How do you treat AFib naturally

Atrial fibrillation: natural treatments and remedies

Atrial fibrillation is the most common cardiac arrhythmia in Central Europe. Since it often occurs without recognizable causes - and also has a relatively high rate of self-healing - many patients prefer natural healing methods in addition to conventional medical treatment.

Patients with cardiac arrhythmias or hypertension are increasingly turning to alternative healing methods

The atrial fibrillation absolute arrhythmia is the most common cardiac arrhythmia in Central Europe. The number of people affected in Germany is over 300,000, while arterial hypertension is the cause of almost a third. However, since atrial fibrillation often occurs without any identifiable cause - and also has a relatively high self-healing rate - many patients prefer natural healing methods in addition to conventional medical treatment. These include a change in lifestyle, abstaining from alcohol, reducing body weight and various techniques from Asian medicine.

Small needles, big impact?

Acupuncture is a traditional Chinese treatment method that, according to a study published in the journal Evidence-Based Complementary and Alternative Medicine published can help control your heart rate. During this treatment, small needles are placed on specific points on the body to improve the flow of energy. This is said to help treat heart rhythm problems. However, more research is needed in this area.

Increase well-being with yoga

Yoga focuses on regular breathing, meditation, and posture. According to one study, one hour of yoga three days a week is said to reduce atrial fibrillation. It is not yet known exactly how yoga can reduce atrial fibrillation. Researchers believe that yoga generally reduces stress and inflammation, which is beneficial for the heart.

Herbs and nutritional supplements

The Chinese herbal extract Wenxin Keli (WXKL) is said to be able to limit symptoms of atrial fibrillation. An overview of current studies on this herbal extract summarizes the following possible effects:

  • Positive effects from the sinus rhythm
  • Similar benefits to the beta blockers Sotalol
  • Reduce symptoms such as chest tightness, racing heart, or trouble sleeping

A healthy lifestyle with a balanced diet, plenty of exercise and little stress will help reduce the risk of cardiac arrhythmias. A combination of medication and natural treatments is often the best solution for patients.
