Brain-zapping device reduces blood pressure twice as much as medication
The non-invasive, handheld device attaches to the tragus on the ear and sends waves of electricity into the brain Attribution: ByJoe Pinkstone, SCIENCE CORRESPONDENT 13 June 2022 • 6:00am A Walkman-like gadget that clips onto a person’s ears and zaps their brain with electric pulses is twice as effective at reducing blood pressure than medication, […]
Vagus Nerve and Inflammation
Inflammation and Chronic Illness For the past three decades there is growing scientific evidence that prolonged inflammation is the source of many chronic illnesses. Many researchers also believe that most age related illnesses and health issues can be linked to high levels of pro-inflammatory markers in the blood. Chronic inflammation is a strong predictor of […]
Should you try vagus nerve stimulation?
Your brain is actually the centre of a vast network of nerves - a complex system that extends throughout your body. Scientists refer to the brain and the spinal cord as the central nervous system and everything else as the peripheral nervous system. The peripheral nervous system is a bi-directional information highway, sending information from […]
Invasive and Non-invasive Vagus Nerve Stimulation Work in the Same Way
In previous posts we’ve pointed out that there is some evidence that the brain and body response to invasive and non-invasive vagus nerve stimulation appears to be very similar. Now scientists from Israel have added further evidence to support this idea. In a pre-print version of the paper published in the online biology research archive […]
Blood Pressure and tVNS
Two common benefits of vagus nerve stimulation are that it usually leads to an improvement  in heart rate variability (HRV) and a drop in blood pressure (BP). Both these ‘biomarkers’ are important indicators of your long term health. Knowledge of the importance of maintaining a healthy blood pressure has been well known for a long […]
The Amazing Ear - why auricular vagus nerve stimulation?
From Surgery to Skin If you are on our website, you will very likely have heard something of the vagus nerve and how important it is to general health and well being. If you haven’t, you can look through our site or read some of our older blog posts to learn more about it. Similarly, […]
A (very) Brief History of Electrical Vagus Nerve Stimulation
Vagus nerve stimulation has a long precedence in medicine. As early as 1880, physicians noted that compression of the vagus nerve in the neck could abort seizures. It was not fully understood at first that this was specifically actuated by compression of the nerve rather than the carotid artery, which runs alongside the nerve, but […]
