    Hi Diana,

    I have been reading good things about Hawthorn as a natural herb that may possibly assist with AF.

    Good luck!

    The only thing(s) that worked for me - and I no longer have afib - is to focus on food intolerances, food/drink trigges and the gut. Everyone is diffrent so you'll have to make your self a unique project as you figure things out for yourself.

      Hi Frank and Diana. I have just had a hair root analysis which pinpointed my food intolerances and deficiences in the body. I seem to be having less af since avoiding those foods one of which is wheat.

      Yeah - wheat is on my list, but in moderation. Even though I am in the USA, my genetic roots are from long ago in the Northern European areas and, from what I have read, people from the furthest away from our African origins have the greatest wheat-related intolerances.

      That said, it is extra difficult to nail down the exact list because sometimes it is a mix of different things in combination that will cause af problems.  For me, wheat is borderline but when I eat sausage with it, all hell breaks out, whereas alone wheat is tolerable to a degree and I never had a problem with sausage when eaten without wheat.

      That is why I said earlier that one has to figure it out for themselves; you'll never get a healthcare professional to go through that laborious process.

      That is where the hair root analysis has been great as there were things on there l would never have worked out for myself like sunflower oil. I had tests with an allergist about 4 years ago before l got af and he couldn't pin point anything. My symptom was itching.
