According to the stud below, cardiac ablation (CA) and afib drugs both carry real risks of serious adverse events. According to the study linked below the level of risks differ but no one disputes that thousands of patients who undergo either of CA or drug therapy will experience serious adverse events. Why would anyone want to risk “serious adverse events” if they didn’t have to?
I developed chronic afib in the fall of 2010. I don’t like the feeling of being short of breath or living with an increased risk of stroke.
But I do know what it’s like to suffer from short, long-term and late stage side effects from conventional (FDA approved) therapies. I have lived with a variety of treatment-related adverse events for years.
I maintain a healthy weight, cholesterol, and blood pressure through nutrition, frequent, moderate exercise and other lifestyle therapies. Sauna is a great way to reduce my blood pressure, detoxify and relax. But that’s another blog post.
Did you know that there are numerous nutritional supplements that are known to reduce the risk of stroke?
My primary goal is writing this blog post is to offer afib patients a third option to the study below. And that third option is to get serious about your health. Let me be clear. You must work closely with your cardiologist and take your health seriously. But living a long life with chronic afib can be done. And reducing your risk of stroke through evidence-based, non-toxic, non-conventional therapies can be done.
