Daugherty's "instant palpitation relief"?

I've been dealing with an assortment of arrythmias for that last 10 years and just read about Steven Daugherty's "Instant Relief from Heart Palpitations" e-book, which he claims teaches a 'natural' technique for stopping palpitations. Has anyone tried this? Is it a not-worth-$20 gimmick? Thanks for any advice.

Like they say:

"If it sounds too good to be true, it probably is."

Personally, I wouldn't buy it.

Thanks. That's what I'm inclined to think, too. I can't find any reviews of his "methods" anywhere - also suspicious.
Thanks for your input.

I did a quick Google search...I think he promotes EFT (Emotional Freedom Techniques). Here's a url: http://www.emofree.com

I was willing to spend the 14.97 price, gave the site my information, got a receipt for the purchase and only when you try to download the ebook do they tell you that Mac users cannot read these ebooks.  It's a difficult site to maneuver and not easy to understand.  Mac users be aware.
Now that chuparosa says it's based on EFT, I'm no longer interested in it since there are plenty of books and info on EFT.  Thanks.

The eBook Instant Relief for Heart Palpitations (by Steve Daugherty) helped me many years ago  but I am not sure it is available anymore ...As I recall it was mostly about using EMT (Emotional Freedom Technique) of Tapping to stop the palpitations. It worked for me and since I’m dealing with those 'feelings again' that is how I came to comment on this thread.
This time I think my heart palpitations were brought on by sampling a Multi with green coffee and green tea in it but I'd forgotten about the ebook because I thought my feelings were a candida die off reaction to Niacin (as niacinamide and niacin) that was also in the supplement sample I took.  I found my printed copy of Daugherty's book and am going to review it again for help. I know this is an old thread but thought it might help someone else. Heart Palpitations are very uncomfortable but not dangerous. Arrhythmias on the other hand might be serious like---Atrial fibrillation (aka Afib), tachycardia etc. Anyone having concerns should go have their heart checked out by a doctor ASAP!   I did when I first experienced this years ago and I wore a heart monitor for a few days to check out my heart-- they concluded it was my hypothyroidism flipping into 'Hyper' for a bit and prescribed me a beta blocker to keep on hand.  My husband has had Full out Afib and he has been controlling that by taking Magnesium, CoQ10, Cod Liver Oil etc. He learned great tips from Sherry Rogers book "Is Your Cardiologist Killing You?"  I don't like the title but I prayerfully gave my husband's cardiologist a copy because we believe it has 'simple things' that can save folks a lot of pain, suffering and heartache.  Hubby is also using Buteyko Breathing to help his snoring that we think had been a contributing factor to his bouts of Afib.  (From Wikipedia The Buteyko method or Buteyko Breathing Technique is a form of complementary or alternative physical therapy that proposes the use of breathing exercises as a treatment for asthma as well as other conditions.)
Our faith has led us to these helps I’ve shared. Our faith is of grace and is in the person and the work of The Lord Jesus Christ.
I Hope and Pray sharing this helps someone else who might see this.
