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.”

"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."

Celebs with A-Fib: Dodger Relief Pitcher Kenley Jansen Pulled from Game

Dodger Kenley Jansen – Celebs with A-Fib

Dodger relief Pitcher Kenley Jansen had been hospitalized in 2011 for Atrial Fibrillation and had an ablation in October 2012. Since then, he’s had no diagnosed recurrences of atrial fibrillation.

Update June 2015: Jansen was held out of relief work in the Dodger vs Colorado Rockies game as a health precaution. Jansen said he alerted the team’s trainers that he had an upset stomach and headache in the first inning. He was treated with intravenous fluids and given some tests, including the EKG, which found that his heart was in a normal rhythm. Because his blood pressure was elevated and because of his history of A-fib, the consulting doctor recommended Jansen not pitch in the game.

“Kenley’s had some history, and I don’t think anybody’s willing, at this point, to take any chances with his health over trying to win a game,” Dodgers manager Don Mattingly said.

Anxiety Might be a Factor

Noting acute anxiety as a primary symptom of atrial fibrillation, Jansen said his symptoms might have arisen because of his worry over having another episode of atrial fibrillation. He also thinks the mile-high Denver elevation played a part. “It gets you panicked a little bit,” he said.
