I have experienced 3 occurrences of atrial fibrillation, where my heart goes out of its normal sinus rhythm, and begins racing irregularly. On each occasion I have gone to the Emergency Department at our hospital and spent up to two days while I waited for the drugs to bring my heart back into normal rhythm.
My cardiologist subsequently said if it happened again I should take an extra tablet of my normal medication and then rest. If I had not reverted to normal sinus rhythm within 12 hours then I should go to hospital.
My heart went out of rhythm at 4:30am last week. The change in rhythm woke me up. My blood pressure had risen to 160/100 and my pulse was an irregular 120 beats per minute.
I took my medication and began to layer Aroma Life, Ylang Ylang, Stress Away & Valor over the heart area. I also used these oils on the Heart Vita Flex points and kept inhaling deeply the aroma of each oil as I applied it.
By 5:30am my body was feeling much less stressed, but the heart was still irregular but was now around 100 beats per minute. Then at 6:10am my heart dropped back into its correct sinus rhythm.
I am very grateful that the oils in conjunction with the medication were able to bring the episode under control without the need for a trip to hospital. It gives one a boost of confidence as one doesn't know when the episodes might occur.
