Antiarrhythmic drugs are often used to help control the heart rate and rhythm.
These drugs can help to prevent AFib from happening, or they can be used to try and restore a normal heart rhythm.

Catheter ablation might be recommended as a procedure that uses radiofrequency energy to destroy small areas of the heart tissue that are causing the AFib.
Making lifestyle changes can also help to reduce your risk of AFib while keeping your heart healthy. Recent research highlights these options.
Studies show that the advantages of using yoga therapy for atrial fibrillation (AFib) were caused by changes in the activity of the autonomic nervous system at the level of the hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal axis.
Research has revealed that acupuncture can decrease the frequency of AF relapses after cardioversion.
Additionally, several studies have indicated that taking vitamin C supplements can reduce the incidence of AF following cardioversion.
