Treating arrhythmia the standard way (drugs + operations) can be pretty expensive. Of course, in some cases this is the only cure, but in other cases arrhythmia can be cured and can ONLY be cured by following a certain diet. But you have go through some tests first to see if your arrhythmia is caused by a physical flaw in your heart or from other factors (stress, bad nutrition, etc.).
How do I know it works? I'm a living example! None of three different pills doctors prescribed me had any effect, but the change of diet did. Read my whole story (along with complete medical documentation) here:
