Before considering a remedy, a problematic diagnosis should be appreciated.  You do not provide very much information and having said that almost all EKG tracings should be evaluated with clinical manifestations.

To assess just based on your report, ST-T wave abnormalities may be related to ischemia (occluded coronary vessels), infarction (heart attack), electrolyte abnormalities, medications, etc. and because there is specificiity (i.e. elevated or depressed) as stated the finding must be correlated with the patient's clinical status.

Just label ST abnormality” rather than “ST segment depression” would be appropriate if the ST segments are less than 1 mm depressed and are accompanied by a normally-oriented T wave and can also be caused by rapid heart rate, etc.  Sinus rhythm is also undefined...it could be fast heart rate (>100 at rest) or slow heart rate <60 at rest.

What are your symptoms, other clinical signs, fast or slow heart rate, etc.?

Hope this helps and if you have any further questions or commenst you are welcome to respond.  Take care,
