The following is a testimonial from a client of mine who wants to support other people who take magnesium and then decide to wean off their medications for AFib.
Here are his words:
“I am a 57-year old man who was diagnosed with Atrial Fibrillation 4 months ago. My symptoms included an irregular heartbeat, shortness of breath, anxiety, and lack of strength. I was unable to walk up a short flight of stairs without my symptoms kicking in. Up to this point I had been a very healthy person doing regular workouts and eating extremely healthy.
The next month consisted of a cardioversion and numerous visits with doctors and electrophysiologists. I was put on 3 different prescription drugs and told I would need a catheter ablation. During this time, my condition did not improve. I kept reading and researching AFib and noticed that while my doctors could never give me a reason for my AFib, Dr. Dean said it was due to a lack of magnesium. I contacted her and she recommended ReMag (1 tsp 2-3 times a day) and ReMyte (1/2 tsp three times a day) and she told me to start slowly on them at ½ tsp a day and work up by ½ tsp every 3 days.
She also had me take a Magnesium RBC blood test, which confirmed that my magnesium was low. I started to feel more energized after taking the ReMag and ReMyte. I was seeing improvement, but my pulse was still irregular and anytime I did something physical, my AFib symptoms came back. But I was still taking three prescription drugs.
During this time, I continued to watch videos and read articles by Dr. Dean and learned that some drugs can block magnesium from working in the body. My Magnesium RBC blood levels were improving but not to the optimum of 6.0mg/dL. It was at that time I decided on my own to stop taking my prescription drugs. I knew the magnesium was making me better but the drugs were keeping it from being totally effective. I asked Dr. Dean how to wean off my prescription drugs. She wanted me to work with my doctor and said to wean off one drug at a time by cutting the pills in half and then in quarters and reducing the dosage every 3-4 days.
The rest of the story is that I noticed great improvement after getting off the prescription drugs. It was the breakthrough I had been hoping for. My pulse has been steady. My energy is great. All my symptoms disappeared. I am back to doing physical activities; walking on the treadmill, jumping rope, and shoveling snow! Getting off the prescription drugs, I feel, allowed my magnesium to work. My followed up RBC test shows that my magnesium level is at optimum levels where it should be. I feel better and better each day!
After numerous doctors told me I needed long-term prescription drugs and catheter ablations, it was Dr. Dean who guided me back to health. I cannot express in words how thankful I am for all that Dr. Dean has done for me. Thank-you, Dr. Dean for giving me back my life that allows me to do all the things I desire and enjoy!”
