The pulse rate is controlled by electrical impulses that originate in the sinus node, which is located in the right atrium, or upper chamber, of the heart. Cardiac arrhythmia increase mortality and diminish quality of life.
According to several studies that were reviewed, 87% to 100% of participants converted to normal sinus rhythm after acupuncture. Acupuncture seems to be effective in treating several cardiac arrhythmias.
In a groundbreaking laboratory experiment, the researchers proved that acupuncture prevents atrial fibrillation through restoration and remodeling of the right atrial appendage.
Acupuncture is a safe and effective therapy that may be applied, in conjunction with Western medicine, to prevent atrial fibrillation and exert an anti-arrhythmic effect.
Furthermore, the autonomic nervous system dynamically controls the response of the body to a range of external and internal stimuli, providing physiological stability. Heart Rate Variability (HRV) is a measure of the naturally occurring beat-to-beat changes in heart rate. It serves as a critical method for gauging human health and resiliency. HRV measures regulation of the heart by the autonomic nervous system. It has been well documented in the literature that acupuncture improves HRV in humans.
