  • Ectopic heart beats linked to indigestion.

    I am a 63 year old woman with what has now become a chronic ectopic heart problem. Like other members, I have a lot of wind and the ectopia is always eased by bringing up a good burp. Baking soda in water has the best effect.  I would like to concentrate on diet changes to minimise the problem....

  • Ablation worth it?

    I don't tolerate meds well. I don't read about side effects until after I experience them. Anyway. If you had it how was recovery? Did you stay calm during the procedure? Did it correct your issues? Thank you for sharing.
