  • From Jeane on Lab Testing to Help Discover the SVT-GUT Connection

    I recently took the 23 and me testing and found the only genetic marker for any disease they test for that I carry is one for celiac disease. I’ve had SVT for many years and have purchased your guides and found them very helpful. I rarely experience symptoms and I carry medication in my purse if needed but had noticed my episodes were linked to food choices or excessive stress so I was quite intrigued to see that genetic marker on my 23 and me test.

    Very useful information! Could you repost on the Facebook page as I believe most folks check it before visiting one’s website.

    So happy you are doing a gluten – gluten kitchen publication!

  • From Samantha White on Food Sensitivity Testing for SVT

    Good information but I’m pretty tired of being told about all the tests I simply must have to help manage my SVT episodes. If I could afford all the testing, I would certainly do it. There’s never any mention of how expensive all this testing is or any seeming awareness of how a regular person, working paycheck to paycheck is supposed to pay for it all.

    • From laura on Food Sensitivity Testing for SVT

      Hi Samantha! Glad you found the information helpful! Thank you for your comment. First let me just say that I hear your frustration. It’s very unfortunate that many of the alternative testing that really can help people to heal at root cause levels such as identifying undiagnosed food sensitivities, genetic testing for gluten intolerance unfortunately are not covered by insurance. Further, most traditional western doctors are not prescribing these types of tests that are actually useful and directive. Im a great example of that. All of the tests I got for years were 100% normal yet I was so sick with SVT and POTS I could barely function. My entire Neal SVT Naturally approach is based on that traditional Western Cardiology did not direct me at all to any of the things that made the real changes in my life, which is why I am providing this information for others in case they are interested. I am not associated with these labs or avenues of testing, just providing the information as what worked for me.

      Additionally, none of the healing practitioners that I worked with like Health Coaches, Energy healers, acupuncturists, etc. accepted insurance because again that’s just how our medical system in the United States works. So yes you do have to pay for most alternative healing protocols out of pocket however, that being said you don’t have to do any of these tests if you don’t want to. And if you dont want to pay for any tests, then you can just make assumptions according to popular allergens, or food tracking, based on your own findsing. You just wont be getting personalized information but nonetheless you can just remove gluten, sugar and dairy to see if that makes the difference for you. So for example if you are strict gluten and sugar free and still having episodes, you would need to take your gut healing protocol to a deeper level, and that would be difficult without personalized testing and direction.

      For me, I was not really initially that committed to my gluten-free diet and I was still having (SVT) and when I did finally decide to bite the bullet and pay for the test and I found out in black-and-white evidence that I was gluten intolerant and it really really really helped me to finally commit to the dietary changes that change my life, and rid me of SVT and many other SVT co-symptoms.

      Good Luck and let me know if you have any other questions. Also stay tuned for the next blog post with more info on the labs, and other info.

    Thank you for giving me the definitive view of my SVT episodes.

    Could you send me a hard copy with payment being made in advance?
    If ok send details and I will arrange it.
    Thanks in advance

    • From laura on Heal SVT Naturally Success Stories

      HI Peter, I can email you the PDF of the guide. I use paypal to process the payments and accept all major credit cads or paypal. In the meantime, start tracking your food and your episodes to try to draw common denominators. They are usually caffenine, white sugar, gluten, carb heavy meals, overeating in one sitting, eating late, eating sugar for breakfast. Try to eat more fruits and veggies and naturally gluten free whole grains like qunioa or brown rice pasta. The SVT Prevention Diet eguide will help you alot. All the best, Laura

  • From Isaac on The SVT Prevention Diet E-book

    Hey Laura! I am wondering if the guide provides specific recipes? Or just general dietary guidelines? and about how many recipes you think? I was recently diagnosed with Atrial Tachycardia and am in need of real practical steps like recipes. I am currently reading and really enjoying your “BASICS” e-guide.
    Thanks for what you are doing!

    • From laura on The SVT Prevention Diet E-book

      HI Yes The SVT Prevention Guide has recipes, It is very comprehensive and includes a whole section on the SVT-GUT connection along with recipes and a specific way of food combining. It explains exactly what to AVOID to prevent SVT. Hope it helps you!

  • From Natalie on New Research that Connects POTS to Gluten Consumption Has Implications for SVT

    I am a carb lover and totally afraid of going gluten free. What are the main things you should avoid? How can a carb lover go gluten free? Any advice?

    2018/11/16 at 2:18 am
    • From laura on New Research that Connects POTS to Gluten Consumption Has Implications for SVT

      HI Natalie, This is such a great question. First, if you love gluten and never can seem to get enough, that is a sign that you may be experiencing a food sensitivity to it. My whole theory is built around undiagnosed food allergies and their impact on your propensity for SVT. We crave endlessly things we are actually sensitive or allergic to like…gluten sugar and dairy. One way to approach things is to use a method that I explain in detail in my new e-book The SVT Prevention Diet: The SVT-GUT Connection and the Power of Food to Control SVT and Transform Your Health, called crowding it out. The first thing to do is allow yourself to have any carbs you want as long as they are naturally gluten free and filled with vitamins. Such as, brown rice organic pasta, quinoa, organic brown rice, millet, etc. In baked goods you can have almond flour, brown rice flour, GF flour, GF rolled Oats, etc. For carb like veggies try sweet ones like yams, sweet potatoes,squash, and even bean pastas like chick pea pastas and beans in general are OK too. Then flavor those things with the same flavors you love on your regular carbs. Also swap out the white sugar slowly with dark cacao chocholate like HU Brand with almond butter, and honey is OK too. REally investigate your diet and go slow. I highly recommend my guide, I was a carb lover, lived on pasta and cookies and also was an emotional eater;) Let me know how it goes. Laura

    Laura,
    You are an angel worker. I am on a good gluten free diet thanks to you, and I have lost 12 pounds on top of it since I found you. No SVT for one month now, and it used to be a weekly occurance.
    Love and light,
    Melissa

    • From laura on The SVT Prevention Diet E-book

      Dear Melissa,

      Wow and yeah! You have no idea how pleased I am to hear that. Congratulations to you for committing to the GF diet. I KNOW IT WORKS and I am so glad that you now know too. And there is still sooo much more you can do so if you do start to feel symptomatic again, please let me know and I will help you further. You can manipulate sugar, supplements, greens, self-care, emotional work etc to keep going deeper and deeper with your healing. You are living a life of SVT PREVENTION now. You didn’t ablate the accessory pathway, you are managing it by listening to your symptoms and dealing with the ROOT issues. I am so happy for you and proud of you. Do you have both my e-guides? If not, please email me and I will send you them for free. Lmadrigano@aol.com. They will continue to support you on your healing journey. My reward to you for being my star student and really taking back control of your health! Blessings, Laura

  • From Barb on The SVT Prevention Diet E-book

    Will this diet work for a-fib ?

    2018/11/09 at 3:02 pm
    • From laura on The SVT Prevention Diet E-book

      Barb, that is a great question. I believe it will. The guide is written to help people learn not just about the exact diet to follow but to really get a deep look into the power of food and the food connection to inflammation and the impact of that. I discuss diet, self-care, vagal toning, the benefits of certain foods, why we are all so mineral depleted, food sensitivities and so much more. I think its a wealth of knowledge A-fib is in the a similar category and as I have a family member who is in constant a-fib, I am familiar with her situation and I know that if she did the diet she would improve. I promise you will find so much useful info in the guide, I know it will be a great tool for you and anyone who is suffering with SVT and related conditions! You have nothing to loose and everything to gain! xo Let me know!! xo

    Hi I almost cried reading the tips and all the comments. It’s almost 23 years now for me to live with SVT. Got detected and worsen when I was pregnant. I am planning to travel to Japan and I am down now knowing their health system are a bit tricky. Plus it’s upsetting when SVT is not covered via travel insurance! I have been to several countries and in flight for at most 18hrs and gladly no episodes. But to know I am not alone and we are really the same in handling it really makes me feel glad and thanks to the writer to let us have this platform. Take care and don’t forget your blocker.

    Hi Laura. I started using a magnesium supplement called “calm” about a year ago. I only take it once or twice a week but feel it really helps. What would be your recommendation for magnesium supplements? I have heard others on your facebook page mention Heart calm and other specific types of magnesium. Could you let me know your thoughts?

  • From Michael Yavo on Sleep + SVT

    I’ve had SVT at night while asleep now for many years. Ive also had two ablations, both claiming to have solved the problem. None of the doctors i’ve seen, and i’ve been to the best, including the Mayo Clinic, can explain why my SVT only occurs at night while I sleep. Since you specialize on this very narrow subject matter have you heard of people who have SVT and where it only occurs at night while asleep?

    2018/05/30 at 3:25 pm
    • From laura on Sleep + SVT

      Yes, Look up Heart Yin Deficiency and or Heart Blood Deficiency. I suffered with nighttime waking, palpitations and SVT mid-sleep for years prior to changing my diet and lifestyle. Its extremely common, and one of the main co-symptoms of SVT that many people deal with. Diet is crucial to examine.

  • From Elizabeth on My Heal SVT Naturally Success Story

    It feels like Im reading my own bio. Im convinced my overall anxiety, diet and stress levels contribute to my recently diagnosed SVT. I only have had one bad episode that landed me in the hospital but resolved on its own. First cardiologist said beta blocker and ablation. Second one said beta blocker and exercise…that was getting a little closer. Only I really am against taking ANY medication because of all the side effects. I dealt with my anxiety attacks in my twenties by going to therapy, and hadn’t had one in years until I watched my father die from lung cancer last year. Looking forward to learning more and the healing along the journey.

    2018/05/04 at 10:55 pm
    • From laura on My Heal SVT Naturally Success Story

      Dear Elizabeth, Im so sorry about your father. Many times SVT comes up after a stressful emotional times in people’s lives. I never had ablation or went on any type of medication. There is so much you can do with diet and to reduce your body burden and heart energy issues to reduce your risk of episodes. Are you gluten free yet? Have you read my first e-guide? Our stories sound very similar especially regarding our experience with anxiety and doctors! When a parent passes away, and even before, there are many childhood issues that come up for healing, grieving, and release. Im sure this is a very taxing time for you and SVT thrives on depletion. Lots to share and I hope to learn more about you! All the best,

  • From Katie Mcguinness on My Heal SVT Naturally Success Story

    Hi wish I had found this site before I had the dreaded ablation but hey ho! Whilst the SVT episodes have ceased the trauma/fear continue “have I caused other issues” diet/lifestyle/hormones I know are massive triggers just want to move forward now!

    2018/05/03 at 8:33 am
    • From laura on My Heal SVT Naturally Success Story

      Hi Katie, Do not worry or beat yourself up about your decision. You can just do your best to take great care of yourself, and still work on all the things that are root causes even though you had ablation. You can probably think back to when you had episodes and try to relate them to diet, or stress, or dehydration etc, so you can still use some of that evidence to make changes to help yourself. You can also do a stool sample or other labs to find out about what your foods sensitivities are. Hopefully you are feeling better, which will motivate you to take the best care of yourself possible and elevate your diet, stress management and self-care. Wishing you all the best, Laura

        Hi Thank you so much for your reply! I really didn’t expect it, I wish I had found your blog b4 I had my ablation it really would have deterred me!
        Never mind can’t change the past but I am embracing such changes that are really helping ditching the glueten & sugar, much more plant based organic diet proper rest & listening to my body in general really does help! Menopause is the next obstacle & I have always wondered if hormones play a bigger role than any “specialist” care to mention! 1yr on and no episodes just need the “fear” of one to disappear but I’m working on that! Every day is a new day, small steps & all that! Keep up this amazing site thank you!

        2018/05/22 at 1:20 pm
        • From laura on My Heal SVT Naturally Success Story

          Hi Katie! Sounds like you are really embracing your diet and lifestyle!! Good for you. Don’t worry that you had the ablation. As long as you address the deeper issues like your gut integrity and avoiding food sensitivities you are not doing further harm and ARE Addressing some of your root causes. Im not totally against any kind of modern medicine, I just know that when it comes to SVT, the medication and treatments have no consideration for Diet and lifestyle which really play a huge role. I just want to steer people in that direction in addition to traditional options. And, in many many cases, like my own, these changes are enough to completely prevent SVT. Its just insane how sick I was and how much diet and lifestyle, and listening to my heart changed my health and life and…the elimination of my SVT. BUT, its always a work in progress, and I live a lifestyle of constant prevention. Since SVT is my Achilles heel I will always have to live to prevent it, but it keeps me on track, and I respect my body and my limits because of it! Keep in touch! And let me know if you want to write a blog post about your approach. I think it would very interesting for people to hear your story…How you chose ablation and are doing all the diet and lifestyle as well. Many people would love to hear about that route!
