Atrial fibrillation and writer's cramp
Posted by: Chris

Any suggestions on stopping atrial fibrillation due to metal toxification and liver congestion? Also, I've developed writer's cramp and I feel there's some sort of physical blockage in my elbow or shoulder. I think this because when I do certain bridging yoga positions the symptoms go away for maybe a couple of hours. Is there any type of physical therapy which might help? (Writers cramp and NOT carpal tunnel syndrome.)

Of course you want to remove the sources of metals (dental fillings, fish consumption, industrial exposure), then chelate out the remaining body burden. I have had good success in slowing down some cases of AF with 18% magnesium chloride acetate from Cardiovascular Research. Your doc should be able to order it on-line. As to writer's cramp, make sure to give your hand muscles some strengthening exercises. When I go to the gym I do flexion and extension exercises with my wrist and finger muscles using weights. Also, circulation to the hand is important. That may be more difficult to address. Chelation with EDTA improves circulation. And of course, the more you write the more fit your hand will be to withstand writing. I remember as a grade school student I could write forever. Now I hit the keys instead and my hand gets tired when I write long-hand from simply being out of shape.
