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"

A-FIB PATIENTS’ BEST ADVICE

From Beat Your A-Fib: The Essential Guide to Finding Your Cure, Chapter 12: Your Journey to a Cure. Advice from patients now free from the burden of Atrial Fibrillation:

Daniel Doane, Sonora, California, USA, shares his mistake:

“Don’t think that the medication is a long term solution. Don’t put up with nasty side effects. That was the mistake I made. I thought I could tough out the medication as long as I stayed out of A-Fib.” (pp. 152-162)

Terry DeWitt, Massachusetts, USA, advises act sooner than later:

Terry D.

“I knew I could continue on medication for several years, but I was concerned about the remodeling of my heart. …I would need an ablation…and sooner seemed better when my heart was still strong.”  (pp. 138-143)

Max Jussila, Shanghai, China, says meds are for the short term:

“Do not listen to your doctors if they suggests medication as a long-term solution!
Max Jussila, A-Fib Support Volunteer at A-Fib.com

Max J.

The doctors who see medication as a solution commit serious negligence and are ignorant of the terrible nature and consequences of Atrial Fibrillation.” (pp. 92-97)

Don’t Just Manage Your A-Fib with Meds. Seek your Cure.

According to Drs. Savelieva and Camm:

“The plethora of antiarrhythmic drugs currently available for the treatment of A-Fib is a reflection that none is wholly satisfactory, each having limited efficacy combined with poor safety and tolerability.”

In general, don’t expect miracles from current medications. Antiarrhythmic drugs are only effective for about 40% of patients; many can’t tolerate the bad side effects. When they do work, the drugs become less effective or stop working over time. To date, the magic pill that will cure your A-Fib probably doesn’t exist.

Drugs don’t cure A-Fib but merely keep it at bay.
