During our morning walk, on our lovely beach near our home in Costa Rica, we took our morning swim in the warm Pacific Ocean. Occasionally, there are jellyfish present and I experienced some stings from them. The stings are mild and create, what I thought would be a mild reaction, itching and stinging of the skin area touched. Adrian experienced the same symptoms.
After swimming, we continued our walk. Shortly thereafter, I experienced a very rapid heartbeat, to the extent of becoming light-headed. I immediately tapped for it and it reduced somewhat. However, it did not stop. So, we sat down on the sand and I began testing.
Most often, atrial fib and rapid heartbeat are aggravated by toxins so I tried to see what I may have used or eaten that morning but came up with nothing that was a toxin. After sitting there for about 10 minutes, still with rapid heartbeat, I remembered the jellyfish stings. I tested it and sure enough, it was a toxin. I immediately tested and used the toxin treatment.
The rapid heartbeat then slowly stopped. Within about 2 minutes all traces of the atrial fib were gone. Now, had I not had the tools to do the testing and neutralization, I could have rushed off to the emergency room, undergone all kinds of tests, and then been offered medication to handle it.
NOTE: I am relatively sensitive to insect bites and this kind of reaction, and highly allergic to bees. Adrian had no reaction to the jellyfish.
While I am certainly not advocating that you not use emergency medical attention when needed, I feel it is a blessing to be able to test and identify then neutralize this kind of effect. I do believe we all should have that kind of control and power for self-healing.
Stay safe and stay healthy,
