Vagus Nerve Disorders Marjorie Treats

The vagus nerve serves as the primary element of the parasympathetic nervous system, governing essential bodily functions such as mood regulation, immune response, digestion, and heart rate. Our vagus nerve treatment can help with the following types of conditions:

  • Mental health disorders such as depression, anxiety, and PTSD
  • Sleep disorders including sleep apnea and insomnia
  • High blood pressure
  • Gastrointestinal disorders like irritable bowel syndrome (IBS)
  • Chronic inflammation
  • Pain management
  • Respiratory issues
  • Stress and tension
  • COVID long-haul symptoms

Benefits of Non-Invasive Vagus Nerve Therapy

The vagus nerve represents 80% of our Parasympathetic Nervous System (PNS), directly controlling digestion, detoxification, and immunity.

A breakthrough in Vagus Nerve therapy is the concept of non-invasive modulation of the auricular branch of the vagus nerve (ABVN), whether actively or passively. Scientifically recognized, this approach has been reported to enhance heart rate variability (HRV), activate the parasympathetic system, reduce inflammation, and improve lung functioning.

When the vagus nerve is modulated, electrical impulses travel to areas of the brain and this altered brain activity treats certain conditions. This method “wakes up” the PNS to benefit the human body in a variety of ways.

How Vagus Nerve Therapy Works

The vagus nerve, one of the 12 pairs of cranial nerves originating in the brain, plays a vital role in the autonomic nervous system, governing involuntary bodily functions. As it courses through the neck, bridging the chest, abdomen, and lower part of the brain, the vagus nerve is intricately linked to motor functions in the voice box, diaphragm, stomach, and heart. Additionally, it serves sensory functions in the ears, tongue, sinuses, and esophagus.

Vagus nerve therapy involves the delivery of regular, mild pulses of electrical energy to the brain via the vagus nerve. This process utilizes a device akin to a pacemaker, with no direct physical involvement of the brain. This type of electrical energy to specific areas of the brain effectively address certain conditions by awaking the Parasympathetic Nervous System (PNS).

Discover the Transformative Potential of VNS

Left undiagnosed and treated, issues with your vagus nerve can lead to more serious diseases such as cancer, chronic heart failure, migraines, mood disorders, obesity, poor blood circulation, and more. As the vagus nerve, a key player in the autonomic nervous system, influences an array of bodily functions, seeking VNS can be a transformative step towards enhanced mental and physical health. The potential benefits, ranging from improved mood regulation to alleviating chronic pain, underscore the significance of this therapy.
