Why is our heart rate variability important? How does it differ from the "out of control" racing heart of AFIB irregularities - atrial fibrillation?
The amount of variability that our heart beat has, moment to moment, is in fact a key indicator of our physical health, our emotional balance and overall wellbeing!
What is the problem when with a LOW HRV?

How is atrial fibrillation different from heart rate variability?
During atrial fibrillation, the heart's two upper chambers (the atria) are beating chaotically and irregularly.
The AFIB heart is in distress or "out of sync" -- out of coordination with the two lower chambers or ventricles.
Medically, the concern with atrial fibrillation is the risk of blood clots within the upper chambers of the heart. These blood clots could circulate and lead to blocked blood flow and cause a stroke.
Instead of a healthy, subtle variability in each beat of the heart, AFIB patients experience a heart that is "out of control, " and this can be frightening.
AFIB patients tend to suffer from psychological distress. They often find it difficult to cope with atrial fibrillation because of an emotional situation.

What about heart rate variability and nutrition?
Here's how the foods you eat are related to AFIB, or heart irregularities.
If your doctor wants you on meds to prevent blood clots - blood clots in lungs, a leg blood clot or a blood clot in the heart, please read on. Why?
Fortunately there are effective natural AFIB treatments. These can solve an irregular heart beat problem -- so that you can avoid the side effects of blood thinners.
Can the foods we eat really disrupt the rhythms of your heart to cause heart arrhythmia?
Yes. Researchers found that heart irregularities such as AFIB are related to these two factors:
AFIB, they say, is related to:
You may have to see this to believe it! This was a surprise finding by Japanese researchers!
"It's like a double whammy," explains Peter Light, a researcher at the Mazankowski Alberta Heart Institute, the lead author of a study on the causes of heart failure.
Although it has been known that “bad” trans fats (NOT animal or "saturated" fats) will clog arteries, it is only just coming to light that:
"These bad fats don't just clog your arteries, they are stored in your heart cells, and that can affect how the heart beats. This can really worsen the condition of a patient suffering a heart attack."
You may want to revise your diet BEFORE resorting to blood thinner medication against blood clots for the rest of your life!
This way your doctor may not have to put you on meds as treatment for irregular heart beat-- for the rest of your life!!!
Publishing his research in the European Molecular Biology Organization Journal, pharmacologist Peter Light has found a new, compelling reason to avoid harmful trans fats.
His research explains this new linking of heart variability and nutrition as follows:
In normal hearts, calcium is pumped in and out of the heart each second with each wave of electricity.
In particular, bad fats interfere with a protein called the sodium-calcium exchanger. "Its role is to pump calcium out," Dr. Light said. "But during a heart attack, it pumps calcium in."
This new linking of heart rhythm problems and fats, according to Dr. Light, will hopefully encourages the public to avoid foods rich in trans fats and hydrogenated oils:
• BAKED GOODS
• PROCESSED FOODS
Instead, it is recommended to use monounsaturated fats of olive oil, avocados and omega rich oils in fish and nuts that are BENEFICIAL for heart health.
So if you want a natural AFIB treatment and avoid taking medications, this new heart rhythm and nutrition connection should be good news!
Dr. Harry's formula can help if:
You are worried about a blood clot in the heart, a leg blood clot or blood clots in lungs.
If you would like help immediately, and NATURALLY, to avoid a stroke due to a blood clot...
Consider trying Dr. Harry's blood clot formula, which is SAFE to take with your medications.
Dr Harry's ENHANCED arginine formula can help improve AFIB, circulation, high blood pressure, high cholesterol and lower blood clot risk.

You may have to rub your eyes, because this may be hard to believe!
Japanese researchers found a link between LOW cholesterol levels and a heart rhythm disturbance known as atrial fibrillation, or AFIB.
The relevance of the Japanese research is:
Yes, you read that right!
Japanese researchers have found a relationship between LOW cholesterol and INCREASED risk of stroke.
Dr. Hisako Tsuki of Kansai Medical University, in Japan, studied more than 16,500 people for ten years. He measured their cholesterol levels and compared that with whether or not they got a stroke.
Ischaemic STROKES are caused by blockages in the arteries and:
People with the HIGHEST
cholesterol levels, had 71% fewer strokes due to blood clots as compared to those who had the LOWEST cholesterol.
For bleeding strokes (haemorrhagic strokes) the differences were even more amazing -- 96% LESS for people with the HIGHEST cholesterol levels as compared to those with the LOWEST levels!
Source: "Low serum cholesterol level and increased ischemic stroke mortality" published in the Archives of Internal Medicine, 2011 Jun 27.
Still worried about having high cholesterol? You may have to rub your eyes and review your medications!
Dr. Hisako Tsuki had split cholesterol levels into 4 groups:
Taking all forms of stroke together, risk of death in the HIGHEST cholesterol levels was 77% LOWER than in the LOWEST cholesterol levels.
But we know that cardiovascular disease includes heart disease too.
So perhaps increased cholesterol levels increased the risk of heart disease deaths, so that these "balanced out" deaths from a stroke?
It was actually LOWER, but it was NOT statistically significant.
Overall, in those with the highest cholesterol, risk of death was 58% lower than those in the lowest cholesterol group.
While the research on heart rhythm irregularities and nutrition of fats was done in a lab, at a molecular level, it has some potential practical implications.
For example, Dr. Light said, patients scheduled for heart surgery could be advised to cut out all trans fats for a few weeks before the operation as a way of reducing the risk of a poor outcome.
Dr. Light said this troubling effect on the sodium-calcium exchanger was not seen with mono unsaturated fats such as olive oil.
He said the research also has implications for the impact of trans fats on diabetes and hypertension, because similar mechanisms are at work.
IT TAKES SPECIAL EFFORT TO AVOID TRANS FATS:
Almost half of all CEREALS, both cold and hot, contain it, according to the Food and Drug Administration, the FDA.
So do 70 percent of cake mixes, 75 percent of CHIPS and other salty SNACKS, 80 percent of frozen breakfast foods like WAFFLES, and 95 percent of COOKIES.
During a recent informal survey of 140 varieties of CRACKERS on a typical supermarket shelf, only three brands had no partially HYDROGENATED oil.
Best to avoid packaged/processed foods now that you know how heart and nutrition are linked!
Find foods that truly make your heart sing! Your step may become lighter and you will automatically improve heart rate variability.
It's the bad boy in your bag of MICROWAVE POPCORN.
It lurks in those “low-fat COOKIES” and even in ENERGY BARS.
Heart rate variability improves with a happy heart and emotional resilience!
Want immediate protection against AFIB?
You may ASK US about:
Minerals play a big part in how to stop AFIB naturally!
Avoiding salt may not be the answer. Again, you may need to rub your eyes!
Heart irregularities and nutrition have been linked for a long time – we all know to lower our salt intake for heart problems, but there is more to it...
It is not so much the salt intake as the proper SODIUM/POTASSIUM ratio in the blood:
Electrolyte imbalances in the blood are caused by our typically eating too much sodium – salt, with NOT ENOUGH POTASSIUM to balance the electrolytes needed.
Good potassium sources are BANANAS, ORANGE JUICE, POTATOES, ALMONDS, AND WHOLE MILK.
And of course, magnesium is also a mineral crucial for heart function, so eat almonds, almonds, almonds!
Stop AFIB naturally with MINERALS:
You'll want to rule out mineral deficiencies such as magnesium!
Cardiovascular disease, high cholesterol, high blood pressure, migraines, and hyperactivity in children are often related to an imbalance of minerals, as well as an excess toxins in the body.
We hope that you have been inspired by our posting about how AFIB and what's normal heart rate variability are different! Also, how the heart and nutrition -- are linked.
(Arrhythmia, Heart Arrhythmia, Hyper- Contractions, and Abnormal Rhythms -- atrial fibrillation).
Hopefully you will remember research that connects cholesterol and trans fats to heart irregularities when you want your next donut!
You can SAFELY add out recommended natural heart supplements and foods to your blood clot treatment:
We hope that our site has helped you to be able to solve afib naturally.
Diet changes, SAFE natural heart supplements and heart rate variability training can all get you back on the FAST track!
