6 Natural Ways to Prevent or Reverse Atrial Fibrillation | Dr. Jack Wolfson

Hey, this is Dr. Jack Wolfson, The Paleo Cardiologist
of The Drs. Wolfson and today I want to talk
to you about natural ways to treat atrial
fibrillation.
Now, first of, atrial fibrillation is a cardiology
diagnoses.
It’s a heart diagnosis.
It’s an irregular heart rhythm where the hear
fibrillates or the top part of the heart,
the atrial, just kinda quivers and shakes.
And with atrial fibrillation it gets more
common as we get older.
Clearly there are reasons for it and those
reasons are the same as pretty much what causes
all disease and that’s poor nutrition.
And environmental pollutants, and a lack of
sunshine, and a lack of sleep.
It’s a lack of living the healthy lifestyle.
Now, the problem with atrial fibrillation
is that a couple things, number one, it can
cause symptoms such as shortness of breathe.
It can cause light headiness or dizziness.
It is a serious medical diagnosis.
The other thing is, in some people, they have
a higher risk of stroke with atrial fibrillation.
So make sure to talk to your doctor, about
anything that I’m discussing in this video,
to decide if it’s the right plan for you.
But, the reality of the is, is that atrial
fibrillation in the medical world, they treat
it with dangerous pharmaceuticals.
Some of which you have to be hospitalized
before you can safely be on those and you
have to be hospitalized because they have
to monitor you to make sure you don’t die
from the drug.
Now, there’s other drugs that they use, that
are more common, that they can use on an outpatient
basis, but those are not very successful.
There’s a procedure that they do called a
cardioversion where they zap your heart back
to a normal rhythym.
And that is not very successful either.
And then ultimately they’ll go towards a procedure
called an ablation.
Where they burn the tissue in the top part
of the heart and that is successful fifty
percent of the time, according to the medical
literature.
And that’s with the best doctors in the world
that are doing that procedure.
So let’s talk about how we can prevent and
actually get rid of a lot of cases of atrial
fibrillation by giving the body what it needs.
First of I wanna talk to you, Paleo nutrition.
Eating the foods that our ancestors consumed,
loaded with omega 3s, loaded with vitamins
and minerals, organic, responsible, Paleo
foods.
Number two?
Get Sunshine!
The sun gives us the energy.
It fuels the body.
It fuels the ATP, and when you have good energy
coming in from the sun, you charge up those
mitochondria.
You make all the energy in the cell and you
do some incredible things.
And the body just works normally…
I’ve seen this in my patients.
You crank up levels of vitamin D, and with
high levels of vitamin D, you reduce the risk
of atrial fibrillation.
Number three, get your sleep.
When you’re not sleeping, all bad things happen.
Our ancestors went to sleep with the sundown
and they woke with the sun rise.
So get your sleep.
Sleep, sleep your way to resolving atrial
fibrillation.
Number four, get adjusted.
See your chiropractor.
Your chiropractor restores neurologic balance
to the body.
The balance of autonomic nervous system where
the parasympathetics and sympathetics.
The doctor of chiropractic is uniquely skilled
in removing what is called vertebral subluxation
by using the spine to adjust the nervous system.
Chiropractic, we get tremendous results when
I work in conjunction with a chiropractic.
And then also getting away from chemicals.
We know the environmental pollutants and environmental
toxins and air pollution and heavy metal toxicity.
All those things are linked to atrial fibrillation
so get that out.
And then lastly, but not least, number 6.
Use evidence based supplements.
Omega three supplementation, magnesium, potassium,
taurine … there’s a lot of different things
that I use, very successfully, in my practice
to help with atrial fibrillation prevention
and reversal.
We don’t need to go down the dangerous medical
route.
Work with a holistic doctor.
