    Home remedies and natural supplements that treat Wolff-Parkinson-White Syndrome focus on preventing episodes of rapid heartbeats. This condition will occasionally disappear, but more often is chronic and can lead to heart failure.

    Natural Remedies for Wolff-Parkinson-White Syndrome

    Home treatments should focus on keeping the heart rate steady and avoiding substances that will cause the heart to beat too fast.  Try to identify any triggers that cause episodes of rapid heartbeats.

    Apple Cider Vinegar and Baking Soda

    People have used apple cider vinegar (ACV) and baking soda to help regulate their heart rates. These two popular home remedies also remove toxins from the system, improve overall health, and alkalize pH.

    Vagal Maneuvers   

    This home treatment helps to regulate your heartbeat by affecting the vagus nerve. Coughing, putting an ice pack on your face and bearing down are examples of vagal maneuvers.

    Lifestyle Changes

    Alcohol, tobacco, caffeine in any form, and pseudoephedrine (a nasal decongestant) can make your heart beat faster, so it’s wise to avoid them.

    Find What Triggers Episodes

    This may be difficult, but figuring out whether the trigger is caused by a food, drink or supplement is important. One woman discovered that too much of a particular supplement caused her episodes.  

    Herbal Remedies for Wolff-Parkinson-White Syndrome

    There are no herbal cures for this heart condition. However, certain herbs can be used to help maintain a steady heartbeat. 

    Hawthorne Berry

    This herbal treatment for early stage heart conditions is good for the circulatory system.  Hawthorne Berry treats angina, high blood pressure and arrhythmia.

    Bilberry

    This herbal antioxidant is related to blueberries and has similar heart-healthy properties. Bilberry is used to improve circulation and lower cholesterol.

    Natural treatment goals are primarily to prevent future episodes of Wolf-Parkinson-White Syndrome and try to slow a too-fast heart beat when it happens.  The most effective allopathic treatment for most is the catheter ablation which permanently corrects the underlying physical problem.
