A F ! oh no !!! oh yes !!!

by Jamie Brown
(Liverpool UK)

I have Atrial Fibrillation , and was diagnosed about 8 years ago, I can't seem to tell when I am in AF which suggests that I well may be in AF all the time !! oh no !! :-) I have been taking Magnesium Sulphate baths, maybe twice a week- a regular bath size and adding about a kilo of Magnesium Sulphate which is pharmaceutical grade.

I soak for about 40 min is Magnesium Sulphate appropriate to take with an aim of eliminating AF? Also how much can and should I be consuming orally in addition to my baths?

Thank you Jamie Liverpool UK

It may not be appropriate for you..

Hi Jamie,

If you are currently in Atrial Fibrillation, it may not be appropriate for you to try to 'get out' of that rhythm.

It's EXTREMELY important that you speak to your cardiologist before attempting anything like that because there is the rare, but very real possibility that if you got out of atrial fibrillation that you could 'throw a clot'.

When the atria are in fibrillation, instead of pushing the blood out of the atria with every beat, it tends to keep a small amount in the chamber and not get rid of it very easily.

That blood hangs around longer than it should and can form a clot. That's why they put people on anticoagulant medications to try to keep clots from forming.

So, if you are not anticoagulated and you have a small clot in the chamber, if you change your rhythm back to normal, you can 'throw the clot' out into your circulatory system which can cause a LOT of problems.

While I don't mean to frighten you or anything, aggressively trying to get yourself out of Atrial Fibrillation should be discussed with your cardiologist first and you should be in good communication with him during the process.

If you get the OK to do this from your doctor, then I'd be happy to help you out more.
