Steve's A-Fib Survival Kit for the Newly Diagnosed - NEW!
A quick buy or gift when first diagnosed with Atrial Fibrillation. Just the basics: Magnesium and Potassium supplements, a DIY heart beat monitor, an oximeter, my favorite medical dictionary and, of course, my book, 'Beat Your A-Fib'.

Magnesium & Potassium Supplements for A-Fib Patients
Most A-Fib patients are deficient in Magnesium (Mg) and Potassium (K). The plethora of products, brands and doses can be daunting. Here' a list of products and brands Steve uses and recommends. For dosage and other information see our A-Fib.com page: Treatments/Mineral Deficiencies.
‘Natural’ Supplements for a Healthy Heart
As discussed in his A-Fib.com article, ‘Natural’ Supplements for a Healthy Heart', Steve recommends seven mineral supplements to promote and maintain a healthy heart. Wading through the sea of products and brands can be a daunting task. So, to get you started making your selections, Steve has a couple choices for each mineral supplement. For dosage and other information see Steve's article on A-Fib.com under Treatments/Mineral Deficiencies/Additional Reading: ‘Natural’ Supplements for a Healthy Heart'.
DIY Heart Rate Monitors (HRMs)
A-Fib patients sometimes want to monitor their heart rate when exercising or when performing physically demanding activities (i.e. mowing the lawn, climbing stairs, loading and unloading equipment, etc.). A consumer 'DIY" monitor may meet this need. If you are considering purchasing an HRM, Steve has sorted through the plethora of products and bands and recommends several products in a range of prices and features. See Steve's A-Fib.com article: Consumer DIY Heart Rate Monitors.
Many A-Fib resources are out-of-date, incomplete or biased toward a specific pharmaceutical or treatment. New studies are often written by and for doctors and researchers. So, it takes some effort to find up-to-date and unbiased resources written for the non-medical reader. This is a list of Steve's favorite books and guides for A-Fib patients and their families.
