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. It is recommended to take a type of magnesium called angstrom, which is 1 million times smaller than other forms.

I just watched this video and want to say that I experienced exactly what Dr. Berg is talking about. About 4 years ago I developed afib about a week after passing a stubborn kidney stone at which time I was somewhat dehydrated. Following a bit of internet research I found that the loss of electrolytes from dehydration may be a factor contributing to afib. It was also my understanding that calcium and magnesium compete in the body, so I stopped taking my calcium supplement and started taking a magnesium supplement instead (in addition to flecainide, digoxyn, and a blood thinner called apixaban that my cardiologist prescribed).
My afib continued constantly for about 3 months, but a week before my highly dreaded electrical cardioversion was scheduled, I returned to normal hearth rhythm and have remained in normal rhythm since (nearly 4 years now). I ditched the prescription meds but continue taking a magnesium supplement because it is my understanding that although serum magnesium may test normal (which mine did at the time), the amount of magnesium in the cells may be deficient, which possibly could cause me to go back into afib. While doing my internet research, I remember reading a comment by an elder gentleman who didn't have afib until after his colonoscopy (which prep procedure does cause some dehydration that can throw one's electrolytes out of balance) and he was still on afib meds years following his colonoscopy. Hope this info helps and that supplementing with magnesium works for someone else out there.
In the USA blacks kill more than twice as many White people annually, they also kill ~40% of the cops (mostly White cops) that are killed annually while only being 13% of the total US population, and *per capita* they commit the most race-based "hate crimes." My point: your shirt makes me think you're low IQ retarded so it's hard to take you seriously on important issues such as health. Seriously.
I had a resting heart rate of over 200bpm, I had emergency surgery and after a year, I'm still at 170 resting... I intend to do natural remedies now. I also have Clonic-Tonic seizures and Deep Vein Thrombosis. 14 medications aren't working. I'm 51 going on 90 I think. I still work but I really feel drained. I've always been a vegetable eater, steamed not canned. Thanks for the information.
People need to know about the risks associated with Apixaban (Eliquis). There is no antidote for Apixaban. If you happen to require emergency life saving surgery while taking Apixaban, you will likely die while waiting for the drug to dissipate from your system. This is what happened to my father. His GP never informed him of this risk when prescribing Apixaban.
It's so disheartening "pun", I'm 36 and I recently had a major afib attack... I was hospitalized and my heart beat was 195bpm! My dr never discussed nutrition or mineral deficiency despite taking blood and running tests. Also ekg. All "normal" I'm told. They just scratch their heads and prescribe calcium channel blockers.
Thank you Dr Berg for educating so many people on what's real and more importantly what works!
Low mg++ and low K+ are more commonly related to V Tach and LQTs as compared to AFib. .
Atrial fibrillation is mainly due to ischemic heart disease, valvular heart diseases or secondary to other illness like COPD. .
You cannot correct valvular or ischemic diseases by eating more magnesium and potassium. .
Secondly warfarin/ xeralto is not the treatment of A fib , its given to prevent the stroke. .
The main treatment is to correct the underlying heart disease and to control rate and rhythm. .
I am surprised that in every part of the world 'such' people are present which misguide public. .
And the stomach problem is the cause of AFib . . Hahaha. . Its just hilarious. .
Sleep Apnea and High Blood Presure cause Heart Issues?
I have had symptoms pop up all at the same time out of no where.
Can't sleep because I damaged my lungs and then my heart rate started sky rocketing and stays like that all day everyday and trying to sleep like that is next to impossible.
Dr Berg - I don't understand about Calcium shutting down the absorption of Magnesium. I'd heard you were supposed to take them together. My mom takes Bluebonnet brand CalMag supplements every single night. She started doing it for her bowels years ago because she would suffer from constipation if she didn't. Last December she was diagnosed with Afib and she hates taking Xarelto. Last December was a really hard time emotionally. My dad was in the hospital and in rehab and I'm wondering if that could have contributed to her afib diagnosis too. (My mom suffers from generalized anxiety.) Do I need to ask her to switch to a magnesium only supplement? She takes the cal mag because she also has osteopenia and her sister in law says she reversed her own osteoporosis with cal mag supplements. Please advise.
BUT, here’s what recently happened to me. I was having heart palpitations and irregular heart rate. Along with that a tightness in the neck and sleep problems. To make a long story short, goitrogens from cruciferous veggies were interfering with thyroid function. I cut back on cruciferous veggies and all issues disappeared. Maybe some people can consume the amount of vegetables suggested here, but it ain’t me. I/we can get the necessary minerals and nutrients from other food sources. Also, potassium comes in powder form which allows for more than the 99mg capsules.
Paul Guru And to elaborate, my thyroid issue started because I was eating to many goitrogens like raw kale and spinach and peanuts. They can block the thyroid from using iodine. So I increased table salt but had to also increase potassium at the same time. Problem solved.
I can't get magnesium because I take Proton Pump Inhibitors. I tried to go without them, impossible. The pain I feel from acid reflux is like a heart attack and lasts for hours. One day I had a spasm in my esophagus and it was horrific, so I don't dare go without. Sigh...I am considered a high risk for stroke for several factors, mostly lifestyle, so I am changing that. One thing people have to understand. There is presently no cure for A Fib. Even an ablation is not a cure. Once you have A Fib you have it. It's done. But there are things that can help you.
HI, you may have saved my life. I have Afib, Chf, Bradycardia, Svt, Pvc. All of this including Addisons disease, hypothyroidism, diabetes, Ra and osteo arthritis, copd and asthma. Every single day is a struggle but I'm so blessed to still be here. I'm 58. I'm trying everything I can to keep going. Thanks for giving through your video. Blessings
A-Fib is an inflammation problem, too. When I'm on the monitor and my pulse spikes up to 180 or so I take IV Benadryl/100mg and liquid CoQ10/200mg and Magnesium/200mg and my pulse rate drops like a rock and I take a nice nap. You can't put a patient on any one of these so Doctors have no interest. I can't pay them or invite them to Hawaii for a conference.
started working out hard and eating after 2pm light fast - drinking a 16-20 oz veggie and fruit smoothie then a salad with beans and banana little to no salt or oils at night Sunday-Thursday Friday is date night eat a small pizza r sandwich some kind of meat seemed to work for 8-10 mo. very well then out of the blue started up again still using the same formula had my original medication thank god had to us it light headed you said something about the stomach that's where my issue begins lot of pressure in my upper abdominal then gos to my head and then my hart beats fast
I went from 265 too 248 4 weeks .I have afib. I take 5000mg vitamin D3 with 200mg of vitamin K2. High quality. Natural calm magnesium 2 times a day,I purchased a bp monitor called reli.on my no goes from 160 + over 100 plus them it goes to
135 - to 85- why I've been doing all the right things
Great information! I just don't understand why our personal physicians don't have anything to say about nutrient deficiancy in disease treatment if that really plays such a big role. In Junior High Phys. Ed the coach told us to drink tomato juice if we experienced muscle cramps which was remedied by the potassium in the juice. Later I heard bananas, mushrooms and Morton's Lite Salt are good sources.
I'm 30 and in rather good shape, normal BP readings etc. Mine starts at night with heart rate going up and then it start, skipping beats every 10th beat or so. It seems Cayenne pepper helps to stop it. Anyway I'm really concerned about it.
Doctor I kind of thought eating a lot of vegetables was a waste of effort when it comes to minerals because they say that our soil is depleted of its minerals in the vegetables will have very little mineral content to them
Mike Saari best to get home grown or ones grown off of fields treated with manue, blood, ECT. This helps return nutrition back to the soil. But yes commercial growing doesn't always put back nutrition so their crops are more likely to be lacking.
What if I don't/can't eat veggies? The only ones I eat are potatoes and SOMETIMES corn & baked beans. Otherwise, I get SOME tomato in things like pizza sauce or tomato juice when I use it with cheese & mac & hamburger. I'm about to turn 61 and have never eaten veggies in the past 45 to 50 years. Until I got this damn cold 3 weeks ago, I never had any heart problems!
Reverse osmosis water caused my afib,its 99.9% pure,no contaminants and no minerals... bottled water R O also bicarb is add for taste so i bought 2 bottles of minerals from the vitamin Shopp and treat my water per directions. I beat my afib in two weeks with Dr Bergs electrolites and the mineral water....with added magnisium supplements some times 800 to 1200 mgs a day....
Thanks for sharing this video. I have been researching angtrom magnesium and apart from finding it hard to get or even shipped to Australia im not sure im looking at correct one. How does angtrom magnesium 3000ppm sound? There is several different types. Thanks for your help! !
im pretty sure my stomach is my problem. but i got burnt out on salads. i was starting to feel better cause i added this cabbage kale woth seeds and nuts to breakfast and lunch one egg every morning and 4oz soy milk n yogurt in am. but it got boring. well now im paying for it. and i feel like crap and chest pains are coming back. being rebellious or non complient can kill you! i dont want to die! i have beautiful grandchildren! they think i am it! Lol thank you dr berg for helping me try to stay on track and reminding me of all the fact. i dont know how you retain all of it. i do think more drs should be as passionate about ppl and how thier quality of life is so important. you and your lovely wife are sweet. i think you are wonderful. i wanted to ask...is thier a reason besides my thinking about what it is that is starting to gag me when eating meat sometimes? ive always ate meat no proble. but is starting to be a problem. i know i need the nutrition meat supplies so i just put it away n try later.
I had an ablation 3 years ago.. best thing I ever did. Haven't had a problem since, however, I do all the preventative lifestyle actions to minimise the chance of it ever coming back, so will look at following this advice on vegetable intake
I take Calm magnesium powder 1 tsp a day , half at night and half in the morning, would that source be ok? I really like that powder, I dilute it in hot water and add a touch of OJ.Should I stop adding orange juice?
not necessarily true my afib is caused by a hiatal hernia and acid reflux affecting the cardiac chamber and my vagus nerve! If listened to my stupid cardiologist I would have been on beta blockers and had an ablation surgery!!!! simple diet and eating practices control mine just fine I don't have afib anymore!
I'm a 54 year old male. I live an active life, eat very healthy and also a marathon runner. The last two years, I feel very tired and nausea while running. My hands are always cold, pale and tingling. I've night cramps that keep me up all night. Two months ago, I was diagnosed with afib, and I'm in afib all the time. My doctor put me on blood thinner Eliquis. They did EGK, ultrasounds, put scope inside my heart and cardioversion. My doctor gave me three options: 1) meds for life 2) ablation 3) pacemaker. I have not convinced in these options and I started reading about Afib. My symptoms are almost the same as described for the magnesium deficiency. It has been 4 days now I stopped drinking coffee and taking Magnesium Taurate 375mg /day. I feel a little better, less tingling in my hands and they show a little pinkish instead of pale. I believe Magnesium does help. I have seen several doctors, but they all anxious to treat the problem instead of learning what caused it. For now, I just take magnesium and I'll update if any changes. Thanks,
Thank you Sir! Dr! You are giving me hope to beat this. I haven’t been diagnosed because the clinic I went to is slow with Physicians assistance who treat their patients like garbage. So after 7 days of not hearing from them (clinic) I asked when will I get The results back from the blood work and urine sample I gave the first day I went to see physicians assistant . So that’s when they told me that I was deficient in folic acid and vitamin D which gives me the sense that I’m having an Anxiety attack while trying to sleep. So I got home taking folic acid now and vitamin D prescribe through the doctor and that helped for me feeling like my left hand and arm was numb completely but now after a month of taking my supplements, I feel my heart again the same way that made me go to the emergency room which is rapid heart beat, & tingles only on my left side. And I did have tightness of chest. So I will start consuming salads, (I do take a teaspoon of Apple cider vinegar - with mother) to help my heart in any way I can.Appreciate your Viddo Doctor!
Dr. Berg I have has 3 cardiac ablations and still have irregular bouts of Afib. I have had over 100 cardio versions
in my lifetime.....Im going to try Magnesium as Iam ketogenic coupled with IF. Like you said my blood tests are completely normal including electrolytes. So I will heed your advise, lots of leafy greens and a Magnesium supplement. Thank you for posting on this subject
I get ectopic beats and have been taking mega magnesium BUT , also had acid reflux which my doc put me on omeprozole for which reduces acid and could explain why the magnesium wasn't really working
I'll try just taking the mag for a month and see if it improves
Thanks for the info
And the MD's will tell you not to eat to many greens because it can cause clotting. My father had a fib and he threw a clot before he could get on his cardizem. It's nothing to fool with. Not against eating healthy at all. Just confused.
Dr. Berg do you recommend taking your electrolyte powder for this condition? I started on this about a month ago. I have never been diagnosed with afib but my heart does flutter often and Ive noticed it quite often after eating a meal. Possibly is low stomach acid.
Thank you Dr. Berg for explaining that Afib is an electrical problem with the Heart. It increases possibility of Stroke 5 to 7 x. Electrolytes,- magnesium and potassium are needed in the cells. Vegetables have these but you may need more. A very acid stomach is needed to absorb magnesium. To much calcium can be problematic that is why doctors prescribe a calcium blocker. Low Vit D level will prevent the absorption of both calcium and magnesium, try Angtrom brand of Magnesium due to small particles , increase salads and veggies for potassium.
hello Eric! THANK YOU sooo much for the info. I couldn't sleep because my heArt was fluttering so bad! i watched several videos on fibrillation but I found yours to be the most informative and personally relatable because I do have stomach and eating problems which are obviously causing low electrolytes like magnesium and potassium. rather than taking potentially dangerous medications I've been trying to find the root of the problem and I suspected it was my diet ..I was almost brought to tears when you mentioned the electrolyte, magnesium ,connection. I believe if things have the proper electrical frequencies in nature they will run correctly. diffinitly going to change my diet immediately 😉 THANKs again!
Dr berg I can not thank you enough I am so glad that I decided to check out some of your video clips on deficiency on potassium I have c.h.f and my doctors been talking me they don't know how I got it for three years now I've been looking for you you have ahead light on my condition beyond I have symtems of potassium deficiency and the list goes on thanks for putting this out there for people to see and get closer .on there conditions .
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.
