Atrial Fibrillation: Remineralize Your Heart is an eBook authored by Dr. Carolyn Dean, a medical doctor and experienced naturopath. You can read about the symptoms and causes of atrial fibrillation in the PDF attachment to this post.

In her book, Dr. Carolyn Dean draws on her own experiences of the condition as well as her medical and homeopathic backgrounds to discuss effective treatments for the condition, with a foundation in natural remedies involving magnesium and other essential minerals. Dr. Dean has written thousands of books, articles, blog posts and other media, all with a focus on helping people gain optimum health by making positive changes to their diet and lifestyle.

Atrial Fibrillation explores a variety of ways to help prevent the condition and manage symptoms, as well as introducing Dr. Dean’s patented Total Body ReSet formulas that have been specifically designed to promote overall health through supplying optimally absorbed magnesium and other mineral supplements.

The Medical Approach

The medical community currently has no drug-based cure for atrial fibrillation, offering only medicines or surgeries that are designed to alleviate some of the symptoms. Medications such as warfarin often prescribed for atrial fibrillation are anticoagulants that help to maintain sinus rhythm and minimize symptoms.

However, these carry a relatively high risk of error and cannot be offered to all patients where there may be comorbidities or contraindications. Oral anticoagulants are also sometimes used in conjunction with concomitant aspirin, carrying risks of bleeding events.

Antiarrhythmic drugs such as quinidine or sotalol may be prescribed off-label; although these have high levels of clinical efficacy, they are also proarrhythmic and therefore require caution.

Some statistics for occurrences of atrial fibrillation can be viewed in the embedded PDF.

Researching Atrial Fibrillation

Dr. Carolyn Dean argues that one of the best natural treatments she has found for atrial fibrillation is based on magnesium. Using evidence based on both her own experiences with the condition and testimonials from countless others either currently dealing with or recovered from atrial fibrillation, Dr. Dean has been able to develop a recommended treatment plan that she outlines in her eBook.

Her research resulted in her being recognized with a prestigious award at the 2012 Heart Rhythm Congress for her outstanding contribution to the field.

Magnesium for Atrial Fibrillation

Magnesium is known to be beneficial to a healthy human heart in many ways, not only in treating atrial fibrillation. Magnesium is a vital element in the transportation throughout the body of electrolytes such as calcium and potassium, transporting them into cells and maintaining a healthy heart rhythm. Research has shown that many cases of arrhythmia are caused by inadequate intake of magnesium, with those patients with higher levels of magnesium showing far lower tendencies to suffer from the condition. This was indicated in a 2013 study known as the Framingham heart study, where low blood levels of magnesium were identified as being associated with atrial fibrillation. [5]

Magnesium for General Heart Health

Various studies have shown that inadequate magnesium levels can be linked to several different heart conditions and conditions of the blood. These include hypertension, with patients who take magnesium supplements seeing a lowering of their blood pressure.

Magnesium has also been linked to the prevention of heart disease, with those studied who have the lowest rates of magnesium being at a higher risk of contracting this condition. Magnesium can also help control blood sugar levels in people with type 2 diabetes, as well as other heart-related conditions.
