A Letter from JANET STONE
The below letter is from a woman who is very appreciative of homeopathic medicine. Please note that the homeopathic medicine that she used may or may not have any value for you (or someone you know). This letter is simply a report about this person’s dramatic experience with homeopathic medicine. This letter is published with permission of its author.
NOTE: “Afib” refers to afibrillation: An irregular, often rapid heart rate that commonly causes poor blood flow.
The heart’s upper chambers (atria) beat out of coordination with the lower chambers (ventricles).
This condition may have no symptoms, but when symptoms do appear they include palpitations, shortness of breath, and fatigue.
Conventional medial treatments include drugs, electrical shock (cardioversion), and minimally invasive surgery (ablation).
Hi Dana Ullman,
Since the early 1990s I have used your homeopathy books as a guide for treating myself, my family, and my livestock (who can’t be influenced by placebo effects). I studied homeopathy over the years and recently completed degree in Biomedical Science from the University of Wisconsin so I could work as a patient advocate and represent people who desire to use complementary medicine. I even had a college course that was surprisingly favorable, so I have hope that eventually doctors will be a little more open-minded instead of calling homeopathy pseudoscience with no evidence of effectiveness.
I have had so many amazing responses to homeopathics over the years and homeopathy has been the mainstay of my treatment for challenging inherited health conditions as well as acquired illnesses. I sent an email to my functional medicine practitioner this morning to tell her about one of those experiences. She said that because I actually got it documented, I should write up a case study. But since I’m not a professional homeopath, I thought I’d just pass it on so you can share. I’ll paste in the email below.
Thank you for sharing your wisdom and experiences with the rest of us. It has been life-changing (and at times life-saving) for me to have the tools you provided.

I had to show you this documented reversal of AFib I experienced last night. I have a KardiaMobile 6-lead device that I got back when I was having more issues with arrhythmias. Other than a few PVCs now and then, I haven’t had any episodes for over a year (I did have AFib and SVT fairly often several years ago).
About 10 pm last night I was just reading in bed and suddenly I felt the abnormal rhythm start. I tried things that would help in the past like taking potassium and magnesium, deep breathing, using oxygen, stretching, etc, and nothing was touching it. This went on for four hours and if I was up for very long I would start to black out. Because I have an atrial septal aneurysm I’m much higher risk for stroke from AFib so I knew I couldn’t ignore it, but I really didn’t want to go in for cardioversion (my husband wasn’t here so I would have had to call the paramedics).
Just before 2 am I decided to look on my phone and see if there were any homeopathic remedies known to help with AFib. I read through several articles and the consensus seemed to be that Aconite and Digitalis were the two main remedies. Digitalis is more for left-sided heart failure (which I have had in the past) but figured it was worth a try since I had both remedies in a 30x potency. Within 30 seconds of taking a few pellets of each, my EKG went from the top reading to the bottom. I could feel the AFib stop and the dizziness immediately left. Over the next half hour my heart rate returned to a more normal 60-70 BPM as well.
I had sent in the full EKG from the app to one of the staff cardiologists at AliveCor who makes the device to be sure it really was fibrillation I was feeling since they are only allowed to flag it as “possible” without a professional diagnosis. His report confirmed it. When I see so-called medical professionals and scientists blasting homeopathy as pseudoscience and saying it’s only a placebo, effect I get pretty upset. You don’t placebo away fibrillation like that!
