Sin embargo, el uso de la medicina integrativa (integrative medicine, IM) para restablecer el ritmo cardiaco no se ha estudiado adecuadamente. El informe de este caso describe c�mo se us� un enfoque de IM en una paciente con fibrilaci�n auricular y dolor agudo. Se produjo una cardioversi�n espont�nea a un ritmo sinusal normal durante la sesi�n de IM, adem�s de una reducci�n marcada del dolor, la ansiedad y las n�useas notificados por la paciente al finalizar el tratamiento de la IM.
