Doctors & patients are saying about 'Beat Your A-Fib'...


"If I had [your book] 10 years ago, it would have saved me 8 years of hell.”

"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...."

"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,

"...masterful. You managed to combine an encyclopedic compilation of information with the simplicity of presentation that enhances the delivery of the information to the reader. This is not an easy thing to do, but you have been very, very successful at it."

Ira David Levin, heart patient, 
Rome, Italy

"Within the pages of Beat Your A-Fib, Dr. Steve Ryan, PhD, provides a comprehensive guide for persons seeking to find a cure for their Atrial Fibrillation."

New FAQ: Which antibiotics are less liable to cause an A-Fib attack?

A question from Ellen McCall lead me to turn to our world-wide A-Fib.com Advisory Board for an answer. Several EPs shared their opinions, research data and insights from their practices in answer to this question:

FAQ: “Which antibiotics are less liable to cause an A-Fib attack? How is Clindamycin for dental work? In the past I reacted to Azithromycin and Advil.”

Our A-Fib Advisory Board Offers Expert Opinions

One EP’s response: “There is no particular association that I can think of or have seen with antibiotics, but likely more of a personal idiosyncratic reaction to the drug. Everybody is different and has a different trigger.”

From another EP: “Most [antibiotics] do not change the way the heart’s electrical system functions other than prolonging the QT interval, which should have the opposite effect. In the quinolone family, (antibiotics) like Levofloxacin and Ciprofloxacin act like antiarrhythmics.

However, some antibiotics have worse gastric tolerance effects like Azithromycin and Erythromycin which can become a trigger for A-Fib by GI stimulation such as nausea or reflux. Medication to counter that side effect can be used, such as acid reducers.”
