My husband has AF he is 52. He has been on Amiodarone and apixaban for some time, he was also on Warfarin in between Ablations to fix AF and Flutter, he has had 2 ablations and 2 cardioversions. Our health fund HCF (australian) has refused any further attempts to fix the AF. His latest visit to the cardiologist has recommended he go off the Amiodarone and onto Diltiazem CD 180mg daily. He has mild depression especially after each proceedure only sticks in sinus rhythm for a few days then back into AF. We have been told that there are natural cures for AF, eg; lose weight keep fit etc, has anyone had any success with seeing a naturopath for this condition? I am very worried about the long term affects of these drugs hes on. Should I be?
