10 Nutritional Supplements for Atrial Fibrillation (AFib)



hey this is dr. Jack Wolfson board-certified cardiologist and I want to talk to you about ten supplements for atrial fibrillation if you are like thousands if not millions of Americans struggling with atrial fibrillation you know this is a major cause of concern for you I get it I've seen thousands of patients over the years and I know how atrial fibrillation the irregular heartbeat scares people number one they don't like the symptoms racing hard feelings palpitations skip beats number two they don't like the pharmaceuticals used to try and control those number three they don't like the idea of getting zapped or cardioverted or invasive procedure like an ablation and number four they certainly don't like the idea of being on long term blood thinners so let's try and reverse this here let's talk about how we can get rid of atrial fibrillation if you follow the paleo lifestyle you eat the right foods you get the sunshine you get the sleep you get the physical activity get away from the stress get away from the chemicals you do very well but now let's dive into the ten supplements that we can use that can be effective strategies to prevent and even reverse atrial fibrillation number one is the multivitamin multivitamin is the foundation of your supplements regimen it contains all the nutrients you need to get the job done as a foundation and then we talk about things like Omega 3 Omega 3 DHA Omega 3 fish oil is a fantastic way first definitely eat the free range of eat the wild fish sardine anchovy salmon but you go ahead and take your omega-3 oils along with it and of course you can get your omega-3 levels tested I'll talk about that as we go along number three is magnesium load up the body in magnesium magnesium helps the heart function help the electrical system of the heart get magnesium into your life number four potassium potassium is fantastic for the same reasons as magnesium helps the heart to relax we are deficient typically in potassium who want to make potassium a successful part of our strategy as well number five curcumin and other anti-inflammatories inflammation is highly linked to cardiovascular disease so we want to make sure we get anti-inflammatories into our diet and maybe the best out of all those is for cumin lots of evidence lots of science with curcumin which is one of the main beneficial compounds in the root vegetable turmeric and one of the Indian superfoods curry number six is berberine berberine is tremendously anti-inflammatory as well berberine is one of these like super remedies that does so many different things up your game on berberine and I understand there's evidence on this for a true fibrillation as well number seven is taurine taurine is an amino acid like molecule that helps detoxify the liver that's for sure and it also helps to stabilize heart rhythm that's in the literature number eight is Co Q 10 a coq10 is part of the energy cycle in the mitochondria so if we have good Co Q 10 good heart energy good heart function lower risk of atrial fibrillation in the literature number nine other antioxidants vitamins A C and E in the literature those work for a variety of reasons love me some vitamin A especially when it comes not as beta carotene but as retinol palmitate and retinol ik acid things like that that's what you want to look for in a quality supplement and then finally alpha lipoic acid alpha lipoic acid is another one of these super star antioxidants that you need for your health and once again all of these things are in the literature to benefit you for each real fibrillation now one thing you may want to do is you may want to get tested beforehand so the three tests I typically recommend vibrant micronutrient vibrant America and vibrance wheat zoomer and two of those three tests are on our website I'm going to put all this into the No as for as far as what tests to order where you can order them from because it's great once again to get all that information it's one thing to take all these supplements but how do you know what's gonna work for you sure you can try the supplements I don't see any downside to that but you may want to get tested and see what your levels are first it's up to you maybe if you're not successful on the supplements then try and dial it in with the test and you could go either way on that I've seen so many people come onto Arizona so many people are concerned about atrial fibrillation we get emails we get requests all the time for this information so I'll try and keep getting that FM stuff out there also at the bottom of this post I'm gonna put the supplements protocol along with the links of where to get them on the doctors Wolfson site to give it a try and see what works for you there's other great

  4. Great info! I use most you recommend. Love your integrative approach; no need to use a sledgehammer when a tack hammer will do. Thanks! Doctor.

  5. Dr. Wolfson do you think colloidal silver could help with an atrial fibrillation?

  6. WHICH MAGNESIUM?? There are so many. Malate, Citrate, Oxide, Glycinate, Taurates, Sulfate, Chloride… the page on your website wouldn't open.

  7. Natural Holistic board certified = quack !

  8. what about Hawthorne and cayenne pepper! Great for the ♥

  9. Bla bla bla !

  10. Are supplements like Magnesium, Co Q10, and Potassium safe, while taking Eiquis?   I have a TTE Cardioversion scheduled in 2 weeks.  Ugh.

  11. I have just started on Eliquis and Metopolol today.  First real allopathic drugs!!   I hate this.  What about these supplements and the drugs.  I don't know of any doctor that can work to integrate and go off this.

  12. What about those with a high chads-vasc score? Are you saying they can come off their noac if they take supplements?

  13. I was putting spinach in my smoothie every day, I started feeling bad

  14. Have you seen any information about acacetin? (https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/18458165) I've been using Dr. Stephen Sinatra's protocal and it has helped me a good bit. One thing he mentions that you didn't is d-Ribose for heart rate control. I was put on Metropolol along with rat poison and the Metropolol made things worse. It began with being prescribed Hydrochlorothiazide. As you know, one of the major side effects is tachycardia, which is what happened within 2 weeks. I went to the ER and was let go. Within 2 weeks again another bout of tachycardia and that is when I was put on Metropolol. All this did was to give me bouts of arrhythmia every few weeks. I was not taken off Hydrochlorothiazide in all of this. I was kept on Hydrochlorothiazide for around 5 years until it was changed to Amlodopine. By the way, all of this was done through the incompetence and apathy of the VA. I should have been taken off of Hydrochlorothiazide immediately but the so-called ER "doctors" at the VA didn't have enough common sense to look at the side effects of the drug I was prescribed. Finally, I found Dr. Sinatra's protocol and I got myself off of Metropolol and on the d-Ribose and that calmed down the arrhythmia. Unfortunately, it didn't remove it. I've come to the conclusion that the only thing that will do that is an Atriclip and amputation of the LAA. The Afib I have is paroxysmal Afib. It occurs usually around every 4 to 6 weeks and lasts for at least a day. I think one of the problems that keeps the arrhythmia happening is that every blood pressure drug has as one of its main side effects arrhythmia. That, to me doesn't make much sense. I've lost a bunch of weight and my BP dropped around 30 points. So, sooner or later I'll be able to get off of even that. Here's some information for you. You probably saw some of this.

  15. So Jack Wolfson is a "Dr." but not an MD? A "natural holistic board certified cardiologist?" Just what is that? Is he practicing medicine? Confusing.

  16. One should, under no circumstances, take alpha lipoic acid if they have mercury/silver amalgam dental fillings, which are 50% mercury and 33% silver. ALA can cross the blood-brain barrier and is also a potent mercury chelator. Therefore, it can pull mercury out of your dental fillings and put it elsewhere in your system, including the brain.

  17. if you have atrial fibrillation

  18. is it alright to take protein supplements and creatine supplements?

  19. Where am I supposed to find all those vitamins, let alone pay for them?

  20. Eliquis

  21. what kind of magnesium

  22. Curcumin while on blood thinners is bad advice

  23. Please do video about WPW regarding ablation, chiropractor adjustments, and supplements.

  24. So can I buy something to get all of this in one

  25. It's insane how many supplements we need to take every day on top of eating healthy.. it's like a full-time job trying to keep up with all of this stuff

  26. Thank you for sharing this information. I have Afib, i would like to go as natural as possible. I am unable to come to Arizona for an assessment. Thanks again.
