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"

magnesium deficiency

Success with Dr. Dean’s Liquid Magnesium Supplement ‘ReMag’

Dianne T. from Mesquite, Nevada, wrote me about how magnesium supplementation has mostly eliminated her A-Fib symptoms and restored her to normal sinus rhythm (NSR). She recommends liquid magnesium:

“I was diagnosed with A-Fib about 18 months ago, but as it turned out, I have PAC’s.  Of course I was told that these PACs will eventually turn into A-Fib. But I believe that irregular heartbeats, even A-Fib, can often be caused by a magnesium deficiency. After about a year on ReMag, my heart is mostly in NSR. It works!
Diane T. and Magnesium Deficiency at A-Fib.com

Dianne T.

Dr. Carolyn Dean has written an eBook about A-Fib and the magnesium connection: Atrial Fibrillation: Remineralize Your Heart [July 2015]. The good thing about her liquid magnesium product, REMAG™, is that you can take a therapeutic dose without the laxative effect. I was taking 900 mg daily but now I need less. I take about 600-750 daily.
I have heard many testimonials from others suffering from A-Fib and other arrhythmia disorders who have had the same experience as I have had. But it does take time. It took me about 6-8 months before I really noticed a big difference. It doesn’t work over night, and it can get complicated when taking meds. I wasn’t on any meds, so I didn’t have that issue.”

I’m thankful to Dianne for sharing her A-Fib success story of replenishing her Magnesium levels. Magnesium is useful for many muscle-related ailments and has rightfully been called the ‘miracle’ supplement.

Considering a Magnesium Supplement?

While Dianne is using Dr. Dean’s Remag product (about $18/month), I recommend you first try these less costly magnesium supplements. I take and recommend:

What's working for you? Share your tips at A-Fib.com

Email us what’s working for you.

Doctor’s Best High Absorption Magnesium (200 Mg Elemental), 240-Count (2-4 tablets a day). On Amazon.com that’s $13.84 for a 2–4 month supply (includes Free shipping for Prime Members). About $3.50 to $7 a month.

If sensitive to the laxative effect of Magnesium, I recommend:

Magnesium oil; Spray and rub into the skin; examples: Ancient Minerals Magnesium Oil and Life-flo Pure Magnesium Oil; 8 oz spray bottle lasts about 4 months. About: $2 to $4 a month.

Epson salt (magnesium sulfate); Any brand in bulk. $1.50 to $4.50 a pound. Less than $1 a bath. Dissolve 1 to 3 cups (or three handfuls) in full tub bath and soak for 30 minutes.

These Magnesium products can be used in tandem to maximize your Mg absorption. Read more about Atrial Fibrillation and Mineral Deficiencies in our Treatments section.

Be patient when supplementing Magnesium. It takes three to six months, or more, to replenish your depleted levels of Magnesium.

‘Doctor Health’ Radio: A-Fib Patients & Common Mineral Deficiencies

INTERVIEW: Dr David Snow, host of Doctor Health Radio, talks with Steve S. Ryan, PhD, publisher of A-Fib.com, about magnesium and potassium deficiencies, both common among A-Fib patients; how ‘calcium overload’ can actually bring on Atrial Fibrillation; other supplements to promote a healthy heart; and a few warnings for A-Fib patients.

Anyone in A-Fib is Almost Certainly Magnesium Deficient

Anyone in A-Fib Mg deficient - Lighter poster - 400 pix wide at 300 resWhy? Magnesium used to be plentiful in fruits, vegetable and grains, but decades of industrial-scale farming have stripped the soil of minerals like magnesium.

One study found that the nutrient content of crops has declined by as much as 40% since the 1950s. “It’s now is almost impossible to get adequate amounts of magnesium from food.”

At least 80% of Americans are deficient in magnesium consuming only about 270 mg of magnesium a day. While the Recommended Daily Allowance is 420 mg for adult males and 320 mg for adult females. (The RDAs is the minimum amount for a healthy person, not the recommended amount.)

Anyone in A-Fib is almost certainly magnesium deficient with a substantial cumulative deficiency over months and years.

To learn more about Magnesium, go to our Mineral Deficiencies page. If considering a supplement, read: Low Serum Magnesium Linked with A-Fib, by Lynn Haye; and Natural’ Supplements for a Healthy Heart.

Inspirational Quote: Anyone in A-Fib is Almost Certainly Mg Deficient

“Anyone in A-Fib is almost certainly magnesium deficient. An imbalance or deficiency in minerals like magnesium, potassium, and calcium can force the heart into fatal arrhythmias.”

Quote by Steve S. Ryan, former A-Fib patient, from his book, Beat Your A-Fib: The Essential Guide to Finding Your Cure (BeatYourA-fib.com). A-Fib-free since 1998 after focal point catheter ablation in Bordeaux, France.

Most US adults ingest only about 270 mg of magnesium a day, well below the modest magnesium RDAs of 420 mg for adult males and 320 mg for adult females. This creates a substantial cumulative deficiency over months and years.
