Thanks for your query.
There in no available method or medicine to increase the LVEF (ejection fraction) of the heart but with yoga annd walking he will be able to maintain it.The LVEF decreases with growing age,diseases like heart attack,congestive cardiac failure..The ejection fraction of 43% if it is at present it is perfectly fine and should not cause any problem to your father.
You can discuss it in detail with your Cardiologist and he shall guide you.
Take care.
