid Iodine. Start very very slowly with tiny doses and work your way up. " Nascent"Iodine and "Lugol's". It's common to be low on Iodine and who knows, it may be at least partially the cause. Look into it.
Charge up the mitochondria with the sun? Mitochondria are "charged" with glucose and oxygen. Being able to read this means the mitochondria in your brain (which hopefully for you, and the case for most people) has never seen the sun. I doubt many patients who has underwent brain surgery did so in a room without a skylight.
Vitamin D is essential to heart health and the best source is from the sun... 15 minutes a day in direct sunlight is good. Low Vit D causes an irregular heartbeat. Also low iron, potassium, and magnesium. Also, have your thyroid checked, an out of whack thyroid can cause problems later in life.. this is the problem I am having now.

If the spine is misaligned, wouldn't that always be visible on X-rays?
Is this a feeling of bubbling round the heart? Said this to my cardiologist and he just looked askance at me. Am reading your book at the moment and eaten similar Palo for two years. Am 83 and quite well other than this. Treadmill test in two weeks. UK by the way.

You don't know how much this means to me to hear this video ! I have been put on Apixaban, it doesn't suit me and gives me alarming symptoms. I don't intend to take it much longer no matter what the doctors say, they say there is no cure for fibrillation. I believe in natural cures so I'm interested in finding an alternative.
+conner sucks Please type " The dangers of Apixaban " and Google it there's a lot of information on YouTube about Apixaban and Rivaroxaban. BOTH HAVE. CAUSED MANY DEATHS ! In fact in America there are law suits going on by families suing over the many deaths these drugs have caused. I was prescribed Apixaban ( I think I said ) and I won't take it. These Pharma drugs are poisons. Have you tried crushing ginger and garlic, ? Pour hot water on, distill and drink some, preferably in the morning. Also in each week make yourself some lemon and honey drinks, and get a Water Filterer. What the garlic and ginger does, is it relieves the blood of TOXINS and lifts the burden from your heart because the kidneys can filter more efficiently. . Take GREEN. TEA daily with a small amount of TUMERIC in it. It tastes revolting but will do wonders. Drink LOTS OF WATER, it will make a vast difference for you. Try and have some wheatgrass powder on food, but again, don't overdo it. Drink apple juice, but not every day, probably better to eat the fruit. Cut out as much dairy and bread as you can.
The human body isn't designed to cope with chemical treatments, and five years is all they work for, then they will attack the physiology. This is a proven fact ! At the moment, I am still on Ramipril and one Asprin daily 75 mg but even that upsets my stomach. , the Bisoprolol. gave me fits or seizures - whatever, it was very frightening. My friends girlfriend keeled over and died in the street last year after a year on Apixaban, she was only 40. Please research these evil drugs, I don't think they are here to cure people but to deplete the surplus population ! Look at some Dr Josh Axe videos and there's a Dr Wollock on YouTube who you can get Tangy Tangerine from which is a wonderful heart remedy. Dr.John Bergman has a lot to say about Fibulation and Arrhythmia. also on YouTube. I don't want to swamp you with info though. Get back to me if you like, and let me know how you are improving. My email is firstname.lastname@example.org
Yes, he is. I watched an interview he did with Mike Adams, the Health Ranger. If I remember correctly his wife is a Chiropractor, and he is a Cardiologist. He's written a book, and is very knowledgeable.
This video is not how to treat AfiB but how to prevent one.
Healthy people don't even have a clue what it is. Apart of commonly known term as Arythmia.
And how this doc arrived to these conclusions?
I did my own extensive digging after I was diagnosed with one. Having multiple arythmias (all 4 chambers affected) Thus far I had 2 cardiac ablations and most of the "episodes" are gone but not all. The rest is treated by medication and changing my life style; basically "right diet" that doesn't much differ from what I was consuming before the diagnosis. Never been drinking or smoking and I was getting plenty of sunshine. So this video is rubbish. It might apply to some people but not me.
No. Pvc are socalled ‘skipped’ beats and technically not an abnormality provided they also occur in healthy people. Afib is an irregular heartbeat that in which the beat is not sinus anymore. Although afib can also in theory in normal healthy its more often an actual heart problem. But bear in mind afib occurs more comonly when u get older.
Hi my mom got AFib for 3 months and 1 Cardioversion (unsuccsecful)
She is 62 and according to her doctors her heart and lungs are healthy. Can she testore her heart Back to normal? We fear the worst and the meds she takes are making her sick.
Thanks Dr. Wolfson, these Afib and AFlutter are probably directly caused by EMF interference with VGCCs, ref Dr. Pall et al. Exponential increases in WiFi are interfering with Voltage Gated Ion Channels, as you know PAIN killer work by blocking Na+ channel. the Ca++ channels are critical to the heart ... Dr. Pall has shown biological application which you Doctors do not understand.

1.Eat Paleo 2. Get Sunshine (with high levels of Vit D you reduce the risk of Afib)
3. Sleep plenty even go to bed with sunset and rise with the sun
4. Get chiropractor adjustments for spine health 5.Avoid Chemical, Heavy metals and Toxins
6. Use evidence based supplements.... magnesium, potassium. taurine, are a few of them.
aluisious no, it's NOT
A chiropractor is the reason I finally got relief from multiple issues I was having that no MD could help me with!! For decades I tried going to regular doctors but the medication they kept putting me on where only causing me other symptoms while the issues I was having were getting worse and affecting my everyday life.
Within my first adjustment from the highly qualified chiropractor, I noticed relief.. by my third visit I was more than 50% better which was the best I had fell in so many years..
just like with anything, there are good chiropractors and bad ones. you have to do your research and find the right one but trust me when you do, they are AMAZING
If you don't believe in them for some reason that's fine but it's your loss.. don't bash them for those of us who know they help
The class of drugs that Levitra, Viagra, Stendra, and Cialis belong to are called PDE5 inhibitors. They work by relaxing tight blood vessels, allowing more blood to surge into the penis and cause an erection, says Gregory Bales, M.D., an associate professor of urology at the University of Chicago.
The little pills do the trick for more than two-thirds of men with Viagra protects the heart (ED). They also work for guys who simply need them for a short time to get their “confidence back,” says Michael Eisenberg, M.D., director of male reproductive medicine and surgery at Stanford University.
