Reduce Arrhythmia Safely

Monday, 29 October 2012 08:11 AM

Question: In 2008, my wife had a stroke caused by atrial fibrillation. She has been taking amiodarone and it is beginning to affect her lungs. Is there anything to counteract this drug?

Dr. Blaylock's Answer:

The drug amiodarone has a number of very serious complications, including severe lung damage and liver injury. It is known that this drug increases free radical production, which may explain why it damages organs and can even increase arrhythmias.
A number of less toxic ways to reduce arrhythmia are available. For example, magnesium taken in a dose of 500 mg twice a day reduces atrial fibrillation and slightly thins the blood to prevent embolisms (blood clots).
Other proven natural substances include carnosine, luteolin, hesperidin, silymarin, resveratrol, omega-3 oils, and vitamin E (mixed tocopherols). It is also critical to avoid excess caffeine and excitotoxic food additives such as MSG.
