: Is her heart damaged when this occurs? Is there any natural treatment for this other than beta blockers? Would a magnesium and/or Co-enzyme Q-10 supplement work? Is there no natural rememdy available? I would like to hear some details from anyone who has had the ablation work done.
I have not been told that episodes cause additional damage. It was explained to me that because of the interuption of electric current, your heart will continue to beat by another route but not very efficient in that state. SVT is not considered fatal. I take a calcium blocker, avoid caffiene, and avoid many things like cold medication. I would see an EP (electrophysiologist). Mine is much more proactive than my cardiologist. After several years living on meds, I have finally decided to have an ablation (maybe in 4 weeks). For me I didn't want to make a rash decision.
