Steve’s Shopping Guides to Recommended A-Fib-Related Products
Steve offers these shopping guides to help you sort through the enormous array of products of interest to A-Fib patients and their families. While the following brands and products are available from Amazon.com, they are also available from iHerb.com and other retailers. Prices will vary.
A-Fib Survival Kit for the Newly Diagnosed
Our list: Your first experiences with Atrial Fibrillation have changed your life in a number of ways. This ‘Survival Kit’ helps get you started when first diagnosed. As a former A-Fib patient (cured since 1998) Steve highly recommends these five items plus a bonus (our favorite medical dictionary).
Our list: For patients and their families, these are our recommended A-Fib reference books as well as books on patient empowerment, unmasking health statistics, magnesium, and other minerals and supplements, marketing schemes of the pharmaceutical industry and a medical dictionary. See also, our infographic: My Best A-Fib Reference Books for Patients and Their Families.
Magnesium & Potassium Supplements for A-Fib Patients
Our list: Most A-Fib and A-Flutter patients are deficient in Magnesium (Mg) and Potassium (K) which can force the heart into fatal arrhythmias. To learn more, see our page on Mineral Deficiencies.
When choosing to supplement your intake of magnesium and potassium, the plethora of products and brands can be overwhelming. These are the products and brands Steve uses and recommends (plus a great book).
Our list: Steve recommends seven mineral supplements to promote and maintain a healthy heart. (See our article, ‘Natural’ Supplements for a Healthy Heart.) When shopping for these supplements, wading through the sea of products and brands can be a daunting task.
To get you started Steve has listed a couple choices for each of the following: BCAA+G, Taurine, Unbiquinol CoQH, GPLC, Omega-3 Fish Oils, Ribose and Hawthorne Berry.
My list: Do you want to monitor your heart rate when exercising or when performing physically demanding activities (i.e. mowing the lawn, loading equipment, etc.). Consider a consumer ‘DIY” monitor. To learn more see my article: Guide to DIY Heart Rate Monitors (HRMs) & Handheld ECG Monitors.
Steve has sorted through the plethora of products and brands of DIY heart rate monitors and recommends several in a range of prices and features.
