Radio Frequency Ablation

Radio Frequency AblationAcupuncture and Atrial Fibrillation

A study from the World Cardiology Journal demonstrated that acupuncture works as well as a common pharmaceutical to prevent recurrence of atrial fibrillation.
Atrial fibrillation is a very common heart rhythm abnormality, especially as people get older. About 10% of the population has “afib” by 80 years of age. It can be a very annoying condition where patients feel palpitations, lightheadedness, or shortness of breath. I prefer natural means to control this heart problem but there is no shortage of pharmaceutical options.

Another approach is to burn heart tissue in a procedure called Radio Frequency Ablation.

The main concern of atrial fibrillation is that it is a risk factor for stroke.
Go natural. Go after the cause. Add acupuncture to you regimen to prevent and treat heart rhythm abnormalities.

Please look at the graphs below and notice how acupuncture decreased the rate of AFIB episodes.
