Customer Question
About two years ago i...
About two years ago i suffered from Atrial Fibrillation. I identified as EMF being the cause. I removed the cause, thus effecting a cure.
This morning, after physical action which was,no doubt, excessive - for this very fit 93 year old man - i felt weak and identified a recurrence of AF with a very jumbled pulse to which I put a stop to by imbibing Cayenne Pepper extract in a tumbler of water.
Now, few hours later, I find that my FA has returned with a skipped beat in every 4/5/6/10.
What action should I take?
I should note that I started a conversation with your Dr Chip, which he has apparently terminated without a final response to my last message

I would honestly go to ER right now

If you have a new onset a fib that won't go away you need to be seen

is this helpful?

Customer reply replied 11 months ago
No, Because the response to AF here appears to be : can't cure, just take metropolol to ensure that your blood is thin and you won't get clots and stroke.

that is the treatment
