Update

Hi Corrij, I appear to have a slight deteriation in my condition. I have admittedly slackened off on my supplements. I am shorter of breath now days and battling asthma more than I ever had to before, due to some plant growing near here. I get tired again and find some days a bit tough. I have not h...

Question

:D Hi all, I am sailing along fairly stable, (touch wood) at the moment. I have started on Ubiquinol since reading Corrij's link about it, and I feel OK. I had a question for all, does anyone find that since starting their prescription medications, their memory is not as good as it used to be? I was...

Hi Corrij, Thanks for the information. I love these articles you post. they are so useful and relate straight our issues, without having to wade through lines of text. My blood pressure was always good. It dropped when I came off Cordarone and the AF came back. My doctor proposes to use my implanted...

Update

Well, I had a visit with my Cardioligist on Friday. (Last one was September 2007). He agrees, that my shortness of breath is purely due to the AF, however this time around, my ICD had detected some AT as well, which is new for me. He wants to fly me to Darwin in 6 weeks, and cardiovert me there to t...

Hi Marion, The shortness of breath was before I stopped my supplements, so what I did was stop the supplements, to basically start the protocol again. As I had times when I first commenced when I felt really good. So this was my grand plan, 1) Stop the supplements and note the change if any. Result=...

Hi Marion, Wow nothing is ever simple is it! :-? Bi-ventricular hey, that is very flash. I was considered for one, but they decided that I didn't need it so I am happy about that and have the Dual chamber, (Top and bottom) :lol: I have not had mine put under the muscle fully, but every time I have h...

Hi Verona, My holidays were very happy thank you. I hope your festive season was good and that 2008 is kind to you and Shane. I am not feeling as well as I was, I am quite short of breath, but I don't seem to have any significant change in fluid retention. Therefore, I think it is just my atrial fib...

Hi Verona, Yep, I am on Coumadin/Warfarin for ever and a day, unless I can control the arrythmias. It is only because of the Atrial Fibrillation that I have to take it. Corrij and Willy have been helping me for a few months now. I am following their protocol, a bit haphazardly at times, but generall...

AArrrrrrgghhh. I just typed all this, then work lost my connection and now I have to retype it! :x :D INR = International Normalised Ratio. Basically, it means that my INR is 2.0 and that means it takes 2x as long to clot as a normal person. My doctor likes to keep me between 2.0 -3.0. I take CoQ10 ...

Hi Verona, For interests sake, I had read about this prior to starting CoQ10. What I did was commence the CoQ10 1 week before an INR test. That went well, so I stopped the CoQ10 then started 2 weeks before my next INR, and have continued to take it ever since. I take 120mg twice a day. My INR was al...

Hi Corrij, Hows things? I am going along very nicely thank you. I take my supplements as reccommended, though I had to adjust them as I didn't realise that Carnitine & Taurine don't work well together, till I read one of the other posts. I feel really good, as far as heart performance goes. In fact ...

Hi Corrij,
I take 1000mg of Magnesium every morning.

Thanks for that.
