Found some interesting notes in an aticle about new treatments for AF. Interestingly the presence of Inflamation is said to associated with all AF cases which mirrors my naturopaths comments that inflamation is the cause of the majority of dieseses.
When I had AF she got me in a sensible anti inflammatary diet which aimed to cut down on all processed foods and sugars. And so far so good, I've been AF Free for a while since my Cardioversion.

consider low intensity TENS or electrical stimulation to the tragus of the ear: a new study shows that low level TENS stimulation to the forward part of the outer ear suppresses AF in canines.
acupuncture applied to PC-6 (Neiguan), HT-7 (Shenmen) and BL-15 (Xinshu): The effects of acupuncture were evaluated in a 12 mo follow-up period in a study. In patients with persistent AF, the recurrence rate after acupuncture treatment was similar to that observed in patients on amiodarone, but significantly smaller than that measured after sham acupuncture treatment or in the absence of any antiarrhythmic drugs.
Yoga: A study was done looking at the effects of yoga on patients with paroxysmal AF. In patients with paroxysmal AF, yoga improves symptoms, arrhythmia burden, heart rate, blood pressure, anxiety and depression scores, and several domains of quality of life.
