Atrial fibrillation, or AFIB, is a heart condition that affects millions of people. Having this problem leads to a lot of stress and anxiety regarding the associated stroke risk and the abundance of pharmaceuticals and other medical/surgical options to deal with it.
I am going to help you understand what is AFIB and I am going to tell you WHY you have atrial fibrillation (and what to do about it).
The heart generates an electrical impulse from the top to the bottom. This impulse leads to a contraction or “squeezing” of the heart muscle to propel blood to the rest of the body. Heartbeat after heartbeat, the contraction occurs in a regular sequence. Boom/Boom/Boom/Boom/Boom.
With atrial fibrillation, the heart beat is IRREGULAR. Boom/ Boom/Boom/ Boom/Boom/Boom Boom/Boom/ Boom.
Another way to explain the irregularity of AFIB is a dripping faucet. It goes drip drip drip in a regular pattern. Now imagine the flow from the faucet if you were constantly turning the nob between almost off and full blast.
Hopefully that example makes sense.
Here is a list of traditional risk factors for atrial fibrillation you will hear from you doctor:
Unhealthy lifestyle and poor nutrition.
Let’s break down the above generality and talk about the real cause(s) of AFIB.
Inflammation, as measured in blood work, is a MAJOR risk factor for atrial fibrillation. This fact is accepted by cardiologists. But the CAUSE of the inflammation are the factors above.
So, to prevent atrial fibrillation, live the healthiest lifestyle possible. Do the opposite of the items above. Read more of my blog posts and change your life today.
