A-Fib Patient Story #9

BCAA With Gln (BCAA+G) Success Story

by Tom Lisak, 2004

“I had been diagnosed with paroxysmal A-Fib about 5 years ago.  Over time, the A-Fib sessions became more frequent (once a month to once a week) and of longer duration (a few hours to 5 days).  I had tried atenolol, digoxin, Cardizem, Diovan and Bystolic…all with no success.  My doctor wanted to put me on Coumadin and recommended that I discuss surgery with a cardiologist.  I decided to try the “natural” approach at that point which included vitamins, herbs, chiropractic and acupuncture…all to no avail.

Then I read Harold Bosworth’s account of his experience with BCAA + Gln and decided to give it a try.  I took a heaping teaspoonful twice a day and in 2-3 days the A-Fib disappeared.

Hint: Do NOT breathe in when taking the powder.  Just let it melt in your mouth for about 20-30 seconds and then drink it down with water.

Allow a couple/few weeks afterward for your pulse to “find” itself and then your strength/vigor will return. This was my experience, anyway.”
