Anyways.Feo..this is sort of the nurture vs nature debate. Essentially, its sort of 50-50. I can't say my life was anymore stressful than the average college student. I won't generalize for everyone, but for me my parents are both untreated hypothyroid, and thus it was passed down to me. Biology and the beauty of Science is that there are things we can clearly measure, i.e., pulse, bp, and basal temperature. I don't think Hypothyroidism is something that can be learned behavior. Years of untreated hypothyroidism is what caused my AF, along with constantly craving adrenaline as a kid and young adult. I have never met an AF'er who wasnt an adrenaline junkie. I'm only writing this because I spent almost two years wondering why this was happening to me. Even the "beloved" Dr. Lam speaks about an individuals constitution.
Say as you will. I didn't come here to piss people off. I simply see more and more people going in circles, when it seems the answers are so obvious for most situations. Everyone thinks its so complicated this AF stuff. It's quite simple. Even the supposed "cured" will for sure still have some genetic endocrinological weakness remaining, i.e, lack of resilience, exercise intolerance, etc
