The slow heart rate could be a sign and not the etiology.
Pts with vasodepressor syndrome or nuerocardiogenic syncope can present like this. A stress echo , a holter , and a tilt table test along with labs including thyroid panel should be done . A complete h&p should be done of course and a list of all meds including natural supplements.

In brief: Bradycardia
I agree with medical student, david miller- bardycardia is defined as a heart rate below 60 beats per minute.
It can have a wide variety of causes and can certainly cause the symptoms you described. He needs to follow up with is doc and possibly see a cardiologist.
