Many possibilities: First, he needs an accurate diagnosis. There are many kinds of fast heart beat and they're treated differently. He also needs an evaluation of his heart's health. Sometimes healthy hearts beat abnormally fast but sometimes fast heart beat is a sign of something else. There are no foods or exercises he can take or do that will fix the problem reliably. It's also possible that it will just go away.
