I would like to have an opinion from you.
I am 61 years old. My free testosterone is low at 6.23 and my total testosterone is at 374.
I then learned that Bulbine Natalensis could help increase testosterone by about 3 times. I then read all the published scientific articles on Bulbine Natalensis and decided to give it a try.
I bought Bulbine Natalensis from SNS and started taking 1 pill per day.
After four days taking one pill a day I started to take the recommended dosage of two pills per day.
I then started not feeling well, and then I reduced the dosage back to one pill a day. I started to feel better again. I then thought that I had overdosed it as explained in the articles (mice appeared sluggish on overdose).
I then took it for thirteen days more. And then for the next two days, I doubled the dosage back to two pills.
As soon as I doubled, I then felt very tired and felt that I was not even driving well.
I then stopped taking it altogether for one whole month.
After this one month, I decided to give it a try once again, and I resumed taking two pills per day (one in the morning, one in the evening).
During this whole week I felt nothing - I thought that probably it would work this time.
However, after exactly seven days I had a lone atrial fibrillation episode which took me to emergency for 12 hours in a row. My AF was successfully reversed by amioradone followed by propaphenone.
This was my very first atrial fibrillation - I became scared of taking Bulbine again.
To be on the fair side, the label on the flask carries the manufacturer's warning that one "should not use the product if one has any medical condition including, but not limited to .... heart disease."
Too late for me!
I stopped taking Bulbine Natalensis altogether until things get completely clarified to my satisfaction. Better safe than sorry.
My question is: does any of you know anything about Bulbine Natalensis and atrial fibrillation? Could Bulbine have caused my atrial fibrillation or not? I do not know that.
P.S. To be transparent, I was also taking the following supplements the whole time: pygeum, B-complex, vitamin D3 (2000iu per day) and using a little magnesium oil at night to sleep better.
