Atrial Fibrillation Ayurvedic Treatment

Author : Gurnam Saini  

Heartfelt Healing: Ayurvedic Strategies for Atrial Fibrillation


Atrial fibrillation is a cardiac disorder caused due to an irregular and rapid heart rate. The increased heart rate can affect cardiac functions, reducing its efficiency in pumping blood. This can reduce the blood supply to the vital organs, thus increasing the risk of stroke and cardiac failure. Alternative Indian traditional science, Ayurveda, may also offer natural atrial fibrillation treatment to regulate the heartbeats and control the heart rate.[1]


During atrial fibrillation, the heart's upper two chambers, the atria, beat irregularly. As a result, there is a loss of coordination of the contractions in the two lower heart chambers called the ventricles.


Due to this, the amount of blood pumped out of the ventricles with each heartbeat is reduced. Abnormal heart rhythms natural treatment using herbs recommended by Ayurveda principles may help to relieve these symptoms by regularizing the contractions of the atria and ventricles in coordinated ways. [2]


Symptoms of Atrial Fibrillation


The symptoms of atrial fibrillation, also called A-Fib, include palpitations, increased sweating, shortness of breath, and severe weakness. 


The atrial fibrillation ayurvedic diet, which involves eating foods that promote heart functions and avoiding high-fat foods that worsen heart functions, is also an important tool to address AF naturally. A healthy diet is highly recommended to obtain long-term relief from the symptoms of this condition.


Some other symptoms of atrial fibrillation include a sensation of a racing or uncomfortable heartbeat with an annoying flip-flopping in the chest. Patients may also experience a reduced ability to exercise due to extreme fatigue and dizziness. They may also develop confusion, reduced mental alertness, and chest pain due to irregular heartbeats.


Atrial fibrillation may be occasional or persistent. When the symptoms of atrial fibrillation occur occasionally, the condition is referred to as paroxysmal atrial fibrillation. Patients suffering from this form of A-Fib develop symptoms that come spontaneously, last for a few minutes to hours, and resolve without active treatment. Patients may use natural remedies for AFib to avoid or minimize recurring episodes of paroxysmal atrial fibrillation.


The heart continues to beat irregularly in patients with persistent atrial fibrillation, and the symptoms persist. In such cases, active medical intervention is needed to restore the normal heart rate and rhythm.


Causes of Atrial Fibrillation


The possible causes of atrial fibrillation include abnormalities and damage to the heart due to factors such as:



The use of natural remedies for heart arrhythmia is recommended for patients who have a high risk of developing atrial fibrillation due to the presence of these risk factors. Ayurveda also recommends making healthy lifestyle changes, such as reducing alcohol and caffeine consumption, which can help to prevent this disease.


Natural Remedy for Irregular Heartbeat


Ayurvedic naturopaths may advise combining herbs and spices with prevention strategies. Some of the prevention strategies for atrial fibrillation include eating a heart-healthy diet, avoiding smoking, increasing physical activities, and limiting the consumption of caffeine and alcohol.


Ayurvedic Herbs For Atrial Fibrillation


Arjuna (Terminalia arjuna): Arjuna is considered the important natural heart tonic. It is one of the ayurvedic herbs that can naturally regularize the heart rate and rhythm. It can help relieve palpitations, sweating, and breathing difficulties caused due to atrial fibrillation. [3]


Ayurvedic research studies consider Arjuna Terminalia as a cardiotonic. According to Jain et al. 2009, Miller 1998 the active organic constituents present in AT, such as tannins, triterpenoid saponins, flavonoids, gallic acid, ellagic acid, oligomeric proanthocyanidins, and phytosterols, have been used for centuries in ayurvedic medicine as a cardiotonic for treatment of various cardiovascular disorders, including heart failure. According to Gauthaman et al., the crude powder of arjuna bark attenuated ischemia/reperfusion-induced myocardial injury by reducing oxidative stress.


Brahmi (Bacopa monnieri): Brahmi can be used to reduce the risk of panic attacks, stroke, and cardiac failure linked to atrial fibrillation. It can help support normal heart functions and enhance the blood supply to vital organs.


Gokshura (Tribulus Terrestris): Patients can naturally use Gokshura for arrhythmia treatment. This Indian herb may possess therapeutic properties that help regulate heartbeats and prevent abnormal heart rhythms.


Heart Flutter Alternative Treatment with Indian Medicine


Ayurveda can offer heart flutter alternative treatment aimed at supporting the natural functions of the heart. This system of Indian medicine recommends using herbs, lifestyle, food, yoga, and breathing exercises that can enhance the heart's efficiency naturally so that the blood supply to all the organs is restored.


The ayurvedic treatments are also based on the concept of three doshas. The herbs prescribed aim to correct the imbalance of the underlying dosha, thus maintaining an optimum balance in the body.

  • 3+ years ago just before covid hit, I had sudden intolerance to a string of food predominantly gluten, cow's milk, egg and night shade vegetables. Energy was low and brain was foggy. I consulted and tried other treatments but minimal improvement. I was recommended to Drs Saini and Pooja by a friend who came out of her issues after ayurvedic treatments. Without hesitation, i consulted and started my ayurvedic journey 2+ years ago. It was the best decision I made. During those time, I had 2 sessions of panchakarma treatments. 2+ years later, I can now confidently say that I am able to incorporate gluten and cows milk products into my diet without any issue. My energy is back to normal and the other bonus for me is that unnecessary food cravings have diminished. I am very grateful and appreciated Drs Saini & Pooja's dedication and patient throughout my ayurvedic journey...

  • Highly recommend seeing Pooja for various womens health issues. Pooja offers long term alternative approaches to self managing one's health with the holistic ayurvedic system. Her manner and concern is sincere and she is very conscious of leaving you with the tools you need to take care of yourself beyond her consultations.

  • I am writing this review so that everyone gets to know about the most capable Ayurvedic doctor of Melbourne, Dr. Saini and could reach out to him for almost any condition they might be suffering from. I was suffering from Migraine headache almost everyday but after taking the medicines prescribed by Dr. Saini, my headache almost vanished. These Ayurvedic medicines helped me in controlling my stress magnificently. I hope my review could help others who are suffering from anxiety and stress or any other chronic disorder. Please try the Ayurvedic(herbal) medicines for once as they don't have any side effects. They also have the facility of Ayurvedic massage which can definitely help the hard-working professionals out there. I hope everyone could get this miraculous treatment of Ayurveda.

  • I have been struggling with IBS-C related gut issues for over 10 years, have been eating low fodmap for many years with no resolutions to my gut function. Recently I’ve been seeing Gurnam Saini (Ayurvedic Doctor) and in only one month of treatment with natural therapies I’ve seen outstanding results. Previously I was unable to digest foods properly/unable to have regular or efficient bowel movements (feeling very unwell due to this), back pain related to abdominal pain, having trouble sleeping and low energy. I’m currently one month into treatment and I never thought I’d be able to restore regular gut function, but I’m properly digesting foods, my sleep is phenomenal and I have a surge in energy, most importantly my mind feels clear and focused with no brain fog and I feel like myself again after years living with the stress of IBS. I’m going to start re-introducing foods in 6 months and have great faith in the knowledge and professionalism shown by Gurnam Saini and the team at Pure Herbal Ayurved Clinic.

  • I was suffering from ibs from a long time urgency to go to toilet and mucus in stool . Even I ordered medicine from India but it wasn’t work and proper guidelines there, they just there for sale the medicine only . Dr shani only one months medicine improved 80% of my gut problem . If anyone suffering from symptoms like ibs or gut issue I will definitely recommend to visit dr shani clinic .

  • Hello all, I have been consulting Dr. Saini for past 2years or so and have found his treatment very helpful and effective. He has a deep knowledge of Aryuveda and listens to your health issues, doubts and concerns patiently and advices Aryuved herbs and gives advice accordingly. He is kind and easy to talk to. I highly recommend Dr. Saini to anyone who is looking for treatment for their health issues or improving their overall health.

  • I decided to take my 10 yr old daughter to Dr Saini after 9.5 yrs of struggling with eczema and food intolerances, and no solutions found but topical, long term use of cortisone creams. After only one month, we saw massive improvements in her skin, finally clearing up the majority of her eczema. This was done with herbal capsules and without needing to remove various foods from her diet. That improvement allowed us to tackle other health concerns like her consistent disturbed sleep. Now 4 months on, her skin is perfect, and her sleep is mostly uninterrupted. Any sporadic nighttime waking is for a very short period of time. And even better, now we can focus on her digestion which is my last concern for her. I can’t recommend Ayurvedic medicine enough to gently and naturally heal and balance out your body. l had done lots of reading on Ayurveda before we tried it, and all my expectations have been met and I’m sure will be exceeded in the near future. Thank you Dr Saini, for your kind and gentle consultations, and genuine interest in better health outcomes for your patients.

  • Dr Saini has been so supportive in working with me to refine my mind, body and spirit to once again be able to consume gluten. Once I was diagnosed as gluten-intolerant, I thought I would never eat gluten again. But by embracing the ways of Ayurveda, I am now eating gluten on a daily basis that is pain free and discomfort free. Joseph Ferguson

  • I’ve had sinus problems my whole life, sneezing multiple times a day, always had a blocked nose and snoring quite bad. After my treatment with Dr Saini, my breathing is so much better, my nose is now unblocked and snoring has reduced dramatically. My sneezing has also reduced a lot. I recommend his treatments if you have similar issues
