May be best to leave: It may be best to leave it alone, especially if the low heart rate is not causing any symptoms like fainting. Vagotomy (surgically crushing some of the vagus nerve fibers) as well as vagolytic medications (which block the vagus nerve) are available, but why mess with this unless the condition is causing u symptoms? Count ur blessings, most people die from hypertension & fast (too fast) heart rate.
