EEM aids Arrhythmia

Family Member Going Off Atenolol After 20 Years

By Karen L. Semmelman, EEMCP, JD, AAML

A family member (whom I’ll call Mark) was placed on atenolol 20 years ago because he had a rapid heart rate during a stress test. No deficiencies were found in the heart structure or supporting veins. The cardiologist believed, however, that it was a good preventative to use this beta blocker — to make sure excess adrenaline did not make its way to the heart with adverse effects.

I taught Mark some basics of Eden Energy Medicine (EEM), and he found that when he did have periodic arrhythmic beats of his heart, tracing Heart meridian forward at least three times or biting down on both little fingers at the nail beds (acupressure points at end of Heart meridian) would stop the irregularity. Encouraged by these results, he consulted with a naturopathic doctor who suggested that it might be in his best interest to wean himself from the atenolol.

Previously, at Mark’s request, I had tested the atenolol against his alarm points, and they had each tested weak (even after I had corrected any irregularity in the alarm points). Also, when the atenolol was placed in his field, his previously strong Spleen meridian went very weak. Even Mark could see that the pills were considered toxic by his body.

  • Thus, with his doctor’s blessing, over a period of several months Mark reduced his atenolol dosage from two pills to one pill per day. If he had any irregular heart activity, he traced his Heart meridian forward or bit on his little fingers. But when he tried to reduce the amount to ½ pill per day, Mark found that his heart rate accelerated markedly, so he decided he would just continue taking one pill per day until some indefinite time in the future.

Several months later, our family arranged to meet at a vacation resort. Mark left home on Wednesday and forgot his atenolol. For several days, he had only periodic symptoms of an inconsequential nature that he fixed in his regular way. But on Sunday morning, his heart rate, which was normally around 60, was now racing at 95 and had been up to 120.

Mark told me that he’d read online that the effects of withdraw from atenolol did include rapid heart rate. He thought that was what was happening and wanted to know if I could assist him. I gladly agreed but did suggest he contact a local physician to obtain his medication in case he needed it.

Mark didn’t want to make a big deal out of the situation and asked if we could just try to deal with it in a casual way. I told him we could try for a while, but if his heart rate didn’t stabilize soon, we would seek medical help. He agreed.

  • Settled quietly on the living room couch, I held the strengthening points for Heart meridian on Mark for about 10 minutes. While I held the points, I had Mark hold his own Heart Source Points. I then checked his Flow and Control Cycles and found that Water to Heart (Fire Rhythm) was disconnected, as was Wood to Heart (Fire Rhythm), so I reconnected them.

As we worked, Mark’s pulse rate kept reducing. We were able to get the rate from 95 down to 80. However, we were both still concerned, so we moved into the bedroom so he could lie down and I could assess his energy systems more easily.

I did the following:

  • Checked and corrected irregularities in Lung, Heart, Liver, and Circulation-Sex Alarm Points (all of which relate to Heart meridian in one way or another).

Did a Quickie Energy Balancer.
Connected the Heart Electric Point to the Groin Electric Point.
Did a Deep Electrics session for one hour.

During the Deep Electrics session, since I was sitting at Mark’s head, I found it very effective to place the top of my head at the pineal point against the top of his head at the same point. After holding this position with our heads touching for about 15 minutes, I felt a major surge of my energy tap into Mark’s energy. I removed my head, rested for 10 minutes, then held my head against Mark’s for another 10 minutes, with the same energy surge effect.

As the Deep Electrics session progressed, Mark checked his pulse regularly and found it was dramatically reducing. By about 30 minutes into the session, it was down to a 68 pulse rate, and by the time the Deep Electrics session was completed, his rate was down to 62. As I finished the session, sedated Kidney meridian, and stabilized his body with figure 8s, his rate was at 60, where it held.

  • The next morning, Mark reported that his rate was back up to 80, and I reminded him that he needed to hold his Heart Strengthening Points each morning and hold the Heart Source Points several times during the day. I also showed him the homework for the reconnections we had made with his Flow and Control Cycles.

He has done his homework faithfully, and his heart rate has stayed regular without the atenolol. I am so appreciative, as is Mark, that we had these tools at our fingertips to support his body and help it regain stability. This truly is the magic of Energy Medicine.

(My Comment:

Some of you may be wondering why, if I am so enamored with Eden Energy Medicine and seem to espouse it so highly, why I don’t speak more of the benefits which I have received  for myself.    It is not for lack of trying.  I have even tried to get a practitioner to go see, but found none in the Columbus area.  Nothing would please me more! 

In each of the stories of the case histories of Eden Energy Medicine, one might notice that testing is done before any treatment and continues throughout the process.  It is simple and quick, not a problem, but one can’t do it on self (easily).  This process can be learned alone or by one’s self, but the testing is done by another.  It is so advantageous to have a partner, friend or neighbor to assist in this.  I have no one as I live alone.   So far, I have been unable to find a buddy to work with.    But the Five minute energy routine is so simple and amazing, that has made a big difference in my life.  I still read her book and watch the CD videos as I can.   

I would sincerely advise any of you  to put “Donna Eden’s 5 Minute Energy Routine” into your browser to bring this up in YouTube, and when you find good exercises you profit from – – “Bookmark” them so that you can access them as you need to. Donna stresses that everyone should do this first thing in morning and even during day if need to.   It has an accumulative effect in it’s ability to even and lift one’s energies and to harmonize all one’s systems to work more effectively – – and I swear that is true.   Meanwhile, I’m throwing out to the universe – “I need a Buddy to work EEM with”  . . . Okay,  just a matter of time.   .    .    .     Jan)



  1. I leave a comment each time I especially enjoy a post on a website or I have something to add to the discussion.
    It is triggered by the fire displayed in the post I looked at.

    And on this article EEM aids Arrhythmia | SMOKINCHOICES (and
    other musings). I was moved enough to write a comment ;-) I
    actually do have a few questions for you if you usually do not mind.

    Is it just me or does it look as if like a few of these responses come across like coming from brain dead people?
    :-P And, if you are writing at other online social sites, I’d like to follow you. Could you make a list all of all your community pages like your Facebook page, twitter feed, or linkedin profile?

    • Steven, I appreciate that many take the time to drop a line when a relevant comment is made which pertains to the post just commented on. The same applies to you as well. You claim to have enjoyed the article, but say not one word about the significance of the intent of the piece, which makes one wonder if in fact, you even read it, or just wanted to see your own name listed here. But those so-called “brain-dead” you refer to are just using smokinchoices to view their own name on the page. I do not appreciate these in any way and would be better off without them.

      I do not have the time or inclination to participate in any of the other social media sites. I don’t use them, go there or know anything about them. NO INTEREST at all.
