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.”

"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."

Want to Support Others with A-Fib? Become a Volunteer!

Atrial Fibrillation changes your life. There’s the emotional impact after being diagnosed. Then you have important decisions to make about your treatment and how to adjust to life with your A-Fib symptoms.

It helps to have someone who has “been there” and is there for them now. Having someone to turn to for advice, emotional support, and a sense of hope that one can be cured gives peace of mind.

We are blessed to have many generous people who have volunteered to help others get through their A-Fib ordeal.

Most A-Fib Support Volunteers are not medical personnel  They are not paid. They come from widely different backgrounds and live around the globe.

About Our Volunteers

These volunteers have gone through a lot while seeking their A-Fib cure. They have been helped along the way and want to return the favor. They offer other patients support and hope through exchanging emails, “listening” and sharing their stories. (Not all Support Volunteers are ‘cured’ of their A-Fib, but have found the best outcome for themselves.)
