My friend Erin just started with ItWorks. I'm not into selling this stuff, but I've SEEN a lot of friends with results. I just signed on as a Loyal Customer and am ordering the greens to start. Discounts are huge for loyal customers, and the $50 fee is waived if you commit to staying on autoship (you can change the product monthly of you need) for 3 months. It's a sweet deal. Check it out!

This makes a lot of sense. F had what we thought was an a-fib episode last weekend. In the hospital, they took him off of his potassium supplement and gave him magnesium, stating his magnesium was low. They did not bother to mention this relationship, though. Definitely something we'll ask the doc about in a couple of weeks.
Many atrial fibrillation episodes are caused by lack of Magnesium

(The following are news items and opinions. This is not medical advice.)

Magnesium deficiency is epidemic. The heart has the highest amount of magnesium in the body. If the heart muscles are lacking in magnesium, they can go into spasm causing pain or heart rhythm disturbances. 

You may not even feel any symptoms but on a routine physical with an EKG your doctor may say - Oh, you have atrial fibrillation. 

In the medical world of HMO's, medicine is thought to be so complex that someone had the bright idea to create guidelines to treat symptoms and diseases. Thus, when you have an inkling of a heart attack, you will come away from your hospital internment with no less than six medications. 

It doesn't matter if you had a mild or severe attack and even if you don't have high cholesterol, high blood sugar or high blood pressure you will be put on all the medicines to supposedly prevent those conditions from happening. 

The trouble is - you lose magnesium with those medications and magnesium deficiency contributes to heart disease, diabetes, high cholesterol and high blood pressure.

 Similarly with the diagnosis of a rhythm disturbance, the recipe is to take an anti-arrhythmia drug and a blood thinner and prepare for a cardioversion to get you back to normal rhythm. 

Talk to your MD or naturopathic doctor about a regimen of magnesium for your atrial fibrillation.
