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.”

Roy Salmon, Patient, A-Fib Free,
Adelaide, Australia

"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

"...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."

Don’t Delay. Get Your A-Fib Taken Care of. It Won’t Go Away by Itself.

Advice from Patients Now Free from the Burden of Atrial Fibrillation

Daniel D.

Daniel Doane, Sonora, California, USA, A-Fib free after Totally Thoracoscopic (TT) Mini-Maze surgery:

“I didn’t realize how continued A-Fib so drastically remodels your heart. ‘A-FIB BEGETS A-FIB’ was the phrase that brought it home to me.
Every instance of A-Fib changed my heart, remodeled the substrate, and made it more likely to happen again. Get your A-Fib taken care of. It won’t go away. It may seem to get better, but it will return. 

Roger M.

Roger Meyer, Columbus, Ohio, from three generations of A-Fib, had the Cox-Maze surgery:

“I can now say, first hand, that there ARE bad effects from A-Fib and especially from A-Fib that is not treated early. I now wish I had had some of the today’s more aggressive A-Fib treatment options which weren’t available to me in my younger years.
My best advice: Don’t let A-Fib wreak its havoc untreated!” 

Joan S.

Joan Schneider, Ann Arbor, MI, from Pill-in-the-Pocket therapy to A-Fib free after catheter ablation:

“My advice to other AF patients: Know that paroxysmal AF becomes chronic. Drugs only work for so long. Heart modification will occur, and options will become few. Get with a great EP  and/or AF clinic and find your cure.” 

Don’t Delay—A-Fib Begets A-Fib. 

Do not remain in A-Fib indefinitely if possible. Your A-Fib episodes may become more frequent and longer, often leading to continuous (Chronic) A-Fib. Each A-Fib attack changes to some extent the cellular matrix in your heart’s electrical system leading to more A-Fib episodes. The abnormal rhythm in your heart causes changes and enlarges your atria (called remodeling), making it work harder and harder over time. (However, some people never progress to more serious A-Fib stages.) Unless too feeble, there’s no good reason to just leave someone in A-Fib.

A-Fib is a progressive disease. Controlling symptoms with drugs, but leaving patients in A-Fib, overworks and weakens the heart, leads to fibrosis, stretches/expands the atrial heart walls, increases the risk of stroke, develops (congestive) heart failure, and leads to dimentia because of reduced blood flow to the brain.

Drug therapies are never curative. Don’t just manage your A-Fib with medication. See Editorial: Leaving the Patient in A-Fib—No! No! No!

As anyone who’s had A-Fib can tell you, being back in sinus is wonderful! Sinus Rhythm Begets Sinus Rhythm. Your heart develops muscle memory which makes your heart want to stay in sinus.

Don’t delay—Seek your Cure.
