The easiest way to normalize the heart rate is to hold your breath, which is carried out as follows. You should strain and hold your breath for 10 seconds, straining the abdominal muscles. This method is ineffective for supraventricular tachycardia. If this action fails, consult a doctor immediately.
Atrial fibrillation is removed with the help of medications, which are selected by the attending physician individually for each patient.
Also, one of the methods of getting rid of arrhythmias is the installation of a pacemaker, which is a small device, the size of a matchbox, implanted into the patient's pectoral muscle. Its purpose is to control the rhythm of the heartbeat and stimulate it if necessary.
You should not rely only on medications. The arrhythmia that appears requires lifestyle adjustments. Avoid excessive physical activity, do not allow prolonged stay in a stuffy room, in the sun. Do not change the climatic zones drastically.
Lead a healthy lifestyle - completely quit smoking, do not abuse alcoholic beverages, coffee, strong tea, carbonated drinks. Exercise regularly in the morning, walk more in the fresh air, do not abuse television and computer vigil.
On the other hand, you should not go to extremes with health-improving procedures - running, dousing with cold water can provoke a severe attack of arrhythmia. Moderation in everything should become a permanent norm of life.
Review your regular diet and adjust it to the needs of the heart muscle, which requires sufficient potassium and magnesium to function properly. Be sure to regularly eat dried apricots, walnuts, peeled baked potatoes, and garlic. Cucumbers, zucchini, pumpkin, parsley, apples, fresh grapes, pears, and strawberries are also very useful.
Limit intake of sweet, fatty, rich products.
