ABOUT 'BEAT YOUR A-FIB'...


"This book is incredibly complete and easy-to-understand for anybody. I certainly recommend it for patients who want to know more about atrial fibrillation than what they will learn from doctors...."

Pierre Jaïs, M.D. Professor of Cardiology, Haut-Lévêque Hospital, Bordeaux, France

"Dear Steve, I saw a patient this morning with your book [in hand] and highlights throughout. She loves it and finds it very useful to help her in dealing with atrial fibrillation."

Dr. Wilber Su Cavanaugh Heart Center, Phoenix, AZ

"Your book [Beat Your A-Fib] is the quintessential most important guide not only for the individual experiencing atrial fibrillation and his family, but also for primary physicians, and cardiologists."

Jane-Alexandra Krehbiel, nurse, blogger and author "Rational Preparedness: A Primer to Preparedness"



ABOUT A-FIB.COM...


"Steve Ryan's summaries of the Boston A-Fib Symposium are terrific. Steve has the ability to synthesize and communicate accurately in clear and simple terms the essence of complex subjects. This is an exceptional skill and a great service to patients with atrial fibrillation."

Dr. Jeremy Ruskin of Mass. General Hospital and Harvard Medical School

"I love your [A-fib.com] website, Patti and Steve! An excellent resource for anybody seeking credible science on atrial fibrillation plus compelling real-life stories from others living with A-Fib. Congratulations…"

Carolyn Thomas, blogger and heart attack survivor; MyHeartSisters.org

"Steve, your website was so helpful. Thank you! After two ablations I am now A-fib free. You are a great help to a lot of people, keep up the good work."

Terry Traver, former A-Fib patient

"If you want to do some research on AF go to A-Fib.com by Steve Ryan, this site was a big help to me, and helped me be free of AF."

2017 AF Symposium: New Reports on Reversing Fibrosis and Hypercoagulability & NOACs

I’ve been a busy writer since attending the 2017 AF Symposium in January. Here are two more summary reports.

Report 5Some Forms of Fibrosis May Be Reversible: Research with Overweight Sheep 

In a very hopeful study for Atrial Fibrillation patients, Dr. Stanley Nattel of the University of Montreal, Montreal, Canada concluded that some forms or types of fibrosis are indeed reversible.

He described his experiments with overweight sheep. A 30% weight lost reduced fibrosis as well as inflammation and incidence of A-Fib. Continue reading….

Report 6: Hypercoagulability May Cause A-Fib, NOACs May Prevent It 

Novel oral anticoagulants (NOACs) may both prevent and stop A-Fib, according to a thought-provoking hypothesis by Dr. Ulrich Schotten of the University of Maastricht, Maastricht, The Netherlands.

His different, somewhat contrary hypothesis flips the current thinking― that hypercoagulability increases and promotes A-Fib (versus A-Fib increasing hypercoagulability).

Working with specially designed mice with increased thrombin activity (hypercoagulated mice), Dr. Schotten found that these mice had increased atrial fibrosis and A-Fib, and a hypercoagulated state promotes atrial fibrosis…Continue reading….

See the entire list of my reports from the 2017 AF Symposium.
Look for three more reports soon.
